Hello There


I’m Marie

I’m Marie, the photographer and founder of Very Photique Photography. My new bespoke natural light studio is located in Ivanhoe, Melbourne. I’m all about capturing stunning and priceless photographs.

As a mum to five beautiful children, I genuinely understand the demands of parenthood and how busy life can get. This is why I believe that it’s important to stand still in time and freeze those fleeting moments that can pass us by so quickly. From blooming bellies… to newborn babies… to brand new families… those delicate moments that truly matter…

This is where I step in, as your photographer.

It is my mission to capture stunning photographs of your family so you can proudly display them in your home and remember these moments forever


Light Filled Sanctuary

The Studio

Discover a tranquil oasis of simplicity and elegance in my newly designed studio. Bathed in natural light, the space exudes a calming ambience, enhanced by soft sheer curtains that gently filter the sun’s rays. Drawing inspiration from Mediterranean design, an arch-inspired corner and an evergreen olive tree create a harmonious atmosphere, occasionally featured in our sessions.

Each photo session is individual and customised for each client.

2. Create

On the day of the session, everything is ready and set up when you arrive.

Props, wraps, blankets and accessories (for baby shoots) and even the client dress wardrobe are all available if you like, or we can go for a more simple and minimalist look.

I love to give my clients as much variety as possible and take as many photos as we can fit into the session.

My aim is to provide a completely enjoyable and memorable experience for you and memories to last you a lifetime!


3. Cherish


Typically two weeks after the photoshoot you will be emailed your preview gallery from which you will make your selections.

All packages have been designed to include a variety of high-resolution images and professionally printed photographs.

Additional products can be purchased to beautifully present your photographs.  These include:

    • Wall art – traditional framed, canvas boxed framed and Arch frame
    • Custom-made photo albums
    • Matted prints –  ready to frame

– I can help you create a wall art collection to suit your room, your budget and your style

Client Love


Maree has photographed our family and both our babies over the years. She is incredibly skilled and takes the most beautiful photos. She was so warm and gentle with our little ones and took her time to capture the perfect moments. She made sure we were comfortable and at ease. She has a very extensive collection of props that are in immaculate condition and only add to the magic she creates. We are so grateful to have been put on to Maree! Our portraits will be cherished forever.

Maree has a heart of gold & is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She has taken both my children’s newborn photos & she is honestly a baby whisper! Both slept perfectly through each shoot & the end result is amazing! Don’t hesitate to book with her!
