    I am transitioning from HS seniors and engagements as a S&B to families and newborns. I have taken 36 hours of safety classes and my background is a pediatric and NICU nurse. I am located in the US and would be so very interested in a posing class in the US.

    Thank you,

    I’m currently watching your “Baby Safety and Posing for Newborn Photographers” series and it is great! I’d highly recommend it to any photographer who wants to improve their newborn photography.

  4. Mandy says:

    I would love to attend one of your workshops in person! I’ve watched all of your CreativeLive ones! I live on a small island in Alaska and there are never any workshops that come here..Seattle would be the easiest place to get to go to one for me! I hope to see you add that location to your list!

  5. Nancy says:

    You had me from your very first Creative Live broadcast so many years ago. I have modeled so much of who I am as a photographer after not just your style of photography, but the way in which you conduct yourself and how you respect and regard each precious newborn. From your soft, delicate touch, to your knowledge and respect of baby’s needs – you have empowered me more than you’ll ever know. I will keep my eyes open for info. to come regarding your workshops. I’ve added San Francisco as a possible location for ya! I know you will love it! Fingers crossed on this end! xo

  6. Therena Carlin says:

    You have inspired me from the moment I decided to become a newborn photographer, which just happened to be at the same time your did your creativelive bootcamp 2 yeas ago! I have since bought more of your classes and anytime I need to be inspired before a session or just need a mental “top up” I watch them again. Thank you for sharing your passion and your beautiful art with the rest of the world! Perhaps one day in the future you can come to western Canada for a workshop! I can even provide the space to do it in 🙂
    Warmly, Therena

    I think that THE pressing issue is mertcis and measurement for social media. We cannot duck the ROI questions any longer. Corporations and other organizations have dived into social media with vigour. Now, we must find ways to assess the results of the social media programs. Do we measure results by conversions? By engagement? By something else? And what algorithms can we agree on.A panel on Social media mertcis and measurement would be a worthy agenda item for Mesh08.

  21. Lisa Tyter says:

    Is there anyone out there that would like to do the Sydney 2 day intensive workshop, l have paid the deposit and have a spot but life has taken a twisty turn and cannot go to the workshop. Feel free to email if you would like this spot.
