    1. OMG! The best

      I've bought several breakouts from ClickinMoms and this is by far the best one! She's in depth with her editing and the PDF is put together beautifully! Sally is one photographer I'd love to shoot with! on 4th Mar 2017

    2. Great Breakout!

      I really enjoyed this breakout and the natural way she edits her images. Her guide was easy to follow and informative. As a new business owner, this really helped me to feel more comfortable photographing children and getting expressions and natural poses that I love. on 24th Apr 2016

    3. Game changer

      Having been stuck in a rut and absolutely LOVING Sally's style, I decided to purchase this guide. There is an abundance of videos to follow and Sally goes into detail on every one of them. The pullbacks are sensational! This is exactly what I needed to give me that boost and change things up. Would highly recommend this to all and look forward to seeing more from Sally. on 17th Apr 2016

    4. SO many editing videos!

      Loved this! I found the editing videos really helpful and I find myself using lots of the techniques with all my images now. Great purchase! I was actually just buying another BO and putting it in my CM BO folder on my computer and realized that I had to write a review for this one since I love it so much. on 12th Jan 2016

    5. WoW

      I purchased Sally's BO earlier today and cannot believe what I have learnt through watching my first video! For the past year, I have drooled over various photographers' work whilst trying to work out how certain techniques are performed in PS. I've spent many hours scanning the internet in vain to discover these secrets and each search has been in vain until I found CM and your BO sessions. Thank you CM and thank you Sally for sharing your wealth of knowledge which most pro photographers hold close to their chest. Worth every penny... and more! Can't wait to go through the rest of the videos and pdf's. on 16th Dec 2015

    6. Priceless!!!

      I cannot say enough about this amazing breakout. I am at the edge of my seat while watching Sally Kate edit. She has so many amazing tips and tools. You MUST order this breakout if you are a child/family photographer! Thank you so much, Sally Kate and Clickin Moms! on 16th Nov 2015

    7. So much fun in Photoshop!

      I've taken many breakouts, and while I always learn something new, I have to admit: Hello, my name is Amanda, and I'm addicted to Photoshop. And I don't care. I love it. And honestly, no offense to any other breakout instructor, but since I only feel like I've grasped maybe 30% of what Photoshop has to offer, I feel like I already know much of the editing aspects of the BO's I've taken. I start to get bored with the editing segments..."been there, done that..." But not this BO - I learned so many tricks in Photoshop - from using gradients (so cool!) to automating your workflow (which is seriously going to change my life, y'all...) to fades and blend modes, and on and on... SallyKate packs so much Photoshop awesomeness into this breakout, it was well worth it. I was hesitant to buy it, since my style and hers are so different, but it's one of my favorites and I know I'll go back to it again and again. I also learned so many helpful ideas for working in full sun, which is fact of life with little kids. Really loved it and would highly recommend. If you're looking to take your editing skills to the next level, this is a must-have. on 27th Oct 2015

    8. Learned lots of new editing skills!

      Having been on CM for 4 years I've taken many workshops and breakouts yet I loved these videos because there was so much new information and on top of that you get actions and a great pdf. These videos helped me learn how to complete many of the creative edits that I couldn't ever figure out. I highly recommend purchasing this break out.

      My only nit-pick would be that I do wish more of the screen was used for the images in the editing videos. I like to watch them on my iPad but ended up using my computer where sometimes the picture didn't use anymore space than my iPhone screen. However, I would still purchase them again!!! :)

    9. Absolutely Fabulous Editing Videos!!! Game Changer!!!!!!

      The editing videos in this breakout are absolute perfection. Will take your editing up a notch!!! Took my photoshop skills up a level!!! Many many new skills to apply to a variety of images. The ingredients of each edit adds up to images that literally WOW. And there are over 15 videos to watch again and again plus a second Q and A video with more editing!!! She also generously gives you her workflow actions. on 22nd Jul 2015

    10. Get this breakout!

      I can't believe how much is included with this breakout. This is a game changer. I have just about every breakout in the CM store and this is by far one of my favorites. The pdf alone makes this breakout outstanding, but the editing videos put this in a league of it's own. The editing videos changed the way I edit and gave me so much confidence to make the vision in my mind and the image in front of me come together. After this breakout I started getting messages from other photographers asking me what I was doing differently, that my images had reached a whole new level. on 19th May 2015
