What do you love about what you do? 

The best part of my job is being a part of great celebrations.  Birthday parties, anniversaries, weddings are all happy times.  It is rewarding being a part of and capturing such great moments in others lives.  

What makes Heart and Sol different to your competitors?

Heart and Sol is unique in the market. There are other photo booths, but we are the only one to operate from a vintage caravan.  The experience is different as party goers can escape inside and let loose without the watchful eyes of everyone else.  There is always laughter inside which peaks the curiosity of the other guests.  People are naturally drawn closer to see what all the fun is about!  Who are the founders behind (your business)  My names Nicole, the founder of Heart and Sol.  I’ve had a lot of nights talking over my ideas with friends and other small business owners to develop the concept and to make it all happen. 

Advice on how to get a party started?

The best way is to make your customers feel comfortable. If they are comfortable with you, they will get the most out of their experience.  I like to put on some of the props and chat and laugh with all the party goers.  When they know you are having fun, it puts them at ease. They are more willing to let their inhibitions go! 

What’s the funniest/weirdest thing that’s happened to you at an event?

 I worked a birthday celebration awhile back.  It was a very fun group.  Groups were going in and out of Heart n Sol, everyone laughing and admiring their pictures.  At one point I popped my head into the caravan only to see three naked bums!  I laughed and then casually reminded them that I have copies of all the photos taken..
