"I've been an online gallery, digital-focused photographer for years, always struggling to upsell people to wall art or albums. My average digital package sale was about £300.

Seona's training was inspiring, very easy to relate to, and within a couple of hours, she had identified my self-limiting barriers about being too salesy or charging too much, taught me how to remove them, and put everything I was afraid to do into an easily actionable task list. She was so open and honest about her approach, I came away thinking that not only would I be able to do this, but I'd be stupid not to! 

Sure enough, I put it into practice on my very next family studio session, made a £1100 sale without feeling like I was selling, and ultimately, had two very happy clients and a very happy photographer."


Are you trying to perfect the art of professional newborn photography as you start or grow your business but the newborn poses you’ve been trying out…well you just aren’t loving them. Super long session wide awake babies, just aren’t filling you with confidence that it could be something you can achieve.

How can you include beautiful newborn photography in your offering when these session are not really for you, not enjoyable and your aren’t capturing images that you LOVE;

The posing feels awkward

You need so many baskets and buckets but in reality you just aren’t keen on them. You find yourself thinking maybe just one more posing prop will make a difference.

You’ve boxes and boxes full of tie backs in every colour, pretty blankets and fluffy bear outfits galore but none of that is making ant difference to how you feel.

…and not to mention some sessions are taking 2-4 hours.
You just aren’t loving it at all, but how else can you offer beautiful newborn photography that you and the parents will love?

Have you considered real authentic, natural, baby led newborn photography?

What if I told you that I can show you how to deliver a beautiful newborn session, with confidence, focusing on baby, not the props, and in less time that you might think?


Let's make that a reality!

I have developed my own natural newborn posing flow for this training workshop. It is more than tried and tested - I use this process every day in my own newborn sessions and I’m going to show you the exact steps to take so you too can enjoy natural baby led newborn sessions.

Newborns can be awake or asleep or awake, parents love how beautifully natural it is and I love how the session flows so well for all of us!

Happy Baby, Happy Parents, Happy Photographer!

My natural light studio is in the westend of Glasgow, just minutes from Glasgow city centre, surrounded with so much to see and do if you decided to make afew days of it. Upon booking I will send over my mini Glasgow guide with hotel locations, restaurants and more if you fancy taking in a bit of culture whilst you are here!

It is predominantly natural light, but should there be not much of that around some of the session may take place with studio flash.

"I didn't know how to move into artwork sales without seeming salesy - completely the opposite to my friendly, warm and welcoming brand. Seona's training helped to shift some internal blocks I had about the value of my work and showed me that in no way does wall art sales need to be pushy. Quite the opposite - it can be an extension of my usual helpful self.

The training was thorough, well paced and full of bags of helpful information to launch me successfully into this next chapter of my business. Seona's has a calm and reassuring manner showed me that in no way did I need to be worried at all about moving to an IPS model. I'm just about to deliver my first batch of wall art to a client, and I couldn't be happier!"

About Me

I’m a maternity, newborn and family photographer and I’m passionate about helping other photographers realise and reach their potential. With almost 15 years experience of running successful photography businesses, I want to show you how to photograph newborns in a natural baby led style which is perfect for newborn photography…and parents love this natural, unfussy style style.

Have I always photographed newborns this way? No, I haven’t! When I first started shooting newborn sessions for clients I felt had to follow the over posed, baby drowning in props and awkward poses style… I’ve learned A LOT along the way as I started to shoot more of what I loved, I found my clients loved it too…WIN-WIN! The more I focused just on baby, the more I really started to love newborn sessions and the authenticity of them, as opposed to posed newborn sessions. In addition I found so many benefits of natural newborn photography ….and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you.


You can add yourself to the waitlist and stay in the loop or if you are ready to level up your newborn offering to something that parents…and YOU….will LOVE…book your training today!

Lets arrange that discovery call today and see if we are a good fit!
