Are you ready to feel more confident taking photos of brand new babies?!

Investing in education like my one-on-one mentoring session can truly be a game changer for you. You will begin to approach your newborn sessions with ease, confidence, and know-how.

After photographing now for 10 years, I have a breadth of knowledge to share with you and give you that same experience that catapulted my career. 

Let's get you up and running with newborn photography! 

A while ago, I decided I did want to teach, but the big group setting was not for me. I offer one-on-one newborn mentoring sessions. You get all of my attention, and I get all of yours. It's a much more intimate experience than a group workshop. You don't have to vie for space in a crowded room and try to make your voice heard over those who are more outspoken…and neither do I! This will be you and me. Your questions will guide and steer our conversations. I will demonstrate what you are wanting to see and what you are struggling with.

Alllll day. 

All day, you and me hanging out at my studio in Salem, Oregon, talking everything newborn photography.

There are a few boxes you need to be able to check for this session to be a good fit and investment for you:

• comfortable photographing in manual mode with a DSLR camera
• have one prime lens (I recommend a 50mm or 35mm)
• bonus points if you have a macro lens, but this is not necessary
• Lightroom experience
• Photoshop experience

Good to go?

I like to schedule these on a Thursday or Friday - you let me know which day is best for you.

Here is what the day will look like: 
9:00am Arrive
9:00 - 10:00 Introductions, Set-Up
10:00 - 12:00 Model #1
12:00 - 1:00 Lunch - (included)

That's a long day, I know. But it goes by super fast. So much to talk about! Here is what we'll be going over:

• Prepping Parents
• Soothing techniques
• Posing - my focus is on authentic and timeless poses. No froggy or upright potato sack here!
• Wrapping
• Lighting! This is the most important and a topic we will come back to over and over
• Camera Angles - achieve great variety in your gallery with fewer poses and more camera angles
• Macro images - moms and dads love those baby feet and lips, make sure you know how to deliver those images
• Workflow
• Post-Processing in Lightroom and Photoshop 
• Marketing your newborn photography business

I know that during our session, things are moving quickly, and you're trying to remember everything. Don't worry! I will be giving you a printed booklet that has tons of notes and links to all of the things we're going over, and it's a nice place for you to jot down additional thoughts.

This all sounds great, Katie, but how much does it cost?

The price for a full day of mentoring with me is $1,550. 

A $500 deposit is made to book the mentoring session, and then you can pay the remaining balance in full a week before our session or sign up for a $350 3 part payment plan.

Ready to get your one on one newborn mentoring session on the calendar? Give me a few Thurs or Friday dates that would work for you, and we'll get this booked! 

I really look forward to meeting you and helping you get to the next level with your newborn photography.
