NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY 1:1 | MENTORING

 

Are you wanting to master the art of newborn photography? Your in luck! I love helping others grow and find their own style. I have learned from the best newborn photographers in the world. I want to help others learn how to pose and work with babies SAFELY. I will share with you all of my knowledge learned over the past 6 years of working with babies! Now is the time to take your newborn photography to the next level and learn how I achieve beautiful straight out of camera images. We will discuss the entire process! I will share how I plan the session with the parents of baby in the weeks leading up to their newborn session, including all the tips that I give them to ensure a successful session. We will go over the set up involved in a newborn session. Then I will work through my posing flow from start to finish, including how I use angles to create a full gallery and most importantly how to safely pose newborns. At the end of our time together, you will get to watch me edit and see how I cull through an entire photo shoot in less than an hour! Ask questions and get a hands on guided experience.

Each 1:1 session is specifically tailored to your needs-no session is the same! I will send you a questionnaire to help make your experience unique. Each session will take place in my studio in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. We will spend a good 8 hours prepping, posing, shooting, editing, and learning! I generally have 1-2 newborns in the studio for us to cuddle with. Lunch, snacks, and beverages are provided, so just come comfy and ready to learn!
