The Business of Newborn Photography – from start to finish!

November 20th, 2014

It’s finally here!  Jessica, of Jessica Mitchell Photography, and I have been talking and dreaming about this for a while.  We wanted to create an intimate newborn workshop that brings you the ultimate newborn photography learning experience.  With my business background and Jessica’s newborn skills, it seemed like the best fit to create The Business of Newborn Photography – from start to finish.best newborn workshop

A little about me
It’s been almost 3 years since I left corporate America to follow my dream of photography.  Starting in NYC and now in Charlotte, it hasn’t always been the easiest road but it’s worth it.  I can now say I love what I do and have learned how to create a successful business I enjoy that works for me and my clients.  Being a successful photographer is more than just knowing how to use your camera.  You have to understand the business side of it which, in my opinion, was harder than learning my camera.  Graduating with a Finance and Accounting degree makes it a little easier to understand what goes into making a business successful but it’s still so much more than that.  Over the last 3 years, I’ve made plenty of mistakes that you don’t have to.  I’ve learned many things the hard way.  That’s why I’m so passionate about the business side of photography and helping other photographers develop a business that works for them without some of the hurdles I had to face.  I’ll be sharing it all in this workshop!

A little about Jessica
Jessica has been in the photography business for a little over 10 years.  She’s been specializing in newborns and children for the past 4 with no looking back!  There is so much magic in capturing the first moments of a baby’s life.  She loves the flaky skin and snuggling with those chubby newborns.  As a photographer, you are given the opportunity to freeze moments in time for the family that they’ll always remember how special that time was.  Everyone starts off somewhere and her goal in this workshop is to help you perfect your weaknesses in order to excel in newborn photography.  Then you can feel the love and joy of capturing these timeless moments.

Newborn boy at home | Charlotte newborn photographer

August 27th, 2014

Photographing this family was a dream!  Their home is beautiful and every family image looks like we were styling for a magazine cover.  It also helps that baby Beale is the cutest thing ever.  He smiled so many times while I was in his nursery.  Could have been baby gas but, either way, it’s adorable.

Baby girl Nora | Charlotte area newborn photography

August 22nd, 2014

Baby Nora is a gorgeous, very loved little girl.  I just adore this little family.  Their home was the perfect backdrop to capture this time in their lives.  I’m a sucker for good light, clean color palettes and the family pup.  All of those mixed with a beautiful family is the perfect combination for a newborn session.

Salem | Charlotte Senior Photographer

August 20th, 2014

School is starting for a lot of the seniors in my area today.  I remember my last first day of school.  I was so excited to drive to school and park in the Senior lot.  I couldn’t wait to graduate and go off to college.  Senior year was one of my favorites.

To celebrate, Salem’s Senior photo session is featured.  She graduated with the class of 2014 and will be heading to Queens University to start her freshman year of college.  Salem has a heart of gold, is sweet as pie and a very talented young lady.  It was an honor getting to know her and photographing her Senior portraits.

Baby Girl A | Charlotte baby photography

August 18th, 2014

Baby girl A had one of the prettiest nurseries I’ve ever seen.  It was light and airy with the perfect amount of color and the softest fur rug.  I wanted to take a nap right in the floor it was so soft and comfy.  Mom and Dad even got to enjoy some time relaxing in their room with their baby girl.

Surprise session for mom | Charlotte Child Photographer

August 14th, 2014

Yesterday, you saw sweet Elizabeth’s newborn session on the blog.  Today, I’m happy to share a surprise session with her dad at 3 months old.  Dad wasn’t able to make it to the newborn session so he contacted me to do a surprise session for mom as a Mother’s Day gift.  He wanted to include his hobbies that he hopes to share with his daughter as she gets older like working on his car and motorcycle.  He did explain that Elizabeth could share in working on his motorcycle but was NEVER allowed to ride it, too dangerous.  A father protecting his little girl is the cutest thing in world.  Here are a few of my favorites from our time together!

Newborn Elizabeth | Charlotte baby photographer

August 13th, 2014

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this sweet girl twice now, for her newborn session and a 3 month surprise session with her dad.  You’ll see that session on the blog tomorrow.  I loved how easy it was to pose Miss Elizabeth.  She was so calm, cool and collected and ROCKED the big navy bow :)

The school year will be starting soon here in Charlotte for the class of 2015 and it’s time for Charlotte Senior pictures!  We had an awesome time in Noda for Ashley’s Senior photo shoot this Summer.  It was the perfect backdrop to compliment her amazing purple hair.  I could have photographed this gorgeous girl all day.  She’s spunky, funny, smart and quiet the model.  And thank you to Amber Hilton for the gorgeous hair and makeup!
