    Hi everyone.

    I get alot of likes and such for my photos, but I am aware that they are my friends and family that like them. I appreciate the honesty that the people in this forum suggest. I would really like to know if I can start charging people for my work and also how much an average shoot would cost for fmaily and new born baby photos.

    Please see below my blog.


    I first started this as my landscape travel blog but have now moved to families and new born babies.


    I think that you need to remove the woman playing the violin. Not good photos.

    Other than that I think that you are not a Fauxtog.


    Thank you for your feedback.

    I guess your right about those pics of the violinist. That was during the time when I just started knowing my camera. Bought my first DSLR in 2012.

    But besides from the old posts do you think the recent ones of the families are above average?



    I wouldn’t say you were a faux. You seem to at least have a basic grasp of coloru, tone, line & form etc. The violin ones aren’t great though.  Just keep shooting/


    Your images are sharp, white balance is good, lighting is fine etc….You would benefit from studying how to pose a newborn. I’d also take the word “crap” off your website.

    You seem to prefer a more lifestyle approach to newborns and that is great! here are a couple newborn photographers who embrace that style.




    If you are going to pose newborns in classic nude tushie up and side poses you should learn how to do it well and safely. There are tons of classes and workshops. Creative Live has a few available with Ana Brandt and Kelly Brown. The Kelly Brown Newborn Posing class is probably the most bang for your buck if you are going to shoot a lot of newborns.

    Robin Long has a series of videos for purchase on her website too.


    There are lots of $$$ in person workshops around the country too. It all depends on how much money you want to spend.




    Thank you for the feedback.

    I really appreciate it. I will take these in mind and will look more into the online newborn video training sessions.

    thak you once again.

    I will be wokring on a new website and will try and improve my newborn posing skills.


    Technically quite good.


    Stop doing the hack poses, specifically hand hearts. You’re better than I am, so keep at it.


    Halt accomplishing your compromise creates, especially palm paper hearts. You’re much better than I am, so maintain at the idea.Technically pretty very good.Thanks
