Leah Welch


Hello! My name is Leah and I am the owner of 99 Perspectives Photography & Design. I am a lighthearted, fun, quirky individual who loves coffee, laughing, singing, sunshine and tan lines. I believe in loving my life every single day…so I put myself in a career that I love, I surround myself with people who make me happy, and I do things that are satisfying every single day. Not only am I a photographer, but I also coach and play volleyball, which has been my biggest passion since I was about 10 years old. However, I think I have found something that superceeds that passion, and that is photography!

Nilla Bean Buttons

Office Manager

Meet Nilla! She’s the one who keeps me on task at the office. She usually lays curled up at my feet and will give me “the eyes” if she doesn’t like the music that I’m playing (or if I’m singing horribly off key), and usually nudges me to let me know that it’s time to take a break and maybe go on a walk or indulge in some frisbee! She greets every client who walks in the door as a long lost best friend and will want as many belly rubs as you are willing to give, and expects a kiss on the top of the head when you leave.

Jody is 19 years old and just graduated STMA High School and will be attending Bethel University. She just celebrated her 1 year anniversary with 99 Perspectives and I am so thrilled to have her be a part of the team! Jody mostly works as an assistant at weddings as her attention to detail and “go-get-em” attitude is paramount! Jody also enjoys playing volleyball (gee, I wonder how I found her!!!), traveling, and water skiing.

Meet Danielle! She lives in Monticello with her family and two of the cutest German Yorkies you’ve ever seen. Danielle has been assisting at 99 Perspectives for almost a year, mainly in the office and on location for children, family, and engagement photo shoots. This may come as a shocker…but I also met Danielle through volleyball… She is also a full time college student and works at Space Aliens in Albertville.

And this is Sam! She’s a junior at Champlin Park High School, who loves working weddings, playing volleyball (go figure!), reading anything she can get her hands on, playing the clarinet, and hanging out with her dog – Duke! Right now Sam is still in high school, but is looking forward to becoming a Youth Minister when she “grows up!”
