Karen Marie will be focusing her course on creating both the art and the experience. She will start by discussing her process at Belly Beautiful Portraits, as preparation and workflow are essential when working with unpredictable newborns. She will then show techniques with lighting and angles to get the best out of your images. This discussion will lead to talking about styling techniques from wrapping, to colors, to props and backgrounds. Creating a successful business starts with having an amazing product. Karen will also delve into the many opportunities, throughout the newborn session, to turn your shoot into a connected and meaningful collaboration. She will discuss the importance of creating an amazing experience for one of the first bonding opportunities in a young families life. Your product should not just be gorgeous and emotionally charged images that you have created. It is the emotion and feelings from their experience, and how that special time resonates with your clients that will forever reside within your images.
