Test shots with new Nikon D750

A few weeks ago I became the very proud owner of the new Nikon D750.  I have had my old camera for quite a few years now, and even though it still takes lovely shots it  just isn't living up to my new expectations anymore.  I take alot of photos in very low light, or at least I would like to take better one's in low light, and now it is the "dark period" my little studio sometimes just isn't bright enough for my old camera.  I have found the answer to that problem, and it is never going to be studio lighting! :-) This camera is amazing and I can't wait to take more and more photos with it!
Maria was a great model.  I was really impressed my her maturity and enthusiasm to help me out.  I now understand my camera a little better.  Thanks Maria!
Enjoy!

The Secret Barefoot Bride

Every October I get one wedding couple that suddenly call a few days before they are getting married, asking if I am available to take their photos. This time it was two days before and I was luckily free since it was a friday! :-)
On top of that it was another secret wedding! All very exciting keeping things secret for a while.  Well it's not secret anymore and is safe to put out on the blog (actually I just forgot about it).  So here is a very short documentation of a little secret wedding and a barefoot/tree-climbing bride on a lovely relaxing autumn day :-)
Enjoy!

Julekortfotografering 2014

This year I had originally planned not to do anymore christmas card photos but I have decided to do it since it is for my son's school and they are raising money for new play equipment.
I will be making a very nice backdrop for my photos this year and hopefully there will be some snow for some Christmas atmosphere! Hope to see you there!

Siblings And Dogs On A Rainy Autumn Day

I took photos of their Mum and her husband on Valentines Day this year.  It was nice to meet the 3 kids this time with two frisky huskies for a photoshoot.  Usually the weather always seems to get better for me so we went out to Heistadmoen as planned to do the photos, but the weather just got worse so we finished the photoshoot in Kongsberg.  The kids had their own plans of what they were going to do in the photos so it was fun to see how it worked The daughter dances, the oldest son is very strong and the little brother is very funny :-)
Enjoy!

A Family Shoot on a Crisp Autumn Day

My 2nd photoshoot up at Nydammen in the crisp Autumn air was a breeze.  It was lovely meeting this family and it was such a nice relaxing shoot. The family made a day of it with pølser (hotdogs) and marshmallows over the fire which was a nice thing to have on a chilly day.
The only thing that was difficult were the numerous wasps swarming around my head every time I was about to take a family photo! The smoke didn't stop them either!
The 1.5 year old was a serious pappas girl, the 3 year old was fun and dramatic and the 7 year old was up for anything and didn't seem to even mind getting kicked in the face by his 3 year old sister! :-)
Enjoy!

Brooooommm Broooom!

I can't begin to tell you what fun it was to photograph this 2 year old boy.  I photographed him when he was 3 months old which was also very fun since he didn't usually sleep anywhere outside of his home and I got him to sleep! 2 year olds are usually the most difficult to photograph in my experience.  They are very much on the go and running around and don't really have time to notice a camera in their face. I had a real connection with this little guy and we found a log which was a "car" and I made the car noises which he thought was the best thing ever! I laughed so hard I cried :-)

I would also like to mention that I have a new website so go and take a look!
Enjoy!

Høst baby

It was wonderful working with this little 3 week old baby girl. I had taken photos of her older brother a couple of years ago and it is always nice to see a new sibling.
The upside of an "older" newborn that wants to stay awake is that I get more chances to cuddle and settle the baby.  Before I was a photographer I was a nanny and worked with so many babies and small children. So it's my other skill you could say :-) Once she was finally asleep she was really asleep!
The best thing to do if you are pregnant and are thinking of getting photos done is to contact me before the birth.  That way you won't forget so easily and I can contact you to see what stage you are at.
Enjoy!

We Are Family

Family or big group photos can be a little scary.  I am not the type of person that likes to stand in front of a group of people ever!  One on one or small intimate groups I like much better.  But sometimes I get a family that puts me completely at ease. I don't need to give much direction, the two year old is brought into the pictures when everyone else is ready, everyone smiles, and I am one happy photographer...phew! I have taken photos of Tina's immediate family several times now and we have become friends over just a short time.  It was nice to meet the whole family who were very welcoming and actually even wanted me to stay for pizza which we would have if we didn't have other plans! :-)
I followed the kids and Tina around for a little while after the group photos and got some cute photos in the long grass.
Enjoy!
