Mentoring & Workshops


Congratulations on taking the first step towards improving your newborn photography! With a 1:1 mentoring class in my studio, you'll receive the personal attention and practice you need to learn fast. It took me a long time to develop my workflow and consistency with my posing as I'm completely self-taught. I wasted a lot of time and money trying to figure stuff out on my own. Don't do what I did. Hire a newborn photography mentor. I'm extremely particular about my work and I'll teach you to be the same. If you want to learn to do it perfectly and not just mediocre, then my mentoring class should be just what you're looking for! Fill out your registration form here. See the SNEAK PEEK WORKSHOP section for information on workshops. Email Hailey for more information.

Perfect Pose 1:1 Mentoring in Calgary AB


Perfect Pose hands-on mentoring has been designed to focus on helping you achieve flawless posing and an efficient beanbag posing flow. I also include styling, wrapping, prop posing, calming and soothing baby, lighting angles, shooting angles, getting variety with difficult babies and more! You'll have the opportunity to watch me pose and shoot a full session and then go through the poses on your own (with my assistance if needed) and you can shoot each pose for your own portfolio. Classes take place in my SE Calgary (Alberta) studio. I shoot with a strobe but since the class is posing based, natural light photographers are welcome. Classes are available any day of the week. The start time is 9:00am and we will be working with the models until approximately 6:00pm, with an hour break for lunch and Q&A. Then we will spend the final hour on editing and using my Photoshop actions. I recommend you have some knowledge of working in Photoshop prior to the class. Snacks, drinks, and lunch will be provided. You'll also take home a swag bag full of beautiful props! I include my Photoshop action set, a posing guide, a discount code for my posing videos, and you'll have access to a private online group.

A Perfect Pose mentoring class is best for a professional photographer who already has some experience photographing newborns. You should have a full frame DSLR and a good understanding of shooting in manual mode as I won't be teaching camera use. I'm happy to share the settings I use so you're able to get the best result in my studio. I recommend bringing either a 50mm or 35mm prime lens (or both), extra memory cards, batteries, charger and a notebook/pen. The retainer is 50% of your class. The balance is due one month prior to class date. Save $100 by paying in full at time of booking. Register here. You may pay your retainer below through Paypal. An email transfer may also be sent to Refunds will not be given.

Perfect Practice Posing Refresher

This hands-on posing class is a half day class taken after a 1:1 class. It will give you a bit of extra practice and help solidify what you've learned. You will run the session with a model baby and I'll assist where needed. It can be taken the day after the posing class, or at a later date. I highly recommend taking the refresher! A 50% retainer is taken at booking. Refunds will not be given.

Full day group workshops take place in a host studio in another province or state, or in my Calgary AB studio for you and a friend (1:2). You will watch me shoot two full sessions including beanbag flow, props, wraps and parent posing (mom & baby), while explaining my steps.  Learn lighting angles, shooting angles, styling, and handling difficult babies. We'll start with the first bay at 9:00am, we'll have a half hour for lunch and Q&A, and we'll be finished with the second baby at around 5:30pm. We'll then spend about an hour going through my editing process in Photoshop and using my action set, which is included. Some knowledge of Photoshop is recommended. Workshops in a host studio will allow 5+ photographers. See below for included items. Save $100 by paying in full at time of booking.
