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.

Sweet little ‘A’ | Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer

This little 3 week old girl is so sweet & did such an amazing job. She is one of my baby planners so keep your eyes out in about 2 months for her 4 month old pics…

I Heart Faces “Yellow” | Northern Virginia Children’s Photographer

This week’s theme over at I Heart Faces is “Yellow”. At first I was just going to post a picture from this session I did last year with my daughter. Then I remembered I framed this photo in a yellow frame, even better, I was going to take a photo of the framed photo. THEN I was able to bribe my daughter into putting the outfit back on (wasn’t hard as it’s one of her favorite) and voila!

Macro Monday “Lizards” | Northern Virginia Photographer

I know, I know it’s been awhile. Still enjoying my macro lens, but been so busy with clients lately haven’t been using it as often. Though next week I’ll feature some cute baby bits…

These two little guys were inside my mom’s screened in pool in FL. I was surprised how close they let me get. I used to pick them up and take them outside, but one day one bit me and wouldn’t let go. Sure they have no teeth but it was still uncomfortable…
