Renowned for her ability to capture beautiful images that are works of art in their own right, Helen Bartlett has forged a reputation as London’s leading children’s and family photographer. Now based in Crouch End, Helen captures the joys of your family’s life in a way that will hold real memories for both parents and children in the years to come.
Working on location in family homes, Helen incorporates the surrounding environment – both indoors and outdoors – to reflect children as they are and showing them having fun in their favourite places. With her distinctive black and white photographs, Helen’s style lends itself to creating a record of childhood, and she revisits many families year after year to capture the moments that make them special.
‘I look for and photograph the big moments – the leap of a child into their parent’s arms to be thrown up in the air; the triumph of scoring a goal; a kiss given and received. But I also seek out the little moments – a child’s questioning glance as they explain their latest imaginative game to their father; the concentration on a girl’s face when teaching their doll to read; the tired snuggle of a little one just before naptime, and the caring hand that strokes their hair.’
Using light, angles and storytelling to capture scenes that are full of emotion, love and humour, Helen creates pictures unique to each family. She has worked with more than a thousand families and has over ten years’ experience, so you
can be sure that Helen will capture the very best photographs of you and your children, and that you will all have a lot of fun as a family along the way.
‘The photo sessions with Helen are a real joy – as if you are with an old friend who just happens to be very handy with a camera. She effortlessly bonds with our son and allows him to be himself throughout the day, and the result is a wonderful set of photographs that seem to capture the essence of his personality. Helen’s creativity and technical ability is outstanding – indoors, outdoors, rain, bright sunshine or poor light – somehow she manages to turn every image into a small masterpiece.’ Elke
Of course, a photo shoot is about more than just the session itself. Working alongside Helen, studio manager Kate is dedicated to providing excellent customer care. You can be sure that every aspect of your shoot, from first contact to the session itself, your viewing session, then the delivery of your pictures at a convenient time, will be effortless and enjoyable. Kate will visit you at your home to show you your photographs and can also help you to decide on how best to display your images to ensure that you cherish the memories captured by Helen.
