    1. Game Changing

      I bought this the day before a newborn session. I had been watching all kinds of things frantically trying to figure out what I wanted to do. This was perfect. I loved it. So helpful and doable! I was so surprised but the PDF was actually the most helpful resource. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a consistent style in newborn photography or looking for something different then the typical posing on 29th Apr 2018

    2. Can you give a class 10 stars???

      Seriously, I purchased this breakout and one other on newborn portraits as I had requests to do more portraiture work in my sessions. This breakout was a game changer!!! Alison is so easy to follow her videos and her set ups. I highly recommend her break out! This is definately the one you want. on 29th Apr 2017

    3. Excellent course for all levels!

      I usually avoid workshops, as I find often they they focus too much on teaching the instructors individual style rather than actual technique. In this course, however, Alison has done an amazing job of teaching technique in a way that allows you to adapt it to your own style. She shares an insane amount of information and is so open about every aspect of her process.
      This course has great information for even advanced photographers, anyone who wants to refresh and renew their newborn style in a way that is simple and less stressful!

    4. READ THIS!

      Man, this breakout session was fantastic! The pdf all by itself is just chalked full of information. I actually saved it to my desktop as it is an amazing reference with detailed descriptions and amazing visuals. The videos going through the sessions tell a perfect workflow story. This breakout session was complete from A to Z. The added bonus is Alison teaching how to make mini films of sessions!! I feel like she is pioneering in this part of photography and man, two words: GAME CHANGER! Her session is very honest and detailed down to the last word in her pdf. I definitely backed this up on more than one hard drive. Bravo Alison! Good energy and a very well put together breakout session! on 18th Jun 2016

    5. An Amazing Breakout!

      I gasped when I began going through Alison's breakout because I couldn't believe how much info was in it! There is so much information in it. It was difficult to walk away from it to tend to life, my kids. This breakout is excellent for any photographer that is looking to simplify their workflow process. Studio or not, the information is resourceful! The 74 page PDF is beautiful, with little nuggets of information on each page. The instructional videos are wonderful for those who learn by watching. The video aspect of it will leave you wanting to experiment and explore ways to process them as well. All in all, this breakout is worth every penny and more. I'd highly recommend it!

      Loved this breakout session so much! Not only is it beautifully presented, Alison's personality is so sweet! Plus, the included printed material is lso just plain gorgeous! I've been photographing newborns for a few years, but this class has been a game changer! The last two newborn sessions have been way more exciting because it's so much less stressful!!! Thanks, Alison!!! on 7th Jun 2016

    7. So worth it!

      I love this break out! Alison really insired me to look at newborn photography through dofferent eyes ! on 7th Jun 2016

    8. So thought out and relevant information

      This breakout was worth every penny and time spent reading and watching Alison’s videos. She gives so much material. Alison’s calm demeanor with your little clients is refreshing and her workflow is so thought out and efficient. I loved every minute I’ve spent on this breakout and can’t wait to practice. on 7th Jun 2016

    9. Simple is beautiful!

      This was such a fantastic breakout if you are interested in simplifying newborn and maternity sessions! The maternity section is a game changer for me and I am so excited to implement so much of what I have learned. I also think that this course is one that will allow me further growth as I start playing a bit with video. The breakout is packed full of inspiration from studio to styling, posing and lighting. I can't recommend it enough! on 7th Jun 2016

    10. Refreshing approach to newborn photography!

      I am not a newborn photographer (yet) but I have been intensely attracted to it, studying other people's images and silently observing in online groups. It wasn't until Allison's Breakout popped up in my feed that I felt drawn in enough to take a course. What makes her approach so beautiful is that it doesn't fuss with poses and props, but catches the newborn in his or her natural, perfect state. It's like holding your breath for a really long time and then being allowed to let it go and just breathe. So refreshing and freeing! So, if you're curious but hesitant, don't be here...this is real life, natural newborns as they are. And I now feel like I have permission to make the timeless, heirloom quality images that I knew I was after, but didn't realize I could achieve. on 7th Jun 2016
