I am a professional photographer with an uncanny knack for organization. I know how important photographs are but I also know how hard it is to keep them sorted and backed up. I can help you manage your existing photos and come up with systems to manage the photos you take in the future. And if there is a space in your house or office that needs some TLC, I can help you sort, purge and rediscover it’s potential.

It might seem strange to be both a photographer and an organizer and yet it is perfectly normal to me. Photography is my creative passion. I can’t leave my house without a camera or two. My eyes are constantly seeking the next shot. I am fascinated by the power of light, how it can change the mood of a place or object depending on its strength or colour.
How and where we live also fascinates me. What we choose to keep around us, what our spaces look like, all of these things show us who we are and what is important to us. I think this is why I am drawn to interiors, still life and ultimately architecture photography. Spaces are mirrors into our souls.
But while my eye seeks out beautiful scenes, my brain wants to solve the problem at hand. When I see something that is not working I instinctively want to fix it. Often I have found, problems can be traced back to how we chose to live and work. What systems we use or don’t use. I have been organizing things and developing systems since I was a child. I started by sorting the clothes in my closet by outfit at the age of 10 so that choosing what to wear in the morning would be a simple process. Throughout my career, I continued to organize objects and information in order to make my work environments run smoothly.
Everybody lives and works differently. One way is not better than another. But sometimes, life gets ahead of our best laid plans and we need a little help to get back on track.
I look forward to using my work and life experiences to help you develop new ways to manage your life, or photograph your latest project.

“Leni’s skill and talent were an incredible contribution at a time when our home was in disarray as we attempted to make a transition in the way we used the space in our basement. Her incredible ingenuity and creative solutions allowed us to make the smallest spaces incredibly well organized when we had to accommodate the needs of both my growing family, my in home business and a great deal of stuff that needed to be stored but also accessible. Leni’s intuitive approach made me feel understood and she really excelled at creating solutions that were a good fit for my family and my budget. She is efficient and fast, but also compassionate and sensitive to the challenges her clients are dealing with.”

“I love Leni’s pragmatic, yet, compassionate, approach to helping me de-clutter my home. I am a very organized person, but she helps me to minimize what I do and do not need to maintain. I also appreciate her help in actually physically removing from my space the things I have chosen to part with. I can’t even remember what was here! Her patience in allowing me to purge in phases takes some of the pressure off, and I don’t feel so scared to let go of things, because I have time to really think about what matters to me. Lastly, her expertise in interior design and decor will help me make my home more comfortable, and she is helping me have the courage to learn to do some repairs on my own, which is what I have been wanting to do for so long. Thanks, Leni! You have an amazing skill set which I envy!”
