This summer my family and I were able to spend some time in Norway. My sister’s friend asked if I would possibly take some confirmation photos of her son. What a treat! I have so many places I would love to try out. I got my first wish: the old dock where the store was when I was a kid. Of course everything looks different now, but it was an awesome place to shoot.

Joachim was such a fun guy to photograph! He didn’t object to “stand there”, “move your foot” or “how about…?”. Thanks! You made my job even funner!

Here are some…I know…a lot…of favorites. Enjoy!

Congratulations Tonje & Nikke! Your wedding was beautiful and so were you.

The weather was cold and rainy almost the whole time since we got here. The tent you ordered came almost two days late and things started to get hectic. Your wonderful staff and friends came to help put everything together. We had a great time and it turned out to be a fun three days. Friday was kicked off with a gathering of all the friends and family that came to stay here on the island. Freddan and Natalie ++ cooked up the most wonderful clam and fish soup. Mmmmmm!!! We all had a wonderful time. Nikke & Krille played guitar and sang and the atmosphere was great!

We all awoke Saturday morning to the most beautiful weather. Everyone were amazed. The ceremony was beautiful followed by baptism for little Tindra Synnøve. Krille was the sponsor and I was the godmother.

We left the church and took a few pictures. Then all the guests were instructed to “hurry” back to the farm for the dinner. Not many knew that Tonje and Nikke had arranged for a helicopter to come and pick them up and make a great entrance at the farm. There were three seats, plus the female pilot, and I got to come along. Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was an amazing, did I say AMAZING, trip. We flew to the farm, but not everyone had gotten there yet so we circled the island and got a breathtaking view of it. Then the whole party were waiting and waiving as we came in to land down in the lower part of the field. As the bride and groom got out of the helicopter all the kids came running down the hill to greet them. It was a spectacular sight. Just like a movie. My dad came with the fourwheeler and Nikke and Tonje with three little boys drove up to the tent. Everything was perfect! The food was absolutely wonderful. Grilled whole lamb and pig.

Tonje left with the computer I could add photos to my blog with. I will post pictures when I get back to Spring Grove.
