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 man Nik and my children Ronja, Freja, Falk and Ulv, plus 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.

Unconditional love.

Unconditional love.

She's only seven years old, but in wolfhound-years that is old age - they tend to give in a lot sooner than smaller breeds. She is still in good form though, a bit stiff on her hind legs, perhaps, but shows every sign of health and happiness, steals foods like always, runs around in the fields as always. We soak her in. Snuggle up on the floor in front of the fire, kiss and whisper and do that lovely telepathic transmission you can only do with animals. Our Billie, she is so lovely, she has been here through the whole journey.
