Let us create memories for you

Sydney photographer specialising in maternity, baby, child, and family portraits

Having a baby is a magical time, particularly for first time mums. Children soon grow up, curious about the fantastic world around them. These wonderous times are so valuable and yet so fleeting in our busy modern lives. Valent Lau beautifully captures these moments using a special style of photography called Beloved. Read on to learn more about Beloved and how we can capture the treasured memories of your loved ones.


About us

Valent Lau Photography is an AIPP Accredited boutique photography studio specialising in pregnancy, baby, child and family photography. In this age of ubiquitous cameras, we believe in creating quality images rather than quantity. We avoid fads and instead create timeless images that truly capture the moment and emotions.

What is Beloved?

Beloved is a style of photography based on capturing real honest moments. It is different from traditional posed photography where you are told to stand and smile. It is different from photojournalism where the subjects are left to their own devices hoping for the best.

It is about helping you elicit memories of your best times together and capturing that on (digital) film. It is about gazing into your soul.

Beloved is great for people who feel uneasy being in front of a camera and want natural looking images.

We recommend you plan your maternity photography for weeks 30-35. Depending on how big you want your tummy to look and differences from person to person, sometimes we can go earlier or later than those dates.
