Hey y'all! I'm Leslie! A southern girl at heart who loves to travel!  I am a mom to two teen boys and my seniors girl clients are my chance to get some girl time in!  I love taking photos and documenting my clients' stories!  Check out this blog for fun info, sessions and so much more!

11406370_10153429311678552_541783007683256635_o   11270586_10153428571953552_3882143241781205290_o Most of you are getting those last visits in with friends and family, packing up all your new dorm decor and all the clothes, and getting ready to head out on your new adventure….college!!! I can’t believe the time is here! Although I am sad to see you go, I know you have amazing things ahead of you!! College was one of the best times of my life and I know it will be for you too!! As you take off on this big adventure here are a few words of wisdom: 1. Don’t forget to have fun!! College can be stressful with all the classes, pressure to make good grades, etc but having fun is also important! This is the only time in your life where you can truly be you, take risks and have fun! Meet new people and open your minds to new possibilities of having fun. 2. To Rush or Not to Rush, that is the question! So most of you know my story in rushing…I listened to a boy who told me I was not cool if I didn’t get into one of two sororities. I didn’t so I dropped out of rush completely and that cost me the possibility of getting into many of the other cool, even if he didn’t think so, sororities! Lesson learned…DO NOT LISTEN TO A BOY! If you decide to rush, go into it with an open mind. Don’t listen to the stereotypes of which ones are good or not good. Just listen to YOU and which sorority made you feel at home! As it turns out the two sororities that the boy told me were the only ones to be in were not ones I would have ever fit in at all. So I should have trusted my gut and went with the ones I loved and not the so called cool ones. Again, just have fun with it, see if it is for you and go with your own instinct as to which one fits you best!! 3. Pick a Major that you LOVE! or as in my case, one that doesn’t require a lot of math! Ha! So I lucked into my major after deciding on business and then learning how much math that required. So I searched for a major that

did not require math and found Journalism. Turns out it was the right major for me and I loved it. Loving what you do is so important because you will be doing it for most of your life. So pick something you are passionate about, something that makes you happy and something you can truly see yourself doing for a long time. A job that doesn’t sound like work is the perfect job so discover what makes you excited to go to class and learn! 4. Take a Risk! This is the first time you are on your own so that in and of itself may feel like a huge risk and it is!! But I mean doing something different because you can, not something dangerous but just something that opens your mind to new things. Try new things, ask questions, meet new people…all of these things can be taking a risk and can provide you with an awesome life changing experience that will make you and even more awesome person. I was a little closed off when I first went to college. I was in the cool crowd in high school, everyone new me, I was a cheerleader and it was all very easy. Then I went to college, didn’t get into the “cool” sorority, didn’t make the cheerleading squad and didn’t really know how to study as I never did in high school. I kind of got a little depressed at first. Then I realized that I needed to take a risk, put myself out there and really make a great experience out of college. I vowed to get to know everyone, sorority or no sorority, and I had a blast. By putting myself out there and taking a risk to meet all new people, I ended up having a great college experience!! 5. Don’t forget your home! With all this new adventure and good times, remember where you came from! Your family and friends back home are a big part of your life and what have made you what you are today. So go, have a great time, but remember to keep in touch with those special people in different places so you always have those relationships that have meant so much to you! Good Luck to all my seniors!!! I can’t wait to follow along on your new adventures through social media and hopefully a few texts along the way!! 🙂 xoxo, Leslie
