I'm an American expat, writer. photographer. and old-fashioned romantic in love with celebrating the simple joys of daily life. I appreciate timelessness, the natural world, and a slow life lived with simplicity and intention. When I'm not photographing families or  slowly traveling the world and writing about it in a little notebook, I'm happily grounding myself in nature and cozying up with my sweet husband.

If you’ve ever wanted to meet me personally and get to know the gal behind the lens and the “Helena Woods blog”, you might enjoy this fun interview I had on the Airy Fairy Feminist podcast!

In this podcast episode, I chat with Charlotte about how my journey with photography started (yes, it might have started with a tarot card….).

Helena Woods interviewed on the spiritual podcast Airy Fairy Feminist with Charlotte Kaye about boundary setting, working as a freelancer, hygge and living from your intuition

Helena Woods on the Airy Fairy Feminist Podcast 

In this “Be You” episode with Charlotte Kaye of the Airy Fairy Feminist podcast I chat with Charlotte about an array of fun topics from feminism to creating a cozy hygge routine,  setting boundaries and finding trust as a freelancer.

I give a few tips on staying present while taking photos while traveling and the best advice I could ever give. 

We even chat about our mutual love of Harry Potter and our generation’s love for the book series. 

We talk about how having a truly peaceful and joyful life is by seeking joy from within rather than looking for external rewards, results and approval. It all stems from loving yourself and the present life around you. Appreication: the secret to lasting and consistent joy.

Hygge Pen Pals 

Lastly, I discuss with Charlotte about my love for old-fashioned letter writing and after the episode ended, we decided to form a community called Hygge Pen Pals! 

If you’ve always wanted to have a penpal in a different part of the world and receive actual letters AND make new friends with kindred spirits, this might be the place for you.
⁣⁣
I hope you enjoy this fun conversation! Please feel free to share the episode with others if it resonates with you.

I'm Helena! As a creative storyteller, I document magical, emotionally honest family and children's portraiture. A lover of childhood, fairytales and natural light, I photograph families across the world. I'm the ultimate Disney nerd, and I'm obsessed with cats and expressing my love for the simple joys of slow, daily life.
