Larkin and Grant






Larkin told me a secret…she has had a crush on Grant long before they even started dating. They met through church. I think that this is a great way to start off a relationship. Grant lives in Colorado and has a lot of horses. They were going to bring one for the shoot, but that would have made for a long trip. Their wedding will be at her parents and I am really excited about this. I love intimate weddings. You can also see my newest photography assistant in the pictures. Isn’t she a doll?!

So excited!!!

My new website should be up and running before the beginning of March. I think that you will all enjoy it as most of my clients shining faces will be highlighted on the website. I will also have a testimonials page coming soon. Please submit your testimonials so that they can be featured. The first five people that submit will receive a free 8×12 print. E-mail them to leslieannsimon@yahoo.com. Stay tuned for more fun promotions!

Danielle and Scott






Sunday I photographed one of my former photography students and her husband. Danielle and I met while I was in grad school. I teach a photography class at Tech and she signed up. Now, 2 years later, she asked me to photograph her and her wonderful husband, Scott. It was the first time that I met him and he was so nice. I can tell that he is totally in love with her! He was so loving, I almost forgot that it wasn’t an engagement shoot. I think that it is a rule that you must have above par manners to wear a cowboy hat.

Thank you Dani and Scott for a wonderful morning! Enjoy the photos and let me know what your mom thinks of her birthday present!

Check back soon, I had four shoots on Sunday!

Trefoils, Thinmints and Do Si Do’s, Oh My!






In January I photographed the Cookie Celebration for the Lubbock Girl Scouts. I became ill right after and I forgot to post it on my blog. The girls were so fun and happy and had an innocence to them that I would love to gain back. The most important thing in their lives is selling more cookies! We played games, ate cookies, did the weather with John Robinson, and, when they figured out that I was just there for them, we did a little modeling. Good job girls on all of your hard work and best of luck to you all!

Save my Date!


Thanks to a wonderful amature photographer (my sweet mother!), Nick and I were able to get some pictures by the Christmas tree at Tech where he proposed. We made our save the date card out of one of them. If you haven’t received one, you could possibly be one of the people that I could not find an address for! Please fell free to sign our guest book at http://simonandkitten.weddings.com and learn more about the day. It is so much fun to plan the whole day instead of just the photography. It makes me even more excited about the weddings that I am photographing!
