HGP Studio

I'm going to start off really randomly here: I have two children, so I have to say that they're my pride and joy.  They bring me happiness, more than I ever imagined.  So legitimately, they are the reason I live and love.  But my newborn studio?  It's my happy place.  The place was bare bones (concrete floors, missing walls, pipes exposed) when I fell in love with it, but I knew the first time I saw it it should be mine.  It's been almost three years, so better late than never with the blog post, right?

If you're here, you know that I specialize in wedding photography.  I don't really need a studio for that, other than the consultations and planning meetings.  So when I opened the studio, it was specifically for newborns and has evolved so much since then.

Now when you walk in, I have SEVEN backdrops ready to utilize at any given point of time.  Three of them are real wood backdrops that lend to the earthy component of my style.  For the newborn sessions, there are twenty-five different colors and textures of backdrops for the beanbag images.  While perusing the site you'll see that I do in fact love color.  Regardless of going with color or neutrals, I ALWAYS stay simple with my setups.  I have thirty boxes, buckets, and bowls for your littles, over one hundred wraps, headbands, tiebacks, bonnets, and newborn and sitter outfits to feature your baby.

To say I'm equipped for your newborn session and beyond is an understatement.  Just know that even with all the extensive props available, I'll always keep a simple, clean, timeless look to your images.  It's my style, always has been, always will be.  We have so many props there's so way your gallery wall/album will be identical to anyone else's.  I want the session to reflect your taste, your loves, and your style.  With that said, PLEASE take me up on my complimentary planning and design meeting for your newborn session by contacting me HERE.  They are so much fun, and add an extra layer of excitement as you wait for the arrival of your little one and help the day go so smoothly.  It's by no means required, but a service offered to all expecting mama's.

Lastly, the latest addition isn't just newborn centered, although I've used it for newborns with their families and for milestone and maternity before.  The back room is now a boudoir studio (a.k.a the movie room for the girls during sessions, and my nap place when I have 20 minutes to myself).  It's a GORGEOUS extra space with white washed wood headboard, flowing drapes, and a killer chandelier.  It is SO convenient to have a boudoir studio with tons of space for the hair and makeup ladies to come to the studio and doll you up.  So yes, it is a boudoir studio, but you wouldn't be the first, nor the last parent that has snoozed a few minutes away in the cool room during your session.
