Newborn Photography Group Mentoring: The Start To Finish Workshop

If you are ready to take your newborn photography to the next level, then you don’t want to miss this opportunity!

The “Newborn Photography Group Mentoring: Start to Finish Workshop”  is an online live course custom designed to improve your newborn photography.  This one-of-a-kind educational experience includes tips and secrets that will help you better prepare for a newborn session, setup your studio for success, learn soothing and posing techniques, prepare beanbag shots, and master transitioning from pose to pose. You will also learn safety, composition and angles along with newborn editing techniques.

No need to spend money flying to a newborn workshop. This group mentoring class will last approximately four hours, while you watch on your screen in the comfort of your office or home.

This downloadable class will help photographers achieve fantastic newborn images.  Working knowledge of exposure, camera settings and basic Photoshop is highly recommended. We designed the newborn workshop so that photographers of all levels will learn something new.

You will have a unique opportunity to watch clips from multiple newborn sessions, while learning all the techniques necessary to capture stunning newborn portraits.

Video demonstrations will include how to:

– Set up beanbag and prop shots

– Master infant soothing techniques

– Read infant “cues”

– Achieve safe, breathtaking poses

– Compose the best images in camera

– Transition from pose to pose and from beanbag to prop

Each video demonstration will include live narration explaining step-by-step what was taking place.


Here’s a short glimpse of what you will learn:


Will I learn to edit newborn images? 

Yes, you will learn to use MCP Newborn Necessities to fix common issues such as:

– Slightly under-exposed images

– Jaundice or red, ruddy baby skin-tones

– Baby acne and rough flaky newborn skin

You will also learn basic post-processing of baby images and how to get certain sought-after newborn conversions, in color and black and white.

After the online workshop:
Your workshop fee covers the online class plus your exclusive access to a private newborn meeting place.  After attending, you will have the opportunity to interact with the class instructor and your peers. Additionally, you will have access to select video clips, ongoing newborn photography tips, and a forum to ask your questions.

    Hi Jodi,
    I know this is a workshop that was held awhile ago – are you doing this again, or can you still do this workshop?
    I love your actions. I have the Newborn Actions and the Fusion Actions. Looking to learn more about newborn photography without having to travel to learn techniques.

    Love this! I really want to participate, but sadly it’s a bit out of my price range. Have you given any thought to maybe offering previously recorded classes without the perks of participation or the FB forum a reduced price?

    Is this newborn class whenever we sign up or is it a certain day??

    I am new to digital photography, just purchased a Canon EOS Rebel T3 a few months ago. We’re expecting our first grandbaby soon and I really want to be able to take wonderful pictures of her for our son and Daughter in law. Is this class you just posted out of my league? and if so, do you offer something for someone like me who is just learning the basics? Any help you can offer would be so appreciated!

      HI Jenny,

      This class is great for those wanting to learning newborn photography. Some basic knowledge of exposure, camera settings and photoshop is recommended as we won’t be reviewing how these in the class. If you are interested in learning how to compose, set up and obtain breath taking images then this is the right class. If you are still learning camera settings a great place to start is Understanding Exposure by Peterson…best book! If you have any questions please feel free to email me at
