What are the High-Resolution Digital Images?
After your photoshoot you will receive your color enhanced, High-Resolution Digital Images. I will edit out the blinks, blurs, and obvious ‘in-between’ shots, and share for your review all pictures from your session. Each package comes with a certain number of High-Resolution Digital Images that you will be able to download from your online gallery. From your Online Gallery you will also be able to select your favorite images for Artistic Retouching and the Fine Art Digital Composition. If you want to purchase more images than are offered in your package, please do not hesitate to ask me.
What is Artistic Retouching?
With the Artistic Retouching, I will remove or reduce any imperfections to improve the overall image, both background, and subject. This includes skin and silhouette enhancement. I remove blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, eczema, dry patches, and erase dark circles. My style retains skin texture while keeping shading and highlights natural. Furthermore, on request, I can slim double chins and extra weight. At your request, I can also whiten your teeth and improve the overall appearance of your hair. I strive to make you look your absolute best while still looking like yourself. Please refer to the before/after gallery for examples.
What is a Fine Art Digital Composition?
With the Fine Art Digital Composition, I will photoshop the subject into a scenic background of choice from our portfolio. Options for newborns include baskets and swings. Options for Maternity include flying silks and windowed silhouettes. The Fine Art Digital Composition includes Artistic Retouching as described above. Please refer to the before/after gallery for examples.
How long after the photoshoot will I receive my photos? Is there a fast turn around available?
You will receive your High-Resolution Digital Images two weeks after your photoshoot. From there you will be able to select your Artistic Retouching and your Fine Art Digital Composition. Two weeks after submission you will receive your retouched images.
A fast turnaround is available for an additional $100 rush fee. We will deliver your downloadable gallery link of High-Resolution Digital Images within three days instead of two weeks. After that, you will be able to select photos for your Fine Art Retouching and can also have them delivered within three days instead of two weeks for another $100 rush fee.
Where will the session take place?
Le Studio Portrait Photography NYC has two locations, one in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn. We also offer in-home sessions with identical options and results.
Our Brooklyn studio is located at 14 Verona street suite 2D. The 1,500 square-foot, 16ft ceiling studio has elevator access and easy parking. You will probably be able to park right in front of the building at our Brooklyn location!
Our Manhattan Studio is conveniently located in the center of the city in Union Square, at 873 Broadway, suite 503. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. It will be a pleasure to help you prepare for a session or find either Le Studio NYC location.
We also offer in-home sessions for an additional cost. Experience a high-end newborn, baby, or family session in the comfort of your own home with equal results. The choice of props, scenic backgrounds, and styling is identical to studio photoshoots. You do not need to worry about lighting, as I will bring professional studio lighting equipment. On-site shoots are available for Complete and Deluxe Sessions only, in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. Please inquire for a custom travel fee if you are based elsewhere. I can travel nationally and internationally.
What are my usage rights for the photographs?
You are free to use the images from your photoshoot for your personal use and for self-promotion. Even though Le Studio maintains copyright for all photos, we are very flexible and want you to get the most use out of your photos. Please tag us on social media when you publish your photos!

Here what others are saying about Le Studio:
“I had a wonderful session with my 1-year old daughter, husband, and mother-in-law at Le Studio. The owner was sensitive, artful, and relaxed, which helped our baby have the stamina to pose for nearly four hours. A tense photographer would have transmitted discomfort to my baby, but this photographer made things fun and creative. We received an abundance of gorgeous shots to choose from and have made several prints which we are in the process of framing and hanging in our home. My husband is an artist and we are both aesthetically picky, so the fact that we had so many great choices was a big win. I have recommended Le Studio and would do so again.” – Shana L.
“The photographer at Le Studio is great and very professional. I love their style–hip and creative. After working with them, I can truly say: ‘They are Awesome!’” DJ Lance Rock From Yo Gabba
“I was searching for a classy headshot and I found LeStudio NYC at PWP Online. I LOVE the new headshots I just took with Lea. They are timeless, classy, and simply beautiful. She captured me at my best, and it really shows. I am usually uncomfortable in staged photos, but Lea was very helpful in giving me suggestions that resulted in a natural smile I never knew I had! If you are looking for a great headshot, she is the girl to go to. Thanks again for such great results!!!” – Susan Lee
“Thank you so much for donating your talents. As a mother of two little ones, I know how priceless a beautiful photograph can be! What makes your work unique is that you don’t do a standard portrait rather you play with the color and themes of childhood. Again, thank you so much.” Mary Cannon
