Your workshop was absolutely inspiring and amazing. There is so much love and talent that go into each and every beautiful picture. I am beyond blown away and in awe of you. You are just incredible with those sweet little ones. Thank you so much for everything. I loved meeting you.
Not only was it jam packed with information, tips, and tricks but also with FUN!! You two are so sweet & totally hilarious!! I had one of the best times of my life! I laughed til I (almost) peed my pants.
Thanks for the memories (& education). LOVED IT!!!
The world of newborn photography is ever-so saturated and finding the impeccable package of fabulous posing plus amazing style and safety, can honestly be quite challenging in this competitive market. As someone that just started photography this fall, I found exactly what I needed to take my business and talents to the next level! This weekend, I had the opportunity to learn from Nicole Smith Photography and Dewdrops Photography by Amy McDaniel in an amazing workshop where both of these inspiring photographers combined and brought all of their secrets to the table to share....
If you are looking to grow as a newborn photographer and continue to keep things fresh, their workshop is where it's at!

I was just looking at a session I did a couple weeks before Nicole’s workshop and I have to tell you, when I first signed up, I was skeptical because, for me it wasn’t just the workshop fee, it was another 1000$ plus dollars in flights hotels and food to attend this workshop – so I was wondering if it was really going to be worth it & I tell you I would have paid another 1000$ or more on top of the money it had already cost because the difference in my work is absolutely phenomenal. Every session just gets better and better! My last session was the first time I felt like my newborn photos looked how I wanted them to and on top of it all the confidence I’ve gained in my work is huge to me.
I was SO nervous when I arrived and I kept repeating questions people had already asked because I was focussing so much on my anxiety. my anxiety can be really crippling when it comes to my work and can heavily affect the outcome of a session if I waiver in my confidence for even a minute during the session. I have so much confidence now! I learned so so many things but confidence was my biggest thing for me. THANK YOU!

Deciding to mentor with Nicole Smith Photography was the best thing I have done for my business. My biggest takeaways were Nicole’s exquisite styling, fabulous posing tips, post processing workflow and business marketing. However, these are areas of focus that I needed. I loved how Nicole catered to my specific needs. If I could do it all over again, I would DEFINITELY still choose to learn from Nicole. Thank you Missy!

THANK YOU NICOLE for such an incredible experience and learning opportunity at your Calgary workshop. I loved every second of it and learned an incredible amount of knowledge! I can not wait for my next session and feel completely at ease now about so many aspects of my business. You were an amazing instructor and our host (Shawna of Shawna Lousie Photography) was incredibly accommodating and lovely! Had a great time, made new friends, took my work to the next level and got to practice. AMAZING!!!
