This private 1:1 mentoring program will occur in my brand-new home studio in Lloydminster, Alberta. The course runs from 8am-5pm on a mutually agreed upon date. Lunch and snacks are included throughout the day.

I want to make your learning experience the most beneficial for you, so you can elevate your skills and abilities as a newborn photographer. We can cover styling, set-up, posing, lighting, wrapping, camera settings, safety, workflow, editing... just to name a few! We will discuss in advance what you are looking to learn from this experience, and I will customize the day towards these goals.

Hands on instruction in a mentoring session with Jen Isackson Photography will get you on the path you want, quicker than any online learning.

Are you struggling with poses and angles? Are you looking to fast track your learning and improve your images in a short amount of time?

The day will be customized towards your goals.

It isn’t just about seeing how the job is done but trying it yourself and practicing it, with a pro to guide you along the way.

I will bring in 2 newborn models for your mentoring session. With the first model I will demonstrate my beanbag workflow and with the second model, you will take the lead as I assist and advise. The images you capture during your mentoring session can be used for your portfolio. We can cover a lifestyle family portion as well as posed beanbag workflow. Unlike a workshop, mentoring is a customized experience tailored just for you. We will discuss your goals in advance to allow for this.
