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.

Squirrel love.

Squirrel love.

We have a new pet! He is a baby squirrel and was found by someone I know, all alone and without a mother. He is about six weeks old and super cute and funny. He will stay with us until he is ready to make his move into the wild (which luckily isn't far away). 

You could definitely say that the kids are happy about our new family member! (and so are their parents, too)

(yes, I have been to Iceland and have got lots of photos to share, but I need more time to let the words mature first)
