I had the amazing opportunity to mentor with an incredibly talented newborn photographer this past weekend! I’ve admired Jessica‘s work for about a year now and was thrilled when she decided to offer a unique two-day learning experience for myself and another photographer. I was surpised at how much I could still learn about photography, and am so excited that I’m now armed with all of these new ideas. I’ve always loved shooting newborns but I felt there were things I could improve upon and this definitely helped! Although I shot the photos, the models below were posed by Jessica and her assistant (and the blankets and props are from her studio), however, I am excited to be able to start collecting more of my own fabrics (and rediscovering some props I’ve had for years in a new way!) and am looking forward to practicing these poses out on some newborns this upcoming week! Here are my favorites!
