I dare say that today’s interview is with one of the most open and inspirational woman I have come across. Her website is so dreamy and her writing style is amazing. Her images draw you into them in a way I have never seen. Today’s interview is with the amazingly talented Sheye Rosemeyer of Eye Candy Workshops and Sheye Rosemeyer Photography. If you don’t know who Sheye is, then step out from that rock you have been hiding behind and check her out. You will swoon, and gasp and fall in love all over again.
Thanks so much Sheye for agreeing to interview with us, we are thrilled to have you!
Thank you so much for asking me over!
Will you tell us a little about yourself?
Well, I’m a married mother of four who lives in Brisbane, Australia most of the year and Orange County, California for the rest. Three of my children live here with me and one, my Ava, lives in my heart. We lost her in 2007, aged three. Outside being a Mum, I spend my time between teaching photography workshops online and photographing families. We also have a Montessori childcare centre! My days are very full :)
Your new branding is amazing. When I saw it, it looked exactly like I would expect Sheye Rosemeyers site to look like. It is dreamy and whimsical and perfectly you. Where did your inspiration come from for your new look?
Oh, thank you! It really has been a labor of love and I’m so happy it’s been well received. I strived to combine my love of vintage children’s books, my love of children, and my love of whimsy, into something sweet and personal. I didn’t want anything too photography based as I have many other passions and I wanted to create a beautiful place to honor Ava. All of the elements in the illustrations are significant to me in some way and the chime music is a recording of my Mother In Laws vintage music box. It’s lovely to have a website that really does feel like a reflection of me.
Your pictures are so candid and emotional. How do you get your clients to be themselves during a
I play a lot. I genuinely love time with children and tend to spend a lot of my time running around being silly. I also shoot ‘from the hip’ a lot so not looking through the viewfinder means I’m not creating a barrier between myself and my subject. I engage with them in a genuine way so the images are really just a reflection of our time together, as much as it is capturing them.
