At the age of seven, I picked up a camera for the first time and discovered that I could magically record the world the way I saw it: landscapes, nature, seascapes, horses – all the beauty around me. When my daughter Emma was born, I discovered portrait photography and have had a successful portrait studio in the U.S. Now back in Sweden, I offer both portrait and fine art nature photography.
MY MISSION is to capture emotions in timeless art for you.
MY STYLE of photography is timeless and artsy, balancing light and dark with a clean design.
As a full-service studio, you can sit back and relax – I will oversee your project from start to finish. Every image is hand processed to accentuate the fine details to ensure a memorable art piece in your home.

Let me tell you a story: Audrey called me yesterday and was almost in tears. She liked my pregnancy portraits but decided to go with a shoot-and-burn photographer. When she viewed the shoot-and-burn photographer’s snapshots she was very disappointed. “I do not like a single image! They are not flattering. I need to do a second session with you, Malin!”
This reaction will never happen at Malin K’s studio. Clients are thrilled with their images. Every time. Malin K stands for quality.
Today, another phone call: Shana contacted me for family portraits after a shoot-and-burn photographer did her newborn photos. Quote: “not a single image came out nicely from the other photographer. They did not look like the sample images on her website – at all. No artistic vision, no posing. I am so disappointed with her, we should simply have come to you right away.”
It is hard to shop for photography these days with so many inexperienced photographers emerging. Make sure your chosen photographer created all the images on her website from scratch. Many new photographers go to workshops and take photos of models posed by instructors. Setting up the pose is hard. Setting up the lighting is hard. Getting that right expression is hard. Pressing the shutter of a pre-posed model is easy… My guarantee is that what you see on my website, I can create for you. Any image there, is created at my studio showcasing real clients.
MY GUARANTEE is that you will be thrilled with your images.
“As professional photographers ourselves, we understand the value of a well-made image. We wanted to capture this fleeting stage of our baby’s life in a timeless fashion, and knew that a photographer who specializes in baby portraiture would do just that. We were initially impressed by the quality and naturalness of Malin’s imagery, and are completely enamored of the portraits she has made for us. They demonstrate her expert handling of light, subjects and composition, and will be a welcome addition to our walls. It has been a pleasure working with Malin; she put us at ease in front of the lens, and customized a wall package for our home. We could not recommend her more enthusiastically.”

“Every woman wants to feel comfortable and beautiful during her maternity photography shoot and Malin made me feel both the moment I walked through her door! The rolling hills that surrounds her studio are breathtaking and there is not a better place or photographer in Tucson to get your belly pictures taken. Just when I thought the experience couldn’t be any better, I saw the proofs and they were stunning in every way. They even made my mother cry! Malin is incredibly talented at capturing your pregnancy beauty. Thank you, Malin!”
Emily Brownlee, Tucson
“Malin was dedicated in making our experience special. From my first contact with Malin, I knew she would be able to capture the essence of our new family. She is warm and caring in her interactions with our daughter. She showed amazing patience during our shoot and provided thoughful guidance during our decision-making process for our purchase. What I love most is her breadth of artistry. From loving relationship photos to creatively posed portraits, Malin is one of few photographers who is able to capture it all. Thank you!”
Antara & Arun, Tucson Foothills
“We have shared Charley’s photos with several of our friends and they are blown away by the images you have taken. You are amazing at what you do. Thank you again for everything and including both of our families at the sessions. Grandparents loved to be part of this experience. Thanks again Malin. We couldn’t be happier with everything. Birth announcement looks amaziiinnnnnng!”
Kate Harrington, Oro Valley
“As much as your baby grows and changes in their first year, it was important to me to capture those precious milestones and the Baby Plan was perfect for that. I had high expectations of a photographer and Malin exceeded everything I had envisioned. During our sessions she was patient, personable, and even when our baby son was cranky she was able to get impeccable portraits. I will forever be grateful to Malin for capturing my sons physical charm and his spirit.As our son grows and we add to our family we will be sure to return to Malin to add to our exquisite collection of portraits. The images she captures will line our walls for a lifetime!”
Samantha Fraley, Tucson AZ
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart! We just finished our baby plan and couldn’t be happier. Marley’s baby photos are beautiful! Her personality isn’t the easiest going, she’s usually stoic and has a hard time adjusting to new environments resulting in tears. Thank you for providing a welcoming, calm and soothing environment. All our worries how Marley will act for picture day are never warranted – she acts very comfortably in your photography studio and outdoor too. As a result, you capture memories for us of the sweet Marley we know! It is a pleasure to work with you and have your art on our walls. Great Thanks.”

|“We are extremely happy that we chose Malin to capture these once-in-a-lifetime moments. When I was pregnant, I wasn’t even sure I was going to get maternity photos taken until I came across Malin’s website. I was blown away by how beautiful her photos were – other photographers’ portfolios simply didn’t compare to Malin’s. The sessions were such pleasant experiences; Malin is such a professional with skill and knowledge of her art. She makes you feel right at home and very special. When we received our wall art, we were very impressed by the quality.”|
Annie & Matthew McKinley, Tucson
“We found Malin’s website and immediately fell in love with the classy, timeless style of her photography. Not only is she talented, but is a lovely person to know and work with. Before arriving for the first viewing – the pregnancy session – we discussed ordering a few images, but once we saw the photographs we were floored at what she was able to capture. They are truly pieces of art in our home. Going back for the newborn session was even more special. Malin’s patience during the session was amazing as she was willing to spend as much time necessary to photograph our son and the sweet interaction with mom, dad and baby. Malin’s images of our family are beautiful and touching. We are so grateful to have photographs to remind us of this cherished time in our family’s life.”
Ashley & Ramsey Horn, Las Vegas NV
“Malin is an amazingly talented photographer with a great eye for capturing the sweet, candid moments with our son. In the pre-consultation, she interviewed us about what we had in mind for our shoot, the setting we were looking for and what type of images we wanted. During the viewing session she helped us through the selection process of putting a wall grouping of portraits together. I highly recommend Malin’s services, as she was a pleasure to work with and caters to each family individually, from the moment the shoot is booked to receiving the finished product.”
Erin Hakansson, San Francisco CA
“I really want to thank you SO much for the beautiful work capturing the love in my family. The images moved me to tears when I saw them the first and to this day continue to take my breath away. Our baby boy has already changed so much, we’re thankful for newborn images we have to forever remind us of the beginning of his life.”
Gaby Carillo, Sahuarita
“Babies are little for such a short time, but Malin’s amazing photography of our girl as a newborn has given us memories for a lifetime. Thank you for capturing our precious baby girl at such a great phase in her life. Our entire family will enjoy these portraits forever!”
