    Absolutely amazing!!
    I registered for this class in July and because of a family issue, she moved me to the August class with no questions. She is such an amazing person, photographer and mentor. I learned so much in this class that I cant wait until my first shoot Sunday to see what I can do. No question, one of the best workshops I have taken!!

    Not only that, she gave us hours of footage so that we could go back and remind ourselves what she did. And the Facebook mentoring group.priceless!! Not much can be better than bouncing ideas off of your peers for constructive criticism. Thanks Tracy for running one amazing session.

    I just wanted to say how amazing this online class was. It went over and beyond my expectations. Tracy was so professional and the class was so informative. She was live the entire time and we were able to interrupt her at anytime and ask questions. She was open to anything and answered everything for us. It was awesome to see videos of her in action and her being able to pause go back pause and go back as many times as we needed so that we could see what she was doing. In an in person newborn workshop that would not happen. I would highly recommend this class to anyone that was interested in doing newborn photography. I am so excited to photograph the next newborns on my schedule which should be the end of August. Everything will still be fresh in my head. Again thank you Tracy for your amazing knowledge and willingness to help us expand our learning. You are such a sweet person.

    Amazing class!
    LOVED this class! Traci was so informative and very thorough. I learned so much! I have been working with newborns already, but still working on really mastering some of the poses. This class was very in depth to show babies being posed and great pullbacks to teach lighting and angles. I highly recommend this class! Great job Traci! Thanks so very much! xo

    Tracy Callahan is the BEST!
    I am a Neonatal/Pediatric ICU nurse and feel very comfortable working with babies. I have also been doing nature/travel photography for the past 6 years and am looking at transitioning to newborn photography.

    When learning something, I also ask a LOT of questions. I was concerned that I would be left with more questions than answers in an online course. Before I signed up for the class, I emailed Tracy several times with questions. Tracy always replied very promptly and was very detailed in her responses. I was impressed by this and decided to take the online course. I had one final reservation that the majority of the class was not recorded. I was concerned I would miss out on some of the information.

    After taking the class I was VERY impressed by Tracy! She went at a very comfortable pace and addressed all questions as they arose. She was very detailed and thorough in her presentation! I love that she answers all questions openly, sharing all her knowledge and expertise! I was amazed how fast the time flew by in the course.

    Lastly, Tracy has gone above and beyond, by creating a private FB group where you can continue to ask questions and learn from other people who have also taken this class. I would HIGHLY recommend taking this class!!

    Best Online Workshop Review by
    I took the MCP Newborn Photography Group Mentoring: Start to Finish workshop yesterday and it is absolutely the best online class I have ever participated in. Tracy has a way of teaching that is easy to understand and she is so friendly too. The class was very interactive and we could ask questions at any time and she would answer them immediately; plus, if we needed her to rewind a video because we missed something, it was not a problem. Not only did I learn a ton of new things, it really helped to solidy some of those issues I wasnt quite sure about. It was great to see all of the different poses and how to go from one pose to the next. After the class was over, we received a link to join the Facebook group where we can continue to ask questions and interact with others. We also received links to all the videos and slideshow so that we can review them as many times as we want. Best use of my money I have made in a long time. I highly recommend this class to anyone starting out in newborn photography or anyone who wants to polish their skills. On a rating of one to ten, I give this class a TEN!!

    Courtney:

    Absolutely worth every dime!!!!!
    I was a little skeptical about it helping out, but I was wrong! The class itself was fun and very informative. Before the workshop I had done two newborn sessions ,and I was not pleased with them at all. I had no control and no clue how to sooth the babies, not to mention I had no idea how to pose them. After the workshop my results improved immediately. I took Tracys advice about wrapping the baby and that helped. I was able to sooth the baby and move from pose to pose with no problem. AND I practiced different angles on each pose which made a huge difference. If you are thinking about taking this workshop, think no more and just buy it. You will be so glad you did!

    Wonderful for those who cannot travel!
    I was so excited to have the opportunity to attend a newborn workshop that did not require me to travel. I currently live in Budapest, Hungary and have very little opportunities for continuing education in English.

    The price was really reasonable and the information was invaluable. Tracy is so open and friendly so I was not afraid to ask the questions I wanted. The mentoring afterward is so nice because you can get constructive criticism. We are all still learning and just sharing what we know!

    Julia:

    Awesome!
    This course was so informative and engaging. It made me want to find a newborn for the next day to start practicing everything that Tracy taught! I am so thankful that Tracy is willing to share her knowledge with people like me who are just starting out.

    Chelsea:

    Amazing!
    Tracy does such a GREAT job, but the learning doesnt stop when the workshop is over, you continue to get help from Tracy and other peers that have taken the workshop as well. Definitely worth it!

    Sarah:

    So many wonderful tips!
    This workshop far exceeded my expectations. I had read many positive reviews and was excited to take part, but had no idea how many detailed tricks and tips Tracy would share. Her generosity is incredible, and I left the workshop feeling I had not only learned so much, but also had gained a priceless resource and friend in the business.

    Jenniffer:

    EXCELLENT!
    If you are looking for a newborn class online! this is the best one that it can be! Tracy is so detailed in every single aspect of what you need in a newborn session, she cover every single thing in the book, and if you have questions she makes you feel so comfortable and answer them so kindly, she is clear that you can contact her after the workshop with any question and this is the best part, you get to be in a private newborn photography forum where you can ask and learn!
    I would HIGHLY recommend taking this class, if you want to become a great newborn photographer this is a must have class! Money great invested!!

    Connie:

    Tracy really makes the class worthwhile! She is informative, articulate and very willing to take the time to answer any questions. The best parts for me were when she discussed soothing techniques and posing. I do want to do a 1:1 mentoring in the near future, but I will have time to practice what I learned before I do it and I think I will get more out of the training. Im excited to have a Facebook Group to network with in Newborn Photography. Thanks Tracy!

    Irene:

    One of the best workshops Ive attended
    This workshop was so great! Ive been photographing newborns for two years and have never been to achieve certain poses. And I learned about so many and all the little tricks that go with. There is so much that Tracy covers. It is such a plethora of information and she doesnt rush through it at all. She answers everyones questions with details that only someone whos been doing it a long time would know. This really is a start to finish workshop including business, which is something most workshops dont cover. And of course there is continued support and resources when the class is over. I have yet to take another workshop that offers continued support when its over.

    Kristie:

    Awesome! I was so glad that I took this course! I am a beginner photographer and wanted to get some tips to take better photos. This class provided me with many great tips and tricks that I am totally capable of doing. Tracy is a great speaker and easy to listen to. Thanks for a wonderful learning experience.

    Stephanie:

    Fantastic value! This workshop is a fantastic value at $350. Tracy holds nothing back as she teaches everything from preparing for a session to editing newborn photos (in a video after the class). She helps everyone get started in the online format and encourages questions. Its a great learning opportunity where you dont even have to leave your home/studio! I appreciate the detailed information and especially the after-the-class online opportunities for even more learning. The groups on facebook give you an endless resource for your business questions. Thank you so much!

    Vicks:

    Really great and well worth participating in! I really enjoyed Tracys Newborn Photography! Even though the timing was a little late for me being from the UK it was so worth taking the class. Tracy was extremely enthusiastic, you can really tell she loves newborn photography and is very keen to pass on her knowledge and experience with people. I had done a couple of newborn sessions before I took the class and I now cant wait for my next one as all the little tricky things I couldnt quite work out or wondered why I couldnt make the shot work has been explained by Tracy in the workshop. The videos were really helpful and if anyone asked a question it was answered really well and very quickly. I now have a better understanding of lighting positions and also how to pose the baby for various shots. It cleared up a lot of missing information for me and I can not wait to put it into practice! Tracy has also been a great help after the workshop and answered a few more questions that have cropped up! I would definitely recommend it to those venturing into the newborn photography arena. Thanks Tracy!
