Hello! I’m Lydia, from Bristol in the UK. I was a single mum of three up until a couple of years ago when I met my future husband. Together we live the family life, taking mini adventures along with my dog. Our adult life doesn’t consist of the usual drink social but instead we enjoy photoshoots. I’m a very creative person. Always making things, sewing, woodwork, painting etc.
How much has modeling been a part of your life?
Well I started modelling about 8 years ago when I split from a bad relationship. Needing a confidence boost I decided to give it a go. It went so well and I enjoyed it so much I decided to put more time into it. I had a bad experience with a photographer after about a year of modelling so took a long break. I only started picking it back up a couple of years back. It’s a good social part of my life meeting new people and getting creative, to the point that standard days out get my mind wondering if this location could work for something interesting.
Was there a possibility that you might have something else if you didn’t go into modeling?
I am also a cleaner. Not as glamorous as saying model, no. But hard work has to pay the bills. I do all sorts really, upcycling furniture to sell too. Most of my time and effort goes into raising my children, modelling is just a fun bonus I get to do.
What do you love most about modeling?
It has to be seeing what has been accomplished. Looking at the end result that was created between the photographer and I. Looking at yourself in a completely different way and feeling body positive.
Have you ever felt nervous before a photoshoot?
I always get nervous before a photoshoot. Even if I have worked with the person before.
Which is the best compliment you have received?
I get a lot of compliments about my bottom! Which always makes me smile. However the biggest compliment is about being a mum.
Have you been in an embarrassing situation before that is funny now when looking back?
Gosh. I’m a really awkward person so most of the time is embarrassing Haha. However the latest situation was in a gorgeous house on a very big and expensive bed with expensive sheets. I had heels on and was trying to get into a sexy position, trying not to drag my heels on the bed I bum shuffled up the bed so much that boobs were all over the place. Luckily the photographer I worked with is lovely and she laughed with me rather than at me.
What is the funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Sliding in the DMs are always the worst.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Lydia. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy is being yourself. Whether its awkward and silly or totally glamorous and composed. Being happy and confident in yourself is what makes you sexy
