About Me

Professional Photographer Samantha Leon

Meet your photographer,

Samantha León.


Little Lion Photography Co. is an International Multi-Award Winning Professional Portrait Studio. I specialize in timeless fine art maternity, child and family portraiture.

I love creating art and lasting memories for families to fill their homes. When I began studying fine art photography, the works of the Baroque Period, artists Rembrandt and Vermeer all influenced my style. As such, my work is unique and each image is truly a piece of art. I enjoy choosing colors and textures for frames to mats so each memory will coordinate with the design of my client’s home. This is a part of my custom client-focused process that each family benefits from. 


In November 2019, I was the Guest Artist of the Month at M Street Arts Complex in Downtown Fresno and had the opportunity to showcase my work with many within the community. My accolades include Honors of Excellence by WPPI International Photographers Association for my Fine Art Children, Family and Maternity work; which included winning Second Place in the WPPI Annual Print Competition in 2019, Silver Distinction awards in 2020, and 2021. I was a finalist with RISE International Awards Portrait Competition along with several Silver Awards. In July of 2021, I earned my “Distinguished Accreditation” with WPE International Photography Awards which set my work at expert level. In 2022, I won 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place with The International Cosmos Awards based in Paris, France. I was voted Best Photographer in Central California by the Fresno Bee; I also placed in 1st Place and Top 3 six times over various International Competitions within that same year. Additionally, I am a member of Professional Photographers of America and am ranked within the Top 20% of Photographers for 2022.

I have also had the amazing opportunity to partner with international photography brands. I am a brand ambassador with LSP Actions by Lemon Sky in England, Nphoto Print Lab in Poland as well as The Print Foundry Lab in London, England.


Aside from my career, I am married to my supportive and encouraging husband Christopher, and mother to two humorously spirited children, Theodore and Madeline.
