I'm a mom, just like you. I've blinked and my 3 boys have jumped from babies to kids and I wholeheartedly agree believe that creating & capturing special memories together matters more than anything.

hi, i'm paige!

Hey there, fellow newborn photographer!

As someone who has been in your shoes, I know firsthand the joys and challenges that come with running a successful photography business. Like you, I’ve experienced the overwhelming feeling of trying to balance it all – from capturing the perfect shot to managing client expectations and everything in between.

That’s why I’m so excited to share with you the secrets I’ve learned over the years, specifically when it comes to mastering Photoshop and unlocking the potential for 4-figure sales through softproofing, in-person or online sales (IPS) and efficient editing techniques.

Whether you’re a passionate photographer who started your journey as a stay-at-home parent or the owner of a prestigious studio known for its professionalism and attention to detail, I understand the unique challenges you face because I’ve been both! Building a thriving business while prioritizing your family or managing a growing team is no easy feat.

Selecting the Best of the Best: Culling Your Newborn Photography

What if I told you that there’s a way to streamline your editing process, save valuable time, and focus only on the images that truly matter – the ones that will wow your clients and lead to those coveted 4-figure sales?

That’s where my personalized editing mentorship program comes in. I’ve crafted a proven workflow that allows you to identify the images with the most selling potential and transform them into stunning works of art using the power of both Lightroom and Photoshop. By concentrating your efforts on these select images and utilizing a softproofing system like mine- you’ll be able to create wall-worthy portraits that have your clients crying with joy and whipping out their credit cards- without spending countless hours editing every single shot.

The Magic of In Person Sales for Newborn Photography

Whether you do in person sales sessions or sell through an online gallery, I’ll teach you how to guide your clients through the process of selecting and purchasing the perfect artwork for their home, creating an unforgettable, emotionally-driven experience that not only increases your average sale but also leads to loyal, repeat clients.

Imagine being able to confidently present your work, knowing that each image is a masterpiece worthy of being displayed on your clients’ walls. Picture the joy on their faces as they fall in love with the portraits you’ve created, eagerly investing in high-quality prints and products that showcase your talent and expertise.

By mastering this powerful combination of softproofed editing and effective in-person sales, you’ll be able to achieve consistent 4-figure sales, without the need to take on more clients or work longer hours. This means more time for you to spend with your loved ones, and more resources to invest back into your studio and team.

Editing for Newborn Photographers

Now, let’s talk about the unique challenges of editing newborn photography. As you know, newborn skin can be delicate and often flaky, requiring special attention and techniques to ensure a flawless finish. (While not being too flawless, blurred or fake looking!) In our mentoring sessions, we’ll dive deep into the best practices for retouching newborn skin, including how to remove flakes, even out skin tones, and create a smooth, natural-looking complexion.

But that’s not all – we’ll also cover advanced techniques like extending backgrounds, color correction, head swaps, and perfecting those adorable froggy poses. I’ll share my favorite Photoshop tools and shortcuts, as well as my tried-and-true methods for saving time and streamlining your editing process without sacrificing quality.

No one-click presets here- I’ll teach you how to actually use the tools at your disposal so you can create a workflow that works for you – instead of one that has to be endlessly tweaked depending on the image.

By the end of our mentoring sessions, you’ll have a comprehensive understanding of how to tackle even the most challenging aspects of newborn photo editing. You’ll be equipped with the skills and confidence to create stunning, wall-worthy portraits that your clients will treasure for a lifetime.

Who am I to teach you?

Who am I to teach you, you might ask? Well, I’m Paige McLeod, and I’ve been a newborn photographer since 2017. While I love capturing those precious moments, my true passion lies in editing – something I’ve been doing since 2000! Prior to opening my studio I had the privilege of editing for major companies like Nordstrom, Eddie Bauer, and Cascade Designs, as well as magazines like Entertainment Weekly and boutique photographers like Seattle Boudoir Photography.

Through my extensive experience with both Photoshop and Lightroom, I’ve developed a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of what it takes to create stunning, saleable images. I’ve honed my skills and created a signature editing style that has helped me achieve consistent 4-figure sales in my own newborn photography business, Glean & Co for the past 7 years.

I know that the path to success as a newborn photographer can be challenging, but I’m here to guide you every step of the way. As a parent and a business owner myself, I’ve faced the same struggles and triumphs that you have. Through my 1:1 mentoring sessions, I’ll share the knowledge and techniques that have transformed my own business and helped me achieve my dreams.
