    Loved it

    Posted by Chanelle on 3rd May 2017

    I am drawn to jennifer's photography style, so naturally I love her presets that were included. I loved being able to watch the videos as well to see how she actually takes the photos, as well as informative i found it a little bit funny how much i could relate, even though I've only the one kid and she clearly has two of the cheekies! I'm not in business so purely bought this for personal use and would recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of extra inspiration to get out there and shoot their family.

    Jennifer’s approach to photographing everyday life has inspired me to look at my own everyday photography in a whole new light. The beautiful images and tips in the pdf truly take you through the whole process from set up to file organization. Meanwhile the shooting videos give you a hands on look at the various topics she discusses. I am so glad purchased this break out!!

    I am in awe of Jennifer’s talent and ability to capture her children so effortlessly and beautifully.

    Her breakout series is amazing and helps share her wealth of knowledge for capturing those genuine moments of exploration, details and childhood. Being a whimsical/composite photographer, I struggle a little with photographing my own children in their natural element. I am so excited to put what I have learned to use with my own family as well as incorporating some elements with my clients. Definitely a brilliant breakout with a WEALTH of information. You won’t be disappointed.
