Maternity Newborn Photography Workshops



Want to become a newborn photographer or a maternity photographer? Set your maternity and newborn work apart from your competition? Get better with studio lighting, natural lighting and mixed lighting? Pose maternity and newborn clients?

Sign up for a comprehensive maternity newborn photography workshop! Learn how I typically shoot and process maternity and newborn in a hands-on and interactive workshop environment.

Lighting will be shared at the studio & on-location and triggers will be provided to each student. Maximum 8 students.



Students should have a good understanding of aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Students will learn how to perfect straight-out-of-the-camera images using available light (reflector, strobes and natural light).



  • DSLR camera. Newborn photography lenses: either 35mm or 50mm or 85mm. Maternity photography lenses: 85mm, 135mm or 70-200mm. You are more than welcome to bring other lenses too (e.g. 24-70mm, 200mm or macro lens 100mm  or 105mm).
  • Basic knowledge of ACR/Lightroom and Photoshop



We will cover:


  • Lenses and focal lengths
  • Camera settings
  • Natural light, studio light, continuous light and equipment
  • Metering for correct exposure
  • Photoshop post-production (retouching, composites, overlays etc)


  • Maternity Poses – Single, couple, family
  • Creative maternity photography ideas, composition and styling
  • Studio and outdoor – how to shoot in the studio and outdoor. Learn to shoot in sun, shade and overcast days


  • Basic newborn poses – baby, parent-baby, sibling-baby
  • Advanced newborn posing –  composites, specialty props (e.g branch, dreamcatchers, etc)


  • RAW adjustments
  • Retouching
  • Composites
  • Overlays



You may use any of the images you take at the workshop for your portfolio.
