Our photography business had its origins in pamper parties. Long before Studio G was born in 2015, Lisa was working on her own as Pamper and Pose, providing successful makeover and photoshoot parties, mostly in people’s homes.
With the creation of our new business, and our move to studio premises in Hollinwood, we were able to offer parties on a different scale, and could host them in our own premises. Fairies, unicorns, princesses and of course dance all featured in our expanded range. We kept the Pamper and Pose brand alongside Studio G because it had a great reputation, although some customers were telling us that they found two brands a bit confusing.
Fast forward three years – and many amazing parties – and we moved out of our Hollinwood studio and into the lovely space that is Hack Oldham. This has worked really well for us, and we love being in the heart of the Independent Quarter, with good public transport links, and part of the vibrant Hack Oldham community.
But – and it’s a big but for us – flexible as it is Hack Oldham doesn’t lend itself to hosting parties. It’s a co-working facility, and that doesn’t work with fun – but often loud – parties. And we don’t have the pure white walls that we had in our studio which make group shots so much easier.
So after a lot of thought, we’ve decided to call time on hosted parties and our Pamper and Pose brand. The website and Facebook page will be closing down soon, and all enquiries will re-direct to Studio G.
That doesn’t mean we won’t be offering photoshoot parties – far from it! It just means that in future our party comes to you, whether that’s at home or at a venue you’ve booked. We’re still working up the details, but there will be more emphasis on the photography – which after all is why you hire us – and less on make-up and hair-styling. We also still have a big bag full of silly hats, scarves, wigs and glasses to run photobooths at your special event, and our talented choreographer Kaylie is still very much part of our team for dance parties.
So it’s farewell to Pamper and Pose, and hello to Parties from Studio G! To celebrate this change, we’re offering a £20 discount on any party bookings taken between now and the end of January 2019.
