...now it's your turn to be in the moment.

You’ve found the kind of love they’re always singing about (and I’m always singing along about!) in Disney movies. Now, it’s time to capture all the love, laughter and personlities, and for once be captured as a whole instead of getting those behind the scene moments. Yes.. I'm talking to you mama.. now it's your turn to shine as well.

Maybe you want to take these special moments with your family at the beach and frame them still! Or you want to start by grabbing some shaved ice, and acai bowls before hitting the beach. Whatever your vision, I can’t wait to help you bring it to life while capturing every unrepeatable, emotional moment from behind my camera.

North Shore Family Photographer and Maternity Photographer

Happily serving oahu, hawaii and beyond!


Hey, you badass motha or motha to be (this also included fur moms duh!)! I’m Leslie, an Oahu family and couples photographer. I’m Colombian-born and New York-raised with a heart for the Hawaiian Islands. I’ve called so many wildly different places home, so is it really all that surprising I now call “the whole freaking world” my service area?

With my Louis Vuitton bags full of thrift-store finds and my trusty Doc Martens, Dunks and Vans, I travel the world telling love stories in my signature vibrant, immersive style. Inspired by the bold colors of my current Hawaiian home and the energy of my New-York-by-way-of-Colombia upbringing, I create galleries that feel authentic-yet-inspirational. Bright-yet-emotional. Basically, it’s the best of both worlds! You get to be all-natural and free while I turn your connection into works of art!

Speaking of love stories, how long do you think my husband and I have known each other?

"Leslie is basically a magical fairy photographer who makes your wishes come true! From the very beginning in the planning stages to the day of the shoot, she did not skip a beat!! She was very in tune to what we wanted and was very empathetic to how much the breastfeeding shots meant to me and my insecurities with my post baby body. She made my family and I feel super comfortable and all we had to do was be ourselves, and she took care of the rest! She led with expert direction, yet we had so much fun at the same time. I could not recommend Leslie enough!! She truly captures magic, and you will be treasuring these photos for a lifetime ❤️"
