“in a metal bullet, traveling 500mph, 7 miles up.” ~Julia Kelleher- HUDSON, MA. BABY PHOTOGRAPHY
Massachusetts Maternity, Newborn & Child Photography
Photography has always been an interest of mine. I love capturing & viewing all sorts of photographic images. Most recently, with the births of my second & third babies, I discovered the art of infant portraiture. I immediately became obsessed! And so, my journey as a newborn photographer began.
Since 2012, I’ve spent countless hours searching google, attending online & in-person workshops as well as joining and learning from several social media groups. Now, I’m developing my own personal style of newborn portraiture. A style that steals little bits & pieces from many portrait artists around the globe. People whose work absolutely makes my heart scream! People who inspire me to the point of mental exhaustion. Many nationally/internationally awarded & just truly phenomenal individuals who, in the photography business, have grown quite a bit in popularity. Lucky for us up and comer’s, some are instructing artists how they work and how to follow in their artistic & business models.
Recently, I had the opportunity to go to my old home in Dallas, Texas to study under one of these artists.
Sharing success with other individuals is a huge sacrifice when you're leaving your husband, four-year old child and beloved pug, to teach over two thousand miles away from home.
That's exactly what Julia Kelleher did when she flew to Texas and taught a group of nearly thirty women including myself, all she could about newborn portraiture, safety and business- for an entire week.
Julia is a Master Photographic Craftsman certified by the American Association of Professional Photographers. Her work with newborns, infants and their families inspires me greatly. Her composition and use of negative space are right up my alley. She utilizes muted earth tones and organic materials in her portrait sessions, which I love. Always dressing her babies in the softest linens, mohair bonnets and daintiest hair pieces.
Julia’s insight on her business model allows other portrait artists the ability to provide for their families. As artists, we photographers are typically not salesmen and it's never personally been my intention to get the most monetary value that I possibly can for my work but I do need to survive. Julia's business training has allowed me to streamline my business. It’s now possible for me to fulfill my dream of providing newborn portrait art as a service without starving my children. YAY!
