Getting to know: Photography by Helen

It's been a while since I last featured another business on my blog, so I thought I'd start it up again seeing as the last one with Snuggleband went down so well!

This time, we're meeting a local mummy friend of mine, Helen, who runs her own photography company and who we, as a family, have used previously. You might recognise a photo later on! Having studied photography myself at college, I'm a big lover of taking photos, whether that be on my phone or with a fancy camera. But one thing I've never been great at is being in front of the camera myself. I feel like it takes something special for a photographer to really make someone like me feel comfortable. The same for Joey, who at the time of the shoot we had with Helen was just about to turn 1, was notoriously shy. The fact that we'd known Helen a while was, of course, a bonus, but actually the way she is with families naturally made all of us relax and enjoy the experience. We got some fabulous family photos that we'll treasure forever, and I really hope you book a shoot with Helen as lockdown eases.

Hi Helen, what’s your name and give us an insight into your daily life…

Hi, I’m Helen from Photography by Helen. I’m a wife of a teacher and mother of 3 terrific little energy suckers. We live in Leicestershire and enjoy exploring nature, crafting and movie nights together. When I get time to myself I love a glass of wine and a book or Netflix with the hubby.
