On my blog I share all of my latest photoshoots, as well as my thoughts and musings on life and all of the ups and downs that that entails! Grab a cup of tea, a fluffy blanket, and cozy up with some of my blog posts!

hygge familiebilleder til juletid

Playfully Jeanette dabbed som flour on Martin’s nose. He returned the favor, and the kids started laughing at their parents and covered their own noses in snow-white flour as well.
