Newborn Photography Mentoring & Training

I love the work I do so much that several years ago I also ventured into newborn photography mentoring and training. So when I’m not in my photography studio here in Dorset photographing my clients, I’m usually working as a professional newborn photography trainer.

I teach aspiring newborn photographers all aspects of the newborn photography industry. They learn everything that they need to know to develop a successful newborn photography business of their own. I offer private one-to-one training at my studio in Poole, Dorset.

I am also one-third of the renowned Baby Whisperer Academy, working in conjunction with two highly acclaimed newborn photographers; Damian McGillicuddy, Olympus’ Principal Photographer and the only Grand Master photographer in the world, and “Celebrity Baby Whisperer”, Jocelyn Conway. Together we host regular workshops for limited numbers of photographers to teach the art of newborn photography. 

Please contact me if you would like to know more about my photography mentoring services.


Victoria Mackenzie: “I have done both a 2-2-1 and 1-2-1 with Karen and both have been fantastic. She really sets out to teach you the specific areas you want to concentrate on and does so with a relaxed and professional manner. The information I have taken from both courses has been invaluable and I have gone home feeling newly inspired. I cannot recommend Karen enough.”

Emily Bishop: “I can honestly say that I learnt so much in one day. Karen took me through every step from setting up my camera, adjusting lighting, getting the baby to sleep and safety when posing. Karen talked about so many different experiences you could come up against with newborns and I really felt like she was trying to give me as much knowledge as she could in the short time we had. It has been an amazing experience; one that I will never forget and I have come away feeling so positive and excited for the future.”
