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.

Sunday slow.

Sunday slow.

These last weeks of winter feel a bit like that Smiths song, every day is like Sunday, we are so eager to embraced by spring now! And to be fair, it has been very lovely and warm and springlike the last week, but it's always like this: You never know. Winter might come back with a vengeance. So it's a quiet time, a time in between. A time where we don't really do much, we read, we go for little wanders around here or in our neighbouring mountains, we watch films, cuddle our animals, play, but there's this continuous feeling of waiting
Today is actually Sunday, so I guess staying in our pyjamas for a good long while and faffing about in the house is legitimate. 

Stay strong folks, spring is just around the corner!
