    I decided to jump into this breakout as I noticed myself taking more candid shots of our lives right now during this crazy time. They were good, but I knew they were missing something and Linsey helped me see the little tweaks I can do to improve my captures of our everyday life and save our legacy. One thing that really stood out to me was to print these photos and hang them up. I honestly, have always just printed the “posed photos” and now that I am taking a second look at the ones I have been taking this week, I love them so much and can see how much they would add to our home to have them on the walls. And, I LOVED her underwater editing tips! I can’t wait to get my camera back out in the pool this summer! If you want to capture your legacy, run and grab this breakout today! You won’t regret it.

    I’m a huge fan, and knew I had to jump at this one when I saw you released it! I started another 365 project this year, and with the Covid crisis, I’m finding it hard to shoot my every day photo. This breakout has inspired me so much, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a GoPro next! :D Amazing breakout!!

    especially in a time where our lives have completely changed. To be able to capture these moments to show to our kids later on in life, how we handled the pandemic, the fear, anxiety, yet the closeness it has brought us will be so cool. Seeing how she thinks through the videos really helped me to understand how she approaches documentary photography. Now to put it all into practice!

    I constantly struggle with the desire to pick up my camera and feeling like I don’t have anything worth photographing.

    This breakout was just the motivation I needed. When I look back at old family photos it is the old candids that are the most intriguing to me. The ones where you can see “wow, look at nana’s terrible wallpaper” and “I remember that couch!”. There is so much beauty in the everyday. Messy home and all. This breakout inspired me to dust of the camera and try to capture more of these memories because they will be so meaningful down the road. The inspiration and lessons from this breakout will stay with me long after this session is over.
