    Exactly as describes and beyond

    This is my first ever purchase here, and I've been dreaming of trying a breakout session for years. I fell in love with Cassandra's style on IG and her website and this session talks about her style, her editing, her approach to light and movement and is everything I hoped it would be. I'm very used to editing light, airy, fluffy images that my clients want...but this breakout session is the opposite - moody, emotional, raw images...just perfect. Cassandra does a full edit here with no presets, so don't worry about "what if she uses presets that I don't have?", she explains every step of editing and is so informative. I enjoyed this very much and will be rewatching and rereading this many times over. Highly recommended.

    I found this breakout very helpful when it comes to shooting.

    Cassandra has tons of tips and tricks that she shares regarding how to shoot and how to incorporate environment and nature, which is something that I love and want to do more of. I also love that she talks about shooting in different lighting conditions and how to rock them all, for instance in overcast weather. Adding movement is another thing that is covered in the breakout, and I have been out shooting different dresses and harir blowing in the wind all week! On top of that, the Breakout is full of eyecandy and such an inspiration. I am soo enjoying it!!

    I love her advice on incorporating natural elements and movement into sessions. I found the editing and shooting videos to be very insightful and I wish there was more of them! I feel very inspired by this breakout and I am excited to go out and find some of her magic in my own back yard.

    I first discovered Cassandra on Instagram. I adored her moody and beautiful images of her subjects in nature. She gives a detailed breakdown of exactly how she gets that look. She also gives real suggestions on how to tweak our own images and to create a more consistent portfolio. Thanks cassandra!!
