Capturing Life’s Finest Moments One Precious Miracle at a time.

Welcome to Lil’ One Photography


Hi there! My name is Sofiya  and I am the face behind the camera here at Lil’ One Photography. People often ask me how I became interested in photography and the plain and simple truth is this: I fell in love with it. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my husband and our three kids more than life itself. But there’s just something about the feeling I get once the camera is in my hands, harnessing the emotions in front of me, and capturing the most precious moments in my clients’ lives. And it’s been this way since the first time I picked up a camera in my school’s yearbook club. I was that person roaming the halls, posing my friends and taking their photos. So you can imagine how lucky I consider myself to be now, that for a living, I get to take photos of some of the most important milestones in my clients’ lives.
From the time I get to “meet” the child while they’re still in their mother’s belly at the maternity shoot, to the first time I get to look in their eyes and hold their little hand at the newborn shoot, to twelve months later when they’re a full-blown toddler at the first birthday shoot – I’m lucky to be able to form an on-going relationship with my clients and it’s truly an honour to capture these special moments for them.

Photographing newborns is one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done, and to capture that wonderful and special time in a new mom’s life is magical.

  • “Sofiya is absolutely incredible at what she does and I am so happy she captured our maternity and newborn photos. The studio has a very calming environment for baby and her accessories are the absolute cutest! She follows a strict Covid-19 protocol to ensure you and baby are safe. Every surface was sanitized and very clean. She was very professional and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get maternity, newborn and family photos taken. We will cherish these photos for years to come! Thank you so much! – Nadia”
  • "Sofiya is truly the best at what she does! She is incredibly talented and takes great pride in her work. After searching for a newborn (and maternity) photographer, I stumbled upon her on Instagram and was very impressed. She is professional, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. She was able to fit me in quickly before I delivered and as soon as my daughter was 8 days old. I’m still blown away by how amazing the photos turned out. I highly recommend Lil One photography to anyone looking to capture the best memories of their ‘’Lil one’s’’. Thank you again, Sofiya! Jewels, Mark & Ella"

    "We love Sofiya & would highly recommend her for capturing special moments of your newborn baby. We are over the moon with excitement and happiness over our photos. Not only is her work incredibly unique and gorgeous, but she was an absolute gem to work with. She welcomed us into her studio and made the whole experience very special for myself and my family. She really captured how delicate and dainty our baby is and enhanced her features with beautiful floral arrangements, accessories & props. She encouraged us to do family shots which I will treasure for ever and ever! The hardest part about working with Sofiya was narrowing down our photo selection. Every image was pure perfection! She worked with us to select our favourites and we are so in love with how absolutely breathtaking they are."

  • "Sofiya is the BEST!! She did newborn/family photoshoots for my sons. The photos amazing - she captures the most artistic and beautiful shots, and they are truly unique from the work of other photographers that I’ve seen. She is also amazing with babies and kids. My kids fell in love with her after only being in session with her for half an hour. She uses herself and her silliness to get them to do what she needs. They are so excited when they get to see her again. She is also amazing with babies, super patient, and knows how to calm a colicky baby. I would highly highly highly recommend Sofiya for any kind of family/baby photography!! "

  • "We had the privilege of having Sofiya take our daughters newborn photos. She was wonderful to work with and we felt comfortable with her the moment we walked into her studio. Words cannot express how happy we are with her photos and we are so grateful that we choose her to capture such an important milestone in our lives. We cannot wait to have her take our daughters 1st Birthday photos and we will without any reservations refer her to any and all people looking for a photographer."
