Leslie Walker Photography is back!

Hey friends! I am SO very excited to finally share my new website with everyone! I’ve been working on this behind the scenes for a year now and am so happy with the finished product. Thank you so much to our good friend Joey for making this space feel like the perfect representation of me and my love for this incredible job.

Atlanta Maternity, Newborn and Family Photographer

A little back story on why I’ve decided to go back to Leslie Walker Photography…

I am sorry to say that Dusty has gotten the boot 😉 If you’ve been following for a few years, you know that I started this business back in 2008 when we were living in Charleston. Then we moved to Nashville and when weddings started to ramp up, Dusty began shooting with me. We decided to change to Leslie & Dusty Photography and we spent a few years photographing beautiful weddings. We had the best time. We met so many amazing couples, made sure their memories were documented beautifully, danced during their receptions and tasted all the best wedding cakes. It was a very fun time for us! And then we started to grow our family and when Charlie was born life was just a little more complicated. It started to feel like our weekends weren’t ours anymore and we wanted to make sure we spent as much time with our kids as possible. Especially in these early years. So when we moved to Atlanta we decided to take a break from weddings and let me focus on newborns and families. Before we moved I said to Dusty ‘I think I want to focus more on babies and families’ And sometimes all it takes is speaking something outloud to get the ball rolling.

I have been so amazed at how quickly this business has grown since we moved to Atlanta. I’m right where I’m supposed to be and it’s an incredible feeling. Motherhood changed me in so many ways. And I’m so thankful because it also sparked a passion in me to capture beautiful pictures for other families. I get it now…I’m a busy mom of two wild little boys and these days are long. I’m making lunches, cleaning crayon off the walls and running a business. It’s a crazy life but I am so incredibly happy. I remember those first days of bringing home a newborn. Those days are hard but truly some of my best memories. And I understand the desire to have beautiful pictures to document this time in your lives. Even the messy, tantrum filled moments. I’m told all the time that I have incredible patience with babies and children. At least with other people’s kids I do 😉 And this job definitely requires patience and the ability to sing and dance like a fool in order to get little people to smile. I love this job and I am so honored that people allow me into their lives in this way.

This is going to be a fun adventure! Bring me all your babies 🙂 Thanks for allowing me to do what I love!

I am now booking into the summer for Newborns, Babies and Families. Make sure you follow me on Facebook and Instagram for more updates! And you might want to check my instagram a little later today for a really exciting giveaway! 😉

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!

This family- oh my goodness…SO precious. Erin & Taylor– you guys make beautiful children 🙂 We really lucked out on this day and had some beautiful weather in November. Erin really wanted some outdoor newborn pictures so it worked out perfectly! Her sweet little guy was nice and cozy during our outdoor pictures. I just love this session so much. Thank you guys for allowing me to document this exciting time for you!

Happy Monday everyone! How about we take a break from politics to focus on some sweet twin baby boys? 😉 I had the honor of documenting these adorable newborn twins a few months ago. I was so excited to meet little Elliot & Gavin for their newborn session. They were absolutely precious and slept pretty much the entire time. They were a dream to photograph. Thank you Andrea &  Patrick for allowing me to capture this time for you guys.

 

It was such a sweet moment to watch these parents hold their sweet babies in these master bedroom pictures– they kept talking about how they really hadn’t had a chance to hold them side by side like that and just stare at them. Such a moment that every parent knows is one you never want to forget. And those sweet, quiet moments are even more rare when you have an older child as well. It was so heart warming to just sit back and let them soak in those babies.

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…

Atlanta Newborn Photographer | Miss Tilden

It’s so much fun for me to meet new families during their first few days at home with a new baby. This family was adorable and just truly perfect clients for us. They made me feel so welcome in their home which really does make the session experience even better 😉 We had a great time taking pictures all around their beautiful home. And Zach even hung wallpaper in Tilden’s room the night before! Now that’s a sweet daddy 😉 Their son Carter was absolutely hilarious (his curls. Omgosh!) and a very sweet big brother to little Miss Tilden. Thank you guys so much for allowing me to document this exciting time in your lives!

Alpharetta Newborn Photographer | Little Miss Lottie

Hi friends! We have a ton to share on the blog! We’ve had a baby boom around here– and I’m loving getting my newborn baby fix 😉 This sweet little girl is going to be well protected with by her adorable big brothers. I just love funny little boys. These two were so cute and laughed so hard when Lottie began sucking on big brother’s finger. They were full of gigles and so sweet with their little sister. I love getting to document these first few days for families. Thank you so much Allison & Ramsey for allowing me into your beautiful home. I hope you enjoy these pictures for many years!

Atlanta Newborn Photographer | Miss Georgia Rose

Hi friends! We’ve had quite a baby boom around here and I am LOVING it! 🙂 And most of these sweet babies decided to make an early entrance. It’s been so much fun being a part of this exciting time for all these families and we can’t wait to share some of our favorites.

I did big sister, Charlotte’s newborn pictures 3 years ago when we lived in Nashville and then shortly after that Courtney & George moved back to Atlanta. It’s been fun to reconnect with them and be a part of this time in their lives as they just welcomed baby girl #3! They have 3 beautiful girls under the age of 3 and you guys… they are the sweetest. Courtney & George are such amazing parents– it can’t be easy having 3 kids that young but they are just so thankful and it shows.

Thank you to Courtney & George for allowing me into your gorgeous home to document this time!

Introducing Charlie Morgan Walker!

Happy Friday friends! We have been very busy around here 🙂

Introducing…our new addition Mr. Charlie Morgan Walker:

Newborn photographers nashville

Our sweet baby boy arrived on April 2nd at 12:26pm weighing a healthy 8lbs 10oz and 20in long. He is named after two very special men who have left us but would both be so proud to know his name. Charlie was my grandfather who passed away in November and Morgan was my dad’s middle name (and is also mine). We are so in love with this little guy- and still in shock he is a boy! We didn’t find out the gender with both of our boys and it has been so much fun. We all pretty much thought this one was going to be a girl though. Little Charlie is doing great and adjusting well to our loud house with a 3 year old and barking miniature dachshund. 😉 Big Brother Davis is doing fantastic. He mostly ignores Charlie and lives in his own little world full of trains, snacks and playing outside…but when he does pay attention to Charlie is very sweet. He says ‘It’s ok Chaawie’ very sweetly when he cries and loves to tell me to change Charlie’s diaper so he’ll stop crying.

We are just loving this season in our lives- as crazy as it is. This mama is going to need many girls nights with all these boys around 😉

My mom came in town about a week before Charlie was born and we spent the time cleaning, getting the house ready and doing a lot of waiting….and more waiting for his arrival. And when the day came he was here SO quick. It was such a special day with all of our friends and family celebrating. And they were literally celebrating– the weather turned out nice enough that our family and friends set up a tailgate outside the hospital. Haha. 🙂

We’ve spent the past 2 weeks getting settled as a family of 4 and taking many many pictures…as I’m sure you can imagine. We already have so many pictures we need to go through. Here are some of our favorites:

Emery’s Newborn Session | Newborn Photographer Nashville

Hey everyone! Today I’m so excited to share some of our favorite pictures from sweet Miss Emery’s newborn session.

We were pregnant together with our boys and some of this pregnancy too– little Miss Emery joined their family at the end of October and she is a precious girly bundle 🙂

Get ready to see more newborns around here- we’re planning to take on more family and newborn work this year and are so excited! Introducing Miss Emery….
