About Marie

I have been photographing babies and families since 2013.

I established my photography business, Apolonia Photographie, after having my first son back in 2012. Since then, I have built a boutique photography studio located in the Western Sydney suburb of Lidcombe. I am excited about growth and learning and have I applied this passion to newborn, baby, and maternity photography for many years and have learned from the best in the industry.

Since its inception, my business has grown into photographing toddlers, children,
families, and corporate clients in my photography studios located in Lidcombe, Castle Hill, Petersham, and outdoor locations.

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful. For beauty is God's handwriting. - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Baby Lifestyle Photography Sessions


Lifestyle newborn photography sessions are perfect for those parents and families wanting a more natural approach to their photographs. These are perfect for babies under 1 month of age. I focus on the connection between the families and their newborn babies. Babies are photographed asleep or awake. These sessions typically do not involve props. These sessions typically run for 1 to 1.5 hours.


My Lifestyle photography sessions are held in Castle Hill Pop-Up Studio or in the comfort of your home. Please be sure to subscribe to our mailing list to receive information on these dates.

Styles For Your Newborn Photoshoot In Sydney

Each baby photography session is unique. Posed newborn photography sessions are perfect for those wanting props with their photographs, and Lifestyle newborn sessions which focus more on connection with the family and involves no props as such.

When a client contacts me, I take the time to understand what it is that you are after.

Are you after those curly newborn photos which involves babies being wrapped up and posed sleeping in props, or are you after photographs which are classic, timeless and all about the family?

These are questions that I ask to understand what it is that is important to you and your family. I specialise in baby photos in Sydney, and would love to capture these special moments for you.

Posed Newborn Photography Sessions

Posed newborn photography sessions are highly recommended for babies under the 12 days of age. Babies at this age, will pose and curl better as they are freshly out of the womb. Babies under the 12 days of age generally sleep for longer periods.

My posed newborn session includes parents, and sibling shots and on requests grandparents. These sessions typically go for 2 to 3 hours to allow time for feeding, changing props and resettling babies after prop changes.

When to book your baby photography in Sydney?

I have a limited amount of bookings per month. I highly recommend clients book as early as possible in the earlier parts of their pregnancy to secure a spot in my diary.

I typically am booked out 3 months in advance.

Newborn Safety

Your baby's health and safety is important to me. It is the reason why I am up to date with my vaccinations. Babies will come to the studio with little immunity. It is important that I help protect these tiny babies.

I have spent 8 years training and studying newborn photography from some of the best in the country and internationally. Safety is a big aspect of this.

I am supportive of posing babies in a more natural approach. I discuss this with prospective clients prior to booking in.

A clean hygiene is critical, I ensure to sanitize prior to touching the baby and wear a mask during sessions.

Am I the right newborn photographer for you?

I encourage all my prospective clients to do their research when booking a newborn photographer to ensure they are the right fit for their families.

Newborn photographers have different styles to their work. It is important to look through their galleries and to ensure they understand pricing structures.

My style to newborn photography is a minimalist approach. I want to capture the essence of your newborn baby.


Posed newborn sessions attract a talent fee of $200.

Lifestyle newborn sessions in the studio attract a talent fee of $150.

Home lifestyle newborn session attract a talent fee of $180.

Print packages with or digital file packages are purchased on top.

Client Testimonial

Marie was fantastic!! I have a strong willed 2yr old and a newborn and Marie managed to get them both on board and create not only one perfect shot but many. I strongly recommend to go to Marie for all your photography needs. The way the final products are presented are beautiful and very professional ( I'm a sucker for anything wrapped in tissue paper). The images are given on a lovely wooden keepsake USB. I can't speak highly enough of our experience!
