I met Lesley about three years ago, and we sparked a friendship and have shot together a few times. A few weeks ago, on a Monday night, she sent me a text and asked if I was available for a photoshoot that week. It was a FULL week and I let her know, the only day I could shoot would be the very next day.
Having just announced they were pregnant, she and her fiancé Alex wanted a session on the beach that was an engagement/maternity combo, and unbeknownst to me, they would be picking up their lives and moving cross county 48hours later.
This was a full circle moment for me, as I reminded Lesley that she met Alex the day we were driving out to the desert for a shoot together with BMW. SO CRAZY!! Thanks for letting her borrow the drone @drone.pilot 🙌🏼 Read their story here!
These two are magic, and I’m so glad we got to shoot such a very special session during their last days in CA. Below, I’ll share their engagement photos, and I’ll share their maternity portion closer to her due date!! @lesleyannemurphy , you’re going to be the best mom! Can’t wait to follow along on all the adventures you take as a family!
