    Oh, this course! I was so excited to take this and it didn’t disappoint. I have been in business for 5 years (ok, part-time while I had my 3 babies :) and I found this to be extremely valuable. Not only was Alison was super hands-on and engaged with everyone in the forum and off-line, the content she provided was thorough, comprehensive, professional and a joy to experience. Alison was passionate and generous with her knowledge and was a cheerleader for all of her students.

    This course really focused on the shoots themselves – set-up, lighting, props, and wardrobe etc. We covered in-studio and on-location shooting as well as editing in post. Video! How to incorporate video into your shoots seamlessly and edit afterward. What this doesn’t cover explicitly are the marketing and selling aspects of bellies to babies (would love to see her do a full course on this!). Having said that, Alison was super generous with her knowledge (as mentioned above) and was completely open to any and all questions!

    I would highly recommend this course to anyone working with pregnant mamas, newborns and young babies who are looking for a beautiful, organic and simple way to showcase their art.
