Local photographer Leslie Meyer published in international magazine

Posted

Publishers of the international Teen Years Magazine announced their picks for the fall 2021 edition and Mexico-area photographer Leslie Meyer had two works selected for the editions L-Z.

“I am so excited to have not one, but two of my photographs chosen,” she said. “I was so nervous about it that I didn’t even tell my family I had entered any images!”

Meyer submitted several images for consideration earlier this summer. She received the email early Saturday morning and was able to view a digital copy of the magazine prior to the first printing this month. The letter from the publishers explained that her images were selected from thousands of entries that came from across the world.

Meyer’s youngest daughter, Kat was the subject of the first image, which was taken in front of Coal Street Antiques. The picture was taken last summer.

“I love using Jim’s store as a backdrop,” Meyer said. “It has so much personality and the brick is gorgeous! Plus he always has some type of unique furniture out front that he doesn’t mind if I use.”

The other photograph is of her oldest daughter, Paige, now a senior, sitting on the boat dock at the Teal Lake ramp in Mexico. The picture was taken during Paige’s sophomore year in high school.

“She thought I was crazy when I suggested it, but I loved the way the lines of the dock created their own border around her and really made her stand out from the background,” Meyer explained.

Meyer specializes in senior portraits, but is also known for her family, wedding and wildlife and landscape photography. Her work has earned her a finalist spot in the Missouri Department of Natural Resources contest, a winning entry in the Travel Missouri contest and has been featured in many print and social media campaigns including one that was used in a video by the Miss America Organization.
