Maternity Photography Sydney

We'll capture your body in all its beauty.

At eight months pregnant, a mother-to-be’s shape is the ultimate balance of form and fluidity, so it is the perfect time to capture this seminal time in your life with a pregnancy photoshoot.

Brimming with the anticipation born of meeting the newest member of your family, these shoots are soft yet strong, empowering of both mother and child, and a unique marker in history. 


“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. ”
