Hey, I’m Shay and ASeatWithShay.com developed from me wanting to share my mental health story after finishing my Final Major Project on connecting people at University. It was my pre real world outlet and it still is because two years on and I still haven’t conquered ‘adulting’.


Today on a ASeatWithShay.com you will find lifestyle topics, personal style posts which I describe as a mum who spends her days at farmers markets and her nights at edgy bars (dress it into existence), places to visit, events, products I’m loving mixed in with blog and relationship advice (take at your own risk).


I am also a freelance documentary photographer and you can see some of my work right here.






I’m a freelance photographer who gets way too excited at the thought of photography and/or beautiful pictures.


The day it became clear I could make a living from my passion is the day I started living. Science, Math and History just weren't for me.


I try to live a positive lifestyle however life at times is just life.


Fluent in sarcasm.


I’m trying to spend the rest of my life with my camera round my neck and a glass of champagne in my hand.


I’m thrilled my mum had more kids so I could have personal photographers for rest of my days.


So get dug in and I hope you enjoy my posts and sitting at my table.


Love, Shay.



I occasionally have great opportunities to work with brands and review items. A Seat With Shay will sometimes include sponsored posts and affiliate links. These posts are declared as such, and any items which were sent to me to review, as a gift from a company, or which are sponsored are marked with an asterisk (*).

I only feature products and work with brands I genuinely enjoy, like and think would benefit my readers. Being honest and relatable is a huge part of this blogs ethos and all opinions are truthfully my own. Please do not use or copy my images without asking for permission.
