ABOUT HELEN - New Plymouth's Full Time Female MASTER Photographer

Multi Award Winning Photographer


I'm glad you stopped by. Let me introduce myself, Hi I'm Helen and I'm a Fine Art Portrait Photographer. I have been photographing people most of my life. My business career started in photographing weddings in 2002 and then went full time into a portrait business in 2012 specializing in Maternity, new born and children photography. I run a small boutique in home studio business in New Plymouth, Taranaki specializing in Fine Art Wall Portraits. It pretty much takes over my life and living spaces. I'm passionate about creating simple images that are more that just a photo. I love it, it what gets me up in the mornings.

My main objective in every session is to create simple portraiture yet something that evokes feeling. I strive for that artistic look that is timeless and evocative and of course images that you will love. I mainly use natural light with a single continuous light to give a soft natural look to my images.

If you love simple, fine art style of photography and see the value in investing in quality and beautiful family memories then contact me for a chat, I'm here to help.


Let me tell you a little about me.

I'm a perfectionist (trying not to be as I know nothing in this world is perfect) It doesn't stop me trying though.

I don't like coffee, chocolate and wine gives me headaches.

My family is the most important thing in my life and I absolutely adore my grandchildren, they are my treasures.

Nothing makes me happier than spending time with family and friends. I love getting my gumboots on and enjoying the outdoors with my horses that I don't get enough time to ride. I love walking my dog on the beach and watching a good movie.

I am the only fulltime female Master Photographer in Taranaki and have won numerous awards nationally and internationally. I do this to push myself to be better than I was yesterday.

Setting myself goals is something I do regularly.
