Mentoring

My full day newborn photography mentoring session takes place in my studio in Ottawa. You will experience how I typically shoot a newborn session from start to finish. My mentoring is HANDS ON – you’ll get to break out your own camera and put the skills that you’re learning to work. You will be able to use all the photos you take for your portfolio. I will walk you through my editing process on multiple photos and teach you how to achieve soft, dreamy, beautifully toned photos.

Those within a 100km radius of Stittsville, Ontario are not permitted to register for a mentoring session.
