On a sunny Wednesday at the beginning of September, I had the pleasure of hosting a full day Newborn Photography & Business workshop in South Yarra, Melbourne for a wonderful bunch of photographers.
Over the course of the day we covered an insane amount of content, split up into three sections: shooting (including a live newborn demo as pictured above), experience (client prep & experience) as well as business (marketing, branding, building, money & more).
By 6pm, my brain was completely exhausted in the best possible way. This creative job is a beautiful but big thing. So much of what we do is not about the shooting but rather every other thing we do behind the scenes and I have always believed firmly in teaching how to streamline it all. How to do the best of everything, for you.
Special thank you to my beautiful assistant, Lydia Kammer who travelled with me on the day and not only ensured everybody was well fed & caffeinated but also took many of the photographs above. She also wins extra points for ducking out in the middle of the day and fetching me a kombucha. Anybody who knows me personally knows that’s gold to me.
Finally, thank you also to Kerry Rose for the last image of me working. It’s always special seeing yourself in your element.

A newborn & family photography workshop for photographers of all levels // Melbourne, 2018.
After two successful Illuminate retreats & requests for group newborn workshops, I am now excited to announce I will be hosting my first workshop in the beautiful city of Melbourne in early September 2018. This workshop has been created to develop the skills of photographers who work in the newborn field. Whether that be your shooting technique, your workflow or building on your business.
What will we cover?
Over the course of a full day photographers will be treated to a jam packed schedule where all aspects of newborn photography & business will be looked at. Beginning with a live photography demo, we will focus on light, technique and natural posing. This will be closely followed by workshopping workflow, editing techniques and structures. After a lunch break, attendees will workshop their marketing strategies and delve into productivity and time management.
This workshop is perfect for photographers at any level in their newborn photography career journey. It will however be strictly limited to only 10 attendees to ensure all are able to ask questions openly and share information without feeling overwhelmed or overcrowded.
Due to my schedule, unfortunately there is only an opportunity for one workshop in Melbourne for this year. Therefore, to apply for this workshop, please fill out the form below as soon as possible. You will be contacted shortly with further information regarding schedule & securing your booking with a deposit & contract.
"If you ever doubt the true miracle that is life, just spend a few moments admiring the beauty that is a newborn baby."
Toby & his family came into the studio on a last minute booking and I am so glad they did. He was the sweetest, sleepiest and most content little babe and we had such a beautiful afternoon admiring his sweetness. Also his pout was pretty incredible.
