Happy Birthday, baby J! This little guy has the sweetest personality, as you can see in his photos. He was hesitant of the camera at first, but quickly got into the photoshoot groove, playfully interacting with the camera for the whole session.
We’ve had a lot of nautical cake smash themes this year, but nobody had done an ‘under the sea’ set until this one! I loved making all of the creatures, and J was mesmerized by the fish swimming around him. Thanks to Sweet Indulgence for the friendly shark cake!
Best. Baby. Ever. Seriously, this little guy rocked his session in record time. He just sat and smiled at me. He has 2 darling big sisters at home, so I think he fully enjoyed his time in the spotlight during a session just for him. We kept things classic with a few fun props to mix it up. I loved the tie and fedora mom brought along, but L looked just as adorable in anything we put him in! L, come back and play anytime!
Remember this cutie with his planes and snowboard? Throwback Thursday is my good excuse to share more family photos from K’s session. We wanted the session to be really fun, candid, joyful, and kinetic, so we laughed, smiled, and kept things moving. Don’t you almost want to be a part of this family after seeing these? So stylish and fun!
R was one of the most beautiful newborns I have ever seen. Her skin, her lashes, her rosebud lips…. perfection! As soon as I saw her I remarked to mom and dad about how amazingly gorgeous she is! Each time a new person in the studio came in to help us out, they said the exact same thing! R started our session a bit alert but was quickly snoozing away on the beanbag. We kept the whole session simple and timeless and focused on all of her perfect little features. Enjoy your sneak peek mom and dad!
I’m finally getting caught up after a whirlwind trip to Seattle to teach at the Chic Retreat last week. I had a fun week leading up to my trip and I’ve been dying to share these last previews with you. The S family has been patiently waiting for a sneak peek of their little cutie H, who visited the studio almost 2 weeks ago to celebrate her first birthday. H was 100% one-year-old sweetness, so her cupcake themed cakesmash was perfectly fitting. Big sister C had a similar theme 2 years ago, so mom and I came up with this set to coordinate with C’s session while being new and special for H. Her cupcake print dress inspired the set. I love all of the soft blue with her beautiful blue eyes. You can check out how we made the Tissue Paper Pom Poms in this Tips Tuesday Post. Mom dressed the whole family perfectly for our session. Simple, classic shades of blue work perfectly in our studio. Great seeing you again S family, enjoy your sneak peek!
Such a sweet session from last summer! E is walking and talking now, and it’s fun to look back at how little she was in her lovely parents’ arms. This makes me excited for all of the outdoor family sessions coming up this summer!
I wish I could share this entire shoot with you today, but I must keep some things a surprise for the gallery viewing! Baby T was so much fun to photograph at her first birthday session last week. She had the most gorgeous outfits, but nothing could compare to how gorgeous she is! She also LOVED digging into her cake. She went right for it and after the first bite, she was double-fisting for the rest of the session. We had so many fun sets, I had a hard time choosing favorites to blog today. Now, I’m headed off to the west coast to teach at the Chic Retreat in Seattle. This will be my last blog post until next week, when I’ll get all caught up with previews. The rest of the HHP team will be here keeping you company in my absence! I hope you all have a great week! ~ Heidi
I had so much fun at this newborn and family session last week in the studio. It was easy to see how much baby E was already adored by her parents and siblings. It felt like a morning visiting with old friends. We captured some beautiful portraits, played movies for the kids, and caught up on all that was new since we last visited. Mom came with lots of great keepsakes for me to incorporate including her wedding dress (where baby E is happily sleeping below) and the most adorable set of leg warmers I’ve ever seen. Add to that our fresh spring flowers and all of E’s beautiful little features and we had a session fit for a princess! Enjoy your sneak peek!
This little one came to us just about a year ago when he was first born. Here he is, so tiny and new:
And here he is a year later, full of personality, humor, and just as much sweetness! We learned that R loves water and music now, so we let him play with our nautical-themed props and our fun musical instruments. Mom owns a dance studio up in MA, and you can tell he’s got rhythm, too- he started dancing as soon as he got into the studio! He also loved smashing his cake at the end of the shoot, and thought frosting on his feet was pretty hilarious.
Happy Birthday, baby R! We’re so happy to have been a part of your first year!
I was so excited to catch up with this little love for her first birthday celebration. She was one of the last newborns I photographed before having Grace, and I remember how much I enjoyed all of those baby cuddles. I’ve loved keeping in touch with mom online and I think we’ve been excited about this cake smash ever since A’s newborn session! Mom picked out the perfect dress for A. It was stunning with her eyes. They were the most amazing cornflower blue color with long, dark lashes. A took a little while to dig into her cake. She wasn’t quite sure about getting messy. After a few minutes though, she decided she was okay with the mess in exchange for a few big bites of her cake! Then, she loved it! So great seeing you again F family. Enjoy your sneak peek!
