Workshops are one full day and will cover everything you need to know about newborn photography, whether you are in your first year of business or looking to enhance your existing skills. I will teach you everything from session workflow, styling, setting up your studio, prepping clients before they arrive, newborn posing on the beanbag and in props, composition and finding the best angles to shoot at, lighting, soothing techniques for a fussy baby and much much more. I will show you how to use studio lighting and where to place it to achieve perfect skin tones and shadows in and out of the camera.
**Please note that you will not be allowed to touch the baby or get any hands on posing, but you will have the opportunity to photograph every pose so I can help you with angles and camera settings**
