Venla and Frida ~ Family Photography, Oulu

A few weeks ago I met up with Venla, Frida and their lovely Mummy to have an evening photoshoot near the river. We had sunshine, bubbles and so many smiles.

Top tips for a painless family photo shoot

I'm not going to lie. In pretty much every family photoshoot I've ever had there's been a moment where one (if not all) of the children involved give up and lose interest in what's going on. I try to reassure the parents, who look naturally concerned when their children are frowning at me and my… Continue reading Top tips for a painless family photo shoot

Hailuoto for Midsummer

As has become something of a tradition for my family, we headed across to the island of Hailuoto to mark Midsummer. While it was the sunniest day we've had for a little while, it wasn't the warmest weather we've ever known. We did brave the sea, the girls and I, for a swim but the… Continue reading Hailuoto for Midsummer

Yesterday was Evie's last day at daycare for the summer. Ordinarily this would be met with whoops and cheers and unending questions about when will we be going to the beach? Can she go swimming today already? If it's the holidays, that means we can have ice cream before dinner, right? But yesterday, in the… Continue reading The days are long, but the years are short
