Here’s to 2018!

Hey everyone! It’s been a loooong time since I’ve posted. Yikes! We had quite a year last year– I know so many people feel the same way but we were honestly excited to say goodbye to 2017. Just seems like last year was a hard year for a lot of people. I was super busy with photography and SO very thankful about that… but on the personal side of our lives we were dealing with one hard thing after another. Sometimes adulting is just HARD isn’t it? We dealt with loss, hard changes in family relationships, house troubles and my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer right when I was gearing up for Fall Mini sessions. It was A LOT. And still is but I’m starting to dig out of the fog and am truly so excited for this new year. A fresh start is always nice. And while all of those things don’t just go away and get better, we learn to work through them and focus on what matters the most. To me, those things are my family, my friends and this business. It fills me with absolute happiness that I get to document these seasons of life for people.

Leslie Walker Photography is coming back!

Last year about this same time I started working on the process of re-branding this business and a new website. It’s been time to move back to Leslie Walker Photography for a while now (no offense to my amazing husband). When we moved here 2.5 years ago we made the decision to take a step back from photographing weddings….Dusty started working full time for an awesome company and I was really feeling to pull to just focus on newborns and families. We’ve really enjoyed this decision. Dusty has enough on his plate and even though he enjoyed shooting with me, he just needs a break on the weekends! And the main desire to step away from weddings came from our 2 boys…once we had them it just didn’t seem to make sense for us to both be gone all weekend shooting weddings. We loved every second of it but our time with our kids is something we’ll never get back.

The re-brand process has been another thorn in my side the past year — we were working with a company on my new site and unfortunately it just didn’t work out. I took a few months off from worrying about it so I could focus on my mom and now I’m gearing up again to get this new website launched. So please stay tuned! I’m so excited about this next step.

In the craziness of the year, I had to put the blog on the back of my to-do list just so I could focus on clients and delivering their beautiful images. With that said– I have SO much to share. I feel like I’ve been holding out on everyone– there are tons of pictures just waiting to be posted!

Atlanta Maternity Photographer | Katherine

There is truly nothing more beautiful than a glowing, pregnant mama to be 🙂 I love getting to capture this time for our clients. I loved being pregnant. Don’t get me wrong– it was HARD but oh so worth it. You may not feel your best and feel like you don’t want your picture taken– but trust me, you’ll want to look back at your pregnancy. And your kids will love to see pictures of you one day when you were pregnant with them!

I loved meeting this sweet couple and getting to document this time for them. How beautiful is Katherine?!

Kerr Family – Expecting twins | Atlanta Newborn Photographer

Oh this sweet, sweet family. 🙂 All the heart eyes. Andrea and I have known each other since way back in the day and it has been so much fun and a true honor to reconnect and capture this amazing time in their lives. I did family pictures in 2015 for their little family of 3 and then they found out they were expecting twins– 2 more sweet baby boys! You know I have a soft spot in my heart for baby boys 🙂 I’m so glad they decided to capture these moments before the twins arrived…when it was just the 3 of them. I just love this session so much.

And seriously…how beautiful is Andrea?!

Hello 2017!

Wow. It’s been a loooong time since we’ve updated this blog. Oops! I guess it’s a good and bad thing– we’ve thankfully been so busy that the blog took a backseat to all the other things that needed to get done around here! We’re hoping we can try to make more time for it this year. 2016 was a BIG year. It was the first year since we started this business that we took on zero weddings. None. It was weird but it felt so good to focus on newborns and families. We met some amazing families last year and got to document some very important moments for them.

There is so much to share so get ready for a slew of posts. So many sweet snuggly newborns and adorable families. Here’s just a taste of what’s to come…

Now booking maternity, newborn and family sessions in the Atlanta area for 2017. Please book newborn sessions while you’re pregnant. Newborn sessions are done in your home within the first 10 days. 

Email us to book: hello@leslieanddusty.com

 

Megan’s Spring Maternity Session

Happy Friday everyone! Whew- we have quite a few sessions we need to blog! 🙂 We’re getting back in the swing of things around here- tons of sessions to edit and blog and our first wedding of the year is this weekend at War Memorial Auditorium. We can’t wait for Julie & Vincent’s big day!

I’m excited to share pictures from my friend Megan’s maternity session we did a couple of months ago. She and David decided not to find out if they were having a boy or girl and they just had a sweet little girl a week ago– welcome baby Sophie! She has a head full of dark hair and is absolutely precious. We did these pictures in March right as the trees were starting to bloom but of course, on the day of our session it was quite windy and cold. Megan was a trooper though. Absolutely love how these turned out…

We put together a gorgeous Session Album with all of Megan & David’s favorite pictures. Can’t wait for it to get here!
