Get off the cross we need the wood

About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.

My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥


~~ The confirmation photosession ~~

Posted by Ania On Monday, September 10, 2012


So! Happy to be taking my sweet nieces photos! We stole half an hour between the church and the dinner (bit short time, and since church took longer than expected we were slightly stressed) to sneak away to a nearby location to get some photos done.


She’s wearing my late grandmothers bunad from Hedmark – a folk dress my sister herself wore to her own confirmation (I inherited and wore my mothers bunad from Østfold).


Gorgeous, isn’t she?


And so cute along with her boyfriend..



I forgot to bring the reflector along, which was especially notably in the regular photos from this spot. Sigh. Still, with some fiddling in photoshop the photos came out alright. Note to self. Fiddling in photoshop is boring. Remember the reflector! Or get a better flash….


Haa. Bonderomantikk! ;)


I did however not forget to bring my Edge 80 along, and found time to play a bit. Love the dreamy photos they produce, and they seem to perform awesome in bright day/sunlight, although I do see that I need way more practice w/these..esp when it comes to figuring the various tilt angles out….(and maybe I probably need to get my eyes checked again soon).


I have a hard time finding a favorite I like…


I do love the 70-200 for portraits, though.


She’s so grown..


Here’s my sister dearest…she borrowed a bunad from her mother in law.


Love these girls! And so happy to get to shoot my niece on her big day :)


Done w/the photos – back to regular scrapbooking shortly! :)

    Wow these shots are incredible! It is obviously posed but their look is so fresh and natural. I just love the traditional dresses on your sister and your niece. The backdrops are fabulous too.

    Nydelig vakker jente! Flotte bilder - og du har da klart deg fint uten reflektoren. Ekte fotografer klarer sånt! :) Godt jobba :) *klem*
