Leyah Jensen studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, but her journey in photography began much earlier. As a toddler of a professional photographer, she was often staged in tutus or with a finger in the nose. Growing older, she helped lug equipment to places like Tijuana, where her father was basing a children's book. Then in her teens she completed several photojournalism assignments abroad of her own, through children's organizations such as Compassion and other orphan relief agencies. Her own experiences as a child model have taught her that you can't capture the magic of childhood unless the subjects are free to truly be themselves.
