  • 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.

I think I did it correctly. I am thankful for your beautiful photos of my children and Organic Bloom frames.

Pam Ozimina - November 13, 2011 - 4:36 pm

These frames are the most unique and elegant I have ever seen. They are so beautiful I actually visited my own facebook page for the first time in months so that I could follow all of the steps for the giveaway.

Ali Cheezum - November 12, 2011 - 10:10 pm

I posted about the giveway! I love the green frame! I’ve been dreaming to have the opportunity for you to photograph my daughter!!

annie - November 12, 2011 - 9:54 pm

I liked you, I shared you, now I wanna win you, we are thankful for heather Leigh and her photography!!!!

Ali - November 12, 2011 - 5:39 pm

I posted it on my page! :) A new frame would be nice! I love our blue one! I am thinking maybe a red for our christmas pictures.. or we can always use a pink one! :)

Danielle - November 11, 2011 - 8:08 pm

ok, I’ve never tagged before, I tried and it didn’t really do it. Let me know if I need to redo that. At first glance, I might want the red one. I could use it for my Santa piture each year. But I need a regular size frame, not some crazy 10 by 10. So, I’ll pick 8×10.

Mr. Serious | Northern Virginia Family Photographer

You may recognize this family, I photographed them last fall as well, I ♥ repeat clients not only because it shows that they loved their final product but because I get to see how the children have grown.

This little guy was 6 months old during his last session and for the life of me I could not get a smile out of him, it’s kind of a personal challenge of mine to get a smile out of every child that I photograph. As my parents will tell you I am quite silly most of the time during my sessions they probably think I am nuts but it works:)I was determined to get a smile this time around.  He was still in his reserved serious mood most of the session but I did manage to get a  few smiles (at the expense of tickling his mom-sorry mom!)

lindsay koehler - November 14, 2011 - 2:35 pm

Love the colors and the family is so sweet! Great shots!

Jenn - November 10, 2011 - 12:03 pm

Such a beautiful family and the little boy is adorable! Beautiful work!

Ellie - November 10, 2011 - 2:17 am

So handsome and good job on getting the smiles :-). Although I think his serious face is cute too.

The ‘S’ Family | Northern Virginia Family Photographer

These kiddos gave me a workout, but it was worth it. They were fun. Once I showed the little one the hat he did not want to take it off, it was pretty funny. I was so excited when the mom ordered the family one of them with the little guy tipping the hat as a 16×20 canvas, it’s going to be amazing-I can’t wait for it to come in.

Thanks again ‘S’ family it was wonderful to meet you.

Jenn - November 10, 2011 - 12:06 pm

These are gorgeous! Love the conversions of the kids!

Ellie - November 10, 2011 - 2:18 am

That little guys is so cute, I am not surprised mom chose that one, I know I would too.

Laura - November 9, 2011 - 11:14 pm

tamsen - November 9, 2011 - 8:22 pm
