One Day Newborn Workshop

November 8th, 2019 


Friday, November 8th 2019
Start 9:30 am - Finish 4pm

Aven Willow Portrait Studios

1115 S. 300 W. - Orem, Utah 84058

Facebook LIVE tickets are also available.

Any photographer that has an interest in improving their newborn photography or looking at starting a career in newborn photography. A thorough understanding of using your camera in manual mode is essential.

*Only 8 seats available for in-person workshop.

*Interactive online seats are available for students wishing to attend who live outside of Utah or who can not attend on the workshop date but who would like to own all of the videos, via Facebook LIVE. Online seats will have an interactive live q&a with Jodie during the workshop.


No problem! We're doing Facebook LIVE during the workshop so all of the videos, including all of the full editing videos, will be available in the VIP group page for watching and re-watching whenever you want! We have discovered that this is the BEST way for learning, instead of attending a workshop once and having to try to remember everything you learned. So if someone can't make the live version then they still get everything recorded. It's going to be an awesome addition to the workshops!

All you need to bring is your camera and an appropriate lens. A 35mm or 50mm (or equivalent) is best. If you have a zoom make sure it covers the 35mm - 50mm focal length range and that it can stop down to f2.8. Also, bring a notepad to take notes and you are welcome to take videos on your phone or iPad.



If you are unsure about anything, or have a question about the workshop before booking your spot.

"As a student of photography I've presently been fascinated with methods and mannerisms meant for drawing out the best from a soul before the lens. Aven Willow Portraits has mastered this technique! As a professional model, my wife, Rachelle has been photographed extensively over the years, but only one other photographer has drawn so much of her beauty and essence into their images as Jodie has done. If you want to have your best self from both within and without to beam from your portraits, make an appointment for an experience at Aven Willow Portraits."
