    I just want through the breakout, and I’m halfway through the videos.

    Posted by Paola Macouzet on 25th Jun 2018

    I just stopped to practice every time Karlee gives a tip on location, lighting or composition. She gives fabulous tips and on color as well. I never payed to much attention to my kids wardrobe and it surely makes a difference.
    I’ve purchased about 10 breakouts here on clicking moms and this one is one of my favorites for sure. Thank you Karlee for the amazing content.

    This breakout is filled with so much wonderful information.

    Posted by Amber Didier on 25th Jun 2018

    If you are a new or seasoned photographer, you will learn something new and be inspired. This breakout is especially awesome if you have young children and can’t always shoot at golden hour. Karlee includes so many pullbacks to show you how she turns locations the rest of us might have passed by into gorgeous photos. She shares her full process from conceptualizing an image through to the final edit. This breakout will have you looking at your everyday life and finding new and interesting ways to photograph it.

    I LOVED Karlee’s breakout!!!!

    Posted by Natalia on 25th Jun 2018

    Karlee teaches you how to create incredible images with less than perfect conditions and how to turn ordinary locations into extraordinary photos. It definitely helps you look at your home, neighborhood and surrounding areas in a different, more creative way. She includes a lot of information in her shooting and editing videos and it was extremely helpful to see the bonus behind the scenes pdf with all the pullbacks. Thank you Karlee for taking your time and for helping us find beauty all around us!
