Why choose Lion & Cub?

A photo captures a moment in time, a moment that stops your heart, makes you smile or takes you by surprise. The expression that almost escaped, raucous laughter, a daydream, contemplation or pure cheekiness… and white, double exposed, on an angle, the meaning is the same.

At Lion & Cub, our photography has developed over time. With the artist’s eye for seeing the moment, the professional’s years of experience and a knack of creating an environment that puts you at ease and lets the moment emerge – we’re experts at what we do.

Family photos, wedding albums, maternity and newborn portraits, as well as headshots, personal branding and content creation, Lion & Cub is about people, capturing the moments that matter to you and helping to display those moments so they shine. We look forward to hearing from you.
