Before I tell you all about this life-changing program, let's talk about who this is really for ...
Are you tired of feeling like this?
''I have the dreams, I have the passion and I have the visions but I don't have the roadmap and tools!''
''I want to start my business but I don't have lots of money for a studio, props, clothing and expensive equipment.''
''One minute I feel I’m doing ok the next I feel I’m out of my depth! I really need to invest in education, as I’m all self taught! Posing, lighting.... a bit of everything!''
''How to make my workflow quick and easy? My session is 3-4 hours. I struggle with posing the baby naturall yet, flattering way, and transitioning smoothly and swiftly from one pose to the next.''
''My biggest challenge is lighting and shooting angles. I always struggle with getting my highlights and shadows just right.''
''My editing is taking so long! I cannot nail consistency on skin tones and the clean whites on my photos.''
''I want to change my style to the minimalist and timeless white but I don't know where to start. I have so many fears and self doubt.''
''How can I find my own style and stand out from the rest? I am following many photographers but I don't know how to create my own style that I love.''
''It's easy to just buy online courses but it's so hard to follow through. I don't have clarity, there’s no accountability and next steps to follow. Help!''

My program is different. My team and I will be your accountability partners. We'll support you through every step of the program to make sure you achieve the results you desire.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
You'll be given access to one module per week (except for the implementation weeks) - so that you have ample time to dive into the lessons and execute that portion of the training BEFORE moving on the next. We do this to protect your time, attention and focus while sparing you from the intensive overwhelm that stops most would-be photographers in their tracks.
Lighting, Camera Settings & Angles
I believe learning to see the light, and more importantly, understanding it is the first critical step in your photography journey.
The best place to start improving your lighting skill is by learning the most basic form, which is natural light.
Seeing the quality of light for a given scene, and opening my eyes in new ways to create my style in any genres.
I believe if you master the skill of working with natural light, this knowledge can be applied to any genres or style of your photography.
Once you master the skill of natural light, you'll be able to see how lighting impacts on your style. You can use the light that you love to create your unique style and bring your vision to life.
Studio Set Up
Whatever you are planning to start your studio or want to improve your studio. This module will help you learn creating a versatile yet simplified professional studio setup, and how to make a home-based studio work.
In the module we focus on the essential needs of any size studio setup. You will learn the basics of getting your studio up and running or improving your shooting spaces.
Topics include lighting sources, essential gear and props, interior design ideas and other considerations that can help you sell!
The best part about this module is learning you don’t need to spend a lot of money! See how my-savvy choices in your studio can put you on the path to success.

This program is the fruit of 13 years' experience in my newborn and family photography career.
I built my 6 figure photography business from the ground up, while being the mum of two little boys.
But it wasn't that long ago that I was burnt out by working long hours. I hardly had any time to spend with my family.
Fast forward through many successes, failures and lessons learnt over the last 13 years, and you see the business I have today.
I've achieved success, and the lifestyle I desired. I'm also making an impact and helping change other people's lives as a motivational speaker and photographer educator.
I created my coaching and training programs, which give you a streamlined business framework, modern marketing techniques, and support to develop a mindset for success.
I want to empower you to follow your dreams, support you to overcome your limiting beliefs, discover your true potential, and build a profitable business with passion and compassion, so you can live the life you love!
Should you choose to accept my invitation, I personally guarantee that these next 12 weeks will be completely life-changing for you and your business.
I look forward to meeting you personally inside the Timeless Newborn Mastery Program.
