Let’s Talk Fine Art

Fine art portraits blend creative vision, aesthetics, and artistry to tell a unique story and convey emotion. While I deeply value consistency and cohesiveness in my work, I craft bespoke portraits for all my muses. Embarking on this adventure means creating portraits that expresses your personal message.

Together we plan all the details, but leave room for creative experimentation so that we can have plenty of fun crafting art. Whether you envision an editorial inspired look or a painterly masterpiece in armor, we'll create powerful portraits of you. All you need to do, is choose your adventure!

Masterpiece

FAIRYTALE FLAIR

Masterpiece portraits are inspired by paintings of the old masters. They are staged and carefully crafted around a theme you chose. They are historically inspired pieces with a pinch of fantasy, some fairy tale flair, theatrical costumes, and unique props. If you've always wanted to be a medieval warrior, a baroque queen, renaissance angel, this is the right choice for you.

Editorial

CONTEMPORARY AESTHETICS

The editorial experience is all about magazine-worthy portraits. They are strong, glamorous, elegant, and authentic. They have a modern touch, reflected in the wardrobe and posing. Whether you want to wear a dramatic gown or a romantic dress, I got you.

Bespoke Portraits Made in Vienna

Hi, I'm Hajnalka. Your portrait photographer in Vienna, Austria.

Empowering and inspiring women is what lights me up, and I feel a deep sense of joy in helping others become their best selves. What else can you expect from someone who’s been an educator for over 20 years? It’s literally who I am.

I firmly believe that by crafting beautiful portraits of you I can make a positive impact on the way you see yourself. But for this magic to happen, you need a photographer you get on with. So, let’s find out if we’re a match.

Kind words from Clients

WHAT HEROINES AND MUSES SAY ABOUT THE PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE

The principle of true art is not to portray, but to evoke.

― Jerzy Kisinksi

Gift yourself a gift of self-love

BECAUSE YOU DESERVE TO BE ART

Many don't realize the profound impact a photographer can have on how you feel before, during, and after your portrait session. Sure, most photographers will take good pictures, but how will they make you feel? Will they direct you and make you feel like the badass warrior you are? Will they provide an experience that leaves you wanting more?

You’re not just hiring a photographer to take pictures. Creating epic portraits requires a photographer who’s involved in the planning, who guides you, and who makes you feel safe, respected, and valued every step of the way.

The Heroines and Muses portrait experience is all about the process and telling your story. It goes beyond the portrait session. It’s more than just images; it’s a production tailored to make you feel like the heroine you are. This is the ultimate gift of self-love.

You deserve this. Say yes to yourself and be the art you're proud to display in your home!

dreams come to life."

Frequently Asked Questions

WHY SHOULD I DO THIS?

Because you are valuable and deserve beautiful portraits of yourself. You deserve to be a muse, you deserve to be celebrated and seen. Your portraits will honour your journey, no matter in what stage of your life you are in.

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PORTRAIT SESSIONS?

These personalised portrait sessions are designed to create art with and for you. The portraits we craft of you are carefully considered, masterfully lensed and come as gorgeous fine art prints that you can treasure for years to come. Quality over quantity is my motto.

I DON’T THINK I’M PHOTOGENIC, WILL I STILL LOOK GOOD IN PHOTOS?

Being photogenic is a myth. Every woman can and should have gorgeous portraits of themselves. I will help you to feel relaxed and confident in front of the camera. We will craft portraits that you’ll love.

I’M VERY NERVOUS ABOUT BEING PHOTOGRAPHED

Everyone is a bit nervous in front of the camera. It’s completely normal. Most of my clients have little to no experience being photographed. It's my job to help you relax and feel safe when being photographed. There is no pressure to perform, you should just be yourself.

WHAT IS A VIEWING AND ORDERING APPOINTMENT?

The viewing and ordering appointment is immediately after your portrait session when you get to see your images and choose the ones you love and want to purchase. Plan about an hour for this.

HOW LONG IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY PORTRAIT SESSION?

To be able to give my clients the attention they deserve, I only offer a very limited number of sessions each month. The average waiting time is between one to three months. This period also allows me to plan your bespoke portrait session thoroughly for an unforgettable experience.
