Newborn Safety and Posing for Professional Photographers

I ADORE capturing memories for my lovely families and I am very passionate about newborn safety, which coupled with a huge demand kicked off my venture into training new and established photographers in the art of safe and effective posing.​

I have invested hours into my own practice and developed little tricks of the trade which have become invaluable tools in my client workflow. During my training sessions we will cover:

  • Hands on experience to maximise learning.
  • Flow posing - my flow posing, transitions and tips for re-posing without disturbing baby's sleep.
  • Safety - how to ensure baby is safe, supported and comfortable throughout.
  • Spotters - when and how to use them.
  • Beanbag and Prop shots - how to move seamlessly and effortlessly between the two.
  • Angles - how small tweaks make big differences in camera.
  • Lighting - working with the shadows, flattering light for babies- studio and natural light.
  • ​Sleep Patterns - Reading baby's movements, understanding sleep patterns and the impact this has on posing.
  • Settling and soothing techniques including how to begin a session with an awake vs asleep baby.
  • ​Post Processing - My editing flow with little tips and tricks to speed up the editing process.

Plus a comprehensive guide to my favourite, high quality prop and fabric vendors.

​Private after session support with videos and reference guides.

As brand-new parents, the experience was fun and relaxing for both Poppy and ourselves - and that’s all thanks to Emma’s dedication to what is clearly her calling!

My aim is to have my trainees leave their sessions with excitement and a drive to take on board what they have learnt and develop it into their own styles. I have seen huge progress in my trainees already which makes me so, so happy- to see photographers finally nailing their nemesis pose or rediscover their passion for their little business is so wonderful.





Group Workshops


Training is available in either one to one, two to one, or with groups of no more than 5 people.
