Seattle newborn photography mentor Dawn Potter, offers hands on mentoring to other newborn photographers. In your mentoring session, you will learn how to safely pose newborns. You will learn wrapping and soothing techniques to help keep your babies calm throughout your session. You will learn my go-with-the-flow posing style for both beanbag and props.
You will learn lighting, camera settings and shooting angles. We will discuss equipment and gear and the things you need (and the things you don’t need) when having a newborn photography business. The best part is that your 1 to 1 mentoring day will be hands on. Not only will you get to photograph the babies and the set ups, you will also have the opportunity to work through posing yourself with my guidance.
These darling littles were our models for a recent 1 on 1 mentoring session in my Issaquah studio. One baby was photographed using studio light, the other two were photographed using natural light. As you can see, we even worked through the ever so challenging awake baby. (Awake babies won’t seem as scary to you after your mentoring session!)
