Simple beauty...

There is something so beautiful about the human face and this girl here has a stunning face, I have shoot her a few times but these photos of her are one of my favourite, so clean and simple and they show her beauty so well. There is nothing to distract you, no fashion clothes, no fancy accessories or even incredible landscape, just this girl and her beauty.

Dínamíska Dúóið

This last Sunday I photographed two girls I really like, they are a part of an Icelandic band named Reykjavíkurdætur, it's an all girl rap band, here is a video of there first song if you are interested in taking a look. All of the girls are so talented and so fun to watch but I really wanted to get to know these two, so I asked them if they would like to come for a photo shoot with me and luckily they said yes.

The two girls I photographed are Ásthildur and Þórdís and they are both really nice and have really cool and interesting styles.

My friend Ástrós once again helped me with make up and styling, I always come to her first if I am doing a photo shoot, she helps me so much and makes my pictures look better every time.

When the three girls came to my house I could hardly see my furniture because my living room was filled with clothes and we had a lot to go through before we went downtown to shoot, but it was fun as always picking out the outfits and it was only hard because we had so much to choose from and we really where not sure if we could limit them to just a few outfits...

but we did and went to downtown Reykjavík to shoot. I had a few places picked out already so everything was great and we had a lot of fun together and ended at the ice-cream shop.

Here are the pictures.

I have been photographing with my phone ever since I got my iPhone last autumn but I have been doing it more often these last weeks or months and I have really started to like it.

I love Instagram, I think it is a great way to follow photographers and discover photographers you haven´t seen before and not just photographers for that matter a lot of people have a very fun and interesting Instagram account. These last few months I have spent more time on Instagram than Facebook, it's more fun.

I really like photographing on my phone, I don´t carry my camera on me everyday and it is nice to go for a walk with out it and still be able to take interesting pictures and what is even more fun, you can post it right away and get likes and comment with in a few minutes (not even that sometimes). I also take pictures with my phone that I would never take with my camera, I don't grab my camera to take pictures of my food or to photograph my and my boyfriends toes but it is fun ... I like food photos.

So anyway I have started to put a little more work in my Instagram account but not to much "work" it is still just snaps of my day to day life. If you would like to follow me on Instagram you can find me under the name @heiddisgudbjorg, I hope you will.

Here are a few of my photos.

Baby Girl

I had the privilege to photograph a three weeks old girl yesterday and what a beauty she is.

I photographed her parents wedding little more than 9 months ago and now I had the pleasure to take some photos of their beautiful girl and also their son, they make such a pretty family it is so fun working with them.

 The little girl was not sure she wanted to be photographed but I think I won her over and I am so happy about the result, I could not wait to go home and work on the images and now I cant wait to show you some of them. It´s not hard to get lovely pictures of such a lovely girl.

5°N RFF 2014

I was at Reykjavík Fashion Festival today at Harpa, the first show started around 11:00 am and the last show started a little after 18:00 pm so it was a whole day event and what a day!

As an employee at Eskimo Models I have been working a little to prepare this day so I was exited, all though my work was so little compared to what a lot of people have been doing for the past weeks and months to prepare, but I was exited to see our models. 

This is my first time on RFF and I had a lovely time. There were 8 shows and very talented Designers. The first show was Farmers Market, I really liked their show, the clothes were beautiful and the models amazingly good looking and walked so well (a little slow but I kind of secretly liked that). I loved the ending where they all came together and stood at the end of the runway almost like posing for a family photo.

Ziska was next, I really like the prints in Ziskas show and the edge and I really liked the strong models, it was really good. Then there was Magnea, I really liked the light show, it was very funky and fun.

Ella was last before lunch and wow that was a show, loved the beginning when five models came out all together with a very strong walk and the smoke in the background it was amazing. And the clothes where beautiful. 

First after lunch was Rey, that was one of my favourite, the clothes where so lovely and beautiful and the models looked so good, amazing show.

Then there was Sigga Maija, In her show was this one jacket I really liked, it was a leather and fur jacket, it look cool, I would like to try it out. After that came Cintamani, I was kind of surprised by there show the stylising that Anna Clausen did was very good and the show was good. 

Last came JÖR by Guðmundur Jörundsson, everyone was waiting for this and it was by far the show that most people attended, the atmosphere was energetic and the music consumed you, the clothes where fantastic and the models where awesome. A great show.

All in all it was a great day of fashion, great shows, great companions, good whether, good wine. I had a lovely day. Thanks everyone.

610 photos

A couple of weeks ago i shot 1662 photos in two days out of all those photos I had to choose 610, on those 610 photographs are images of 61 girl, ten photos of every girl.  This is a part of a course for young girls, I do this twice a year and always have fun doing it.  I have only 1 and a half hour for each group and there are around 20 girls in each group. So it is a lot of work but it is work that I like. The girls always love it too and they are so cute. I wanted to show you some of the photos I took.

Dea Magazine

The sixth issue of Dea Magazine came out last week and my fashion spread in it so now I can show you the images I was telling you about in my last blog.

The team I worked with was so great I want to work with all of them again and I am sure I will, it was a long day but so fun and we all worked well together. We shot in a parking lot with dark walls and a very raw environment but there was also a very orange room that we thought would be a fun background, and it was.

here is a link to the magazine ... http://issuu.com/deamagazine/docs/deamagazine_6

I am happy about the outcome and hope you are to, here are the images.

I'm the editor of an online fashion photography magazine named Dea Magazine and decided to shoot a photo-spread myself for the next issue that will be out on friday. I don´t usually shoot for the magazine myself but its been a while since I shot fashion so I decided to do it this time.

We where working around 5 hours and it was a very fun day. Styrmir Kári, photographer assisted me on the shoot and shot some behind the scenes clips that I will post later.

Hugrún & Kalli

Earlier this summer me and my boyfriend, Styrmir Kári (styrmirkari.com) shot a beautiful wedding. The bride and groom, Hugrún and Kalli got married on the 13th of July in Oddakirkja in south Iceland.

We showed up early and where with them the whole day and it was wonderful. The couple was stunning and their little boy so cute.  The ceremony was very lively with kids and laughter and the reception was great.

I wanted to share some of the photos with you, I hope you love them as much as they did.
