Capture Special Memories with Newborn Photography
Newborn baby photography requires understanding the optimal time frame for achieving high quality pictures. Normally the babies I work with are 10 days old or less, with most of my little clients being between 5 and 8 days olds. In the event a baby comes earlier than expected, I work with the parents to determine the most appropriate time to take their baby’s pictures. Because each of my little clients is newly born, Chandra Lee Photography places your newborn’s safety first during their photography session. I carefully pose the newborn in different settings and environments, while ensuring they are safe throughout their entire baby photography session.
Parents are given a one-of-a-kind experience by capturing the first cherished moments of their little one with professional pictures. Locating the best baby photographer in Toronto for you is important to ensuring you receive the highest quality images and products. Newborns are unpredictable in their facial expressions and a smile will often flit across their face in a quick movement. This moment can only be preserved by a professional who can capture your newborn baby's first adorable grin . Because Chandra Lee is specially trained in capturing these moments on film, they can lead itself to breathtaking and cute pictures for parents to always treasure.
Chandra Lee has earned a reputation for working hard throughout her newborn sessions. Never rushing her sessions, she has unwavering patience to wait while your baby has all the feedings, changes and cuddles necessary to produce the best quality images. She knows a more than just a thing or two after photographing 700 newborns and has worked professionally as a full-time newborn photographer for 7 years. The babies are the ones who have ultimately assisted Chandra Lee in maternity the art of newborn photography and perfecting her craft.
Another factor which differentiates her from other newborn photographers in Toronto is professional training in the craft of newborn photography. She tirelessly works to explore and unleash new ways to further her craft producing exceptional quality and continues to attend ongoing seminars and training to enhance her career. In addition, Chandra Lee teaches other photographers her love of newborn photography through workshops held at her personal studio space,
My focus is on the quality of each picture I take and the newborn babies, not rushing parents and their babies to take a specific number of poses and pictures and move on to the next client. Because of my unique approach, I have been the preferred Toronto baby photographer for over 700 newborn babies.
Your pregnancy portraits session is scheduled during your 7th and 8th month of your pregnancy. Chandra Lee prefers to capture maternity portraits between 32 and 36 weeks. Specialized maternity portraits are captured including beautiful high key, silhouettes and creative lighting pictures. A striking image which is a favourite among many clients are silhouette maternity images.
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 6 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 taking pictures would turn into my career. I began taking 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 others how to properly and safely pose newborns. People from all around Canada and the United States have also travelled to me for private one-on-one mentoring sessions.
