Mie haluan esitellä teille aivan mainion aurinkosäteeni Pyryn. Hän oli niin iloisella ja aurinkoisella tuulella koko kuvauksen ajan. Yksi lempparikuvista on, kun hän on äitinsä Jaanan sylissä ja on nostanut yhden sormen ylös. ihan kun olisin äsken häneltä kysynyt, että miten vanha olet ja hän osoittaa sen sormella. Tämä oli täysin sattuma, mutta sopii mielestäni hyvin yksivuotiskuviin. Suvilahdesta suunnattiin studiolleni, jossan sitten Pyry pääsi maalaamaan ensimmäisen taideteoksen. Kuinka moni yksivuotias voi sanoa maalanneensa noin kahden metrin kokoisen teoksen? Hih. Pyry voi. Myöhästyneet synttärionnittelut vielä Pyppelle!

I’d like you to meet Pyry. He’s just like a ray of sunshine. Isn’t he adorable? One of my favourite pics is the one of him in his mother’s arms; he’s pointing one finger up to the sky. I almost got the feeling that he knew that we were taking pictures in celebration of his first birthday. I thought that was a cool coincidence. Things got really wild when let him do some finger painting in my studio. He was so excited. And I loved taking these photos. We had this photo session on October first, and Pyry turned one on the 21st of October. My belated birthday wishes to Pyry!

Ihan muutama hassu kuva tuli kuvattu Tukholman viikonloppureissulta tuossa reilu kuukausi sitten. Kävimme katsomassa Suomen Mainosvalokuvaajat ry:n jäsenien kanssa valokuvanäyttelyitä. Lähinnä sinne veti valokuvaaja Robert Mapplethorpin näyttely hänen tuotannosta, mutta ihastuinkin Martin Bogrenin Lowland kuviin. Ja Midnight in Paris tuli katsottu. Ihana elokuva. Suosittelen!

Just a very few pics i took of my trip to Stocholm. I went to see Mapplethorpe’s exhibition at the Fotografiska, but I found his exhibition much more interesting.

My oldest daughter Merili knitted some tiny pieces. I collected these pieces together and made a nice headband out of them. It was super easy to do. Perfect for photography props and everyday wear! Have a great weekend. p.s. I bought this beautiful old chair today at here.

Such a lovely family! These photos were taken at Yyteri, one of the most well-known beaches in Finland. Johanna, the mother, is also a photographer. I was absolutely thrilled when sent me an email, asking if I would like to do a family photo session for her and family. I was honored and moved by her request.

We decided that I would drive to Yyteri to do the shoot because they live nearby and the place is simply amazing with its sandy dunes. As it turned out, the day was rainy and windy. In fact, it was already raining when I got there after three hours of driving. On the road I worried about the weather; I even called to find about the local weather. I was told that the sun would soon come out. When I arrived, however, the rain was still coming down. So, we spent half an hour in the golf club café and waited for the sun. The sun finally came out, though there was still a light rain. In spite of the water, we took our chances and began our session.

I was well-equipped with props: a chair, balloons, vintage cameras, an old gramophone, vinyl records, blankets, and some hand-made flags (by me). The whole family was committed to making a good photo shoot, so it was tremendously easy and fun to work with them. They were extremely relaxed, happy, and I could see that they are a very close-knit family. The session really didn’t feel like work – I felt like one of the family. They sat on the Kallo rocks and pretended to listen to the old gramophone and played a game on the beach. Erika kicked off her boots and ran into the water with her bare feet.

Karkkia silmälle. Ne neuleet, värit ja kaikki. Jonnalla on silmää väriyhdistelmille. Suloiset tytöt ja Alvar. Ehkä joku saattaa jopa muistaa Alvarin “Meidän Perheen” lehdestä…bloggasin silloin kuvia siitä tänne.Kuvia lehdessä:

Pari päivää ennen juhannusta studiossani oli täys kaaos. Kauniita huonekaluja, ihania kippoja ja kuppeja ja ne taivaalliset Jonnan suunnittelemat ja ideoimat…tyynyt, torkkupeitto (heti kun saan vähän enemmän aikaa teen kyllä sellaisen), lankakori, istuinpehmuste ja raitamatto. Oikeastaan innostuin tämän kuvauksen myötä niin paljon, että juhannuksena aloin kutomaan Alisalle neuletta….no, juhannus loppui, mutta kesä jatkui. Jannen sisko kävi meillä toissapäivänä ja näki neuleen eteisen kaapin päällä :” Ai, sulla on se vielä kesken =)”
