The number one thing I have learned in my 8 year journey as a photographer is that there simply isn't just one way to build a successful newborn photography brand. In fact, the opposite is the case:

WHEN WE START WALKING our own path AND LEAN INTO WHAT MAKES OUR HEARTS SING, THAT'S WHEN THINGS FINALLY START FALLING INTO PLACE.

I want to help you find your way to build a business that allows you to do what you love and live the life you want.
Let's get started!

WHEN I STOPPED LOOKING LEFT OR RIGHT, MY BUSINESS FINALLY FELT LIKE me

One day, nearly 5 years ago now, I made the decision to stop playing by the "rules" and it changed everything for me. After years of trying to do all the right things that didn't feel like me at all, I leaned in to what I was truly passionate about, listened to my heart instead of the industry – and now I want to help you do the same.

I know "do your own thing" is much easier said than done. And a thing I've learned was that we don't have to do this alone. Going my own way, doesn't mean that I have to do it all by myself. But instead of buying into cookie cutter solutions and one-size-fits-all programs, I started working with professionals who have helped understand my own strengths, highlight my differences, and intuitively build the business and brand I am proud to call my own today.

MY BEGINNINGS

Back in 2017 I was three years into my full-time photography journey, but I was lightyears away from where I am today. I shot at low prices, was unhappy with the results of my work, felt drained and unhappy. My clients back then loved my work, but I hated it. It didn’t represent me - just the industry. The trendy poses, props and fake smiles. All of it was pretty, but it simply wasn’t me at all. The “dream business” was starting to feel like a nightmare I couldn’t get out of.

THE turning point

I finally realised that I needed to quit or make a massive change. And so I decided to start from scratch. I found what my style is, how I wanted to work and who my dream clients were – and I built everything else around that. I realised that in some way, intuitively, I had always known what I wanted – I just hadn’t allowed myself to really think about it. And you know what? What I did, actually worked. I suddenly found myself getting booked for dream shoots by dream clients at dream prices.

today

My style now is a mixture of super simple Scandinavian minimalism and timeless neutrality. All I need to shoot is a simple location that helps the connection between my clients take centerstage. The experience I offer my clients is what's most important to me. And all of it is planned from my imagination and intuition, mapped out and built over years. I didn’t look left and right, only inwards and ahead. And that feels great.

"Helianna's sessions are incredibly relaxed, the process feels natural and is wonderful to watch. During a newborn shoot Helianna doesn't rush or stress, creating this magically positive atmosphere."

NEWBORN shoot client

Helianna's way of working is so confident and peaceful to watch.  She gave trust and made clear that we all can do it. I need to start trust my own visions and skills and good things will happen.

HOW I FIND BALANCE as A PHOTOGRAPHER, BUSINESS OWNER AND MOM OF THREE

READ NOW

Some years ago the thought of running my own business seemed like a dream. Being able to work according to MY schedule, not having to please a demanding boss, taking breaks whenever I want to – what an amazing thought! Of course, once I was in the thick of it, I realised quickly that running a business was hard work and that I am in fact the most demanding boss I could ever have...

HOW TO PREPARE A NATURAL and  EASY STUDIO SHOOT FOR A NEWBORN FAMILY

READ NOW

All kind of serving during your client process leaves a mark. To me the most important aim is to make a newborn family to feel that they are at home, there's no rush and I'll take care of everything. When the family arrives to my studio I priorly ask if they want to have coffee or tea and offer them cold beverages and some pastry. They have a time to sit down and take a breathe while I take care of the baby...
