I haven’t really been into Selife-mood lately. To much going on. Me feeling like my soul would get lost if I snapped a selfie.

Then I found this Pink Panter on a flea market. Actually I found him two weeks ago but didn’t buy him. Then I went back – and guess what. She had forgotten it in her car – so it was all mine. My precious.

Isabelle meets @ Fotografiska


Tuesday we had an event that I called Isabelle Meets at the photographic museum in Stockholm – Fotografiska. My plan is to do these events on a regular basis – meeting interesting people and mix them up with cool companies.

Since I have been doing many fantastic collaborations this year I thought about getting them on board and since me and Jenny just published the book – it was a good starting point. So we invited a cool bunch of bloggers/instagramers/stylists and had a ball!
Check out #isabellemeets for all kind of photo’s from the day.

The day started with coffee and some cinnamon buns then we all got into the very stylish conference room called Annie (named after Annie Lebovitz).

Me and Jenny presented our book and how we started to work together. We started this blog in 2009

We also talked with Ellos about our collaboration. I’ve designed a kids interior collection that will be out after the summer. And Beckers was also there talking about paint.

We got a great lunch. Fotografiska really make an effort on the food department. So just go there, have a lunch and enjoy the view- it’s a spectacular place!

After lunch we got a tour around the house by Jan Broman – one of the brothers that founded the museum. I think lot’s of people just thought they where nuts starting this project just 4 years ago. But they made it! Look how stern me and Jenny look. If looks could kill and so on…

At the ground floor they have this large projector- sometimes there are nightclubs here – sometimes they rent this area out to big company happenings. It’s amazing with the moving images all over!

The best thing about the day was meeting everyone. Most of the gals we know only from the internet. I have seen their kids grow up and their style evolve but never met them before. That was fun! Here is Jenny with Johanna Gartmyr – a very talented designer. She makes great posters...

and she also designs for Swedish company Tretorn who makes rainclothes and boots. She designed these two! Thank you for the treat!

Here you can see Sofia from the amazing blog and web shop Mokkasin talking to Mimmi Staaf – who’s work you also have to check out! She has a store just outside Stockholm. Look at this little Beret stool she’s made

Then we just kept on talking all afternoon! and talked and talked and talked. I was so psyched about everything that happened that I forgot to take photo’s.
Luckily we where together with very good bloggers!

Sofia From Mokkasin did a fantastic post about our day - check it out here.

Emilia Henriksson filmed the whole thing – thank you so much <3!

Jenny from Hemtrender made a lovely piece about it.

And Mr PErswall put up some photo’s on their facebook.

Sofia & Therese from Homoner & Hemmorojder wrote great about it. They are so much fun!

When everyone left me and Jen just sat like this in the room for about two hours. Eating candy, talking about the day and watching the sun set over Stockholm.

13/52 Jenny From DosFamily

dosfamily-jenny-the-brandt

For a while now I´ve had no inspiration. I´ve felt dull and bored with my own thoughts. But this weekend my motivation came back to me with a vengeance and I´ve photographed like there was no tomorrow.

Yesterday I photographed Viola for La Petite Mag. As a result I´ve had flowers scattered all over the house. I used those left overs for todays selfie. I spray painted a motorcycle helmet I found in the basement and stuffed it with flowers.

The motorcycle helmet is spray painted in Frozen Strawberry by Montana
and the wall behind me is painted with Himlavalv by Beckers paint

I´m wearing an old mechanic uniform from Goodwill , US. That I also wore in this GIF, last year.

We  also talked about a wedding that Jenny and Gry went to – remember these images?Listen to the show with me on it – right here. Well in Swedish that is.

KIDSROOM- Dos Visit Cappi´s room on Manhattan

 Welcome to Cappi´s room. Use arrows to flip through the slideshow

Say Hello to Cappi!

This fun 5-year old is like a cartoon character.  She has a strong will and does things her own way. Like having breakfast in her raincoat or watching TV upside down. A bit like Pippi.
You can often find her wearing goggles or sunglasses even when she sleeps. Her favorite color is red and she likes Elmo a lot. She also uses the fridge as a home for her smurfs.
She lives on Manhattan and many of you might recognize her as Jennifer Jansch´s daughter. Follow their blog at Bag-All and @bag_all on instagram.

Jennifer and I were busy photographing their apartment when Cappi came home from a water fight in central park. I asked if I could photograph her in her room. Cappi ,still in her bathing suite, gave me  shoulder shrug that I translated as a “Yes” and headed upstairs. I hurried after her.
“I have a really big Elmo in my room that might be nice to photograph” she said.

Someone should make a movie about this girl she is very fascinating.

Cappi´s room is on the second floor in the apartment. There is a book shelf. A bunk bed and a wardrobe. A big yellow carpet covers most of the wooden floor and one wall is painted in bright green chalk board paint.

 Click the images for a larger experience. Enjoy.
