about your presenter

Dallas Photographer Missy Mayo is known for her joyful and genuine family, child and senior portraits. Most days you will find her laughing at Mr. Mayo (her charming better half), playing cars/trucks/trains/insert-wheeled-vehicle-here with their all boy son, and kissing the toes of their spunky daughter. Fueled by a morning cup of joe (and the occasional afternoon indulgence), she spends her time playing with her family, working on the newest Pinterest craft, immersed in her Kindle, plotting an upcoming Girls Night Out, or behind the lens capturing priceless family memories.

    My favorite breakout so far !

    Posted by Daphné Lamontagne on 23rd Jan 2019

    I have bought several different breakouts since I joined CM but so far this one is my favorite ! It is has been giving me a better work method, orientation and structure. Missy’s explanations are very clear and she provides tons of valuable examples. The breakout is packed with information and material. For 35$ it is hard to beat ! I can’t recommend it enough

    The information Missy Mayo provided in the breakout was gold!!

    I’m so glad I hopped on the train early and got this baby for only $25. This breakout has me looking at photography in a whole new light and has given the blueprint to work on. If you’re looking to become more creative or if you’re having a creative block this is the breakout for you. If you’re just a mom who takes pictures your kids; this will be a great way to jump start your creative juices. Your IG timeline will come to life and so will your photo books!!
