"I'll take her laughter and her tears and make them all my souvenirs, for where she goes I've got to be. The meaning of my life is She." - Elvis Costello

Wenn der Bräutigam sich auch freut endlich Fotos im schicken Anzug zu bekommen, freut mich das immer riesig. Bräute haben immer schon eine Grundbegeisterung allein schon wegen ihrem Kleid, was ja immer unbezahlbar ost, aber lasst die bessere Hälfte nicht im Hintergrund verschwinden. Bei Männern ist das mindestens genauso wichtig. Die Details am Anzug, Verziernähte, tolle Stoffe, die handgemachte Fliege... 💕
I started this business 2,5 years ago, with a passion for photography and a dream of being a small business owner that help people to create memories they can enjoy for many years and generations. Today is #NationalEntrepreneursDay , so I’m raising a glass of Red Berry Drink in celebration…and celebrating the JOY of taking big risks! 😉 🍷
Sweet Child of Mine
My little girl some years ago! Playing in the forrest close by where we live. Working on expressions and emotions related to the inner child. How time flies. Very soon she will be an adult. Love you so very much my darling girl and my muse @elisajenssen!
Ahh!! Sheer ecstatic bliss!! Connection, vibrance, joy!
It's so easy to get caught up in the noise of our daily lives and forget how vastly wondrous our universe is! That’s why I LOVE collaborating with Mother Nature:
Time stops. A moment expands into an infinitude. My monkey mind no longer exists, having merged with the essence of place and time.
Each sound forms a tapestry of music. Each sensation breathes life into my body. Each scent, each taste of air rushing over my tongue, each overlapping pattern of color, light, texture and motion woven together in a fabric - every delicious, vivid detail stretches that single moment into a timeless symphony that I am simultaneously watching attentively, soaking up, pouring into the creative process and becoming.
I follow the trance-like flow state moment after moment after moment after moment until the scene shifts. The dialogue pauses, and I'm back in myself…
Holding a photograph.
A sacred tribute birthed from the process is also a porthole back into that instance of connection.
The vibrance that I’m honored to experience alone in nature, deep in intimate conversation with our planet, miles from the nearest city, far outside cell range, way off the beaten path in seeming solitude when everything else ceases to exist, including my awareness of self:
That deeply personal experience is transported from nature, through me, through the photograph, through your heart, mind and cells into our larger global community in a chain of shared discovery, dialogue, connection and awe.
Like a planetary breath linking us all.
Breath in - through us- breath out - through us.
So here I am/was/a part of me always will be pondering this, scooping up handfuls of icy water, raising them high into the sky and dancing with the sun-soaked droplets as they free fall back to Earth while I greet them in blissful curiosity and celebration in Mount Cook/Aoraki National Park on New Zealand's South Island.
Huge thank you to my partner/love, Gavin for taking this gorgeous photo that embodies all that I'm here to share and so much more!
Huge love + light + joy + gratitude to you all for sharing this breath! .
This girl here is calling it a night 🍷💤 Many more peeks to share tomorrow but I’m down to just 9 more sessions to edit 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻. — So she wasn’t too impressed by Santa 😂😂😂Sweet Miss Maggie has grown so big since her newborn session. Slow down Maggie! #santasessions#santa#babygirl#sweet#santakisses
In honor of Thanksgiving, I’m going to share a few things I’m grateful for this week 😊 Today, I’m grateful to have gotten the sweetest package in the mail from this kind (and gorgeous) couple. Not only was their wedding a dream, but to receive such a thoughtful gift and note meant so much. I put my heart and soul into my work, and really feel so lucky that my job connects me to so many amazing and big hearted people. 💛 What are you grateful for today?
