About Leslie

A very wise and talented photographer once asked a group of us “What is your Why?” Why do I photograph couples, teens, babies and the whole families of all shapes and sizes? It’s as simple as this: life is beautiful, life is emotional, life is infinite in its individuality. And most notably, life is fleeting. It goes so fast. I can't freeze my kids at 15 and 12, but I can create stunning images at every age and chapter of life that will bring us back whenever I start feeling nostalgic.

I can do the same for you.

Three Words: A while back I did a little experiment. I asked friends and family to describe me in a couple words. Overwhelmingly, these three notions prevailed: Free Spirited, Warm, & Genuine. What I realized is that not only does this describe my personality, but these qualities are clearly reflected in my work. This is what I offer to you: natural, breezy, heartfelt images that will mean the world to you.

Leslie has been photographing our family for the last four years. She is an amazing photographer with a talented eye, beautiful heart and patient soul. Seeing our family grow through the years through Leslie's eyes is truly something special.
