The Fees

What does it cost to train with me?

The cost of newborn photography training varies widely within the industry.

 

I'm a firm believer in providing the highest quality in depth training. I take the time to understand you, your business, what you need, and how you will best learn (because people learn in different ways - what suits one, may not suit another).

 

I have nearly a decade of teaching experience in the field of newborn photography and I've been a full time newborn photographer for 15 years.

 

I understand the difficulties faced by newborn photographers in today's competitive industry, and my aim is to have you stand out with confidence, creativity and ability.

 

Learning is a journey, and I understand that every newborn photographer will be at a different point in that journey which is why the packages below have been designed, with you in mind.
