Hi there! Thanks so much for checking out my website! My name is Helen Kichenbrand and I am a mum of 2 and family lifestyle, fine art portrait and headshot photographer based in beautiful Frome, Somerset. I also cover areas such as Bath, Bristol, Bruton, Shepton Mallet and all over the South West and beyond.
I have always loved taking photos of people and those little moments that often go unnoticed. I'm also obsessed with the great outdoors and capturing families in stunning settings where I can play with light and mother natures beauty! more recently i have also set up my own home studio to help me create fine art portraits using multiple exposure photography inspired by nature. i love to layer stunning portraits with flowers, plants and foliage to create totally unique images.
my family photography is all about documenting the warm fuzzy feeling that spending time together gives you. That's why it is such a personal thing that takes a thoughtful observer to get right. I much prefer to photograph families subtly from the sidelines while they enjoy themselves, rather than posing them and being an obvious presence. If the idea of having your photograph taken makes you awkward then I know how you feel. I hate having mine taken too but I do love it when someone gets a photo of my children and I without me noticing. These are always the ones I cherish and that's what I aim to capture with the families I photograph. I will join you for a walk in the woods, fun at the beach, skateboarding in the park, a run in a corn field or just a hang out at home! Its totally up to you! This way I will capture you as the family you truly are doing the stuff you love to do together!
Similarly when it comes to my headshot photography my aim is to capture you as yourself portraying your business in a genuine and authentic way. Whether you are after some outdoor, relaxed shots, some more formal portraits or shots for your social media i can accommodate whatever needs you have.
In my spare time (when I have it these days) I love to spend my time cooking, eating, running, playing with my kids, drawing, gardening and watching mindless action films!
So if you are interested in letting me help you capture some of your families best bits or get you on your way with some beautiful headshots for your new business then do get in touch. I can't wait to hear from you!
