Kansas City Newborn Photography Workshop


We are so excited to announce 2015 Blissful Baby Workshop dates in Kansas City. Janean and I met in 2007 working together as educators. We both began our photography journeys in 2010 and after years of perfecting the art of newborn posing, we finally decided to bring you an amazing workshop! Janean and I have spent several months collaborating with one another, thoroughly planning out every detail of the Blissful Baby Workshop!

Our goal is to teach you the fundamentals of newborn photography, as well as, running a successful business. Our two-day workshop will cover studio lighting, newborn posing & safety, parent & sibling posing, post processing, pricing and marketing your business. We will show you how to perfect your poses and how to communicate with parents. You will also learn ways to calm and soothe the baby during a session. Each day, we will have 2 newborn models.

Day 1:
-Meet and setup; First newborn model arrives. We will do a series of bean bag poses.
-lunch (provided) and questions.
-Second newborn model arrives. We will focus on using props, wrapping baby and parent and family poses.
-At the end of the day, we will discuss photoshop and post processing.
-Dinner provided by Janean and Alyisa. This will be a time to talk about day 1, socialize, and get to know one another more!
