Never knew it could be this cold in the U.K.

A very late happy new year and welcome to 2018!
Honestly, it’s too windy and cold where I’m located in the U.K. and it’s not very pleasant! I very much prefer the cold and snow of Sweden over this.

I’ve been very busy over the past few months, so obviously my blog became a bit… neglected. Not something that I had planned, but it just happened. I’ve been traveling, working, not being happy in work, and just trying to figure out what to do with my time. So, there are some exciting news.

I’ll be attending a workshop in September with one of my favourite photographers. Exciting!
I’ll be shooting a gig in Manchester soon, so keep an eye on this page and my Instagram.
As of February 2018 I’m focusing on my photography and setting up my Etsy shop unless some super exciting opportunity comes along.
I have several exciting photo sessions planned.

So, things are looking good for 2018! From February I’ll be available for bookings again.
Here are some photos from my newly created Instagram account:

Right. I’m going to have lunch now while studying some HTML and after that I’ll be going through my old photo archives. Wishing you all a lovely day and an amazing weekend!

Memories from a Swedish dog park.

Good evening! More photos from a couple of years ago.
The first photo, which is of a shar pei mixed breed, is my dog Metalica who is currently staying with my Mum in Linköping. We had a few good experiences in the dog park, but some dog owners were irresponsible and let their pets bully others, especially if their own dog wasn’t fixed. I decided to stop taking her to the fully fenced parks after an American Akita tried to spray her at one point to show his dominance and a young but much larger male dog wouldn’t leave Metalica alone and I had to go between them (Metalica’s fixed) due to the other owner just sitting there. Ugh, people need to be kind to their dogs, but also show some leadership.

The dog below is Amber, she belongs to a friend of mine. Both Amber and Metalica were adopted from Spain, but different shelters. I believe that she’s a mixed breed of podenco.

I’m absolutely in love with the post-processing of these photos. ♡ Seeing these really makes me want to take my camera with me to the closest park in Liverpool and take photos of dogs!

Visiting Linköping.

This past weekend J and I visited my family in Linköping, Östergötland.
There was a snow storm and the train trip to Linköping was an absolute disaster, but after about 4½ hours we got to the city.
I took this opportunity to take some photos of Metalica, who was being a really good girl and didn’t bark at J at all and even allowed him to pet her.

It was really bad lighting in my Dad’s apartment so the quality of these photos is terrible (ISO 2500, anyone?), but I’m still pleased that I got some new photos of my favourite girl. ♡
