If you love Pinterest like we do, you’ve surely seen some of these portraits pinned. It has to be one of our most popular shoots of all time! Kerri Cupcake and I planned it all out back in 2010. We wanted to do something creative and fun just for ourselves. Kerri and Sweet Indulgence designed this amazing confections table with every treat imaginable while the HHP team and I transformed the studio into a Mermaid paradise with hanging lanterns, silk pillows, soft streamers, a real sand floor and bubbles galore! We gathered up a group of adorable girls ranging from 2-5 and we let them dance and play in their dream world. Most of them didn’t want to leave. This shoot made a beautiful spread in the 2012 issue of Bliss Celebrations magazine and has made countless pin boards and blogs since! Here it is, The Heidi Hope Photography and Sweet Indulgence Mermaid Party from early 2011.

I adore when these two little ones come to visit us for photos! Big brother M is a complete sweetheart. Take the day of our session for example. He asked mom to stop and pick up donuts and delivered them down to us in our office. He’s just as kind to his little sister, as you can see below. Gorgeous little sis M always steals the show with her smile. Last year she was so busy during our session that I was always chasing after her. This year she LOVED the camera. Total ham! We had fun running around the studio and catching up with mom and dad… and we got some pretty perfect photos while we were at it! Enjoy your sneak peek. These are going to be some fabulous Christmas cards! ~ Heidi
Last summer I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable family during the kids’ birthday week. We had a fun session at the park, playing guitar and running around! This time around we headed down to the bay to play. We had one HOT session! It was mid day, almost 90 degrees, humid and we had virtually no shade, but the whole family were troopers and we got some adorable photos. I broke out lots of fun toys to match their vintage style T-shirts at the start of the session, then we switched to classic nautical for some family photos. At the end, we just couldn’t resist cooling off with our toes in the water and getting a shot of the littlest man in his new big boy pants! That one totally melts me. Enjoy your sneak peek and happy birthday kids!!
