father-daughter turned business partners
Hi, Welcome to our website! We’re happy you clicked in to find out a little bit about Leigh Thomas Photography. So, let’s start with our firm’s name to get that out of the way first-She is Kimberleigh Miller. He is John Thomas Sobeski. We liked it better than Mill-Ski Photography! We’ll get to know you, so it’s fair that you get to know us first. We are a dad-daughter team who have had a passion for the art of photography for decades. Learning and gaining experience as a hobby, whenever we had time. Shooting weddings, friends’ events, landscapes, whatever we could fit in when life allowed, to continue to get better. Over the years, we began to realize how happy our friends/clients were with our photos. We started to rethink the 9-5 life, and took the leap into the 24-7 world of pro photography—and we couldn’t be happier! We both come from service focused careers. Kim has had various roles in the healthcare field and worked with a large independent Marketing firm in Chicago. She is a graduate of Bradley University in Peoria Illinois, is a wife and a mom to two dynamic, beautiful little girls!
John worked in the commercial Aviation Services industry for over 30 years as a global Sales/Marketing Executive and before that, served in the U.S. Marine Corps. Which is why his seven grandchildren lovingly call him Sarge. We are both Chicago born and bred, and love our Cubs! (Waaay before they won the World Series!) We know each other’s strengths and leverage them to deliver our clients the highest level products and service possible. We take pride in the work we do, respecting the trust of those who allow us into their lives, and to honor our family’s culture to do the right thing, work hard, play hard and HAVE FUN! You’ll see in our Portfolio, we have a journalistic candid style and also love adding flair to posed portraits. But in the end, every wedding, family, or engagement session, there’s a story to tell…our mission is to capture yours because ‘A Story Isn’t a Story Until It’s Shared.’ We make that happen! So, now that we’re friends, you can just call us LTP.
