Meet Heidi

Photographer and educator Heidi Guerard of Heidi Hope Photography® is a former high school photography and art teacher who achieved international recognition with the whimsical and ethereal backdrops she created out of her Rhode Island portrait studio.

Together with her husband Shaun, Heidi grew the Heidi Hope Photography® Studio to be one of the top performing retail studios in the country since its beginning in 2009. As the demand for Heidi’s mentorship and the signature style of hand-painted backdrops grew, Heidi founded Photographer Rising®, a resource for photographers to set them on the path to business success and Heidi Hope Backdrops, a line of high-quality reproductions of her hand painted looks.

Today Heidi brings her creative spirit, business savvy and passion for teaching together to help photographers with both the creative and the business side of portrait photography. She believes in helping women who share in their love of photography to find their voice in both art and entrepreneurship. Heidi continues to photograph out of Rhode Island while hosting international workshops and doing public speaking to inspire and uplift creatives. She is driven by the belief that it is only through connecting with our creative spirit that we are able to realize our most profound work, beautiful art and purposeful life.

Meet Laura

Laura Novak Meyer began her photography career at age 23 and met with swift success. Her work was recognized by the Professional Photographers Association of America and the Wedding and Portrait Photography Association; and, in 2007, Kodak named Novak one of its “Two Photographers to Watch” in the nation.

Her fresh sensibility and talent for putting clients at ease led to a successful business and ample recognition in the media and within the photography industry. While growing her two Philadelphia-area studios into a national franchise, Laura was featured in Philadelphia Magazine, CBS Talk Philly, and Good Day Philly on FOX. Her entrepreneurial advice can be found in Working Mother, Entrepreneur, Inc., Design*Sponge, Forbes and Success Magazine.

Today Laura brings that same passion and drive to her role as a mentor, helping other women connect with themselves and their world through photography. She believes in creating businesses that help us find more joy in our lives, create joy in the lives of others, and to live out our purpose using our God-given gifts and talents towards a greater good. She shares her vision that by aligning our personal values with the work we do, we create a wonderful sense of joy and intention with our everyday work.
