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!

Laura & Justin | expecting

I love maternity sessions and newborn sessions, so much hope and expectation, joy and wonder. What a perfect compliment to the holiday season! Laura and Justin are looking forward to meeting their baby girl later this winter, and they are bringing her into a family that is clearly so full of love and happiness. We met in Holland on a very chilly Saturday, a little blanket of snow on the ground and the shrubs, and holiday decorations beginning to pop up along the downtown sidewalks. I wore extra layers for this one! These two (three) are as sweet and gracious as anyone can be, and I loved spending this time with them. Maternity photos are priceless, for what feels like a long wait is truly a fleeting phase, one that I hope they look back on fondly. Laura and Justin, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I will look forward to seeing you again when your baby arrives!

Amanda & Jake | expecting another!

I loved taking Mandy and Jake’s maternity photos a little over two years ago. It was honestly one of my favorite sessions of all time. After their baby girl arrived, I took her newborn photos, and she has been gracing the top of my blog ever since. Now their precious little Hadley is two, and she is about to become a big sister! Since our last sessions, they have moved to beautiful Rockford, so we met downtown. It was so lovely to see them, Mandy looks just gorgeous and she and Jake are amazing parents to their daughter, who is a sweetie with a little stubborn streak starting to show up… just a little. I had so much fun with them, walking around and catching up on life, and taking some special photos to capture this time right before baby makes four! Mandy and Jake are waiting until the birth to find out the gender, so I’m excited for them and look forward to hearing the news when the time comes (and taking newborn photos)!

Pumpkin Patch

Every fall we visit Post Family Farm and the kids get to play, go on a hayride, pick their pumpkins, and we all enjoy cider and donuts. Once again, we had a wonderful time, and were fortunate to have perfect fall weather! I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from our visit. I hope you all have enjoyed this season as we brace ourselves for the cold and snow! It’s coming soon!


Alexa | Senior Session

Fall if my favorite season of all! Although I don’t do as many portrait sessions as I used to, I was happy to take Alexa’s senior photos a couple of weeks ago. Because she loves fall too, she really wanted to her senior session to be filled with gorgeous colorful leaves. We lucked out with the unpredictable Michigan weather, and it was a glorious fall day. I met up with Alexa and her parents & sister in Holland, they are such a nice family! Best of all, Alexa does not take a bad photo – she is a beauty, and perfectly sweet. I love knowing that women like her are going out into the world to do great things, and I know that she can, and will. Alexa, I wish you the best, and thank you for choosing me to take your senior portraits! Enjoy the preview!

The Boyle Family

It was good to be back at West Way Farms, photographing this beautiful family on a perfect fall day! I took the three young girls’ pictures a couple of years ago, and now they seem so much more grown up! This time, I got to meet even more of the family – some traveled all the way across the country, so this time together is so special. I am glad I was able to be there during that short window of time they were all in town, and I am so glad the weather cooperated! I had a wonderful time walking around the property, the gorgeous fall colors making the setting even more spectacular. Wendy, thank you for contacting me again for your family’s portraits, I truly appreciate it, and realize how important it was to capture your time together. I hope you like the preview!
