My Day with the Incredible Kelley Ryden & Tracy Raver! – Newborn Baby Posing Workshop.

Newborn Baby Photography – Newborns by Nicola | Scotland’s Specialist Newborn Photographer – Newborn Baby Photographer to Broughty Ferry, Dundee, Angus, Tayside, Perth & Aberdeen

 On Saturday 21st I woke up in the Welsh Valleys to beautiful Sunshine, I was also super tired as I had barely slept a wink out of excitement for that day I was finally going to meet and receive training from the 2 ladies I have followed and idolised my whole newborn photography career.  Kelley Ryden & Tracy Raver are twin sisters from the USA, they are known around the world for their beautiful newborn artwork and for creating poses that the newborn photography industry strive to replicate.  These ladies have been constant inspiration in my 5 years in the newborn industry so to finally receive training from them is just a dream come true.  

All of these images were created using just natural light which is very different which I think just creates a beautiful softness to the image.  I personally use studio lights in my images but I am certainly going to try use more natural light as the results are just worth it.  I have been posing babies for 5 years now but I always believe there is room for improvement in everything I do and to create the very best images investing in training by the best is so important.  Kelley & Tracy have shown me how to refine my posing, how to style a shot and use the available light to amazing effect.  I can’t wait to put everything I have learned into action.

Here is a slideshow of just some of the images created.  All of these were posed & styled by Kelley & Tracy and were shot by myself.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE how they have turned out.   If you are due a baby in the next week or two or your little one is just a day or two old please get in touch as I am looking for a few newborn models to practise these new techniques with.  You will receive the session free of charge (usually £79) and receive a complimentary desk frame of my favourite image.  Please email nicola@newbornsbynicola.com.
