First, since I know you’re wondering, my name is pronounced just like “Lisa.”
Leise Jones, Owner
That’s right – regular ol’ Lisa. Just spelled with a few extra vowels. I love to photograph real life. Not a posed, dramatically lit, and over-edited version of real life. Actual real life.
Oh, and I love laughter.
Genuine mouth-open, shoulders-rocking, breathless laughter is what I look for when I am photographing families and celebrations. I love it. I believe laughter makes the most authentic, joyful, and compelling photos of any occasion or interaction.
Some other things that I really love include my wife, Steph; our twins, Kellam & Evie; my gray hair (which I swear I’ll never cover up); family-style meals (they’re just so much more efficient), coffee with lots of cream (half coffee, half cream to be exact); and public radio (it’s pretty much the only radio I listen to.)
Now for the serious stuff.
Since 2009, I've been helping families document their interactions, relationships, up, and downs by creating authentic lifestyle portraits.
I have young kids, so I know firsthand that families are not perfect. Families are messy and complicated and exhausting and hilarious. I make family photos that reflect that messy, hilarious family life; not a overly posed and perfectly retouched version of family life. The goal of my family portrait sessions is to show families being themselves.
I also work with small businesses and non-profit organizations of all kinds who are looking for photographs to tell their story and communicate their missions.
Clients have described me as an excellent coach; honest, caring, professional and unobtrusive. I have received the Couples’ Choice Award from The Wedding Wire every year since 2015 and have unanimous five star reviews ***** on both The Wedding Wire and Yelp. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America, have a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College, and a Certificate in Professional Photography from the New England School of Photography. I live in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston with my amazing wife, hilarious twins, and lazy housecats. I love Boston, and I travel throughout New England to work with my awesome clients. I can't wait to hear from you to get started making beautiful and authentic photographs.
