Mindset Coach & Photorapher Tanja Notschaele

First of all, I would like to thank you for having me and giving me this opportunity to tell my story. I started experimenting with photography from a very young age. Basically when I got my first camera from my parents. I started trying to replicate fashion shots with a friend in my backyard and experimented with the clothes and the make-up I had available at the time.

As you may probably have guessed, the pictures were fun to look at but I was very proud of myself. From there it simply naturally progressed. I chose to study communication design which also involves photography and videography and after working for a while in print advertising I had to go back to craft that involved me actually doing something with my hands.

Instagram played a big role in this since I started my page and also here I was really eager to reproduce some shots I really loved, playing with the textures and the light until I found my own voice in it. Now I am not only loving my flying food shots but I immerse myself in fashion and commercial photography and videography. 

Which favorite quotes do you love to use?

I am not the biggest follower when it comes to quotes since I think that every life is different and you shouldn’t try to follow anyone but when I was growing up, my dad always said this, “You already have a no but you can get a yes“. This is something I also teach my clients within my happiness program. It means that you always start out with a no. If you really want something or you want to ask for a promotion for example, you already have a NO right now. But if you go and do the thing you wanted or ask for the promotion, you may even get a yes!

What is a typical day like for you?

When I get up I take some time to cuddle with my dog and my boyfriend when I am with him, drink my mushroom coffee, meditate and take my dog out for a walk. Next, I usually get my mails done before hopping into coaching calls. I am a happiness coach next to my photography business, helping people to find more purpose and fulfilment in their lives.

Just like the feeling you get after a spa day. I help my clients to implement exactly this relaxed feeling, for good. It’s such an amazing job to do! I get the task done for the day which vary from week to week, prep some healthy, delicious, vegan food. If you didn’t get it by now I also really like to cook and share these recipes on my Instagram. Afterwards I usually end my day with some training and a walk with my dog. 

Do you have any hobbies or interests?

If I have anything it would be too many interests. I feel like I need about 10 lives to learn and do everything I would want to learn. Right now I am into pole dancing and teaching others this amazing skill as well. It combines this strong masculine energy because you need so much strength and willpower with the more flowy feminine energy of dance and grace! I simply love it. I also started to upload workouts and flows on my YouTube. Other than that, I am always eager to progress my crafts. Right now I am learning so much about the energies within our universe and in our bodies and how to use them for our best. 

If you could have a super power, what would it be?

This is a hard one but probably to be able to fly. When I sit here on my balcony, I wonder how it would feel like for the birds to experience this incredible freedom of dancing in the wind. Must be a breathtaking feeling. The closest I have come to this was when skydiving. Which is already pretty amazing in itself.

Do you have any guilty pleasures when it comes to food?

Nothing is a guilty pleasure in my opinion. Why restrict something or label some foods as bad? It’s only the meaning we give it and if we pay attention to how much we eat and to balance it out with mostly whole foods it’s no big deal to indulge in chocolate or ice cream from time to time. 

What turns you off on a date?

What turns me off is when a person is trying to put on a facade thinking they need to be someone in order to be lovable. I totally get that it comes from a fear deep down inside, something they probably learned from a young age. I haven’t been different myself. I was super shy and never trusted myself enough to put myself out there but now I know who I am and I can see through these masks. I would much rather help them get past them but for a date I am looking for openness, honesty, fun and kindness. 

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Tanja. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?

I feel sexy is whatever you feel comfortable with. Sexy to me is if you can totally and unapologetically be yourself. Wear what makes you feel great, be who you feel comfortable and speak your truth. I am very much attracted to people who are not trying to be liked or to be any ways but are totally themselves even if this may be different or “weird” to some. We need this diversity and this acceptance around it!
