Jenny´s Interview in Grazia -mag

I was interviewed by the French magazine Grazia a while back. I don´t know French but here are some of the questions they asked me, in English.
Name: Jenny Brandt
Job: Photographer and blogger and webshop owner
Family: I live with Jens Grönberg, illustrator. And kids: Viola 7 and Frank 3
Where do you live: We live in the country side of Ystad Sweden. In a house from the 40´s with a garden.
Your daily routine ?
7.30 Waking up- drinking coffee
8. 30 take the kids to school and daycare
9.00 back home for work and more coffee. Jens and I work from home and it is so nice having the house to yourself during the day.
On the days that I have photo assignments I leave at this time. For work I photograph kids fashion, Home tours and projects for the blog.
14.00 4th cup of coffee around this time..
16.00 pick up kids
17.00 TV. Dinner. Homework and sometimes Viola and I photograph something together.
Your favorite websites ? I shop at quite a lot and have a saved search word for “outrageous” there. And The Wicked Spiritual Sisterhood is my bible, what ever my problem might be this is where i find the answer..
Do you have a special “trademark” ? A “mantra” ? “Don´t take yourself too seriously”
Who or what are your mentor ? I admire people who set up goals for themselves without caring what other people think.  People with a passion but without pretentiousness. (I have trouble getting along with pretentious people.)
I love John Waters and Lady Gaga
Your favorite things to do on a Sunday ? I love photographing my daughter. On a good Sunday that is what I´m doing.
The “too much” thing about you ? I want to work ALL THE TIME

Do you have any advice / tips for having more personal / couple time ? I love to watch TV with Jens when the kids have gone to bed. We have a few shows we watch over and over again. Like TV carnage and Curb Your Enthusiasm I love how we laugh at the same thing, it reminds me of how I feel in love with him.

Fun! I love photographing my daughter too. Sometimes she’s into it, sometimes not.
