It’s getting really cold outside. The colorful leaves, that made this autumn a true firework, have left most of the trees, but yet again we are entering a beautiful season up north!

Winter! Frost! Snow! Christmas! Candles! Dark! Cosy! Cakes! Hot-drinks! Music! And I could go on with key word, but I will not!

I just want to welcome you to Strai and to Le Petite Country Shop! We have the atmosphere and the most amazing surroundings here. It’s less than a 10 min. drive from Kristiansand center!

We are next to Drømmehaven, a flower and interior shop making the most gorgeous decorations for x-mas right now! They also have evening courses! Check it out!

In Le Petite Country Shop we have the gorgeous multi use designer Ltd #artscarf form www.schimjolie.com.

We co-operate with local hand crafters and have gotten hold of Mille’s handmade meditation candles.

The candles are made from the best raw materials, they are 100% natural consisting of bi wax and pure essential oils. You can massage the oil and wax on to your skin leaving it soft and smooth with a fresh scent!

In the knitted wool department, Karina has left some of her hand knitted hats for kids! They are super cute and absolutely one of a kind!

SchimJolie PhotoGraphy is a part of SchimJolie LifeStyleConcept! We are having so much fun with the new photo style called «HomeRun FamilyFun».

Make an appointment directly with us here at Le Petite Country Shop!

Velkommen – Welcome – Bienvenue – Hope to see you :)

Here are some of the photos taken during this wonderful week!

 

Home Run and Family Photo Fun

Collage1_72It’s really working out. At first I was not sure if it would be a good idea, but now I have no doubts anymore!

Mobile photo shoots, as in driving home to the motive, is the new thing for me! I love coming home to my friends and clients and save them the time and hassle it takes for the lot to pack, collect them selves and get going to a photo studio or location.

Every setting is individual and unique! And all they have to do is get dressed and be ready when we have agreed. Then I use only like 30 minutes of their time. And I must say, the results, so far, has turned out amazing!

SchimJolie PhotoGraphy is so much more though it’s less! Less in a good way! Less stress if you understand!

If you want to make an appointment,  just drop us a line on Facebook inbox!

We also have locations together with «Le Petite Country Shop» at STRAI next to Drømmehaven. Come visit us!

Here is a slide show from the family fun shoot:

 

 

 

 

Crab n’ Crayfish Chef

Oh! So SWEET a Niece!

Look at this!! Isn’t she great! This is my wonderful niece Lisa Anna: I got a phone call from my brother last week. He asked if I was available for an assignment because he had this brilliant idea for a picture he wanted in his new house!

And you know what?

As it happens, and as I told you in an earlier blog post, I will say YES when friends and acquaintances ask me to do a photo-job!

So here Lisa Anna and I are kind of cooking.… She is holding a crab to the left and a crayfish to the right! I’m holding my Leica M8, and the two of us are at least cooking together a picture…!!

I think the photo came out fantastic!

Bring them on these all these untraditional and fun assignments!

I LOVE IT!!

Old McDonald Had a Farm…

Farmer Family

….ia-ia-oooooo!

Yesterday I went to see a friend of mine called Netta! She has moved to a big farm at a place called Grødum!

She wanted some photos of her 3 children and all the animals: two horses, six dogs, one pig and at least one cat…

Well, we gave it a shot, and I tell you it was lots of fun, but very difficult to get a picture where everybody looked normal…but here is a few to illustrate the chaos! We had a good laugh, though :-)

Back In Business

Since we are back in Norway and planning to stay here, I thought to my self why not say yes when my friends and acquaintance ask me if I still do portrait photography.

In the future I will be including my expertise as a commercial portrait photographer into our LifeStyleConcept SchimJolie. I have decided to call it SchimJolie PhotoGraphy!

Once international – always international

Here are some portraits from my visit at Casa Timenes and the wonderful Eik Family

WELCOME TO SCHIMJOLIE & Le Petite Country Shop – Studio & Gallery

It has been a long time since last blog post, and it’s not because nothing has happened 😉 Too much has happened, but I will not go on about that now!

I would like to tell you about my day to-day! I’m sooooo excited!

I have cleared out the garage at Strai and me and Svein Eriks new «baby» SchimJolie LifeStyleConcept is about to open a place for the public!

I can’t wait. And with our tempo it’s no reason to wait! I think next week we are up and running! WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!

Everyone is welcome to see us and the Ltd #artscarf collection!

I might also take up my commercial photography and do some children and family portraits if anybody is interested?

Next to SchimJolie – Petite Country Shop I already have the most amazing flower and garden outlet «Drømmehaven» run by the sweetest and so friendly Kristin. She came with coffee to me as I was way down in all the crap and rubbish stored over many years in these three garages we cleared today!

Tomorrow I will paint the joint and then I will start decorating! Come and visit if you have the chance. I’ll bring the coffee machine tomorrow and there is always time for a chat!

The place will not be perfect at first but, but I need to get going and to get started, so I don’t worry, we’ll work it out as we move!

Life is too short to care about trifles :-) JUST DO IT!

So see you at Strai and at SchimJolie – Petite Country Shop – Studio & Gallery!

WELCOME – BIENVENUE – 歓迎

It’s only 10min by car from the center! Just saying!

Here are som photos of today’s progress :-)
