Nathan Boisclair and Samantha Lerner are scam artists! There are more people out there than just me. I paid top dollar for wedding pictures to be taken and to have pictures. I never got anything!!! They don't return phone calls or emails, don't trust them!!! It is some kind of sick joke, they post your pictures on the internet then never send you your pictures. Ruined my wedding!!!

    We had the same problem with them with some pictures of our kids that we had done. They responded to emails (for a while) and claimed they sent the photos (multiple times) yet we never received anything. AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS!!

    You guys need to start a small claim against them.
    Samantha lives in Burton, so if you file in Burton or Grand Blanc, that will work, and you will win.

    Goto this website:

    to see what other kinds of issues she has gotton into.

    She is a crook. Don't let her take your money, and get away with it!

    Interesting enough they have changed their name from Xen Studio to Samantha Lerner Portraiture (

    Crooks covering their tracks. Sadly, they're going to end up scamming many more people.

    Unfortunately, Samantha Lerner is my niece.

    But, she has scammed our family, I'm included, out of 10s of thousands of dollars, with no remorse. Needless to say, no contact with these family members any longer.

    She scams friends, clients and anything she can get her hands on. Wanna guess where the money goes????

    Help this poor criminal out, and help to put her out of harms way to society.

    Important to note, her full name is SAMANTHA JOY URQUHART-LERNER and his is NATHAN DAVID BOISCLAIR...

    I very much agree with the complaints.

    For anyone reading these complaints- I advise you to stay far away from Samantha Lerner and Nathan Boisclair- they are thieves, liars, and scam artists and I am in the process right now of filing a law suit to try and recoup some of the money that is owed to me.
    I see that she she still has her photography business and although she is a good photographer, she has no ethics whatsoever, so you should use caution when commissioning her for any service at all.
    She is constantly changing her photography name due to her bad reputation.

    I hope that this helps

    To anyone who believes they have not received their images,

    Please post your email address and I will communicate with you to come to a resolution. It is not my intentions to withhold any pictures that have been paid for and I will make every attempt to correct your situation.

    Unfortunately there is no way to prove that there are people on here that are simply upset with me because of how there relations with me did not go as planed so they are using this outlet in an attempt to smear my name. Although Xen Studio is no longer in business it is not because I am trying to hide anything and there are dozens of happy clients that have amazing photos and they have nothing but good things to say about me.

    They both do drugs and don't pay bills.
    Been evicted many times in Grand Blanc, Burton, Davison.
    Every single place that they've lived, they've been evicted.
    Look it up on the web; 67th District Court. she has quite the number of court cases. Never shows up, always loses.
    I personally would not trust either one with anything, ever again.
    I am currently paying her Student Loan payment, as I an the cosigner, and she quit school and never paid a dime.
    Disgusting people

    The post by ConcernedinTexas is the same Samantha Lerner that these complaints are about.
    She moved to Texas, couldn't make it after a month or so, and is now back in the Flint/Grand Blanc area.
    Again, do not give this girl any money, you will regret it later.

    Is anyone still active in trying to sue this cold-hearted woman and man? I'd like to get on board, my family lives in MI and I'll dedicate the time to nail them. Please reply to this post if you've had any contact with Sam Lerner or Nathan Boisclair, they withheld my pictures, charged me over 5K for my wedding 'album' and never sent them to me. I'll spend the next 5 years of my life finding these two and getting everyone on this complaint board their hard-earned money back and ensure these two see their day in court for what they are doing to people. Say what you will, but both of them deserve to be behind bars! -Xen Hater!

    Hello! I also was scammed majorly by her and I have a lawyer. I didn't realize the scope of what she is doing and I really want to be able to get in contact with some of you so we can have a class action against this ### and put her smug ### in jail where she belongs - for fraud. How can I get in touch with the people on this thread???
