I have lived in Australia for almost 12 years now and every time I go back to Estonia it seems to be a bit more special again. This time we stayed for a month and wow, wasn’t that the fastest 4 weeks ever:) So many people to visit and so many places to see!
Kerli has been a devoted fan of my work for years now. She asked me to photograph her family probably about 4 years ago for the first time. We finally made it happen this time around and I couldn’t be happier. I suggested to do the shoot in a bog in Southern Estonia as I had visited it many times and had always wanted to use it as a backdrop for a photo shoot. As it turned out, Kerli’s husband Raimo had grown up in the same area, so they jumped on the opportunity.
This family of four have had more than a fair share of grief in their lives, so I felt extremely happy to be able to create some lovely memories for them.
Thank you so much for the time we spent together. Please enjoy the photos:)
