About Us

Meet your photographer,

Samantha León.

Thank you so much for visiting our website, it is a pleasure to have you here.
Little Lion Photography Co. is an International Multi-Award Winning Professional Portrait Studio. We specialize in timeless fine art maternity, newborn, child and family portraiture.
Little Lion Photography Co. is owned and operated by Samantha León, the only fine art photographer in the Central Valley. 
We love creating art and lasting memories for families to fill their homes. When Samantha began studying fine art photography, the works of the Baroque Period, artists Rembrandt and Vermeer all influenced her style. As such, her style is unique and each image is truly a piece of art. She enjoys choosing colors and textures from frames to mats so each memory will coordinate with the design of her client’s home. This is a part of our custom client-focused process that each family benefits from. 
In November 2019, Samantha was the Guest Artist of the Month at M Street Arts Complex in Downtown Fresno and had the opportunity to showcase her work to many within the community. Samantha’s accolades include Honors of Excellence by WPPI International Photographers Association for her Fine Art Children, Family and Maternity work; which included winning Second Place in the WPPI Annual Print Competition in February 2020. She was a finalist with RISE International Awards Portrait Competition along with several Silver and Bronze awards. In July of 2021, Samantha earned her “Distinguished Accreditation” with WPE International Photography Awards which set her work at expert level. She also is a brand ambassador with LSP Actions by Lemon Sky as well as with Nphoto Print Lab in Poland.
Aside from her career, Samantha is married to her supportive and encouraging husband Christopher, and mother to two humorously spirited children, Theodore and Madeline. 
Contact us so we can preserve your memories and capture those fleeting moments together.
