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.

Motherhood is bliss.

Motherhood is bliss.

Although she started out as a rather confused and stressed out mama (and thus verging on violent), Buttercup has now, with safe guidance from postpartum doula Nik, settled wonderfully into motherhood. They are outside together all day, Tussie feeds when she wants, gets cuddles and is thoroughly taken care of by her mother. Patience paid off, again. 

The great outdoors.
