Calm The Chaos:
The Lifestyle Photographer’s
Guide To Newborn Sessions
Imagine if low lighting homes didn’t cause you a single bit of anxiety, because you knew exactly how to use light to your advantage. You could trade in evening and weekend sessions for daytime, in home newborn sessions. You could charge $600 or more for your lifestyle newborn sessions, and had clients excited to hand over their dollars just to get to work with you.
i want in
the good news is you can.
Calm The Chaos is a self guided, online newborn education program that was created with your struggles & success in mind.
Low-key panic before every newborn session because, what if it’s too dark, what if the baby is fussy, what if it’s a total disaster?
Would rather hand the baby over to mama at the first sign of a fuss, instead of attempting to soothe them yourself.
Have ever brought a list of Pinterest poses with you, but they were difficult to implement and felt a little stiff and awkward.
Know there’s probably a way to find clients who want to work with you but are a bit lost on how exactly to get them to find you.
Want to get started photographing newborns but have no idea what you need to know or where to start.
I began this course feeling like I was still stuck in the gray area of newborn photography. I was unsure about lighting and so nervous to walk into a low lighting situation. After this course, I am feeling confident to go kick it with some babies and capture some memories!
When I first started lifestyle newborn photography 8 years ago I couldn’t efficiently soothe babies, I would have a minor meltdown if there wasn’t enough natural light, and I found all of my poses on Pinterest and I wasn’t able to capture that natural and authentic love. So, I lurked in facebook groups and spent hours searching youtube to learn how to take *chef’s kiss* AMAZING newborn photos.
You can do it like that too. It only took me oh… about 8 years and 3 of my own kids to learn what I know now. But seriously… Do you want to achieve those beautiful newborn images you dream about and start charging a higher price tag on your newborn sessions in a fraction of the time it took me?
These lessons will help you prepare yourself and your clients for the session from what to tell your clients to planning your session flow. We’ll make intentional changes to your current booking process, while also polishing those pre-sesion emails & guides to create your effective client prep process.
This module is focused on nailing down in home lighting to finally defeat your fear of dark homes. You’ll learn to understand how light works, how to use added light, and how to use light to create consistent images.
These lessons will help you learn to soothe babies for a smoother, safer, less stressful session. You’ll learn the 5 techniques to soothe any fussy baby to a happy sleepy baby, while also learning various wrapping techniques to add variety in your images and photographing sweet little details.
This module is focused on photographing the baby with family and siblings to finally create those authentic, natural poses you’ve always wanted. You’ll learn to use composition and perspective for added variety and how to incorporate uncooperative siblings into the session.
From crafting a client experience, to creating a marketing plan, these lessons will walk you through mapping out the ultimate client journey, my 3 tier marketing plan for newborn photography, and inspire you to finally stop using Instagram as your ONLY source of marketing to book more newborn clients.
In this module you’ll go beyond the session as you learn to cull images and create a proofing gallery. Watch me edit several common issues in newborn images including baby acne, skin discoloration and smoothing, as well as creating consistently edited images that pop.
