hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

I’m super excited to announce the opening of The Studio at East Coast Creative, a new shared space for entrepreneurs and artists in the Philadelphia area! This is a passion project of mine that has been over a year in the making and I’m so glad I can finally share it with you! I remember what it felt like to be growing a brand and a business from my home. I remember the days (years) of using my dining room table as a studio, covering it in white paper, precariously balancing my camera on a stack of books, trying to capture photos of my work. I remember the mess that I’d leave in my wake and how my projects would basically take over our home (the best creativity is messy creativity IMHO). I loved those days, but they were really challenging!  I am so excited that I can share my studio space and resources with other creative locals and let them spread out, get inspired, and capture their awesomeness in super cool ways!

The Studio has been home to me and the East Coast Creative/EC2 Productions team for the past 3 years.  It’s an inspiring and versatile space that has been a HUGE creative asset for our team. We’ve used this space to film, have product shoots, take headshots, build sets, test out project ideas for The Weekender, prep for live TV segments and so much more! I basically think every small biz owner could benefit from using the space, but here are a few uses that came to mind right away…

-All influencers… Spend 1 day a month shooting your social media pics in studio and level up your profile

-Bloggers (DIY, Food, Craft, Mommy) it’s okay to make a mess at the studio – you can shoot step by step process shots and beauties all in one big, open, well-lit space.

-Style Influencers – you provide the fancy clothes we’ll provide the space

-Brand Collabs – take the stress out of paid gigs by using our studio to capture your sponsored photo or video content

-Serviced based creatives – showcase your amazing work with a styled shoot day…hair stylists, makeup artists, lash artists, tattoo artists, masseuses (if you’re a masseuse we should become friends lol I love a good massage!)

-MLM’s gather your team and help them capture your products in action- also get some fabulous new headshots

-Photographers make us your indoor go-to. With equipment, cool furniture, and styling items, our space is the perfect choice for your client shoots.

-Makers/Artisans – Capture your products/handmade goods looking their very best. We provide everything you need to update your online shop (equipment, flat lay options, accessories, backdrops etc)

Ok this list could go on forever, but you get the idea…

Located in the Philly burbs ( hello beautiful Bucks County PA) , The Studio is a 1100 sq ft natural light space with a flexible floor plan that’s able to accommodate a huge range of creative projects. It resides within a cool, old converted cigar factory which adds to the charm. The EC2 team has benefitted so much from the studio and now you can too! We just launched our website  where you can learn more about the space, reserve studio time, and get inspired by the cool ways other creatives have used the space. We’ve got tons of studio equipment, eclectic furniture, and fun props available at no extra charge.  We want to help you and your business be the best it can be!

Follow The Studio at East Coast Creative on Instagram  where we’ll be highlighting amazing artist’s work and sharing exclusive studio promos! Cant’ wait to see what you guys create in our space!
