In photography, light is everything. Come along with five photographers as they seek out beautiful light in its many forms: indoors and out, north to south, backlight, low light, soft light, and beyond. Watch as they approach a scene, find the light, and harness its radiance to produce incredible photos.

You’ll go behind the scenes during different times of day to capture the light with Shalonda, Anna, Julie, Breanna, and Danielle.

Explore with them through shooting videos, pullbacks, and light diagrams. You’ll see exactly how each photographer positioned her subject (and herself!) relative to the light to create their magical images. Come along….indoors and out, north to south, midday to blue hour.

Shalonda Chaddock is the face and camera behind Chubby Cheek Photography. She is a nationally published child photographer based out of Houston Texas, where she is drowning in glitter and princess dresses with her two daughters and the love of her life. Her shooting style focuses on the magic of childhood and finding the unique sparkle within each child. 

Anna Larson is a wife, mother to three and documentary photographer. She creates personal work daily and photographs the stories of others through commissioned work. Her family resides in Olympia, WA. The lush, endless evergreens and grey skies provide plenty of inspiration. Her days are filled with raising children, gardening, cooking and making.

Fascinated by history and photography, and inspired by the organized chaos of raising her three children, Breanna Peterson lives in Kodiak, Alaska, documenting their every day. She sees herself offering her children a tangible piece of history in the form of photographs, and has become quite passionate about doing the same for other families. 

Danielle Awwad is a natural light photographer who focuses in the areas of fine art, lifestyle and environmental portraiture. She lives on a large hay farm in Michigan with her husband, three small children and a lot of animals. Danielle is a light seeker and is drawn to all types of natural light. She enjoys documenting her family and their daily adventures of farm living.  When she is not behind the camera you will often find her outdoors, riding her horses or cooking with her children.

Julie Paisley is a wife to her college sweetheart and a mama to two of the coolest kiddos on the planet. She lives in Nashville and is a Hybrid (both film and digital) wedding photographer and mentor and has had the privilege of traveling the world shooting weddings and teaching workshops.

    Different perspectives and styles gave me a lot to pull from.

    Posted by Amanda Dowdy on 18th Mar 2018

    This break out was packed with good material. I loved the variety of presenters and the different ways they each used light. Some of the ideas were spot on with what I have been trying to achieve and others stretched me and gave me something new to think about.

    The LIghtseekers Volume 2 was my first introduction to Clickin Moms.

    Posted by Shirley Voelker on 22nd Sep 2017

    I’ve so enjoyed everything. The videos are amazing. So may wonderful suggestions. I’ve been a pretty much “find some shade and take a pic” person for portraits. This Breakaway has made me open my eyes to looking for the light and see where it is coming from. I’ve learned so much. The .pdf file is awesome. So many suggestions and the photos are amazing examples. Being able to download all videos and the .pdf file are such a plus. I love that I can refer back to everything for years to come. The presenters were soooo good. It was such a nice variety of natural light shooters and was nice to be able to see different ladies showing how they use the light to get such great photos. Thanks so much!

    Posted by Courtney Mummert on 22nd Sep 2017

    I am a newbie to manual photography and am self teaching myself everything I can through online courses and trying to absorb it all/ This breakout has given me such a better understanding of light and what to look for. It’s been so beneficial to me and I can’t wait to take advantage of other breakout learning opportunities. You ladies are such an inspiration. Thank you so much!

    This breakout will not disappoint!

    Posted by Elise Travis on 22nd Sep 2017

    I returned to Clickin Moms after a two-year break and man, I sure have been missing out. I have purchased other breakouts in the past, but what makes this one so unique is that it incorporates the work of such incredible artists- some of which have very shooting styles. I love that the behind the scenes videos truly make you feel like you are standing there with the instructors looking around asking yourself “where is the light”? Because when creating a beautiful photo, that’s all that really matters.
