Storyboards are my favorite product that clients order. These are my favorite because they are super customizable and are beautifully stunning when displayed on a wall.
This weeks featured size is a 16×24 storyboard. These 16×24′s are very popular for all types of sessions.
16×24 storyboards are one of our most popular sizes by far! The tricky part my clients face is picking the right amount of images and the orientation because it really matters! This week tip I focus on 3 to 4 image storyboard because thats the average number picked. I’ve done up to nine images on one board though! These are great visual layouts to help pick images because whether its a canvas or in an Organic Bloom frame the goal is to make the images look balanced.
I’m a pretty good secret-keeper… when I have to be! From new pregnancies, to gender reveals, to proposals, we often get to be “in” on some of life’s best surprises! I was so excited to be let in on the secret of J’s pregnancy back in the fall. I’ve been photographing their family of 4 for a few years now, and I know just how much this baby will be adored (and already is!). Big brother and sister are all ready to welcome new baby and I could feel the excitement they had throughout our session. They are some of my 2013 baby-planners, so get ready to see this baby celebrated into 2014! Enjoy your sneak peek!
This maternity session was almost 4 years in the making. Mom and dad first found Heidi Hope Photography when they moved to Connecticut and were expecting their first daughter. They booked a maternity session with me, but baby A came very early and our maternity session never happened. We had an amazing newborn session and I’ve enjoyed taking their family portraits ever since. When the W family found out that baby number 2 was on the way, mom called us right away to make that maternity session happen this time around. We scheduled it much earlier than usual just in case “newt” (as they affectionately call baby number 2) decided to make an early appearance like his/her big sis! It was a good thing we did because mom was put on modified bed rest a few weeks ago. When we spoke on the phone she said “I’m taking it easy… the only thing I’m going out for is our session! I just have to make it until then!” And she did. In fact, not even Blizzard Nemo could stop us. Nemo came blowing in on the day of our session, but we kept and eye on the weather and moved our shoot up to early morning so we could squeeze it in before the storm started. By the end of our time together, snow started lightly falling outside the studio windows. We couldn’t shoot on the day of a historic blizzard without heading out into the snow for a photo or two. This family was up for anything! I had a hard time choosing favorites for this sneak preview because I love them all. Enjoy your extra large sneak peek. I hope it was worth the 4 year wait! ~ Heidi

I am loving the portraits from this maternity session. Mom-to-be was perfectly gorgeous and up for anything. We had a fun casual session capturing her growing bump. I always love getting to know clients through maternity session. By the time they arrive with their newborn, I feel like we’re old friends! Enjoy your sneak peek!
I sure wish I looked this fabulous at 36 weeks pregnant! T was as personable as she was beautiful… truly glowing! She was up for anything and brought along great clothing. My favorite images are her bikini shots. What a fun summer maternity prop! I can’t wait to meet this baby in a few short weeks.
I knew we were about to have a fabulous session as soon as M walked through our door. She had fabulous style, amazing eyes, and a pregnant body you would never know was already 37 WEEKS! On top of that she was up for anything. This was my first maternity session since our recent boudoir marathon and I’m loving how that experience is informing my maternity work as well. I’m sure you’ll see some influences in M’s preview. Thanks for a wonderful session, can’t wait to meet your little one!
I was so thrilled when I heard the news months ago that a couple would be traveling from London to capture their maternity and newborn portraits with us! Seriously?!?! I wanted to make their portraits everything they hoped for and more so we started in the studio and then headed to the park for a few more colorful images. I love getting to know couples before baby arrives. I think it is great for them to see the studio and meet me before bringing their new bundle of joy in for the first time. Especially when they are traveling over the Atlantic to get here! C and M are totally gorgeous (as you can see) and made my job easy. I wish you could hear their charming accents right through the computer screen. They’re talking moving back to Boston someday and I hope it’s soon so that I can continue to capture this family as it grows! I can’t wait to hear your good news and meet your little on C and M. Thank you for choosing me to capture this special time in your lives. I can’t wait to show you your full gallery!
J and J visited the studio last week for their maternity session. J is expecting twin in just a few short weeks and I still can’t get over how fabulous she looked for our session. She was nervous shooting so close to her due date with twins on the way, but I think she’ll be happy she went through with the shoot once she sees these! I love getting to know clients before they come in for their newborn sessions. It’s really fun learning about them as a couple before baby makes three. J and J had great style and were so much fun to chat with. I can’t wait to meet their little ones!
Pregnancy is such a miracle. And I feel it every maternity session I photograph. T and P are about to be blessed with a double dose of miracle. That’s right, another set of twins to photograph soon! Can you believe how perfect her belly looks with not one, but two babies in there?! T, you were positively glowing! Enjoy your preview.
