Newborn mentoring

Newborn mentoring with Daphne is for photographers who are looking for perfection and focused on baby images. If this is what you had in mind you are in the right place. If there's something I'll teach is patience, look for what is important in newborn photography and what not to focus on vs what is truly important. if you are looking to safe up lots of years of looking and watching YouTube video and still feel you just don't get it, this is a great opportunity to learn secrets that will make your next and all sessions a success.

I see it as a great investment that will help you cut down years of trying and give you more of doing, all though there’s so much out there where you can learn in a long period, what I see with when I mentor you is, you have it all there to visually learn and a moment of hands on with someone to let you know you are doing it right or help you tighty up, you will save up so many years of investing hours, months, and years not knowing what to do trying to figure it out as you aren't sure what you need to improve vs doing this investment and changing your newborn photography in a day! If there’s something I’ve learned is investing in education first will make you realize what props not to buy and which will be the best posing props you can get.

When I first started focusing on newborns, mentoring was very limited and the styles were very alike,  Workshops were really expensive, not tailored to your individual needs, and focused mostly on observation with no chance to ask questions. Now we are here today, where the options these days are ENDLESS, which I imagine is equally overwhelming.  There are so many different teaching styles, sometimes it takes trial and error to realize what works for you.  I am entirely self taught, mostly because of the aforementioned lack of options, and believe me it would have been so much easier if Id had the tools there is now, back when I felt newborn photography was my calling. I would have shaved literally years off of my growth.


I want you to leave your experience with me knowing that all the knowledge you take with you from our mentoring class,

will also help you know how to troubleshoot errors to get to from where you are to where you want to be.


I see the full range of skill levels and enjoy teaching them all. Whether you are totally new to the field, or you have the Einstein, the PLM, and all the fancy gear and you STILL CAN’T GET YOUR LIGHT TO LOOK RIGHT.

We will have a great learning experience, and makes me very happy you chose me to guid you!

Before the day comes let's prepare for a great day, help me be ready for you with questions you would love for me to be ready to answer and that are mostly important to you. click here
