Odette Oliveira

Each week we feature a local eastern suburbs mum and hear about her life in Sydney’s east.

This week meet photographer Odette Oliveira and her tips for living around the eastern suburbs.

Where and how long have you lived in Sydney’s east:

Born and raised in Sydney and living in the east for 10 years now

How many children:

One beautiful daughter named Ruby

Favourite Park:

Centennial…has always been my favourite. I still remember climbing the rocket when I was a child.

Favourite Beach:

Coogee Beach definitely has my heart especially the ocean pool – Giles baths

Favourite kid friendly cafe:

I think that most cafes we frequent (and there are a quite few) are kid friendly and the most recent one we’ve discovered – The Grumpy Baker in Maroubra Beach is definitely so, also great views.

Favourite Coffee Spot:

22 Grams in Belmore Road, Randwick is hard to beat for great coffee and artisan food

Favourite going out at night place:

Verona Cinemas in Paddington with an epic glass of red a packet of Moroccan cashews watching
a great foreign film

Favourite Mother’s Group Location:

The enclosed kids park with awesome sandpit at Queens park is great.

Favourite wet weather location:

Grandma’s house or Ampersand Bookstore in Paddington browsing photographer books and sipping hot chocolate.

Favourite Local Shop:

Sacred Energy Senses in Randwick for the best holistic massage with Meagan.

Work or SAHM:

I am a freelance photographer http://idophotography.net.au and I love what I do.

Continuing the business after I had my daughter was really important to me so I juggle both which is lucky but can be challenging at times choosing whether to work or play 🙂

Motherly advice:

Do what comes naturally for yourself and your child.

Let them be who they are.
