The videos really help to see how she gets all of those fun images! This is the perfect breakout to kick off the start of summer.

    Maggie’s enthusiasm, beautifully written pdfs, videos and gorgeous images are awe-inspiring and this breakout is definitely the best rut buster ever!! It is absolutely jam packed with ideas and I know we’re going to have the most fantastic summer! The pdfs are inspirational and the creative exercises are thought-provoking and really taking me out of my comfort zone. The shooting videos are incredible and beautifully done and sooo much fun! I also loved hearing Maggie’s thought process in the editing videos! I love how I’m learning to capture that childhood energy in my images but also taking the frustration out of shooting at the same time and I can’t recommend this breakout enough!

    I was drawn to it because of the color and fun her photographs display but this has been so much more than just that! It makes you think about fun activities to do with your kids; how to capture them while also participating in the fun. Her editing was simple and well explained…I can’t wait to start trying it all out on my own work!
