You started your business out of passion,
but That isn't Enough Anymore.
You quickly learned that the "business" side of your business is taking over your life. As the passion is being sucked from your business, the reality hits that growing a successful and sustainable business requires more than simply loving what you do. You need branding, systems and business strategies to start attracting your dream clients. You need all this, on limited time and income. You aren't there yet, but I can help you get there.
Hi! I'm Neyssa Lee

Take your business to the next level with self-guided courses designed to help the busy photographer grow a sustainable business. From Mastering Blogging to mastering your Time, find the course (or two) and start thriving.
I am Neyssa Lee, mother of six, planning & Disney obsessed, and a Seattle area photographer who has been in your shoes trying to grow a business.
Starting a business is one thing. Those first months (or even years) are full of passion, grateful for each and every client.
As time goes on, you quickly realize that you need more than passion, that overwhelm creeps in regularly. So does the fear that you might not have what it takes. Not to mention you started a business so that you could spend more time doing the things you love with the people you love.
I have felt on the brink of giving up and getting a "real job." I have felt lonely, like I had no one to talk to, and the weight of my business on my shoulders. No one should feel like that.
You are not alone. Your voice and your business matter in this world.
So let's connect, let's turn your business into a thriving machine that brings back the passion and gives your freedom and time back.

"As a mom (for almost 18 years) and a business owner/photographer (for almost 10 years), I am well aware of the work/life challenge we all face. The stress, frustration, and mom-guilt are real. We know time is our most precious resource and finding balance may seem daunting. It's not.
Neyssa has been able to guide me back on a sustainable plan that allows me to give myself fully, to both family and work. Her simple, yet highly effective systems are truly based on first hand knowledge and experience.
After implementing one change, I immediately saw, and felt, results! This was huge and set me up to implement another change, then another. All these seemingly small steps are really laying the foundation.”

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!

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! :)

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.

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!
