1-1 Newborn Photography Training & Mentoring Workshops

SO YOU WANT TO BE A NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER?

There are loads of studio newborn photographers teaching how to pose newborns in buckets but there aren’t a huge amount teaching natural newborn photography in client homes. I aim to show you how to run your entire newborn photography business without ever needing a studio. This workshop focuses on newborn photography but in a natural, lifestyle way rather than extremely posed.

I’m so excited you are interested in mentoring with “Little Crumpets Photography”! I’ve been working as a Professional Newborn Photographer in London for 10 years and use my previous experience as a Secondary Teacher to aid my teaching workshops.

I love sharing my knowledge and passion for newborn photography!

Learn Natural Newborn Photography!

So you want to cuddle cute babies all day, take pictures of them and have a lifestyle you can control and be your own boss? Yes, it is a great lifestyle but it takes many years to get to that point. Did you know by having me as your mentor, I can help get you there quicker?

Newborn photography is so much more than knowing how to use your camera. It is about soothing techniques that make baby feel calm, safe and comfortable. It is about handling a newborn baby with confidence and knowledge on safe posing. You could spend years learning how to do this or I could show you how. I did it the backwards way, I started out by myself and then years later I started taking newborn training workshops. If only I had done it earlier I would have saved myself so many years of learning and growing my business!

Newborn photography is not just about picking up a camera and snapping away pictures of newborns. Ask me about my newborn photography training workshops, I can do 1-1 or 2-1 workshops so we have an intimate learning environment and I’m all yours to answer any questions! I’m passionate about teaching safety in newborn photography and sharing my vast knowledge on newborn photography posing that I’ve learned over the past 10 years. I can show you how to have a quicker session, how to pose baby in a natural way, how to soothe baby, gain confidence with family posing and develop your own style, I can show you how to edit newborn skin and how to market yourself. I am an open book and as your newborn mentor, I will be available after our newborn training workshop to keep helping you!

I strongly recommend taking a newborn photography workshop before you even pick up your camera with a baby, this way you can ensure that you are working safely and not putting precious little newborns at risk!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a wonderful day of meeting and learning from you at your newborn workshop. I got more from it than I thought possible, my first newborn shoot after was a dream. Your knowledge on lighting, your workflow and all the tiny details you taught made such a difference. I’d definitely recommend this course to anyone either starting out or just wanting to upskill their work and their knowledge. Thank you for having me in your beautiful studio!

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY 1-2-1 WORKSHOP AND TRAINING FAQs

1.) Why do you need newborn photography training even as a lifestyle newborn photographer?

Working with precious newborns is no joke. I’ve heard many photographers say they don’t need any newborn photography training because they just shoot lifestyle newborn photography and never hold the baby themselves and allow parents to do the posing. However, one must remember that parents don’t have any posing experience and don’t know how to safely do these poses either. Even in the most natural documentary style, it can only benefit you as a newborn photographer to have a bit of training in safety and soothing newborns.

Knowing how to shoot with the technical aspects of newborn photography in mind like natural lighting, angles and soothing a newborn will only help your newborn photography grow and progress.

It is a bit like being an abstract artist. Most of the great abstract artists all had vast art training and were able to paint realistically but once they learned all the rules, they were then able to loosen up and defy them. Learn the technical and safety basics of newborn photography and then use them to enhance your natural newborn photography work.

2.) What experience and training do I have?

With 10 years of experience in newborn photography, I’ve photographed more than 1500 newborns and attended many workshops from many of the great posed newborn photographers from across the world like Kelly Brown, Amy McDaniels and Jade Gao. I initially started as a posed, studio newborn photographer which I did for many years and trained with some of the best. I then changed my style to be more natural and work in client homes but use my technical newborn posing background to influence and perfect my natural newborn photography work now.  By taking the time to learn the posed newborn photography style, I am able to truly help enhance your natural newborn work.

3.) Why my workshops aren’t a styled shoot or “shoot along”. 

While you get the opportunity to photograph every pose in my newborn photography workshops, this is not simply a “shoot along” or styled shoot. My newborn photography workshops are an intensive learning experience where I seek to impart as much of my knowledge about newborn photography onto you. Prior to our newborn models arriving, we will have a discussion about all the aspects of natural newborn photography and safety, then while we are shooting our newborn models and their family, I will explain everything I’m doing while posing and photographing. I will discuss posing, safety, natural lighting, working in client homes and marketing in depth.

4.) Why did I start mentoring newborn photographers?

Mentoring other newborn photographers was the most natural progression for me, I live and breathe newborn photography and am so passionate in helping other newborn photographers become successful enough to have a lifelong career in the niche.

5.) I only do home newborn photography sessions, is this workshop right for me?

Yes! About 80% of my newborn photography work is done in client homes because I absolutely adore it and love showing newborn photographers that they don’t need a studio. I discuss in detail how I shoot in client homes and my workflow for it.

6.) Can I teach you how to speed up my workflow in newborn lifestyle photography sessions?

Over the years, I have developed a natural newborn posing workflow influenced by my early posed newborn photography days. This workflow helps soothe baby, keep them calm and help with transitions to get a large variety of images for your client galleries.

As I offer 1-2-1 newborn photography workshops, I offer a range of dates each month.

8.) Why in person newborn photography workshops versus online?

I’ve taken a range of workshops from various newborn photographers across the world in person and online. The ones that are most vivid in my mind are the in person workshops because they were an experience. I loved that I was able to interact with my favourite newborn photographers and ask questions. With my in person natural newborn workshops, I also tailor the workshop entirely to your needs which can’t be done in a generic online course.

9.) Do I need any prior experience in newborn photography to attend your workshops?

My newborn photography workshops are tailored to your needs so I can cater to beginners or experienced newborn photographers. I just ask you know how to use your camera!

10.) Do I need to bring any equipment to your newborn photography workshop?

Just your camera!

11.) Do I offer any post workshop support or resources?

Yes! I’ve compiled a 20 page Newborn Workshop booklet that includes everything we’ve discussed during our workshop so it stays fresh in your mind and you can look back on it. I also have created a little editing video that I will send you where you can watch me edit newborn skin in Lightroom and Photoshop.
