What was it like having your home photographed for HomeStyle?

It was great, Jemma the photographer put me at ease right away. It was a really busy but fun day.


What was your favourite part of having your home photographed for HomeStyle

Seeing the house styled up a little differently gave me some ideas for the future, and I learned some great tips.


How did you prepare for the shoot? 

I cleaned and tidied the house like a maniac! And made sure everything had a place. It focused my mind and made me finish off those little jobs that needed doing.


Did you learn anything from the photographer?

That I need to smile more! I hate having my photograph taken and I think it showed as Jemma had to keep reminding me to smile.


What advice would you give to future HomeStyle cover stars? 

Relax and enjoy it! I felt nervous and was worried about how the house would look in the photographs but it was great fun.
