Who Is Tess Maree?

Hello & thanks for wandering by my Website! It’s taken me a while to develop and launch this monster as it truly is a personal labor of love for all things I enjoy creatively; Photography, styling, design, travelling, learning and growing. So, without further ado, welcome to That Little Studio Co. A little studio with BIG dreams!

I’m an Australian Lifestyle Photographer now slow-living & consciously travelling through stunning New Zealand while helping budding start-ups and aspiring entrepreneurs turn their visions into reality with meaningful photography for their personal brand, products & services.

But how did I come to be here you may ask?… At 14 my Dad was diagnosed with Dementia and after witnessing how fragile & precious memories are, the experience inspired me to pick up my first camera. As a solo traveller for more than 10 years, I threw myself into the skill of seeing through the lens then, in 2016 I founded That Little Studio Co to represent myself as a Lifestyle Photographer to help others build their visual visions.

I felt compelled by the state of the environment and our stressful lifestyles to think about one’s impact and make more meaningful connections while on the road. So, in 2019 I moved to New Zealand indefinitely to experience the full scope this stunning country has to offer by engaging within the communities, living with the locals, connecting with the culture & fully appreciating all the beauty in between, slowly & patiently.

Watch this space for my slow-travel experiences throughout New Zealand.
