February 23, 2020

This year WPPI has partnered up with Kelly Brown to bring you The Baby Summit. Kelly founded The Baby Summit in 2015 and has brought together photographers from all over the world to learn from the best educators. 

This amazing experience is one intense day of learning from 4 of the best presenters that Kelly has personally hand selected for WPPI 2020. 



Wrapping, Posing and Transitional Flow

Sandra Hill

Sandra will be demonstrating her favorite wrapping technique for the fussy baby, the “potato sack” pose. Learn how to safely and effectively wrap a baby in this pose using only wraps. Sandra will be showing how to get the most setups from this one wrap style for a large beautiful gallery. Demonstration will include wrapping baby safely, dealing with fussy babies, lighting, angles, and transitioning from potato sack into the crate, flokati, bucket pose and ending with the relaxed arms up pose.

The Art of Maternity Portraits

Lola Melani

During this class, Lola will demonstrate how to capture and create the perfect lighting while using simple studio setups to achieve stunning maternity portraits.

Editing Newborn Photos in Photoshop

This class will teach you how to produce a great straight-out-of-camera newborn image and the process to edit those images by hand. Kristen will go over the steps of editing as well as creating your own action with your very own steps. She will also cover batch processing to speed up your newborn editing workflow.
