Motherhood images can be rewarding but challenging. From the moment a woman learns she is pregnant, up until she send her baby away to college, any image can be considered a motherhood moment. This program focuses on the beginning of this journey, to include maternity, birth, fresh 48, newborn and breastfeeding portraits. In this course, you will discuss how to capture beautiful maternity portraits using custom gowns and how to include the entire family into the portrait session. The class will cover the intimate moments of a birth story, capturing that very first breath of new life and those most precious first moments as a family or maybe the fresh 48 images that are captured in the first 48 hours of life. Your instructor, Tara Ruby, will walk you through what images are expected, the best place to get situated in the hospital room, and what images are preferred from this monumental event. Finally, you will discuss newborn portraits, basic images, and then into the more complicated composites. Breastfeeding images can be taken at a newborn session, and Tara can teach you on how to work them into your sessions. After you discuss the portrait sessions themselves, you will be given a brief overview of what and how to sell products from these moments and sessions. The class will talk folio boxes, memory albums and prints. You will also discuss vendors and vendor relationships, props and gear. You will walk away from your time with Tara ready to tackle everything that is included in the motherhood journey.
