I'm Helene Marie
The founder of HM Collins Photography
Who I am
I’ve always loved taking pictures. I was that friend or family member who documented the picnic gathering or adventurous outing and turned these moments into mementos with a scrapbook or a slideshow to music.
I’ve also always been service minded. For years, I worked in customer service and health care, and was a stay-at-home mom to my three now-teenage children. Then, through a process of discovery, I found I could pair my love of helping others with my passion for photography.
After various classes and studies at the CM1 Academy, a well-known photography school in the area, I’m excited to provide you with the professional photos you deserve.
What I Do
My interests and love for all aspects of home life, including gardening and cooking, has led me toward a career in photographing Real Estate, Architecture and Interior Design. I have a natural eye for capturing the best qualities of a beautiful home or space, and work with interior designers, builders, architects, realtors—and vacation homeowners looking for renters—to provide professional interior and exterior photos in order to attract business.
I also love working with people for their personal and business brand photography needs. After professionally studying and learning about commercial and business photography and portraits, I’m excited to now provide this service.
Photography is an intricate skill, and camera settings, aperture, and shutter speed are all things that go undetected in a good photograph. But I love continually learning about the ins and outs of this art and applying it to my photos.
So whether it’s a portrait or a home, I’ll help capture something that matters to you in the perfect light.
where you can find me
Though I’ve lived in Seacoast, NH for over a decade, I grew up in the Lakes region, specifically Moultonborough, where some of my family still resides. I know both areas well and am happy to travel within these special places in New Hampshire for your photography needs. This holiday season I will be volunteering my photography services at the Holiday House tour in Exeter, NH which benefits Womenade of Greater Squamscott and helps families in the community by providing short-term financial support.
