Listen!

One of the most rare but beautiful things in life is the ability to listen! Its not when youre nudging with your head while the other person is speaking, its not when youre already having thousand thoughts in your mind what to answer when she is finished. Its listening with the intent to understand! I find it hard but also so important and so fascinating when the other person is really with you with all their cells and moleculs! Its like, you can trust your whole being to that other person, or, you become as one. Its like, theres no need for the words anymore because sometimes presence, breathing and feeling the other’s soul is all that you need to really understand each other!
And oh, how much our bodies have to say, if we really listen!

Thank you, Universe, for the acrobats

So grateful for having the chance of binding two things what my soul loves the most – photography and acroyoga!


5 years ago I wouldnt have guessed I end up here – as looking myself, being a flexible yogy girl, travelling around the world, taking photos of wonderful athletes who I can call my family of the Universe!!!

Being a freelancer is not always easy but it sure gives me the full freedom to do whatever I want, where ever I feel!
So, thank you, Universe, for the acrobats! ❤️❤️

Love is free

About my exhibition in Tartu Print museum.

Fw months ago I had an exhibition in the print museum of Tartu. For that reason I made some nude photos of my 2 very close friends Neidi and Rauno. The exhibition was called “Love is free” It actually included only one photo, which you may find below.

The idea of this exhibition was to show freedom. I turned it to an angel. As I am into nude photography, I used half-nude angel representing love and freedom. As the theme was called “conflict”, we had to present our idea put on paper but in conflict of how it is shown. I showed that pure, free angel in the wooden cage (which I made with my own hands). And I presented it like that:

“Love ends where the limits start. Sometimes we want to own other people. We want to keep them close, next to us. Often we dont even notice how the most sincere wishes or acts takes away other people´s freedom. Love IS free!”

Fashion photography – acessory with a story

Artist: Erinn M. Cox (https://www.facebook.com/erinnmcox.artist/)
Make-up: Kristin Kongi (Make-up artist Kristin Kongi)
Model: Carolin Arnold
Photographer and stilist: Kristin Hansen

The goal of this project was to tell the story of this neclace which was deisgned by Erinn. And the story wasnt an easy one.
Erinn almost died on 2004 which influenced a lot her life. This specific work talks about our phisical and mental wounds. We all have them, some will heal and some not, some will grow back together, not leaving a mark and the other ones will leave a big mark so you will never be exactley the same.
This was my explanation of how I see her work and my tries to put all this into the photos.
I am so grateful for this experience, also grateful for everybody who helped me through this project!

Nude photoshoot in the Studio

Few months ago I took an intensive course from my university in Estonia for photographying nudes.
The result is here. I find it extremely beautiful and artistic to take photos of a naked person. Our bodies have so much to tell, we shouldnt be ashamed of it because its who we are! Specially a body of a woman – its like a mountaineous ground, which curves are changing spontaneously. Changing the light even a tiny bit, changes the whole composition! Theres so many possibilities..
I could say that it was the beginning of something big for me, something what my heart beats for now. I was´nt considering myself as an artist before but this field is definitely something I would like, I already have and I definitely will work more in the future. So stay tuned, some more projects are already waiting to be shared!
