Elena’s got the magic hands in crafting and wrapping up these precious little babies capturing their tiny moments, poses, innocence. Omg there’s no complete infanthood without capturing the moment by Elena because she’s simply the best and knows her craft.
My babies are always being captured by her and makes the memories unforgettable one. And this last baby’s picture went viral on the internet. Thank you for all you do Elena.
Helena's talent is not only taking spectacular photos, but also her magic touch with babies! We managed to get through 5 hour session without our boy without any fuss! We are very pleased with the the result and will cherish the photos for a long time. Thank you!
Working with Elena is a privilege and we are absolutely taken aback by her professionalism and personal touches every step of the way. We have nothing but the highest praise for Elena and recommend her without reservation!
We had an amazing time with Elena at our daughter’s new born photo shoot. She was so professional and did a great job calming our 8day old baby. The pictures also came out very well, we had a hard time choosing from them because they are all amazing. I absolutely recommend her.
Very nice photos
Very patient to catch a beautiful family pictures with the baby
We had an amazing experience at Elena’s studio!
Frankly, I think it’s a crime to be in Ottawa with a newborn and not to visit Elena for a photo shoot. One may say it is pricey, but The Experience is worth every penny and more!
During the session, my husband had a sweet sleep on the sofa, I treated myself with kindly provided snacks and drinks, and our 7-day-old son was taken care of by Elena for hours. The most difficult for us was to choose 15 pics for editing because literally all of them were WOW!
10 out of 10, absolutely recommended!
The newborn photography experience with Elena was magical. She really has a deep and thorough knowledge of newborn behaviour and impressed us with her ability to put our little girl to sleep for the photos! Her studio in the basement is beautiful, warm and cozy. There is a spot for parents to hang out with snacks and a comfy couch - naps encouraged! She was good with our daughter and was polite, courteous and professional. The photos are beautiful and we would highly recommend Elena's services! Thank you Elena :)
it was really great working with Elena. She took beautiful pictures of us and we are really impressed with the outcome. Elena is so good with babies, keeping my daughter calm throughout the session. Definitely looking forward to future sessions with her.
Very lovely photos! Thank you very much!
Elena is amazing to work with. She made our sessions very relaxing and provided great tips for posing. She's professional, detail oriented, and great with babies. She was gentle and patient with our baby and calmed her for the shoot. The photos turn out beautiful. Thank you!

We found Elena via social media and her portfolio really grabbed our attention. She was extremely patient with our newborn,she took time to get our baby comfortable with her. She was attentive to what we wanted and accomodated our requests. She has a good eye for props and colors. The finished photos were beyond our expectations and everyone who saw it,loved it. We can't thank Elena enough for the memorable photoshoot!
Amazing! Just about to download them
We love the album of photos! The outfits and little props that you have are all so sweet. Our baby was wide awake for the first hour of the photo shoot and you were so patient and persistent to calm her down for the pictures. Even the pictures where baby is awake and bright-eyed are super cute! You even managed to get a couple nice shots of us with the baby when she was pretty much done with having her pictures taken. Thank you for your professionalism, attention to detail, and gentle care with our baby. Very happy with our experience :)
I am so happy that I found Elena for our first family photoshoot and for the photoshoot of our 6 month Old. She is a very talented person. She knows her job and is very proactive. We wanted fall views for our photos, Not only she suggested but visited places to find views for us. I am impressed by her dedication! the results are outstanding. I recommend Elena 100%. My Best wishes for her. I am very Happy with the photos they came out exactly how I wanted.
Our experience with you was amazing. Your energy with our little guy was calm and the connection was instantaneous. The two of us literally watched you with him for the time we were there in awe and were amazed by your skill, calmness, and obvious love of what you do...and the babies that you photograph! You captured our little guy perfectly and we look forward to the next shoot with you! Thank you so much!
It was an amazing experience for us to have a photo shoot with Elena!!First of all Elena is an amazing and calm person which made our 7 days old baby very comfortable.
Also Elena had a huge closet for babies for any taste, size and color.

Elena did such an amazing job! The photos and settings are fantastic. She is also an amazing baby whisperer, she was able to change outfits without waking our baby! Amazing job on all the photos and she was so warm and caring. Highly recommended!
We did the newborn photoshoot for my daughter when she was 2 weeks old. Elena is really good at everything she do, handled everything so calmly, perfectly and gently when it comes to babies. She also made sure the comfortable environment for the baby. I will recommend her 100%.

Elena is a very professional photographer easy to work with, both in setting up the shoot, the day of, and when she delivered the images. She is super responsive over text and email, and provided our photos way ahead of schedule. In person, Elena Helali is really kind and friendly, and our 2 weeks old daughter was immediately comfortable around her.
End-to-end, we couldn’t have had a better experience nor have we ever seen a better set of family photos. I wood highly recommend Elena for a family session with a toddler. Once again thank you 🙂😃😃 Elena for your great service…

The best experience! The studio was so cute and ready for anything baby needed, from heating, wipes and white noise. Elena was so patient and the pictures turned out absolutely beautiful! The outfits she provided were so cute and she truly loves what she does.
I can’t begin to describe the beautiful work that Elena has done for our first born! I highly recommend her to anyone who’d like their baby’s pictures taken! Absolutely love the photos she took for me 🌹❤️
Elena is an amazingly talented photographer, she captured stunning photographs of my newborn daughter that I will cherish forever. She takes her time when taking photos and you never feel rushed in her cozy studio. I would reccomend her to absolutely everyone. She is a wonderful photographer to work with.
We enjoyed every moment of our photo session. Elena is a great person, super hospitable and caring, Me and my family loves her professionalism and passion with her work. I highly recommend her!!!
Me & my baby had a wonderful experience with Elena she is extremely professional, welcoming, I can literally call her the baby whisper. She is passionate and you can see it threw her beautiful pictures 💓 I recommend her to everyone that are expecting babies she is truly amazing. Thank you so much again Elena my son’s pictures turned out PERFECT. XO
We love the photos that were captured by Elena. We did a 2 week photoshoot back in April and we dont regret the experience. Elena conducted the photoshoot in her home out of Manotick where she has a mini set. She offered us coffee and was very kind, professional and patient with my daughter who took a looong time to fall asleep (over an hour lol). All in all I'm thankful to have the photos, i look atvthem frequently because i cant believe how quickly she's growing!
I am super happy with the way the photos turned out for our 5 week old son. I really like Elena's style of photography because it highlights the features of each individual baby without too many unnecessary/distracting props and backgrounds. For our photos she used a mix of studio and natural light and both turned out great. She was great with my son from the moment we walked in the door. The environment is so calm and relaxing that I don't think he even woke up once for the first 2 hours! I would definitely recommend Elena to anyone considering doing newborn photos.
Motherhood can be challenging at times, you want to achieve a lot yet you do not have much time. I was able to enjoy my baby’s photoshoot with the talented Elena. My baby was born 2 months ahead and so she spent some time in the NICU, I was robbed of time and of having an actual newborn photoshoot.
Elena walked me through the process of booking and choosing which session I wanted, I was never pushed to make a booking or to go with a bigger package. She was cordial, patient and understanding. When my baby was finally released from the hospital and able to be around other people, Elena booked me in on a day that worked for us.
A week before the appointment she encouraged me to find poses that I wanted her to try with my baby (I wanted the baby on top of my wedding dress but on the day of the photoshoot I realized that it was sealed). She also coached me on what to do and what to bring on the day of the photoshoot.
When the day came, we were greeted in her beautiful studio, she had brought snacks for my husband and I (I was so thankful as I was nervous and hadn’t eaten anything). She encourages us to feed Ariana and make her as comfortable as possible.
Elena took her, dressed her (she asked for Ariana’s approximate weight to ensure she had the change of clothes for her). I wanted to be involved in the photoshoot but then I realized that Elena had everything under control and that I was making my baby fussy so I decided to step away from the set and let Elena do her magic, while I sipped on my coffee and snacked Elena was hard at work taking pictures, changing and calming Ariana. It was such a relaxed and chill ambiance, she had some heat, low light and ocean sound to relax Ariana. My baby did not help, she was awake and did not stay still.
I highly recommend Elena Helali (Ottawa Newborn Photographer), she’s professional, she’s creative, she’s an artist. She captured my little bundle of joy’s cuteness. She made such fabulous work that you cannot tell that Ariana is too big. Book with her, you will not be disappointed of her work!
Elena took fabulous pictures of my son when he was a newborn. She was so gentle and caring in posing him and was incredibly patient as she went about the photo shoot. The end results were amazing photos that we will cherish forever.
Elena did such an amazing job on my daughters newborn photos! She handled my little girl with so much care and made sure that I was also comfortable during the entire shoot. The results are amazing photos we’ll cherish for years to come! So thankful for her services!
