Sarah Krieg

Jackie Haxthausen is the owner and photographer behind LeeKay Photography. This episode we discuss how she listened to her heart and made the leap from Pediatric cardiology doing heart ultrasounds, to capturing people's heart through her photography. We also discuss how she manages to get such beautiful light, creative composites and we even discuss how her business is named for her two girls, Liora Elizabeth and Emmeline Kay. LEEKay. Sorry for the spoiler there. But you must follow Jackie on Instagram for incredible use of light, color and a little bit of pure magic!


We asked Jackie for her top 5 cinematic influences, and being the over achiever she is, she gave us SIX.

1. Wes Anderson The Royal Tennanbaums and Grand Budapest Hotel
2. The Sound of Music, for so many reasons, the era, the set and location, the music and the gorgeous colors all shot on film
3. All Disney animated musicals. Just can’t narrow that down. But maybe Sleeping Beauty is one of the most impressive to me when I see all those hand painted scenes
4. Pride and Predjuce 2005 - the use of light, the soundtrack, and it’s just one of the best stories ever. Name another sunrise scene that’s better, can’t. And I love all things Victorian
5. Moulin Rouge colors, music, sets all of it. Saw it 5 times in the theater
6. Little Women 1994 and the 2019. I thought the brilliant use of color grading in the new one  to show a flashback was so impactful to tell the story in a new way. And those costumes.


Here is a trailer for one of Dan's favorite film's Tree of Life by one of his favorite directors Terrence Malick.
