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.

Twenty-four hours in paradise.

Twenty-four hours in paradise.

I have no other word for this place. We have been talking about it and longing for it the whole winter, this beautiful spot on Earth which gives us all we need in its full, perfect simplicity: Sea, sand, sun, trees, birds, wind, grass. After having been at a birth the evening before, I was already high on life, so packing up and heading here felt like the only thing to do. With responsibility of the farm and the kennels, it isn't so often we can get away together in the summer, so it feels all the more important to do it when we can.
The weather was perfect. Everything was perfect. 
I am happy and thankful and summer has moved into my body. LOVE.
