Meet Lea St. Germain of Lea St. Germain Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lea St. Germain.

Lea, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started as a student at Salem State University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Art with a concentration in Photography. While at school I interned with a local commercial photography company where I ended up working for 15 years until I eventually branched off and became my own company. I have been working for myself through Lea St. Germain Photography for 6 years.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Like with any business there have definitely been some bumps along the way, but nothing we couldn’t work through! The biggest struggle was learning to wear all the hats when it comes to running a business. I had to learn to do a lot of things I didn’t know much about and adjust to working long hours and never having a day off. It took a long time to get where I am today and running my own business is a daily task but I love my job and wouldn’t change it for the world.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Lea St. Germain Photography – what should we know?
We do a little bit of everything here, commercial photography, interiors, portraits, boudoir, events, product photography, boutique wedding photography and much more!

We pride ourselves in giving every customer the best service and product available. I think our broad range of specialties, our willingness and enthusiasm to make every project amazing, and our service really sets us apart from others. We do not specialize in just 1 type of photography, instead, we are able to work with many different forms of photography and still always deliver an exceptional product.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
It’s hard to pick one, I would say being able to afford and maintain my own 2,000 square foot studio, having a steady flow of return clients which allow me to keep doing what I love, being able to give back to my alma mater by hiring interns every semester and teaching them all I can, and of course being able to hire an awesome employee to help me manage my business.
