I’m Leyre Cañizares, a couple and family photographer based in New York City area. I was born and raised in Madrid, Spain, although the last years I lived for some time in Maastricht (The Netherlands), Boston (Massachusetts) and Oxford (UK). I have worked in different cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Miami, Boston, Paris, London and others.
My passion for photography developed alongside my relationship with my amazing boyfriend, Juan, who is also responsible for this website. It was with him when I realised the importance of capturing our memories in a camera, thus becoming unforgettable. Now, with almost eight years together, who would have told us we would be living in New York while I work as a professional photographer as well as improving my english and he does his master’s at Columbia University. Also, I’d want to thank my family and friends for all the support they have given me since I started with photography, especially my father, who bought me a professional camera to start working.
Apart from photography, I adore spending time in nature or with animals, travelling to new places (the furthest the better!), watching series and eating brownies and chocolate cakes!
