2012 – the best year of my life.

Another year is behind us. A really good one, maybe the best one ever (so far). For 2013 I will try to be more personal in this blog. I will take time to share my thoughts and give it a more personal touch. It feels a bit weird to share my thoughts for anyone to read, but I guess it also gives more interesting content to this site.

Something that struck me during last year is how travelling changes you as a person. When you are away from your every day routine you can take on any role you want and you can be who ever you want to be. This freedom changes you, it gives you room and space to grown in to the real you. Over the past year I have been thinking a lot about who I am and what I want to become. Any result, not sure. Only thing I know for certain is that I love stories, chocolate and high mountains. Cameras are pretty awesome too.

Looking back at the pictures from 2012 it makes me happy and grateful. But it also makes me think of all that I miss out on when traveling and living away from Sweden, my home country. Am I escaping reality or living the life I used to dream about? The price we pay is lost time with friends and family. Time that will never come back. So why are we doing it? Honestly I don’t know, maybe this is the only way we do know. I miss Sweden, but I also miss Switzerland when I am in Sweden. When we are traveling I miss both. First world problems I guess but you got to complain about something…

I would like to send out a big hug to all of you that have supported my photography through out 2012. I could not have come this far in such a short time without the help from all of you. Thank you. You are truly amazing.

A new year is ahead of us and I am pumped! Weddings are booked and I can’t wait to be part of all the love again!

Below are some of my favorite moments from travels and weddings of 2012. For once they are not in order to tell a story from start to end. Instead they are mixed up randomly, telling another story about the differences around in our world.

Happy New Year.

Best,
Stefan
