Have you ever wondered what it would be like to peek inside the doors of one of the country’s most successful portrait studios?
Are you looking to improve both your technical photography & posing skills AND your ability to turn those skills into a profitable business?
Do you learn better with hands-on experiences and 1 on 1, individualized feedback on your work?
Are you ready for your photography to make a greater impact?
The photography industry is a crowded place. It takes more than just beautiful photography for your work to be seen and your business to be successful. While our colorful, whimsical photography is recognized around the world, it is actually our business foundation that has grown and sustained Heidi Hope Photography in an ever-changing market over the past decade.
By continuing to re-invent our business model we have been able to change our passion for photography from making a little extra grocery money on the side into a multi-million dollar business that supports our family and our employees.
The Heidi Hope 2-Day Baby Photography Workshop is a photography and business workshop that will help you improve your technical skills as a photographer and encourage creativity while focusing on growing a successful baby’s first year portrait business in a crowded marketplace.
We’ll go over the foundations of Business Plans, Pricing and Branding so that you gain clarity around the direction of your business and stand out from your competition.
We’ll also discuss how the photography market has changed over the past 5 years and what you can do to evolve with these new technologies and ways of doing business.
Each workshop ends with 1 on 1 personalized feedback and Q&A time with Heidi so that you can get individualized help with the direction of your work from both an artistic and business standpoint.

Join us in our beautiful 3,000 square foot studio by the bay and see exactly how we pose and photograph our favorite subjects! Our 2-Day workshop intensive is designed to give you the most important technical and business aspects to setting up a successful baby’s first year business model.
