I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve blogged but I am so happy to be back!!! Life has been SUPER busy. Grayson is 1 next weekend and Dylan will be going into Kindergarten this year, so I plan on spending more time on photography. In order to do that, I felt like I needed to get re-inspired and invested in an amazing workshop offered by Erin Elizabeth Photography located out of Perth, Australia. She came to the US this week and I could NOT pass up the opportunity to meet Erin. We have been in photography groups together for years and I’ve always admired her work, so learning from her was just incredible! I felt like a learned a ton and it was definitely money well spent on my education as a professional photographer.
All of these babies are NOT clients of mine and were posed by Erin herself. Erin trained me on lighting, posing, angles, macro photography (which I’ve been dying to learn from her!), setups, editing, workflow and business. Erin runs an extremely successful home studio in Australia and I cannot wait to apply what I have learned as a Raleigh newborn photographer!! Erin and I are different in that she shoots natural light and I shoot with studio lighting, but these images and lighting are easily applied to studio lighting since a window is essentially a big soft box. ;) I am so excited to share my workshop images with you. Erin was amazing at teaching angles and constructive criticism on how to do it better and see her vision and what she looks for when photographing babies. So in love with these images and I hope you love them too! I will definitely be mixing my style with the style of these images shown so I thought they were important to share. :) Disclaimer that these images were not taken in my studio and are not my props – though I do have some of the items pictured. Workshop was held at a hosting studio out of state.
