I was joined by three lovely and enthusiastic photographers in the morning! We spoke about what type of photography they are interested in, any previous experience with Newborn photography – and their hope for their photography future!
We then went on to chat about the basics and necessities of Newborn Photography, showing them all the basics and behind the scenes items needed to start off with Newborn Photography. After that – WRAPPING! A technique mastered after the basic skill is learnt and after lots of lots of practice! We used my stand in baby, as well as some dolls – just to get the feel basic idea of how to do a wrap. We then carried on with the use of my stand in baby, setting up props and working on lighting, taking photos of the very co-operate stand-in baby!
Later in the morning, the real newborn model arrived!! An adorable 8day old baby was such a superstar for us! We managed to go through wrapping, props, beanbag and parents poses! Everyone got a chance to take photos of the newborn in the different setups.
After the exciting 3 hour session with the Newborn model, we sat around and looked through everyone’s images for some Q&A while we had lunch!
We ended off the day with Certificates and a little goodie bag for each attendee 🙂
I am so proud of everyone’s enthusiasm during the session and their images that they did during the day!
It was such an honour to pass on my knowledge of Newborn photography to other Newborn Photographers!
I plan to do more Newborn workshops in the future, and am so excited for them!
