At the end of last year, my shooting schedule was filled to the brim with family sessions! Every year, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible families who ask me to be thier photographer. Meeting new people and serving families through photography is one of my favorite things about this work. It keeps me so fulfilled year after year!
This December, I’ve had the joy of photographing families in their homes as they partake in their favorite holiday traditions! For the Thaxton family, one of their favorite traditions is baking cookies from a family recipe. It’s something they do every year, and this year, the I got to photograph their morning of baking!
This past spring, I spent a few days in New Orleans with one of my go-to travel friends. It is truly unlike any other city I’ve visited! The colors, the music, the food, the “Louisiana French” pronunciations of street names. After experiencing the city’s unique culture, I understand why so many are prone to make New Orleans a constant in their travel rotation.
This past December, my family took a trip to “The Big Island” of Hawaii. In 2016, we saw a lot of exciting milestones, (two graduations, an engagement, new jobs…) so we thought it was fitting to celebrate by crossing the Pacific and closing out the year on a tropical island.
I recently spent a long weekend visiting New York for the first time. The city has been on my travel list for a very long time, and it was just as magical as I had hoped it would be! Sometimes, I can have such high expectations for how a trip or an experience will go, then it’s nothing like I hoped. I was terrified that would be the case with this weekend, but I was so wrong!
Lesley grew up in Colorado, and has a deep love for mountains. While the foothills of the Appalachians are slightly different from The Rockies, they have a beauty and majesty of their own, and they provided the rocky landscapes and sweeping views she craved for her bridal portraits.
