Join WA’s AIPP Family Photographer of the Year Finalist and multiple award winning photographer Kristy Mannix for a day of solid learning in her specialised field of newborn photography.

Kristy has been posing and photographing newborns since 2008 and is one of Perth’s most sought after photographers for her newborn photography.

Kristy only has one attendee at a time so that you have a in depth one on one experience, you can ask as many questions as you like and watch up close to see how to safely and perfectly pose newborns.  Kristy will cover all the popular poses on the beanbag as well as floor shots.  Kristy uses studio lighting and will cover the best way to capture newborns using your studio lights as well as covering camera settings and better camera techniques, white balance for best skin tones, and correct exposure so you get it right in camera.

 After the session you can watch Kristy edit  so you can learn how to get those lovely creamy skin tones we all love.

You will need a basic understanding of Photoshop and will need a DSLR camera and preferably a 35mm, 50mm lens (or 24-70mm) and have a basic understanding of aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings, and be comfortable shooting in manual mode.  There is no need to bring a laptop unless you want to edit alongside Kristy during the post processing section.

Ongoing support via email is provided for all one on one mentoring attendees for up to 4 weeks after your mentoring session.

Lunch and refreshments are included on the day (please advise if you have any dietary requirements)

Mentoring Sessions are secured upon receipt of a $200 non refundable deposit.  Balance to be paid two weeks prior to session.

Kristy’s standard mentoring agreement is required to be signed upon booking.

Date of session to be agreed upon by both parties.  All mentoring sessions will have at least one newborn model.

To book a mentoring session with me, please contact me and we can discuss your requirements further.
