Queen @kenzas 💫 New edit from this amazing day. . I get so happy when I see influencers using their platforms to make a difference. When we had the big election in Sweden a lot of influencers made a statemant in their social media. It was brave, cause we have a lot of bajsnödiga people in Sweden who thinks you should just post pretty pictures and texts about how wonderful life is. . . The day I posted my opinions about the election I lost about 400 followers, it was not a coincidence. Staying true to myself and making an change (I received about 200 messages that same day) is so much more important for me. . . I'm confident that all influencers made a big change in the election, and I'm so proud about their bravery. . . Thank you Kenza and all others for raising your voices, you are true role models ⭐
Good morning world 💗 Today I want to share something else important for you, my most important things to be successful in life and work: . . ⭐ You must LOVE what you do. I mean seriously longing for it! If you don't and everything else is ok you should really reconsider a change. If you love what you do you have an extra power and halfway there 👊 . . ⭐ Stop comparing yourself to others.This is the biggest poison to your love and inspiration in your life. Stop following accounts that doesn't give you a sh*t but bad feelings. . . ⭐ Listen to YOU. I stopped listening to other people's opinions a few years ago, and it made all the difference for me. I can read gossip about myself but honestly I don't give a damn. That feeling is so important for me to continue towards my dream. . ⭐ Be prepared that it takes time, hard work and sacrifices. Success doesn't knock on the door, you have to fight for it, be patient, fail, try again, fail, try something else, and never stop. This is why so few people succeed, cause they give up. They are not willing to do the hard work. . . ⭐ Set up real goals. Don't just think it, write it down and set goals for 6, 12, 18 and 24 months. If you don't have goals your brain don't know which direction to go and you won't be motivated. . . ⭐ Be kind. To yourself mostly, but also to others. Don't trash talk anyone and be humble ❤ . . If you REALLY set your mind to these tips, I promise you will come a LONG way. These are the most essential things for me, and I will be happy to share more. . . Now go and do what you love, and don't you dare give up because other people think so 👊❤ I believe in you.
Flower tops ⭐ I started with these tops 1,5 year ago and it's so exciting to find this idea in other ways with other photographers 😍 . I get the question often How does it feel being copied all the time?. And as a teacher for so many photographers I think it's only natural to get inspiration from someone in the beginning. Honestly I'm so into my own work and I'm only happy to encourage so many people following their dreams. The time will come when everyone choose their own path of photography 📷 . . Since it's early morning in Sweden I would like to share a few tips to make your day better: . . ⭐ Don't snooze. This will not help you feel more awake. Just leave the bed! . . ⭐ Smile big when you open your eyes. This way you are telling the brain this is a good day. You choose the attitude of the day and how you react to things happening. . . ⭐ Give yourself TIME for things that's good for you. A long walk, yoga, praying, working out or a long breakfast. . ⭐ Leave time for gratitude and appreciate the small things. Don't compare to others and don't follow accounts that makes you feel bad 💗 . . Let's start this day you guys, you can do it! 👊 . #gravidfotografering #maternityshoot #pregnant #femaryah
After darkness comes light, also in my pictures 😂 . . The main question I've got after releasing Femaryah is Are you just going to take DARK pictures now?! And the answer is mjaaa as we say in Sweden. I will mostly publish darker pictures cause I LOVE the mystic feeling, but occasionally I will show some brighter pictures as well. Like this shoot, pastel dream from @bymalina together with light rocks, it would be a crime to darken it 🤷♀️ . . Now when Femaryah is out it's time to release some more online courses as well ⭐ I will launch internationally as well, and also release at least 3 new Swedish courses this fall/winter 📷 I've sold over 12 000 courses during the year and I really love to educate photographers 👊 . Would you like me to share some photo tips here as well? Maybe in video if I can keep the bird out of the frame 🦅 Let me know (if you want the bird in the video let me know as well). Okay that's the ordbajs for today (Swedish expression). Have a nice evening 😘 . #femaryah #bymalina #sweedlashes
Bed of flowers ⭐ . . Can't wait to meet baby Astrid tomorrow who was in this belly ❤ She is so cute that I will probably die a bit tomorrow 😂 I'm so excited to find a lot of new requests for Femaryah shoots after the weekend. The flowerbeds are popular and so stunning for every shoot 😍 . We are hitting the couch for the evening but need tips for new series! We just finished Handmaid's tale and I feel depressed cause I miss it so much. We also love series like GoT and Viking so hit me with your favs at HBO and Netflix plz 😘 . #femaryah #gravidfotografering #maternityshoot
Ohmygodness...This is the result from yesterday's shoot in Helsingborg. . I love this styling SO much and Emma is looking like a frekking queen 💫 I love this expression (aka the Femaryah expression) with a confident look. . I've never done a maternity shoot with a flower bouquet before, but I love to try new things, and this was just stunning! . I wish you the best weekend lovelies 😘 . #femaryah #gravidfotografering #maternityshoot
Today's braid (not) 🎇 Editorial for @hairtalkextensions . In Sweden I would be called Skalle-Per (character Bald-Per, opposite to Rapunzel you can say). I was blessed with the Scandinavian hair growth, without eyebrows and thick wavy hair 🤷♀️ But Bald-Per met Hercules so hopefully our children will get my boyfriends hair growth 😂 . From politics and life changing events (if you can call the tsunami that) to hair extensions. Life is full with different things and so is my feed... . I also realized that 44% of my followers wants me to publish videos of a toy bird rather than my pictures. Until now I have only showed this funny looking bird in my stories, but why not dress him up and take some Femaryah pictures as well? You guys seems totally crazy anyway so you might appreciate it? Let me know... . And sorry for just making stories in Swedish right now. I realized it's hard to amuse people in another language, but I will do better! Love from me and the bird 🦅
Wow. 468 shares on Facebook and 50 000 accounts reached at Instagram. My latest post was hard to publish. I didn't want to use my experience of the tsunami in the wrong way, but the response showed it was right. Thank you a million times for your kind words, I'm so thankful to have such sweet followers. So about the election in Sweden yesterday. I'm of course devastated that the racist party got 17% of the votes. But at the same time I'm relived, I thought the result was going to be worse. There are still hope, love will win. The young people will change the future and we will never back down against racists 👊💜🧡💛💚❤
Jag sitter på en moped. Jag är blodig och trots att det är ett inferno runt mig så hör jag ingenting. Jag blir avsläppt och buren till en madrass som placerats ovanpå matbord. Jag är 17 år och har precis överlevt en av våra tiders värsta naturkatastrofer, tsunamin. . Det kommer fram två thailändska kvinnor. De börjar snabbt med att vädra bomullstussar under min näsa för att underlätta andningen. Jag har svalt mycket vatten och annat skit som fanns i den 6 meter höga vågen. En annan kvinna börjar tvätta mina sår, hon hjälper mig varsamt ändra position på mina ben, och håller hela tiden en trygg hand på min arm. Det har bara gått 1 timme sedan vågen totalt förstörde hela Khao Lak, men invånarna mobiliserade snabbt utan att tveka. . En thailändsk man kommer med en pickup. Kvinnorna pekar på mig och pratar fort. De visar det öppna såret under mitt ben och mannen vänder bort blicken snabbt. De lastar mig på bilen och jag åker iväg. Jag kommer tillsist till Phang nga hospital. Ett litet sjukhus som är stängt på helgerna. Jag blir skickad till entrén i en rullstol. Jag blir direkt sydd med mitt stora sår bakom knäet, då jag förlorat mycket blod och det behövdes stängas snabbt. Jag var 17 år, helt ensam på ett sjukhus i ett land där få pratar engelska. Jag hade precis överlevt en tsunami och visste inte om min familj levde, jag var vettskrämd. . Sveriges krisberedskap kom inte i tid. Istället gick fattiga thailändare och lånade ut sina mobiltelefoner med kontantkort, de gav kläder, lekte med min syster och framförallt, de gav oss vård och räddade våra liv. . Vi var utlänningar, som blev behandlade som deras egna. Vi fick de fina sjukhussalarna, den trygga handen på armen och den viktiga vården. De hade kunnat prata om budgetar, att de inte hade råd eller plats för oss på de överfulla sjukhusen. Men det var en kris, och vi var människor precis som dem. . Det värsta som skulle kunde hända, hände min familj. Men vi hade skyddsnät när vi kom hem till vår villa i Båstad utan min ena syster. Vi fick stöd och hjälp att få leva vidare. Det är människorna som inte har det skyddsnätet som jag röstar för imorgon. För om vi inte har medmänsklighet i kris, så har vi ingenting.
First of all - THANK YOU for the massive support. Wow, I'm beyond words. . . Let me show you my very first Femaryah model 👊 The stunning @emmelypersson that were photographed in the beginning of August in Båstad. . . I got the idea to create this trademark a year ago, but I needed some time and courage to complete it, and to find a good name. Omg, the name was the hardest part! Then I had to be a little nuts and order all designer dresses and accessories (it's not normal to pay 500€ for a headpiece I think 😂)., but it's so worth it! I love to have a few really stunning dresses to offer my clients than many mediocre. . . This one is from the Swedish designer @idasjostedt, and the quality is stunning. It feels a bit strange to leave my old trademark Love by Emelie behind, but I know in my heart this is my mission. Right in time as well, since the Swedish election is getting closer, I don't have to say I vote for equality right? . . More pictures to come soon, you will find a lot at the new website as well, link in profile. Lot's of love and thank you again for your support! 💖 . #gravid #gravidfotografering #femaryah
It has been a process. To end something I started three years ago, to end Love by Emelie. The change was not easy, and it requiered a lot of time. But I have my heart somewhere else. I don’t just want to create nice pictures with nice light, I want to give something more to this world. My trademark has always been characterized by my values in different ways. Now I will create something bigger, something stronger. I created Femaryah – strong pictures with strong voices. . . I will now welcome all women, pregnant or not. We will create personal moodboards to every client, who will be given the opportunity to wear our new designer clothes and accessories from brands as Ida Sjöstedt, By Malina and Anna Campbell. The pictures will show a stronger expression, and have a sense of fashion, and the most important thing of all – they will give 5% to the organization Woman to Woman @kvinnatillkvinna. They give women all over the world a voice, and that means we wille give 625 SEK (68 $) for every Femaryah shoot. . . My heart will of course stay with my wedding shoots, and you will be able to follow my work at @lovebyemelie_weddings. The maternity pictures that I started to create in 2015 will now change, and I’m longing to show you all the work I’ve created with my amazing models. . LOT’S of love to my Femaryahs @emmelypersson, @kittytherose and @johanna_varvraa – you are POWER. . . HERE'S TO STRONG WOMEN, MAY WE KNOW THEM, MAY WE BE THEM, MAY WE RAISE THEM.
I GOT THE POWER 👊 This trip was all about self love, no more not feeling enough. I've had eating disorders for 14 years, and even if I'm 99% free from it today I still have days when that 1% feels like 100. And to be honest I've had a lot of these days this year, and I've been struggling so hard. Cause I know it's all in my head, and I decide which direction my thoughts take me. I know it's a terrible habit I must practice to avoid, but it's the hardest thing. So this trip was supposed to be just self love, and to dare to stand in front of the camera. No control, no portrait picture from above or silly looking expression, I wanted POWER. I know I reach out to so many young girls and I really want to be a good role model. Even tho I have to struggle sometimes I never put my value in my looks, and that makes the most change for me. So with this picture I want to scream out: FUCK the ideals, fuck the perfect picture how we should look and LIVE your life. Do what feels good, stop comparing yourself to others and set your value to your personality instead of your looks. Focus on the important things in life, and dare to meet those ghosts in your head, dare to do the opposite, and treat yourself with love, cause you deserve it 💖 Thank you my love for the picture and for all your love, you are the best! @lingmerthphotography
