    we make everyone look good in pictures

    Welcome to deelee photo

    Your expert body language photographer

    If you’re looking to create a beautiful portrait and learn something fun along the way then you’re in the right place!

    Why? Because I do a lot more than just taking your picture. I help you create the right image for your personal brand and teach you how to pose so you know how to look good in pictures every time a lens is pointed at you!

    Yes. Everyone can look good in pictures.

    I know that everyone can look great in pictures and I strive to achieve that with every single one of my clients. The number ONE reason people don’t look good in pictures is because they don’t know what to do… or what to think. Working with me you’ll learn how to do both.

    The right image for your personal brand

    Being a body language coach, I will help you achieve the right attitude and expression in your portrait to support your personal brand and match your personality…  and you’re going to learn all about your own body language along the way!

    Be it in my studio or on location, to create a portrait, or images for your brand, I look forward to working with you to make your ideas come to life!

    I look forward to working with you soon.

    Nobody is perfect..
    but you can look good in pictures
    when you know what to do.

    Before & After

    “I’m not photogenic!” I hear that one all the time…and it’s not true.

    Portraits are not taken, they are made.

    Do you still think that Angelina Jolie looks amazing on a selfie after getting out of bed? If like most people you know this is not true, then why do you still think you are not photogenic? You are! You just not know it yet.

    All the people on my website are “normal” people… as in they are not professional models, but regular people with no or little experience in front of a camera.

    Working with professional make-up artists, selecting the right wardrobe and coaching them through posing, I created images to show them in their best light and/or to put forward their more professional/glamorous/sexy/kick ass/bohemian side.

    Retouching… yes, but…

    YES… there is some retouching that goes into these photos, but not as much as you might think.

    I DO clean up spots and marks, lighten up dark circles & lines, and soften the skin a bit.

    I NEVER change my client’s shape, add boobs, remove centimetres around the waist or legs, or change any facial features… EVER. The whole objective of my work is to help people discover that the real “them” is beautiful, and I am against today’s over manipulated images being used as “standards” of beauty.

    Depending on the experience you choose, there will be more or less work to prepare for your shoot.

    If you come with friends, or organise a party in the studio, some coordination might be needed.


    It’s the big day!
    We meet at the studio or at a pre-defined outdoor location.
    We’ll select your outfit(s) and do your make up and Hair (if booked)
    Then we will create pictures together!

    You don't take pictures.
    You make them.

    Why shoot with me?

    it's a fair question... here's why!

    A photoshoot is a fun experience, but it can be pretty unnerving to step in front of a camera lens! You might be worried about not knowing what to prepare, how to pose, what to wear, or might even be worried that you won’t look good in the photos… and that’s why I will be with you every step of the way and help you from our first contact to way after we’ve finished shooting together.

    It’s all about you!

    This is your moment and your experience. I’m here to serve you and create images that match your wishes.

    We’ll discuss together what type of look(s) you want to explore, and you will choose how far, or not, you want to go.

    Be it taking very natural looking images solo or with your friends, to transforming you into a top model sex bomb, or anything in the middle… you choose!

    Great customer service

    From selecting the right shoot for you, helping you choose the best outfits, coaching you on body language and posing, and selecting the best photos… you won’t have to worry about a thing!
    I care for all my clients personally and I shoot and retouch all the photos. No assistants or apprentices suddenly showing up at your shoot.
    I keep in touch with you on a regular basis and send you information emails as we go through the project, and I’ll be there to answer any question you might have.
    But don’t just take my word for it… check out the recommendations on my LinkedIn profile.

    Posing coaching

    I know that it can be really challenging to stand in front of a camera, look natural, and be in the right attitude all at the same time… especially when you’ve never done this before! Actors spend years of training to achieve this, so it’s no wonder people get a little nervous about this part.

    That’s why I’ve specialised in body language and posing techniques. I will coach you through the whole process to create pictures that convey the right image, all while allowing you to relax.

    A few words from my clients...

    • Danielle is an A.M.A.Z.I.N.G photographer!!! She knows how to put forward the best part of yourself. She is very friendly and always smiling, so you can be confident and you always spend a good time with her. Thanks for your work and see you for a next session ;)

      Tiana E.· Singer & Vocal Coach
    • I initially met and worked with Danielle as she was part of one of my Finance teams at Philip Morris. She has then moved on and established her own successful business. I recently used her services as I needed a series of professional pictures to be taken, and could definitely recognize the qualities that Danielle had demonstrated in the past: Good listener, professional, quick, efficient, creative, and result-oriented. Within a very short timeframe, I obtained exactly what I needed. I would definitely recommend Danielle’s services to anyone.

      Marc-Alain W.· CFO & CIO
    • Not only is Dee a very talented photographer but she's also a wonderful business partner to work with. She helped build the lifestyle visuals for our 'Maman et Moi' collection and grasped the essence of the project from the very beginning. She knows how to get the best from the models (even very young ones :), and brings her very soft and personal touch to the pictures in a way that matches the brand equity and needs perfectly. She's also very good at managing last minute challenges (very poor natural light that didn't impact the quality of the photos, last minute location change...) and leads the project taking initiatives while listening very closely to her customer's needs. In one word, she's the IDEAL partner to work with!

      Sara M.· Founder & Owner at Pépites Sà rl
    • Dee is a wonderfully creative, very thoughtful and highly professional partner in image-building. She predicted my photographic needs beautifully, and her guesses at what types of photos I might need as my business has developed and my debut novel began to get attention were exactly right. She blends just the right amount of training (as a model herself) within her fun and very efficient approach to the photo shoot and then the production. I highly recommend DeeLee Photo Design.

      Nancy F.· Author
    • Danielle took the most fantastic pictures of me that I've ever had taken. I didn't realize I could look so good. She made me feel comfortable and beautiful. If I were to do this again, I would hire her in an instant! It was a fantastic experience!

      Tonda P.· Leader at Weight Watchers
    • Danielle is a highly experienced creative professional and sincerely customer oriented. She knows how to build trust in a relationship and creates during the photo shooting an atmosphere which is just magic. Making you feeling comfortable and for a while the center of the world. An enjoyable experience!

      Jean-Francois G.· Consultant
    • Danielle has provided beautiful results for multiple projects, both personal and professional, and is a valued partner throughout the process. Her dedication to delivering only the best quality to her clients is a rare value in this business and her personal and professional integrity is un-paralleled. I look forward to working with Danielle on many projects to come...

      Laura E.· Velveteen Clothing
    • In my 30 years of working with photographers in the industry of hair, make up and beauty I have never got the quality of service, photos, skill and editing style i received from working with Danielle. Her strong feel and passion for the right angle, light and pose is unique. Apart from the great skill of photography she is and amazing professional business women to work with. Her soft but confidant way of working with clients always made them feel confident and beautiful and sending my clients over for a "photos shoot experience" with Dee would result in them Loving every minute and excited to share all the photos! I recommend Dianielle 100 % with utmost confidence!

      Rennie F.· Owner at Hollywood Hair
    • For anyone needing a professional headshot I highly recommend Danielle Libine from Deelee Photostudio near Lausanne. Danielle is an excellent photographer who will help you feel comfortable and at ease. She offers great suggestions, is warm and friendly and she will take your professional background into account. Time and money well spent, I couldn't be happier with my photographs!

      Corrina L.· Tax Consultant
    • If you have met Dee or seen her work, then you probably aren't even reading this, because once you have met her, you will instantly know you are going to get good results. Dee put me at ease right away, and I loved the pictures she took of me. She also made the experience a whole lot of fun! Dee also took pics of my mom, who hates getting her picture taken, and I couldn't believe the results, or how much my mom loved the experience! If Dee was still in Hong Kong, I'd be signing up for more! And so would a few of my friends who were disappointed they'd miss the chance. Book her now!

      Lindsay P.· Hong Kong
    • I have worked with many photographers and designers over the past 10 years of my career. Dee has an aptitude for understanding clients that sets her apart from the many freelance photographers on the market. She paid close attention to what I had to say during consultation sessions over the phone and via email and respected my request for a no fuss approach to my professional portrait session. I am pleased with the results as Dee perfectly captured my personal brand in the final photo. With her pleasant personality and innate ability to put her clients at ease, I would not hesitate to recommend Dee to friends and colleagues.

      Vanessa R.· Editor International Federation of Volleyball
    • ===One of the Best Portrait Photographers We've Met===
      Danielle can really see the beauty in the people being photographed and fully capture it through her camera. Together with her strong background in graphic design and her unique eyes on colours, her work possesses an interesting dimension not commonly found in other portrait photography.

      Jack Man.· Pixlbrew Printing
    • Dee is an amazing photographer. She has magical eyes that catches the beauty in everyone. She is fun to work with. Each shoot has been a fantastic day off. Everyone should have beautiful shots of their family and/or of themself. Dee is very good with children as well and my 2 kids had the best experience ever. I highly recommend Dee and would do it again for sure. It has a been a true pleasure working with her - photography is art and Dee is clearly an artist. She also has an amazing sense of humor and warmth!
