Newborn Workshop with Nicole Smith Photography

About two years ago I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Ontario to attend a newborn workshop with Nicole Smith Photography. It was a little bit of a last minute trip for me as someone was unable to attend and had to sell their seat. This was my first time away from my daughter and although it was sad to leave her, I was super ecstatic to be able to learn from the best! I have to admit I was a little starstruck as Nicole is quite the celebrity in the newborn photography world. Watching one of the greats in action was incredible - Nicole is truly the baby whisperer. To make an incredible weekend even better, the workshop was hosted by Sandra Hill! We were all in awe of 'Sandra's Wood Floor' *swoon*. 

The workshop was about a day and a half, and it went by way too fast! I loved seeing firsthand how Nicole works her magic. The pose I was most excited about was the 'froggy'. The safety of each baby is obviously of utmost importance, and it was great to learn some tips and tricks to make sure babies are super secure in this pose. I am excited to use all of these new tips and tricks! 

I am a studio light photographer, but it was great to learn more about natural light. I definitely have new appreciation for natural light photographers, and wanted to come home and kiss my consistent light (not literally of course).  

The little newborns that we had the privilege of photographing were just amazing! Every single baby had the most amazing hair! Here are some of the cuties we were able to photograph (posed and styled by Nicole Smith, photographed and edited by me):
