Learn everything there is to know about newborn and maternity posing in this once-in-a-lifetime workshop with two of the world’s leading newborn and maternity photographers!
Stéphanie will guide you through her world of emotional maternity photography teaching you how she conducts a full indoor and outdoor (if weather permits) maternity session from start to finish. Stéphanie will run through in detail how she conducts her maternity sessions including showing you how to select the appropriate gown, posing techniques, lighting techniques, and camera settings which will help you get the best SOOC pictures. The posing and editing techniques taught by both Erin and Stéphanie will allow you to feel confident during your own sessions and create stunning and timeless images for your clients.
The newborn portion of the workshop will focus on how to safely pose, soothe, calm, and keep newborn subjects happy and sleepy. In addition to discussing how to set up a newborn session using natural & studio light, we will dive into lenses, equipment, exposure, and white balance so that you know how to get the perfect SOOC image. Erin is a very hands-on teacher when it comes to her newborn workshops, and will be there right beside you (and sometimes literally move your head into the right spot!) to insure you are capturing the correct angles right from the start.
Workshop attendees receive will be provided with a fabulous workbook (containing information discussed as well as additional information about setup, workflow, and business matters) – and for the first time ever – each attendee will receive all editing via a complimentary VIDEO DOWNLOAD, which will be yours to keep. Each attendee will receive a copy of Erin’s NEW beach maternity editing video AND newborn editing video, as well as a video of Stéphanie’s studio and outdoor editing workflow. Rather than spending an entire second workshop day demonstrating editing that attendees will struggle to re-create, Erin and Stéphanie’s videos will provide you will close to 8 hours of Photoshop demonstrations Providing videos for editing insures that you can watch over and over from the comfort of your own home. These videos are included in the tuition cost at no additional cost.
