Photographer, artist and storyteller
Hi, I am Maria.
I want to capture your story, and I want to show you just how beautiful your life is with all its ups and downs. I do not strive to capture the "perfect" moment, because I believe there is so much more beauty in the ordinary, and the imperfect moments of life.
A little about me..
I live with my husband, our two children, and two dogs.
I am an introvert. My little family is my everything, and we do almost everything together. I love being outdoors in nature and in the wilderness. This is where I feel most alive and at peace.
I have a master degree in sports physiotherapy, and a PhD from the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences. However, instead of pursuing an academic carrier, I stopped and followed my heart, and started my own photography business.
My love for photography started over 20 years ago. I still remember the day when I bought my first Nikon camera, a Nikon F90X. Back then the cameras were analog, and I absolutely loved working with film and in the darkroom.
Photography is my form of art, and I am drawn to capture raw and intimate moments in life. I want to create emotive and honest images that tell a story, your story, no matter whether that story is filled with love and warmth, or struggles and worries. I want my images to be filled with real and authentic moments and connection, and not forced smiles and poses. I want the people that I photograph to know and remember how loved they were, and how special that time in their life was. My children are my muse and biggest source of inspiration, and after becoming a mother myself I am especially drawn to capture the secrecy of motherhood and women during pregnancy, birth and beyond. I want my images to empower women. I absolutely believe that giving birth to your child is the most beautiful and powerful experience in your life, and definitively a moment that should be captured and cherished forever. fødselsfotografering nyfødtfotografering fødselsfotograf
