Christmas sisters

If empathy had a name it would be Karoline. 

This woman is one of the sweetest, warm-hearted, genuine and generous people I know. So this one is from me to her. 

Dear Karoline, you are always there when I need to vent. You pick up the phone whenever I call. You are a rock. I am so grateful to have you in my life. We share laughter and tears and serious conversations. You always challenge me to look into the WHY of my actions. You challenge me to see situations from a wider perspective. 

That’s why it was such a joy to capture your daughters.

I love that the girls were so into the shoot. And even though they were freezing, they were happy to do what I suggested. 

Mathilde and Hermine, you are such wonderful young ladies. I can’t wait to see you both grow up into strong and whole hearted women. Like your mom.

PS : special thanks to Mathilde for constantly telling mom to have Tanja take pictures. ;-P 

PS2 : we need our ´rørtemoji´ yesterday!

You turned eleven two weeks ago…

At the risk of sounding cliche, I really am amazed at how time flies. I remember your home birth as if it was yesterday. You came into this world ready to take it on and haven’t changed one bit. 

Your passion and feisty nature shows in all levels of your life.  You do things with passion, or you don’t do them at all.  You bring so much joy and fun into my life. At the same time, no-one drives me more crazy than you do.  

Be that unique person that you are! Continue to stand out in the crowd. Not everyone will appreciate that or understand. But what others think of you is none of your business. Nor should it EVER throw it off your tracks. No-one will be like you. 

People will come and go and true friendships will forge as you go along. Don´t be surprised if the ones you hold dear today, dissapoint you. Open your heart to everyone! 

Keep dancing, keep entertaining and keep being the least boring person I know! 

My dearest cheeky monkey, I love you to the moon and back! 

Always know that I have your back, and that I am here to guide you the best I possibly can!

Endless love, 

Mom

FIFTEEN

I call for you. I call again, and again. You mutter ´huh´.

A hazy gaze meets my eye.  Oh, the slumber that is puberty. 

But it´s allright. Paces change, and that´s a good thing. I love every step of the way. 

You took your first breath fifteen years ago today.  I´ve recently learned that the first 1000 days after conception are formative. Some stars must have aligned during your first 1000 days of creation because you turned out pretty good.  I feel so fortunate to be your mother. 

Today you are 15. And on this day you are abroad. You are on a school trip with class mates in Berlin. And to top it off you will fly home tonight. You love flying so much.  In a way, you are teaching me to face my fears.

Thanks for being the young man that you are. You´re one in a million. 

With love, mom 

 

Invitasjonsbilder til konfirmasjon

Herlige Synnøve er en sprudlende nydelig ung dame som vet hva hun vil. Hun ser rett inn i linsen, noe jeg digger!  

Vi kjørte opp til Torstad gård en varm sommerkveld i begynnelsen av juni. Der tok vi bilder til invitasjonen til konfirmasjonen hennes. 

Selve konfirmasjonsbildene er også tatt allerede. Men de får vente til etter den store dagen!

It was yesterday. Please tell me it was just yesterday that you came into my life.

That´s how it feels.

Yet here we are, twelve years later. In front of me stands this young lady. Frail, yet poised, and elegant.

My little thinker isn´t little anymore.

Dear Em, you are growing up so elegantly, reflecting upon life, and the situations at hand. It´s such a joy to watch you grow and flourish as you meander from childhood into puberty. 

How fortunate I am to be your mom. 

I love you to the moon and back. 

Mamma

Winter in the garden

As I came home from a photo assignment, the girls were outside in the most amazing light. So I grabbed my camera an did som shots :-) The garden, all covered in white,  made for such a perfect backdrop.

Akkurat i det jeg kom hjem fra et oppdragvar jentene ute i hagen i det mest magiske varme lyset. Jeg tok kameraet mitt og fikk tatt noen bilder. Hagen, som var helt hvit, var den perfekte bakgrunnen.

Christmas 2017

Jeg elsker julen. Det er desidert min favoritthøytid. I år ble julekortet enkelt. Jeg tok noen bilder av barna hjemme. Hjemmet som i det siste har blitt til et studio.

Jeg ønsker dere en helt magisk jul!

Klem, T

It´s the most wonderful time of the year… This year´s Christmas card was a set of images taken in my home which has become somewhat of a daylight studio. 

May your days be merry, bright and filled with joy! I wish you a wonderful Christmas.

Much love, T
