This blog has been a ghost town for too long! Pretty sure I actually saw a tumbleweed roll by while I was dusting off the cobwebs. Honestly, if you're not a blogger, these posts can be a little hard.
So why am I back at this? I want to announce something that I've been wanting to do for a while and preparing in the late hours when I should have been sleeping. (Hmm.. it's 1:00am and I swore I would be asleep by 10:00) I've been asked many times, finally a bunch of people requested it at once. That's probably a sign, huh?
I'm offering my first (and maybe only, we'll see how this goes) Newborn Workshop! Honestly, I've been adding to a list of ideas for over a year and I'm more than ready to teach newborn safety to others. How to make the expectation, the reality instead of the next Pinterest Fail article.
Some people starting out don't know that safety is an issue or they see an image online and think "that looks easy, I can to that" but there is a science to it. This science starts with precautions that seem absurd until you see them in action. There are also secrets to shooting and editing that look like baby is doing something dangerous, while keeping them perfectly safe.
When you start out, it can be really hard to guide babies into those squishy positions without making them looked like you just flopped them there. Seeing it in person, for me was a life changer. I wasn't as nervous and the babies seemed to feel my new sense of calm; I know they felt my nerves!
We'll cover all kinds of info, I have it listed here in my sign up sheet or here in my event announcement on Facebook. We'll probably discuss more than the info listed because a bunch of photographers in a room could easily talk for days!
Your spot will be reserved when you pay your reservation fee in the sign up sheet. If money is an issue, we have five weeks until the workshop. Reach out to me and I can set it up for five equal payments instead of one or two bigger ones. We all start somewhere and I know this will help you make some big, positive changes to the future of your business and reduce some headaches.
One of the requirements is that you know basic manual shooting. If you don't know manual shooting, please let me know and I will schedule something before this class. If you sign up, there is a place to indicate that you need training in manual shooting.
I hope to meet you soon! Please share this with your photographer friends that are learning or looking to get into newborns.
