Søteste Sofia & Store Søster

It was so nice to have sisters in my little studio again.  At first big sister was not so interested and I was worried I wouldn't get to photograph that beautiful girl with the most amazing hair.  She had a small talk with her Pappa and then was ready for the spotlight! The only thing was I didn't get many photos at all of just the baby.  Not that I could possibly complain about that.  I got some lovely photos of the sisters together.  So I asked if they could come back for another shoot 2 days later and little Sofia at 10 days old slept so soundly the whole shoot.  It is very easy when they are so young and so sleepy.  I can put them into whatever position I want.
This photoshoot was a gift from family and what a lovely gift to give someone :-)
Enjoy!

Roadside photography

I never said I was a landscape photographer, and I definitely am not but I would like to call this roadside photography as it was "quick pull the car over", jump out, take a photo or two, jump back in and keep driving.  We had alot of kilometres to cover.  In 3 weeks we drove over 4000kms around Norway.  From Kongsberg up the Swedish coast, through Finland and into Alta, then Kvænangen, Andøy, Lofoten, Bodø, Trondheim, Lillehammer and back to dear old Kongsberg.
There was a section of road between Kvænangen and Andenes that was so breath-takingly beautiful it was almost too much to bare.  We yelled words like "magnificent!" and gasped several times in complete astonishment of how beautiful a country can really be.  I actually found this part of the trip the most beautiful.  Even more so than Lofoten, although that was really incredible too! The low fog rolling down cliffs was just wonderful.  I am running out of words to describe beautiful countryside so I will stop and just show you my roadside pics.  There are a couple of non-landscapish ones thrown in too.  And the photos are completely in random order so sorry about that. I would just like to add that if it wasn't for our brilliant little back seaters that love the car it would not have been possible!
Enjoy!

Awaiting Lillebror

Here is a lovely family I took photos of before the summer break awaiting their new arrival and then with the baby.  The shoot was broken up into three.  Family, pregnancy and then baby. Thanks to Hamremoen Gård for the use of their barn and garden for the family photos.
Enjoy!

Rockabilly Wedding - LinnE & Ståle

I am so glad I delayed our holiday for this wedding.  I had so much fun working with LinnE prior to the wedding and I really got to know her.  A really fun, crazy girl with great taste in all things old and a rebelious nature that meant she was going to wear green to her wedding some way, somehow!
I loved hearing her proposal story and discovered I wasn't the only one that had been proposed to in front of the fridge!! We that can't be surprised, will be surprised in front of the fridge! :-)
I was with them from the church until dancing and cake and it was so nice to see some more fun norwegian traditions.  I especially love the one where if one of the couple goes to the bathroom then they will come and get kissed by all the opposite sex guests. I got a whole bunch of LinnE with a long line up of guys ready to kiss her. Quite hilarious! Also the standing on the chairs to kiss and hiding under the table to kiss is a very fun thing to witness as a non-Norwegian.
The great thing about following a couple all day is that the afternoon/evening light is so much better and this day was a very bright day.  We got some really fun photos of them pretending to hitch a ride and one car even came back twice for a 2nd photo.  The photo of them on the childrens see-saw is one of my favourites and even though they are doing what they are doing they look like hollywood superstars!
Congratulations LinnE and Ståle and thankyou for allowing me to be a part of your super fun day!
Enjoy!
