Our event is being held at the award-winning Hyatt Newporter in Newport Beach, California. This is the first event of its kind coming to Southern California.

Belly Baby Beyond focuses on the early years of life. Pregnancy, Childbirth, Newborns, Breastfeeding, Babies, Children and Family as well as a number of classes dealing with running your business. You can now preview the first 25 Speakers and the classes here. We will also have a Vendor Expo area with up to 50 vendors open to students when not in class.

Take advantage of our three payment options:


Phase 1 registration where all food was included for one special price is now closed. The Event Cost for phase 2 registration is $1100 and is still available. Just choose Full Weekend button above.

Phase 3 registration opened up April 16th and accomodates local Southern California photographers who won’t need flights and may not need overnight acomodations, but of course is open to all.

Between April 16th and when the conference sells out, you may also purchase a single day or 2 days of classes rather than the entire 3 day weekend. A single day is $550 and the second day when purchased together with the first is $325 (total $875).

Just click the Two Days or Single Day button above as appropriate. Just make sure you indicate which days you’ll be attending during checkout.

This covers:

  • acces to all classes/workshops for the days(s) you choose
  • free access to the private vendor trade show
  • access to all private online groups
  • complimentary WiFi in your Hyatt (only) guest room,
  • your personal event app on your smartphone
  • access to all the speakers & vendors
  • automatic entry into all event giveaways and specials
  • access to the event Affiliate program so you can earn $ by referring friends and colleagues


Hotel is not included. Rooms have been held at a highly discounted rate (approx $70 off the rack rate, or around $180/night for budgeting purposes) for event students and their families. After you register, you will be given a link to the special rate in the “thank you” page.

The Hyatt will likely sell out prior to the event, so please register as early as you can to avoid the time and expense of daily transportation to and from another hotel.

For the first 8 weeks, we only made the conference available to existing TAoPaN members. On March 15th, we opened registration up to everyone, with advertising and marketing in national media, trade associations, industry email lists, social media and targeted web ads world-wide.

We have half the projected student seats already spoken for and the remaining classroom slots and hotel rooms will go quickly. So sign up for one of our 3 payment plans below while you still can.

We’d hate for you to miss out on rubbing elbows with Ana Brandt and 25 of the best teaching photographers in the world, just steps from the beach in the beautiful Southern California sunshine!


Since January, we’ve been offering the option of splitting the Registration fee into multiple equal monthly payments. Now with only 5 weeks left, you can still split the Registration into two equal payments of $550 or 5 weekly payments of $220
