Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)

I know this post hasn’t anything to do with food, so feel free to skip it.

I just wanted to share some of the photos from a little photoshoot I did with some friends the other day. Oh vacation is nice! Time for doing whatever you want.

It was such a nice and cozy day. We pretty much spend the day in the bedroom at the upper floor. This room is for sure the room with the best light in the house. With windows in three of the walls it is no other room beats it. What did we do? Simple; drank tea, took pictures and dressed up. (And ate the rest of the christmas cookies for lunch, whoops).

Marie and I both dance ballet, so obviously we had to take a ton of ballet-inspired photos. Signe is amazing at doing make up and both Karen and Signe are great at doing other people’s and their own hair. Marie is an actual model – the classic portraits are of her. Oh and the tea pictures; my tea-buddy Karen and I (well, I guess we are all tea-buddies).

Here are the pictures from at fun and creative day.

I’m SO in the Christmas mood. I can’t wait for it to be Christmas. This weekend we “made the greenhouse ready for Christmas”. It is so cozy out there now. I just had to share the pictures.

It actually isn’t a greenhouse. It is what you call an “orangerie”. Like a mix between a winter garden and a greenhouse. I love that title building. In the summer we grow tomatoes and grapes there and the rest of the year it is just a small building you can sit in and enjoy whichever whether it is.

Merry early Christmas!

Congratulations Alexander!
So Saturday was the big day. My dear brother got confirmed. Yay – such a great day!
A little week ago I wrote about my first day as event photographer and about the tradition about being confirmed in Denmark. It’s always a great day – for the confirmand as well as for the family.
The day and the party went very well and I think Alex really enjoyed it. I did as well. Nice people, nice food and I got to take photos the entire day :D
Couldn’t get any better!
After we had been to church we went to the marina at the lake. When all of the guests had arrived we went on a little sail tour on the lake. It was so nice! And the weather was perfect. Oh, and we brought a ton of food.
Later on at home we had the best dinner ever. We know a chef who’s amazing at cooking. Just look at the appetizer:
Yummy yum!
Unfortunately I’m not as satisfied with the pictures as I am with the pictures I took at the last time i went to a confirmation, but all in all I think they are all ok.
So a big day is over but my gosh we all (especially Alex) now have a lot of great memories!
Thank’s everybody who made this day special!

One of my biggest dreams at the moment: Becoming good event photographer

Or just a good every-day-photograher. I find it so amazing how some people can catch a moment perfectly in a picture. How they manage to keep the moment forever.

I’ve always thought it’s so important to take photos of your life. It makes you remember everything way clearer. And so I started practicing.
I bring my camera everywhere, knowing that if I don’t I’ll always regret it. And yesterday I brought it as well…

In Denmark it’s a tradition that almost every child who’s christened are confirmed around the age of 14/15. Of course you can choose whether or not you want to. It’s always a big day for the family and the the confirmand. In most cases probably not because of the religious courses but because the confirmation shows that you’re growing up and can make choices by yourself.

It’s already two years since I got confirmed but in one week it’s my brother’s turn.
I can’t wait. We’re planning a big party at our house and I’m going to take photos all day long.

But I was talking about yesterday… Yesterday one of our good friends got confirmed and therefore we went to his confirmation-party. And guess what? I got the honour to sit next to the confirmand. Wow. I’m so happy.
And one more great thing about the day: I immediately seized the opportunity to photograph. Yes – what else? So yesterday was kind of a warm up/ practicing for my brothers confirmation next weekend.

I’m sorry that these pictures are only pictures of food, but I don’t know how people feel about pictures of them on the internet, so I’m not going to post any with people on them

I’m actually quite content with the pictures from yesterday. I got the cutest picture of some of the smaller girls in their pretty little dresses, a great one of the father making a speech, the smaller children playing “christmas three” around the uncle while he held his speech, the older children (including me) making silly things and the confirmand opening his presents.

Of course they are not perfect but ok I think. At my confirmation a good friend of ours took a ton of amazing photos. He’s definitely one of my idols – he’s so amazing at photography. I wanna be like him :)

But to get there I need to practice. Here’s what I learned from yesterday:

  1. Always have your camera on hand
  • Don’t be shy
  • Try to catch the small things
  • Don’t forget the food
  • … or the presents
  • Make sure you place yourself in a strategic place
  • I hope these tips can be useful for any of you. Looking forward to sharing some (hopefully) great pictures from my brothers confirmation with you!
