Designed for the professional who wishes to gain the knowledge and confidence needed to run a successful newborn photography business.



The Beautiful Dreamer workshop covers every need to know topic to enhance your newborn portraiture and grow your business. The workshop is held at the JSP studio in Venice, FL. We start with setup, go on to two models and then break for lunch and morning review. We then go on to post processing and business essentials. See below for a detailed schedule breakdown.

Must know your DSLR (ISO, shutter speed, aperture)

A 50mm or 35mm prime lens is recommended for the session as this is what I use with newborns

Post processing will be done in Photoshop CS6. To get the most from your time, knowledge of Photoshop is suggested.

  Studio lighting will be used. We will not discuss natural light specifically, though general lighting principals apply to both.
