Hi, I am Lisa Cheney.

I am a lucky Mommy of one boy and two girls. Their names are Carter, (7) Cambria, (4) and Caia, (pronounced Kai-a) (2) My life is busy, but it’s the way I like it. I always wanted to be a Mommy. I grew up imagining a large dinner table during the holidays with my grown children with families of their own. Family is super important to me and has always brought a lot of joy into my life.

​I enjoy time on any body of water , spending time with people, and putting back a bottle or two of wine with my friends and family. My husband Christian calls me his social butterfly. Christian and I met in Sacramento while we were in college and have now been married for 13 years. He is my best friend and an incredible father.

In 2010 I decided to attend Academy of Art University, San Francisco. I studied under some of the industries top talent . It was there that I discovered my love for portraiture that is always evolving.

My goal is to live the best version of myself that I can. I want to have a memorable experience in the one life I get. I want to meet as many people I can. Most importantly I want to raise a happy and healthy family, just like every other Mommy.

I hope we get the opportunity to meet!



“I had one of the best experiences with Lisa! She was so good with the baby at the newborn session. The pictures came amazing and so different than what you usually see out there. I was extremely happy with the maternity and newborn package that she customized for me. Not only is she a professional and super talented photographer but also a really nice person, Thanks Lisa! Looking forward to more sessions with you in the future.”
