The opening chapter of your child’s story… 

You won’t be pregnant forever, and sweet newborn babies don’t keep, even though we’d like them to.

These joyous, fleeting seasons of life are so tender—but they’re gone so soon. Honor some of the fullest weeks, months, and seconds of your family’s life by decorating your home in heirloom-quality art and binding your memories into the pages of an album.

From a tailored experience that encourages your heart as a mother to crafting quality, well-sourced artwork that hangs on the wall of your home. As a mother, we know you’ve got a lot on your plate, so let us handle all the details.


we’ve anticipated every part of the process

about the experience

Founded by Leigh Ripps in 2011, Fresh Light Photography began as one mother’s intent to document her own baby’s milestones. That baby is now six and Fresh Light has grown, too. Now Leigh and her team work out of a beautiful studio, craft heirloom art pieces, and love on the dearest mamas, families, children and babies in the Houston area each year.

about fresh light

We are a Houston portrait studio dedicated to telling your family's story through maternity, newborn, and baby photography.

Leigh's photography skills are an art that cannot be matched. Her style is timeless and gorgeous, and her shots are always perfectly organic. I am usually so uncomfortable in front of a camera, but Leigh made me feel so relaxed and at ease. The photos that she produced for me will be treasured forever.

We had such a great experience with Leigh. The quality of pictures is amazing and Leigh captured so many intricate details of our little one that are so easy to forget.

I am so happy we chose Leigh for our newborn pictures!! She was so patient with our baby and the pictures she got are just beautiful. The pictures she takes are truly artwork and I am so glad we have them for our baby.
