PUREST LOVE: A Newborn Photography Workshop

$695.00 $500.00

Of all the different genres of portrait photography, newborn photography is one of the most rewarding and the most difficult. The fragility of a newborn is matched by the demands of the session, from the safety of the baby to posing and timing.  

Again, we come back to the experience you must provide for the clients because the only thing more fragile than a newborn is anxious new parents who want everything to go perfectly.  We are going to lead you through everything you need to make this an amazing experience for them and produce heirloom quality art that they will treasure.

  • Newborn Safety from A-Z
  • Layering sets and how to build them
  • Soothing techniques that work
  • Framing and composition for flattering angles
  • Gear choices
  • Cull, edit, create

You’ll have the opportunity to work with baby models that we pose in the studio and outdoors, weather permitting.  We’ll provide guidance and feedback, and baby whisper our best secrets for amazing newborn photos.

Max of 8 participants

Newborns are just the most wonderful subjects to photograph – and perhaps the most challenging! It’s physically demanding work that requires attention to detail with a keen eye towards composition and, of course, safety.

Join us as we share everything on how to create a successful baby-led newborn session for both child and parents alike. We place a special emphasis on the product, covering every nuance and trick we’ve mastered and offer that to our attendees.

We’ll go into depth on topics involving baby’s safety, layering sets and how to build them, best soothing techniques, framing and composition for flattering angles, and how gear choices affect the final results. Every person at the workshop will have an opportunity to photograph baby models that we pose and gain immediate feedback for each frame. Posing will happen in the studio and, weather permitting, we’ll head outdoors for some beautiful textures to use as well. Our day will wrap up with us sharing how we cull, edit, and create a beautiful portraits and products for our clients.

Newborn photography is demanding and truly rewarding. We don’t hold anything back because we want you to be completely prepared to create something truly wonderful for your clients. Whether you’re new to the industry or looking to improve your existing product, join us at this fantastic learning opportunity.
