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.

Squeezing in some photos of my stars in between the tons of editing I'm doing these days. We spent the afternoon in the garden, and again I have to both pinch myself for the luck and love I have in my life, and also remind myself to be in it more
Wedding season is coming to an end and I pat myself on the back for getting through it. It's been fun, but also tinged with guilt over being such a busy mama during the loveliest time of the year. Trying to sink into the space of home now, of those little things. In between editing thousands of photos, that is.

These guys, though. My absolute muses. (Plus that littlest one, of course, but he was too busy to be in any photos.)
