    Stephanie creates beautiful work. The PDF is amazing and packed full of snippets of information. The description of the break out is not really relevant to the content I feel. There was more focus on IPS and building session ideas using Pinterest boards. I feel that editing and an actual session should have been included in the videos as well, especially based on the title of the break out.

  • Erin Moore says:

    Great pdf – so packed with information, I can’t wait to read it again because it’s that good you have to read it twice! Brilliant and inspirational photography! For someone like me who is not creative in terms of props or styled shoots it was so neat to see the whole creative process from Pinterest inspiration boards to IPS! I’m wondering if I missed a video that shows Stephanie actually shooting a session, or if that isn’t part of this class? It would’ve been great to see the final photos from the Pinterest board pinning – or to following one session through from conception to IPS – but I’m not complaining – the information in that PDF was super comprehensive!

    • Stephanie says:

      Thank you so much for the great review Erin! The behind the scenes video was actually sent out last night, and shows the session that I planned for you all in my previous video! Hope you love it!

  • Tina Fisher says:

    I absolutely loved this breakout from Lemmonmade Photography! I’ve wanted to move in the direction of stylized photo shoots but just didn’t know how to get from point A to point B. I now feel like I have the tools to map out my first session! I feel like I have all the tools to market myself in this genre. Thank you Stephanie for all you provided in this jam packed breakout!

    Wow. I am completely blown away by this Breakout. I have always been drawn to LemmonMade images and was ecstatic to have the opportunity to learn directly from Stephanie in a small-group Breakout setting. Her PDF is full of the most amazingly beautiful imagery you can imagine, and it contains both inspiration and practical information that really teaches concepts at different levels. I was especially impressed with the behind-the-scenes look in to her Fairy Tale sessions, and the time and care she takes in making each session special and unique to the individual…each of these sessions is sure to be a child’s dream…and a parent’s treasure. She is extremely generous in sharing specific vendor information, forms, and basic business plans…as well as including how she shoots at home and keeps her own creativity alive. Stephanie is such a brilliant photographer/ artist, it is truly such an honor to learn from her…and this Breakout has sparked my inner creativity and direction in an entirely new way.
