When is the best time to schedule a newborn session?
The ideal time to capture those serene and sleepy poses of your newborn is between 7 and 14 days old. During this period, babies are more likely to be flexible and have a natural inclination to curl up, allowing us to create those cherished images that highlight their delicacy. It’s recommended to schedule your newborn session in advance, ideally when booking your maternity session, to ensure availability during this optimal timeframe.
How do you schedule newborn sessions when we don’t know when the baby will arrive?
I understand that the arrival of your baby is an exciting and unpredictable event. That’s why I have a flexible scheduling process that accommodates the uncertainty of due dates. When you book your newborn session, we will initially determine a tentative session date based on your baby’s due date. Once your baby is born, I kindly ask that you contact me as soon as possible to reschedule the session. It is recommended to schedule the session between 7-14 days of your baby’s life, as this timeframe is ideal for capturing the sleepy and curled-up poses that beautifully showcase the newness of your little one.
Can I include family members in the newborn photoshoot?
Absolutely! Including parents, siblings, and even pets in the newborn photoshoot is a beautiful way to celebrate the arrival of your little one and document the unique bond that exists within your family. We can discuss the details and plan accordingly to ensure everyone feels comfortable and involved.
My baby is 4 weeks older, can I still have newborn pictures taken of my baby?
Yes! I understand that circumstances may vary, and it’s possible to schedule a lifestyle session for slightly older newborns. We can still create beautiful and cherished portraits of your little one. It’s important to note that as your baby gets older, they may be more alert and less likely to fall into the deep sleepy poses. However, we can focus on capturing their unique personality, adorable expressions, and the precious bond between you and your baby. By adapting our approach and utilizing creative techniques, we can create timeless images that celebrate this special phase in your baby’s journey. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to discuss your specific situation. I will be very happy to assist you.
What should my newborn wear for the photoshoot?
Newborns are typically photographed in their natural state, showcasing their delicate features. As part of the newborn experience, I have a collection of carefully selected props and accessories to enhance the aesthetic of the session. From soft white blankets and wraps to adorable hats and headbands, I provide a variety of options for you to choose from. We can discuss wardrobe options and styling during the planning process.
Where does the newborn session take place?
The newborn session can take place in my professional photography studio, located in Palm Harbor, or in the comfort of your own home. Both options have their advantages, and we can discuss which location aligns best with your preferences and vision.
How long does a newborn photoshoot typically last?
A newborn photoshoot can last anywhere from 1 to 2 hours, allowing ample time for feeding, soothing, and capturing those precious moments. The session duration may vary depending on any additional factors we consider during the planning process.
How many photos will I receive from the newborn session?
Following the session, you can expect to receive a curated selection of at least 30 images. These images will be carefully chosen to ensure a collection of beautiful and artistic portraits that truly capture the essence and joy of your newborn.
When will I receive the edited photos?
The editing process typically takes around 3-4 weeks, as each image is carefully enhanced and retouched.

CLIENT LOVE NOTES
Lilia was AMAZING to work with! From the very beginning, she was prompt in communication, easy to schedule with, very clear in her directions/style book, and most of all I loved that she truly cares about her clients! You can tell that her job brings her joy and that she does it because she loves serving families and helping them have beautiful memories. Her style book helped me prepare for what to expect at the shoot – I could tell she put a lot of work into it. Her client wardrobe is super cool too – she let me borrow this flattering white dress and I ended up loving the way it looked in the photos. Her studio is clean, professional, and she even had my favorite lactation cookies available with some bottled water. She was also gentle and sweet with my newborn which made me feel comfortable. Overall we had the best experience with Lilia and the photos she took turned out even better than I expected!! I have already told her that I’m booking again in the future because I’m so happy with the work she does! Thank you Lilia!
