Making magic requires that you embrace your fears, push yourself, and find your own magic along the way! In this breakout, Shalonda Chaddock of Chubby Cheek Photography will take you behind the curtain to give you an in-depth look at her how she creates magic everyday.

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 (affectionately referred to as the cheeks girls) and the love of her life (daddy cheeks). Her shooting style focuses on the magic of childhood and finding the unique sparkle within each child. She allows REAL life to inspire her and shape her journey as a photographer, always recognizing that the little moments do mean the most (even when it means stepping on a Barbie shoe before she has had her coffee).

    Shalonda Does It Again!

    Posted by Alishaw on 28th Mar 2016

    I purchased Shalonda's previous breakout "The Magic of Childhood" and soaked up every bit of it. In this amazing followup course, Shalonda goes into additional details not only about her creative "All About Me" sessions but how she incorporates her imaginative style into family sessions and mini sessions. This breakout includes business advice and details about the setups as well as incredible video to not only tell you but show you exactly what she does and how she does it. I loved her approach to emotional, amateur video that is stretching her own set of skills and is a great reminder for all of us to keep learning and growing. There is an air of "you can do it" that will give you the confidence to find your own photographic voice with your clients. If you are looking to create magical art and nurture your creative process this is the perfect breakout for you!

    Best Breakout Ever!

    Posted by Kendra on 28th Mar 2016

    I absolutely loved this breakout! Shalonda's first breakout, The Magic of Childhood, had me hooked on her style and this breakout goes into such amazing detail about how she creates her "All About Me" and other sessions that she offers her clients. I love how creative she is and these styled shoots that are catered to each child are absolutely stunning. She talks about everything from the props to the set up to working with the clients. She is such an inspiration! This was an amazing breakout and I absolutely recommend it to everyone!

    I feel like Shalonda is my soul sister.

    I’ve been devouring the course and every page I feel like she has read my mind. I about squealed when I heard the song from her little girl painter session — its the same song as my promo video. Thank you for sharing your heart and vision. It’s reinvigorated my own creativity and desire to capture both my family’s everyday magic and the magic of childhood for my clients. :-)

    I loved it!

    I have been attracted by the gorgeous BO introduction video at Clickin Moms and as I’m trying to put my feet in a similar field I didn’t wait to long and bought this breakout. I finished my material and I cannot wait to start to realize all my new ideas and test trials, that made up my mind when reading Shalonda extrordinary breakout. Either if your place is families and children or if you tend to be the more creative mind, for both interests Shalonda delivers lots of inspiration, most of possible motivation and even some technical insights that might help to take the step to fields that one has not stepped before as they might seem to overwhelming (like video editing). This is a five of five star breakout, worth its money totally.
