Suzanne Merrill

Newborn Photography

Join Suzanne, owner and photographer at Starr Photography for a day filled with intense learning and fun! She will review all aspects of newborn photography and running a successful and profitable business! She will go over her specific parent prep that you will get to take home and put into use in your own studio! She will review how she sets up for each session and discuss in depth her workflow of posing and why this is such an important part of a successful session. She will review safety in wrapping, posing, and overall studio safety for newborns. She will demonstrate and discuss the top 3 wraps she utilizes in every session, teaching the proper techniques for wrapping a baby in her toes out crisscross wrap, womb wrap, and potato sack. She will demonstrate a few variations of prop posing including a bowl, bucket, and the tucked in pose. She will go over simple poses on the bean bag and demonstrate Huck Finn and Head on Hands. Demonstrations will be done with newborns at or around 7-21 days of age and some demonstrations will be done with a posing doll. Suzanne will review her marketing procedures and what has worked to get her business started and continued to enable her business to thrive. She will talk about pricing structure that has worked over the lifetime of her business, where she started with pricing and where she is today. This is a fantastic course for anyone who is looking to jump into newborn photography or someone who has been in the field for years and is just looking to learn new tips, tricks, and other techniques that have worked for me! Take your business to the next level and join us, remember there’s always something new to learn!
