1:1 Newborn Photography Mentoring

$1275.00 (one on one mentoring)

Spend the day with Paula Swift as she preps for a newborn session, shows you posing, lighting and lets you pose and photograph the newborn right along side her. You will have access to her props and studio during this time. We will end the day with downloading and editing the images you captured. This perfect for any photographer who wants a hands-on personal guidance from a professional photographer who has been photographing newborns for 15 years and is a professional photography teacher. This is also perfect for a more advance posing than the workshop offers or to build your personal newborn photography portfolio.

Must book 4-6 weeks in advance.
Contact paula@paulaswift.com to register.

  • The day will start at 9:30am and will end anywhere from 4:30pm or later. All depends on the new baby we photograph.
  • Lunch and snacks are included in your mentoring.
  • Dates are booked on a first come basis and due to my shooting schedule is limited to 1 mentoring session every 4-6 weeks.
  • $500 non-refundable retainer due upon registering. The remainder will be due 3 weeks before mentoring date.
  • No mileage restriction on mentoring, the only restriction is that you know how to use your DSLR camera. You will be able to use Paula’s studio lighting and transmitters to fire her lights. She will help you figure out what type of lighting might be best for your photography business as well.
  • Newborn baby will be photo released for you to use for your website and portfolio.

If you are from out of town, there is a Fairfield Inn by Marriott one block away from the studio.

Workshop Reviews

This class was perfect for me. Exactly what I needed to get more insight into newborn photography. Just awesome!!!!

“OMG! it was amazing! I loved it! Paula you are so pleasant and knowledgeable. The class was fun, interesting and loved the fact you gave us the opportunity to practice and to see how you work. Thank you so much for sharing so many tips! I am going back for more!”

“Fantastic class!! I’m about to dive in and edit up the photos I took…thanks so much for the knowledge and experience you shared!

Awesome class, I highly suggest going. I attended the class last fall and had a blast.

“What I learned in person with Paula, I could of never gotten from watching an online video. Take her class!”

“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.”

“Paula’s Family and Children Storytelling class was a wonderful day well spent. Paula began the morning by sharing her story and background, explaining her approach to storytelling photography, and offering clear guidance regarding exposure settings, posing, and tips for success. The day flowed smoothly and there was time for introductions and informal chatting among the participants. The small class size was perfect, and before we knew it, we were heading out to the Sudbury Grist Mill for the scheduled afternoon shoots. Paula has a wonderful way with clients, parents and kids alike, and continued her relaxed instructional style throughout the afternoon, ensuring that all participants had an opportunity to photograph each family in each moment, and even giving us a chance to “art direct” the sessions toward the end. It was an engaging, thoroughly educational, and fun day! And I was thrilled with the images I captured. This class will help you take your photography — whether as a hobbyist or aspiring professional, to the next level.”

“Thank you so much for providing this workshop.  It was fun and educational.  I really enjoyed the session.  You are a wonderful instructor in your art.  I hope to sign up for another workshop of yours.”

I spent the day in Paula’s newborn session class. It was so informative! She was so easy to talk with and answered everyone’s questions with ease. Each student was able to take their turn in photographing the models. I would highly recommend it if you are interested in learning to photograph newborns.

“I took Paula’s newborn photography class and I am so happy with what I learned from her class. Her patience and way with clients is phenomenal! I highly recommend her!”

I just want to send Paula a huge thank you for an amazing newborn photography class !!! It was so informative and fun! I can’t wait to take more classes with Paula!

“Paula was an excellent instructor!  And she is clearly an excellent photographer … to be able to complete 2 newborn sessions – with siblings – and cover all the course material in the allotted time was simply amazing.  She was calm, clear and relaxed, which made the day both informative and fun.  Highly recommend!”

Paula was extremely well-prepared, yet maintained a relaxed environment.  She brought in two families in order to give us a hands-on experience with lighting and posing.
