If you are looking to learn newborn photography and set up your own business, but want more than just a day’s training and want a mix of in person and online training, then this start up mentoring programme is for you.

This programme is the perfect blend of a 1:1 in person training day so you have the practical skills required, plus 6 weeks of online business mentoring to help build your business and start booking in your first clients.

As an amateur photographer I was welcomed & encouraged with such enthusiasm to a recent newborn workshop .

I questioned that my ability and my confidence was not there.

Deana however can adjust her teaching style to suit each level , and with such a wealth of knowledge and experience she was more than happy to share this with us ,

The workshop was packed with practical experience and  advice .

My images the best I had ever produced .

I am so pleased to be able to offer you Fusion.

I know many, many new photographers will book onto 1:1 or group newborn photography training, but then what?

That is a tiny part of the skills and knowledge you will need to succeed.

How will you know what to do next?

What else do I need to know?

How will you get your first paying client?

How much will you charge?

Fusion is a start up programme offering you the best of both so your business will have everything in place and you can start booking clients and making money.




Your dream of becoming a newborn photographer were only a click of a button away from becoming a reality.

You were earning money from doing something you love.

You chose your own working hours.

You could spend more time with family while still making good money.

You could create images like the ones you have been admiring for so long.

Imagine this and much more

When you take that step to make a change, this all becomes possible.

Hello my lovelies, Im Deana, an East London girl who had a passion for photography and decided one day after seeing a professional newborn photograph in a magazine that, thats what I wanted to do.

I took my £400 camera and kit lens and attended my first group workshop, where I felt like a total fraud, I knew nothing. 

Being as stubborn and determined as I am, I wanted to prove to myself that I could do this and I gave myself 6 months to do it.

I had 3 kids under 5 and very little money but what I did know was that if I had a hope in hell of making this work, I had to find the money to educate myself, the cheap camera does the job but without knowledge, without the experience and wisdom of someone who was already doing what I wanted, I may as well of given up there and then.

Within 12 months I had won 2 awards, people were actually booking me, actually bloody paying me to do what I absolutely loved.

I knew what I wanted from my business so I trained more in every aspect of business, I wanted to know as much as possible to get where I wanted to be.

The best lesson I learnt was my Be You Business approach, this was not about following trends or the crowd but creating an authentic business from within.

10 years later, over 40 photographic awards, an associate in newborn photography, judge of an international awards, 3 business awards and a business that stood out, Images that stood out and being paid well for doing what I loved.

I had made the dream happen and gone beyond that.

If an East End girl like me, not university educated, but with a dream can make it a reality, so can you xx


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

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. ❤️❤️❤️
