Thank you so much for your interest in learning from me. Photographing newborns is my passion, I love new live and I’m so happy to offer newborn mentoring. I embrace a natural flow with my newborns, I do not just pose them. My mentoring sessions are intended to provide inspiration and stress free baby-guided posing. I adapt to every baby that comes to my studio and I would like to teach you to do the same.
This is an intimate workshop for photographers who want to master photographing newborns simply, beautifully and naturally. I would like you to explore a fresh and lighter approach to newborn photography. A lot of photographers find newborn photography very stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. I will teach you how to have a stress free newborn session and how to provide a beautiful gallery of images to your client. Majority of my newborn sessions last under two hours.
This workshop will not teach you a ‘frog’ pose, but will show you that you can connect with your subject and explore. That you don’t need to stress yourself when the baby is not super sleepy, you just need to open your heart and push your creative boundaries. I will share the flow of my sessions and how to gently move a baby from one pose to another with minimal distraction.
You will learn stress free, baby-guided posing and natural flow of a session. This is an opportunity to elevate your current skill and to take your own business to a higher level.
You will learn everything you need to have a successful newborn photography business.

Photographers’ questions answered:
I wanted to put FAQ for photographers for quite some time now, because I am always getting emails from people asking the same sorts of questions.
What equipment do you use?
What mode do you shoot?
All manual and always RAW. I like to have a full control and to manipulate the light myself.
Do you use natural light?
I use natural light as much as possible, but living in England, some of our winter days can be very dark so I might use a giant soft box with continuous lighting then. I have worked quite a bit to try and make my studio lit images look as similar as possible to my natural light images so that my clients would receive the same quality.
What software do you use and do you use actions?
I organize my images through Bridge and then open them in Adobe Camera RAW to make initial changes; however the final editing I do in Photoshop SC5.
For me one of the most important factors is to get it right with the camera in the first place , so I would have to spend as little time as possible editing images. I use channel mixer for black and white images and I have a colour action for my colour images.
How long you have been shooting?
I started taking photography seriously more than 10 years ago. After studying at Westminster University I was awarded a BA honours in Photographic Arts. This extended my knowledge in fine art photography and gave me the ability to see photography as an art form that will always push creative boundaries.
I have been specialising in newborn photography for a little more then seven years now.
Where do you get your props from?
My style is clean, simple and organic. I prefer not to overuse accessories. The majority of my props are from All Newborn Props.
What inspires you?
My daughter and my son inspire me. I find myself wanting to capture every moment of their precious lives. I don’t ever want to forget a single detail. 🙂
Where is your studio?
I live in Brentwood, Essex and my studio space is a spare bedroom in my home. It is nice, warm and cosy .
Do you offer any workshops or mentoring?
Yes, I do offer one to one mentoring sessions. If you are interested in mentoring with me, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
