Five years ago on April 5th my amazing daughter was born. She changed my world in the most awesome of ways. I am so blessed to have her as my daughter and canNOT believe that she is already FIVE. It is unreal how fast the time has gone by. I love watching her become such a sweet and beautiful little girl. I am forever grateful to be her mommy…

This year she requested to have a FROZEN Birthday Party (like every other young child out there right now ~ thank you Disney :) ) And I was all for it! She has SO much fun and loved being Elsa. There were so many giggles and smiles. We painted princess masks, play pin the carrot on Olaf, and yummy cake! Thank you to everyone who came and made her day so special!

 

Brooklynn,

I’m still in a little shock that you are five years old already. God has truly blessed us with such an amazing little girl. My prayer for you (and always has been) that God will guide you and use you in ways that will rock the world. That you will pursue your dreams and follow your heart. That you will continue to love God and grow to know Him more deeply. Daddy & Mommy love you beyond words and are forever thankful that you are our daughter. You are a blessing from above!

Love,
Mommy

As photographers, we all start somewhere… My journey started before my daughter was born in Wedding and Family Photography and then shifted after she was born. I engulfed myself into everything “newborn” surrounding photography and was hungry and passionate to learn how to pose these wee ones safely and efficiently. I love the challenge that surrounds photographing newborns and yet using simplicity to capture these babes in the safest way possible.

In 2011 I wrote my first Baby Safe Newborn Posing Guide and launched our Baby Safe Photography website that has helped educate newborn photographers around the world on the importance of safety. I love seeing how it has impacted photographers lives in providing them with confidence to photograph newborns with safety as their #1 goal. We also use this website to feature other photographers who have joined the bandwagon in teaching on safety, which I love. Along with our website I have also had the wonderful opportunity of being featured on multiple websites that have also helped further our efforts in teaching on Newborn Photography. This passion to teach on newborn safety has also opened up speaking opportunities both locally and nationally. We also will be releasing our SECOND Newborn Guide this May of which all  of our attendees will be receiving a FREE digital download copy of!!

I love teaching, and over these past 7 years have had the wonderful opportunity of teaching numerous photographers in our private 1:1 Mentoring Sessions. It has been so great to meet so many photographers who have traveled from as far as Boston Massachusetts to local Seattle photographers. And I am excited to announce that this year we are launching Newborn Workshops which will provide small class opportunities to start building {safe} posing skills and techniques that will help continue {or start} the journey as a newborn photographer.

During the Workshop with me, you will learn everything from the basics of proper lighting {using a soft box and natural light}, composition, newborn soothing, to safely posing newborns as well as build your portfolio. Limited spaces available.

Newborn Workshop with up to 3 models | The White Space Studio in Monroe, WA (*approximately 30 minutes from Seattle, WA)

2013 Tuition Rates: $995 USD per person

*1:1 Mentoring also  available please click here for details

Attendees: limited to 4 photographers

Registration: $395 USD retainer to reserve your spot and is NON-REFUNDABLE. The remaining balance is due 1-week (7 days) prior to the workshop date.

What’s Included:

Michelle Newell Photography’s Newborn Guide & Newborn Session – What to Expect Client Guide PSD files.
Michelle Newell Photography’s Skin Smoothing Action

What You Need:

It is recommended that you own a DSLR and know your camera. It is also assumed that you are comfortable shooting in manual mode and have a basic understanding of aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings. Michelle will briefly go over settings and how she goes about exposing an image for color and black & white. However, please note that this is not a course on learning the functions of a camera.

50mm prime lens (24-70mm lenses also work well). Michelle primarily shoots with a Canon 50mm f/1.2 lens for all newborn sessions.

Wowza! This past month has been one FULL and FUN month! It has been so fun to see so many returning clients again as well as meet so many fresh new and beautiful faces! And I wanted to share all that has been taking place these past couple of weeks in one big sneak peek post.

I have been brainstorming new and exciting things that I can’t wait to implement for 2014! One of our newest endeavors is providing Newborn Workshops for aspiring photographers! I have been teaching 1 on 1 Mentoring Sessions over the past 3 years and am so excited to create a classroom experience where more photographers can come together and learn about the importance of newborn photography safety.

In the meantime, here is a little sneak peek of what has been taking place! Enjoy!
