The 2020 rollercoaster & what we've been up to
I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a tough year, especially for business owners all over the country, but particularly those in Melbourne. Our team has been on the rollercoaster too, there has definitely been some highs but also plenty of lows. Most importantly, we send our thoughts to anyone who has been directly impacted by COVID-19.
Amongst all the change, one amazing high is we have relocated to a new stunning warehouse studio in Sydney. Sticking to what we believe in, making people feel amazing, this space offers the exact type of experience we know a photography shoot should be. A little bit of luxury, plenty of diversity and a modern edge when it's needed. Since reopening our Sydney studio in July, we have been helping people update their business branding, create fresh new portfolios for agencies, and spoil themselves in a boudoir or individual photoshoot. The feedback has been amazing and you can see some of our recent work on our website. "Alise and Treia were divine to work with. They were so understanding, compassionate and gentle with my fear of photo, providing me with a lovely and enjoyable experience. Their professionalism and responsiveness ensured I was well informed about what to expect and what I needed to know, which also helped calm my nerves. Their Newtown studio is stunning - the perfect vibe for my photos. Alise captured my essence so well in her photography. Thank you!" Kimberly Lee, Google Review Sydney August 2020
During the first lock down, we took the time to renovate our Melbourne Studio and spent time improving our website. Lets just say, it ended up being pretty busy. Sadly since March, we have only been allowed to open in Melbourne for two weeks in June. We miss Melbourne dearly. Like the family, friends and clients we have spoken to, we hope to get back to some sort of 'new normal' really soon.
We plan to reopen our refreshed Melbourne studio, as soon as the Government allows and it is logistically possible to freely cross the boarder. We have a waitlist you can join and as soon as we can, we will be back to creating pampering, relaxing photoshoot experiences for our Melburnians too.
Small businesses need your support, so please shop local wherever you can. If you have a photoshoot in mind we'd love to see you in Sydney now or in Melbourne very soon. Take care during this time, Alise, Treia, Tracy & team ALISE BLACK PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDIOS www.aliseblack.com.au
