I am BEYOND {see what I did there} excited and humbled to announce that I have been invited as a professional speaker and educator for the largest international newborn, maternity and family photography conference, Belly Baby and Beyond Conference in Newport Beach, California in May.

I have always had a strong passion for public speaking {weird, I know!} and absolutely love being able to collaborate with and educate others in my photography field. About seven years ago I wrote a dream in my photography dream journal that included speaking at a professional conference, and I am thrilled that dream is coming true this year!

It is no secret that multiples OWN my heart, and photographing sets of twins, triplets, quads and quints is my specialty. I am delighted to be able to share some of my tips, tricks and posing with the newborn community at the event.

There are special procedures needed when photographing newborn multiples (such as having a skilled set of newborn-handling hands for each baby), and proper sanitization of camera gear/props, safe posing etc. I am also looking forward to sharing information about the importance of collaborating with other skilled newborn photographers vs. photographing multiples solo (and how to connect with others in your area), as well as special recommendations for working with preemies and micro preemies. 

In the past 12+ years I have had the joy of photographing over 40+ sets of newborn twins, 6 sets of newborn triplets, 1 set of newborn quadruplets, collaborated to photograph newborn quintuplets, and 1-year old twins, triplets, and quintuplets. Multiples… they are my JAM! 

Over the years, I have developed a great posing flow for multiples and cannot wait to be able to share this knowledge with the newborn community! It is truly such an honor to be invited to speak with some of the best photographers in the industry.
