I grew up in Denmark and have lived there for most of my life. My first interest in photography started in Highschool as I documented travels. I got sidetracked from photography while I studied at Copenhagen Business School and graduated with a Masters degree in Computer Science and Business Economics. I worked with e-learning, multimedia, IT project management and IT strategy for a while and the camera came out on bicycle vacations. Gradually I started taking more photos again as me and my husband had kids. In 2005 my husbands work took our then newly started family abroad and we have raised our 2 children in Poland, Slovakia, the UK, the US and Denmark where we currently live. These country moves inspired me to capture my surroundings as a way of communicating and understanding the differences in culture that I experienced. I started taking online photography courses and formed a photography group in Bratislava, Slovakia. In 2011 we created a photobook with the title “What 10 Women Saw in Bratislava”. When we moved to London, I took a 6 months long professionel photography course at the London School of Photography. An exciting program with lots of challenging  assignments. I started the photography collective Focusnomore with Chloe Lagier dedicated to our shared projects and in particular storytelling. Here we love to document how people choose to live, see www.focusnomore.com and www.makersofmarin.com

I love photography, I enjoy learning and being creative. When I am not photographing I enjoy doing various creative and DYI projects and I have a passion for sourdough bread baking, cooking, hiking, travel, roadtrips, art, beautiful functional interior design and architecture.

My other talents...

  • I can help you develop smaller websites using the Squarespace platfom
  • I am an organizer (i previously most often worked as a project manager and have managed 1 big house remodel and 5 country moves so far). I also love simple and functional interior design. I can help you make a plan for better organization, better use of space or plan a scandinavian style interior. 
  • I enjoy coaching and can help you if you want to improve your photography whether it is getting to know your camera better or learning to organize or edit photos on a smartphone or computer. I use Lightroom, Photoshop, On1 and various photography apps on my Iphone.

I'm am constantly striving to improve and expand my portfolio. If you are interested in modelling for a project in exchange for a portrait feel free to contact me too.
