My name is Christie, I'm the girl behind the camera at Christie Leigh Photo. In my photography business, I specialize in Maternity, Newborn, Lifestyle and Family photography in Warren OH, Youngstown OH, Sharon PA and surrounding areas in Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. I love meeting new people and creating relationships that last. Honesty is something that I live by, sometimes that gets me in trouble, but I hope to always feel super passionate about keeping it real with the people that I love.
I'm small town raised and my husband and I continue to grow our family in a small town in Northeast Ohio, just north of Youngstown and about an hour south of Cleveland. I'm a wife, first to Drew; he's super down to earth and loves the outdoors [and sleep]. I'm also totally rocking the mom life- and that's "rocking" as in I love it, but I fail daily and I'm not sure there's any better avenue to go in parenting! I wasn't a "cryer" before becoming a mom, but with a threenager and an 8 month old, I'm finding I do so often; I've grown fond of the lock on our bathroom door. I can't forget about our children before children; our family wouldn't be complete without our lazy mutt and crazy chocolate lab.
The biggest goal I have for my business is the gift of moments. We hear it all the time, but as a mother, I know all too well how quickly our babies grow and how difficult it is to remember. Through all of the tips to keep them small forever [keepsakes, journaling, writing letters, taking videos] there's nothing like being transported back to that EXACT stage of life, like you are when you look at pictures of your kids. I look at pictures of Savannah from her first year and I can hear the way she kind of growled when she laughed, or remember that she did always scrunch up her nose when she was overjoyed- because I didn't really notice that she had stopped doing that, I can see where she started to clap from one month to the next and when she was six months old ALL she did was blow raspberries! I have those moments, forever, because I invested in having them documented and I only want the same for you!
