Urban Stavanger // International Portrait Photgrapher

As much as I love photographing people on the beautiful beaches of Norway and the incredible mountains and fjords, once in awhile I get someone who wants an urban feel to their portraits. It's refreshing! It's inspiring! Tomas needed some lifestyle portraits so we hit up the awesome streets of Stavanger, which lends itself to some pretty awesome looks. The creative graffiti from the Nu Art Festival is so freeking cool and I always find myself surprised when I find a new wall with artwork on it. It's not everyday that you'll find a basketball player in Scandinavia either. ; ) Thanks for the adventure and being yourself Tomas!

A Saturday afternoon in Kristiansand // Family Photography

I can't believe how big Knut has gotten! Remember his newborn session? I made a trip down to Kristiansand to visit this adorable family. We lucked out and had a BEAUTIFUL sunny afternoon with the light at the beach juuuust right. Of course all this 1 1/2- year-old wanted to do was go into the water so we all definitely got wet. Actually I was over taken by the waves and sacrificed my body for my camera. haha. It made for a perfect opportunity to head back home, change clothes, and snap a few extras in the backyard.

The day Alaric was born.

July 4th was extra special this year.  Kelly, my twin sister, after 41 hours, gave birth to the sweetest little boy.  Alaric Scott Vredenburg.  The story goes that since Kelly is my twin, Alaric is sort of, actually, genetically, basically 50% my baby.  :)  There is Dad, Mamma, and "Mamma D."
Kel was so excited to bring Alaric into our world and had a natural birth. That's right...no pain meds!!!! Kel is one tough mamma. She also had the best doulas ever, her husband, Ryan and me there to help and support her! She handled that pain like a superwoman, but watching her go through labor was one of the hardest things I've witnessed.  She is amazing.
There is so much to say about her, Alaric, Ryan, the doulas, natural birth and labor but I honestly have been sitting here writing and rewriting. I can't put it all into words, so the photos will have to tell a little bit of the story.  

I feel so lucky and fortunate that I was able to be there for my sister and be a witness to Alaric's birth. I needed to be there to watch this transformation and big moment of life for my sister. I needed to be there during Alaric's first breaths, first diaper, first bath, first snuggle with mom and dad. He's changed our world and I am so proud to be his "Mamma D."
Thanks to Stephanie & Angela who helped so much, took care of kelly, and also took precious photos of me so I could be in the moment too!  :)
