Q&A with...

WHO Helena Schütz, Art Director and Photographer
CHILDREN Lykke, soon to be ten years old, & Levi, soon to be seven
HOME The Østerbro neighbourhood, Copenhagen
Copenhagen based photographer Helena and her two children, Lykke and Levi.

Q What is the most challenging part of being a mother?
A The amount of time you worry about them.

Q What do you love the most about being a mother?
A I’m in it for love!

Q What have you learned from becoming a mother?
A Patience.

Q How is your work/life balance?
A I have been working as a freelance art director and photographer for
about 3 years now, and that makes all the difference in the world. I can do early pick-ups if the children want and just be more flexible in a hectic everyday life.

 

Helena's favourite Nofred pair, Mouse School - Chair and Table.

Q What is your favourite Nofred product and why?

A The children and I love the Nofred Mouse Chair in oak, plus the table (the School version). It’s the perfect spot for both play and homework, and it’s really cute!

Q What was most difficult to let go off when you became a mother?

A Eating out all the time and having a clean house, haha!

Q Do you prefer lots of appointments and tight schedules in your
family or just hanging around in pyjamas at home?
A I definitely prefer to have a bit of a slow pace in our house. On weekends we never leave the flat before noon.

Helena Schütz, photographer and mum of two.

Q How do you feel about all the children's things lying around the house? Do you, for example, tidy up every night?
A My children love to be creative! They draw and paint all the time, and if they get their hands on an empty cardboard box, it usually stays with us for two weeks! So yes, we try to tidy up but it’s still messy. Like all the time.


Q How are the mornings at your house: calm or crazy?
A If it’s not a weekend, it’s always crazy!

City children, Lykke and Levi.
