Little Freya was just 8 days old when these photos were captured. I got to spend an afternoon in my studio with Freya, her mom, dad, and grandma, and learn all about the history of their family while shooting. Freya is such a beautifully unique name so, natually, I was curious how they picked it. Freya's dad, Robert, explained the comical story of how he initially wanted a boy. His mother is Danish so he really wanted to give his baby a traditional norse name in honor of her heritage. Thor was the intended name for a boy, but after they found out they were having a little girl, his heart swelled and he couldn't have been more happy with the surprise. In the end, they decided to name her after the norse god Thor's sister, Freya, and they've been overwhelmed with joy ever since.
Thank you Robert, Mackenzie, and Lene. It was so fun getting to know about your family.
