Newborn Baby and Maternity Photography Training

Are you a professional photographer who has perhaps given newborn photography a go and not had much success? Or perhaps you are an enthusiastic amateur who is looking to take up newborn photography professionally. My training days may be just what you are looking for.

Do you want to know the top tips and tricks for getting sleepy babies and how to carry out  a session safely? Perhaps you would like help with lighting or editing images sensitively and naturally? My training days have been described as a great first step on the ladder and I have helped many photographers get their photography businesses off the ground, not only through boosting confidence in posing but also by offering honest advice.

There is a strong emphasis on safety at all training sessions and I am passionate about raising standards in newborn photography. In the session I will cover everything I do from preparing the session, the lighting and equipment I use, to post processing editing.

One day 1-2-1 training session - £375 (9.30-3pm)
Two day 1-2-1 training session - £475 - day one posing and 2nd morning editing (Second day 9.30-12pm)

Preparing for the session

Posing, lighting, workflow and styling

 Editing (day 2 only)

It is just a £175 deposit payable upon booking to secure your slot. All payments are non-refundable however sessions may be sold on. Payment in full is required 2 weeks prior to the day unless it has been discussed otherwise. Training takes place in my studio in Caldwell, Swadlincote, South Derbyshire.

Photographers at all skill levels can learn and improve from the tips in our workshop, but I do recommend you have a working knowledge of exposure, manual camera settings, and basic Photoshop before you begin.

Reviews from past mentees

"If you are serious about starting newborn photography then I highly recommend purchasing training from Victoria. I remember coming away feeling very excited to start my new venture! Thank you x" ~ Emma Sawbridge, June 2018

"I just wanted to say thank you so much to Victoria for an amazing workshop. I came down from Manchester to Derbyshire to take part in Newborn Photography training and I'm so glad I did. Victoria is witty, approachable and honest in the way she teaches. We had two newborn models over two days who both had different levels of alertness, it was nice to see a professional at work dealing with both babies and their personalities. I would highly recommend this 1-2-1, it was money and time well spent for me. Thank you again!" ~ Leonie Moore, June 2019

"I had my newborn training this week with Victoria and I honestly cannot express how amazing she was from start to finish! She answered any questions I had no matter the type whether it was from safety, wrapping, business and how I should begin my newborn journey. My first day we had to clients in and it was amazing to see how Victoria sets up for a shoot as well as how she deals with clients and you could see how well she made everyone feel at ease. I learned so much in these two days that I can now apply to my work and it is all thanks to her. My second day we talked business and editing as well as some wrapping techniques. I was so excited to go back on my second day as how at ease and relaxed I felt with her, which was so important for me not only as a trainee but a person too. I recommend anyone starting in newborn photography to definitely do the 2 day course with Victoria! Thank you again for 2 amazing days!" ~ Bruna Alexandra, May 2021
