Malia B Photography » Phoenix Arizona Newborn , Baby and Maternity Photographer

Mentoring with Malia B Photography

Located in the gorgeous desert of Phoenix, Arizona I offer personal mentoring sessions for passionate photographers who are ready for a shift in their newborn and or maternity photography.  Spend a day 1:1 with me or in a small group setting and learn the in’s and out’s, set goals, dream, laugh and walk away with knowledge that will lead you into the next level of your photography journey. Each mentoring session is based upon the needs and goals of the attendee and is customized to fit you. Whether we go over natural lighting or studio lighting, best camera settings, achieving that perfect straight out of camera image,  how to talk to clients and calm newborns, posing or post processing, it’s up to you. We’ll cover newborn and or maternity photography.

Dates and locations are on a needed basis and limited per month. Please use the contact tab to connect with me if you are interested in setting up a mentoring session! Email: 

“I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for yesterday, you really were so patient and kind, I felt like I could ask you anything. You totally filled in all the gaps for me and I am excited to get back to the UK to put it all into practice.  It was so great to meet you in person, you are even better than I imagined and I thought you were pretty cool already!”- Erin Freeman, UK

Somethings to know:

We’ll be shooting with studio lighting for newborns and if you choose to add on  maternity, natural lighting.  There will be  models provided for the lessons covered and this is a hands-on experience.  Watching a pose or positioning is great but doing it yourself and getting the experiences is the best learning tool.

A prime lens such as a 50mm or 35mm is suggested.   To try your hand at some newborn macro photography, you can bring or rent a 60mm, 100mm or macro filters work too.  For maternity photography lenses I suggest  50mm, 85mm, 135mm, or 70-200mm.  Feel free to rent one of those lenses if you do not have one.  If your mentoring session consist of editing techniques I edit using Photoshop CS5.  These mentoring sessions are not for those photographers who already teach or plan to teach workshops or mentoring sessions themselves within 12 months of a scheduled mentoring date.  A retainer of $300  and a signed contract is due to reserve your mentor spot with me, the balance is due one month prior to your scheduled date. The retainer fee is NON-REFUNDABLE for any reason. The reservation process is all done online and  is payable by Paypal  along with a contract that includes a non-compete.
