Meet Abby Helmberger of HelmbergerGlam in Rockwall

Today we’d like to introduce you to Abby Helmberger.

Abby, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I grew up on a farm with six sisters and one baby brother at the end, being girly wasn’t in my nature as a kid I loved being a tom boy but as time went on and I reached high school I discovered a new found love for makeup and all the ways you could paint your face. I taught myself everything I needed to know to become a freelance MUA and it’s become my therapy. Whether I’m doing a bridal party, a photoshoot, proms or simply just a date night glam on someone I am excited because I know I have the ability to empower everyone through makeup. As time went on, I found myself wanting to learn more and more talents in the artist community, I’ve always loved modeling and editing photos and creating photoshoots in my head. December 2019 is when I finally took the leap into photography and I haven’t looked back since. I am constantly inspired and planning new ideas to create for people and I can’t wait to see where my journey takes me.

Has it been a smooth road?
I guess like all artists I felt like my hard work wasn’t getting the recognition I had hoped in the beginning. That’s not me saying I deserve praise but when you put time, money and hard creative work into something you have high hopes for it to be appreciated. Being a photographer has its up’s and down’s, everyone wants to be the best and everyone wants to create powerful art that will leave a good impression on people so I understand my constant fear of not being enough as a creative but I’ve also learned to appreciate every moment I get to have doing the jobs I love. I never regret anything I do or create, it’s all a lesson to become an even better version of myself.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
My business name “HelmbergerGlam” originated from my last name Helmberger because i wanted my brand to represent me along with my makeup background “Glam”. At first it was all about me being a makeup artist but my talents have grown farther to hair, makeup, photography, styling and creative director. I am quite literally an entire glam squad all in one. The thing I’m most proud of in my company is that I constantly improve my services I offer and how much I’ve grown this past year. Growth is something that I believe is the game changer for any business; if you can’t grow then where will you or your business ever go? What sets me apart from others is my ideas are authentic when it comes to creating a certain vision, I am not a cookie cutter artist. I strive for authenticity and I’m not afraid to speak my mind in a world of sensitive people. Keeping to your true self in an industry like this is very important to the clients you attract. I will always be the best I can be for any and every one and I flourish off of connections with people. And not many artists can say they can do your hair, makeup, photos, styling and direct can they?
