I am booking up quicker this year for Autumn sessions. I have limited availability on weekends and I’m completely booked from October 15 through November 15 for Christmas sessions. If you’d like an Autumn session in Finland, I recommend booking as soon as possible to ensure better choices for dates/times.
She will likely draw many references to a certain Harry Potter heroine, but this young lady has a loveliness all her own. This shoot was taken mid day in full sun – a challenge for a fair haired girl in black.

The train trestle – a site every Heinola resident knows well.
And later, the sun finally came out for us. These are at an area where a river turns into fast rapids.
And, of course, all that glorious fall color
This was under a train trestle – the new route linking Lahti to Helsinki. There was the most exquisite light down there.
And now, back to proofing last week’s sessions!
