Newborn Photography Mentoring 1:1 or 1:2
I invite you into my newborn studio where you will get to get up close and watch and learn how I execute a newborn session from the very start to finish. Everything from workflow, session styling, posing flow and editing flow is discussed. There will be plenty of time for all of your questions to be answered about any of the process that I am teaching. I invite you to take notes, and ask questions during the posing and shooting portion of the mentoring session. I will show you exactly how I safely achieve all of the poses, how to obtain variety in each pose during shooting with different angles and compositions, and soothing tricks and tips. We will go over technical aspects including light. I do use studio light with newborns, but if you are a natural light photographer I am still able to teach lighting to you.

Each mentoring session is customized to tailor your wants and needs for what you hope to learn and get out of the mentoring.

The schedule of our day together will look like this, but could be altered!
