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.

Perfect match.

Perfect match.

Borklill, could you be more lovely and beautiful and amazing? 

This horse is so good. Although no horse can replace the ones we had, and I still choke up when I think of them, but it feels like this one was meant to come here. It's so perfect how she needed a place to live happily in her olden days, and we needed a horse that we didn't have to school or train much. Just someone to hang out with, go on easy rides with, and who can help out with small farm and forest chores. Someone who the kids can trust and cuddle and groom. Someone I can whisper to and smell and lean on - and photograph.

I guess you can call it a perfect match.
