Newborn Photography Training & Mentoring

I have been a portrait photographer since 2010 and specialized in newborn and baby photography a couple of years after my second child was born in 2013. Since then it has been a constant call and my passion towards this special photography genre has been growing ever since.
To achieve where I’m standing now (numerous awards, qualifications with different Photography bodies like SWPP or The Guild of Photographers, many training sessions with famous photographers like Kelly Brown, Garry Hill or Damian McGillicuddy just to name a few) a tremendous amount of work and time has been involved, but I love every single part of it. I believe my passion towards learning and helping others would be help your journey towards newborn photography. I would love to help improving your photography and/or editing skills and sharing all the knowledge I gained over the years.
Mentoring has played a huge part in my achievements and now I’m ready to mentor you.

“Marietta explains and demonstrates each element of a newborn photoshoot very precisely and clearly. Training with Marietta really demystified the process and helped me understand how those incredibly beautiful curled up newborn images are created. I learned lots about posing, safety, wrapping, lighting and settings so it gave me all the knowledge I needed to start on my own newborn photography journey. Marietta combines her technical expertise with a warm and approachable teaching style which worked well for me and I’d highly recommend Marietta to other photographers keen to specialise in newborn photography.” – Helen Davis (lifestyle newborn photogapher)
