Your first question might be "What is Hyggelig?" Hyggelig (pron. hoo-ger-lee) is a Danish word. While there’s no direct translation into English, it’s meaning can be said as all things loving, intimate and comfortable.  You know those moments that bring a happy sigh & big smile? 

Our tattoesque Swallow is something else that represents love, loyalty and travel but always returning back to home shores.

Both encompass so much of what we love and want to share about life and our photography. You’ll discover this as you explore our galleries, follow our work, or get to know me, Janet, as a person.

Let us capture your HYGGELIG moments.
