Welcome to The Studio

Within the heart of Geelong and as part of the Creative Geelong Makers Hub, The Studio is located in the historic Centrepoint Arcade at Shop 17 / 132 Little Malop Street Geelong VIC 3320. The Arcade runs between Little Malop and Ryrie Streets, right behind the Market Square Shopping Centre and next door to the Geelong Advertiser building. You can enter the Arcade via Little Malop or Ryrie Streets.


2 hour metered parking is available on the streets surrounding The Studio, as well as in the Market Square Shopping Centre carpark for longer periods and similar fees. 4 hour metered parking is available across the Yarra Street intersection in Little Malop near Officeworks.

From the Shopping Centre, exit the carpark via the lifts to the ground floor. Travel right, past the bathrooms until you're in the outdoor space and you will see the entrance to Centrepoint Arcade directly across the road. Keep an eye out for my logo and the Creative Geelong Makers Hub logo on signs at the Arcade entrances and on The Studio.

Welcome home

I've designed The Studio to make you feel at home while you're here and I invite you to enjoy the space as much as I do.

  • My client wardrobe for mothers and newborns is at your finger tips along with a private change room and mirrors to style yourself. If you've forgotten something, I've probably got it so please just ask.
  • With an abundance of seating, please take your time to feed your baby (whether you would like this captured in your session or not), change and tend to them as you need. I have facilities to warm bottles if needed.
  • Warm herbal tea or refreshing water is ready when you are. Bathroom facilities are also available in the Arcade.
  • Toddlers are very welcome in The Studio. There is nothing that can be damaged and I'm not worried about them making themselves at home, so please don't you worry either.
  • Prams are welcome to help with carrying your items but if you don't need it, please leave it to help us with space inside The Studio.
  • My only request while in the The Studio is to please remove your shoes and keep food to a minimum to help me to preserve the white floors designed to accentuate the brightness of the space.

If you have any special requests while you're in The Studio, please let me know. I'd love to make you feel at home. I can't wait to welcome you to this beautiful oasis and create a morning of magical moments with your loved ones to treasure forever.



Please note the dropped pin for Melina Takes Photos is slightly misplaced on Google maps. Please follow the signs to the Centrepoint Arcade, right next to the dropped pin. The Studio is located in the centre of the Arcade.

Key locations to look for on Little Malop Street include the barber, Icon by Ben, Bridal House and the Geelong Advertiser.

Please call me at any time on your way to The Studio on 0410 720 082 and I will help direct you.
