Helen took great photos of our newborn son at less than 2 weeks old. As first time parents, Helen took the time to get to know us while mom and newborn were still in the hospital and was thoughtful in her approach on the day of the photoshoot. We were able to take various photos of our newborn as well as our family in different settings. We are very pleased with how the photos turned out and quality of the final presentation.
J’ai partagé avec Hélène un moment magnifique à l’occasion de deux shooting pour immortaliser ma première grossesse et les 9 mois de notre fils Sacha.
Helene a été de très bon conseil et a su nous mettre en confiance. Elle a su capter l'émotion et l'amour qui règne dans notre famille. Le résultat était bluffant et nous plaît énormément. Ce sont des souvenirs gravés pour toujours ! Merci Hélène ! Love XxxX
The photos are so intimate and precious. They are beautiful! Thanks for your effort. We love them.

I love this picture too!!! Thank you so much it's incredible the job you do!!! Wish you the best and happy to work any other time together!!
J'ai adoré le shooting avec vous et la photo que vous m'avez faite m'a bien servi pour ce dont j'avais besoin dans mon travail.
My experience was amazing! Everything was sanitized. She did a great job with all of the pictures. I would do it again if i could. She helped me with my 6 weeks old baby photoshoot. The editing was also great. The props were so cute and looked clean. The lighting was also amazing. I liked everything about it. Everything was perfect. Thank you so much 😊
Had a great time shooting with Helen. I needed some professional portraits for my work and she was able to provide me with amazing photos. She took her time explaining the poses which will really help me good look on photos, especially the one that can hide my tummy area. I remember doing quite a lot of steps to achieve that particular pose and it's quite hard to maintain. But Helen will make you feel at ease and will guide you through the whole process. I would highly recommend Helen Putsman Photography to capture your portraits. Thanks, Helen!.
Helen is amazing! She managed to capture in one picture the personalities of my 4 kids. She did wonderful pictures as well of my newborn. I highly recommend her for all your family pictures. The followed up she is doing as well as the photo’s materials she is offering are her special touch. Thanks a lot again Helen Helen est incroyable! Elle a été capable de capturer les personnalités de mes 4 enfants sur une seule photo. Elle a également réalisé des photos de mon nouveau né absolument magnifiques. Je la recommande vivement pour tous vos portraits de familles. Le suivi personnalisé qu’elle fait ainsi que les supports photos proposés sont vraiment sa patte spéciale. Merci encore pour tout Helen
I had my first professional photo shoot with Helen. It was for a feature story on me for an alumni magazine. To accommodate the school's request for different backgrounds, Helen scouted a few locations on either side of the lake to find the right lighting and background. On the day of the shoot, we shot for more than an hour until after the sun had set. Helen was patient, meticulous and professional. The photos turned out excellent. Thank you, Helen!
Helen did such an amazing job taking our family photographs. She was very engaged and enthusiastic during the shoot and was able to capture some beautiful moments of the children and us. She put a lot of time into editing and did a great job as the photos came out very natural looking and not at all stylised. She also put a lot of time and effort into showing us various options for printing and offers novel finishes such as on woodblocks, which we eventually went for and look brilliant and very natural. Helen is clearly very experienced in knowing how to produce excellent photos and we were really happy with the results. Thank you Helen!
I did my first headshot shooting with Helen, and she made it so easy and was really kind and understanding! Again, thank you so much Helen, I finally have good pictures of myself.
I would highly recommend Helen. Had an amazing experience and we were fortunate enough to see a beautiful part of France thanks to Helen’s expertises. She managed to find the perfect location and it was just what we were looking for.
Communication was excellent and she face timed us to give us advice on what to wear etc.
We really enjoyed the shoot itself and we received high quality photos that we used for our wedding invitations and now we have proudly on our living room wall!!!
Will definitely be coming back for more photo shoots!
Nous avons choisi Helen pour photographier notre mariage. Nous avons été ravis par son professionnalisme et le résultat obtenu. Elle a pris le temps de venir une semaine avant le mariage pour visiter le lieu avec moi afin de voir la luminosité sur le lieu. Elle a été de précieux conseils et s'est adaptée à nous au mieux. Le jour de notre mariage, Helen a pris les choses en mains lors des moment photos avec les invités ce qui nous a beaucoup déchargés. De manière générale, avec mon mari, nous ne sommes pas particulièrement à l'aise lorsque nous posons, mais Helen nous a rassuré et nous a donné des indications pour avoir de belles photos. Helen a vraiment mis du coeur dans le travail qu'elle a réalisé et avons été ravi par son investissement. Nous la recommandons vivement!
Kata and Ido
We had our engagement shooting with Helen. When we first met her she was very friendly and attentive , she wanted to get to know us both so the photos and the shooting session will match us the best! I think it's very important and I'm very grateful that she was always very kind, thoughtful and let us be ourselves !The session was a great fun led by Helen's professionalism . It was in a gorgeous place in the mountains where she came with us. We enjoyed every moment of it a lot and the results are just adorable !!!Thank you Helen for making this amazing moment eternal! My husband Ido and me are very happy and thankful! We love you Kata & Ido.
Helen is amazing! she is an incredible photographer, very professional, kind and attentive. That’s why we have chosen to hire her for our maternity photo sessions as well as for our recent new born and baby shoots. During the whole process she was very informative as to how to prepare for each photo shoot and what to expect. At the shoots she was extremely patient and gentle with our newborn and our toddler. Each time the pictures were absolutely breathtaking, we really had a hard time picking our favourites! At the end, we printed them in metallic prints and hand crafted photoblocks in order to treasure them for ever, and we couldn’t be happier with the final result. Helen really takes photography to the level of art. We highly recommend her.
Dr Kate Whitehouse
We had a lovely experience with Helen last year when we did newborn shots. It was a bit of a last minute decision to do the shoot so by the time I found Helen, my son was already a bit on the "old" side for newborn photos but she was still happy to oblige us and found time to do the shoot ASAP. We had a discussion about what kind of shoot I might want ahead of time, and we settled on an outdoor location near her home. It was a few hours of posing my son, waiting for him to have feeds or be asleep enough to be posed. Helen was extremely patient and we had a good time throughout the process. A few days later, we did a family shoot with my husband and stepdaughter as well where Helen also obliged our desire to be outdoors in a park. We were happy with the end result, which Helen hand delivered a few weeks later both in the form of digitals and some prints and photo blocks. Helen was great at working with a newborn baby and new mom too.

surprise birthday photo book
The book is lovely. The photographs captured the spirit of your 'bash' and they are so natural and yet intimate. They ooze warmth and love for you and for your friends. Helen also managed to show the surprise on your face as you walked into the restaurant. These are moments we shall cherish as we cherish you as a friend: ever thoughtful, generous and courageous.

J’ai vérifié les photos et c’est exactement cela dont nous avions besoin, merci pour avoir su parfaitement répondre à nos attentes.
Je n’hésiterai pas à refaire appel à vous lors de nos prochains évènements en Suisse.
Yumiko & Rami's wedding
The coolest thing, you were always with us while our wedding. Which means, the pictures explain well the story of our wedding. Photos are telling what was happening on the special day.
The slide show was really great!

Les séances avec Helen s'agissait pas seulement d'une reportage familiale, mais aussi de sentiments. Il y avait un travail derrière très soigné, une connexion super avec la photographe, mais aussi avec la personne. Elle fait des photos, mais aussi elle crée un lien super avec le but du travail. Nous avons réussi à créer une ambiance romantique aux parc des eaux vives, avec des robes très bien choisis pour faire la liaison entre la nature, ma famille, la vie qui s'agrandit dans mon ventre.... un moment unique, ma dernière grossesse a reste immortalisé grâce à cette travail super. La photo de moi tombé dans la herbe en touchant mon ventre est chargé de sentiments, d'énergie, de calme . La photographie de Helen arrive à transmettre plus qu'une image.
Alejandra Alvades Gross
La séance suivante à la clinique avec la jolie familiale, la connexion entre nous, mon mari et moi, la petit et son frère, elle et son père, ma fille et moi... tous ensemble. Elle a très bien remarque les regards, le sentiment derrière, le moment unique de la nouvelle vie qui arrivait. Et finalement, le star, Alvaro, il a était retraité avec beaucoup d'amour et de soin. Elle a réussi à attraper dans le temps ses premier sourires, la calme du bébé, la paix que les nouveaux nés toujours transmis, et que malheureusement on perd avec l'âge, avec la vie...
Une très grand merci pour votre travail, votre façon de vouloir connaitre notre histoire familial pour la laisser exprimé dans le photos, mais aussi pour le magnifique souvenir que nous garderons toujours avec votre travail, dans notre coeur. Une moment unique, magnifique.
Nina & Gavin
Oh Wow Helen! Thank you so much! There are many really lovely ones, and you've caught us very well and naturally! I'm thrilled.
I really love them.
Très bonne expérience avec Helen: elle prend bien le temps de cerner nos envies et besoins en amont. Lors des prises de vues, Helen est très patiente et se cale sur le rythme du bébé. le résultat est très beau et très naturel. ça a été un plaisir de partager ces moments ensemble . à bientôt peut être pour des photos de famille!
Duncan & Kerry
Hi Helen, just to let you know Kerry was over the moon with the photos. Its the 1st time we've had pro pics taken of us and she is really happy with the results.
Helen a compris ce que je cherchais et a su me mettre à l'aise lors de la séance de photos. Ce fut une très bonne expérience. J'ai de belles photos pour mon site Axessens. Merci encore.

The ones so far look delicious! I am loving them! The pictures look great! Now comes the hard part. How do I choose?
Helen was a joy to work with. She captured my one year old beautifully and was able to recreate a project that I had done for my other two children years ago. I can't recommend her enough!
Amanda & Alejandro
Thank you again for the great work at the wedding. I took a look at the photos you posted, they look really great!
Am finally getting a chance to look again at the lovely pics you took of the blessing of our marriage. Thanks for being our visual "memory-keeper" of this special day. Just love the shots on the bench - we used the one you have online of us looking at each other for our thank you cards and it's getting rave reviews!
The pictures you have taken of Max are quite simply remarkable and in truth I was wet eyed by the time I had finished looking at them.
They are both the best pictures of Max and best of a child that I have ever seen.
They entirely capture his abundant energy and enthusiasm. I think he was a good model and you have given us a beautiful permanent record of his passion and love of life so a million thank yous…
