What photos are for.

I am in the middle of editing a milion photos for clients. Is this strong enough to show, I ask myself everytime. Wanting every image to be a good representation of my work.

Is the color good, is it sharp, is it... well my style.

Here is a photo I found on my harddrive...

My Granddad and I in our matching outfits, him in his work outfit, and me well.. I just loved overalls. This was taken about 10 years ago.

He is in the middle of building a home from the ground up. And of course as he always does in photos is looking at everyone else lovingly.

I love this image, I can still feel it, and still stand there... and so glad that this ordinary moment, with poor disposable film was captured.

I don't care about coloring or being washed out, I love it anyways.

Thats what photos are for right....

My granddad went home to be with the Lord back in June, Man I miss him.

Take those images around your own home... no matter what the circumstances, you will love them later!

NO RULES on outfit changes, or poses, or any of the standard photography mumbo jumbo.
Which ultimately leads to totally unique images that are all about you.

No cheesy 07 to sit on.

1-2 hour session
online slideshow of images to share with family & friends
2 of your favorite images web size to use on my space, blogs, desktops, etc.
50 Custom Graduation Announcements.
64 wallets of one image.
And way cooler pictures than your friends.

*This special is good for seniors who book a session in November/December and are graduating Class of 2007.


I have done a couple sessions now at the Happiest Place on Earth.
Perfect for families who just want them being them, and there kids in great moods.

Its fun, we play, we ride the carousel, we go to a tea party (a dizzy one!), we do whatever there family does on there trips to Disney... and ironicaly we call it WORK... hmmm...

Unfortuanetly OC traffic got us there later than what we wanted and we has about 20 minutes of daylight left, so we get creative after that.

I did one with a super awesome family a couple weeks, a family with a HUGE heart, that has an awesome testimony of God's goodness, and beyond that they are a ton of fun, we look forward to hanging out with them at there sessions. I have photographed this mini-man since before Leslie Autumn Photography was even called that, he was 2 weeks old I believe... and still the cutest guy ever.

Linda, Joe, & Luke.. thanks for hanging out...
heres a sneak...

little lady....

This family came down from Las Vegas for our session. I had done photographs of their neice a few months ago and so now it was time for this little lady. She was timid of my little black box at first, but once she warmed up, that smile was shinning.... is she not ridiculously cute? I think so.

just a sneak..............there are so many to edit!
