Presented by

The Newborn Photography course is presented by Robyn Prevost. She 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.

I attended the Newborn Photography class and it was AWESOME! The facilitator Robyn is AMAZING, so passionate and knowledgeable. The course is a perfect combo of theory and the most AMAZING practical on little babes. Jenna was the perfect host as well.
I’m loving this journey and hope you guys will too!!!
