Yesterday night, the Chicago Tuesdays Together group met to support the non-profit company Letters in Motion. L.I.M’s goal is to bring awareness to the literacy gap and to encourage the children in Nepal and Kenya to advance academically. We also wrote our letters to these orphans and small children to bring them hope, encouragement, and love. […]

Once upon a time a girl met a friend at a Rising Tide Society leaders retreat in Charleston, SC… no, but seriously 😉 Shaunae and I met last January at a leaders retreat and became instant friends. After keeping up with one another, admiring one another on social media, and Shaunae visiting me in Chicago for a Honeybook […]

I feel blessed to have been able to join and meet you all. Very beautiful people in heart. If you haven’t joined, DO!

As you may have noticed, my blog and social media accounts have been a little quieter than normal lately, and that’s because I was preparing for the very first ENP Workshop, which I entitled The Love In The City Workshop! I still can’t believe that this happened… One of my biggest dreams has come true […]

I’d love to see a post on how you got to this point… I am certainly someone that feels like I’d like to do something like this some day but I don’t feel…. Good enough? Educated enough? I can hold my own for my work… That’s fine. But I struggle with feeling like if I speak out to “teach” something… I am faking it. Which I’m not… I could show what I know… But anyway.. I feel like I have a ways to go to get to that point but that’s a dream of mine too… I’d love to see a post on how you got to this point 😉
I’ll cruise around and see if maybe you’ve already done so!
The shoot looks awesome 🙂 great job in accomplishing your goals!

Day 1 of the workshop is finally here and my heart is beating with so much happiness and I have to admit, I’m also SUPER nervous! Eek! As you’re reading this, the attendees and I are probably in the middle of the styled portion of the workshop.  No doubt, having a blast! This is always one of […]

Instead of the normal topic meet up, we decided to celebrate with a Christmas party where we could get to know one another better, drink wine (duh), and have fun!! We met at Elizabeth Bankmann’s STUNNING home in Logan Square and […]

NIKON RULES. Okay, now that we have that settled we can continue. haha Just kidding 😉 Nikon or Canon? 70-200 or 85mm? Nikon brand or off brand flash? SO many choice and decisions to make!  I’ll tell you one thing, though.  Every photographer is different.  When it comes to lenses, camera bodies, flashes, memory cards, […]

This month, I was absolutely thrilled to be hosting another Tuesday’s Together in the Chicago area!  July’s meeting was held at Tuan Bui‘s amazing studio in Ravenswood.  It was the perfect place for everyone to meet- super cozy and great for discussion even with such a large group. The topic of the month is Client […]

Yesterday night was the FIRST EVER Tuesdays Together meeting in Chicago! I was absolutely thrilled to host this event in my condo.  For weeks, my brain raced with fun ideas, interesting conversation topics, and cute gifts that I could send home with the attendees.  Since Tuesdays Together is so new, I really wasn’t sure what […]

As a small business owner, I wear many hats.  I am the photographer, retoucher, secretary, accountant (only sometimes thanks to my hubby), and basically a #girlboss.  As my business has grown, I’ve searched for an online system that would allow me to be all of these things without stressing and breaking the bank.  I wanted […]

Gina Gaudette Kidd

Is this just for photographers?


Hi Gina! No, this is not just for photographers! There are tons of other small business owners that use 17hats! 🙂

So you’ve heard of the first touch but what’s the point? What is it exactly? The first touch is a special moment that you can experience with your soon to be husband or wife before the ceremony begins.  During this time you can get some sweet and often emotional photos of the two of you […]

Over the years, I’ve noticed that each bridal party I meet is different in their style and personality.  Therefore, no photo is the same!  There are several ways that I have photographed a bridal party. I found that categorizing them and showing a few examples would be the best way to show my brides as […]
