In this category you’ll find everything that doesn’t belong in another category 😉 Everything about my life as a mom of Liv, wife of Denny and all the brain waves I have. If I have time 🙂

Antibodies  Yesterday I had an introductory meeting with a couple for birth photography. The woman was pregnant with her third child and told me that this child was very strongly desired. She and her husband already had 2 children and …

Imagining I don’t know how it is with other couples, that moment that you decide to go for it. How was it for you? My imagination takes flight; what will she (yes, I imagine in the feminine form 😉 ) …
