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 ;)
2017 brought a lot of fun people into my life (always my favourite kind!). I got to photograph people from all over the world. I loved hearing their stories and providing them with home-made chocolate chip cookies when they came to my office to choose their images.
My dream of filling as many homes as possible in Stockholm with Jolly wall portraits continues to fuel me. Don't YOU want beautiful memories on your wall? :)
Big cups of hot chocolate outside, chunky sweaters and scarves, log fires, candlelit dinners, crunchy leaves and if you're really, really lucky beautiful light - these are a few of my favourite things about October. It's such a cozy month. So much better than November when all I want to do is eat and sleep. Basically, I become a bear in November, and maybe December and possibly January too.
Here are a few of my favourites from October. And yes, our dog Riley really is that cute. No Photoshop trickery has been used to enhance his gorgeousness ;)
... the days are shorter and the nights longer.
I know autumn is here and all the colours are beautiful, but for me, for the most part, I still prefer black and white.
I never wear hats. Unless it's -20 degrees outside, but even then it's usually my husband shoving one on my head while I try and shoo him away. However, I LOVE them in pictures! I'm always looking for cute hats for my girls. One of these days I'm going to do a collage of all my favourite hat pictures and then you'll have photographic evidence that I really do love a nice hat in a photo!
In other news, autumn is here and I finally got to take some personal pictures! :)
