Authentic guide to newborn photography  mentorship programme.

   Have you been dreaming of becoming a newborn photographer but don’t know where to start?

Are you ready to get out of the 9-5 and start building the life that you want?

Do you want to learn from a real person with over 10 years experience, who will show you how to build your business with alternative’s to some of the expense of starting out and help you through every step in a no faff way and real way?

With accountability and support, so you achieve the outcome that you want.

At the beginning of the year (2023) I took 4 lovely people who had never photographed a newborn before, who knew nothing about newborn photography and helped them build not only their business, but their confidence and portfolio.

This was my trial to see how much they could learn and gain from this online programme.

They blew me away with how much they absorbed, how much they learnt, how much they improved during the programme. 

 How they went from literally worrying about photographing a newborn to I’m doing this and making some money as they went.

The transformation was amazing.

I know this programme works because I have trialed it with absolute beginners and it works, if you are ready, committed to making a change and ready to put in the work, you will succeed in becoming a newborn photographer.

Each week of this programme we will be working together on the foundations of newborn photography to build your business and your brand. 

On completion of the programme, you will have the skills, confidence and knowledge that you need, as well as your own portfolio of gorgeous newborn images and the essential business knowledge that you need.

If you want to evolve from thinking about it and actually becoming a professional newborn photographer, then this is for you! I am going to help you take that step from wondering about it, to doing it.

I have helped turn the most nervous, unconfident, lacking in self belief brand new photographers into confident, knowledgeable newborn photographers, that are actually doing it, running their dream business. 

This authentic newborn photography course will give you all the knowledge, tools, support and the right mindset to build and grow your business.

This is not your ordinary newborn training, this is authentic so you will learn real life experiences, not a glorified version.

This course will help you earn while you learn, with simple steps to get you to where you want to be. Yes I will be showing you how to earn while you are learning this programme.

 Would you recommend this course to others?

100 % yes. The sheer honesty and real experiences that are being shared, and the fact that you are so truthful about your journey from complete beginner to award winning newborn photographer inspires me and gives me hope that I could achieve a solid regular income from newborn photography. You are not only showing us how to do things, but why we should do them as well as always saying we have choices of how we do things, because its our business. I love that you don’t just say it’s your way or not atall, and I really appreciate how you are there to answer questions and help with insecurities . Having been self taught and never having any real direction from anyone I wondered if I’d struggle to keep up, but you make it such an enjoyable experience and your friendly approach is absolutely brilliant. Anyone who is thinking about starting newborn photography, whether they already know huge amounts about settings lighting and editing or whether they are literally just picking up there first camera will benefit from your experience and guidance 🙂

I can’t imagine anyone else running a course quite like yours, it is most definitely authentic and unique 🙂

When I first started, I was so nervous about photographing newborns in particular and was researching expensive private photography tuition and all sorts. I also didnt really know where to start with building a business and was feeling quite overwhelmed and wishing I hadnt even started the whole debacle! From the very first zoom call, I was so impressed with what I had learnt. You made me feel confident and excited about my business.


This course has made a huge difference, I just can not believe how much Ive learnt from you. This course has been the best money that I have spent on the business so far. I cant thank you enough xx


I’m not sure what I was expecting but what you did was absolutely fantastic for me. I don’t do video calls normally but your friendly approach and your absoloute honesty and understanding about how expensive this can be and giving alternatives was exactly what I needed personally. So for me I’m absolutely hooked and looking forward to next week. 


I joined this course thinking that I knew the basics of starting up a business from my own research, however Deana has the experience and knowledge to point you in the right direction for things such as insurance, contracts, suppliers etc. I have found it so insightful and has really helped me to put a business plan into place. Whenever I finish a session with Deana, I feel confident and motivated in my business decisions. I can’t wait to progress onto the Newborn safety training and editing sessions.


Highly recommending Deana Louise Hewitt! I’m currently doing her online workshop and it’s amazing. Amount of knowledge that Deana is sharing is incredible – you won’t get that during in person workshop. I would say that this is more like a mentorship. ❤️❤️❤️


 Meet your mentor

I am a nature loving creative, who takes on animals that need a new home.

My family of animals includes, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens and alpacas. I have over 50 in , all living their best life.

I have been photographing newborns for 10 years, during that time I gained an associate in Newborn Photography, won over 40 awards, have been a mentor, judge and helped produce the new newborn safety certification.

I now enjoy passing on my knowledge to others in a no faff, authentic way.

Previous delegates have said they love my simple approach to teaching so that everything is easy to follow and then implement into their own business, they love that im an open book.

I’ve had several 1:1 training sessions now with Deana over the years. Each time I’ve come away inspired to learn, ready to improve and practice my craft. Deana’s unique and patient teaching method means she explains and demonstrates everything so clearly. She ensures you totally understand a topic before moving ahead to the next. No question is too simple and Deana repeatedly answers every one without judgement. My work has definitely improved under Deana’s mentorship. I’m now confidently charging customers my worth and enjoy continued refresher course with Deana. She is a talented, friendly and gifted teacher. Thank you Deana.

Brilliant trainer and photographer! Absolutely lovely lady , very patient and understanding. She knows A LOT about photography and twice as much about babies ! Couldn’t recommend her enough x


On the 6th of October I did a two day 1:1 training session in Deana’s studio. I was a complete beginner and was very worried that I wouldn’t understand any of it. I had never photographed a newborn before and had only just picked up a camera. Deana’s training session was everything I needed and more ! Deana gave me the confidence to not only photograph my first ever newborn during the training but to then go on and start my own photography business. Deana was a fabulous teacher, very calm, supportive, easy going and if I was ever unsure of anything she would always find another way to explain. Deana went up and beyond to help me find the confidence to make my dreams become a reality. Before this training, I felt every overwhelmed and lost, I now know what I need to do and I how to do it. I would highly recommend Deana to anyone who’s thinking of becoming a photographer or needs that little confidence boost
