A mother of four, photographer, nature lover. Someone trying to make sense of it all, through photos and stories. 

I try to be free in all senses of the word, so I made the leap and now work with what I love doing; taking pictures, storing this life in moments, both for myself and for clients. My heart is in photographing birth and motherhood, but I take on just about any photography job. 
(See my birth photos at www.birth.no and the rest of my work portfolio at www.bygdefotografen.no.)

I live on a farm in Norway with my children; Ronja, Freja, Falk and Ulv, and a bunch of animals. We grow our own food as far as the seasons allow it, we don't go to kindergarten, the three youngest ones will be homeschooled.

We govern our own lives, we strive for independence, we want to be in this life wild and free and full of love.

Winter light.

Being busy at work and generally tired from winter and life has made me take very few photos of our everyday life this autumn and winter. Now, slowly and surely, I can feel my energy and happiness crawling back to me, and I've more and more been back to what I always did before - wander the fields and forest with my kids and camera in hand. And although winter is hard, with all its darkness, the short spans of light are so beautiful. 

To the sea.
