Founder, Photographer, & Co-Owner of Shoppe Smitten

Leslie is fueled by her faith, family, and opportunities. She lives with a determination to create and positively influence, and as a result, has built two businesses, both of which add value to others and are award-winning.  In her Senior photography work, her goal is to capture personalities in bright, stunning, well-styled portraiture. In her boutique, she continues to help women feel confident, and sells thoughtfully handpicked items that she personally loves and believes in. Leslie is above all else a mother, wife, and opportunity seeker. She spent her twenties traveling the globe, leading teams of students on life-defining trips, and making her reality one of great adventure and purpose. Now into her thirties she’s married to her musician/designer/carpenter husband, a proud mother to their two boys and two pups. You could call her a passionate dreamer, motivated doer, yet a relaxed artist. When not with her family or building her businesses, you can find her amongst a community of friends or serving at her church, driving her Jeep with the top off, and probably drinking coffee.
