About me


Hello 🙂 I’m Marie – the heart of Kayana Photography. I have spent the past 8 years specialising in my favourite 2 genres – Maternity and Newborn Portraits so that I can offer you the very best images possible during such a momentous time in your life.

I love everything about maternity and newborn sessions – being witness time and time again to the beauty and power of a woman’s body as she nurtures and grows a new miniature human being is one of the greatest privileges I have (second to being a mum of my own 3 girls!) There are only so many times in your life that you will carry a child within so trust me to freeze this moment in time for you as you prepare to welcome your child into the world.

If you’re not the type to go for Birth Photography (Yes! I would absolutely photograph your birth!),  then I would love to meet your baby in the studio where we can create a chapter of your family history book in timeless and breathtaking newborn images. It is an absolute honor each and every time I am invited to record such a milestone event in someone else’s life and I truly look forward it. Having photographed hundreds of newborns in the past 8 years you can rest assured that I know how to handle and position your baby in the safest most secure way possible.

I was captivated by newborn photography when I had my first daughters images taken and was then largely self taught before seeking out workshops and mentoring with some of the world’s leading international photographers. I continue to attend professional workshops to increase on my knowledge and skill base and am now offering Outdoor Styled Sessions too!

Kayana Photography is situated in Rochedale South, only 20 minutes south of Brisbane and just minutes off the highway. Open by appointment only, I am a purpose built home studio so I am able to accommodate for times and days that are suitable for you. Night appointments are available for maternity sessions only and outdoor styled sessions are held monthly.
