Rudolf - A different kind of baby photoshoot

On Friday we went to Wåla Hjorteoppdrett to visit the sweetest 4 week old "Rudolf". His real mum wouldn't accept him, but now he has more mums than he could ever dream of. One of his new mums had to sleep with him out in the barn when he was just born as he needed milk every few hours. He still takes a bottle 5 times a day. He doesn't really know who those strange creatures are on the other side of the fence as he thinks he is a human to.
I first took photos of Wåla Hjorteoppdrett 10 years ago.  I was heavily pregnant and was waddling around, "chasing" deer.  It is such a wonderful farm.  I again took photos here last winter for a bridal inspiration shoot. I had forgotten how tame these beautiful deer were.
My daughter is also a lover of animals and Rudolf followed her around like a puppy dog and even waited for her outside the house when she went inside to the toilet! We went for a walk with him and suddenly he took off which we were all a bit worried about, but he knew where home was and I could see him from up the hill, jumping up to one of the kids bedroom windows waiting for his milk!

Floral Pregnancy Inspiration Shoot

Last Autumn I worked with Hedda on a bridal inspiration shoot.  This time was a little different as she is awaiting baby number two.  What a great way to combine the talents of Line from Numedal Blomster yet again with this gorgeous girl and her lovely belly. 
We travelled to a secret waterfall in the evening and took with my 7.5 year old daughter who played photo assistant and baby entertainer to Line's 4 month old baby boy. There had been a lot of rain the previous week and I wasn't expecting there to be so much water so we had to actually walk to a lower level of the waterfall as the top level was overflowing! The water spray in the air was lovely and cool on a nice hot evening and made for a nice soft affect in the photos.
If you are planning on pregnancy photos and would like to add some flowers just let me know or you can contact Line directly.
Wishing Hedda the best for the last few days of pregnancy :-)

Gustav - Eight Days New

It's wonderful, after doing pregnancy photos, to finally meet the baby. I had fun in the forest and by the lake with this family just a few weeks back to do some family and pregnancy photos.  Little Gustav was born a couple of weeks early and he came for his photoshoot 8 days new.  I might be the only one that finds it funny, but he of course had only been eating and sleeping the last 8 days until he came to me.  Like many babies going to their first ever photoshoot, the world was suddenly way too interesting to sleep! He did start off sleeping when I did photos of him and his sister Embla, and even though you could see he was very tired and probably wanted to sleep, he did prefer to have one eye open to make sure he didn't miss out on anything going on :-) He also was a very cuddly baby and preferred to sleep being held and this made some lovely photos with his Pappa.
Thanks to Line from Numedal Blomster for the lovely flowers that I got to re-use after a pregnancy shoot the day before :-)
Have a great weekend!
