    "Remembering back upon my newbie photographer days this would have been something I would have loved to have been able to have read and thought "Oh wow that's how you do that?" - Melissa

    "I thought it was informative, nice to see how others go about things." - Becky

    "The course is laid out very well, and cover all aspects of newborn photography, from poses to business. It is an in-depth look at newborn photography. What to expect, what your clients can expect, and lessons learned along the way. It was easy to follow, also very clean and simple. It was far more detailed than I expected it to be. It is also a good collection of information that people at varying levels can use. It would be great for beginning newborn photographers, as well as established ones that are looking to make changes to improve their business practices." - Stephanie

    "It's great! It's informative, detailed and flows together. Nicely done and well put together!" - Katie
