Now reserving W E D D I N G S | E N G A G E M E N T | M A T E R N I T Y | N E W B O R N for 2018!
I am a newborn & maternity photographer at heart but also love to photograph couples in love during their engagement and wedding. My style is simple, natural and ethereal. I believe that less is more and the emotional connection between mama & baby or husband & wife are the ones that will last forever and make for timeless, classic imagery. Your tiny little baby will only be that small for a very short time so let’s freeze that moment with images that will last a lifetime.
I grew up in Sweden with a dad who loved landscape and other non-people photography. My mom was a creative who loved sewing and knitting. Even though neither are with us anymore, their love for being creative is very much alive inside me and I miss their love and support daily.
I moved to the US in ’92 and never moved back. I am now married to my best friend Eric and we have a sweet, loving little boy (born in June 2010) named Elliott. We live by Lake Norman just outside of Charlotte. I love the quiet of a small town feel yet we are close enough to the city to have all amenities. We very much enjoy the lake and Elliott is learning to waterski.
I have always loved photography and got my first film camera around 8 years old. We had a darkroom in the house and would spend lots of time in there developing pictures with my dad. It was no surprise that when Elliott was born I took tons of pictures of him and fell in love with newborn photography. Looking back there are not a lot of pictures with all of us in them so I always encourage parents to get in the picture.
I photograph macro and stills as an inspiration and therapy
I am inspired by soft textures, nature and beautiful light
