Mindy Leigh Photography – Grand Rapids & Holland Wedding & Portrait Photographer bio picture
  • Hello, my name is Mindy, and thank you so much for visiting MindyLeigh.com! Right now I am unable to accommodate new clients, as I have dialed back my workload for personal reasons. However, I am maintaining this blog to show the work I do, as well as to have a place to share personal photos and thoughts.

    My focus is on lifestyle photography, mainly of babies, children, families, and maternity, and in all my work I strive to capture real moments and genuine emotions, with a style that is creative yet timeless. While I have photographed numerous engagements and weddings, please note that I have stepped away from this area of photography. I understand this is disappointing, as I continue to receive emails for engagement and wedding photography. I really wish I could say yes to everyone, but right now I need to say "yes" to my own family! Thank you for understanding!

Sarah Elizabeth | newborn

Laura and Justin contacted me last fall about taking their maternity and newborn photos, and I was excited to say yes to another one of these types of portrait sessions! I have really come to love photographing these little ones so much! Justin and Laura have been absolutely wonderful to work with, and I have truly enjoyed spending time together talking and taking photos (even when we nearly froze during their maternity session!). I saw the news of Sarah’s birth on Facebook, and soon after, we set up her newborn session. So, I had the awesome privilege of taking her photos at just six days old! She is a beauty, and I loved photographing this lovely little family of three! They let me hold her for a little while, trying to sway her to sleep… but she stayed wide awake! Mom and Dad have the magic touch already, and Sarah finally dozed off so I could capture her peaceful, angelic face. Laura and Justin, thank you so much for hiring me for these special photos, I hope you love this preview!



Jude Jacob | newborn

I am so excited to share these images on my blog today. Jude was about 2 weeks old when we took these photos at Mandy and Jake’s home. Back in November, when I took their maternity photos in Rockford, they did not know the baby’s gender. I was very much looking forward to hearing the news, and after a couple months, I got the message from Mandy! It’s a boy! Jude was born on January 26, early in the morning. When I arrived at their house last weekend, she was holding him, and the first thing I thought was how much he looked like his big sister Hadley! He is just as precious and adorable as can be, and I could not be happier for this family. I loved spending time with them all, they are the sweetest people. Thank you, Mandy and Jake, for asking me once again to take photos for you, I hope you love the preview!

Finley Grace | 5 days old

I had so much fun photographing five day old Finley last weekend, and spending time with Courtney and Jason. They were so welcoming and friendly, and made me feel right at home! Newborn sessions at home are ideal, where the new parents and baby are most relaxed, and everything they might need is right there! They were even prepared with a fantastic collection of props and headbands, not to mention a stunning nursery… and most of all a beautiful little baby girl! She was so great, and slept for some nice long stretches for me! I think she was actually awake more than usual, but sometimes that’s just how it goes on picture day! I really look forward to watching this little one grow up in the coming months, because it sounds like I may be taking her pictures throughout her first year! It’s unbelievable how quickly babies change from month to month, and it is a joy to capture those stages! At less than one week old here, you can safely say Finley is the newest and sweetest kid on the block, from her fuzzy head to her wrinkly feet, I love all those newborn details! Here are my favorites from our session, enjoy!

Violet & Connor | newborns

A couple weeks ago I got to photograph two beautiful twin babies, Connor and Violet. They are the precious son and daughter of Brittani & Jason, whose maternity photos I took back in August, and whose wedding I photographed a couple years prior! It is such a huge honor and compliment to have past clients come back and ask me to document the next milestone in life, and this one is so special. I absolutely adored spending time with these cuties. Thank you again, Brittani and Jason, for letting me capture these little miracles in photos! They are adorable!

In the basket photos, Connor is on the left, and Violet is on the right.

I loved their nursery. It is such a sweet, warm, classic space with gorgeous wallpaper and shimmery neutral tones. Absolutely stunning!
