Welcome to my site!

Who am I?

My name is Marie Charlotte and I am a 32 year old mother of two young children, James aged 8 and Stella aged 3. My kids and I moved from Chicago, United States, in 2016 after 8 years of living abroad. I had been working part time as a photographer since 2011 and while I was loving my life over there, I was homesick and missing my family in Norway. In addition to this my kids were getting to a certain age where I really had to make my decision.

So I did.

For two years I have been working in northern Norway as a photographer. I photograph weddings, events, families and children for the most part. I really love my job and I think implementing the knowledge I have from my background in photography will be beneficial in some ways as I embark on this creative journey as a full-time student at Noroff School of technology and digital media.

I have always been creative, and ever since I was a child I have been drawing and painting and just really enjoying the process of making things and seeing them come alive. I also love working with people, and it has been so rewarding to give my clients their finished photos and seeing how happy they are with the result. Photography has given me a purpose and now I am looking to expand my horizons with a degree in Graphic Design.
