“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”   

-        Aaron Siskind

My name is Lesley and I am the face behind the camera at Lesley Cowan Photography.  I fell in love with photography as a girl and now make my living capturing the early moments of childhood.

Specializing in Maternity and Newborn photography, nothing makes me happier than documenting the early milestones of your child’s life. As most parents can attest, the first weeks, months and even years fly by and I love to focus on a baby’s perfect pout, their tiny little toes and chubby baby rolls.  It’s so easy to forget this special time but my photos have the magical ability to transport you back to that moment, and more importantly that feeling. 

During my sessions I try to capture timeless, ordinary, everyday moments that become extraordinary once you look back at them. I have a pure and simple style, letting your child’s innocence shine through my lens. I stock a wide range of beautiful props and wardrobe selections to customize the feel for your shoot and am happy to stylize your session to ensure your vision translates to print. 

In my studio, safety is of utmost importance. I have the training and education to guarantee your child will be posed with care and will always be safe in my space.

I get so much joy from my newborn/children’s sessions.  My heart lies with making kids laugh and feel comfortable to let their natural smile and giggles shine through. I love knowing that the photos I’ve created will become priceless heirlooms for your family in years to come. One day, when your children have grown, you’ll hold on to these images and they will be cherished and remembered forever.

I’m proud to create art for your family to last a lifetime. In addition to digital images, I offer prints, canvas and other products for you to display in your home.

I would love to capture beautiful memories for you and your family and look forward to hearing from you!
