Hello & Welcome

So lovely that you are here! My name is Anette Selnes and I’m a photographer, stylist, recipe developer, and visual storyteller from Norway, Scandinavia.

On this website I’m sharing my passion for food and photography inspired by everyday magic, slow food, and the nordic seasons. My focus is on all the little things that make life big. 

Here in the north, we have four distinct and quite different seasons that inspire me and my cooking very much. I have come to love seasonal eating and harvesting what I can from nature’s beautiful pantry.
