Seven Days New - Baby Girl

It's always nice to meet new parents with their brand new babies.  Even better when they are so engaging and enjoy the experience watching their baby being photographed. It is also very nice when they travel a long way to have me photograph their baby :-) Such a perfect little model too.

Dance Me To The End Of Love

I have been spamming the airwaves with my dance pictures again!  These latest dance photos I took 2 weeks ago of Vilde from Studio 3.  Fantastic instruction by Mana again and some help by Vilde's Mum throwing some flour with Mana. 
I had put out a status on facebook asking if anyone knew of anywhere I could happily throw flour around without it being a problem.  I wanted indoors again. No replies! What a surprise! Then a new person in town that seems to know everyone, told me to contact someone and I found the perfect location! Perfect windows, dirty floor...done!
I was again completely in awe of this new dancer.  Ridiculous flexibility skills times a thousand, on top of being incredibly graceful and beautiful.
I have also done my first Pecha Kucha evening the other night, presenting 20 of my dance photos.  20 photos, 20 seconds each.  It's a fantastic format to keep talks short and sweet and something that Kongsberg really needs.  I have been here for 14 years and haven't known as many creative people that I have in the last week! I am not used to being in front of so many people talking.  I usually like to keep my social gatherings to the minimum so I was really out of my comfort zone.  But I got a buzz out of it! I was nervous but seeing and hearing peoples reactions to my photos was a wonderful experience.  This was a room full of 50 complete strangers.  I only new a couple of people and it is always nice to have friends tell you they love your photos, but when strangers do, that is something else! Thank you to those that came to support me and to those that tried but couldn't make it, it means alot!
So I will keep on going with this dance project and see where it takes me!

Lille Søster Liv

Little sister Liv is just under 1 year younger than her big brother Ola.  359 days younger to be exact!  I did two photoshoots of both of them and their 2nd photoshoots were just 10 days apart.  Pretty cool! Line and I have done a few collaborations together for bridal inspiration.  Hopefully we will be doing some more in the near future.  Right now she has her hands full :-)
I have more newborns just around the corner.  Spring is here finally and I am looking forward to all the blossoms and new leaves on the trees.  The birds are already chirping and twittering, practicing for when their chicks come.
Do you have a baby due soon? They are only so little for a split second.  Those first 10 days to 2 weeks are gone so fast.  Let me capture those first few days so you can hold on to those memories for a lifetime.  It's so worth it.

1 year apart - Ola and Liv

Five Days New - Newborn Photoshoot

My first little baby girl of the year.  It's so lovely when they are so new and they just sleep.
Are you pregnant? It is great to contact me while you are still pregnant so that we can find a time as early as possible.  I prioritise newborns during the week.

Snow Baby - Outdoor Photoshoot

It makes me so happy that more and more people are wanting outdoor photoshoots of their children when it is still cold.  Not only because I don't have a very big space for anything bigger than a newborn, but because it is more natural, more beautiful and what my photography is all about.  The weather was fantastic, after a very sunny day we got some cloud cover but still wonderful light coming from behind the clouds.  This place is perfect in all seasons! Happy photographer dance! :-)
