Maternity, Newborn, Family & Sitter Photographer serving Appin, Wollongong & Greater Sydney.

Welcome to

EllaEssi Photography - Sydney Newborn Photography

Hi there beautiful Mumma. I’m Maria, the lady behind the lens and Queen baby whisperer at EllaEssi Photography, Sydney newborn photography.

I fell in love with newborn photography soon after my own beautiful baby girls arrived.

Right before my eyes, my babies grew so quickly. And I worried I’d forget their tiny precious features, their beautiful new baby scent, and their exquisite newborn perfection.

I wanted to remember every amazing moment of those early days.

For always.

My girls’ newborn photos are a cherished reminder of those fleeting early days so I’m passionate about creating those same treasured memories for you and your baby.

My days are filled with photographing gorgeous new babies, just like your little one, in my Sydney newborn photography studio.

Babies are such a blessing and it’s truly my honour to create timeless keepsakes for parents and families.

My newborn sessions are relaxed and focus on posing your baby to capture their tiny details, their squashiness, and tender moments of love and connection between you, your family, and your newborn baby.

I can’t wait to meet you and your beautiful baby and to capture this precious time in your life for you.

So you too will never forget a moment.

See you soon!

Much love,
Maria xx
