Hi, I'm LESLIE!
I am a lifestyle and family photographer (with a side of wedding photography) based out of Santa Cruz County, California. I received my Bachelor's of Fine Art in Graphic Design from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) but ironically, I rarely do graphic design work any more. My undergraduate degree did, however, give me an opportunity to dabble in all forms of the arts...including photography, which I fell in love with in a dark room. I only shoot digital now, but love a little film grain in my photographs.
My photography style isn't for everyone...I don't always follow traditional photography rules. I crop weird and I don't always "fill the frame" as I was once taught to. So if you're into breaking rules (photo rules, that is) then I might be for you.
I was born and raised in FL, but am now living in California with my husband, our baby girl, Layla, and our dog, Ginger. Together, we enjoy traveling, hiking, beach trips and eating desserts.
FOUR facts about me:
• I've lived in 8 different cities throughout Florida, South Carolina and California.
• I cry during almost every wedding I shoot.
• Being a mom is pretty much the bees knees.
• I also have a digital + social media consulting business.
