Are you ready to take your newborn photography to the next level and add a new skill-set to your portfolio? If so, we invite you to consider adding a Dream Baby workshop to your 2014 calendar. Don’t take it from us – check out these reviews from one of our recent workshops:

The world of newborn photography is ever-so saturated and finding the impeccable package of fabulous posing plus amazing style and safety, can honestly be quite challenging in this competitive market. As someone that just started photography this fall, I found exactly what I needed to take my business and talents to the next level! This weekend, I had the opportunity to learn from Nicole Smith Photography and Dewdrops Photography by Amy McDaniel in an amazing workshop where both of these inspiring photographers combined and brought all of their secrets to the table to share…. If you are looking to grow as a newborn photographer and continue to keep things fresh, their workshop is where it’s at! – Captured by Clay Photography

THANK YOU AMY for such an incredible experience and learning opportunity at your Cincinnati workshop with Nicole Smith Photography!!! I loved every second of it and learned an incredible amount of knowledge! I can not wait for my next session and feel completely at ease now about so many aspects of my business. You two were amazing instructors and our host (Jackie from Cream n Cocoa Photography) was incredibly accommodating and lovely! Had a great time, made new friends, took my work to the next level and got to practice. AMAZING!!! – DULCE BABY photography
