Let me guide you through newborn photography in a fun, safe and relaxed way. When you photograph newborns, it is very important to master peace of mind, safe posing / wrapping, lighting. No rush, no stress that's my motto.


Each 1:1 session will take place in my  studio in Columbia, MD!

I do have an assistant that I have on hand for our first day together!
On day 1, we spend a good 8 hours posing, shooting, and learning!

I will go over newborn posing and my workflow.
I will describe how I transition baby from one pose to another and correct your angles which will make the difference. I will also explain lighting in details.

Day 2, I offer hands on learning – I am YOUR assistant today – we will refresh on anything you are uncertain about from the previous day to ensure that you are getting the most out of your time with me.

1:1 mentoring is hands on, and students will have the opportunity to pose baby with my guidance and assistance to give them a head start to implementing the skills they’ve learned.
