Pebbles and Polka Dots & Meg Bitton Souls.Imagined 2015 World Tour


Meg Bitton, Souls.Imagined and Pebbles and Polka Dots Photography have set their world tour for 2015 and are ready to bring you the ultimate retreat to take you on a photography journey, and to set you up to rock out your outdoor sessions that YOU will be offering your clients. This workshop will change your photography forever.

Meg and Mary are so excited to release the details on these amazing retreats celebrating the art of capturing the soul from where it begins to where it flourishes. Join us as we explore maternity, newborn and child photography under the halo of forest trees, golden fields, mountain backdrop, and learn how to capture your newborn in nature. They will be traveling to Arizona, California, Atlanta Georgia, Puerto Rico, Austin Texas, London England, and Paris France.

Are you struggling with posing your pregnant client and creating comfort so she’ll reveal bare skin? These retreats will help you create an artistic photo of that Mama and not just take a photo of her belly. Feel confident before the session even starts after learning what you have to deliver.  Get comfortable with shooting a newborn outdoors.  Watch our workflow as we go from shot to shot with the newborn and his/her parents. Walk with us as we explore the grounds and how we choose where to shoot and which props to use. Watch our soothing techniques, and how to get the newborn session completed smoothly. No more struggles with lighting and where to place your subject to find that wow effect. Do you wish you could get those gorgeous glowing photos and flowing fabric shots and not sure where to start? Wish you could try new angles and techniques? This is the workshop for you!!!

Be confident in offering maternity, newborn, and child sessions. Book more newborns by getting your name out there with the expectant Mamas in your area. Increase your income by offering gorgeous Maternity packages to your Newborn sessions! And ultimately book way more newborns when future clients see how amazing your outdoor newborn photos are.

Carry all that into your childrens sessions as well. Learn from the most beautiful child photographer there is, Meg Bitton. Capture your clients in their essence of themselves. Get away from all that posing and smiling at the camera. Let the children dance, play and run free and learn how to get the portraits that make your clients squeal with delight and want to order prints as large as the come.
