Working on your craft is always important!  So this past week, I took a time out from client sessions and flew to southern Florida to attend a Master Photography workshop featuring some of my wonderful colleagues both domestic and international.  The workshop featured acclaimed newborn photographers, Nicole Smith of Nicole Smith Photography and Amy McDaniel of Dewdrops Photography by Amy McDaniel.  It was amazing to work with them and witness their unique techniques for capturing newborns at their best.


Over several days, we reviewed safety, posing, set design (props and color choices) and all of the components that go in to a successful newborn session.  We also had the opportunity to cuddle with some adorable newborn models.  Who could resist??  We had only one newborn under two weeks of age.  The majority of our precious models were closer to three weeks old and the images we took were amazing!  This just serves to emphasize that you can capture those sleepy and squishy newborn photos with older babies.  New moms should never feel like they missed out if they don’t get the session scheduled in the first 14 days.

I’m so thankful every time I make this type of investment in industry education.  Time spent with the experts is invaluable to my business and I always look forward to translating this learning in to more treasured newborn images for my clients.
If you’re expecting and interested in booking a newborn session with Carrie Collins Photography please send me and email.  I’m currently booking for May 2017 and beyond.
