Option 1: One On One Private Newborn Photography Class
Kristal offers one on one private mentoring and training sessions at her Click With You Photography studio in Fortitude Valley Brisbane, to help you build a focused, tailored business strategy for your own Newborn Photography Studio or home-based busines.
One on one mentoring provides in-depth training on all aspects of creative newborn photography as well as business development, client relationships and marketing. These sessions give you the opportunity for targeted learning based on your own personal goals, where you are currently at with your business, and where you want to go.
Kristal uses these 1:1 sessions to tailor the content for you. She will share her own personal journey, skills and tips as well as answer all your questions and work closely with you to develop clear goals, creative skills and a sustainable business plan.
Please contact Kristal directly for more information or if you are interested in arranging a one on one private mentoring session.
Option 2: Small Group Newborn Photography Classes and Info Sessions
Our small group newborn photography classes are held periodically throughout the year at the Click With You Photography studio.
Following a similar approach to our one on one baby photography classes, this workshop covers all the basics for operating your own newborn photography business in a shared group environment, including the work setting, studio and photography equipment, set-up, newborn handling and posing, marketing strategy, business development, working with clients and setting goals.
Kristal has a personal, hands-on approach and provides a safe and open environment for learning from each other. She will share her own strategies, skills, inspiration and advice from her many years of experience as a professional baby photographer, and welcomes questions and the sharing of ideas.
Participants will receive individual feedback and discussion to help you tailor a business plan and set personal and professional goals to move forward.
A catered lunch and refreshments are provided. Please advise us beforehand if you have any allergies or special dietary requirements.

Our happy customers have a lot to say about our photography services!
Kristal provided incredible service for our puppy’s photoshoot. She was super organised and enthusiastic, provided the edited in a timely fashion and had heaps of props on hand to get a range of engaging shots of our puppy. We would go back to Kristal without hesitation.
Kristal was fantastic to work with! Very patient and gentle with bub. I have no idea how she does it but managed to capture the most gorgeous photos and settle our bub like a pro. Lots of work goes on behind the scenes of these photos but Kristal made it look completely effortless. Would 100% recommend for anyone looking to get a new born shoot done.
We had our newborn baby shoot and family shoot with Kristal, it has been such an amazing experience and we felt really relaxed. She is extremely talented, patient, kind and thoughtful. I would definitely recommend Kristal to all my friends and family.
Kristal was professional, friendly and took the time to understand what images were important to us. On the day, she was patient and understanding with Bub and made it an enjoyable experience. The images are of amazing quality and beyond what I could have imagined. I would highly recommend using Kristal at Click with you!!!!!!
Had an absolute blast with Kristal as our photographer. The photoshoot couldn’t have gone better with Kristal really knowing how to engage with children so that we got that perfect picture. Professional, efficient and an all round awesome experience. Thank you.
Kristal is super talented at what she does and her images are a work of art. She is professional but personable, extremely confident and caring with babies and knows how to handle a toddler too! Plenty of package options to suit all our needs. The new studio is really beautiful and I can’t wait to bring my kids back for more photos as they grow. Highly recommend!
