Once a dynamic photojournalist, chasing fires and news stories all over Massachusetts, Paula Swift now uses these same skills to photograph children and families.

Listen as Paula shares her experience as a photojournalist and how she implements those skills in capturing beautiful, timeless and story-telling portraits in today’s competitive photography world. You’ll start in the studio for a portion of the day and then head outdoors, weather permitting, to photograph children and or a family. Discuss how the same skills and thought processes behind photojournalism can help you capture amazing imstorytelling_portrait_photography_bookages for your clients.

“Paula was so open about her newborn photography knowledge.  What she taught in class was AMAZING!  I learned so much in this one class and can’t wait to try everything I learned how to do on my next newborn session.”

“I highly recommend this class if you really want to get a better understanding on newborn photography.  Learning how to photograph newborns using the right light and learn how to pose safely, was priceless to me.”

“I know Paula through PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and she is wonderful.  An amazingly talent portrait artist and a genuinely nice person and colleague willing to share her thoughts and ideas with others in the industry.  I recently attended a newborn workshop Paula held in her Sudbury, MA studio and it was fantastic, offering a little something for everyone where ever you are in your journey.  If you’re looking to get into a new genre or just need some confirmation that you’re on the right track I recommend attending a workshop with Paula Swift.”
