(We posted this last Spring, but wanted to bring it back for this year’s Spring family sessions!)
Thinking of doing a family shoot this year, but nervous about finding coordinating outfits for a group? We’ve got you covered! All you need is one piece to get started, and it’s a breeze from there.
Stylists know that the key to group styling is a balance of colors, textures, fabrics, and patterns. This guide will give you an example of how to achieve this balance, while still keeping the group comfortable and stylish. We’ll give you one example here, but this concept can be applied to any season and any look.
All pieces shown are from J.Crew. Happy Shopping!
Being inspired by all the fashion coverage these past weeks from Coachella festival! Festival fashion is fun, free-sprited, and fearless! I combined festival fashion with one of my other favorite trend…neon! I’d love to spend a day in the sun in this bright outfit! The best part about festival fashion is that its over the top while keeping a laid back feel. So go ahead and put on a large stone necklace while rocking sandals and dance the day away! ~ Caroline

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 first met this happy baby girl back in 2011 when she and her big brother visited our studio for portraits. We stayed in touch online and through the wonderful community of moms at Bellani Maternity over the years.
We were on our Holiday break this year when I saw the story spread over facebook. A family in our community was struggling with the recent diagnosis of their young daughter. She had gone into the doctors with a stomach bug and then their world had changed. I soon found out it was Belle and her final diagnosis was pre-B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) . I just couldn’t wrap my head around the sudden news. I sent mom a message as soon as I heard. Whenever she was ready, whenever Belle was ready, I wanted to be there for them in any way that I could.
I have worked with many families fighting childhood illness through The Tiny Sparrow Foundation over the past few years. It has been the most meaningful part of what I do as a photographer. I know how much photos can mean to families fighting through treatment and recovery. I also knew how much Belle’s beautiful curls meant to her mom. Not for their physical beauty, or the soft way they framed her baby doll face, but because they were a symbol of Belle’s babyhood. They were a symbol of Belle before their world was turned upside-down. I know I would have felt exactly like Belle’s mom did. Yes, those curls will grow back, surely more beautiful than ever, but I would have wanted to hold onto them as long as I could. I had to get to the hospital and capture Belle’s curls.
Belle and her mom are some of the strongest girls I’ve ever met. Mom has been incomprehensibly positive and tenacious for her daughter. They amaze me and everyone else they meet. Belle had already fought through over two weeks of treatment and wasn’t feeling great the day I visited. We had endless fun, girly, dress-up toys to make her smile, but she mostly wanted her Elmo, her mommy, and her cozy blanket. You know what? That Elmo and blanket looked pretty perfect to me and there is nothing more beautiful than a mother’s love.
Plus, this isn’t the last photo shoot you’ll see with Belle here. We’ll be catching up again, when she’s feeling much better. She has plenty of tutu-twirling ahead of her! This summer, her hair will be growing back and I probably won’t be able to keep up with her as she runs around outside. For now, I’m happy to have captured those sweet curls before her next chapter begins. You can read more about Belle’s story in her mother’s words on the Kent Macaroni Kids Blog.

Oh my gosh, is this not one of the cutest babies you have ever seen? I was totally in love with her from the first second she looked at me with those big brown eyes. Little Star sessions are some of my favorite and especially when babies are at this age. It feels like I’m just hanging out with mom and dad, playing dress up with their little one. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I’m working! M was so sweet. She indulged us in plenty of adorable outfits and sets. I’m wondering how I’ll ever choose favorites for this gallery! Enjoy your sneak peek!

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!

Gorgeous baby A came to visit the studio this week and her session was one of my favorite 3 month old sessions to date! She was A: Gorgeous, B: So happy, and C: Incredibly adored by her parents. We focused the session on capturing their family bond and of course had to snap a few of just A herself. As you can see, she’s the steals the show!
This little boy was a dream to photograph. He went from being kind-of sleepy to SUPER sleepy and never woke up once! He let us pose away and the images of him on our blue chair are some of my absolute favorite. Mom loved the our chair shots on the antique pink chair but I was thinking it might look too “girly”. So she said “what about that chair in your front hall?” It was perfect! Thanks for the inspiration mom. Enjoy your sneak peek!
