During our recent trip to the UK over the summer, we were lucky enough to spend a week in Wales. It really is a beautiful part of the world and our little ladies loved exploring the woodlands at Betws-y-Coed in the north. A gorgeous place to spend some time.
This last week a friend nominated me to take part in one of those online 'challenges' through Facebook. This time it was a 7 day black and white photo challenge. I figured it was worth a try, I'm trying to get back in the habit of taking photos everyday and thought it would be fun… Continue reading Black and white challenge
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
Last summer I took some photos of this handsome little chap when he was only a few weeks old and a few weeks back I took some new shots of him on the eve of his 1st birthday. He had a whale of a time showing me some of his favourite toys while his… Continue reading Joonatan is 1
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
Last weekend I met up with our giveaway winner, Marjo, and her family at Koitelinkoski for their photoshoot. It was a gorgeously sunny day and they were so much fun to photograph. The best thing about a family photoshoot is that you and your family get to have a fun day out and I just… Continue reading Family photoshoot at Koitelinkoski
Calling all mums in Oulu and York!! Last year I launched my first ever workshop designed for mums who wanted to take better photos of their families by helping them understand their DSLR cameras and by helping them to approach family photography in a relatable and fun way. As the summer approaches I'm sure there are… Continue reading Photography Workshops for Mums
My family and I will be in the UK for the last 3 weeks of July, I will naturally be bringing my camera with me and if you'd like to schedule a session for you and your partner, or your family or friends just get in touch! We can have fun at the seaside, at the… Continue reading UK Summer Sessions
The girls had their last lesson of the year yesterday ahead of their ballet school's performance of Don Quixote in a fortnight. They had 'open doors' too so we got to see them in action. I love how much joy is on Rosie's face whatever she's doing and how focused Evie is.
Last weekend we went to the Winter Village (Talvikylä) at Nallikari with the girls. It was so much fun! Reindeer, huskies, snowmobiles, snowboarding, just about every kind of sledging you can imagine and campfires perfect for cooking sausages over. I love days out like these where I can get happily carried away with my camera… Continue reading Winter Fun ~ Jo Jackson Photography
