Newborn photography requires a skill set unlike any other genre of photography.  To succeed, you not only need to master your camara, lighting and processing, but you must undertstand to pose them, read them, comfort them, and keep them safe.  I have spent ten years capturing hundreds of new souls, and tweaking my workflow along the way.  I've earned "Best of" awards for a quality product AND a professional, client-focused business presence.  These two go hand in hand to ensure a successful business.  Let's work together to get your business where you want it to be!


Photographers and their business must reside outside of 25 miles from 60137 to qualify for mentoring.  My studio is located in Glen Ellyn, IL, not far from both O'Hare and Midway airports.  Plenty of great hotel options, restaurants and shopping near by!

 FLY ON THE WALL and Q&A $400

Long morning of session observation and learning!  You will sit quietly beside me as I work through a newborn session.  We will have an hour to chat 1:1 afterwards during which you can ask me anything!


We will spend the day delving in to all things newborn photography!  Sit beside me and snap away (Build that portfolio!) as we chat and work through a newborn session.  Set up, studio lighting, camera tips, posing, soothing, post processing workflow and more.  Client communication from start to finish - booking, contract, prep and more.  Lunch and snack will be provided.  *Must be able to shoot in Manual Mode! Bring a friend discount - $50 off each mentoring purchase

SKYPE MENTORING $100 per hour

Have some business and processing questions but don't need to brush up on your posing skills?  I offer an hourly skype rate of $100 per hour, with a one hour minimum.  Before we chat, we will correspond via email.  You will be asked to compile a list of your goals for our time together to ensure we make the most of your skype mentoring time.  That's choose what you would like to learn!
