2017 – A Year of Change

000_2017_A_Year_of_Change

On New Year’s Eve 2016 I made one of the hardest decisions in my life: I resigned from my dream job. At this point in time I had taken a break from photography to go and work at Our Chalet, an international scout and guide center in the Swiss Alps. At first I could not believe my luck when I got the job! I was going to work for Scouts and Guides and give back to an organization that had given me so much in my life. I fell in love with the picturesque village of Adelboden, and I really loved all the amazing people I was working with. But after a year in the office I had come to realize that I did not love the job. I was working very long hours and I had very little time for other things. It didn’t matter that my office had the best view in the world, I just wanted to spend more time outside the office. I wanted more time for my photography adventures, more time for my friends and family, and more time for me. So I quit.

I had three months notice and some vacation days to use, so in the end I stayed in Switzerland for another four months. I landed in Sweden on May 10th and did not have any plans except shooting a wedding at the end of the month. I decided to look for a part time job while I was getting my business up and running again. Things happened very fast and on June 1st I started working part time at Scandinavian Photo in Stockholm. I became a kid in a candy store! Most of my summer days was spent in the shop, and my evenings and weekends was spent on photography, friends, family and myself. Fall came and so did more photo shoots. And slowly Stuudio Huusmann came back to life.

A year has passed since I decided to change things, and I really like where life is heading now. I look forward to new adventures, many fun photo shoots, and some lazy days in my little summer house in Roslagen just outside Stockholm. It’s gonna be great!

Below are my favourite snapshots from 2017. A big THANK YOU! to all my clients, family and friends for making this turbulent year a really good one!

Family Fun in the Forest

On a lovely autumn day I joined the Halson-Ingham family for a little mini adventure in the forest of Upplands Väsby. First we went on a short hike along Upplandsleden, where we found a beautiful spot with a view over lake Mälaren. Then it was time to make a fire, roast some marshmallows and have a cup of tea.

It was so much fun, I love hanging out with my clients like this! If you want me to join your family on a hike, on a boat trip, or on a sledging hill – let me know! I’ll be there, as long as you promise me to do as all other normal families and make at least 100 silly faces in front of the camera :-)

Elizabeth from Singapore met Daniel from Sweden while they were studying in Japan. They fell in love, stayed in love, and after being in love for ten years they decided to get married. The top secret elopement wedding took place in Stockholm with a ceremony at the City Hall. It was just the two of them, I got to both document the ceremony and act as a witness. It was a lovely day with many smiles and lots of laughter. Elizabeth and Daniel, thank you for letting me be part of it! I wish you all the best on your new path in life!

The engagement session without the engagement

engagement stockholm djurgården

Linda contacted me and said she wanted to surprise her boyfriend Markus with a photo session for their 5th anniversary. An engagement shoot, but without the engagement.

What a great idea!

We headed out to Djurgården, a green oasis in the middle of Stockholm. This was the perfect place to shoot the couple who met through work in the sustainability business. They took a stroll over the fields, had a cozy picnic, and at the end they did some “work” in their favorite habitat. It was a great evening!

Fast forward to 2017 and the couple is now getting married! One month from today I have the honor of capturing their big day. I am really looking forward to it!

Jorun the Explorer

The weather in Stockholm is very weird at the moment. We have snow and sunshine at the same time, and budding trees and flowers are fighting hard to grow in the the cold temperatures.

It was a very different story when this photo session took place. It was a warm evening in April with beautiful light, perfect for exploring the woods and taking some portraits.

I really hope the spring of 2017 will shape up soon, I want more sunshine and flowers!
