Maternity Photography in the Sunshine Coast

an adventure is about to begin!

Are you looking for natural maternity photography that captures this time  beautifully?  All my sessions are relaxed and focused on capturing gorgeous images inspired by love, light and connection!

Your session will include some beautiful images of you on your own, showcasing your shape during this amazing journey.  Then we will focus on some family images including your partner and children all together, and then I also focus your partner and you as a couple and each of you with your children, so that it ends up being a family session that is focussed on everyone’s excitement about the beautiful baby on the way.  With so many amazing locations to choose from in the Sunshine Coast, we certainly are spoilt for choice, but if you haven’t found somewhere you love you let’s discuss studio or at-home session options aswell.

Your images should reflect your personality and I would love to discuss what you love, feel free to check out my what to wear blog for some location inspiration before your session.

After your session you will receive your images within 7 days, then you can decide how many you love and what you want to do with them.  When I help you design your wall art you are guaranteed to receive perfect looking products with guarantees of up to 75 years.

at-home Lifestyle Sessions

This is a great option if you want to include your home in the background.  This adds an element of sentimentality to your images because you are capturing the home in which your new baby will grow up in.

Your gallery of beautiful images is ready within 7 days of your professional photography session.

Once you have picked your favourite images you have the option of ordering professional quality print products.  I have samples of these in my perth photography studio for you to see in person before you decide if you want to opt for professional printing of your favourite images.

We loved the maternity session we did with Zina. We wanted a beach session and she gave us good advice to organise the session and help us select the best day to do it. She included our daughter in the shoot and the photos are amazing.


Kimberley Usher

The best photography experience ever. Starting with maternity shoot, we went to wrong place then Zina waited for us to arrive at the right place and was so understanding. New born shoot so patient and caring waiting to get the right photograph of our newborn. All our images from maternity shoot and newborn are amazing and forever grateful for Zina for capturing these moments.

Zina has documented the growth of our little family from the beginning. She picked a lovely setting for our pregnancy shoot and was so personable. Even had a selection of gowns for my partner to change into that were flattering and classy. Then we visited her studio for our newborn photos and she was so caring, patient, kind, and fun with our one week old (even after little bub pulled a sneaky poo). Zina met us at a picturesque park that my partner picked out for family photos when bub was 9 months. She patiently took excellent photos the way my partner wanted them and gently suggested poses and angles that she knew would look great. I LOVE the photos from that shoot, and I’m not very comfortable with how I look in photos typically. Recently, Zina rushed up to the family farm from another shoot to get the perfect lighting for photos of the entire local family. She took great action shots and once again suggested angles and poses to get the perfect shot for our little fam. Zina le Sueur Photography is our go-to photographer for any family milestone. Hard to trust anyone else after her consistently amazing results. Thank you Zina!

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time for my Maternity session?
The best time (generally) for maternity photography is between 32 and 36 weeks because this is when your bump is showing beautifully, but before that last stretch where you are feeling really tired and a little uncomfortable.  Of course, everyone is different so if you want to book earlier or later, I am happy to follow your lead.  
Where do Maternity Photography sessions take place?
For the styled, slightly more posed images you see on my website it is best to book a session at my studio.

If you love the lifestyle images, then we can book an at-home session at your home or we can book a beautiful outdoor location.  Get in touch and we can discuss the options.

What do Maternity Photography sessions cost?
I have digital packages pricing information on my website here but if you are after something specific and where you want to include prints, please get in touch so I can give you a custom quote based on your needs.
When should I book my Maternity Photography session?
It is best to book your session at least 2 months in advance, but if you have waited a little longer feel free to enquire about availability as I sometimes have a few last minute spots open up due to rescheduling dates.
Do you have dresses I can use?
I have a few lovely dresses which are flattering, comfortable and look great in photos, so feel free to get in touch and see if you’d like to use something from my client wardrobe.
What kinds of payment options do you accept?
I accept cash, eft, eftpos, online checkout, paypal, afterpay, humm and payright.
What do I do if one of my family members is sick on the day of the session?
Please let me know as soon as possible if you or your child are sick so we can reschedule. I will not require an additional deposit or charge a fee for rescheduling under these unavoidable circumstances. In turn, I will inform you if I am ill and need to reschedule the session. I am always extra careful about protecting the babies I get to work with. I sanitize the studio before and after each photo session, wash my hands before and throughout each session, have hand sanitizer available, and thoroughly launder all blankets, swaddles, hats, etc. after each and every session.
