For Photographers

Mentoring

Photography mentoring in Des Moines and beyond.

There are various mentoring options with Kiwi Marie Photography that will fit the needs of any photographer and for photographers seeking to learn about newborn photography! Please read about the three mentoring options below.

One on One

$250

What I wouldn’t give to have mentoring available to me when I first started out in 2010! I’ve learned A LOT these past six years about photography, owning my own business, marketing, accounting basics, etc. And I’m still learning. I recognize the immense value in having someone sit down with you, and going over photography and your business through and through. That’s why I offer one on one mentoring!

One on One mentoring includes:

  • 4 hours with me to talk about what YOU need whether you’re just starting out in photography, or you’re knowledgeable in the more advanced stuff. Need help with starting a business? Marketing? I’m an open book!
  • Lunch/dinner
  • Headshots
  • Print out of our topics to take home to review whenever you need it
  • Access to a Facebook group full of other amazing photographers where we lift each other up, ask questions, and more.

Skype

$125

Skype Mentoring is the same as a regular One on One Mentoring session, but offered to those who are not in Des Moines or if you just aren’t able to meet with me in person. What’s great about this option is that you can do this in the convenience of your home or coffee shop, almost any time of the day! Heck, we can chat in our pjs! 

Skype mentoring includes:

  • 1 hour on Skype to talk about what YOU need whether that be for someone who is just starting out in photography, or for someone who is knowledgeable in the more advanced stuff. Need help with starting a business? Marketing? I’m an open book!
  • Print out of our topics to review whenever you need it
  • Access to a Facebook group full of other amazing photographers where we lift each other up, ask questions, and more.

Newborn

$750

Knowing how to pose newborns in such a cute and flattering way while at the same time maintaining their safety requires a lot of education and practice. Newborn mentoring is offered to those who wish to gain the knowledge from a professional who has gone through the trials and errors, and perfecting her craft.

Newborn mentoring involves:

  • 6 hours in studio with 2 newborn models
  • How to prep for a session
  • Learning all the essential poses
  • Learning how to soothe a newborn to sleep
  • Finding out the reflexes and physiology of these little ones
  • Knowing the importance of safety at all times
  • How to shoot in natural and/or studio light
  • How to work through an uncooperative baby
  • Touching on composite posing
  • Food & drinks
  • Receiving a print out of our topics to take home to review whenever you need it
  • Receiving a video on how I edit a newborn photo
