Babies First Christmas

I had the pleasure of photographing this small sweetheart the other week.  I love Christmas and have been in Christmas spirit for a while.  I had crocheted a small green hat for her and decorated lightly with a little colour to match.  She wasn't officially newborn anymore and came to my studio awake and wide-eyed.  But it wasn't long before she was off to sleep and we got some pretty pictures of her.

It's such a lovely time of the year to have a baby.  Having a tiny baby in the house to celebrate Christmas with. I celebrated my birthday yesterday.  I grew up having pool parties outdoors, and slumber parties in tents in the backyard.  How different life is now with snow all around.  But I am forever thankful for this life I chose.

First Snow - Family Photoshoot

It had snowed a few days earlier in Kongsberg, but had mostly melted away.  It has since then, been very mild for November.  I was so happy to be taking photos of Catrine and family.  I have a photo of the two girls hanging in my studio from when Hanna was just a newborn.  4 years seem to just fly by.  We drove up to Knuten to find there was still a light covering of snow, and the lake had already turned to ice.  It had these beautiful swirly, circular patterns in it, like it had frozen quickly in a cold snap. Here we got our of the car and were met with freezing cold wind.  Oh so cold! The kind of wind that blows through you and turns you to ice! They decided we would stay and do some photos here anyway, with in between jumping around, warming up, jackets off, look like it's-warmer-than-what-it-is kind of photoshoot.  The were very good at this! I was impressed!
We then took a few photos at SĂžlvgruvene where there was no wind and it really was not as cold.
With less than 6 weeks until Christmas, I don't have much time left to do any photoshoots.  I am waiting for a couple of babies to be born, and have a couple of midweek photoshoots available.  Contact me asap if you want a spot. Otherwise I have Christmas photos on Sunday the 25th November.  Crossing fingers for some snow!

Dance Project - Autumn

It was a freezing cold day, just before the snow came.  Mana from Studio 3 and I took Ine out to Heistadmoen for a quick photoshoot in the wind.  I had thought that this area was going to give me back-lighting, so had got my directions completely messed up.  But I worked with the small amount of sunset we had left. 
We then went to the forest to take a few more, and she looked like a forest-fairy. It really was too cold though, so we weren't there for long. Ine however, didn't complain once and was a super dancer!
