If you’ve been following along with us for the past year, you’ve heard me rave about our new video portraits after having them done for my own family. I want everyone I know to do this for their family! It is laid back, fun, and the resulting video will take your breath away. I was so excited when the W family decided to add on our video portraits to their cake smash session. I first met them back when I was pregnant with Grace and mom was expecting S. Then, I got to cuddle adorable baby S as a newborn when I was in my last trimester. I was thrilled to be celebrating S’s first birthday last week and even more excited to capture the milestone for their family through both pictures and the videography. A cake smash is so much fun on video because it is so full of action! S dug right into her cake and was soon laughing and clapping at her first taste. Thank you so much for such a fun afternoon W family, and enjoy your sneak peek. We’ll be adding in the video sneak preview later this week, so check back for it!
And here is a sneak peek of S’s Video!
I loved this little birthday girl and her gorgeous family! S was so full of personality. She loved crawling around the studio and was so proud of her new standing skills. Mom and dad were up for anything and chatting with them made our shoot fly by. We started our session with some sweet family portraits that I know they will love having with baby S while she’s still their little baby. Then S stole the show! From our simple classics in all white to our colorful cakesmash, this is going to be one huge gallery. Enjoy your sneak peek!

Warning: you may drool on your keyboard while reading this post. I had the pleasure of taking some product shots for Sweet Indulgence sweet shop this past weekend. They catered an amazing candy table at a local bridal shower that was almost too beautiful to eat! I said almost. I now want one of these at every event I host. Yummy stuff ladies! Enjoy your preview ;0)
Reinvention inspires me. Perhaps I just bore easily, but you’ll not often catch me doing the same thing twice. Every session I’m adjusting, perfecting, trying to top what I did last time! That is one of the things I love most about photography. It can be such a transient medium.
Yesterday I had so much fun switching things up. Now that everyone is doing cake smashes, I started thinking, “This is getting a bit boring. How can I do it differently?” I’ll tell you how. Hike up the steps to the top of Bunker Hill and let this little princess smash her cake there! This baby girl was one of my favorite newborn sessions to date so I was thrilled to head into Boston and help capture her first birthday in style. Mom and dad recommended the spot and it was perfect. Baby D was adorable. She kept holding up her little finger to show us she was turning one years old! I had so much fun seeing you all again, mom, dad and D. Thank you for having me up. I truly have the most fabulous clients!
How about this cake?! Kerri Fusco, owner of the oh-so-good Sweet Indulgences, recently stopped into my studio. I knew of her from some of the fabulous sweets served at Twin Oaks Restaurant. Kerri and I were fast friends and quickly scheming up some amazing projects for this spring. I was blown away when I finally walked into her sweet-tooth heaven and I am so excited for our collaboration in the coming months. Thank you for all of your generosity Kerri and the gorgeous sweets to come ;0) Visit us on facebook: Sweet Indulgences and Heidi Hope!
