Engagement/Dance Shoot

I was a part of a wedding expo last October with Line from Numedal Blomster at Søstrene Storaas.  I gave away an engagement shoot to a lucky couple. It turns out I was also lucky as Kristine and Thomas are ballroom dancers!
I haven't taken photos of a dance couple before so it was really a wonderful experience and fantastic opportunity to see the chemistry between these two.  They were first together as a dance partnership that has developed into a life partnership. Ballroom dancing can be pretty intimate (hot) and you could really feel the fire between these two! :-)
We took photos at Austad Gård in Drammen.  A beautiful location of their choice with dreamy gardens and a rustic manor.  We then took some photos in front of a mural by Telmo Miel.
Wishing Kristine and Thomas a wonderful wedding day.  Wish I could be there! ;-)

Konfirmant i Skogen

Last week I took some photos of Ugne for her confirmation. Her younger brother was also included which was nice.  They dabbed and flossed in the forest :-)
The light was beautiful, though the mosquitoes were biting, which made it somewhat difficult to fully concentrate. I had bought some small coloured smoke bombs which I used for a couple of photos, which suited Ugne since her favourite NRK tv program is the science show "Newton".

Pregnancy shoot - Waterfalls & Rainbows

Sigh...I just loved this shoot! Elvita was stunning and her fiance Tom is rather handsome as well. It made for a beautiful evening shoot with ridiculous amounts of sunshine, rainbows and waterfalls.  Tom wanted a fishing inspired shoot, which I thought was...different, but it was very cute.  Then we did some more typical photos with the new green forest as a backdrop with glowing soft spot lights coming through the trees, followed by a rainbow in a waterfall.  The waterfall is very strong at the moment due to all the snow still melting in the mountains which made extra mist combined with loads of sunshine giving us rainbows and sun rays! The beautiful sun rays in the mist! :-) Typically I avoid shooting in such bright sunshine but when one has rainbows, one thinks differently ;-)
I really look forward to meeting baby girl in a few weeks. I suggested they call their baby Rainbow.  They laughed ;-)
