Ohio Newborn Mentoring Workshop!

Toledo Ohio Newborn Mentoring Workshop || Jaci Forshtay Photography

Are you newborn photographer who just can’t seem to figure out how the heck to pose newborns so they’re comfy, curly, and safe?  Are you curious as to how to use studio lighting correctly?  Do you wonder how to get baby’s skin to look beautiful in post processing?  If so, you may want to jump on this opportunity!

I have an open seat for a 2:1 Newborn Mentoring Workshop in Bowling Green, Ohio on June 26th & 27th!  Here’s more information on what I’ll cover during our time together…

Tuition : $1650 (Grab your seat here.)

Duration : 2 Day Class

– Newborn Soothing Methods
– Posing Techniques
– Post Processing Workflow & Tips
– Business Q&A

**Bonus for 2:1 Mentorees**
– MORE “Hands On” Posing experience than workshops
– Portfolio Critique of your work – we’ll walk through your recent images together and discuss how to improve your posing/editing/lighting for your future sessions
– More intensive editing/workflow discussion

Come learn how I conduct my newborn sessions from beginning to end using studio light. We’ll discuss set-up & preparation and how I work with parents as well as camera and shooting techniques. You’ll get to watch my session workflow, see different soothing methods, and learn my posing techniques. We will work with 4 newborns during the workshop and have plenty of time for post-processing and business Q&A! You’ll have my undivided attention as well as immediate feedback and guidance on the images you’re capturing during the sessions.

Mentoring attendees will gain HANDS-ON experience on the second day!! When attendees are able to gain some “real” session experience, it can make such a difference going forward!!

– Swag Bag of Newborn Goodies & Discounts from my Workshop Sponsors
– Workshop Notes with photos & step-by-step instructions for each pose to take home and review
