  1. Welcome back to Small Talks!Every episode, new guest, new city, one big wish: inspiring you with genuine stories about dreams and what makes them happen, meeting our guests across the world at midnight, in the silence of their home.This time we will be in the Netherlands.Marianne is a lifestyle family and portrait photographer – originally from Norway – married to a German and mom to 3 teenagers.If you are curious about her work, you can look into her Instagram accounts: @picturelyspoken and @mariannehopeMarianne shared with me that her dream when she was young was to be a creative. She just didn’t know in what way, straight out of school.She told me the story of how she met the love of her life and what brought her in the Netherlands.We talked about how hard and competitive can be the life of a photographer and how she grew in her confidence, finding her uniqueness and strengths.She told me that to study any kind of creative profession was very hard in Norway in 1992 as there were so few schools and student spots. Since she had good grades in school and an ear for languages she instead chose something that came relatively easy to her -  Economic study in Mannheim, Germany. She didn’t like the study at all, but she did like living abroad, loved student life as it was and there she met the love of her life.In the end – after becoming a mom and passionately capturing her kids’ visual story as an avid scrapbooker - photography found her. The day she decided to take the step to be my own employer and to photograph people for a living, is the day she finally found her why: to capture other people’s stories and to know that they will treasure these moments for years and years, is what makes her happy and what drives her to put in the hard work every day. Join me in this lighthearted and sparkling conversation full of tips!When you have few minutes, could you please rate and review the podcast on Podchaser?

  2. This is a kind of episode that I hope will make all of us feel a bit less alone.During Easter Holiday I met Queenie, who is living and working in Shanghai and Christian connecting from London.Both of them have in common the love for design of spaces and design of experiences and they made this their profession. We talked about the relevancy nowadays of a question like ‘where are you from’, the sense of belonging, childhood and youth memories, space design, blogs and books that inspire, passions and dreams as form of obsessions.
