US

July 2018 our journey to find the perfect home for our individual photography businesses brought us together. After spending 7 months in a shared space we began looking for a space for the two of us with a clear vision of what we needed and wanted. We landed in City Center with our dream space April 2019 but by the next year we had outgrown our home. We have a passion for providing opportunities to our fellow photographers and others in the community and in order to continue we needed more space. We are eager to share our new, larger, improved rental studio aimed to provide a professional space to bring your presentation to a new level. 

Who are We?

Owner of L Workman Photography loves bringing her quirky personality to everything from cake smashes, children, family, business branding/headshots and product photography. However her real passion is for boudoir photography under the Sugar Boudie brand.

Leigh Ann is a Newport News native who has always been driven to capture memories in a way you can keep forever. With a love of film and the darkroom she found her first adult job at Ritz Camera, the perfect place to learn more about equipment and interact with local professionals. 

Now a stay at home mom while running her full time photography business, Leigh Ann enjoys the chance to meet others in the Hampton Roads artist community and beyond.

Meet Leigh Ann

Meet Ladawn

She's been going at this for over 17 years and within those years God has blessed her with an amazing husband that supports her dreams to photograph the world. She also have twin sons and one very loud mouth daughter that pushes her more than anyone! She has a community of support that encourages her with prayers and love.
A resident of Newport News, VA, she is eager and willing to travel to help you capture your special day.
