The studio space

Our studio space in St Peters has a space to use traditional lighting with studio backgrounds and a second section that is light and airy and a bit boho. The styling and colour palette is organic and textural, making use of beautiful natural light, our boho props and white shag rug, our luxurious textile collection and whatever you bring with you on the day.
Your collection of images will contain moments that are emotive, artistic, tear-jerking, funny, bursting with personality, and above all else, they will tell the unique story of you and your family. No formulas, gimmicks or uncomfortable posing. Collections usually have 50+ images.

“With over 20 years of experience in photographic portraiture, I’ve learnt that my talent lies in soulful, imagery that tells a story, your story. I have always found it easy to connect with people, and knowing that I can capture a moment of their lives forever is all the inspiration I need to do what I do with love and gratitude. Having two gorgeous boys of my own, I also know how to best evoke kids and babies emotive and playful sides, and, I adore documenting families and their love for one another.”

What Dad's are saying!

Nikki is a wonderful photographer with a beautiful eye, warm and patient manner, a great ability to connect and engage small kids in a shoot and manage parents! She really listened to what we wanted in terms of look and feel and was able to work around our schedules. Nikki was also great at suggesting different product options that would work well for our needs, budget and look. She gave great tips to me as a pregnant mumma about what would photograph well and what I feel comfortable with. We had tonnes of fun i. Her best studio and then also welcomed her into our home for a lifestyle shoot. Thrilled with the outcome!
After reaching out to a few different family and baby photographers in inner west we decided to go with Lion & Cub photography without hesitation. She was the most responsive, professional photographer we ever spoke to, and we really LOVED her outdoor photo shoot style using lots of golden sunlight while ensuring family members including young babies look comfortable, natural and happy. Our photos turned out amazing and everyone praised how natural and unique they looked. I was so happy with Nikki particularly with her approach in making sure she completely understands what we wanted and how we wanted from the photo shoot, and tried to capture those requirements as much as possible. Thank you Nikki, your work is absolutely beautiful x
Nikki was absolutely amazing throughout the whole experience. She thought of things that I would never have - including organising for someone who was great with children to be at the family photoshoot to entertain our 3 year old whilst we did some of the single photos with our baby. The photographs are such great quality and the editing and review process was seamless. Everyone comments on the photos when they walk in to our living room and I have recommended Nikki to lots of our friends. We would definitely engage Nikki to do future photography sessions.
