The Student | Autumn portrait session and personal project

Are you enjoying this beautiful autumn? I don’t know about you, but I feel it’s particularly magnificent out there this October. All the golden, copper and yellow tones, not to mention the incredible light, has been very inspiring to me.

As well as photographing some wonderful client portrait sessions, I’ve also created some personal projects, in the shape of photo series. I thought I’d share part of one of those series with you below.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you The Student. I’m hoping for this to be an ongoing series, so please watch this space :). This particular series has been inspired by what I have been learning about myself and about life, specifically in the last four years. Following a devastating life event in 2014, I feel like I am starting over. I am the student. A reborn student. Learning everything anew and seeing life from an entirely different perspective. I have so much to learn still. Maybe that’s the beauty of it all, you are always a student of life.

And so like all nature and light loving photographers, off I went into the woods again with my willing model for a quick portrait session. This time of year is so inspiring! All I want to do is spend my days outside creating photographs. It’s like a drug. You crave a shoot (photo shoot that is), you do it and then you want to do another one right away! I just can’t get enough! This weekend, weather permitting, I’m hoping to get another fix (of autumn portraits!) - I’m just hoping and praying all the leaves don’t blow down in the meantime ;)

Family autumn session in Kallhäll | Stockholm family photographer

What can I say about this family… I could not have asked for a better energy match for me! And if you know me at all, you will know I’m all about the energy! They were SO positive about everything. Even though we had scheduled their family session by the water in Kallhäll, the afternoon we got there it was as wild and windy as the average day in the west of Ireland! It was, by no means, ideal for a portrait session. This family kept smiling though and happily followed me into the woods, where I feel we definitely captured the essence of this adorable family.

While chatting to the mom, I discovered that I had previously photographed two of her friends - they had both recommended me for a Jolly portrait session :). I feel this would be the perfect time to say, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU to anyone who has ever recommended me to friends and family. It honestly and truly means the world to me xoxo

Autumn strikes again | familjefotografering Stockholm

OK, can we please take a moment to appreciate how beautiful everything is outside right now! The colours, the clear blue skies (when it’s not raining!), the crisp fallen leaves, everything! This is one of my favourite times of year to create photographs. A wander through the park, create some timeless images and then you go home and drink your body weight in tea/hot chocolate/red wine. OK, that last bit could be dangerous, but you get my drift!

I hope you enjoy these photographs of my little girl. I know I will treasure them :)
