Melissa Helman Photography | Meet The Artist

“A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense and is thereby a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.” 
― Ansel Adams


Welcome and thank you for visiting my page. I'm Melissa Helman and I own and operate Melissa Helman Photography, located in Greensburg, PA.  Photography is an expression of how you feel about what is around you and being able to create it. I am a hopeless romantic and an emotional person. My favorite movie of all time is guessed it, "The Notebook". All my life I've been told that I'm sensitive and I used to think it was a bad thing....however, I 've come to learn that it's what makes me, me. I truly care about people and care about my clients.  I love getting to know each of the families I work with.  I 've found that my style of photography promotes emotion when I 'm able to create pictures that capture raw emotion and personality. Creating images that capture a genuine emotion is my goal with each family I work with and my personal photography work.  


I am a mother of three loving, and fun children + one spunky black lab.  My husband is my best friend and huge supporter of my work and vision.  We love to travel, listen to music and be outside together.  My home is always filled laughter, music and food.  We love entertaining and visiting with friends and family. I have a lot of clients who have become dear friends....I love meeting new people.  


My business began when I found that I was able to create art using my camera.  I love to create and for me photography and design are a way to do that . I'm constantly looking for new inspiration and ways to push myself to create everyday.  My friends and family say I'm a bit of a free spirit.  Having a free spirited heart allows me to think outside the box and create lasting images.  


I'm a lover of old barns and old barn wood (probably because I'm a farm girl at heart and spent most of my childhood playing at the neighbors farm).  I'm not afraid to get dirty and love being outside.  You can often find or hear me singing and being silly with my kids.  I love surprises and being surprised even though both are tricky to do.  


My work is described as natural, romantic, and emotional.  To see more of my work you can follow me on Facebook at Melissa Helman Photography. 


I look forward to meeting you and working with your family.
