Often I was asked to give workshops, but I wanted to do this only after proven success.
After winning several awards, international titles and prizes, I have been mentored by the world's leading newborn/maternity photographer, Ana Brandt from California.
I am now the only photographer in all of Belgium certified by Ana Brandt!
During her guidance, I went through extensive courses, took various tests, made videos of my photo shoots and developed documentation for clients. As icing on the cake, she even took the final exam in my studio to assess my teaching.
It is with pride that I am now Internationally certified to pass on, skillfully and with an emphasis on safety, my passion to other enthusiastic photographers.

Workshop Flow

In a newborn photography workshop, baby safety is paramount. We cover various wrapping techniques, camera settings, lighting, optimal angles for shooting, correct positioning of the wrapped baby, interpreting baby behavior, composition, and use of props.
Correct posing and wrapping of the baby is explained in detail, with me performing this demonstratively. Upon request, this can also be done by the student, provided sufficient experience with newborn photography and in 1-on-1 training.


The master class delves deeper into flash techniques and includes not only wrapped poses, but also poses in outfits on beds, in buckets or on the posing table.
As in the workshop, only I will wrap and position the baby.
For both workshops, it is important that you indicate what you are struggling with so that we can address it specifically during the session.
For more intensive training, I offer 1-on-1 private workshops where I can focus all my attention on you and go deeper into your needs.
