We had a fun time running around with V at the studio last week for her 2nd birthday session. She was one of the busiest two-year-olds I’ve ever photographed, but when she’d glance at the camera for a split second, it was magic! V is gorgeous with her big brown eyes, long beautiful lashes, and the delicate curls that frame her face. Two year old cake smashes are even more fun than our first birthdays because by two, kids actually understand what fun it is to have a giant cake all to themselves. V was still hesitant to get messy, so we stopped for a few clean ups in between bites. She was adorable trying to put the cake back on to the stand anytime it fell off! Enjoy your sneak peek!
I haven’t seen baby V since her newborn session last year and she is every bit as beautiful at 1 year old as she was at just a few days old! I remember swooning over her gorgeous lashes at her newborn session and they still grace those big brown eyes. V’s sleepy days are now replaced with toddling around and exploring her world. She was sometimes serious and sometimes full of smiles, but always a little princess! Mom wanted something soft and girly for the cake smash and Sweet Indulgence’s ballerina cake complimented our set perfectly. Enjoy your sneak peek!
Our second product showcase is for our custom-designed cards! Our graphic designer, Meg, designs cards for our clients using their personal style, party theme, or even nursery decor for inspiration. She creates birth announcements, party invitations, greeting cards, holiday cards, or anything else you dream up using your Heidi Hope images!
We’d love to show you some. First, some pretty pink birth announcements:
Then, cute tri-fold cards for party invites and just saying hello:
We can’t forget this golf-inspired first birthday party invite, using photos from a cake smash shoot!
Lastly, our favorite holiday cards from 2011 (never too soon to start planning 2012′s holiday shoot!):
Each card is unique and completely customizable. Meg has also created custom card templates for photographers, which you can find here!
I can’t believe another one of my adorable baby planners is graduating! I have loved getting to know this family over the past year and capturing their special milestones with baby J. My baby planners feel like family to me by the time the year is over, and like always, this cake smash was a little bittersweet. I wanted to ask mom and dad, “when are you having another one?!” as they left. J was a happy little guy as always and he managed to get covered in cake in a matter of seconds. I just adore that little dimple! Enjoy your sneak peek!
I last saw this adorable little man over a year ago when he was just 1 month old. He visited the studio last week to celebrate his first birthday, this time with an entourage! G was quick on his feet and gave us all a good work out. In Gucci from head to toe he had no shortage of style AND personality. He even let me wear those fabulous shades. Enjoy your sneak peek!
Another one of my 2011 newborns celebrated their big first birthday with us last week! I think my favorite part of doing cake smashes, besides the studio smelling so yummy, is that I get to see all of the adorable babies I once cuddled and capture their big personalities. We had a great session with baby L. Classic baby boy met nautical in each of our sets and L had a ball the whole way through. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I first met this little princess at her newborn session 2 years ago and I’ve adored watching her grow and capturing her big personality ever since! At 2 years old, A is at an age full of curiosity and playfulness. She loved trying out every toy in the studio. Mom warned us ahead of time that A might not want to make a mess with her cake so we came up with the perfect way for A to have her cake AND keep her table manners; a cake smash tea party! Complete with utensils and wipes, A enjoyed celebrating her 2nd birthday sans mess. Enjoy your sneak peek!
Another one of my adorable baby planners is celebrating his first birthday. Baby Z visited the studio last week for his first birthday cake smash portrait session and we had such fun together. He is such a happy baby and those big blue eyes make me melt. Such a charmer! We started with his traditional portraits and then created a St. Patrick’s day themed set for him to dig into his well-earned treat. He laughed and smiled the whole way through our session. Can’t wait to show you the rest mom and dad. Enjoy the sneak peek!
I was so excited to see baby H again for his first birthday. I last saw this gorgeous family for their maternity and newborn sessions and can hardly believe it has already been a year! Baby H has gotten so big. He was so sweet and full of smiles. One of the easiest 1-year-olds I’ve ever photographed! We started with some family portraits and topped the session off with a cake smash to celebrate H’s first birthday. H loved his cake, especially getting his feet in it. I’m still cracking up over these. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I had so much fun celebrating J’s first birthday last week. I haven’t seen him since he was just a few days old so I couldn’t get over how much he has grown! J was a typical boy on the move who loved exploring the studio. At one point we were trying to get his attention and mom grabbed her cell phone to play his favorite song. On comes “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5 and you should have seen J move! He was so excited, he started dancing up a storm. I’m laughing just looking at all of these pictures for the preview. Then it was time to get down to business with his cake. I love the way our nautical set turned out and J really seemed to enjoy himself in it. Happy birthday baby J! Enjoy your sneak peek!
And because I can’t go without sharing one of how teeny J was just a year ago:
