About the Newborn Photography Course

Newborn photography and working with tiny brand-new humans can easily become overwhelming and intimidating for beginners and even for some intermediate photographers too. This workshop will help you understand all the key elements needed, as well as tips and tricks you should know to successfully create beautiful images that you and your clients will love and treasure.

Presented by

Robyn Prevost has been specialising in the art of newborn photography for 5 years and has been recognised both locally, by the AIA awards, and internationally, by the Certified Newborn photographers and the International newborn photography association (INPA).

Early in Robyn’s career, she fell in love with creating pieces of art, of her tiny clients. She has strived for beautiful and timeless images that parents can reflect back on and remember how tiny their baby once was.
