I work with brands, creatives, and small business owners to capture authentic, candid, and vibrant imagery. If you are passionately engaged in your purpose, and deeply determined to create a positive, lasting impact on the world, I want to meet you.
I specialize in portraits, branding and lifestyle imagery, as well as wellness retreats and festivals. I’m all about embracing those natural moments but ready to give fun prompts if need be. My style is influenced by a love of natural light and the desire to communicate a story. Rest assured our time together will be easygoing, relaxed and FUN - even if you're one of the many who don't enjoy getting your photo taken. Just show up, and let me take care of the rest. All portrait sessions come with personal pre-session consultation, location scouting, and a shared mood board for photoshoot inspiration.
She has a natural eye for creative direction…
“It was such a pleasure to work with Leslie on a recent lifestyle and portrait photoshoot. She has a natural eye for creative direction and exploring the space and subjects of each shot. Her demeanor made me feel incredibly comfortable during the shoot- her work and style are both intuitive and exploratory, and I felt she encouraged me in the same manner. She was able to balance giving direction and guidance with letting me express myself and do my thing, and the result was a series of gorgeous photos that I felt truly captured who I am (check out my profile picture here!). I would highly recommend working with Leslie and hope to do it again soon!

The whole shoot was so much fun….
“I had the opportunity to do a yoga photo shoot with Leslie. We had never met before and had only exchanged some friendly conversation over social media. When I arrived for the photo shoot Leslie made me feel immediately comfortable and was so easy to talk to! We quickly started sharing some ideas we had for the shoot. I loved that she allowed some of my creative ideas and suggestions into the shoot. The whole shoot was so much fun, I never once felt awkward, and Leslie was so helpful whenever I was unsure of my body positions. When I received the images back I was more than happy with the results! I loved her style, enthusiasm, and passion for photography. I would definitely work with Leslie in the future.”

she always found ways to make me feel comfortable…
“As a photographer myself, it can be hard to put yourself in front of the camera! Fortunately, I found Leslie. When I started shooting with Leslie on a few projects, she always found ways to make me feel comfortable as the subject with her heartfelt, friendly approach. Leslie always brings vibrant energy to set and has loads of great ideas to keep the session moving. Every time I work with Leslie, we walk away with beautiful pictures from the day that reflect me. I look forward to the next time I get to work with Leslie and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a collaborative, supportive photographer!”
