Tropicos Beauty

When I first moved to Norway, one of the biggest challenges was finding a new hairdresser. This may seem trivial. But here’s the thing. There are soooo many hairdresser chains its mind boggling. It seemed impossible to find my ´own´hairdresser.

At a party, I noticed a friend’s manes looking absolutely fabulous. When I complimented her hair, she immediately said, Tanja you HAVE to go to this guy. You’re gonna love him!

Enter Kim

Immediately he makes eye contact, he takes my coat and offers me coffee. He has no idea that he had already won me over 90% at this point.  I tell him about my nightmare experience, hair breakage and a lot more.

The plan

He planned a full recovery of my dry brittle pathetic excuse of a hairdo. And BAM months later, my hair is healthier and better looking than ever.

I’m happy to share some shots I did for Tropicos  new site launch below.

Kim Nordbø, you are in a league of your own. I can’t wait to see what the future brings for you and your team!

Klara

Se her. I linsen. Ser du det? Ja den åpner seg. Kult!

Akkurat i det øyeblikket ser hun rett inn i objektivet med et intenst blikk. Fotogen og vakker er hun. Og heldig er jeg som fikk fotografere henne. 

Her deler jeg noen bilder jeg tok av denne skjønne jenta med det vakre blikket.

Ten

Two was enough. We were two parents, with two hands each. Two kids was enough. Supposedly.

Guess what? Enough makes me sad.

Deep down I was secretely hoping that one day, I would have a third little baby.  

That day came sooner than I could have imagined.  You were a little surprise, and the best gift I could have ever had.  You came into this world and opened those big blue eyes. I remember thinking ´This kid isn´t waisting any time´.  You were minime v2.0 with extra sparkle! 

Stages were skipped and you grew up at the speed of light making plans to move to L.A. or Miami at the young age of four. Barbie and Ken spoke fluent english and you and your big sister Emma started documenting Ken and Barbie´s lives on the ipad. 

Life with you is fast-paced. And soon my tagline became Never a boring moment–   It seemed all too fitting for the adventures you take me on. Sometimes I feel like we are living out our favorite sitcom and I don´t want to miss a single episode. 

I love your endless hugs filled with love,
I love your energy,
I love your ability to light up a room by just being you.
I love how you challenge me.
I love how you move, your funny walks and your gracious moves. Your range baffles me. 
I love your passion, eventhough it goes into turbo speed at times. 
I love our convos in different accents. Especially our texan and New York routine. You nail it kid. 

Don´t let anyone dull your sparkle my little star. Be brave and go places. Show yourself and don´t be afraid to claim your space. If there is anything I would love to give you in this lifetime, it would be the freedom to be you in your purest form. 

So you go girl! Go spread that energy of with those who are lucky to surround you. 

Butterfly kisses, mamma

 

Finally you are in the double digits. The

Baby it’s cold outside

Some of you may remember Wendy and Kris from the gorgeous destination wedding in Italy back in May. They contacted me for a wintery shoot with their two little girls. It’s always a joy to photograph this family.

And so it was on a cold and early December morning that we met for an outdoors shoot.  This winter hadn’t given us any snow so far, so we chose a white palette to add a wintery feel to the shoot. Early morning may very well be my favorite time of the day.  I absolutely loved the warm and gorgeous light we got that morning. Within just 50 minutes we wrapped up an amazing series of beautiful images.

Much love,

T

Two Sisters

Our neighbours have two sweet granddaughters. And I got to shoot them last week. These girls were very shy to begin with, but they soon warmed up to my lens – and me.

Enjoy the images!
