Newborn Photography Sydney

Here at Lion + Cub Photography in Sydney, we specialise in newborn photography. These are taken at our studio in St Peters, in the inner-west of Sydney. It is a precious moment in your family’s life and the time passes so quickly. We freeze tender moments of adoration and document the love, along with the genuine connection between family members and older siblings.

We also know the best times to photograph a newborn are between 7 – 12 days. You may also choose to photograph at 6 weeks.

The Newborn Photography Experience

A 60 minute newborn family photography session is $200 and includes:


  • A pre-shoot planning session either via phone or zoom to help you plan, style and prepare for your family photography.
  • A bonus 30-minute studio maternity session 
  • The photography session – 60 mins at Tortuga Studios in St Peters, Sydney.
  • The reveal session – The big reveal in the studio where you’ll see your beautiful newborn and family images. We’ll help you choose the best artwork to display your family photos.

Before Your Newborn Photos

We’ll chat over the phone to discuss the style of photography you like and plan your perfect newborn portrait session. 

We’ll discuss your home decor and the colours you prefer and use of props, blankets or any sentimental items.

The Newborn Photography Session

Your newborn photos should reflect you and your personalities.  I recommend studio sessions so I can use my posing beanbag so your newborn photo session will take place here at Tortuga Studios in St Peters, Sydney.

If you have a different location in mind, please let us know. You may prefer a lifestyle session in the comfort of your home.

Whatever the location, your newborn photography session will be a natural, peaceful and memorable 60 minutes.
