This is for the newborn photographer who is still in the early stages of their business or just starting out, looking to turn pro.

If you want to supercharge your business and start earning the money you deserve this is for you.

This is over 14 years of knowledge, shared with you over 12 months, which is absolutely priceless.

Not only will this save you money in the long run, but in all honesty probably 2-3 years of trying to work it out alone.

I will be with you every step of the way, supporting you and helping you with every aspect of your newborn photography business, because I know the importance of having ongoing support.

By the end of this programme you will be confidently running your own business and creating images you can only dream off right now.

You are in the right place if doing more of what you love matters to you, if your dreams matter to you, if building a business that is authentic matters to you. 

If you are in the start up phase and looking to turn pro or just starting out, a girl with a dream and a camera, I am going to help you earn money from doing what you love.

This 12 month mentoring programme will give you all the support you need to build an authentic, what I call a, Be You newborn photography business, that gives you the life and business that you want as well as confidence.

I know how much, ongoing support helps with progress and confidence.

We will meet once a month online and work together to build the framework for you to thrive and grow, you are also invited to an in person 2 day workshop, where we spend the day getting creative and working on your business(date tbc)

If you are serious about your business, it starts with you, invest in your business, invest in yourself.

£2995

Either pay in full or pay a deposit of £495 and 10 monthly payments of £250

I am committed to making this course accessible for you because I know the impact this will have on you and your business and I want you to succeed and be able to achieve what I have.

You don’t have to settle with just about scraping through, you really don’t.

I don’t want anyone who wants to join me, miss out, because of money, which is why you have the option to split the cost

Dates will be arranged with you going forward.

 

 

You were producing images that you could only dream of right now, that you were consistently proud of, that stood out and with your own style, that the your client loves.

If you were earning an average of £500-£900 plus per session, a potential of over £3000 a month just on newborn sessions.

If you could charge what your work and time are worth, if you could work with clients that love what you do, who are excited to work with you, who dont make it all about price, so you dont feel the need to justify what you do and what they get over and over again, leaving you feeling deflated.

If you could be more confident in your business and have structured marketing and goals, to actually feel like you are a business woman, who is here to make money and have a better life for you and your family, your not apologetically running this as a hobby or side hustle.

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 and I am going to spend the next 12 months showing you how xx

If you feel like you are not where you want to be in business,  feel like your images are not quite good enough, feel overwhelmed and like you are being ghosted or not getting enough bookings, I am here to tell you its not your fault. 

Maybe you have been wanting to do this for so long but just dont know where to start so never do.

You dont know what you dont know and until you do how can things possibly change and get better?

Maybe you have tried going it alone, watching videos and signing up to free downloads and courses, maybe that didn’t work.

What’s different?

Why will this work?

This is not a one trick pony, quick fix, this is a complete authentic 1:1 support system purely for newborn photographers.

I know from experience that having someone by your side, helping you, supporting you and giving you that gentle push when you need it, is so important.

Now is the time to give it all you’ve got and really make your business work, its time to stop thinking about it and hoping for the best and start taking action.

Be your own boss, work when you want, take a holiday when you want, stop telling yourself you cant and start telling yourself you can, you can do all of that if you you have the tools.

Why cant you make the money you want?

Why cant you work when you want?

Why cant you produce the images you want?

Why cant you have clients that love you and what you do?

Why cant you do things your way?

Is staying as you are, not joining me on this VIP programme really an option?

This Mastermind includes a 2 day workshop at my home in the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds, surrounded by nature and animals.

Day 1

Will be practical, where we will be looking at creativity, posing and refinement.

We will then meet for dinner and drinks

(Hopefully a BBQ time of year/weather permitting)

Day 2

We will be working on our business.

A date will be arranged that suits you and of course Lunch will be included.

There is a lovely little b&b 5 mins from my home and studio.

£2995

Either pay in full or pay a deposit of £495 and 10 monthly payments of £250

I am committed to making this course accessible for you because I know the impact this will have on you and your business and I want you to succeed and be able to achieve what I have.

You dont have to settle with just about scraping through, you really dont.

I dont want anyone who wants to join me, miss out, because of money, which is why you have the option to split the cost

Start when you are ready, dates will be arranged with you going forward.

What if I cant attend a session?

The mastermind is 1:1 support, so we will work together to find a date that suits.

Im brand new, I have just got a camera, will this work for me?

Absolutely, I specialise in helping total beginners to photography & business. My simple approach to teaching means no experience is needed at all.

By the end of the 12 months you will have achieved more than you could wish for right now.

How much time do I get with you?

You will be able to talk to me live each month during the sessions, plus 5 accountability catch ups.  You also will be joining me in person for a full 2 day workshop, where we work on creativity and business. You can of course contact me inbetween sessions for extra support and advice, you have me for a full 12 months.

I have been in business just over a year, can I still do this?

Absoultly, it doesnt matter how long you have been in business if you feel your images are not where you want them to be and you feel lost in your business, this will not only transform your images, but your business, confidence and mindset.

How long does each session last?

Each session will vary, depending on topic, as a guide prepare to put aside at least 2 hours per session (but be prepared for more)

The workshop day will run 10-4 and if you want to stay in one of the local b&b’s we can meet for dinner.

You then need to put aside your own time to do the work.

What is a pause?

This is where we take time off to reflect and catch up with any parts of the mastermind, or revisit.

Pause Months will be August and December

When does it start?

We start when you are ready, just be aware August and December are pause months so no start dates are available at this time.

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.
Nicky

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

Andriana

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
Megan

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. ❤️❤️❤️
