Whether it is your first child, or your fifth, I believe it is important to capture the time before baby arrives with a maternity photo session. Whether you want your session in your home, or at an outdoor location around the Seattle to Snoqualmie Pass areas, my sessions are about making mom and her baby bump shine. Learn about Maternity Photo Sessions.

They are where the tickle monster exists, where your child flies to the moon as you toss them up high, where stomping on pine cones turns us into dinosaurs on the hunt. Where we explore a new park, looking for the perfect place to play. Where your toddler becomes an airplane, refueling by a kiss for baby sister during your newborn photo session.  

Your children show you the magic and wonder in the world each day. Your photo sessions with me are about capturing that joy, that magic, that love and wonder you experience together as a family. I believe the only way to photograph that joy is for you to actually experience joy. So we lean into the silly, playful nature our children bring out in us. We will not focus on "poses" during your Seattle area session, but on prompts that bring out authentic laughter and connection. photographs. 

Family and newborn portrait sessions are where MAGIC happens. 

hello there.

I’m Neyssa Lee,
Your New Photographer FRIEND

I am Neyssa Lee, mother of six, 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!
