Sarah Ann White

photographer & web designer

Hey guys! I’m Sarah Ann White, creator & founder of Lele & Beane. I'm a Tennessee girl, puppy mom & coffee snob. I'm daughter to Lele & Beane, aka my beautiful & loving parents who will one day take those names when they become grandparents. Cute right?!

Most days you'll find me working in my grandpa's old PJ's, drinking pour-over coffee with my latest Spotify playlist humming in the background. There's normally 10 new ideas of things I want to do everyday. I'm an artist of all sorts & never want to stop learning OR traveling - I always have my bags packed for my next adventure!

I've taken photos since grade school, then moved forward with a bachelor's degree at Union University in Fine Arts & minor in Photography. It's now matured in a way that I never imagined & I'm so blessed to call it a full-time career. I love the many places it's taken me & the life long friendships it has created.

My goal is to foster an environment for my clients that creates comfort & evokes emotion. I’m a lover of candid moments & desire to capture the raw, the messy, the genuine, lots of giggles, and everything in between.

I believe that every scar, freckle, stretch mark, & belly roll made you who you are today. Every last inch of you is so stinkin' beautiful! My dream clients prefer emotion over technically correct & are ready to jump off the beaten path for a killer shot. I've traveled to over 25+ countries and will hop on a plane in a heartbeat to come photograph you.

If you connect with that, I'd love to hear from you!

Morgan Carkuff

wardrobe stylist

Hello there! Morgan here. I’m your very own personal Wardrobe Stylist & I’m so excited to pamper you for your next photo session! Need help choosing outfits for yourself, your family, or even wedding party? I’m your girl!

I was raised by two professional antiquers in an environment that constantly inspired me with lines, textures, palettes, & all things vintage. That passion grew drastically as I created my personal clothing company, Sonder Finery Co. where I am blessed to give away my expertise in style, love of detail, & community by selling capsule wardrobe items & vintage pieces.

"Clothes aren't going to change the world, the women who wear them will" -Anne Klein

My new venture, Eclectic Mo’s, is a one stop shop where you can be styled for your photo session! I’m all about connecting with who you are, your style preferences, budget, & expectations where we can work together finding you the perfect outfit(s) in your own closet, or I’ll be your personal shopper as we curate new items for your wardrobe! My goal is for you to feel comfortable, powerful, & flawless for the camera. Let’s get this party started!

Ellie White

member care director

Woof woof! I’m Ellie, the director of member care. I’m a labradoodle from Kentucky & I’m so unique because my mom is a black lab & my dad is a marble poodle! I’m like the baby of pees & carrots (even though those don’t taste very good).

I’m in charge of providing all the kisses & snuggles that the L&B team needs everyday, while also leaving traces of my love all over their floors for good measure =).

If you ever need any licks or would love to smell my puppy breathe, please call my mom so we can set up a play date! I cannot wait to meet you all!
