Just Born Workshops teach any level of photographer how to properly light and edit newborn sessions with a strong emphasis on posing and retouching. You will learn natural and studio light to complement your current and future needs. Choose from 1 or 2 day workshops to set you on a fast path toward becoming a master of your craft.
Topics covered will include:
Sessions: We will cover session preparation, flow, posing, baby safety and trouble shooting during stressful sessions. Also demonstrated will be numerous wrapping styles, transitions and setting up the beanbag/props.
Photoshop workflow and editing: I will demonstrate exactly how I edit, what actions I use and the thought process behind editing each type of image (macro, beanbag, parent/sibling). We will also discuss honing your personal style and how to edit to achieve your look.
Business: Integral to this workshop is teaching the business side of newborn photography. We will walk through branding, web & logo design, marketing, social media, client acquisition and retention and more.
Resources: All attendees will receive a printed workshop guide that covers all the information discussed during our time together. You will also go full set of posing and wrapping cards to keep with you during sessions and aid in practicing once home.
