Hey there, I’m Helena!

I’m a small-town photographer, writer, and story-teller with big dreams. Originally from sunny San Diego, I’m currently living in Old Town Alexandria although I now live a semi-nomadic lifestyle in my quest to capture stunning life moments from my expeditions and adventures across the globe.

Most days, you’ll find me exploring a new destination, wearing a vintage skirt, a camera and notebook in hand with a smile on my face and my boyfriend by my side. I’m a travel blogger, a photographer, and a huge animal lover — plus, I’ve always got my bags packed for my next big adventure. I’m an avid journal-er, scuba diver, chocolate mousse connoisseur, and lover of all things magical and mystical.

I love to document life. From journaling and scrap-booking to taking endless Polaroids in my day-to-day life, I just love to capture it all! I deeply value life and the memories that come with it, and photography is a natural extension of my way to celebrate life and the people I meet along the way!

My blog Wildlife With Woods is an extension of this love. This site covers a variety of topics ranging from travel, animal rights activism, my adventures in scuba diving, photography and conscious-living. I’m glad you’re here to join the journey!

Whether I’m hiking active volcanoes in Costa Rica and Bali, climbing red rocks in Moab, or scuba diving in the tropics taking stunning imagery of aquatic life,  I strive to pursue fresh challenges and unique storytelling through my images. When I’m not living and fostering dogs in the D.C. area, you can find me gallivanting the world, capturing stunning imagery of earth’s natural wonders and the peaceful creatures that inhabit it.
