Sponsor Spotlight + Giveaway: Kanelstrand

This giveaway is CLOSED. The winner was #32, Jenni.
I’m so happy to introduce you guys to Sonya, of Kanelstrand today! She is an amazing photographer! I really enjoy the surreal feeling her photography gives me.

My name is Sonya and I live in a pine forest by the sea. That is where my inspiration comes from. I like the close touch of nature, the colors of autumn and the smell of the sea. I am a photographer, a writer and a minimalist. I’ve seen the last 15 years through the viewfinder of my camera. I go through life collecting moments and turn them into beautiful visual stories. Apart from photography and nature, I am passionate about simple, green living and that is the main topic of my blog, which has become the meeting point of a vibrant green community of eco-conscious artists and crafters from around the world.
