Helena Goessens is a newborn, child and family photographer specializing in custom lifestyle photography located in Dedham, MA. She loves to use natural light, whenever possible, on her newborn, children and family portraitures. As a professional photographer, her goal for each family photography session is to capture genuine portraits that showcases your family's unique story and to create a personalized experience for you and your family that it is fun and meaningful. Although the goal of working together is to create wonderful images, she also strives to make the process of getting there enjoyable and memorable.


the session process:

I take a natural approach to create heirloom imagery for my families. I love to photograph you in real, meaningful settings that convey the essence of who you are and what you love. I work hard to make sure the entire process is stress-free for my clients from start to finish, with the end result being beautifully crafted photo prints and products to be treasured for many years to come.


Every session begins with an initial consultation so we can get to know each other. I love to learn more about you and your family, your goals for the family photography session, and share ideas on how to incorporate the photographs into your home decoration. I encourage clients to use this time for questions and to share their own vision.

In order to reserve your family photography session date in my calendar, a non-refundable session fee of $250 (but transferable in case we need to reschedule) and a signed contract are required. I will work with your schedule to find a perfect day and time for the session.


A full-length family photography session will approximately last 1 to 2 hours long and include up to 5 people. A pre-session consultation, photo session, ordering session, and a private online gallery for viewing and ordering are included in your session.

After our session, I will post a brief sneak peek on my facebook page a few days after, highlighting a few photos from your family session! One of my client's favorite part of the entire photo session is getting to see their beautiful images projected in the comfort of their own home. I will bring over all the viewing equipment and go through each image with you individually.


At this point in time, you will have the opportunity to choose the photographs you would like to have as prints, canvas, or a variety of other products I offer. I will bring a pricing guide and make recommendations for photo products I think would enhance your home. This is your time to ask questions, place orders, and get excited about your images!

I am also pleased to offer a generous referral program. Your recommendation to family and friends is the highest compliment you can give! To thank you for this, you will receive a $100 print credit to use toward your next session. In addition, if you refer 3 new clients who complete a session with me, I’ll waive the equivalent value of the session fee for your next session.

Limited number of sessions accepted each month. Please reserve your session early to ensure availability.
