Midsummer

It was my first midsummer in Sweden in 5 years and damn, it was good, full of sunshine and ice cold water, saunas, beer, croquet and spontaneous kitchen concerts. I’ll have to be back for more next year.

All the greens

A couple of days ago was spent faking a wedding here in Sweden. Me and another couple of vendors teamed up and OH BOY. I’m all the happy with that day. I think it might be the best darn shoot I’ve done so far. And while I’m trying to sneak in photo edits between bbqs, walks and rose, here are a couple of behind the scenes I snapped on Tuesday. And one of the photos we took!

Not enough time…

Can totes summarise life right now. The last week I’ve had essentially all waking hours scheduled with stuff and I’m tired. Oh so tired. I have another couple of fairly intense days ahead of me, but after that: hopefully a couple of days of relaxation. Wish me well.

Until then I’ll leave you with a summery shot from yesterday afternoon/evening, which was spent with a some friends + one cute kiddo!

School’s out!

Yesterday my niece’s summer vacation started. There were songs being sung, talks being talked and afterwards I was forced into an impromptu photo shoot with her and a friend. Not that you heard me complaining…

Say hello to Eddy

Mondays are stable days for my niece. I came along for her last lesson for the season. They headed out, her on the gorgeous horse Eddy, through lush forest and galloping over meadows. I was a wee bit envious, I will willingly admit, although my allergies made me sneeze and sniffle all through the afternoon. While he class was out enjoying their ride, I spent half an hour or a bit more hanging out in the glorious sunshine with my dad and my sister-in-law. Not a shabby way to spend an afternoon, if I get to say so.

Jessica & Joel

I shot my first Swedish wedding last weekend. These two, let me tell you, are darn adorable. They had a small ceremony with a few select friends and family, after which we wandered the streets of Örebro and took some rad portraits. I just couldn’t help myself from sharing.

And there was dancing

Just finished going through all my photos from the marathon yesterday (I won’t bother y’all with them all, cause they’re plenty) but I put together this gif that I just had to share cause it’s hilarious.

Sunshine, a dash of rain, a museum and an amazing friend

Sundays are best spent with Elin. Walking through the city, wandering a museum, having lunch and enjoying a glass or two of prosecco, all while chatting away, like it was a week since we last saw each other, not a year and a half. Note to self: make this happen. Come back every summer for an extended amount of time cause I need more of this. More time with the amazing people I know.
