Information – Newborn Posing Workshops

Rebecca Connolly Photography offers studio lighting newborn photography workshops


Join AIPP Silver award winning photographer, Rebecca Connolly, for her Small Group Mentoring Class for newborn photographers. The Class will work through each stage of the newborn photography shoot, including set-up, soothing, posing transitions, prop selection, styling and post-processing. You will receive hands-on assistance to perfect your SOOC image, including camera settings, white balance adjustments, studio lighting choices and shooting angles. Part of the day will be dedicated to discussing Rebecca’s successful business strategies, including marketing, pricing and branding, to assist you in turning your business into a profitable photographic studio.
Class sizes are limited to between 4 to 6 attendees as Rebecca strongly believes in providing an intimate learning experience to ensure one-on-one time with each attendee. The Sydney Workshop classes are conducted in Rebecca’s home studio – providing attendees with a unique insight into Rebecca’s shooting space and the actual set-ups she uses for her client sessions.

On-Going Support

After the workshop class, attendees will also be invited to join a private facebook group with other past attendees, to provide on-going learning and support in your photography journey. Rebecca is very active in this group, posting tips and tricks and image critiques. You will also have access to Rebecca’s personal photoshop actions and videos tutorials, including her wrapping videos and skin tone editing tutorial:

You explained the principals of fixing the skin tone and that can be applied to any skin tone problems, not just newborns! I love the way you teach and explain things, I love this video and I love your Australian accent” ~ Monika Wilimczyk, New York City Workshop Class

“Just want to say your actions are bloody amazing – your reduce mag and purple are the best I have ever used.  And the rosy cheeks – awesome. Yes I’m an action junkie! And your gold vignette was made for me! I guess maybe because I’m using them in conjunction with your skin editing curves layer video it all works wonders! Thank you!” ~ Bec Thomas, Adelaide Workshop Class

Reviews from Previous Students:

I learnt exactly what I needed from the workshop, the lighting was explained very well, and easy steps were given to ensure that we understood what was happening and soaked up everything that was being taught. In regards to recomending friends, I will definitely, Rebecca was very professional, helpful, opened her studio and home to other photographers hoping that they take home a lot from her work shop – which I think other photographers should experience.  ~  Sharyn Safi

Studio lighting was most certainly thoroughly covered, including fill light and reflectors which were my major concerns. I also didn’t expect to learn as much about the marketing/pricing side, which in my side of the photography industry there is little information, let alone discussion between photographers. This certainly gave me confidence in my pricing structures and the market I aim towards. I would recommend it to other newborn photographers or anyone else looking at studio lighting.  ~  Suz Worsley-Deacon

The Mentoring Cass has helped me improve the quality of my images. the different poses as well. I really enjoyed watching you capture 4-5 different images from the 1 pose, that was one thing I struggled with.  ~  Amanie Kalache

I learnt everything I hoped plus extra. The details about products and the usb with the contract were completely unexpected and a great extra.  ~  Joie Upton
