WHAT DO OTHERS THINK?

The No Babes shoot was one of the first shoots I got to experience. I was under a lot of stress for this. The way Morgane manages to make a connection both before and during the shoot, the humor present and the approachability have ensured that those nerves quickly disappeared. The uncertainty found its way out and my confidence found its way in! An experience that I can recommend to many!

Phora De Schryver

"My photo shoot with No Babes was life-changing. Morgane made me feel comfortable and beautiful. Since then I've been trying out new poses and I dare to show my body, because I now know that it can be seen."

Amber Niang

"My photoshoot was truly empowering and therapeutical, talking to Morgane and her taking my pictures gave me a chance to talk openly about my struggles while being understood. I'm so happy I was able to share my story and to help others that can relate to my struggles. I will never feel alone anymore because the beautiful experience and opportunity No Babes gave me."

THE FACE BEHIND NO BABES

Morgane Gielen (1994) is a Belgium-based lifestyle and fashion photographer. She focuses on creating more inclusiveness and diversity in the fashion industry. 

"By sitting at the source of unrealistic beauty ideals myself, I have seen the impact it has on all of us.  I started doing assignments as a photographer a few years ago and noticed that there was really only one type of model used for shoots. And as soon as I got to know the models on a set a little better, the stories started popping up: about their eating disorder, about how they chewed cotton wool to satisfy their hunger, just to fit that ideal.

 

I saw how it had also given me a gigantic inferiority complex , and I started to investigate this. What would it be like to burst this perfect bubble on social media for the purpose of making people realize that they are not alone with their doubts and thoughts? To make difficult things negotiable and to connect people with each other? That's where the start of No Babes lies."
