If there was a leaderboard for “Best Dressed Baby: Fall 2012″, M would most certainly be on it. I can’t even handle the sportcoat with elbow patches! He looked perfectly dapper for his one-year formal portraits, and effortlessly pulled off a few vintage-inspired fall looks.
His birthday party theme was Dr. Suess, and we ran with that for our cakesmash! Sweet Indulgence created another perfect Cat in The Hat cake, and we had so much fun making truffula trees in the studio for it. Thing 1 and Thing 2 made another appearance, too. I think it turned out awesome, and M seemed to agree!
Happy Birthday, M! We can’t wait to meet your new younger sibling soon!
These gorgeous girls came to play with us last week in the studio! Mom wanted to do a pink and turquoise theme, and I LOVE how cute the turquoise pettiskirt and ruffle romper look together in our damask chair. They’re sporting our signature Heidi Hope Blossom Bands, too!
Both girls were so photogenic! C was a great model and big sister, helping little A through the session when she was unsure of having her portrait taken. W family, enjoy the preview!
This session was so much fun! M and D wanted to document their pregnancy with artistic, abstract shots that reflected the Heidi Hope style. It was fun for me to try out some different compositions and creative ways of showing M’s beautiful belly and the obvious love D has for her.
They’re so excited for their baby girl to arrive, and we are, too! We can’t wait to see you back in the studio with little M.
Talk about a glowing mama! The HHP studio has known the W family since before the birth of C, who has been a fabulous model for every shoot he’s had with us. He was up for every shot we tried- including a new one with the whole family kissing. I love how it came out!
We headed outside to the local park for some foliage photos at the end. Love that we’re able to shoot with Fall wardrobe and leaves now!
We’ll see you soon, W family, and can’t wait to meet your new little one!
I first met adorable baby G back at her newborn session last year. She was a Gerber baby back then, looking just like a doll as she slept. If it’s possible, G was even more adorable as a 1 year old, running around the apple orchard. Her disposition was so sweet! After chatting with mom, we decided not to do a cake smash and to instead focus the session on G and portraits of them all together as a family. The orchard was a perfect spot for her to play and the apples were a big hit! And can we talk about those boots? They kill me! Enjoy your sneak peek!
It was a full house in the studio last week with 4-year old J, 2 year-old B, and 7-month-old F! These siblings were so good for us. We started out in the studio with some super-cute group shots, and went to the park at the end of the session to take advantage of the great weather!
J and B were such great big brothers to F. You can see in the last shot that they didn’t hesitate to give her kisses on her cheeks, and she clearly loved it. She smiled away for the whole session, and we managed to do three quick ‘baby’ sets for her while the boys were taking a break.
I can’t wait for you to see the whole gallery, P family! We’ll see you soon!
The H family was so much fun to hang out with! They loved all the props I brought to the bay, and were up for anything…even jumping together. The littles were really into the shoot, too- suggesting poses and things the family could do in front of the camera. “How about we all sit on that rock?” and “Let’s hug each other!” I love subjects that suggest poses for me!
Mom wanted candids of the kids playing together, and I love how they came out. I can tell these two are great friends and siblings to each other already!
Enjoy your sneak peek, H family!
This is my THIRD newborn session for this gorgeous family in the past 3 years! Mom and dad now have quite the crew and still somehow manage to show up completely put together and laid back. Big brothers D (3) and D (1) were amazing with their little sister. It was fun to finally break out the girl colors and props for princess E who slept so sweetly through our session. Some of my favorite photos are of everyone interacting together. It’s so clear to see how E has completed this family when capturing everyone’s love for her. Enjoy your sneak peek!
M’s first shoot with us was when she was pregnant with her first son, D. Heidi did her maternity shoot back then, and the newborn shoot when he arrived! Now, D is going to be a big brother, and the whole family is so excited to see if he’ll have a little brother or sister!
It’s always fun working with families that have been with Heidi Hope for years, because I can see how their families have grown through their pictures. For this shoot, I looked back through their other galleries, and we recreated some shots from the first maternity session. What a great way to connect both shoots and make new memories, too!
V family, we can’t wait to meet the new addition!
What an adorable family! I love how this whole session came out. 3.5 year old B and 7-month old M were so good with each other, and I can’t believe how many sibling shots we got where they’re both looking at the camera! Quite impressive. We played with boats, the sand, and ended the session with a dip in the water (not me!).
Great to work with you, P family!
