Those three words

“I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?” Snow Patrol 

Perfect day for editing, and planning upcoming shoots, next week is about to be quite amazing if everything goes well. I have been quite tired this week, because I haven`t really slept at all…  but today I am back ;) or my creativity is and I am dancing on the inside while I`m editing. Or I actually dance on my chair ( so happy that you cannot see me… ). There are these moments when life is pretty okay… nice things to look forward and those little voices in my head that once in blue moon tells to me that I can do this…Usually those voices only tells me that I suck :D

Love you guys <3


You don`t really see me


Throwback time ;)

Well… it is Thursday and I haven`t done throwback here for a while so… I have kept quite regular throwback post on Instagram, and I kind of like it. This one is simply one of my personal favs. I cannot remember have I shared this one here before, maybe I have… but yet, it is very dear to me. Candid shot, I think they did not even notice then that I took this shot, because I was the one who was shot for a newspaper article ;) Well… we have come a quite a journey from that moment, all of us… this was shot almost exactly 3 years ago. But this one I think represents the me as a photographer… I cannot really describe that in words, but photograph tells it.



Mother Autumn

I just love these Autumn colors… I am a Autumn child so I guess that is why this is my favorite season. We have been enjoying the most beautiful weather here in Finland and I don`t mind the cold. I am actually waiting for that first snow… yeah, I am crazy ;)

We had a beautiful maternity shoot with this lovely Mom few weeks back. I had a plastic bag on my lens (very thin and transparent) in this shot, to make the painterly blur effect straight in the camera. I really love this kind of experiments. And I am quite happy that I have discovered maternity shoots… or the Moms have discovered me :D

I hope you guys are having a good week, and I will try to be more social again…


Undisclosed darkness

“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” – Andy Warhol 

Yes Andy, that is one of the best quotes ever… Just let everyone be critics of their lives, and just focus what you are doing yourself and if it is something that you love, keep doing it…

I just write those things here, little reminders for me too. I often encourage others, and keep telling these things… and then I do just the opposite myself. How about you guys? Especially who are in some creative field? And others too. Tell me… are you confident about your craft? How do you deal with criticism? Does it get to you?

Just a curious me, little Wednesday mood going on ;)


Hold on tight

“Be brave enough to hold on to the hope that life will be beautiful again”

Some days I believe… and some days I don`t. Some days I feel like I do not have anything to offer to anyone. That I am just somehow stuck and I will never achieve my goals and dreams. But I have noticed more and more that I do not need much to get that inspiration again, seeing the beauty in life again… The other day it was heart shaped leaf on the ground, one day it was seeing 2 people in love… And yet again I keep going, believing…

Last week I got lots of nice exposure on Instagram, 3 features in a week… I was so happy, but… actually I was sad that I did not have really anyone to tell about those. But it gave a little confidence boost again, and it felt really good.

Let`s keep the faith, life will be beautiful…
