A Little From Chandra Lee
I have the two best jobs in the world; I am a mother to a beautiful little girl who is 5 years of age and I’m blessed to work with babies and children to create lifelong memories. I graduated college in 1998 with a degree in Law Clerk Administration. I worked as a law clerk for 10 years in the areas of litigation, corporate and wills and estates. It was after having my daughter in 2008 that I began my journey in photography. I was completely inspired by my daughter; all I wanted was beautiful pictures of her growing up. I never imagined that my love for photography would turn into my career. I began taking photography classes in 2008 and have been in business ever since.
In addition to my full-time career as a custom newborn and maternity photographer, I also travel throughout the United States, Canada and Australia teaching other photographers how to properly and safely pose newborns. In addition to traveling, photographers from all around Canada and the United States have traveled to me for private one-on-one mentoring sessions.
Accreditations and Awards
I feel it is important to continue my learning and work towards earning accreditations and awards. This enables my clients to trust that they are receiving fine art photography from a photographer who has dedicated herself completely to perfecting her craft.
I currently hold a professional membership with the Professional Photographers of Canada. I hold two accreditations – one in newborn portraiture and the other in child and infant portraits. I was a Gold Awardee with the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards in 2011. Over 7,000 applicants entered the contest and only 2% were given mentions. I was the only Canadian to earn a Gold Award for the contest. The winning image, was of a newborn baby posed on his daddy’s arms. I have also earned a business impact award with the Ontario Self Employment Benefit Program. Only a few awards are given out yearly out of several hundred participants in the program. My work has also been published in the book “Portraits and People 2011”.
