Welcome to your dream portraits

I’m so glad you stopped by! I’m Lisa!
I’m a professional photographer, blessed to call beautiful Southwest Florida home, and proudly offer the ultimate luxury newborn portrait experience right in my clients’ homes, in Cape Coral, and around Charlotte, Manatee, Sarasota, and DeSoto Counties. Since my signature newborn session conveniently takes place in your home, you can rest easy knowing you’ll have my team on site on session day, taking care of every detail, bringing you peace of mind and comfort during the session. No need to take your brand new baby and even siblings out of the home for professional, breathtaking portraits. While we’re able to set up for studio photos of all kinds in your home, you can also select various outdoor locations, allowing limitless options for your maternity, newborn, and family photography needs.

What makes my studio different

Whether you’re in Charlotte county, looking for a Parrish Newborn Photographer, or something in between, I’ve got you covered. You may have assumed that you only have the option of a lifestyle newborn session done in your home, and while there are many talented local photographers who do just that, I specialize in fully posed to perfection and meticulously planned fine art portraits. Yes, without you having to leave the house.

In addition to offering the convenience of home sessions, you can expect a classic full-service photography experience,  beginning with a quick consultation, an in-home planning and design appointment where things like hair & makeup artist services can be booked, and wardrobe & style preferences can be planned. Newborn Sessions are baby led, and not timed. And since I only book 1 client a day, you’ll never feel rushed. After the portrait session, you’ll have a chance to view your completed gallery and select the photos that will be printed (that very day if you want!)

From our first interaction, I cover every detail to make sure you get the best portrait experience possible.

Fancy and Fine Art

You can choose from several beautiful options for your finished portraits, from expertly hand-crafted heirloom albums to wall art, with favorites being traditional canvas, or sleek metal prints for the modern home. And of course, everyone loves the versatility of a beautiful keepsake box of matted prints. Your selection can be fully customized.

    Lisa was a pleasure to work with . She was easy going, flexible, and her work is marvelous. She captured some amazing photos of my newborn, and we've gone on to use her multiple times since then! She comes highly recommended

  • Kaila

    I stepped out of my comfort zone and wanted to capture a moment before my twins were born. I met a wonderful person, a professional photographer, and now friend! Thank you Lisa & Sweet Baby Bliss

  • Jocelyn & Steve

    During my son's photo shoot, I was impressed by how quickly she was able to soothe my baby. My husband and I didn't have to do anything except relax on our couch while she did her thing. We were so comfortable, I practically fell asleep. The end result was amazing, and I tear up everytime I pickup the beautiful album we purchased, and could stare for hours at the huge canvas we selected of our new little family. We highly recommend Lisa for her professionalism, her amazing customer service, and beautiful quality products she offers. 

  • Eleni

    We've used Lisa on several occasions and she always does an amazing job retouching my baby's eczema so we have these beautiful memories without the reminder of how difficult his care has been

  • Vanessa

    Lisa did a phenomenal job for both our fresh 48 and Newborn shoot! She was able to calm my fussy newborn quickly, and did an awesome job swaddling her. I am very pleased with the outcome of our photos and will be using her again. She made my vision a reality and I definitely recommend

  • Ashley

    So, I’m one of those wild moms that went ahead and had 2 babies, just over a year apart in 2020 & 2021. Last year it was hard to find a newborn photographer and everything felt rushed and last minute. We didn’t get the experience we were after, and we drove over 40 minutes to get to the photoshoot which was super stressful at that time. This time around, I started planning right after finding we were expecting again. Click here for Ashley's full review on Google

  • Meghan

    I had the best experience working with Sweet Baby Bliss Portraits. Lisa went above beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy for the whole duration of our shoot. She stayed in great communication with me after on the progress of my photos and made sure I was happy with the outcome. She got the sweetest photos of our family and I couldn’t be happier. She truly has the magic touch!

  • Harish

    Our decision on choosing Lisa Bigness as the photographer for our newborn was perfect. Lisa is not just an amazing photographer but also a great person. Being a mother herself for a wonderful little girl, Lisa knows exactly how to handle/take care of the newborns. One of the best things we like in her work is her in-house session. It was so easy for us to take care of the baby in our house while she was working on capturing the great moments of our baby. Thank you so much Lisa for the precious memories you have left in our babies life!! We really look forward working with you in the future!

  • Sallie

    Lisa took her time and was very patient with Ryleigh, assisted with positioning, feeds, helped me observe nonverbal ques and even taught me some breast feeding hacks I hadn’t learned with my first. She definitely went above and beyond beyond to make sure everyone was comfortable and that the environment was calm and warm. I seriously can’t thank her enough for the beautiful images she was able to capture. I definitely recommend her over and over

  • Kayla

    Lisa is beyond amazing!! She was soooo patient with my twins who could be a handful at times. The quality of her pictures are nothing short of amazing as well!! HIGHLY recommend her for and of your children's photos!!

  • Alicia

    We were blown away by Lisa’s photography talent. She was able to capture some precious moments that we will have forever. Her passion shines through and she has a very patient demeanor. We can’t wait to work with her again!

  • Laura

    Lisa was not only an absolutely wonderful photographer to work with as she was extremely kind and gentle with our baby girl, but these pictures were even more beautiful than I could’ve imagined! Our family is so happy to have pictures we can cherish forever.
