{Denver, CO} Newborn Photography Workshop

In September, we visited Denver, Colorado for another two-day workshop! Our host was Jessica Arellin with Jessica Arellin Photography.  Jessica was a wonderful host and she kindly opened her home for the workshop! We had attendees who traveled far for this workshop, including other areas of Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and even ALASKA! How cool is that?! We had 4 models scheduled throughout the weekend and all of them did so great! We also had the chance to test Jessica’s posers from Little Dreamer Props! YES… She not only runs her own photography business, but she makes awesome posers to help your newborn photography workflow! We came home from Denver and ordered a square beanbag and Jessica kindly sent us her entire set of posing pillows! Thanks so much Jessica!

Thank you to all of our sponsors who participated in the workshop; Lily Mily Boutique, Fiber & Twine, Lemon & Pearl Designs, Emma Ruth Designs, Precious Little Baby, Lavender and Lace and The Pink Dandelion.

Newborn Posing Workshop {Cincinnati, Ohio}

In July, we visited Cincinnati, Ohio for another two-day workshop! Our host was Jennifer Watkins with Baby Bliss Studio. Her studio was so awesome! It was a really old home that was built back in the 1800s and it has been remodeled into office/studio spaces!  We had attendees who traveled far for this workshop, including other areas of Ohio, Indianapolis, and New Jersey! How cool is that?! We had 5 models scheduled throughout the weekend and all of them did so great! On Sunday, we had a rain storm come through which caused the natural light to be too dark so we switched back to studio light for that portion. This was GREAT for the attendees to see because it helped them to see that studio light is a great perk for reasons like this. On Saturday evening

Thank you to all of our sponsors who participated in the workshop; Lily Mily Boutique, Fiber & Twine, Serendipity Backgrounds, Lemon & Pearl Designs, Emma Ruth Designs, Riley’s Mom Makes Hats and Lavender and Lace.

Newborn Photography Workshop {Kansas City, MO}

We are both from the Kansas City area so during the year, we have 2-3 Kansas City Newborn Posing Workshops! The workshops take place at Aly Marie Photography‘s studio in downtown Lee’s Summit (a suburb of KC).  Sometimes, we rent additional space so we are able to teach natural light during the workshop as well! Usually I (Alyisa) teach the studio light portion of the workshop and Janean teaches the natural light portion. We had a lot of fun getting to know all of the girls who attended! We were so impressed with everyone who signed up for our June workshop because many of the girls were very new to the photography world and it was so amazing to see them make this investment into their businesses to become better! It truly inspired us both! In this post, I’ve also included some images from a few 1:1 mentoring sessions!

Thank you to all of our sponsors who participated in the workshop; Little Ewe, Lily Mily Boutique, Inspired By Adele, Goodnight Moon Props, Manly and Pretty Little Things, Sweet December and last but not least (the creator of our awesome goodie bags), The Pink Dandelion.

Newborn Posing Workshop {Minneapolis, Minnesota}

Our Minneapolis Newborn Posing Workshop will forever and always be dear to our hearts because this was the first traveling workshop for Blissful Baby! The workshop consisted of two days and we had 4 models scheduled throughout the weekend! Wait… I take that back, we had 5 models scheduled because our first momma had twins and allowed us to play with them both! All of the attendees were so kind and each of them were so eager to learn! We couldn’t have asked for a better host, as Krystle Foley with KLiK Foley opened her studio to us for the weekend and surprised us all with thoughtful gifts!

While we were there, we visited the most AMAZING fabric store where Blissful Baby stocked up on lots of new backdrops! We will definitely be returning to Minneapolis in the years ahead to visit our sweet new friends! Thank you to all of our sponsors who participated in the workshop; The Knitting Mister, Little Ewe, Lily Mily Boutique, Inspired By Adele, Goodnight Mouse Baby Knits, Goodnight Moon Props, Le Petite Couture Designs and last but not least (the creator of our awesome goodie bags), The Pink Dandelion.
