I am Helen Leonard, I am a married mum of two beautiful girls aged 4 & 8.
Thank you so much for visiting my photography website, as a hair and makeup artist, the art I created can seem so temporary, I wanted to be able to capture these moments, don’t get me wrong, I love and thrive when working with other professional photographers, however there wasn’t always a pro around when magic is created. This frustrated me immensely, so I had to do something about it.
I have worked with many great photographers and I had already learnt a lot being around them and the photography process in general.
But I knew I needed to do more to be as great as the best of them (something I am still, and always will be working on). I signed up for an online photography course, bought myself a DSLR Camera and some lights to get me started, I would take as many pictures as I could because in my opinion practising is the best way to learn with photography, and I haven’t looked back since.
That was nearly 2 years ago, since then I have had amazing feedback on the quality of my photography, I have even had a couple of magazine publications accepted, (now to get that front cover image!)
I am continuing to educate myself daily when it come to photography and I know things can only get better, I would love to assist other photographers as continual part of my training.
I do still do hair and makeup, in fact this is a unique offering that I am able to offer with my shoots without having to hire someone else – you can see more about that side of my work HERE
I own a Canon 5D Mark II and have a full mobile studio including backdrops and lights, so I am able to product high quality images and my home studio, on location or anywhere else required.
Please have a look at my photography galleries on the page of the type of shoot you are interested, if you like my work and would like to connect to arrange a photoshoot, please call or email me, alternatively you can contact me using the following form .
