about your presenter

In 2003 D’Ann Boal graduated with a master’s degree in education, but it wasn’t until her son was born and they moved to the Caribbean that she picked up a camera and never looked back. Photographing their quiet life by the sea inspired her photography journey. Today she runs a photography boutique specializing in newborn, child and family photography. Living on a farm in Colorado with her husband, son and daughter, she is inspired by capturing the light and magic of her children’s lives. She treasures her daily cup of jasmine tea, hikes with family, and long swims in the sunshine.

    I wish I would have bought this breakout sooner!

    Not only has D’Ann opened my eyes to new locations to shoot in my home, but she has shown me that it is possible to shoot in areas with little light and lots of clutter. D’Ann is a wonderful teacher, and the behind the scene’s videos are worth the piece of this breakout alone!

    I love D’Ann’s photography.

    Have been following her for some time now and when I saw the breakout I couldn’t resist to learn from her. I had been guessing how she creates certain images, but now was a chance to learn first hand. And the breakout didn’t disappoint! D’Ann is a great instructor who didn’t hold back any of her secrets. I could’t be happier about the content in this class, so many amazing shooting videos with explanations as well as editing videos, they are priceless! This is a must-have breakout if you love D’Ann’s photos and would like to learn how to do that magic yourself! It is absolutely worth every penny.

    I have so enjoyed learning from D’Ann!

    I especially appreciated how she was able to consolidate so much information into easy to follow and digest videos. I have had such a great time trying her tips out around my house. She’s given me a shot in the arm to creatively get through the rest of our stay home orders. Thank you for offering this session at such a time as this and breathing new and inspired life into any old house.
