Welcome to 2018! We’re so excited about what this year will bring. We’re making some change as you can see by this sparkling new website. Our focus will continue to remain on creating beautiful, sensual, feminine boudoir and couple photography in Newcastle, but the way we are doing it is going to be a little different. The first thing to mention is that we have left the studio in Lambton. If you know me then you’ll know that I’m a bit restless and impulsive and I dislike being tied down. I found having the responsibility of a commercial lease very restrictive both personally and creatively. I really like the challenge and variety of shooting in exciting new locations. So this year, rather than being stuck in one place I will be looking at doing sessions in client’s homes and in a variety of venues and locations. It means I can extend our reach beyond Newcastle and offer our services to clients who wouldn’t have been able to make the trip to our studio. I’ll be announcing special events every 4-6 weeks each time in a new location with a limited number of photoshoots available. If you’d like to hear about these events as they’re announced please subscribe to our newsletter here
The other thing you may have noticed about the new website is our focus on encouraging self-esteem and body positivity. After photographing many different women and girls over the past few years we have seen so much positivity come from these sessions and we wish to expand on that further. I don’t claim to be any type of expert in this area, I certainly don’t have any qualifications as a psychologist, life-coach or self-help guru, but I do have plenty of personal experience battling low self-esteem and using photography as a tool to build my own confidence. I know that we can help change a woman’s attitude towards herself by shifting her perspective. Through our photography we can help her see herself in a new light and offer encouragement and advice to carry that through to her everyday life. Read more about our confidence building shoots here.
As part of our commitment to promoting self love and acceptance I’ll periodically be offering free shoots to some wonderful deserving women. For more information about how and when these shoots will take place, check out our freebies page here.
In the meantime I invite you to take a good look around our lovely new site. I hope you’ll find some good info and enjoy the beautiful images! And if you have any comments or feedback for us, we’d love to hear from you anytime.
Love from Michelle and the Miss Monroe team xx
