Ever since I was a little girl, a spring time tradition has been to pick a huge bouquet of Lily of the Valley and give to my grandmother (and usually also one for mum!). After she passed away, the tradition was still kept alive, and every year me and my dad go out together and pick the biggest bouquet possible and put it in a vase on her grave. This flower means a lot to me, it is one of my favourites. When I was 18 I got a memorial tattoo for grandma of this flower, and whenever I see them or smell them, I think of all the nice memories I have of her.

It’s been a bit quiet here lately, but here are some photos taken the last couple of weeks! I’ve just been enjoying my freedom after I finished exams, trying to make the most of each day I have left in Edinburgh before going back home to Norway for the summer. Only a couple of days left here, and it feels so strange…Edinburgh is truly starting to feel like home and it’s going to be weird not being here for 3 months over the summer. Edinburgh in my heart<3

Proud to share the last bunch of photos from my shoot with Kate! I’m really happy with how they turned out and can’t wait to do another shoot with her. So easy when the person you’re photographing knows how to pose to create cool photos.

Time to fight with blood, sweat and tears!

Finally, the weekend was here! This trip was amazing in so many ways. Can’t believe I won this!
We depatured from Edinburgh at 08.30 in the morning with the Haggis-bus with 27 other people and our own guide for the trip named “Paddy”. He called the rainy weather for liquid sunshine and wanted us to scream “AYE” as pirates when he called our name. Funny guy.
The first day was a lot of driving, but also a lot of stops at different places to take some photos. I must say, what a pretty country this is. The nature was just amazing, even with all the rain and fog!
We stopped at the Commando Memorial Area of remembrance, which made a really strong impression. Young men in their twenties, same age as myself, who died fighting in Afghanistan,. Some of the memorials were dated the 80’s, while some others were as new as 2012…
After driving the whole day with plenty of amazing stops, we finally arrived at Inverness and Loch Ness where we stayed at a hostel for the first night.
Part two coming up!

The last bunch of photos taken this summer, thought it was about time to share them.
There is so much to do these days! School is hard, but I really, really enjoy it here. It is so nice to be able to make my own food whenever I want, and to sleep in a big, soft bed. I got the best flat mates I could ever wish for as well, so life is great!
I’m leaving with my sunshine this friday, for our three day-adventure with haggis adventure, the trip I wrote about here. Can’t wait! A whole weekend away from school work, with my sunshine and with so many opportunities to take some amazing photos! I really hope we get some sunny days, even though the weather forecast says it’s going to rain… But fingers crossed!

This is where I live! Baird House at Pollock Halls!
Everything is great! Freshers week is (finally) over. I feel too old for this. Partying seven days a week with next to no sleep what so ever, meeting a bunch of new people every day, new names, new places, new rules. I must say, I was a bit exhausted when the week was coming to an end.
Started my lectures on monday, and everything seems so… exciting! Can’t wait do dig down in my 1300-thick biology book! So far this is everything I hoped for, and even more. Hoping to get some time to talk to everyone back home this week, so people, log on to skype!
Oh, yeah, btw: I won a bunch of great stuff at the freshers auction, which I will tell you all about in another post.
Can say as much as this: a free trip costing over £230!

Another part from the shoot with Aurora. This was such a fun and impulsive shoot, which seems to be the perfect way for us to take cool pictures. It’s always the impulsive shoots that turn out the best. And hey, don’t you just love her tattoos!
I will be moving to Edinburgh in just four days, which right now feels so unreal. Have to start that packing process soon, but I’m a bit confused about what to pack! What on earth should I pack when moving to another country? I tried to make a list, and so far it looks like this:
* Rain clothes
* Wool socks
* Camera and computer
What more do I need?

Since my dear friend Aurora had gotten several new tattoos this year, some really big (as the one you can see on the back), and some smaller, we both agreed that it was time for a new shoot this summer. Really wantet the focus to be on her amazing tattoos on these pictures. Feedback is as always really appreciated!
Still living life in Bergen, visiting some of my friends and saying goodbye to all of them before leaving to go study in Edinburgh!
There will be more post in the near future with a bunch of pictures, so if you like what you’ve seen so far, hit the follow button!

I can not believe this shoot with my friend Sunniva is already four years old! This is the first shoot I ever did, and looking back, comparing with my later shoots, this looks very amateur ish (the photos, lighting and editing). It’s fun to look back at these photos, they make me feel like I have some kind of progress in my work. Hoping to get that shoot with Sunniva done this week, before traveling to Bergen for a little while.
