I would love to work 1:1 with you to help you elevate your newborn images. My mentoring sessions are 2 days full of babies, business, posing & editing. I will share my secret to the perfect creamy baby skin & how to tighten up those poses to perfection. Both days will be hands on instruction, so bring your camera & laptop & be ready to learn!! :) I cannot wait to help you take your newborn photography to the next level!
Must be 60 miles outside of the St Louis Metro Area. Lodging not included in pricing. Email for pricing.
Just a quick little tour of my happy place!

What camera do you shoot with?
My current go to is the Nikon D750! I have 2 of them and just absolutely love them! I have been eyeballing that D850 though! ;)
What lenses do you use?
Well, in the studio I shoot mainly with the 24-70 2.8. It is a workhorse lens that never fails. I also have the Sigma 35 Art lens & of course my nifty 50!! :) I have the Nikon 105 macro that I will use as well.
Outside, my Sigma 135 is my absolute fav! It is a great lens for all types of outdoor portraiture.
Where are you located?
I am in Alton, IL. Alton is about 35 minutes across the Mississippi River from St Louis. It is a super cute little river town that also boasts being one of the most haunted towns in America!!
What do you use to pose newborns?
I am currently using a table with 1 inch foam on top and then cover that with about 9 blankets. I use the Shape Shifters from Hello Little Props under my blankets & just love the flexibility I have with that system.
Where do you get all of your props?
Well...I have a few gals that I have supported for years & then I have some amazing new gals that I have added to my go to vendors list.
A lot of the gorgeous floral headbands come from So Tweet Designs, Huckleberry Baby, & AV Props.
For newborn outfits, So Tweet Designs & No 2 Willow Lane are my favs! Timeless pieces that will never go out of style.
My beds, baskets & posing fabrics come from quite a few different vendors. A couple of favs are Bailey's Knits, Hello Little Props, Roses & Ruffles, & Freebird Props.
