What was it like having your home photographed for HomeStyle?
It was an incredible experience, but I was very nervous beforehand. However, the photographer, Katie, made me feel really relaxed and she was so friendly that before I knew it I forgot how nervous I was. It was a super exciting experience to see Katie work, and it also made me feel proud of my home.
What was your favourite part of having your home photographed for HomeStyle?
I loved seeing behind the scenes of a professional photoshoot. I often take shots of my home for my blog dontcrampmystyle.co.uk and for Instagram, but there are loads of other things I have never considered and I learned a lot seeing Katie in action!
How did you prepare for the shoot?
I wanted to make sure everything looked pretty so I restyled a few areas like the cushions on my sofa and my bedding a few times before I was happy with the results.
Did you learn anything from the photographer?
Katie has an incredible eye and I realised that sometimes less is more, she also encouraged me to experiment with some different angles and close ups which I have already put into practice on my Instagram @idontcrampmystyle
What advice would you give to future HomeStyle cover stars?
Relax! And be prepared to be on hand with the photographer to help move things around. Also enjoy it – because it’s a fun day and an unforgettable experience.
