“From the beautiful relaxing setting, to the silver tray of healthy treats and prosecco at my photo shoot, to the absolutely amazing photos I received from L J Photo Studio, to then top it off with a gorgeously packaged silver box and thumb drive, that I can store everything in…   Lena Jones is an absolutely stunning, classy, sweet woman who made me feel like a goddess. She is talented beyond words. Very grateful!”
Christina Bartone Jacobi, Naugatuck, CT


"If it’s true that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” then few words are required to describe the artistic talent and professionalism of Lena Jones of LJ Photo Studio. Lena photographed my modeling portfolio, and with completed portfolio in hand I secured four modeling/acting jobs in as many weeks. Lena brings out the absolute best in her subjects while still maintaining their natural look and character, yet her creativity imbues both allure and uniqueness to each photo. She brings fun and comfort to the photography session, which then becomes a great memory in itself! You feel less “a client” and more “a friend,” a friend of a photographer whom you can trust to deliver the best possible results. My job has me working with professional photographers in New York City all the time, but Lena’s comprehensive skills and amazing talents set her in a league of her own. I would recommend her for any job, as she brings the same magic to a baby shoot as she does to a wedding or corporate event. The proof is in the pictures, as you can see for yourself. With Lena as your photographer, you’ll look (and feel) your best, and your memories will be preserved beautifully for years to come."
Art McGray, Torrington, CT


“From our engagement session, to photographing our wedding, it was like working with a friend. Lena has brought out the very best in us with her ability to capture the moment. Each picture has meaning and substance, and it was our pleasure to work with such a dedicated and talented photographer.”
Bill and Robin Hall, Bristol, CT


“There were so many beautiful poses that it was actually hard to make final choices 
but everyone who has seen the final portraits can't believe that such high quality work 
was done by a local professional. But most importantly, both girls were thrilled by their pictures.”

Sue Tamburini, Middlebury, CT


“Lena captured my granddaughter beautifully in great
poses and backgrounds that were breathtaking. I
would absolutely use her for future professional photos.”

“LJ Photo Studio embodies true professionalism while making you feel like 
a life long friend. I am pleased to say that they did our engagement photo shoot, 
designed our save the dates and photographed our wedding. Lena's eye for 
artistic, unique photos is remarkable. Their creativity and attention to detail 
was truly astonishing. We were so pleased that they spent the time to visit 
our wedding venue prior to our big day to plan lighting and options for 
spectacular photos. Working with LJ Photo studio to order our save the dates, 
various prints as well as our album seemed effortless. Thanks to their talent 
and patience our wedding album is truly breathtaking. We cant wait to schedule 
our maternity shoot in the coming weeks! LJ Photo studio is just phenomenal!”

“I have never been a person that is comfortable having pictures of himself taken.  Recently I found myself in need of a professionally taken photograph so I decided to use L J Photo Studio.  I was very nervous about having to pose for the camera in a studio but Lena was very professional, she made me feel comfortable and at ease and I actually began to have fun.  The photographs she took were outstanding.  I can truly say they are the best pictures ever taken of me.  I highly recommend L J Photo Studio for any photographic need.” 
James Pozucek, Seymour, CT 


“We have two little ones. Lena was very adaptable and creative during the photo session, which we feel really helped her capture some great poses of our family. Afterwards we viewed our proofs online before sitting down with her to finalize our order. At no point in the process did we ever feel rushed or pressured.  Above all else, the photographs are outstanding.
 
We hung them on our family room wall and they have put our previous mall-quality photos to shame… ” 

Georgia and Steven Suriani, Southbury, CT

“At first I was nervous because it was like a huge photo shoot, however Lena made it comfortable and fun for me.  I love my pictures and I would recommend everyone to make an appointment.... Lena, you’re the best!!!”
Sarah Ajruli, Middlebury, CT


“L J Photo Studio did a phenomenal job capturing precious moments of my three children. Never before was I able to have them all cooperate to be photographed until now. This is due to the patience and professionalism of Lena, as well as the relaxed studio atmosphere. The photographs captured several different aspects of each of their personalities. It is priceless to know that I have their personalities frozen in time forever all because of the amazing expertise of such an outstanding photographer. I have used many different top quality photographers in the Connecticut / New York area, but have never, until now, seen quality at this level. The final products demonstrates Lena's creativity and unique ability to photograph at a variety of angles, as well as exhibits her attention to every detail.  I give my highest recommendation as well as admiration to L J Photo Studio. A rewarding experience that will last a lifetime.”
Vanessa Despres, Middlebury, CT


“Lena knows how capture the best side of her subjects with Sessions that are creative and fun.”
Nita Drakatos, Roxbury, CT


“Lena is such a professional yet completely fun and energetic! She made me feel so comfortable in her studio and the results were amazing! Thank you so much!”
Charis Wipfler, Middlebury, CT


“Wanting professional family pictures taken that included our dog, Randy, was going to be a "nightmare event" in my mind however once we arrived at L J Photo Studio it turned out to be dream come true experience.  Lena jumped right in making our dog feel like he was her dog and rolled around on the floor with all of us shooting picture after picture.  The results:  the most wonderful pictures I ever saw in my life.  She captured the many faces of Randy that we adore and now will have forever. 
They say one picture is worth a thousand words and Lena's pictures prove that is true.”
 
Nadine Burns & Nancy Alling, Southbury, CT


“We had a great experience from start to finish. There is so much effort put in at every step of the process. 
Lena's thoughtfulness and creativity made for a wonderful end result. She takes you in as a partner in 
picking/editing the portraits and you leave having found a friend who will work with you to get exactly what 
you envisioned. Oh, and if you have children who you do not think can 'sit' through a three hour photo 
session - don't ask me how, but she somehow kept them in line (when it counted!) right to the end.”

Derrick Dumoulin, Middlebury
