Maxine+Shellaine offer newborn workshops and 1:1 mentoring.
After training with Maxine+Shellaine you will walk away feeling confident that you can photograph a newborn session, soothe baby and provide a quality finished product to your clients. You will learn the art of safely posing baby, lighting, camera settings, editing and much, much more. Students can view our online newborn photography gallery here. Many of our previous students have requested to learn the art of maternity photography in addition to newborn photography mentoring. Samples of our maternity photography are available to view here.
What do our newborn photography workshops include?
With Maxine and Shellaine you will get two Edmonton newborn photography mentors! Enjoy learning from two of the best newborn photographers in Alberta. Our mentoring covers everything from lighting and posing to editing. Students will observe how newborns are posed and then have the chance to photograph them, and complete the images by editing in the same steps that Maxine and Shellaine use. After the class you will be added to an online Facebook group for on-going support.
We strive to build an uplifting, supportive, photography community, and cannot wait for you to join!
Interested in Mentoring with us:
Message us for details on 1:1 mentoring. Mentoring sessions will be held at our Photography Studio in Edmonton, Alberta. We are happy to discuss specific mentoring requests, portfolio review and offer business advice as well during these mentoring sessions.
Warmly, Maxine and Shellaine Edmonton Newborn Photography Mentors
