Your opportunity to join me in a newborn photoshoot

“When you learn, teach, when you get, give.” ~Maya Angelou

It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly four years since I began this little journey of photographing newborns. What began as just a personal interest and hobby has certainly come a long way and I’ve learned so much about photography and newborns over the last few years. As I’ve shared my work and begun my business I’ve gradually had people not only interested in having their babies photographed but there have been many interested in seeing what goes into photographing a newborn. It’s definitely not as easy as it may look and takes a great deal of patience and time to work with the little ones. Over the last few years more and more people are beginning to contact me to ask for tips, ask if they can shadow or intern, and I’ve even been stopped a few times by strangers while out and about asking about opportunities to be present during a newborn session. So offering opportunities to let others join me during a session has been on my mind the past year or more but as many of you know life has been incredibly busy…but finally, I’ve begun to coordinate a last minute opportunity for those of you who’d like to join me in a newborn shoot and have a bit of fun observing and being a part of a session.

Of course there’s more to it than me looking forward to sharing my knowledge…I have a desire to give…once again. Yes, a bit of a different giving opportunity I have for you all. If you’ve been following along on my blog you may have heard that my niece who is just 2 years old was recently diagnosed with leukemia. She’s been in the hospital for about three weeks of the past month and her family is expected to be challenged as she fights leukemia. In addition to the hardship leukemia places upon her family they’ve recently experienced troubles with both of their vehicles. They’re also close to halfway through with a second pregnancy. We’ve established a fundraiser for my niece’s family that ends THIS Friday, December 16th at midnight.

So here’s your opportunity to join me in a newborn photoshoot this Saturday morning at 9am at a local park outdoors in the Orlando area. Before I share the details I must first introduce you to two incredibly adorable babies that will be present for the photo session.

If you’re interested in this opportunity here’s all you have to do…

  • Visit my niece Raven’s fundraising page and make a donation. I won’t set a minimum…I know it’s the holidays…at this rate knowing you have a giving heart to help my niece is enough for me to extend this opportunity to you.
  • Email me (amanda [at] or just use the contact button on my blog or web site) as soon as you make a donation and let me know you want to join me for the photo session. Again, it’ll be 9am this Saturday, December 17th, 2011 at a local park in Orlando. I’ll send you specific details as soon as I receive your email. I anticipate the session to last 1-2 hours but the exact duration will depend upon the cooperation of the two adorable little ones I’ll be photographing.

Please note that only a limited number of people will be able to join us so the first to donate and email will be the first accepted to join me. I will be sure to let you all know when we’ve reached capacity. If you join me during the session you will be able to observe, participate, and take photos during the session. Of course you’ll also have the opportunity to ask me questions and hopefully along the way I can help share a few tips with those of you interested in learning a bit more about working with newborns and/or photography.

Yes, I’ve learned a lot…now it’s time to share a bit of my knowledge…and in the process it’ll mean the world to me if more of you can help me give to help my sweet niece Raven and her family as they have been so challenged with the news that she now has leukemia.
