WELCOME

Welcome to Portrait by Helena, home based portrait studio.

Our portrait sessions are designed and styled for women of all ages and we also offer personal branding sessions for small business owners, entrepreneurs or corporations.

To get to know more about our services and your photography inquires, you can schedule a complimentary consultation at 210-952-8143. This can be on a phone, skype or if you'd prefer in person we can meet at our studio or at your office. Our office hours are Monday - Thursday 10am-5pm. The most of the desired times for photo sessions are during weekends, therefore we reserve this time for scheduled and prepaid appointments only. 

F A Q


HOW LONG THE SESSION LASTS?

This will depend on what type of session you desire. Usually full portrait session with makeup and hair style and few outfit changes lasts in average about 3 hours. Personal branding sessions/headshots last about an hour. 

WHAT DO I NEED FOR MY PORTRAIT SESSION?

The best way to get ready for your session is to be relaxed, get enough sleep a night before your photoshoot and drink plenty water to get your skin and body good hydration. The most of women love to pamper themselves at least a week or two before by visiting their favorite spa salon and mani/pedi. Have few of your favorite outfits cleaned and ironed and don't worry about putting your make up on before you come for a photoshoot. This all will be done here for you with styling your hair as well and it's complimentary with your purchased session. 

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL BECAUSE MY SKIN ISSUE?

Current technology and high end professional cameras provide lots of technical information which creates very big size file in raw format and this has to be finished and edited on computer. All of our portraits include professionally retouching to eliminate slight skin imperfection or balance skin tone. 

I WANT A MAKEOVER SESSION BUT I DON'T HAVE ANY DRESS TO WEAR.

What to wear we will discuss at our consultation and find what would work best for you. I also provide small wardrobe collection for a photoshoot in few sizes complimentary. 

CAN I BUY DIGITAL IMAGES?

Our packages of printed photographs include the version in digital form of any portrait you purchase. Anything you buy in print you will get digital for your social media, website or other online use as well.

WHEN I CAN SEE AND PURCHASE MY PORTRAITS?

After your portrait session is finished, we will schedule when you come back to our studio to see your finished images. Usually it is within 7-12 days. You will buy only those photographs you love the most. It's up to you.
