THE COMPLETE MATERNITY EXPERIENCE is Donatella Nicolini’s signature workshop that she has developed over the years to provide you with the most comprehensive, hands-on experience from pregnancy to the mother and baby portraiture.

For the first time, Donatella is hosting an international workshop in her own studio, with the class held entirely

in English.

A two-day photography workshop based on Donatella’s process of producing the highest quality maternity portraits.


This course is designed for professional photographers, both beginner and experienced, looking to take their maternity photography business to the next level and find out all the tips, tricks and behind-the-scenes secrets to attract high-value clients and sell high ticket.


The first day is dedicated to Pregnancy Portraits. Donatella will break down her process step by step, to design and deliver the ultimate photoshoot experience.


There will be two pregnant models for a hands-on experience, so every attendant will have the chance to take stunning portraits during the class and receive real-time advice from Donatella while shooting.


The second day includes Mother and baby portraits, with babies between 7 and 12 months of age, as well as retouching (Photoshop), business and marketing tips.
