  • I took this breakout primarily because I wanted to see how Britt successfully manages to shoot lifestyle in-home newborn sessions, more documentary Fresh48 sessions as well as studio posed sessions whilst maintaining a consistent brand and visual style. I was delighted to discover that Britt is so honest and open about her journey to her own shooting model and methodology – her story feels incredibly similar to my own and it was great to learn how she has overcome some of the stresses and obstacles I find in my own work. Britt leaves nothing behind in this great breakout, sharing wonderful tips and personal insights on everything from editing to posing to business. I would particularly recommend the breakout for anyone that is feeling nervous about shooting fresh48 or birth space sessions because there are some fantastic examples to learn from here!

    I am not a professional, but wanted to take this breakout as a way to learn how to take pictures of my baby due in August. Brittnay is amazing at walking through everything she does step by step. All the material is well organized and very informative. I highly recommend this breakout!

  • Ali says:

    This breakout is AMAZING! Brittany takes you step by step through everything she does! Prepping, posing, interacting with siblings, and even the business side of things. It’s all in great detail! It’s very organized and so easy to follow! The videos show you how Brittany sets everything up, and how she goes about each situation. Which was really great to see since in hospital, in home and in studio sessions are so different in so many ways. I also really enjoyed the editing videos. I was looking for some information on Fresh 48, and she really delivered on that! Brittany is so sweet and inspiring! It is worth so much more than $25!

The material is easy to follow and simple to work through with tons of great tips and information to to better your use of lighting, posing, set ups, editing, and overall flow. She shows you in hospital, in studio and in home sessions to give you an idea of exactly how she captures her amazing shots, as well as an editing video and a PDF full of amazing tips, tricks and information! She shows how the whole newborn shoot process can be so laid back and relaxed and how the end results can be AMAZING! This is just what I needed to feel energized about taking on newborn shoots again, and excited to try an different approach. I am so glad I took this breakout, and Brittany has been so sweet and helpful to everyone along the way!

    The depth of information that Brittany covers in this breakout is incredible and I have yet to see anything as thorough as this on Fresh 48 sessions. If you photograph newborns, the material is invaluable and definitely worth more than I paid!

    This breakout has been so valuable. I am using the information to photograph my newborn and it is helping me to build my portfolio. If you’re on the fence, you should definitely join! For $25 this breakout provides amazing information for your photos and your business. Thank you Brittany!

  • Brittany says:

    This is definitely one of my favorite Breakouts! I’ve been searching for good material on Fresh 48s and Brittany did not disappoint!! She even included her personal workflow for a hospital session which was just AMAZING for me since I struggle with this workflow. I really appreciate how much work she put into this and making it so easy to understand and apply.

  • Thank you Brittany! What an amazing amount of information in this BO! I am finishing this up and the info is invaluable! I have photographed newborns for a while but this gives me so many great new ideas and perspectives. I love the idea of bringing your brand together with the different types of sessions. There are so many new things in here to learn. I can’t wait to dig in some more and wow on all of the videos!

  • This breakout is truly a steal!! Brittany is immensely talented and you can tell she has poured her everything into these materials. Getting to follow along with her on sessions and have her explain her thought process behind everything from how she prepares to how she structures the different types of sessions to how she communicates with clients is amazing. I already have so many new ideas I want to try out for my next newborn shoot!! I highly recommend getting this one while it is live, because Brittany is very active on the forum, answering questions and giving feedback on images. Even if you are only interested in one or two of the genres, this is totally worth the investment!

  • Laura Boggs says:

    $25 is not nearly enough for this gem! As someone who is planning to launch a newborn photography business, I could not be more grateful for all the knowledge Brittany has shared. Down the road, when I am able to look back on what helped me most to establish and run a successful newborn photography business, I feel like this Breakout will be at the top of the list. She thoroughly breaks down her 3 types of newborn sessions, discusses light, gear, settings, how she interacts with clients, workflows, shooting videos, tons of helpful editing videos and so much invaluable business advice right down to the documents she uses with her clients. She really covers everything! There’s even a really great bonus PDF about outdoor sessions and a bonus skin action for Photoshop. I’d definitely recommend getting this live too because Brittany has been so present and helpful in the forum, offering very thorough and personal advice – her heart is fully in this!

  • Janny Beimers says:

    Newborn Stories is a wonderful breakout, everything you want to know when you start with newborns (lifestyle or posed) is in the video’s, I can not believe its only €25. Much editing, raw and in photoshop, there are so many video’s in this BO, you can watch the whole day. I bought it especially for the hospital and lifestyle newborn, and I’m not disappointed.

  • Kim Peterson says:

    I honestly can hardly believe how incredible this breakout is – and for only $25!!! She shares everything – from shooting, posing, business tips, workflow, to editing! You will most definitely NOT have buyers remorse. :)

  • Heather Mohr says:

    I knew going in this breakout would be amazing, because Brittany’s work is incredible! Yet she not only meet expectations, she exceeded them in every single way. She is so generous with her knowledge, and she provides so many shooting and editing videos. Whether you’re a new photographer just exploring newborns, a seasoned photographer wanting to branch into simple newborns, this breakout is one you can’t miss. I especially loved the part about Freshe 48 sessions. It is so hard to find good education on this, and this breakout will tell you exactly what you need to know to be successful in that genre. Brittany even offers business advice, as well as samples of how she interacts with her clients. For the price, you can’t miss this! It’s worth so much more!!! I can’t recommend it enough!

  • Marcie Reif says:

    I just finished reading Brittany Blake’s Newborn Stories, and wow, just WOW! Her work is not only beautiful but so inspiring. If you are looking to improve your newborn work, but especially take on a simplistic approach that uses all natural light and natural posing you must read this breakout. She goes into so much depth on how she achieves that simple but stunning look. Her breakout is broken into 3 parts where you’ll learn how to capture newborn stories at home, in the studio, and at the hospital. She gives you pullbacks and tells you exactly how she achieves the amazing results of her sessions. She gives it all away with this breakout! She even includes her initial contact requests and how she responds to her clients. Getting inside her head and learning how she manages and runs her business to how she photographs her clients and her flow is priceless. She also includes amazing and TONS of editing and shooting videos. You can’t leave this one unread. It’s a keeper and I guarantee you’ll refer to it before every session because it’s that good!
