1:1 NEWBORN MENTORING

I think it’s so important to create a community in this great big world of newborn photography. I have learned so many wonderful tricks over the years that I feel compelled to pass it on. Newborns are my absolute favorite to photograph and I remember the struggle that accompanied each session. I’m here to help dissolve that stress, pass on my tricks and hopefully help you grow your business and confidence as you go forward!


A mentoring session with me will last 7 hours. During the first half my assistant will be there to help us out. We will break for lunch and some Q&A. The second half I offer hands on learning should you desire. I am YOUR assistant – we will refresh on anything you are uncertain about to ensure that you are getting the most out of your time with me! I generally have 2-3 newborns in the studio that day for us to cuddle with. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages are provided – NO STRESS, just come comfy and ready to learn! Once your session is complete, I offer ongoing love and support! So don't worry if you forget anything. I got ya! We are connected for life. All we need is a date!

MENTORING INVESTMENT
