Hope you're all enjoying the long weekend! We'll be spending part of ours planning for our summer road trip back to the UK in July.

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.

Last Spring I put out a model call for couples who'd like to come and share their own personal love story with me and have some couples photos taken at the same time.
