I had the pleasure, and entertainment, of interviewing Heather-Nicole about her latest venture as a blogger at Blooming with Heather.
Marla: What made you want to start a blog?
I wanted to give my audience the opportunity to get to know me, I mean, really know me. They see the pictures of me and my family, but they don't get to see our daily lives leading up to the photo shoots. I wanted them to see the real us.
Marla: What made you want to become a content creator?
Heather-Nicole: I just love taking pictures of my children. One day, someone offered me products to take pictures of my youngest son, I obliged, and the rest is history.
Marla: What is one of the biggest struggles you face as a stay at home mom and a full time content creator?
The most difficult part of being a stay at home mom and full time content creator is keeping my children entertained while managing a productive work schedule.
Marla: Tell me about one of the most unexpected things that happened during a photo shoot?
When my family was taking Holiday pictures by the pond, my youngest son almost fell into the pond chasing a tadpole. I was mortified! But we avoided disaster...That day.
Marla: What is your biggest struggle as a content creator?
As a content creator, I overthink. I have a confession: I am a perfectionist when it comes to taking pictures. I am learning to be okay with my flaws. Flaws are beautiful and as a content creator, my audience prefers the real me.
Marla: What is your biggest physical insecurity?
I'd have to say, my biggest insecurity is my mom pooch. I have always been curvy, but seeing it on camera made me a little uneasy at first.
Marla: How did you overcome your insecurity?
Um, that's a hard one. I've had to constantly remind myself that I am beautiful. I am a mother of three children and a wife to a husband whom adores me. I am blessed.
Marla: What's one thing your audience doesn't know about you?
I am a licensed cosmetologist and I don't have any tattoos, nor do I want any.
Marla: Okay, now this is going to be quick. I am going to ask you a question and you choose one answer, got it?
Heather-Nicole: Oh Lord, okay.
