2 Day Newborn Photography Training

2 Day (1-2-1) Newborn Photography Training Course – £1290

This course is perfect for photographers who are familiar with their camera settings, in particular using Manual Mode and are ready to embark on Newborn Photography as a specialised genre.

If you are brand new to photography and would like to understand the fundamentals of photography, such as The Exposure Triangle, Camera Menus and Settings and Newborn Photography, then check out my 2 Day Course here. 

Back to the 2 Day Course …

Both days run from 10am – 4pm with refreshments included.


On Day One you will learn everything you need to know about Newborn Photography. Starting from the necessary equipment required, to baby safety and newborn posing techniques. You will be able to observe first hand, how I hold, settle, pose and wrap a newborn, together with lighting positioning and camera angles.

One of the most exciting aspects of my newborn 1-2-1 training course, is the 3-4 hour time spent with a newborn baby. During this time you will be able to use your own camera to take your very own images, which you can edit as you wish and use for your portfolio and social media marketing.

I will spend some time in the afternoon answering any business or general questions you may have and you will be able to watch me edit some of the images from the day, using Lightroom and Photoshop.

Here is the breakdown:

  • Baby Safety
  • Camera and lighting equipment and settings
  • Fabrics and props
  • Basic wrapping techniques
  • Camera angles
  • Real baby for 3-4 hours
  • Use your own camera to take photos of the real baby, to use in your portfolio
  • Refreshments break
  • Practice with stand-in baby
  • Watch my editing flow in Lightroom and Photoshop, using the images taken on the day.

Day Two

On this day, you will have the opportunity to put into practice everything you learnt from Day One….  and this really is the fun part, you will have free reign on all of my props, layers and outfits, which you can style as you wish.

First thing in the morning, we will run through your posing flow for the day and when the newborn arrives, it will be over to you!

Observing and then practicing straight off the bat, really will allow all the information from the previous day to sink in.  I will be right by your side, so when you need assistance, or a little reminder, I will be there, making sure that you and baby are happy, every step of the way.

Practising with a real baby for 2 days will give you so much more confidence and experience.

This two day 1-2-1 is perfect for if you really do want to ensure you leave with not just the knowledge, but the chance to actually put this into practice with me right there. 

If you’re very new to newborn photography, you can take it slow and steady as you learn to hold, comfort and pose the baby.  If you are more experienced you can literally run the entire newborn session – if you choose. 

You won’t be pushed into anything at all, and you’ll only do what you’re comfortable with.

If you would like some extra editing time, we can adjust the close of the session to accommodate for 30 minutes, to run through some of the images you have taken. Otherwise the session will run right to the end of Day 2.

You won’t leave empty handed as you will receive a goodie bag, with all of the following:

  • Base Wrap from the Newborn Nerds (USA)
  • 100+ Photoshop Actions to assist with newborn skin editing and image finishing
  • Comprehensive PDF showing every pose and where to place the posing beans and more!
  • Certificate of Completion handed to you at the end of the day.
  • Email containing a list of trusted Vendors, some with exclusive discounts
  • Invitation to my private Facebook Education Page
  • Ongoing help and support after your training

Remember, the best way to become a pro is by learning from the best and through practice. This is why my sessions entail interactive and practical aspects. You will be able to learn, shoot any queries and get answers in real-time!

Booking this training session is also super easy. You can go choose your date and pay here  or you can email me at info@JoanneCollinsPhotography.co.uk if you have some questions which you would like answering first. I will look forward to helping you turn into a pro newborn photographer!

"I had a day's training with Joanne to learn about Newborn photography, I can’t recommend the training and her enough! It was so informative and helpful for me. She’s even continued to help me after, sending me ideas and thoughts she’s had about questions I had asked on the day. Not to mention how beautiful her photos are! Absolutely stunning! She is so so talented and such a lovely lady. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to take up some training, 10/10!"
