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.

Afternoons.

Afternoons.

I like them; the last few hours of the day, when Ronja is home from school and we're all outside, doing jobs or playing. And especially now, when it's spring and we can frolic in our fields and forest and discover new things the season has brought. Today we found that several new types of flowers have come up, and the dandelions have started to really decorate our fields with their sweet and tufty yellow heads. 
The weather is still not very warm yet, but we're hoping for it to turn very soon. And in the meantime, we make the best of it.
