Forlovet - Engagement Shoot

I have got to know these two over the years.  The first photoshoot I did for them was a newborn shoot for their first born, then a family/pregnancy shoot, followed by birth photos, newborn photos of their second born and 1 year old photos.  They have booked me for their wedding in Italy next year (oh yes I am excited!), so I thought it would be a nice idea with some pre-wedding photos.  An engagement shoot.  As much as they have been in front of my camera, they haven't had photos of just the two of them for years.  So with a bit of giggling they warmed up after a short while and we got some lovely photos of a wonderful couple.
I can't wait until next year! Yes I will travel to wherever you want for your wedding! Just contact me for a chat.

Autumn Light Portraits

It's been raining a lot. For about 4 weeks it's just been dark and rainy.  But those dark days have the most beautiful light.  It's almost a secret!  I am pretty sure most people think it is too dark for taking photos but in actual fact it is the most beautiful time.  Especially in the forest when you have these spots of light piercing though the branches of the gigantic 300 year old pine trees. It is truly magnificent. 
Have I got your attention yet? If not scroll down and see. 
I had the wonderful opportunity of taking some photos of Yvonne the other day.  A modern day "Ophelia", with her beautiful strawberry blond hair and her moody teen attitude.  I made her and her mum sing with me, and we carefully walked along the muddy, slippery path through the dark but glowing forest.  A short but very sweet photoshoot that made me smile.
I hope to see some more of you in the forest with me soon. Contact me today.

Baby Jenny

Some babies just don't sleep when they visit a photographer. Jenny was one of those babies.  We tried for two days but she just refused.  The first day she came to me she brought her dogs with her, which were happy enough to model for a quick photo, without the baby.  I added a semi-sleepy photo of Jenny later in photoshop (last photo). The 2nd day she was calmer and we got some nice sleepy photos of her without her actually being asleep :-)
Jenny's mum was given a gift card for pregnancy photos which was a lovely shoot in nice warm weather outside. 
Looking outside today I see that Autumn is officially here.  The leaves are changing colour already, it's raining and the mist is sitting on top of the mountain behind our house.
Family photo shoots are being booked over the autumn.  The perfect gift for Christmas. Make sure to contact me very soon as I get booked up very fast within the next couple of weeks!
Book your baby session before baby comes.  Then I can make sure to keep open some available time.

Konfirmanten Markus

Like I have said before, it's always nice to have customers come back to me.  Last year I took confirmation photos of Markus' sister.  This year we had it planned for a long time and after many postponed shoots we finally got to do it!
We went to the beautiful lake I never remember the name of, on the way up to Knuten.  It is seriously beautiful up there!  For 14 years I occasionally have a "reality check" and feel like I need to pinch myself that I live in Norway.  This one hits me hard when I breathe in the fresh pine scented air and look around at my surroundings. I smile and know that I am home.
So luckily for Markus I picked this place after using up all my other favourite places and had forgotten about this even better place! :-)
It started raining lightly not long after we started, but this to me is perfect dramatic lighting. A shy but photogenic boy thrown in front of the backdrop and I am a happy photographer.  I have had a good year with more than usual "konfirmanter" and I look forward to many more.

Summer Family Photo Shoot

It is always lovely when families come back to me.  Even nicer when they bring a new addition to the family.  Their youngest had a little fever so wasn't really into having her photo taken most of the photo shoot but we got some good ones.  It's nearly my favourite time of the year again.  Autumn! Perfect family photo season.  The sun is getting lower in the sky earlier, the light is beautiful and the colours seem to be coming early this year.  Make sure to book soon as I already have bookings all the way until Christmas!
