Hello my lovely,
in today’s THE AUDACIOUS BABE Podcast episode, I had the pleasure and honour to be interviewing Diana Hagues and chat with her about her creativity projects and freelensing. We had such a lovely chat and she shares her passion for photography with us all.
But before I’m introducing this one audaciously talented lady, I need your help. In this episode we are chatting about creativity projects and freelensing, and how they can help you getting out of a creative rut or just in general help you improve on a personal level which then of course also helps your professional work.
When I first started the Rise & Shine Society I was chatting to Claire Batey about this before as well (who you all know from episode 5 and 6), I’ve always had the urge to do creative challenges together as a community. So I thought to myself why not use our little Facebook group as the platform for this? I’m not really sure how to go about this but maybe we can set something up for the winter months and have weekly, bi-weekly or monthly challenges. What do you guys think?
These could either be challenges that make you take a picture every day similar to the 365 projects (Diana will be talking about those in more depth) but with a shorter time frame as 365 days is quite a commitment… Or we could also do one task and then you have a certain time frame to complete it and post your final image inside the community. So for example, one week we set ourselves the challenge to capture something blue and make it as creative as possible. And we have a week to do it… and then every Sunday we post it in the community.
Some of the images can then also be featured on the Rise & Shine Society Instagram for example. This is really just talking from the top of my head here… We can make these however we want? So shall I start a little poll over inside the community and we can decide if people are up for this?
I personally would love to do something like this in the new year 2018. Like I said it doesn’t have to be a massive time commitment but rather something that is fun and that brings us all together.
The fun lies in doing it together and sharing it with each other… what do you guys think? Yay or Neh? Who’s with me?? Let me know over in our community on Facebook or leave a comment on this blog post for this episode. I’ll create a little poll post in the community and go from there. Whoohoo! Let’s do this…
Diana has completed a 365 project back in 2016 and has worked on a freelensing project before as well. That is how I noticed her inside our little community and immediately thought I want to interview her about freelensing. Soo cool! Her freelensing images and also her professional work images are absolutely wonderful! I will link to all of Diana’s website and online platforms below. Definitely check her out.
I also loved the fact that Diana has only recently started her business (in 2017) as I think it is important to see that you don’t always have to be an established business owner for years and years to still have something interesting and valuable to share. So thanks again for the lovely Diana to come on the show.
I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I had recording it. She is one hell of an audacious babe, don’t you think?!
If you have any questions for Diana, she is already part of our online community, so just head over here and join us! I’m sure she is more than happy to answer any of your questions!
Below you will see some examples of Diana’s wonderful work as well as a few background information PLUS all her social media links where you can find more of her.
Enjoy, my lovelies!

I live with my husband, two children and our family dog in a lovely town north of Cambridge on the Huntingdonshire/Northamptonshire border. I started my photography business early 2017 mainly to keep me out of boredom when my youngest started school full-time this September, and also because I really enjoy taking photographs of other people. I mainly photograph families and shooting in a documentary-style approach that tells the story of the families I capture.
