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!

    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!

South Higgins Lake State Park

This week we took a little trip up North and camped with the kids in a tent, cooked foil dinners and s’mores, played in the lake, and just took it easy with nothing in particular to do. We had a great time. I made a point to take some non-phone pictures of the kids while we were there. I also spent a lot of time just staring at the firepit, and watching the kids splash in the shallow water. It was lovely. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone! Happy Summer!

The Eagle

Seeing a bald eagle in the wild is always special. A couple weekends ago we were Up North (just southeast of Cheboygan), staying at a friend’s house on Lake Huron. I brought my camera with the best intentions of taking a lot of pictures with something besides my phone, but I never used it except for this one instance. My friend spotted this eagle perched on a rock. My longest lens was in the car, so the best option was my 100mm macro lens! I snapped four or five photos through the living room window, hoping one might turn out! What a view, what a majestic bird.

Grayson Ezra | 8 days old

Grayson made his appearance right around the time I blogged Amanda and Josh’s maternity session at Tunnel Park, and I was so excited when I let her know her blog post was up, only to get a reply a couple days later letting me know things had been a little busy – Grayson was born! I was so surprised! We got a session scheduled right away, so I was able to take photos of him before we left for a trip up north last weekend. When I got to their house, Amanda answered the door holding this perfect little sweetie. He was so good for pictures, and I think we got plenty of beautiful photos that capture that newborn face, which seems to change a little every day! Amanda and Josh, congratulations to you all and to your families, and welcome Grayson! I loved working with you, and I hope you enjoy this preview!

“This is what handsome looks like.” Notice the finger pointing…;)
Soothing their little boy, I thought this was a sweet moment with Daddy and Mommy’s hands.
And, it worked!

Brennigan - I know I tell you this every time you do a newborn session, but your newborn sessions are my favorite of everyone’s! I love when you blog these!

Amanda & Josh | expecting

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing this cute mom and dad-to-be at Tunnel Park in Holland. Amanda is due later this month, and I just have to say, she looks absolutely amazing! She and Josh know they are having a baby boy, and are very excited about meeting him… and it won’t be much longer! I really loved spending a little time with them and capturing this beautiful chapter in their lives! They have so many incredible moments to look forward to, and I hope everything goes wonderfully for them as they prepare for the birth of their son! Thank you both, again, for choosing me to be your photographer for this session! I look forward to hearing the exciting news in a couple weeks!
