Hi there! Welcome to the journal, a place to showcase our favorite sessions and offer inspiration for your portraits.

Hi, I'm Leigh


5 baby items worth the splurge

Want our list of the baby items worth the extra money?



I meet a lot of to-be mothers who don’t feel like maternity photography is something that will be valuable to them, but I am here to tell you…

The journey matters.

And it will matter even more once its over.

And even if you think it won’t matter to you, this isn’t just your story anymore. You have been charged with the responsibility of documenting the story of your baby, and that baby’s story begins here, still safely tucked in a belly.

So whether you feel like the maternal goddess you are, or you are feeling a little less than confident in your skin, I’ve got this. I work with Houston mothers of a shape, sizes, and confidence levels to create maternity portraits that perfectly encapsulate the feelings and joy that a new baby brings.

Here is what Christina had to say about her experience:

“They are everything I had imagined and more! I’m so in love with them and I am seriously the pickiest person and very hard on myself but I seriously think these are some of the prettiest pictures you have taken!! I feel conceited saying that but you did some great work!!!”

Commissioned Artwork from this Houston Maternity Session

Christina choose a few of her favorite portraits to have printed and matted that can be displayed in her home as a reminder of when her babies were still inside. We also began her twins’ first year album that will feature images from this maternity session, as well as newborn, 6 months, and 1 year portraits as they are born and grow and will be a treasured family heirloom for generations.

If you are expecting a new baby in the Houston area, we would love to talk to you about creating a collection of natural and organic maternity and newborn portraits. The perfect way to document your child from maternity through their entire first year is through the Collective Membership. We would love to talk with you more to give you all the details. Please contact us to begin planning your session.

We are currently booking sessions for 2018 and it would be our joy to work alongside you as you welcome your new baby. All maternity and newborn sessions include the use of our extensive wardrobe for moms and babies at my studio, a styling consultation to discuss the look and feel you desire for your session, as well as our exclusive new client welcome gift and planning guide. On site hair and make-up services are also available with our stylist so that you feel confident and beautiful at your session. We make the process of preparing for you session simple and seamless, so that you can focus on your first priority, your baby, and we can take care of all the rest. After your session, we work hand in hand with you to find beautiful and timeless ways to print and display your new portraits, using only the highest quality archival methods so that your artwork can be cherished for years to come.
