Hello & thanks for wandering by! That Little Studio Co. is a little studio with BIG dreams & Tess Maree (that’s me) is the Visual Storyteller behind the lens. 

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. In my younger years, I yearned to be amongst the workforce to learn hands on skills. I have always thrown myself head first into challenges and by doing so gained 15 years’ experience within various corporate admin & operations roles within Publishing, Advertising & even The Australian Defence Force.

In 2013, I craved a more creative work-life balance and quit climbing the corporate ladder to pursue and develop my artistic talents and enrolled in a Diploma of Photography. I never enjoyed learning like I enjoyed creative learning! And I have finally found my true passion & love for learning ever since! 

Since graduating, I have experimented in various genres; events, weddings, portraits, boudoir but I always come back to three things that light my fire… travel, food & interiors.

In 2016, I founded That Little Studio Co to represent myself as a Lifestyle & Travel Photographer specialising in my passions and have been building a steady list of clients while developing my skills not only as a Lifestyle Photographer but also Styling & Graphic Design. 

I am currently living the digital nomad lifestyle while wetting my wanderlust appetite travelling the world with camera, pen and paper in hand, racking up sky miles and stories for my new blog while utilising all my skills both corporate and creative.

You can frequently find me in Australia, Bali, New Zealand & other far flung places of this beautiful planet. If you'd like to follow my adventures, I have just launched my travel & lifestyle blog to share my digital nomad adventures to inspire you to pursue your creative dreams, however big or small. 

I'm always looking for new creative projects, clients, adventures & friends, so feel free to take a wander over to my contact page & say hey!!

How it works...


If you’re interested in working with me for a photography or design project, please send me an email at info@tessmaree.com. Tell me a little bit about yourself, your business and the project you’re working on and what your visual visions and design goals are and where I may be able to help ie. photography &/or design.

It helps to get the ball rolling if you give me a short description of what you are after ie. Photography Project - genre, style, location, timing, quantity of: scenes, products, dishes, rooms etc & how many finished images you require and by what deadlines. Design Project - document type, size, quantity of pages/files, format, style envisioned & deadlines. Sending through some inspiration images also helps with the initial process.

Once I've got an idea of what you require for your project, I can then send you my pricing collections which will outline prices and what is included from quantity of images/files to duration of photoshoot/delivery schedule & terms and conditions.

Once you have decided what pricing collection is best for you, I will send you a booking confirmation with the project details. A 50% deposit is payable by bank transfer to confirm the booking. This is fully refundable, should cancellation occur with at least 72 hours notice. If models are involved or the shoot is for yourself, hair & make up will need to be arranged at your end as my prices are exclusive of hair and makeup.

If your space is filled with natural light, it’s possible I can shoot there to save you further fees such as a studio or creative space hire which incurs an additional cost.

I’m happy to discuss a budget you had in mind for your project & help with what pricing collection may suit best for your requirements and we can work on your vision from there.

Once the booking is confirmed we can start working on the creative brief together to make your vision a reality.

Files & Delivery


Within 48 hours of your shoot, you will receive soft edited images from the day to choose the final image you want. These may not include all photos taken on the day as only the best are selected for you. (I wont be showing images of you with your eyes closed or a funny face, unless thats what you’re after ;) If you need help with the selection process I can help you through this.

Once you have selected the final images you want, I start editing them for you so that all final processed images are retouched to my style & standard. My turnaround time for delivery of your final edited images is within 2 weeks from when you select your images & when the balance is paid in full upon receiving your final edited proof sheet & final invoice.  

All images are provided to you on USB, resized and optimised for Facebook, Instagram and 1 nominated website dimension & as high resolution print ready JPEG files for your printed collateral. You will also have access to all the web optimised images on a shared Dropbox folder.



My standard pricing structure allows you to utilise the images provided for your website, social media, email marketing & in house printing collateral. I’ve kept it nice and simple as these are the usual places my clients want to use their images.

If you would like to reproduce your images in any other way, such as large print format, advertising or publication submissions, further approval & licensing fees will apply. Just give me a call to discuss any further licensing requirements.

Easy peasy!

I endeavour to make my photoshoot & design process super simple to take the stress out and put the fun in, so that you’ll be excited to share your business’ beautiful new images & designs asap!



If you would like to work with me, use any of my images for any purpose or you just wanna say hey,

please send me an email and I'll reply as soon as I'm back from my adventures.
