Tell us a bit about yourself? Who is the sweet Tahlia?! I am just a regular every day mamma. I'm 25 years old, married to my high school sweet heart and have a beautiful daughter Summer who has just turned 18 months. I am a part time wedding coordinator and part time photographer. I love spending my days off roaming farmers markets, taking trips to Byron Bay and just general adventuring with my little tribe.
What is your new business + how did it start? Last year I started my own Brisbane based photography biz called Wylde Folk Studios. I have always loved photography but I really dove into it since I have had Summer. She is my muse and inspiration. It was from the support of friends and family that I really got the confidence to go out and put my passion into action when it came to photography. Its been such a magical ride already, I adore getting to know families and being able to photograph those special moments in time for them to treasure. I have really been focused on family portraits, children, bloggers and businesses the last few months.
How do you find balance being a working mama?
To be completely honest the last few months have been a total whirl wind of work and motherhood. It is only recently that I feel I have mastered the whole working mamma thing. The biggest help I have found is purchasing a diary, now normally I am the type of girl who buys a dairy uses it for a week and never sees it again ( please don't tell me I'm the only one that has done this haha ). This time its been completely different with so much going on between my two jobs, mum life, friends etc I was finding my mind was all over the place, I felt unorganised and anxious. Its so nice now to be able to see exactly whats planned in the coming, day, week or month right in front of me. I also make sure I schedule in time to look after myself. Wednesday evening I always have Jesse my hubby take Summer for an hour while I enjoy a long shower, and just bliss out for a while. I also exercise 3 times a week I find this keeps me positive and in a really focused state of mind. Its so important to keep our cups full us mammas because if we are not looked after it makes looking after our loved ones very difficult.
Who or what inspires you?
Gosh I am inspired by so many beautiful people, places and things ( pintrest is super addictive isn't it ). I love fashion my favourite brand would be Spell Byron Bay I have been wearing it for many years and I just feel so confident whenever I put a little bit of spell on. I love travelling and places like Italy and Greece have really inspired me. In regards to my photography style I think as a photographer it really is about trying out lots of different style that catch your eye, experimenting and exploring. I feel I have really fell into my photography style quite early I always come back to my really organic, natural, bright, clear style that I really adore.
