2021 WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT

Sunday, March 7, 2021

Hello photography friends!!!!!!!  I’ve had lots of inquiries about small group newborn workshops and other educational opportunities I’m offering THIS YEAR, especially since I had to cancel 7 workshop dates and locations in 2020 due to Covid.   I’m overjoyed to announce that I will be offering 2 workshops this year!!!!!!  In June 2021 I’ll be in Georgetown Kentucky, and then in August I’ll be in Missouri at the Intuition Backgrounds by Becky Gregory studio!!!!!  Information on both workshops and what is included can be found here.  I hope to see some new AND some familiar faces this year.  Contact me with questions or to arrange a payment plan, I am more than happy to help!

Have you ever tried using a digital background?  I love that they can be so quick and easy as seen in this video tutorial.  In this case, I’ve designed the images with my props, flowers, greenery, layers, bowls, furs, etc, and photographed it with my big beefy camera.  All YOU have to do is insert your own newborn photo! (Examples below)  Today the NEW Holiday Digital Backgrounds are available!!!!!!!!  I love traditional Christmas colors like red and green, but I also like to use different, fun and unique color combinations to add variety to the holiday season portrait options.

New to digital backgrounds?  Here is a quick VIDEO TUTORIAL and some visual samples of how digital backgrounds work:

This design below is SO MUCH FUN!!!!  I added Christmas decorations to 2 different versions of this background, and then took it all away to create a simpler year-round option:

Here are some other samples of the NEW Holiday Designs in use:

Happy creating!!!!

The 2-day photography workshop in Manhatten Beach, California (back in early March, before the pandemic) was SO MUCH FUN!!!!!! First of all, I got to meet and hang out with these awesome, fun and talented women: And second, we got to meet and photograph 4 beautiful new babies and one darn cute sitter. Third, we got lots of great practice with lighting, posing, finding the right angle, composition, exposure, white balance, posing flow and so much more! Meet all of the models we had the pleasure of working with:

Addison – 12 days new

Last weekend I had the amazing opportunity to teach a workshop in Port Huron, Michigan. The students were SOOO much fun!  These ladies are not only colleagues in MI but friends, and truly supportive of one another.   This image pretty much sums up these awesome photographers:
