About Me

Hi! I am Lisa West, a family lifestyle photographer based in Sudbury Massachusetts. I love working in natural light with a relaxed and casual vibe for all of my photography sessions. 

My passion for photography began when I became a Mom, over a decade ago. Capturing my two sons in everyday moments and preserving them for years to come was the spark that has grown into a full blown love for photography. I have found that the in-between moments of life are where the real gems live and it is always my goal to try to save these moments forever. 

When you are raising a family the days may pass slowly, but your children change so quickly that being able to look back at each stage of their childhood is priceless. I love working with couples and families, and my natural joie de vivre lends itself to an effortless photo session for all. I would be honored to capture the moments of your family running, jumping, twirling, sharing a secret giggle, snuggling or sometimes even posing. Every family has a story to tell and I would love to help capture yours for years to come. 


Lisa made our family photo session fun! She was professional but also made us feel at ease. We appreciated how flexible she was with our schedule. We did the shoot at our home and got the whole session done in under 30 min! She sent the photo album back quickly and so many of the shots came out great. Would highly recommend Lisa West!

It takes a certain type of photographer to get the perfect shot of my children, and yet Lisa manages every time. My children love her, which makes family photo shoots with Lisa fun, natural and stress free. She is a true professional with bucket loads of creative talent and absolutely the person we want behind the lens to capture our special moments!

Lisa is professional, warm, and incredibly talented. She makes the process of taking family photos fun and easy, even for teens. She effortlessly captures everyone's personalities and the essense of us as a family while also ensuring that each picture has the perfect lighting and backdrop. We are beyond grateful for all the beautiful pictures, the ease of the process, and the memories that we can hold onto forever.

Lisa is warm and friendly and puts everyone around her at ease. She has a way of connecting with children of all ages that brings out their true personalities in her photos.

Lisa West Photography exudes positive energy and a delightful attitude - she is an absolute joy to collaborate with! Her commitment to curating the ideal ambiance for a group of 5 boys headed to their Jr. Prom was outstanding, and her infectious enthusiasm made the entire process seamless and enjoyable. Throughout the session, the boys were completely comfortable and never experienced a moment of awkwardness. Her turnaround time was lightning-fast, and I cannot wait to work with her again!
