About newborn workshop

In all courses, group or individual, are included:

  • 8-hour workload of practice, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • Coffee-break *we do not stop for lunch, that is why we have a small break in between practices for a snack.

  • In the morning, students will attend a full newborn session while the mentor teaches all of her techniques, providing the students with a real session experience. In the afternoon, students will have the opportunity to photograph a baby, training the angles and frames. The practice of angles is individual and oriented so that students make the most of it.

  • E-Book with a guide of poses and angles, camera setup, chromatic circle and post production.

  • Certificate.

Requirement: It's necessary for the student to have at least basic knowledge in photography and know how to use their own equipment.

Testimonials and reviews

My main priority is to create memories that are timeless. I choose to photograph in a classic and minimalist style so that images will remain current in 10, 20 or even 30 years’ time. I use neutral tones, rustic wood, wool, lace and luxury fabrics all to reflect the romanticism, sophistication and delicacy that I consider to be the strengths in my photography.

I invite you to enter my world – welcome!
