Hi! I’m Micah Simmons, I live in Northern Virginia with my four little ones and husband. I love to document life, the good, the messy, and everything in between. If I’m not shooting (both professionally and personally!), you will find me out in nature or often traveling with my family.

I feel stuck in a rut, the winter weather in the midwest, the never ending quarantine (11 months and counting in Chicago!), my kids are as sick of me and my camera as I am of taking their pictures! So why not sign up for a breakout, shake things up a bit? Micah’s breakout is lovely- I’d definitely recommend this to any new photographers who may be click photo school curious, Micah provides an accessible intro to light and composition, but photographers who know their stuff will enjoy it as well; a reminder to shoot with intention, to look at the usual in a fresh way. I worked my way throat the PDF last week and I’m working on the videos now. A little slowly, because my kids won’t leave me alone, but one of the nice things about these breakouts is that everyone can work at their own pace.
To be honest, I’ve been following her for a while and was always looking forward to her breakout. This is a great breakout, and I would love to recommend it to anyone who is eager to either capture the beautiful moments of your loved ones at home or to tell your clients stories in an authentic way. In this breakout, Micah talked about her composition and her lighting. She filmed a few typical scenarios such as indoor and outside sessions, moody and sunny days… She also gives us so many helpful tips when she guided her kids and how she found the light source. In her editing videos, she worked on every detail that matters to the whole style, but not only included the colors and tones. It’s such an informative way to watch her editing process step by step, and achieve the wonderful result. I have to say I’m really inspired by Micah’s breakout! Her vision, her perspective, and her sincerity make this breakout so amazing!!! Thank you, Micah!
She’s great with explaining her techniques and prompts she uses to capture pictures of her family. The pdf is packed with good material and examples as well as I loved all the videos with how to shoot and edit. Thank you so much for inspiring me!
Not only does she cover the basics of location and use of light but she also gives you prompts and creative ideas. Editing videos and behind the scenes videos are available as well to help see an image go from vision to completion. Highly recommend this course if you are looking to document your family or clients in a natural storytelling way. Micah shows you how to elevate your everyday photos working around your family rather than disrupting their natural flow.
