October personal faves | Stockholm barnfotograf

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 ;)

When summer ends on a perfect note | Stockholm barnfotograf

Sometimes everything just comes together in the most perfect, dreamy, harmonious way.  I'm talking about weather, light, clothes, energy, mood, EVERYTHING!  That's exactly what happened for this shoot - the last Jolly portrait session of the summer season.  These amazing, gentle boys are 7, 10 and 14, and while many parents only have their children photographed when they are babies or toddlers, this mom recognised that her boys are changing.  They are growing up.  Fast.  She wanted to capture them exactly as they are now in the summer of 2017. It is truly an honour to be of service to so many wonderful families and to help create their legacy walls :)  

Experimenting with light | Stockholm barnfotograf

My family and I recently spent a few days exploring mid and west Sweden.  In one of the hotels we stayed in, I decided to experiment with the light to see if I could create a really dramatic portrait. Below is the result.  Do I care that it's not a 'typical' child portrait?  Absolutely not!  I love that it's dark, expressive and moody.  You have to believe in your own vision, then wait for the magic to happen.
