Daily grooming and connection with such a sensitive and intelligent animal is definitely a great way to de-stress and feel more positive, that feeling of utter freedom as you thunder across an open field, dirt flying, the muscles working beneath you, it is incredible.Read More
January, for me, is a month of rest and quiet days. With a slow daily routine, getting up, getting the kids to school and kindergarden, feeding the cats and the chickens and collecting eggs, doing a bit of work on the computer, shooting an elopement here and there, and allowing myself time to just 'be' and making sure I get to bed early. Long morning walks with my camera on those few clear frosty days, and warming up in front of the fire afterwards. Another great pleasure this time of year, when I feel spring approaching but there is nothing really "fresh" to eat yet, is to pull some of the frozen berries and fruit collected the summer before and make jam.Read More

So I decided to do a solo roadtrip in the week inbetween, driving from Cph to Oslo and North to Nesbyen to visit Alexander and Pauline at Lille Alpakka, then explore the two National Parks of Hardangervidda and Folgefonna, and finally head south to photograph the wedding in Stavanger.Read More
Every year, without fail, September feels different. With the mist from the sea slowly rising up swallowing our house and the fields and trees around us, covering every surface in a silvery glow of thousands of tiny water beads. All of this only to subside moments later as the sun rises, turns the silver into gold, and drives the mist into hiding in the shadows of tall trees and in valleys. These mornings are quiet...Read More
