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.

One and a half!

One and a half!

Your half year mark was something of a milestone for me, a day I grasped onto in the future as we got through the hardships of our beginning. When we reached it, the 15th of February 2016, I took some photos of you on the spot where you were born in the living room and wrote you this. And now, a whole year has passed since then (and I had to take photos of you on that same spot again, and probably will every year until you are grown up, when I think of it). You have turned into a bonkers toddler, with the attitude of a gangster, prancing around like you own the place (any place, that is, wherever we go), belly out and always that big confident grin on your face. You make me laugh a hundred times a day. You give the drooliest kisses, tell the funniest stories (in a language only you understand), you are crazy and playful and cheeky and so happy, and definitely someone who can stand up for yourself. A real wolf cub!

I love you endlessly.
