The Studio

Mallory Holley Studios behind the scenes

We have a private studio situated on the Mornington Peninsula, open exclusively by appointment.  We have an all female team to ensure that you are comfortable in a relaxing environment.

The rather spacious studio is equipped with a comfy waiting room, kitchen, bathroom, office, toilet, storerooms and change room! Then of course there is plenty of room to shoot including on the permanent seamless backdrop and boudoir scene, and many other backdrops.

Our studio wardrobes are bulging with a massive range of clothing and costumes!  For our glamour, couples, pin-up and burlesque shoots we have a variety of ladies vintage clothing, corsets, latex and lingerie.  Oh and a mermaid costume too!  For our baby and children shoots we have vintage babies clothes, vintage dresses, cute crocheted beanies and costumes including princesses, fairies, firemen, mermaids and more!
