Pets Photography Sydney

Here at Lion + Cub Photography in Sydney, we specialise in pet photography. Because we understand the importance of memory-filled family photos with your pets in them.

We photograph moments in the present so you and your pets and children can cherish them in the future. We freeze tender moments of laughter, document the love, and the genuine connection between your pets and family members.

Tortuga Studios in St Peter’s, Sydney is a pet-friendly space and we can create amazing portraits indoors.

We also know the best locations around Sydney for your outdoor pet photography session.

Our outdoors sessions are perfect for older children and pets who love to explore and connect with nature.

The Pet Photography Experience

A 60 minute 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 pet photography.
  • The photography session – 60 mins on location or at Tortuga Studios in St Peters, Sydney.
  • The reveal session – The big reveal in the studio where you’ll see your beautiful pet images. We’ll help you choose the best artwork to display your pet photos.

Before Your Pet Photos

We’ll chat over the phone to discuss what your ultimate priorities are and plan your perfect pet portrait session. We’ll chat about your favourite outdoor locations in Sydney for your pet photos, or whether you’d prefer a studio session.

We’ll chat about your pets so I know what they like, and what makes them respond. And I’ll reveal my tricks for making you relax and have fun during your pet photos.

The Pet Photography Session

Your pet photos should reflect you and your personalities. So we have a few favourite outdoor locations in Sydney for you to choose from. If a studio session is more your style, your family photo session can take place here at Tortuga Studios in St Peters.

If you have a different location in mind, please let us know. You might have a favourite beach, and AirBNB or prefer a lifestyle session in the comfort of your home.

Whatever the location, your family photography session will be a natural, fun-filled and enjoyable 60 minutes.
