Newborn, Baby and Child Mentoring Sessions

I offer 1 : 1  mentoring classes,  small group mentoring sessions (max 4 people) and “shadow” sessions.   I have a Bachelors of Education degree and I prefer the small group setting to be able to provide more one on one attention to my students.  Attendees must reside outside of a 45 mile radius of my studio.     Two day mentoring includes newborn and baby posing and how to run a profitable business- because I fully believe there is more to running a business then posing and processing of images.   Please email me at to discuss this further.

*day will last from 9am-3pm (or 8:30-2:30 if the student prefers)

Small Group Mentoring -$100 discount per person

Shadow Session– $100- Watch me shoot a client session.  Since you will be watching me shoot an actual paid client session.   For legal reasons, this does not allow for any hands on posing done by anyone other then myself.   You will have the opportunity to arrive early,  watch me set up,  ask questions during that time regarding the set up,  watch me shoot a session of our choice and then 15 minutes of follow up after the client leaves.
