Newborn Photography


Welcome and thank you for your interest in newborn photography training at The Little Green Studio!

Our newborn photography training is for everyone; from beginners who need to learn everything (starting with the safety aspects of newborn photoshoots) to professionals who need to brush up on their posing or lighting skills.

We offer 1-2-1 mentoring so that the day is tailored to your strengths and weaknesses. You will have my undivided attention showing you exactly how to achieve poses, correctly light your images and the angles you should be photographing from as you shoot alongside me.

The Little Green Studio is located in Banbridge town, just 30 minutes from Belfast and only 5 minutes walk from the local bus stop. It is fully customised for newborn sessions with professional wall mounted backdrops for parent portraits, posing beanbag with frame, professional studio lighting and all blankets, wraps, posing aids and other props needed.

We are also the Winner of Best Newborn Photographer Ireland 2019 so you are in the best hands possible!

What do I need to bring? 

Your DSLR camera, lens (35mm & 50mm or 24-70mm as well as 105mm Macro are my recommended lenses for newborn photography). Also, a notebook and pen are very handy for keeping notes! We also advise that you dress in light, comfortable clothing.

Is there anything else included?

You will be provided with a guide of what I discuss on the day including my posing workflow, what you need to start as a newborn photographer, list of my entire kit, safety info, tips & tricks, list of newborn prop suppliers and a certificate of completion. You can also email me any questions for ongoing support. Lunch, coffee & other refreshments are also included!
