This video series has helped me so much! It’s very helpful to see the light placement and camera angles along with all the other valuable information… but the BIG a-ha moment for me was the teaching on proper exposure. I was underexposing too much because I was afraid of blowing highlights. Then, I would spend hours in Photoshop trying to get rid of the awful red skin tones. I would re-edit over and over and still not be happy. Today I paid close attention to exposure and I have beautiful images SOOOO that I can’t wait to edit. Thanks so much, Kelly! Highly recommend this video series!
Dear Kelly! There are not enough words to thank you for all the educational things you give and keep giving us. I grew up dramatically with your learning tutorials. This one saved my life today, I really was enjoying taking pictures of families. Felt so much confident! More than that my clients had a really good time and fun time today, and loved the pictures I showed them on my camera. Thank you so much! Can you, please, make one more class for shooting extended/big families with grandparents? That would be really helpful:)
I have been learning from Kelly Brown’s Newborn Posing education since 2016. It started with Creative Live, Baby Summits and now a complete set of Newborn Posing tutorials… I am also registered for 2020 Workshop in Brisbane! I run a successful Newborn Photography business in Sydney Australia and can 100% thank Kelly and her team for sharing so much of her business knowledge. From the most important knowledge of Safety for Newborns all the way through posing, lighting and camera techniques. Kelly is clear and easy to watch and learn from and her personality endearing. We are so grateful you took on this massive adventure in teaching the world of newborn photographers! Thank you x
If i didnt leave a review for this course it would be an injustice for Kelly’s labour. This course gave me a chance to know my camera. even i had a basic photography course, i learned real info here with Kelly. Now i feel moore confident for my shots. ı also want to thank Kelly for explaining every details with a big teaching love. PS Sorry for my lack of english. but im sure u got it.
Kelly these videos are extremely informative and really helpful.I have one request and that is that you would do a video using a Jinbei sometime in the future. I know you have changed to Godox, but there are many of us that have purchased the Jenbei and are not in a financial position to change our lighting system.Thank you so much for the wonderful videos which are reasonably priced.
This is an amazing course. I love the clarity of Kelly’s explanations, her natural way of teaching, and the generosity of her advices. Kelly shares all her knowledge and I’m learning a lot of photography. I really recommend this course, it is pure magic. I’m very grateful, and for the price, it is a gift.
Kelly, thank you very much for this live session. Bonus points for choosing such an unsettling baby 😉 I find it very helpful that you stressed out again that the patience is the key. I just repeat it to myself during the sessions and this small truth makes wonders. It’s also useful to see how you act during the shooting and that you’re not a robot with a poker face on, but that you get stressed a bit too, and how you cope with that. Hope the wine tasted afterwords . 😉 Kind regards, beautiful life images
Once again Kelly you have offered us amazing instruction for newborns, young children and families. I frequently watch and rewatch your classes working to perfect my photography. Not only are your teaching techniques easy to follow, but your compassion and integrity as you honor your subjects’ personality and needs has made a lasting impression on me. Thank you again.

Brilliant course. Can’t rate it highly enough. Everybody, no matter what type of photographer you are or aspire to be should watch this course. It has given my photography a whole new meaning and purpose. Can’t wait to start putting it ALL into action. Thankyou so much Ryan and Kelly for sharing your amazing knowledge.
Amazing! I finally had the opportunity to sit down and watch the entire LIVE session, and – as always – I learned so much! I have purchased/watched almost all of the classes on your site, as well as everything that you had shot with CreativeLive, and it has truly changed the way I shoot, deal with clients, work with newborns, and set up sessions. Thank you SO MUCH for providing so much detailed, safe, and “real” information!
Thank you for posting the finished photos! So beautifully “simple!” Being prepared and patience seems to be the key. These videos were really helpful for me to see how you interacted with the mother and child. I will watch them again, especially before a sitting baby session. I appreciate you sharing your work and encouraging so many to do quality work.
I have been purchasing and watching multiple lighting and exposure workshops religiously just trying to learn to “see the lighting” and understand my histogram beyond the basic “shadows-midtines-highlights” concept. I have to say, Ryan’s explanation of histogram and exposure did in 20 minutes what multi-day workshops and several books couldn’t do for me. In a conscise and layman’s terms Ryan explains what exactly you are looking for in your histogram, what proper exposure looks like specifically for skin tones, and what you want your shadows to look like. If I could give him and Kelly a huge hug in person for this incredible course, I would. Thank you, thank you, thank you
Amazing. This is the first tutorial I’ve watched from Kelly and as a new photographer I’m so glad I have. I feel like I’ve and a one on one workshop! The information and detail here is amazing, I’ve learned so so much. It happens to be international women’s day as I write this, and what an inspirational woman Kelly is. Thank you for sharing you passion and skill with us.
This course was brilliant. I loved how Ryan explained the histogram, I came away with a much thorough understanding than I had previously. And also pushing the histogram to shadows, giving more depth, mystery to the subject. I find myself exploring this more and more in different situations. Thank you Ryan and thank you Kelly for introducing Ryan to us.
