I’m so excited to share a little sneak peek into our January workshop today. 2 weeks ago, we had the pleasure of hosting photographers from around the world at our natural light studio in Cranston, Rhode Island for our Boutique Baby Photography Workshop. It is a fast paced few days full of learning, laughter, families, new photographer friends and most importantly, Sweet Indulgence cupcakes! The more we host these, the more I love sharing what we do! We talk biz (loooots of biz), eat yummy food, and pull off 4 live shoots with real local families. It’s a fun look into our every day world of studio photography here at HHP.
We have to say a huge thank you to the families featured below! They all have busy lives with young children and we are so grateful they took the time to come in and “model” for us. Models, we’ll be in touch in the next 2 weeks with all of your beautiful photos for you to keep. We’re on the look out for April newborns as well, so keep an eye out for that casting call on our facebook page and please share with any moms expecting around then.
The very best part about teaching is hearing from our attendees about how the workshop has inspired them to do great things! If you joined us for a workshop in the past, I’d love to hear from you! Send an email our way!
“I woke up today for the first time in 2 years ready to go to work!! Two years ago my little one was diagnosed with autism and I haven’t been the same since. The business and my passion for it was put on the back burner and I was just going with the punches just to stay afloat. I really just wanted to say thank you for opening that door for me again, to be “excited” to work again and build my dream business like I have always wanted. You are such an inspiration and I don’t think I could ever thank you enough or say enough wonderful things about the workshop. If my husband wouldn’t kill my I would come in April! Thank you again! xoxox” ~ January 2014 Workshop Attendee
“… Prior to the workshop, I was having some self doubts about getting my own company up and running, but after the workshop, I truly feel like I have a better understanding of the business. I’m feeling more confident as a photographer and I have found new motivation to get my business going and hopefully successful! It feels great to be excited about things again!” ~ January 2014 Workshop Attendee
Finally, a great big thanks to our Workshop Sponsors and Trusted Business Partners. They not only support our workshops, but they have helped our studio grow to be one of the most successful in the country from our very first days in business. They are all listed right at the bottom of this page. We can’t wait to hear from our attendees about their experience with us and we’re already looking forward to April’s Workshop! If you search for #hhpworkshops on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you can see more behind-the-scenes pics. I’ve shared some below from our awesome attendees and the HHP team! xo Heidi

“From the moment you walk into the front doors of Heidi Hope’s studio you know you’re going to have an amazing experience! Heidi and her team have prepared the most inviting atmosphere – from the cupcakes to the little gift bags, little notebooks for each attendee with matching pencils – her attention to detail and organization are incredible! But the best part of Heidi’s workshop is the warmth, enthusiasm and willingness to share every aspect of her business. Heidi’s business partner and husband is ready to teach you everything you need and want to know about the business side of running your business, while Heidi focuses on teaching you everything you want from the photography aspect. She is so creative and genuine — we had such a great time getting equal shooting time with sets that were prepared and thought out in advance. Her team is just as willing to answer any questions you might have along the way — from photoshop to the details of shooting. I’m not sure there wasn’t a topic that wasn’t covered – and because of their willingness to share, you really felt you could ask anything you wanted to know about running your business, or shooting, and someone on the team would have an answer for you. This workshop was truly one of the best I’ve been to! It was absolutely evident that Heidi has a love for teaching and photography! This is a must-have workshop experience!” ~Sheri, October 2013 Workshop Attendee
