A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME


Earthy, emotive & timeless photography


I grew up in a house on a hill on a small Island in Norway. On the windy North Sea Coast. I spent my childhood in nature. I grew up wild and free, running in the mountains behind our house and playing with my sisters and our family dog. I would roam in the mountain for hours picking blueberries, or just walking along the beach. The beach is where I was the happiest. I still have such a strong connection to the ocean, and that's why I do the majority of my work at Deerfield Beach here in South Florida.

For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be an artist. I just wanted to create! I was inspired by the beauty of the Norwegian nature and the Norwegian painter Odd Nerdrum, with his dark and compelling portraits, as well as contemporary Norwegian Vebjorn Sand. As a teenager, my biggest dream was to study art in the US, and thanks to the most supportive parents, I was able to travel overseas at 17 to pursue this dream.

I received my A.S. Degree in Photography at The Art-Institute of Fort Lauderdale, FL and my B.S. Degree in Photography at Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara, CA. I opened my first studio in Fort Lauderdale in the 90's, and even back then you would find me doing a photo shoot at the beach at sunset, but boudoir photography was my jam at that time!

Today, I'm the mamma to the most wonderful teenage son. I was meant to be a mom and it shapes everything I do, especially my photography. Watching my son grow up so fast is a bittersweet feeling, and the comfort that photography is providing is priceless! Being a mom has taught me the importance of capturing the little details and the "in between" moments that are all too fleeting.

Your photo session with me will be fun and easy going. We'll capture the moments that show how you, your children and family interact when you let your cares go and you just enjoy time together.

I work hard to make every gallery evoke a truly heartfelt and wonderful feeling, and my goal is to capture your most precious moments and preserve them in a beautiful gallery for you. When I'm trusted to photograph your family, you can be sure I will put my whole heart and soul into it.

Let's get started!
