Behind the lens
Hi there my name is Helouise (pronounced as Eloise), I am a Portrait and Wedding photographer based in Marietta, Georgia. I am originally from the beautiful island Bonaire also known as the divers paradise. I fell in love with photography because it gives me the ability to create stories, experiences and raw emotions.
My love of photography includes, families, maternity/newborn, couples and seniors.
I am your PHOTOGRAPHER if...
- you like having fun just like me.
- you like a documentary style approach
- if you are laid back and madly in love and are not shy to be yourself while I capture you and your loved ones.
- you like details, I love flowers and all things pretty.
For I know the plans I have for you Jer. 29:11

Facts about me:
I did not grow up with a camera in my hand, my passion for photography started when I became a mom. I believe I fell in love with photography due to the fact that I have very few pictures of me growing up, I did not want my kids to not know how they looked like at a certain age.
When I am not behind my camera you can find me in the kitchen cooking and Dancing and Music is my therapy. If I am not singing I am humming. I am multilingual. Foreign Films and documentaries are my favorite things to watch on TV. I am very crafty from making my own jewelry, scarves and sewing pouches and handbags.
I have watched Toy Story over 10 times, thanks to my son.
Expect me to tear up during the wedding ceremony and to show you my dance moves during the reception.
When you book me be prepared to laugh during your photo session. There is no stiff posing nor cool-aid smiles. Everything will just flow trust me!
I believe in making memories and having fun while being photographed. Words are not enough, an image taken today is a lifetime of yesterdays preserved for all the tomorrows.
Let's be friends, grab your cup of coffee/tea and take a look around, if you like what you see let's chat!
