Your first question might be ‘What is Hyggelig?’

Hyggelig ( hew-ger-lee) is a Danish word. While theres no direct translation into English, it’s meaning can be said it is all things loving, intimate & comfortable. Our tattoesque Swallow is something else that represents love, loyalty & travel but always returning back to home shores.

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

We are a little bit different but we are about documenting whats real.

That love, your bonds, those smiles and those big puffy heart moments.

So you want to know a bit more about me? I’m Hyggelig + more.. My husband and I have been married for almost 5 years and we have 5 fur children. We live in a half renovated house. When its finished we hope to have skirting boards and an amazing vintage, retro, industrial Scandinavian styled home… or something closely related! Throw in a love for all things music, travel and rock n roll. A dash of sunshine on a Sunday afternoon with good friends, family, a cider and some amazing food and you have me.

Ps Salted Caramel is my undoing
