    This course is great if you want a quick video with tips on how to take newborn photographs with parents. It is a great alternative to the popular and common "basket pose" or "beanbag pose" that a lot of photographers use. This is almost a shorter version of another course Julia did on Creative Live. So if you want more in depth detail this class is not for you. I would highly recommend any of Julia Kelleher's full classes. She is a creative genius and an amazing entrepreneur! Her classes have changed my photography career forever. I couldn't thank Julia enough.

    Julia's classes are a must for newborn photographers. If you are not a newborn photographers there is much to be gained by getting these classes. Buy all of them! I am now 4 times more profitable than I was 2 years ago. I am so happy that she teaches on Creative Live. I really don't know where I would be right now, without first finding this class.
