hello and welcome title.jpg

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, to Drew; a super down to earth, outdoorsy guy, and I'm also rocking the mom life with a threenager and one year old and two sweet, sweet pups- a lazy mutt and psychotic chocolate lab.

The biggest goal I have for my business is the gift of moments. We hear it all the time, and 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'll have those moments, forever, because I invested in having them documented, and I only want the same for you! 

To check out some of my work the camera visit my photography links and visit here to read more about who I am. I'm so blessed to have you here and I hope you enjoy my internet-space!

 It's not that we don't want to have our children photographed every month for the rest of their lives. It's that in that first year, we learn how fleeting parenthood is. One day, they're the smallest little baby laying on your chest and the next, their toddling around on two feet. It's that quick! There's SO MUCH that goes into parenting and navigating the first year; whether it's your 1st time momming or your 5th go around with those first stages. Parenthood is a constant battle to keep them small but help them learn how to grow. I've created The Milestone Collection to give you a year to remember. From your moments together growing your child inside of you, all the way to their first birthday, I want to gift mama's with the memories of their babies while being able to enjoy all the moments in between.

 It's not every day you get the opportunity to have a session centric of your belly. I get it. That sounds less than ideal. You've created and are growing a human being. It's inside of you. That's CRAZY! Every single pregnancy is unique and special, even for the same woman, multiple pregnancies. You're never going to be in this moment again. As a first time mom, you'll find out all to soon how fleeting this stage of your life is going to be and as an experienced momma you already know; so let's start now. Let's document your body, your journey, your growing family.

 A Lifestyle Newborn Session must be held in the clients home. These sessions are centric of baby, but use unique spaces of your home as the setting for your photos. The purpose of these sessions is to represent the truest form of your life together as a family, so living spaces should not be altered to "accommodate" me.
