Belly Baby and Beyond 2018

When? May 18-20, 2018

Where? It will be held in Huntington Beach, California

What? The Belly Baby and Beyond Collection of Workshops event is the premier international photographers conference dedicated to the art and the business of pregnancy and newborn photography.


2017’s inaugural event was a smashing success and we’re back to do it again – even bigger and better!

Professional and aspiring photographers 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,  learning how to grow their businesses and forge new relationships that will last a lifetime. The conference will also feature a spectacular vendor expo with hand-picked manufacturers showing off new products to help photographers get an advantage over their local competition.

What Else?

And during downtime, the ocean is literally a stone’s throw away with spectacular Southern California shopping and nightlife just steps in any direction from your room – all to provide the perfect break from all the classes. We hope you make it a family vacation if you can!

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!

Child care will be available, as well as ASL (American Sign Language) Interpretors.

Who? Ana and Geoff Brandt are leading the effort with a team of committed experienced event planners and a technology team to bring the best conference ever that’s focused on the early stages of life. This event will cover birth, pregnancy, newborn, children and family.
