Family photographer in Helsinki – Familjefotograf i Helsingfors

All family members are welcome to the newborn and baby sessions.

 Now booking family and portrait sessions for  spring and summer 2022

Hi, my name is Joanna. Welcome here! Photos are a source of strength to look back at, ever charged with happiness, growing in value as time passes. I photograph from the heart. It is an honor and a joy to take part of your lives and the most precious thing you have – each other.

I choose my photo locations with care and create images full of feelings. I photograph outdoors as well as in the comfort of your home. Any weather is good besides rain and very strong wind – then we reschedule. Many prefer sunlight but cloudy weather is actually good for portraits: the colors pop and the light is softer on such days.

If we are photographing inside, I prefer staying close to a window – my light sensitive Art lenses are perfect for capturing great images even in winter. I can also bring additional light sources if needed.

My service is all inclusive. I deliver a picture gallery telling your story.

You are welcome to contact me – I am now booking sessions for February onwards. I speak Swedish, Finnish, English and Spanish.

”Tack igen för de jättefina bilderna! Stämningen och all rekvisita var så fin och det blev en så mysig stund”.

What to expect:

  • An all inclusive – package! You get a full photo gallery from me, a captivating story of your love, your life.
  • A family photo session includes many varieties of relaxed poses, both individual photos of the children as well as together with you. We can take newborn pictures, siblings portraits and couples portraits, all in the same session. You will have time to both play and pose for more traditional photos together.
  • I will give you all the information you need before the session and guide you during the shoot, so you will know how to interact and move in order to get natural and beautiful pictures.
  • My goal is to make you feel happy and remember the day with a smile. I am an experienced photographer and a mother to a toddler, so I come prepared.
  • My style is a mix between lifestyle and documentary. I can style the session with some props if you wish.

How it works

Spring is waiting for us, let’s get started! It is easy and fun to book and plan a photo session with me. Right now there are are a few weekend slots free in February, and weekend spring sessions will soon be booked.

Before the session:

  1. Tell me more about your family in the booking form below: how many are you and how old are the children? When would you like to be photographed?
  2. Let’s find a location that fits your needs! We can photograph in a park, by a mansion, in the forest, by the ocean, or at your home. I know a lot of beautiful places in and around Helsinki.
  3. We agree on a date and a time for the session. If someone gets sick or it rains we reschedule.
  4. You will get an short info package to your e-mail with everything you need to know before the session.

After the session:

  1. You will get an e-mail with a password protected, curated photo gallery about a week after the session. The photos are yours to keep!
  2. The invoice is sent to your e-mail after the photo delivery.
  3. I would love to use some of your photos in my online communication. This is of course completely optional and I always let you approve the selection.
  4. Remember to print, frame and enjoy your pictures! You may also post them online, if possible credit me, so others find their way here. Thank you!

Cherry blossom time in May!

An investment for life

  • My family photo session starts at 250 euros. I also have other options for photographing only one child or siblings. Please ask!
  • You get a beautiful photo gallery, like a story, delivered online. The images are edited and in high resolution, a beautiful story for you to keep!
  • My service is all inclusive: the prices include planning, a photo session of 30-60 minutes, depending on the situation, as well as the photo gallery.
  • The photo session itself is a nice adventure and a moment for you to be together as a family.

Exciting times, an older brother in the making. A dreamy session on the jetty in Eira.

How will the kids keep still?

We can play and do things that will look great on camera. It will work out, so no need to worry. I have toys, tricks and songs ready.

What if I don’t feel comfortable?

Remember that you don’t have to clean and make things perfect for the pictures. It’s my job to pick up things that might disturb in the background. And you are amazing just the way you are. A photo session is all about the feeling. When you are happy and express love, that is what you will see in the pictures. You will cherish the images of all of you together. Don’t wait too long to document your family, the children grow so fast…

Joanna Lindén-Montes - Fotograf

I am happy you found your way here. I work as a family photographer and photojournalist in Helsinki, Finland. Thank you for considering me.

  • I was born in Jakobstad and live in Helsinki since 2010.
  • I hold a Master’s degree in art history. I have minored in journalism. Photography has been a big part of my life since childhood. I have done courses along the way, both at university and on my own.
  • I have lived abroad for some years, in Spain and Peru. I started doing humanitarian work in Lima which later led me to a communications position at an international aid organization in Helsinki.
  • I started focusing more on family photography during my maternity leave 2019-2021. My two year old son has recently started nursery part-time, allowing me to dedicate more time to this.
  • As a former journalist I enjoy meeting new people and looking for special, new places for photo shoots.
  • I love coffee, decorating our home, sunny mornings and days spent by water and outdoors. Sometimes I write poetry and paint. I enjoy dancing!
  • I value compassion, kindness and personal growth. I want to be present each day.
  • I would love to meet you! I like to capture spontaneous moments, bringing out the best in you. I listen to your needs and take time finding the right solution. You will be relaxed, happy and at ease with me.
