Newborn Photographer


Cherishing thoughts of your family and children for years to come can be more than just a memory.  Let me be the artist who creates the perfect vision for your newborn, baby, and family portraits. As a former art teacher with a Masters in Art Education, the visual arts are my forte. My love for the arts and the joy of being a mother of 3 children, naturally inspired me to be a Maryland newborn photographer.

A Photograph only becomes more valuable over time

My Philosophy 

I've had a camera since childhood, but I learned technical film photography in college. Much of my artwork has been inspired by my travels throughout Europe, especially Italy. I was an art teacher for seven years and then a stay-at-home mom after my 1st child was born.

By the time I had my 3rd child, I began learning the art of posed newborn photography. Maryland newborn photography requires patience and gentle posing and I have been trained to safely pose babies. I hope to make your experience relaxing and memorable. In addition to studio sessions, I am often outdoors taking lifestyle portraits of families around Maryland. 

Newborn, baby, maternity, and family photography

about Rebecca

Studio or in-home newborn sessions in Maryland are both wonderful ways to remember these fleeting early days. You spend so much time caring for your newborn, that even after only a week, you already know your baby's unique features and sounds. Upon every moment with your little one, you become familiar with them so quickly. Maryland Newborn Photographer, Rebecca Leigh, showcases these little features with a combination of baby-led posing and gentle posing using skilled wrapping techniques and positioning pillows underneath fabrics.

Using a mixture of neutrals and muted color tones, soft fabrics, wraps, and delicate headbands, all provided in the studio, your photo session will be customized to your preferences. Clients who love the focus to be on their baby with just the addition of some simple artistic details to create beautiful portraits, will receive that in their gallery. My Maryland newborn photography editing style is light and true to life, so you'll enjoy your classic images forever.  

You'll want to remember all of the details of your baby from birth to the first year. And when you print your photos, you can view these special memories at any time, in the form of an album, matted prints, or frames on your walls. Parents are busy caring for their babies, so Rebecca Leigh offers custom artwork and complimentary design.  So you can take this off your "to-do" list. Just have your portraits taken, select your favorite images from your online gallery, and allow Maryland newborn photographer, Rebecca Leigh, to create your artwork for you.

Moms and dads have the best intentions when it comes to printing their baby's photos, but it can be overwhelming trying to do it on your own. Your images might just sit on your computer without the assistance of an artistic expert. A newborn photographer will help you decide what to include in your artwork and make recommendations for what can work in your home space. Consider an album if you want to view several images at any time, but not have them take up too much space in your home. Ready to decorate a blank wall in your home?  Consider a large framed fine art print or a grouping of 2 or more frames.
