Welcome to BellaShoot

Thanks for visiting!

I’m Marie, a Brisbane based portrait photographer who specializes in maternity, newborn, baby, children and family photography.

As a mother of two myself, I know life can be complicated and move incredibly fast. Moments just slip away, and before the blink of an eye, your baby becomes a grown up!

That’s why I love photographing families and children so much… it’s an opportunity to slow things down and savor up all the memories before they’re gone.

My ultimate goal is for you to view me as a long term partner, an enabler, someone who can help you document your life journey with gorgeous images and capture all those precious moments for you to revisit and enjoy for years to come!

What we offer

We run both outdoor portrait sessions in the Brisbane Region, as well as in-studio photoshoots in our home-based studio located in Carina, Eastern Brisbane.

We can also come to you and do a more of a lifestyle type of shoot in the comfort of your own home.

Our starting packages include the photo session itself and digital collections of hi-res images (JPG/TIFF files in USB).

In addition, our goal is to provide our clients with a start-to-finish hassle-free experience, so we’ve partnered up with professional photo labs and other suppliers to offer a broad range of high quality products, including prints, photobooks, frames, canvases, and more.

Our style

We want our images to strike you as simple, delicate, pure…  from the session concept design to the editing style and finished product, we hope to showcase these elements as a coherent unity across all of our work.

We chase for candid shots and genuine expressions; the strength of the mother-child bond, the vastness of a baby’s smile, the innocence in a child’s eyes.

Our purpose is to create beautiful, powerful images that can draw you in, that evoke emotions of happiness and nostalgia… images that bring you back to this moment of your life and fill your heart with joy.

How we work

We’ll strive to tailor a memorable experience, one which is personal and meaningful to YOU.

It all begins with a pre-session consultation, where you explain to us what is it that you’re after and we explain to you how it all works.

We’ll then spend a great deal of time PLANNING the shoot. From location and backgrounds selection, to lighting style, outfits choice, accessories and props, colour schemes, posing preference, etc, we’ll make sure we leave no detail to chance.

At the session itself, our approach is relaxed, warm, and down-to-earth. We want to connect, put everyone at ease, and make sure that you have an enjoyable experience and have fun!

After the shoot, we want to listen to your views and thoughts during the editing and post-production. We believe this involvement translates into a greater sense of reward for our clients at the end of their photographic experience.

What our clients are saying



We’ve had maternity and newborn sessions, and I wholeheartedly recommend them. Marie was patient and professional, and made us feel completely relaxed throughout the shoots. She was absolutely amazing with our baby boy, using her magic touch to keep him calm throughout the entire shoot.
