My grandmother gave me the name of a flower. I feel home in the woodlands and am unbelievably grateful for this beautiful planet we get to call home. My life was always about adventures and nature as I discovered the world in a cozy camper with my family when I was a child. One of my most treasured memories is a summer in Sweden. All the photo albums keep these feelings forever in my heart. I like the loving smell of the woods, the crisp air on top of a mountain, sleeping under the stars in our rooftop tent, freshly baked applecake from my great-grandmothers apple tree and the simple life. You can always make me the happiest soul on earth with a good cup of peppermint tea, oatmeal with lots of cinnamon and a pumpkin-vanilla scented candle.
I love to discover lonesome places on earth and experiencing something new every day. Fresh air, the seasons, waves, the mountains.. you name it. I was already living in Canada and hosted open air music festivals to bring people together to celebrate life while feeling the grass under their feet. In this stage of life I never thought I would ever hold a camera in my hands to tell stories about peoples lives. Now I can''t imagine working on something more meaningful than a wedding celebration. It's all about the people that are close to your hearts in your life, all the little gestures and feelings of excitement and the scent of love in the air. Digging deep into your story to understand your path, heartbeat and what makes you who you really are fuels my inspiration.
It's always an honour to teach other emerging photographers and creatives how to chase their dreams and build trust in themselves.
