HOW ARE YOU FINDING JOY DURING THESE STRANGE TIMES?
This has definitely been a year of growth for me. I’ve been learning to just be thankful and content with everything I have, and to take it easy. In a time like this, we realise that the most important things in life are having your loved ones near and good health. It is a joy to have both.
YOU ARE A MOTHER TO THREE BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN. WHAT LESSONS HAVE YOU LEARNT FROM YOUR CHILDREN?
I’ve learnt to be selfless. It’s not an easy thing to do, at times it’s very hard, but my children make it so worth it. They are my little friends, we laugh and play together and it brings peace to my soul. They make me want to be a better person for them and for this world.
WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION WHEN SHOOTING NEW CONTENT?
I’d say I get inspiration from everything, but it always starts with the brand I’m working with. I try to match their style and aesthetic, whilst adding a touch of my style, children and daily life. Our photos are a real mix of fashion and lifestyle.
HOW DID YOU BECOME INVOLVED IN THE WORLD OF CONTENT CREATION?
When I was little I used to dream of working in fashion and modelling. My sisters and I would sew and model our own clothes, taking photos with our parents camera. As I grew up, I hoped to attend fashion school but never had the funds for it. A few years later I got married (I was only 19 and my husband was 20), we were so young! We spontaneously moved to Hawaii and life really hit us, it was a hard time but somehow we managed to get by. We both found jobs but on the side I started to share lifestyle photos on Instagram. A little bit of everything from the beach, fashion and food. Instagram was just getting popular around that time and a few brands reached out asking to send me items to promote. At first I couldn’t even believe that was possible, but it was! And that is how I became an Instagram influencer. It was a really exciting moment of my life and I’m so grateful that I got this opportunity. I’ve worked with so many amazing brands and people...all glory to God for blessing me with this opportunity.
YOU AND YOUR DAUGHTERS DO DRESSING UP SO WELL! WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE MATCHING STYLES FROM NEEDLE AND THREAD?
I don’t think there is a piece that I wouldn’t dream of wearing. Every single dress is absolutely beautiful, like in a fairy tale. But if I must choose, the Avery styles are so stunning and all the new holiday pieces are just gorgeous!
