You are brilliant at making clients feel relaxed, how do you do that?
I think being open and chatty usually works pretty well. I am naturally curious and interested in people. So I will probably ask quite a few questions (do my homework and find out what makes you tick from your questionnaire) lark around a bit ...and hopefully if you are not laughing along you might be laughing at me!
What do you love about working for Hey Saturday?
Doing what I love - (taking portraits of people outside, meeting new people, being out and about, being creative) and helping people find love!
Who would your be dream client and why?
Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) - Well apart from them being a riot ...they always seem to be looking for love (in the series) so I'm sure I could give then a helping hand by giving them some kick-ass dating photos
What's your top dating tip?
Yes it’s a cliche but be yourself. Don’t get too serious / nervous about the actual date(s). You might not meet the person you were hoping to straightaway so relax and have make sure you some fun… And don’t agonise about a date not going the right way. You will know when the right person comes along and you won’t be thinking about having to play it too cool etc because it will just feel right!
Currently obsessed with:
- Reading (and sleeping!) as I can’t get enough of either with a 20 month old
- Karl Ove Knausgaard (My Struggle series)
- and anything by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
Playing on repeat on my iPod:
I enjoy discovering new bands on Spotify… it’s usually a mix of Radio 6 type stuff & the Blues, at the moment it's Mr Sanchez
At my happiest when:
I’m spending time with my son & family
I’m taking pictures
I'm doing something creative
I'm at a music festival (and it's sunny!)
Fave style icon:
I love people taking risks with their looks and I love fashion and pouring over Vogue / Another Magazine / ID etc (esp for the photography) however I tend to be very casual especially since becoming a mum and just love the fact that I don’t have to have an office job where I have to dress up every day and look super smart.
Most into wearing:
High-waisted jeans, my green trainers and a Dennis the Menace jumper!
St John vanilla doughnuts & iberico ham (but not together - that would be gross!)
Saturday nights are for:
Eating take away pizza, a good Rioja and a Netflix series
