I know, I know, it's March and I'm waaaay late with this post, but better late than never, right? ;) These are my favourite personal images from January 2018. Yes, some days it was ffffffreezing outside and I almost got frostbite in my fingers, and some days there was almost no light, but we powered though and I'm happy with the results :)
When are you happiest? There are a few things that really do it for me: a great sleep, a meal my lovely husband has cooked, and making beautiful photographs! I love to be outside exploring, and being outside taking photos is where I am in my element! Do more of what makes you happy! :)
This was one of my last photo sessions of 2017 and I LOVED it!
It was a chilly November morning when I got to this lovely family's Stockholm apartment, but the welcome I got was warm. This family was a perfect energy match for me! They were laid-back, positive and open to all my suggestions. They hung out on the couch with their delightful little daugher and their calm and adorable rescue dog while I photographed them.
For the sake of variety, we popped to the little park across the street where we got some gorgeous images of this little girl and her dog. I was SO exicted about these shots, but somehow managed to 'stay cool'! At least I think I did! Thankfully, the mom and dad loved the same images I did and now have beautiful framed prints to grace their walls. What beautiful memories of a fleeting time :)
Out of all the photographs I take, the ones of my own children are always my favourite. I don't photograph them every day (I don't want them to hate my camera!), but when the mood is right and all the elements come together, I will crouch behind my camera and photograph them as long as I can. My ongoing project, A Jolly Childhood, featuring my daughters, is already a huge collection of work. I thought you might enjoy the highlights of the 2017 section ;)
