After lots of requests, I am now offering newborn mentoring sessions. If you are looking to go behind the scenes at one of my newborn sessions, this is for you. My mentoring sessions are tailored to your specific needs. Before hand I will send you a questionnaire so I can identify your strengths and weaknesses. This will help me make our time together the most beneficial to you. You will learn:
- How I prepare parents for a session
- How I set up for a session
- Tips on styling sessions
- What equipment I use
- Newborn Safety
- Soothing techniques
- Lighting (studio)
- My tips and tricks for posing and shooting
- My newborn session workflow
- Wrapping techniques
