Belly Baby & Beyond Conference  

Newport Beach, CA  |  May 2018

The Belly Baby and Beyond learning event is the premier international photographers conference dedicated to the art and business of pregnancy and newborn photography. In our inaugural year, hundreds of professional and aspiring photographers from around the world are expected to join us in Southern California (USA) to learn the latest trends, the newest techniques and the most effective marketing practices from some of the best photographers, teachers and industry veterans in the world.

Students will spend 3 days meeting other professionals,  learn how to grow their businesses and forge new relationships that will last a lifetime. The conference will also feature a spectacular vendor expo with over 50, hand-picked manufacturers showing off new products to help photographers get an advantage over their local competition. And during downtime, the local ocean beaches and southern California nightlife provide the perfect break from all the classes.

Belly Baby Beyond is the creation of Ana Brandt. Known worldwide for her groundbreaking creative techniques, teaching videos and wildly successful clothing & accessory lines, Ana’s dream is to make Belly Baby & Beyond a permanent annual stop on every photographer’s conference calendar. We look forward to you joining us at the beach!
