    Sarah includes such detailed information and really knows how to teach it! Her shooting videos were so professional and well done! I loved all the different posing ideas and great tips she gave! The editing videos were amazing and I appreciate that she included some presets! Sarah is very much to the point, not a bunch of “fluff” and touches on all the important details. I highly recommend this breakout!

    Sarah is such an inspiration and an amazing teacher. I learned so much from lighting to posing and how to engage my clients for more natural emotive moments. I especially loved the editing section to really make my images stand out. Sarah doesn’t hold anything back and I can’t wait to apply all her tips to my next session

    Wow! What a break out!

    Posted by Juliana on 20th Aug 2020

    This is a real teaching course. I learned so much and felt like Sarah was teaching just me. She detailed everything out piece by piece and told all her “secrets”. She didn’t leave anything to guesswork, which I normally feel like happens when I take courses like this. I love how every photo in the PDF lists the lens used, F stop, ISO, etc. Again, no guesswork. And the video’s were extremely helpful! During the live movement, she had stills pop up that showed the final shots taken during that moment. Amazing! The way the course is broken down into steps makes it very helpful to stay organized. I can’t wait to shoot my next family and I feel like I gained a friend in Sarah.
