So you’re ready to take your newborn photography to the next level. You want to learn the secrets to perfect posing and master those dreamy, creamy edits. But you’re not ready to drop a mortgage payment on airfare and tuition, or you can’t squeeze a workshop into your jam-packed schedule.

You’re in luck. Our popular newborn workshop is now available on a USB flash drive, so you can set your own schedule and improve your craft when it’s convenient for you. Learn transitioning techniques while you’re enjoying your first cup of coffee in the morning, or brush up on baby-whispering secrets before your next session. This pre-recorded course puts all the info from our newborn workshop at your fingertips, so you can hone your skills without having to rearrange your life. Best of all, you can watch it again and again; any time you need a quick refresher.

This one-of-a-kind educational experience includes tips to help you prepare for your newborn sessions: Set up your studio to make sessions go smoothly, learn soothing secrets, prepare beanbag shots, nail those amazing sleepy poses, and transition easily from pose to pose. You’ll also learn crucial safety tips and editing techniques. We cover it all!

Your pre-recorded workshop offers more than six hours of narrated instructional video to help you achieve fantastic newborn images. Photographers at all skill levels can learn and improve from the tips in our workshop, but we do recommend you have a working knowledge of exposure, manual camera settings, and basic Photoshop before you begin.

Q: Will I learn to edit newborn images?

Yes. You’ll learn to use MCP Newborn Necessities Photoshop actions (not included) to fix common issues such as:

- Slightly underexposed images

- Jaundiced, red, or blotchy skin tones

- Baby acne and flaky skin

You will also learn basic post-processing techniques for newborn images and how to achieve certain sought-after newborn conversions, in both color and black-and-white.

NOTE: The editing portion is taught in full Photoshop. If you are using Elements, some editing techniques might differ slightly, but you’ll have access to a forum where you can ask other Elements users for tips and work-arounds!


Q: How much is shipping and when will my USB flash drive arrive?

Shipping Worldwide is included in the price. 

We ship once a week via Priority Mail. Customers in the United States should receive their Newborn Photography Workshop USB drive within 1-2 weeks from the purchase date.

Customers outside of the United States can expect it to take up to 2-3 weeks from the purchase date due to travel distance and customs - we ship Internationally via Global Priority Mail. 

 

Q: Can new photographers take this class? Can experienced photographers benefit from this workshop too? Do I need any specific editing software?

Anyone can take this class. Photographers with a working knowledge of exposure, camera settings, and basic editing will benefit most.

Advanced photographers, who are new to newborn photography, can apply the skills learned from our workshop into their thriving businesses or just expand their knowledge base. 

Newborn Necessities Photoshop actions will be used during the editing portion of class.  Tracy highly recommends these, though you do not need them to sign up for the workshop.
