2017 has been a huge year for us at Ivy Rose Studio. From humble beginnings back in February, we have gone from strength to strength. As this year is now drawing to a close and the focus is now on Christmas parties and feeling festive, we thought we’d share with you our reflections on the Ivy Rose story so far.
In the time between March and December, we have done over 300 photoshoots, and had the opportunity to meet so many fantastic people. We love the fact that every single one of the women we have photographed for our boudoir and pin-up photoshoots have been completely different and we have had a great time creating images that reflect who they are. Many of our clients arrive for their shoot slightly nervous, but find that a photoshoot is a real confidence boost that makes them feel truly beautiful. For us there is no greater feeling for us than seeing an apprehensive client walk out the door with a huge grin on their face.
Of course it’s not just about boudoir and pin-up shoots, we offer a range of photoshoot styles and apply the same philosophy to each one. Having a photoshoot might be nerve-wracking for some, but it should be a fun and enjoyable experience, and so we aim to make every single one of our clients feel comfortable and at ease straight away. This year we’ve had great fun photographing men, models, families and even pets!
The best part of running a photography studio is our clients. We love getting to know all of our clients and making them look and feel beautiful. Over the time that we have been open, we have received 221 five star reviews, and it is an amazing feeling to see that so many of our lovely clients have had such a great time at our studio. Many of our clients enjoyed their experience so much that they return for beauty treatments on a regular basis. We love having a good catch up and helping our clients get ready, whether it be for a special occasion or just for a night out.
2017 has been a really exciting time for Ivy Rose Studio, and we’ve already got some big things planned for 2018. Next year we will be getting involved with Calendar Girls North West to raise money for the mental health charity Mind. The charity does some great work in the Manchester region and beyond offering advice and support to anyone who needs help with a mental health problem, and we’re really excited to have the opportunity to raise money and awareness for this great cause.
Ivy Rose Studio started as a shared passion between two make-up artists and a photographer. We’re an all female team, made up of two sisters and a friend, and we opened the studio out of a desire to create a workplace that we would enjoy coming to every day, and where we could work together to give clients a great experience. We each have 15 years’ experience in our respective fields, and we’re all passionate about giving our clients a memorable, enjoyable time at our studio. We never rush our work or overbook ourselves, so everybody who walks in the door really does receive the professional star treatment.
We really do love what we do, and we really hope that shines through to our customers. It’s one big girly day every day here at Ivy Rose Studio and we love every minute of it. We’ve had a really fantastic first year, and we’re hoping that next year will be even more positive. We’re really grateful for all our lovely clients who have made this possible, and we’ve loved having each and every one of you at our studio. Merry Christmas and a happy new year from all of us at Ivy Rose.
