MAY 2015 

Take your families out of the studio for a little down time at the beach. Bruce Hudson captured this wonderful, multi-generational family photo. Taking families to locales that are special to them automatically creates a relaxed environment, where expressions are more natural and nerves are less frayed. We dare you to think outside the box for your next location shoot. Do you have ideas on some unique locations for family photography? Please forward them to us. We would love to share them!  Speaking of family, our NEW Family Portrait Program is now in place. Take a look on our website for all of the details. If you are already shooting portraits and have been curious about doing shorter, time-efficient session events to diversify your business, the Family Portrait Session program includes the marketing, sales, online scheduling, and communication materials. It’s a great starting place for you to customize for your family session event in your business.

From time to time, we like to refresh our various product lines. We will be making some updates to our Sports templates. H&H has offered ESPN licensed products as part of H&H’s sports program since 2011. We were recently notified by ESPN that in 2015,  they will discontinue their personalized photographic product licensing program for all photography labs. To give you the time you need to keep your existing agreements and produce ESPN products through spring season, H&H has worked out an arrangement with ESPN that will allow us to continue to produce ESPN branded products through June 26th, 2015. After that date, H&H will no longer be able to legally  produce ESPN branded sports templates.

Our NEW Competitor Pro templates make an excellent choice if you have previously been using the ESPN products.


We pride ourselves in providing our customers not only with excellent products, but with great educational resources as well. Our blog features articles about equipment, lighting, advice from other professionals and all kinds of great photography tips. This is just one of the many ways that we provide our customers with the tools they need to succeed as professional photographers.
