Last weekend I was beyond lucky enough to attend a Newborn workshop with Blossom Workshops in Venice, Florida. I say lucky not just cause I was happy to be there, but it was the fact that I WON the workshop in a random Instagram contest. I never win anything, NEVER. I saw the contest on their Instagram account and entered not thinking anything of it. I woke up the next day with the notification that I actually won!! I screamed in my bed and yelled at my husband that I was headed to Florida!!
I have been following these workshops hosted by Stevie Cruz Photography & Megan Ready Photography for a long time. I knew that when the time was right I really wanted to invest in their education. I have been doing newborn photography for a little over 4 years and I am pretty much all self taught, but I knew that I needed some fine tuning and just perfecting some of the little things to really make my newborn photography, a art.
Stevie and Megan really knew how to spoil us attendees with “Swag Bags”. They were full of prop vendor products like headbands, hats, wraps and layers. I was seriously in like prop heaven!! Just the swag alone we received was probably worth over $500. They also brought in 2 newborn prop vendors to do a trunk show to allow us to purchase some of their products! We also received custom cups, work books and USBs to make sure we had everything we need to get the most out of the experience.
The workshop was broken into 2 days full of lighting, posing, parent & sibling posing, and business. We got to work with so many baby models. Every single one was adorable and great to work with! Some models were definitely easier then others but it helps us out more as photographers to know that not every baby is perfect and you’re going to get one of those wide awake babies.
Every single detail of the workshop was amazing. Stevie and Megan really blew me away from the whole experience and even as a seasoned photographer, I walked away with so much knowledge. I can’t wait to apply what I learned on my next newborn!
Here are some of my favorite images from the workshop and some behind the scenes of our awesome hosts! I HIGHLY recommend anyone looking to further their education and wanting to participate in a newborn workshop to check out Blossom Workshop!!
