Northern Virginia Children's Photographer | Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer | Heather Leigh Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to my blogsite!

    A website and blog all in one, making it easier for you, as a client, to see everything in one place.

    I am a wife to a wonderful husband & mom to two incredible children-Leah & Jake. As you will see my style is all about capturing the real child with natural smiles. I focus on showcasing their true personality & expressions, not having a child sit still and say 'cheese'. I will laugh and play games with your child while striving to have our sessions stress free and fun for all.

    I've been in business for over 6 years.

    Sessions are on location or at your home using the available natural light. I am located in Northern Virginia & book sessions for the entire DC metro area.

Miss Serious 8 month old ‘C’ | Northern Virginia Baby Photographer

This is little cutie ‘C’- AKA little Miss serious. This is her 8 month old session & I’m fortunate that she is one of my baby planners so I get to see her and her parents every 4 months. She makes me work hard for smiles and is not too sure about the camera yet, but her serious face is just ooh so cute. I can’t wait for her cake smash session and 1 year portraits…

She is a doll! I love the shot of her in the rocking chair!

Fine Art Friday | Virginia Nature Photographer

Summer is over and soon I will be photographing the beautiful fall colors and my new favorite obsession snowflakes, if we get any good snow this year?

For now I enjoyed some last minute summer flowers at the local gardens…

Fine Art Friday | DC Fine Art Photographer

It’s the end of the month again…time for a another Fine Art Friday post.

I went to the Baltimore Aquarium recently and they happened to have their Jellyfish exhibit (The last time I was there about 10 years ago they did too and I love Jellyfish-when I am NOT in the water with them) So thought this was kinda fun and different….

Ooooh, that is really cool!! And yeah, I’d prefer to view from outside the ocean too. LOL
