“Show me the truth, so I can find my story in your photos”.

Do​ ​you​ ​ever​ ​ask​ ​yourself​ ​why​ ​most​ ​families’​ ​photographs​ ​reflect​ ​only​ ​beautiful,​ ​joyful,​ ​or​ ​funny moments?​ ​Do​ ​you​ ​find​ ​yourself​ ​wanting​ ​to​ ​photograph​ ​the​ ​other​ ​facets​ ​of​ ​life​ ​that​ ​do​ ​not​ ​fit​ ​into a​ ​neatly​ ​curated​ ​box,​ ​but​ ​were​ ​too​ ​afraid​ ​to​ ​do​ ​it​ ​or​ ​ashamed​ ​to​ ​share​ ​it?​ ​What​ ​if​ ​there​ ​was​ ​a way​ ​to​ ​document​ ​all​ ​the​ ​moments​ ​and​ ​details​ ​that​ ​life​ ​has​ ​to​ ​offer,​ ​but​ ​in​ ​an​ ​unapologetic​ ​way with​ ​your​ ​own​ ​photographic​ ​voice,​ ​and​ ​make​ ​photos​ ​that​ ​allow​ ​others​ ​to​ ​find​ ​comfort​ ​and self-acceptance​ ​by​ ​sharing​ ​them?​ ​This​ ​Breakout​ ​takes​ ​you​ ​on​ ​an​ ​introspective​ ​journey, exploring​ ​life​ ​and​ ​reality.​ ​It​ ​will​ ​empower​ ​you​ ​to​ ​confront​ ​fears​ ​that​ ​prevent​ ​photographs​ ​from being​ ​taken.​ ​Using​ ​a​ ​documentary​ ​approach,​ ​it​ ​gives​ ​you​ ​the​ ​practical​ ​tools​ ​to​ ​make photographs​ ​that​ ​embrace​ ​both​ ​your​ ​reality​ ​and​ ​that​ ​of​ ​your​ ​clients’​ ​multi-dimensional​ ​lives.

    I’m so, so happy that I bought this breakout.

    Posted by Danielle LaChance on 13th Dec 2017

    I have always been drawn to documentary photography and this breakout is so inspiring. I am only half way through the materials and have already learned so many things about documentary photography that I didn’t know and am already being pushed creatively. Felicia is not only an amazing photographer but she is extremely helpful and I have found her feedback very helpful. I was worried that I would suffer because I hadn’t taken The Documentary Approach yet but I am not at all! This breakout stands on it’s own and it is already my favorite breakout I’ve taken yet.

    I am in the process of changing to more and more documentary style photography and I loved this breakout.

    Felicia is great! The first video alone made a huge impression on me just by seeing how great she interacts with the family. The PDF also has a lot of great info, very clear and well written. Love it!

    If you are even a little bit interested in documentary photography, get yourself this breakout.

    Posted by Julie Row on 13th Dec 2017

    Not only does Felicia go over the fundamentals of shooting with the documentary approach, she also shares insight on how she grew her documentary photography business over the years. But most importantly, she helps us to see how crucial it is to document and share ALL facets of life, not just the happy and beautiful ones, so that others may see themselves reflected in the not so perfectly curated moments of life, too. Loved this breakout so much.
