Spring in Sweden – April 2014

VÄLKOMMEN to SWEDEN! ( and I thought German was difficult, take a look at some of these words :)

Yes, another one off my bucket list. This past weekend my boyfriend Matthieu,  our friend Ben and I travelled to Gothenberg, Sweden to visit our friend Patrick who is there completing his masters in Business and Design,  and to celebrate Easter and his Birthday all together! I am not sure what I was really expecting, but Gothenberg and it’s surrounding southern coastline was much different than I thought. The architecture in the city was more European influenced then I imagined and the city has so much flare, colour and design elements everywhere. It is no wonder they are such trend setters in the world or art and design. Yes this is the land of IKEA and VOLVO !

We were blessed with extremely warm weather ( the Swedes were calling it their Swedish Summer ) and to think I packed only wool socks! If you have the chance I would highly suggest visiting this area. The city centre is filled with stores, fresh food, fish and friendly people and the coastline villages, harbours and islands offer sun, fresh air and open views. If I could compare it to any other place I would say Newfoundland, Canada. A huge thanks to Patrick for being such a great host ( and for giving up his bed for 3 nights) and to Malin for showing us the Swedish side of things. Enjoy the photos everyone.

My approach to photography is simple and pure. I use only natural light to create an image; and work hard to develop an artistic photo, whether it be for a client or as a self project. I do not care about staging shots, excessive make up, and set ups. I capture what is there, with love for that special moment. With an advanced diploma in photography from Canada, I choose to follow my dream to work as a freelance photographer. With over 10 years in experience, I can capture your special moments, smiling faces, products or food in a simplistic, colourful and uncomplicated way. I photograph with my heart and believe in sustainability, conscious consumption and responsibility. When you book a photography session, purchase an image, or participate in a workshop or retreat, you are supporting social organizations and projects. I run my small business on green electricity, all print material is climate-neutral and supports other charitable projects for people and the environment. This is a very important concept for me to follow. Every daily decision and choice we make, has the potential to create a cleaner and happier community and world. If you are interested in purchasing fine art photographs or my cookbook, hoping to have images taken or just want to connect, I am happy to make a new friend.
