Four Week Old Baby Girl

Sometimes things get in the way of a newborn shoot and suddenly baby is 4 weeks old.  That might not seem like a huge difference but it is quite significant.  A newborn is still very soft and easily "moulded" into curled up positions that look much more cosy that the legs sticking straight out which happens fast after a couple of weeks old.  Also to get a baby to sleep easily at 4 weeks old is much more challenging.  That said a 4 day old can have a sore tummy and also be difficult to settle.
So when I had a visit from this little girl last week, who felt double the size of the newborns I was used to, I didn't have high hopes of her falling to sleep.  But, as luck had it, she was very sleepy, and was a super cuddly girl who liked her forehead being stroked and fell in and out of sleep until she finally fell into a deep sleep for about an hour.

Malin & Robert's Wedding

Three weeks ago I went to Rollag to take photos at the beautiful stave church, for the super lovely couple Malin and Robert.
It's been quite a while since I took wedding photos, I have to admit.  With all the job cuts in Kongsberg I have definitely been feeling it as a photographer. So I was a bit nervous which I haven't been for a long while! Dark church, dark day.  The kind of challenge I love, and it went well.  Not to go unnoticed that the theme colours seemed to be my favourite - blue and green :-)
After a long wedding ceremony, we took some quick photos on a bridge that I had noticed driving out there and we then went to the party.  A wonderful barn wedding with so many amazing details I couldn't believe my eyes! Generations of family members had celebrated their wedding in the same barn.  It was just wonderful.
I wish Malin and Robert the very best for a bright and beautiful future together. Gratulerer!
