There are a few more slots left for our Newborn Workshop in April! The 2 1/2 day workshop will be held here in Bend, OR. This workshop has something for everyone. We will be covering everything you need to know about photographing newborns. Everything from walking parents thru a pose, simple techniques to make your images unique and how to sell your images.  If you’re just starting out as a newborn photographer, you want to get into this market or you’ve been in it for awhile and need a fresh take on newborn portraiture, we’ll cover it all.

It’s one thing to photograph a newborn alone, but what about those touching, tender moments with mom and dad? Perfecting the poses and guiding parents through the process can be intimidating, but all too often these are the images that sell the most! Photographing a newborn with mom or dad truly gives them the sense of how small their child was. Just a few months later they will look at the images and not be able to believe their child fit in her arms. Epitomizing true, unconditional love, these images will touch your clients hearts and be an irresistible draw.

Julia will be teaching at PPO Convention this year on Workflow and the Business of Photography. The Convention is February 16 and 17th in Portland, OR. She will also be hosting a Newborn Workshop pre-conference on Feb 15th, and judging our state print competition Feb 16th. So get those prints in! We are looking forward to seeing everyone’s hard work.

Professional Photographers of Oregon is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education, support and promotion of professional photography in Oregon and southern Washington. Julia has been a member of PPO since 2008 and continues to see the value in being apart of such a network of photographers.



We had an amazing time at Imaging USA this year. Julia spoke on The Art & Emotion of Newborn Portraiture. There were about 1,000 attendees in the room for her class. It was encouraging to hear people’s feedback and  responses to the tips and techniques Julia uses for her studio.

Since the class we’ve received great feedback and look forward to our newborn workshop coming in April. Our workshop will be April 19-21 here in Bend, OR. If you can’t make it to the workshop, have you considered a one on one mentoring session with Julia? Check out her options on our website.
