When I got into the world of newborn photography, I felt really overwhelmed, frustrated and alone. I knew the types of images I wanted to create, but I couldn't quite figure out what I was doing wrong. I created The Milky Way so other photographers could learn posing, lighting, editing and business - without all the frustration.

Wherever you are, whatever your stage, we have something that’s perfect for you!

From beginner-friendly online courses on newborn posing and studio lighting to inspiring online retreat experiences with multiple instructors, to the brand-new Art & Soul Academy, it’s all here for you.
