Meeting Alexandra, mother from Antalya Turkey

Currently based in Turkey but travelling worldwide, Alexandra Atach and her beloved child Noyemi Pia form the most fascinating duo. Through their blog, they share breathtaking fashion and lifestyle pictures! We could not resist the urge to learn more.

Between a maths class and photoshoot in the garden, mother and daughter took time to answer our questions.

COULD YOU PLEASE TELL US A LITTLE MORE ABOUT YOUR DUO?

With my daughter's birth nine years ago, I took a keen interest in children's clothing. Professional photographer and image maker having worked with many fashion magazines, TV and show programs, my favorite model to picture soon became my little princess.

Living between Turkey, the European Union and the United States, we had the idea of sharing our cosmopolitan lifestyle by creating our very own blog : the NoyemiPia Kidsfashion blog. Through creative and informative content, our aim is to inspire mothers, girls and children's fashion lovers all over the globe.

I am very proud of our team, Noyemi Pia is not only a wonderful daughter but my little muse and a professional mannequin. We have a very special bond growing tighter and tighter travel after travel, photo after photo...

WHAT HAS THE LOCKDOWN TAUGHT YOU?

From this quarantine, I have received several treasures : the main one is the unique opportunity to spend quality time with my family. As there is no longer any reason to rush, I can fully enjoy these moments!

This strange life period has also taught me a lesson of patience. During the first weeks, I was checking the news every hour and worrying about canceled and postponed projects. Slowly but surely, I then decided to accept the situation as it is and to make the most of it. I strongly believe everything has a reason and that time has its own rules. We cannot change this situation but we always have the power to change our point of view

WHAT ARE YOU MOST GRATEFUL FOR?

I am grateful for having a safe and healthy family and a nice home with a garden. In Turkey children under twenty one years old are strictly forbidden to go out in the streets but at least Noyemi can take some fresh air! 

I am also lucky to be able to keep working on fun projects and shootings at home or in the garden with my darling muse. We are together which is what matters the most!

WHAT IS THE FAVORITE ACTIVITY/CRAFT YOU HAVE SHARED  WITH YOUR CHILD SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE LOCKDOWN?

I must admit that home schooling is taking up most of our time, leaving little space for crafts during the week. Yet our photoshoots are our own kind of fun art projects. A way to escape and travel!

Besides we have created a big toy stable from cardboard paperNoyemi is a passionate horse rider and misses her lessons very much so this is a way to make things easier for her! She loves it!

CAN YOU SHARE A FAVORITE RECIPE FROM YOUR COUNTRY?

Turkish food is absolutely delicious and we are very lucky as my husband is a great cook! Despite having lived here for more than ten years, I am not half as skilled as him. I am better at Slavic cuisine which I grew up with. 

Our favorite Turkish food is the Börek. They are filled pastries. We like ours with spice lamb liver. And of course we love Turkish Ayran, a salty yoghurt you will find nowhere else!

This said, we are love tasting international cuisine during our travels!
