    This breakout is packed full of SO much content.

    Posted by Charis on 9th Apr 2019

    This breakout is packed full of SO much content. Tarah’s work is amazing and her heart shines through. I was amazed at how much info she gives. It was a perfect course to help me on my way as I pursue photographing new babies and their families. From details about prepping clients, shooting the sessions and post editing I love how clearly she gives her information. I bought the course and started the week I had two sessions scheduled. After the first session of the week, I was so glad to have taken the course. It gave me clear ways to think better about how/what I was photographing. I’m looking forward to continuing to use this course as I grow my work.

Not only the downloadable materials are jam packed with useful tips, tricks and information on all things maternity and newborn lifestyle photography, but Tarah has been an extraordinary teacher! She has been SO active in the breakout forum, answering all of the questions and going way beyond and giving her invaluable advice not only on photography subject but also on how to run a successful photography business!

    I am so glad I made the decision to purchase Tarah’s lifestyle maternity + newborn breakout

    Posted by Courtney Cania on 9th Apr 2019

    I am so glad I made the decision to purchase Tarah’s lifestyle maternity + newborn breakout. It’s very thorough as she digs deep into the heart of the beauty and art of lifestyle, with excellent guidelines for choosing sentimental locations, style, and posing and prompting parents, moms, and babies to capture their essence to create artful images that highlight love and connection. In this breakout, Tarah defines the differences between genres of photography, how to create good images in challenging environments and light situations, and some solid business advice in packaging and gaining more clients. I would purchase this breakout again simply for the shooting, editing, and culling videos. I loved watching Tarah rock her sessions, and I came away from these videos just dying for my next photo shoot. Thank you, Tarah!

    P.S. The baby on page 92, 94, and 101 of the PDF—OMG! Too cute to handle.

    Dare I say my most favorite BO I’ve ever read?

    Posted by Kayla on 5th Apr 2019

    Truly, I learn lots from every Clickin’ Moms learning, but Tarah took it one step further for me by not only teaching but for creating lightbulb moments for me. I took pages and pages of notes while working through her BO because I just kept finding little tips and tricks and setting off little thoughts that I knew I could utilize. I read her materials and walked into an in-home newborn session the next morning confident and ready to make magic happen. Not only am I happy but my clients are too. They raved over their photos and I’m confident I can create these images again for my next family. Thank you Tarah for sharing so much wisdom with us!

    One of the best Breakout I have ever purchased.

    Posted by Catherine on 5th Apr 2019

    Tarah is a very talented and inspiring photographer and she has shared so much of how she conduct her business from posing to SEO, business practices etc… the best part was her photo critiques where she has given such helpful feedback. I have never seen someone as involved as she has been and this reflects as well in the materials shared. I highly recommend her Breakout.
