Goodbye Melissa Reid Photography

Hello to She’s In Focus

A new name and logo that supports my dedication to empowering women to embrace and prioritise themselves. Say hello to She’s In Focus – where nurturing and uplifting women come together to make a supportive and safe community.


Why change your name you may be saying?

The choice of "She's In Focus" holds an important meaning for me. While being entirely based around photography, i have realised that what i do during my shoots involves more than just photography. I nurture woman, uplift them and I’m constantly reminding them of how beautiful and strong they really are. I have come to understand we are surrounded by women with low self esteem and low confidence, so my business is evolving to encompass a broader mission: nurturing and championing women's well-being by putting she, her, I, me back In Focus.

Are you allowing yourself to be in Focus in your own life?

This question lies at the heart of She’s In Focus. It's a reminder to prioritise self-love and care—to fill our own buckets before tending to others'.

Too often, women prioritise others before themselves, neglecting their own needs in the process. She's In Focus seeks to challenge this pattern by encouraging women to place themselves front and center in their own lives.

The symbolism behind my logo:

The ring or circle serves a dual purpose. Firstly, it embodies the essence of a camera lens, symbolising the basis of my photography business. Secondly, it represents the supportive community surrounding us, that can support us in our growth. It isn’t closed completely, because we all need to allow others in to help and support us at times.


"She's" encompasses every woman — her, she, you, me - celebrating the collective strength and resilience of women everywhere.

In Focus

"In Focus" – represents my commitment to photography and the art of capturing individuals at their best while being my sole focus. But i want you to be In Focus, by being the focus of your life.

She's In Focus

With She's In Focus, my aim is to – empower women to embrace self-focus, self-care, and self-love as essential parts of fulfilling your life.
