  • 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.

Twice the Sweetness| Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer

No, you are not seeing double. How adorable are these two? Really hard not to want more children after photographing them. Not only are they adorable they were so good to me, slept almost the entire time and no ‘accidents’. You may recognize mom and dad and now big brother ‘B’ from their maternity session, congratulations on your new arrivals….

“Beach Fun” I Heart Faces Photo Challenge {Heather Leigh Photography}

This week’s theme over at I Heart Faces (check out their site by clicking on the link below) is “Beach Fun” Usually I know right away which picture I am going to enter for these challenges; however, we just got back from an awesome family vacation in the Outer Banks. I narrowed it down to about 5. I have some really awesome silhouettes, but one of the criteria is that a face is visible.

Here was the tough choice….

P.S. (I’ll post all my beach pics in a separate post if you want to check them out :))
