    Focus on Newborns
    with Kim LaFauce of KimAnne Photography

    So you love sweet, squishy babies and want to spend all day every day snuggling them too? Us too! We are going to talk about effective ways to market to expecting mommas so that you can get your books filled with all the babies your heart desires.

    We will also go over tips and tricks to safely create and capture that snugly newborn you’ve worked so hard to get. From essential gear, poses and lighting we will cover all the basics to help you get more efficient and creative in your newborn photography. Learn about how to sell your experience and featured products from images that your mommas will love. Let’s dive into ways to keep you busy and profitable in your newborn business, all the while doing what you LOVE.

    This is a PPA Continuing Education Class and you will earn a single PPA merit (with an active PPA membership) for attending.

    Due to the ongoing health concerns of the COVID-19 virus, PPI is requiring all attendees to wear a face mask which covers both the mouth and nose while attending the class to protect the safety of our attendees, speaker, models and their families.
