Hey there! I’m Lilia Pereira, a passionate motherhood photographer with a mission to help families preserve their most incredible moments. In this blog post, I’ll take you on a journey through my life, my photography philosophy, and my deep-rooted commitment to creating timeless memories for moms and families.


I wear many hats: wife to Carlos Barros, mother to two adorable children, Mateus and Julia, and business owner as a photographer. Born and raised in a small town in Brazil, I embarked on an incredible journey in 2014, leaving behind my career as a pharmacist. I lived in Chicago for 1.5 years before making my way to Arizona, where I began my photography journey. Now, I’m located in the charming Palm Harbor, Florida.

My Photography Journey

My journey into the world of photography traces back to my earliest memories. As a little kid, I found myself captivated by the magic of the camera, always eager to pose for each click. It was a simple fascination, but one that would eventually shape my future in profound ways.

At the age of 15, I bought my very first camera, that opened up a whole new world of possibilities. I began capturing everything that caught my eye, but it was the moments spent with my grandmother that held a special place in my heart. I realized that through photography, I could freeze time and immortalize the beauty of fleeting moments.

However, during my first pregnancy, my husband surprised me with a professional camera as a Christmas gift, a gesture that would change my life forever. It was as if he saw a spark in me waiting to be fanned into flames.

Once that camera found its way into my hands, I couldn’t resist the urge to dive deeper into the art of photography. I embarked on a journey of learning, seeking inspiration and guidance from some of the best photography teachers, Amy & Jordan. Their mentorship enriched my knowledge and skills, and I discovered a world of creativity and emotion that I never knew existed.

Today, I find myself here, not only creating cherished memories for my own family but extending my passion to you and yours as well. Photography has become my way of sharing the beauty and emotions that surround us, freezing moments in time so that they may be treasured for generations to come. I’m excited to be on this journey, and I look forward to capturing the magic and memories that make life so remarkable.

The Joy of Motherhood

As a mother of two adorable children, Mateus and Julia, I’ve experienced firsthand the immeasurable joy that motherhood brings. Every moment spent with my family is precious, and this is why I’m so passionate about capturing those moments of love and connection through my photography.

Capturing Unique Family Stories

I specialize in family portraits that reflect the unique personality and spirit of each family I work with. I firmly believe that a photograph is more than just an image; it’s a memory that can transport us back to a specific moment in time. That’s why I pour my heart and soul into every photography session, ensuring that each family’s unique story and connection are beautifully captured.

The Essence of Motherhood Life

My photography sessions are not static. They’re full of movement and laughter, capturing the true essence of your family’s greatest adventure to date: motherhood life! I create a fun and relaxed atmosphere that allows you to savor every moment with your family.

Whom I Want to Help

I’m here to assist busy moms who don’t have time to plan the perfect family photo session. I want to help moms with energetic children get the photos they dream of, even if it means getting everybody to look at the camera. I empower moms who may not feel comfortable in front of the camera by capturing their unique beauty and turning those uncomfortable moments into priceless and timeless memories for their families.

My Mission

My mission is to be the bridge between today’s precious moments and the treasured memories of tomorrow. I’m committed to helping moms and families create unique and beautiful memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. Through the lens of my camera, I seek to tell the story of your love, laughter, and connections, freezing them in time as timeless, visual narratives. My mission is to make these memories tangible, to allow you to revisit them, and to share the beauty of your family’s story with future generations. Together, we create an enduring testament to the power of love, captured one photograph at a time.

Life Purpose

My ultimate goal is to take care of my family, to be present for my kids as much as I can. I want them to remember me as a mom who freezes the best moments in other moms’ lives, creating timeless and unique memories for their future children to cherish forever.

The Gift from Above

In the midst of my life’s journey, I’ve come to realize that my passion for photography is a true gift from above. It’s a divine talent, bestowed upon me by a higher power. I believe that God has entrusted me with the unique ability to freeze time with a simple click of the camera, to capture emotions and connections in the most beautiful and timeless images.

Each photograph I take is a testament to this remarkable gift. I see my role as a photographer not only as an artistic endeavor but also as a divine calling. With every session I undertake, I am guided by an inner purpose to create images that not only reflect the external beauty of families but also the love and connections that make life truly meaningful.

These moments of joy, love, and connection are a testament to the beauty of life and the love that binds families together. It is my mission to preserve and enhance this love in a way that allows you to revisit these memories, share them with your children, and cherish them forever.

As I pick up my camera, I am reminded of the profound responsibility I’ve been entrusted with, and I approach each session with reverence and gratitude. The camera isn’t just a tool; it’s a vessel through which I can share the joy and love that families bring into their lives.

The gift from above has blessed me with the ability to turn moments into timeless treasures, and I am deeply honored to share this gift with you as we create and capture your family’s unique and beautiful memories.

What motivates me on this photography journey?

Every time I embark on a photography session, my heart is filled with excitement and anticipation. As I carefully select and refine each image, something extraordinary happens – I start to smile, and that smile evolves into something much more profound.

What I feel is not merely satisfaction but an overwhelming sensation of love. It’s a love that transcends the boundaries of the photographs themselves and extends into the emotions and connections they represent. It’s a love that mirrors the love that families share with one another.

This deep-seated motivation is what propels me to create art that celebrates and preserves the beauty of life, the bonds between family members, and the moments that matter most. Every photograph I take becomes a vessel for that motivation, a visual piece of the love I seek to share with the world.

I’m deeply committed to the art of motherhood photography, and it’s this motivation that guides me in helping you create timeless and beautiful memories for your family, ones that you’ll treasure for years to come.

I’m thrilled to have you here, and I can’t wait to capture the essence of your unique family story. Together, we’ll create beautiful memories that you’ll cherish forever. Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey through motherhood and photography.
