Goddess parties – Mel Wells The Goddess Revolution
As you know I spend much of my time photographing little children and tiny babies in family shoots but it’s always fun to photograph grown ups and take on other types of work. In this case photographing an event for a group of gorgeous women.
I know Mel Wells, Author of the fabulous book The Goddess Revolution, via a couple of business groups and in January I took part in one of her Goddess Retreats in beautiful Bali (which will be the subject of another blog – so many gorgeous photos to share !!). So it was lovely to see her and some of the other girls that were on the retreat at one of her Goddess Parties a few weeks ago.
Mel’s book The Goddess Revolution is all about getting out of the diet mentality and improving your relationship with food and your feelings towards your body. It covers emotional eating, binge eating, working on self-love, mindful eating and tackling the emotions that cause certain behaviour patterns around food. It’s about a way of changing your relationship with food and creating a new lifestyle that creates freedom around food without being constantly on a diet or obsessed with the number on the scales.
The Goddess parties are a way to get women together, meeting in gorgeous locations with fabulous heathy food to swop stories and spend a bit of time together. It’s a chance to meet Mel in person and get a hug – she’s all about the fabulous hugs – and get a signed copy of the book.
This party was at a lovely cafe called The Garden in Hale and lots of Goddesses came along to enjoy some green juice and fizz and each other’s company. Here are just a few shots to give you flavour of the atmosphere.
The next Goddess Party is at Tanya’s in Chelsea on Sunday 21st May.
