If You Understand the Importance & Magic of Newborn Photography But…

You're not alone. Many feel uneasy when it's time to pose, but at Neyssa Lee Photography, my style is about capturing your natural interactions. I focus on genuine smiles, spontaneous laughter, and those quiet, tender moments, making you forget the camera is even there. I guide you into flattering positions and offer prompts that feel like you're hanging out with an old friend, not having newborn portraits taken. 

* YOU FEEL AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA

If you've scrolled through Instagram or Pinterest and felt that the highly-staged, overly-posed images don’t represent your family’s true spirit – you’re in the right place.

My approach to newborn photography is all about capturing the essence of your family's unique dynamic. No unrealistic expectations or fitting into a certain mold. Whether it’s the beautiful chaos of sibling interactions, the intimate snuggles with your newborn, or simply enjoying each other’s company, these are the moments that tell your real story.

Even more, my approach to editing is about enhancing not washing out with fliters or giving baby overly plastic skin. Meaning, I edit out baby acne and that scratch he gave himself, but I keep his skin's texture.

* You Seek Photos That Truly Reflect Your Family

Families come in all shapes and sizes, and every single one deserves to be celebrated. Dogs? Absolutely welcome. Grandparents visiting to celebrate the birth of your baby? Of course they are welcome.

Big families, small families, diverse families – all are embraced here. Your newborn session is all-inclusive, ensuring everyone feels connected and part of this special experience. Let’s capture the joy and playfulness of your unique family dynamic.

* YOU WORRY ABOUT INCLUDING EVERYONE IN YOUR NEWBORN PORTRAITS

The idea of a photo shoot with a newborn might seem daunting, but not with an in-home newborn photography session with Neyssa Lee Photography.

As a mother of six, I thrive amidst beautiful chaos and know all the tricks to ensure a smooth, low-stress experience. It's not about stiff posing; it's about capturing the fleeting, magical moments in the comfort of your home. You’ll be surprised at how relaxed and enjoyable the process can be.

Relax and enjoy the comfort of your home instead of the stress of packing up to head to a studio.

* YOU WORRY THAT PHOTOS ARE TOO STRESSFUL AFTER HAVING A BABY:

I understand that selecting photos can be overwhelming and the costs unpredictable. That's why, at Neyssa Lee Photography, every session is all-inclusive. You'll receive a beautifully designed custom album, crafted just for you, taking one more task off your to-do list. Plus, you get all the digital files – every captured moment is yours to cherish, share on social media, and enjoy with friends and family. This approach ensures a stress-free experience where you get the full value without any surprise costs.

* You Are Worried About the Stress of Choosing Photos and Overspending

Understandably, you want a photographer who is not just skilled with a camera but also deeply understands family dynamics and the nuances of newborn safety. With over 14 years of experience as a professional photographer in addition to being  a mother of six, I bring a wealth of knowledge and empathy to each session.
You can relax, knowing that your baby's safety and comfort are my top priorities. I expertly guide your family into natural, beautiful positions that are safe and comfortable for everyone – including new moms adapting post-delivery. With Neyssa Lee Photography, you're in caring, capable hands.

hello there.

I’m Neyssa Lee,
Your New Photographer FRIEND

I am Neyssa Lee, mother of six, a Disney Adult, planning obsessed, and a Seattle area photographer who uses photography to help you see the beauty in your own family’s chaos.



Motherhood is wonderful and yet oh so challenging. It is easy to get lost in the day to day, easy to forget the joy of motherhood, easy to worry that you’re not enough for your children. Well, I promise you, you are worthy, mama. 

I am passionate about helping mothers see the beauty and joy of their perfectly imperfect family. I believe that in order to capture joy, a family must actually be feeling joyful. That is why family and newborn photo sessions with me are relaxed, fun and playful.

If the thought of having photos taken stress you out, you can rest easy. I provide guidance every step of the way - from deciding on what to wear, to choosing the right location, to how to relax and love on your family during your session. 

You will walk away from your session with photographs that show off more than cute smiles. See your family’s personality, love, and connections, documented as a gallery of images for you to treasure forever.

"We loved every aspect of our experience with Neyssa Lee Photography.  Neyssa is a lovely, warm, and cheerful individual who put our shy 10-month-old pandemic baby completely at ease. During our session, her very subtle and laid-back coaching helped us to be the best versions of ourselves. And oh my gosh, the pictures. They brought tears to our eyes! The moments, love, and personalities that she captured were spot on. Neyssa truly has an eye for light, composition, angles, expressions, and, most of all, family.   We enthusiastically plan on using Neyssa for all future family photography. I also love that you can book a year in advance and that there are loyalty discounts. We can recommend Neyssa wholeheartedly! ”

I have honestly struggled to find a photographer that captured our family photos in unposed, real life images. I heard about Neyssa through our neighbor and immediately fell in love with her style of photography! Our session was so much fun and she took such amazingly beautiful images of our family. We have had so many family and friends say that when the look at our photos, they can feel the love and they truly embody us as a unit. 
We are beyond happy with our session and grateful for Neyssa and her ability to take such natural, candid and gorgeous pictures. Thank you SO MUCH, Neyssa! 

 -Amy P., North Bend, WA


Neyssa is a dream to work with! She’s warm, personable, professional, and very good with children. We did the fresh 48 session with her and she worked her magic in the tiny room we had with minimal natural light and both sets of grandparents- all with a huge smile on her face. The shoot was such a great experience and the photos we received were amazing. My husband who usually hates himself in photos was especially impressed because she made him look slim! I would highly recommend her and we will definitely seek her out again to capture future family memories. Thank you Neyssa! :)

 -Grace C., Seattle, WA


Just wanted to say thank you (x a million) for the most amazing newborn pictures of (our baby girl)!!! They are STUNNING, and the reason it took me a few days was because my hormonal mom heart couldn’t not cry happy tears whenever I looked at them or even thought about them! Thank you for capturing this moment in time in the most beautiful real light, you’re a true talent and wonderful human.

 -Sarah R., Seattle, WA


Working with Neyssa for maternity, and then newborn photos, was relaxed and fun. She really knows how to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, cracking jokes here and there. She cares deeply for the families she photographs and manages to capture the pure essence of love in her photos. I’ll be returning to neyssa for all my future family photo needs!
