For the LOVE of Rachel Vanoven, Norma Fayak Photography , 5-star review, Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer |Woodbridge|Alexandria|Fairfax|Manassas


Alright,  so here we are again, another opportunity to get Rachel Vanovens e-workshop for her biggggg Black Friday Sale with huge savings.  Should you get it? Heck yes.

And i’m going to tell you why!

If you are anything like me your biggest fear is investing your hard earned money and not getting any results.  Let me explain, The moment I downloaded the e-workshop I couldn’t put it down. It’s like an explosion of valuable information from the beginning of a newborn session to the very end when, even including information/tips on how to quickly cull images and edit consistently.  The videos are very professional and RACHEL is literally talking to you, narrating over the video, like she’s there with you explaining everything she is doing while posing each newborn.  I absolutely love the fact that there are not one but THREE newborn models used during the videos to show different sizes and for us to see different scenarios. I remember one baby was really skinny so she gave a tip to better pose ad photograph him.  Prior to this workshop I had never successfully captured the froggy pose until I watched her videos and I got it the first newborn after trying.

Check out this little fella, unfortunalty he was before the workshop.                 And this chunk of love was taken this month,  8lbs of 100% baby squish
(YIKES, embarrassing! His right hand though.. *_*  )

And if that doesn’t help, here are some of my newborn froggies throughout 2015:


Not only are you learning how to pose newborns, but you’re learning how to easily and safely transition newborns from one pose to the next. Creating a faster and more efficient workflow.  Your clients are going to love you! They just had a baby, they’re tired and your super fast workflow is going to blow their minds.

I look back and feel awful about some of my newborn session,  they were all 4-5 hour sessions.  (I KNOW, but I thought I didn’t need help and wanted to do it on my own) Don’t be like me and make your clients sit through 5 hour sessions! My sessions are now about half that time and I’m rocking out 60-80+ images in their final gallery.

My FAVORITE part about Rachel’s e-workshop is the narrated videos and I really enjoy the Facebook group for all e-workshop members.  Its an amazing resource of newborn photographers sharing the same learning experience, networking and creating friendships. AND with Rachel active in the group it feels very personable. It doesn’t get ANY better than that.  Thats like lifetime VIP membership status with access to Rachel…woo hoo!   I’m so grateful for the opportunity the e-workshop has created for many others like myself, it feels so incredibly amazing to finally be good at something and LOVE IT.

So back to the beginging when I told you I feared I wouldn’t get any results and was worried the newborn e-workshop would be a waste of money…   I am going to leave you with this collage and let you decide if the workshop was worth the investment…Below are images from August 2014 compared to my most recent sessions this month and last month. Its been ONE year, I’ve done 31 newborn sessions since Rachel’s E-wokshop and 46 newborn sessions EVER .. Where will I be in 2 or 5 years?

Can’t wait to find out, hope to see you in the VIP group 😉
