Lemons & Ants Family“Keep your families close together, and love and honour your children.”
― Gordon B. Hinckley

Lemons & Ants Studios is a family-focused Toronto Newborn photography studio. Located in Leslieville Toronto Beaches Area. Whose mission is to document the recollection of your family’s story. Bringing them to life in high-quality artwork.

Anthony and Le Man is father, mother to three little ones Ellie, Caleb, Abel. Photographer. Editor. Stylist.

In the beginning, they’ve spent a considerable amount of time pouring through each other’s childhood archives. Getting to know each other through these albums.

From this, they wanted the same experience for their children. They started pouring time into finding beautiful heirloom wall art pieces and archival quality albums.

This has now become the core focus of their passion. To ensure each client leaves with something they can enjoy in their homes and be able to pass on to their children.

We all know this moment is fleeting and life passes by quickly. Especially that of a child’s and parents’ memories alike, fade.

All we can do is to preserve the tidbits that tell our children a little of their history. While digital files are great as backup files, they are not permanent and their expected lifespan is limited.

Our wall portraits, albums and boxes are individually handcrafted and are made from archival quality (museum grade) materials and ink, so that parents will be able to pass this on from generation to generation.

When you make the decision to partner with Lemons & Ants Studios. You sign up for the most enjoyable and relaxing experience of a photo session. Will your family legacy live on a USB in a drawer or wall portrait or an heirloom album.

Behind the Scenes


We love what we do, and enjoy the families we work with. It’s also important to hear what families say about working with us. We invite you to read through our reviews from families we have worked with.

We had an amazing experience with Le Man and Anthony at our at-home newborn photo session for our twins. The session was so calming, beautiful, and respectful of our new family. As first-time parents we appreciated their immense care for our twins and our family and the experience was better than we ever expected. We even took away some baby tips for the twins and they were so gracious to even take meaningful photos with our own personal twists! The reveal of the photos was also so beautiful and thoughtful and we are excited to see our final products. Communication and quick responses has been top notch and I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. We look forward to more sessions as our twins grow! Thank you so much for all your kindness and of course, the amazingly beautiful photo memories of our twins and our new family!

We loved having Le Man and Anthony for our photo sessions, in fact, they are the first one we would think of when deciding who to select for our photo sessions. We had one when our daughter was 3 months old, and we recently had one of our family of 4 (2 daughters) in our own home. Anthony was very creative in terms of capturing us at certain angles and natural light which the photos turned out to be amazing. We hung our pictures on our wall and we received constant comments on how much they love the photos. From the beginning to the end, they were accommodating to understand your needs and they established the trust not only with us, but with our children which was a huge factor in making our photos a success, they have a good judgement on which photos are best for you with your feedback. Overall, they are truly the best ones if you are looking for the precious memories that you can have and pass it down your family generations. Thank you for creating a life treasure of memories for us.

We recently used Lemons and Ants for our daughter’s newborn photo shoot. Our experience working with Le Man and Anthony was excellent! They were very sweet and patient with the baby and did a fantastic job of calming her and keeping her relaxed. I wish they offered their services as babysitters 😀 The photos turned out beautiful and we’re very happy with them. I would definitely recommend.
