Hi there! I'm Olivia from The Photography of Olivia G. Jess originally asked me to do a video interview, but sadly, after an hour of work, I lost all the audio for my video! So, a plain, old, typed out interview is what you get today! So, here we go:
1. Who are you, where do you blog, and who do you work for? In other words, tell us about yourself?
I am really an artist at heart. I love to life live to the fullest, the way God has called me to. It's a challenge, but it's so much fun.
2. Five things you love bestest in the whole wide world.
3. Who and what inspires you to blog?
I'm mostly inspired by my family. I love to photograph my siblings and write about them. I draw inspiration from the everyday things that go on, and I've found that a big family like mine is unique and interesting to some people, so I love to share that. This is all of us:
4. Tea or coffee? Strawberries or blueberries? Movies or books?
Am I allowed to say milk? I'm not a coffee or tea kind of girl.
I love strawberries!
Books. Books. Books.
(This question is pure awesomeness, by the way.)
I would eat my donut while I walked around and gave away money to people who caught my eye. Then, with whatever was left, I would go to my favorite store and buy something.
6. Describe a perfect day for you.
Hmmm. I don't think I could plan my perfect day. I would want to spend it with my family or my friends. I would want to do spontaneous things, go on adventures, do something fun. Just completely spontaneous and surprising. Then, I would end it with my favorite book in front of the fireplace.
7. Summer or winter? Paris or London? Thor or Loki?
Summer is the love of my life.
London....and Paris. Both. :)
Chris Hemsworth. That's all.
8. Describe yourself in ten words.
I think my biggest dream is what I have envisioned for my future. I want to get married, then travel with my husband to write and photograph. I want to come home and start a family in a small little town, be a great mom and wife. Then, I want to travel as family. I would also like to have a photography business as well.
10. What keeps you motivated day-by-day and what makes you glad to be alive?
My family and friends keep me the most motivated, especially my friends. I have some wonderful, encouraging people in my life who help me stayed focused on Christ. They help me become stronger in my faith, each and every day.
There are so many things that make me glad to be alive, I don't think I could list them all. Photography, and the joy I get when I take someone's photo. Learning, school, and teaching. My friends, and seeing us become stronger as the years pass. My future, knowing that someday I'm going to be a wife and mom. My faith, that I have the opportunity to share what Christ has done for me, and also to know that He will fulfill His purpose for my life. That's a short list, but there's so many things. I love life. A lot.
