About Me

Mum / Photographer / Plant based chef / Permaculture Inspired Kitchen Gardener / Nanny / Friend

Hi, I'm Emel but many people call me Emma.

I love making children laugh, cooking healthy dishes for families and taking incredible photos and making videos of kids that I look after.

I'm a professional photographer, a chef who recently completed training at The Vegan Chef School and an experienced nanny. I've worked for beautiful families over the past ten years, and I became a mother myself in July 2018. I now understand children better than before, and I am truly in love with every single one.

Photography, growing veggies, wild food walks, cooking plant-based meals, fermentation and baking bread are my favorite activities. This means I am going to take photos and do lots of art crafts with your little one. We will cook, eat yummy&healthy foods and play with soil, do long walks with magnifying glasses. Dancing and singing included.

Please get in touch if you need someone who worked as a nanny before and a mum and can look after your little one.

My Experience

Nothing makes me happier than working with children. I studied art and worked with children in an art school. I taught analog black&white photography. Our youngest participant was 6 and the oldest 19 years old. You can read about my project 'Sirkhane Darkroom' from the guardian's website.

I worked with many families. I did live in/ live out nanny assignments. I looked after children between the ages of 3 months to 12 years.

My Qualifications

I study child nutrition and physiology on Coursera. Big fan of English pediatrician and psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott and The Hundred Languages of Children: The Reggio Emilia Approach.

We feel very lucky to have had Emma come and take care of our 2yr old, especially at such short notice.
Emma was very attentive, caring and nurturing with our daughter & managed to keep me posted throughout with regular WhatsApp updates. Creativity seemed to be the theme, and Emma was in no shorty supply, managing to create some fun arts and crafts projects for our daughter; she also took some fantastic Xmas photos of our her - lovely memories to treasure. This was a very positive experience for us and our daughter had a great time. We hope to see you again soon.
Can’t recommend Emma enough!

I came across Emel as I was looking for occasional babysitting for my two years old. She bonded immediately with my child. Emel is playful and engaged so well with my son. She baked delicious food for us, helping me sorting out my day. She's also a professional photographer and took lovely photos of my boy as they played. I reccomend Emel as she is warm and attentive towards children, very calm and positive, reliable and prompt at sorting out activities for the day.

Emma has been taking care of our 2-year old son on Fridays for the past month. She is absolutely fantastic. She bonded with him immediately. They have a lot of fun together. She cooks extremely well too. I cannot recommend her enough and I am very happy our son gets to spend his Fridays with her.

Emma looked after my daughter recently and we couldn't be happier. She is kind, creative, proactive and a joy to have around. Not to mention a fantastic cook!
She bonded with my 18 month old right away and was great at entertaining her, teaching her new songs and going on local adventures together. I would have her back in a heartbeat and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

I have known Emma for over 12 years and would highly recommend her as a nanny.

Emma has done lots of babysitting for my 2 daughters in when they were younger and has always been completely professional, trustworthy, honest, friendly and reliable. She is a wonderfully warm, intelligent, creative, person and has the experience and wisdom of being a loving, kind mother to her little boy which is a huge asset in itself.
