Newborn Photography Workshop featuring Jessica Mitchell Photography & June Star Photography


I can not begin to tell you how deeply excited and honored I am that I am teaming up with my bff Heather,  from June Star Photography, to bring you guys a once in a lifetime opportunity! Heather and I are joining forces to bring you True Colors ~ Newborn Photography Workshop, where she will show you how she creates all of her amazing Neutral toned images, while I show you how to spice things up a little and add some color to your work! We have been talking about doing this workshop for a long time now and it’s finally coming together and we could not be more excited about this. Since we shoot two completely different styles, you are getting the best of both worlds with this workshop. You can please your clients that want to keep it nice and simple with creams and browns, and you can add some spark to your images with bright bold colors. It’s brilliant!!! There hasn’t really been a workshop setup like this before and we are so excited to introduce this to the Newborn Community. Want to know more?? Scroll down and find out what all this amazing workshop includes!

Either way, you’re going to learn all of the amazing poses you see above and more. We are going to rock your world and give you the power to get back to your studio and give your clients the Portraits that they’ve dreamed of having. We can’t wait to share all of our knowledge with you. We are going to be open books the entire workshop, no question is off limits

Tentative Schedule:

Saturday, the 19th, will be packed full!  We will start in the morning with a meet and greet followed by setup, camera settings, lights, etc.  Jessica will then take over posing baby #1 and then we will break for lunch.  We will start back up with baby # 2 right after lunch and then break for discussion in the late afternoon.  Weather permitting, we’ll then head to the beach for a beautiful sunset maternity session.

We’ll start bright and early again Sunday morning with setup, and then I will take over posing our first baby of the day.  We’ll break for lunch after baby #1, then get right back to it with baby #2.  We will then go over our individual editing workflows and end the day with a trunk show full of goodies from some of our favorite vendors.
