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
Happy Midsummer everyone! Hoping the sun shines on you at some point this weekend!
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
We headed to Ainola Park today and when the wind dropped with the sun shining...it definitely felt like spring was finally in the air. And surrounded by green buds and other families enjoying the weather, it seemed a shame not to indulge a little treat in the sunshine. Fazerina ice cream. Bliss!

As the summer approaches I'm sure there are… Continue reading Photography Workshops for Mums
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.
I can't believe we're almost at the end of January and a whole month into 2017! This month has flown by. For me, this year is all about taking chances and the first of those chances was to enter 50 of my photos into an international photography contest! It's a scary thing to put something… Continue reading Taking Chances ~ Jo Jackson Photography
