Tag Archives: Newborn Photography Mentoring

I don’t often share my personal work or award photographs but recently I presented a class at The Portrait Masters in Palm Springs about finding my inspiration and bringing it to life. It was the first time I have presented on this topic and I absolutely loved it so thought I would share my opening video here.

Some of these images are very personal and have great meaning behind them. They will give you feelings of joy, sadness, confusion and uncomfortableness. For me my creativity has grown out of every day experiences, challenges, limitations and loss. I truly believe we need to embrace these for our creativity to flourish.

Transform your maternity photography with simplistic fine art images.

Capturing pregnancy is one of the most beautiful things to photograph! Which is why I’m so excited to share my fine art techniques during this amazing retreat with the The Milky Way – a photographer’s resource.

20 talented photographers join forces to inspire your maternity photography .
(
along with an amazing community of fellow photographers)

The videos are pre-recorded so you don’t have to “show up live” at a specific time (so it works for all time-zones and all kinds of work schedules!) – and once released.  The videos stay up on our member site until May 15th, 2018.  (and to ensure you have them for life – you can download them!)

You’ll also receive an invite to the BONUS* private Facebook group where teachers will be answering questions about their topic until May 30th, 2017.  The group will then stay open until our next retreat so you can keep receiving support and advice from your fellow students. (so long as it remains a positive, drama-free zone!)

Teacher videos will range from 30-65 minutes.  Some will be video footage of the instructor in action showing specific posing and lighting techniques, while other topics will be presented in a slideshow or screenshare format.

For a full rundown of this amazing online event you can visit The Milky Way Website.

The past 12 days have been nothing short of incredible!!! I’ve had so much fun here in London at my Newborn Photography Workshops! 7 full days of teaching, 9 babies photographed and 1 night spent with my English family in Widnes

I’m not sure I would have got through it without the help from my good friend and travel companion Garrett and my amazing host Russ Jackson Photography – I’m beyond grateful to you both.

The long flight back to Australia starts in a couple of hours and I’m pretty sure I’ll sleep the entire way.

Thank you to every newborn photographer that attended my classes, getting to know you has been an absolute privilege and if you’re waiting on a response to an email I promise to get back to you very soon. Kelly x

2015.

Today I photographed my last newborn shoot for 2015 and what better way then to finish the year off then with these gorgeous twin boys 12 day old Noah and Ethan.

To say that 2015 has been a BIG year is a total understatement! So big I’m not even sure where to start!  It’s been filled with amazing opportunities, huge achievements both personally and professionally and a lot of life lessons.

It’s been another year of travel with me returning to CreativeLive in Seattle to teach my 3rd class – Newborn Photography Bootcamp and then onto teaching workshops and speaking at photography conferences in 8 other countries. We even stepped out on a massive limb and held our very own Photography Conference ‘The Baby Summit’ in August, which could not have been more amazing! It brought 300 beautiful photographers together to learn, be inspired and to make life long friends! Because of this we’re in the midst of making it all happen again next year in both Australia and the USA!

This year has also been filled with lots of beautiful babies in front of my camera – 86 of them!!! From client sessions, mentoring sessions and workshops. I’ve also had the privilege of judging 5 different photography competitions, and being awarded the AIPP QLD Family Photographer of the Year for the 4th year in a row and winning first place in the Newborn category at WPPI. But, my most prized trophy from 2015 is from coming 3rd overall in the AusMumpreneur of the year awards. Being nominated for this award and achieving this result still blows me away!

And then the craziest things happened! I became an AIPP Brand Ambassador and in November was announced a Canon Master, my biggest photographic achievement to date – in my eyes the absolute pinnacle!!!

I’ve received so many Blessings this past year that as I sit here looking back I still shake my head in amazement. So much gratitude!

2015 sadly also held a great loss. Loosing my Grandfather is something I will never get over. I know I will heal but never be the same. I miss our long conversations about anything and everything and will be eternally grateful for him passing on his passion for photography to me – the greatest gift of all.

So after all of this and achieving so many amazing things it’s crazy to think that 2016 is already shaping up to be an even bigger year for this little Newborn Photographer! I’ve spent the past week setting goals and making plans for the next 12 months and can’t wait to share them all with you soon! 🙂

Thank you to my ever loving, patient and supportive family & friends this year. None of this would have been possible without you and to my beautiful clients who trust me with your most precious gifts.

Wising you all a new year filled with happiness & joy and all the success you deserve.   Here’s to 2016 and making your dreams come true!

Little Pieces Photography ~ Newborn Photography by Kelly Brown

When clients come into my home studio the majority of the time they have no idea what is involved in a newborn photography session.  And I just love seeing their expressions while I’m posing and taking photos of their baby.  So I wanted to share with you a short video of some behind the scenes footage from a recent session.  You will see the attention to detail and the care that I take throughout every session.

2014 has definitely been the biggest year for Little Pieces Photography!  I have put a small video together of all the highlights and babies I have had the privilege to take photos of using my favourite slideshow company Animoto along with beautiful music from Triple Scoop Music.

It certainly was incredible year!!!  139 Newborn Babies Photographed, 23 Photographers privately mentored, 19 newborn posing classes in 12 countries to 193 photographers and 3 photography conferences!  Oh and a few new trophies along the way as well 😀  Winning the AIPP Australian Family Photographer of the Year 2014 is the biggest honour!    I have so much gratitude for the opportunities and the support I have received over the past few years – it’s unbelievable!!!  Thank you my beautiful clients that trust me with their baby photography and to all the wonderful photographers that I have met and most importantly my incredible family for putting up with me.

I wish you all a year filled with adventure, embraced opportunities and endless love and laughter.

Kelly Brown 🙂
