Welcome to

My studio in the center of Helsinki

An experience to heal and empower.
To feel confident and free.
To leave a legacy for generations of loved ones to cherish.

Founder

Shanshan Gong

I was never excited to photograph models. I am most excited to transform and photograph those “everyday” people who might even hate being in front of the camera, because those people need it the most.

I feel like more balanced nowadays. But I was a giver and people pleaser for many years.  I still deeply feel those who are the caretakers of their family and friends, those who probably have been ignoring themselves a little. And I want to help those to feel ok to love themselves and open the doors for receiving more love and care from the universe.

I am a certified life coach and law of attraction practitioner: Love, trust, compassion are my highest values. I promise that i will take care of you and make you feel comfortable and beautiful in my space.

International Award-Winning Portrait

I love classic and timeless portraits which never go out of trend. But I love more to bring out the best in people no matter what genre and visual styles my clients wants me to work with.

Your Experience will be like no other

We humans are like onions. We come in layers. All layers are beautiful. We could be playful, wise, happy, calm, melankolic, romantic, edge and all that.. A photoshoot with me, we are exploring many different layers of you.

Confidence/Self-love Coaching Before the shoot

Lets first help you to identify areas you can work with to love yourself more, care for yourself more and value yourself more.

Let’sactively cause something to happenMore (Definitions, Synonyms, Translation)

Pro Makeup & Hair

Makeup & Hair that bring out the best in you. We specialize in natural glam style makeover that is best for the camera.

Studio Wardrobe

I have casual outfits as well as over 50 cocktail dresses & gowns. They are size 34-46. If nothing fits I will either buy something or drape some fabric to make a gown in the shoot.

Fully Guided Shoot

It is not your job to know how to pose or use face expression. I will guide you every step of the way,  so we can together discover the best angles, poses and expressions.

Full edit

I will edit photos in a way that you stand out from the scene. Any blemishes and break out will be removed. You can decide the level of the editing to your own liking.

Fine Art Printing

I will use the best quality material from Germany, UK and Italy to create heirloom worthy prints in beautiful frames and boxes.

My Portfolio

Prices

The price has been rising steadily since the business started for the 3 reasons below.

1, It is time consuming to personalize every shoot for my clients and deliver the quality you see in my portfolio.

2, There is increasing demand of my work.

3, Growing wardrobe, props and product range provided in the studio for your experience.

However, I will always honor the price as of the time of booking and give perks to loyal customers and can schedule your shoot 6 to 12 months prior.
