Craft like a Mother: Newborn/Baby Photography Workshop

8 July, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

| See below for prices

Are you a Mum of a baby or young toddler? Do you struggle to find engaging activities to attend with your baby that are enjoyable for you as well as Bub?

Craft like a Mother is a series of low cost, baby friendly workshops, aimed at Mum’s with newborn up to toddler aged children. These workshops are for any ladies who would like to explore the transition to Motherhood in a creative setting, and meet some like-minded people along the way.

There will be an assistant to help with Bub if needed and a playpen with toys for the more active little ones. You are also welcome to attend without your baby if you are able to.

Learn how to take beautiful pictures of your babies in your home using basic equipment and camera techniques. Watch as Christina Papadimitriou demonstrates how to set up an area to photograph your baby at home and use available light to enhance your images. Time will be set aside to capture images of your own baby with Christina’s assistance. Christina is a mother, photographer, and qualified teacher.

What to bring:

  • A DSLR camera and memory card. Note: If you do not own a DSLR camera we can provide one for you, however please provide your own SD card.
  • A couple of props you would like included in your photos e.g. teddy bears
  • 1 white sheet and 2 towels
  • A blanket you want you baby to be photographed on

Cost includes morning tea and digital copies of any images you would like to take home with you.
Workshop registration and payment is required in advance of attendance. This secures your place.
