Let’s capture your body in all its glowing glory.

When you’re eight months pregnant, your body is a divine definition of nurture, love, and the magic of new life. It’s also the perfect time to document this magical time in your life with a maternity photography session in our Sydney studio.
The last month of your pregnancy is when you’re brimming with excitement and full of anticipation about meeting the newest member of your family. Our maternity photography sessions are soft yet strong, empowering for both mother and child, and a treasured keepsake of this beautiful moment in your journey to parenthood.


“I absolutely loved my maternity session with Lion + Cub Photography. Nikki made me feel so at ease, knew exactly how to pose me and flatter my burgeoning shapes and I am thrilled with the results. I now have images that portray this incredible time as a woman. My husband was also in a few shots, which intimately portrays our last month as a couple without children.” 
“Thank you for the pregnancy photos, I am really glad that we captured that special moment in time so gracefully! It was such a wonderful thing to do just before giving birth for the first time. I absolutely love the photos and can’t believe how fantastic you made me look! Can’t wait to hang some in the baby’s room and put the gorgeous silhouette one of me up in the bedroom! Thanks so much!”
“Pregnant women are simply amazing to photograph! This is the time to capture an artistic, emotive and glamorous portrait. For maternity photos I recommend indoor studio portraiture with dramatic lighting. Around 32-26 weeks is generally the optimal time to be photographed. You may like to add another layer of meaning through sentimental fabric, props or jewellery. ”

  • Outdoor sessions look best around sunset, in water, in nature and in the forest.
  • Fabric can be used to drape around you and to create movement.
  • Lace gowns, boy-leg shorts, crop tops or maternity lingerie work well, and shoes are great for a few shots.
  • Exfoliate your skin and moisturise, consider using body oil for a shimmer on your belly.
