Honour your pregnancy with a stunning portrait by Lifeworks Photography.

  • By Julie Ewing

You only have a small window of opportunity to capture one of the most amazing, memorable, and unique times in a women’s life – pregnancy.  The idea of being able to document a child’s journey even before they are born is incredibly exciting!

Julie, at Lifeworks Photography, loves to creatively photograph these special moments in her indoor or outdoor studios in Northcote, an inner-northern suburb of Melbourne.

You are only pregnant with this child once, so honour this incredible time with a beautiful portrait?

Offering a variety of gorgeous styles at Lifeworks Photography, these are beautifully designed to create unique, timeless pieces of art for your home.  Many of the families we photograph return time and time again as their family grows.

Working out the best time to be photographed

The best time to photograph expectant mothers is between 32-36 weeks when you feel well-rounded, full of energy, and radiating that motherly glow. There is something truly unique and beautiful about a pregnant woman – her glowing skin, luscious hair, and big round belly. It doesn’t get any more beautiful than that.


Our promise – to make you look and feel like the goddess you are!

Specialising in creating flattering, gorgeous, feminine pregnancy photography.

With over 29 years experience, Julie is confident knowing the best angles, lighting, and props to show you at your best.  She often explores new creative ideas.

The ever-expanding Maternity gown wardrobe is available for your use, offering a variety of styles and colours to suit all tastes. Whatever your desire is, whether it be figure-hugging or soft and flouncy, semi-nude or fully nude. You are welcome to bring along items of clothing, accessories etc from home. If you want to incorporate your heritage, culture, or a significant object in your portrait, feel free to discuss your ideas with Julie at any time.


Lets not forget your partner.

Highlighting the mum-to-be by focusing on her belly and her changing body makes for beautiful photography, but Julie understands that it is also a special time for your partner.

There is nothing more sacred than the love between partners, especially when a new life is taking form. We like to include both parents as much as possible, portraying the love between you and for the little one growing inside.

Involve the whole family in your pregnancy/maternity portrait.

Including siblings in your pregnancy/maternity photos is always a lot of fun! It’s a great way to involve the whole family in this special time, and it adds to their excitement as they look forward to meeting their little brother or sister.
