To look at people is natural. To see who they are is human.

This curiosity has defined me since I was growing up in the South West of Sweden, when I became a journalist and during fourteen years as a photographer/photo editor with ABC TV. It's a belief that still drives what I do.

I've been lucky enough to shoot presidents, celebrities, news anchors, musicians, actors, and to see my work appear in, among others, Time, Newsweek, Vogue, People, Entertainment Weekly, New York Times, Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.

Now I'm a mother to two beautiful girls, and I run my business from home. But I still get the same thrill from each job, whether it's a wedding couple or corporate work, portraits, families or news. Because, for me, my job has always been about people, and the stories their faces tell.

Which is why taking pictures that bring us closer to each other isn't just my living. It's my joy.
