"Capturing Our One-Chance-Only Newborn Experience in Photos!."

We used Léa at Le Studio for our newborn photoshoot. We could not be more pleased with our experience. Booking was easy, and she followed up with multiple emails and texts to make sure she new exactly what kind of photos and experience we wanted. She is clearly very experienced and skilled at her craft -- she has an incredible way with newborns to keep them (and us) calm, comfortable, and well behaved. And the results are exceptional. We will cherish these photos and this one-chance-only experience forever. Cannot recommend Le Studio any higher!

– Shyam A.

"Léa the Fantastic and Highly Skilled Newborn Photographer!"

Léa was a fantastic and highly skilled newborn photographer. Her artistry is apparent in how she manages both the technical photography aspects of the shoot, interacting with the newborn (she is a baby whisperer!) and making the newborn's parents feels comfortable and happy throughout the entire session. Booking was super easy and quick and she follows up by text, email and phone call if she has not heard from you or if you have further questions which makes you really feel like a valued customer. Image turn around was quick and the final product was stunning and priceless. Highly recommend Léa and Le Studio, she's worth it!

"I plan to use Le Studio for future milestone events in my family’s life."

If you choose Le Studio for your newborn photography session you will no-doubt get beautiful photographs just like what you see on her website and social media, but you will also be able to breathe a sigh of relief that your child is in the hands (literally) of someone who is careful, considerate, and knowledgeable. I actually learned a few soothing techniques watching Léa so carefully wrap and position my daughter throughout the photo shoot. Léa also was accommodating in giving us more time than what was quoted so that we could feed and allow our daughter to fall back asleep.  I am super happy with the photography results and also glad that the experience itself was as smooth as it was. I plan to use Le Studio for future milestone events in my family’s life.
