Ana Ramalho has photographed hundreds of newborns throughout her career, since 2013.
Ana Ramalho started her career at Photography Newborn almost 10 years ago and had the best mentors in the industry, such as Ana Brandt, Stephanie Robin, Bel Ferreira, Nina Stanis, Paloma Schell, etc.
The mentoring in newborn photography aims to improve the technique and for this the entire teaching process is personalized, so each student can focus on the areas they need to improve.
Currently, there are no safety regulations in place for the Newborn Photography industry. Anyone who owns a camera can begin photographing newborns with no training and no knowledge of the unique needs of infants.
My mentoring values and puts newborn safety at the forefront above all.
If you're just starting out in newborn photography, it is extremely important that you learn from experienced newborn professionals to ensure that all aspects of baby safety are ensured throughout the session.
IN PERSON, HANDS-ON MENTORING
Are you ready to feel more confident taking photos of newborn babies?
Investing in education like my newborn photography mentoring session can truly be a game changer for you. You will begin to approach your newborn sessions with ease, confidence, and know-how.
By attending a newborn photography class in which you get to work directly with an experienced photographer, taking pictures of actual newborns and getting direct feedback along the way, you’ll learn vastly more than you would through an online class.
As an added benefit, you’ll be left with photographs to add to your portfolio at the end of the workshop. Having a professional in the room with you while you learn will allow you to improve your technique and form through immediate feedback and encouragement.
ASSISTED PRACTICE CLASS
The first stage of mentoring is assisted practice. At this stage, the student photographer only observes the positioning and the sequence of work, directed by the mentor, analyzing all aspects.
In the second stage of mentoring, the student photographer will hold a session under the guidance of the mentor who will observe and point out what should be improved, always taking into account the student's work style.
During an entire day, you and I will hang out at your studio talking about everything related with newborn photography.
There are a few boxes you need to be able to check for this session to be a good fit and investment for you:
• Comfortable photographing in manual mode with a DSLR camera
• Have one prime lens (I recommend a 50mm or 35mm)
• Lightroom experience
• Photoshop experience
Good to go?
