Some weeks ago I did this test shoot in Malmö with Frida TW from Sweden Models. I styled her in garments and jewelry that I was able to lend from the online vintage store Odd lovin' I wanted to keep it really natural so I hardly used any make-up. Back in the days I did a lot of these kind of photoshoots and Frida reminded me of how fun it is to be creative without no real purpose or client.

How different life can be just from one year to another. Now that my mind is not clouded I can see the beauty around me, how summer brought everything back to life. The smallest thing brings a smile to my face and I can feel it comes from within, it's pure. I surround myself with people I care for and then you get happiness in return. I am working a lot, don't think I ever been this busy in spring and beginning of summer ever before. The confirmation I get from clients is just wonderful. It's like we are exchanging positive energy and it's a constant reminder of why I love doing what I do.
The other day I celebrated midsummer in a beautiful house in the countryside. This last year there is especially two women that have, in a lovely way, come into my life and this day I got to spend it in the company of both of them. First there is Minna, who together with her husband and daughter lives in this wonderful house you see below. She has an online vintage store called Odd Lovin'. I adore her and since we share the same love for vintage we sometimes do these photography projects together. I am looking forward in getting to know her even better, she has a beautiful soul.
Then there is Karolina that I met in a park in Malmö a little bit more than a year ago. Our love for horses was the first thing that made us connect but it turned out to be so much more that we have in common. We share the same morals in life and we have the same kind of humor. Karolina makes me laugh a lot and she is important to me. She speaks her mind, we don't always agree but our conversations is always a fresh breath of air. Lately I started taking photos of her and midsummer was no exception. Minna styled her in true Odd lovin' flair and we went around in the surroundings close to the house. I love being creative and especially when it's together with two people I like so much. I had such a wonderful Midsummer...

Today it's midsummer in Sweden, one of our absolute favorite holidays. Today we will eat raw fish, drink pure alcohol and wear flowers in our hair. Some of us will put 7 different flowers under our pillow in the hope of dreaming of the person we are gonna romantically share the rest of our lives with. Basically it's a kick-ass day! Before I head to the countryside I would like to share this beauty story that I shoot a few months ago with you. It's was the first time I photographed Frida and I feel in love with her look right away.

So some say love is a burning thing
That it makes a fiery ring
All that I know love as a caging thing
Just a killer come to call from some awful dream
And all you folks, you come to see
You just to stand there in the glass looking at me
But my heart is wild, and my bones are steel
And I could kill you with my bare hands if I was free
