    Learn how to create dreamy images!!!

    Posted by Meredith Delcamp on 13th Sep 2016

    Tracy is such an amazing photographer and teacher!!! This breakout is packed so full of all of the details I was wanting to know. From the first time I saw her work, I wanted to know what gave her that “dreamy” and magical feel. She doesn’t hold anything back in this breakout and shows us all how she achieves this look in incredible details. Tracy really wants us all to be the best we can, and her style is so supportive, warm and helpful! On a side note, I have mentored with Tracy and it was such a great learning experience! I had photography issues, editing issues, and even work/life balance issues. She was totally focused on me and how to help me grow – which I did!!! If you want her help in focusing on “you” – I would highly recommend mentoring with her. If you want to focus on “her” and how she gets those beautiful pictures – I would highly recommend this breakout. It is an amazing value and the videos alone are extremely helpful!!! Thank you Tracy!

    Such a beautiful breakout! I loved learning some tips and tricks for working with children, and can’t wait to use them in my next children or family session. The pre-session tips and planning were invaluable, and I loved watching the editing videos, seeing how Tracy transformed regular pictures into works of art. I’ve been truly inspired by the information given in this Breakout and can't wait to transform my own work!

    Amazing Workshop!

    Posted by Marina on 7th Sep 2016

    The dreamy imagery of Elan studio by Tracy Sweeney is magical. Tracy loves what she does and it spills out into every faucet of her work as she shows you how she interacts, poses, engages with, and styles sessions. Her usage of light & editing is heavily emphasize on. Tracy is very generous in this breakout session, sharing her very best secrets of photographing those dreamy littles in the perfect light.

    This breakout is very intimate as Tracy takes you with her on location. Then, tops it off by informatively walking you through her unique editing style from start to finish. Raw, honest, & very detail oriented. I keep watching them over and over again, I just can’t get enough. Each time I watch I learn new information!

    I could go on and on about all the creativeness that this breakout stirred up inside of me. Her magic and love of light is infectious.

    I highly recommend this to anyone looking to learn the secrets of Tracy’s enchanted style of shooting, utilizing available light, & editing. This breakout is pure GOLD. You won’t be disappointed!

    I'm a believer in breakouts

    Posted by Kati Maietto on 6th Sep 2016

    This is my first breakout with Clickin' Moms. I purchased it thinking I would give paid tutorial work a shot, I was looking to step up my outdoor game. Wow. I was blown away by this breakout. Tracy perfectly explains each step in easy-to-understand terms and makes you feel as though you CAN achieve your dream style. Thank you Tracy! I'm a fan

    Very good and useful! Love it!!

    Posted by J. Smit on 6th Sep 2016

    I had several breakouts before but this one had really helped me in making a little bit boring pictures with overcast light in colourful pictures. De pdf is beautiful with a lot of helpful information and so are the video's. I love the video of the session. It is so good to see someone in action.

    Letting Littles Shine

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Sep 2016

    This breakout has a lot of great information for those that photograph children! I think it would be especially helpful for those who photograph at the beach and who love a dreamy feel in post-processing. There is a musical overlay in the shooting video. The post-processing videos take you through Tracey's workflow in LR and then add some other finishing touches in Photoshop. My favorite part was the was packed FULL of great information - everything from sibling interactions to a client questionnaire to get the best session possible!
