Welcome to Helen Traherne Photography

I am a contemporary portrait photographer based near Cambridge.
My main areas of work include wedding, family, children, newborn baby, school and commercial photography.
My goal is simple – to capture stunning images that you will treasure for ever.


I am a contemporary portrait photographer based near Cambridge, providing wedding photographyfamily portrait photography, children’s photography and newborn baby photography.

My wedding photography includes both standard and bespoke packages moulded to your specific plans for the day. Typical packages include reportage-style photographs, from the bridal preparations through to the first dance, resulting in a story of pictures that becomes a memorable keepsake of your special day.

My commercial photography includes corporate photoshoots for companies ranging from England’s top children’s activity camp, to the largest costume jewellery manufacturer in the UK, as well as nursery, playgroup and school portrait photography.

I specialise in natural ‘lifestyle’ photography, creating informal portraits that capture the essence of people’s personalities and their range of expressions.

I avoid the ‘stiff’ constraints of a studio, working with natural lighting where possible and portable lighting when required. I can travel to your home, local park, or any familiar environment where you and your family feel most relaxed.

For children, my emphasis is on fun, letting them be themselves, whatever that entails – kicking Autumn leaves, playing on swings, climbing trees; ultimately happy children make great photos!

My wedding photography reflects a modern, contemporary reportage style that is full of romance, mixed with dramatic impact for the larger shots.
