Learn everything you need to know about the art of photographing newborns at one of our Newborn Workshops!

Anne (owner/photographer for Fairies & Frogs) has been photographing newborns for 22 years and she loves to share her wealth of information and experience with fellow photographers!

Photographing newborn babies requires very specific knowledge about newborn babies, including skills and techniques that will only be used for newborn photography sessions. Anne has worked with over 5,000 newborn babies and will guide you and teach you all that she knows, she will be an open book for you!

If you are looking to gain confidence in working with newborns and master the skills to provide your clients with a spectacular newborn photography session then a Fairies and Frogs workshop will be perfect for you!

Anne has a very full newborn session schedule and because of this her Newborn Photography Workshops are only held 2 to 3 days days per month and fill up fast.

Hands-On Workshop

(camera allowed)
Build up your Baby Whispering Confidence with a hands-on workshop! You will be right beside me learning how to safely and properly pose baby in a variety of props and poses including: bucket, chair, potato sack pose and bean bag. You will also learn how to create the most comfortable environment for a newborn session, how to perfect your session workflow from beginning to end, learn tried and true baby soothing techniques and how to be the best baby swaddler in town!
Studio lighting will also be discussed.
After we are done with the session we will head on over to the computer for culling and editing. You are welcome to bring your camera to this workshop and take pictures of the poses we create!
