        NEWBORN UNSCRIPTED | THE WORKSHOP

        My workshops are a reflection of how I do my newborn sessions. I don't have the same poses, wrapping, routine that many other newborn photographers have. I believe that every baby is different and therefore so will each session be. Some babies don't like certain poses and others will melt into each one easily. So I use my nine years experience in working with newborns to teach others who dream to be one or think that they need the extra push to move forward.

        I am an open book, I show you how to pose, wrap and settle with the baby leading me most of the way. You can ask me anything throughout the day.

        I have moved my business from Scotland to Sydney and then 4 years ago to the Sunshine Coast. So I have plenty of experience on marketing, advertising and getting your work out there. I am also happy to critique any work you feel needs help with.

        WHY I TEACH

        I think it is really important to share knowledge and be able to teach to help improve other photographers.  I would like to hope it lifts the standard for lots of you so that you feel your work is moving forward.  It is hard for us as artists to know if our work is good enough.  It will be a constant battle of trying and testing and the most growth I have had is when I have learnt from other photographers.

        WHO | WHERE | WHAT

        Class is for the photographer wanting to improve their knowledge in newborn photography.  Knowledge on how to use your camera and your way around Lightroom & Photoshop is required.

        Held on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.

        Bring along your DSLR and a portrait, wide angle and macro lens if you have them.
