about your presenter

In 2003 D’Ann Boal graduated with a master’s degree in education, but it wasn’t until her son was born and they moved to the Caribbean that she picked up a camera and never looked back. Photographing their quiet life by the sea inspired her photography journey. Today she runs a photography boutique specializing in newborn, child and family photography. Living on a farm in Colorado with her husband, son and daughter, she is inspired by capturing the light and magic of her children’s lives. She treasures her daily cup of jasmine tea, hikes with family, and long swims in the sunshine.

    D’Ann’s photography is a window into life’s most beautiful moments. This course, All That We Love, masterfully walks you through every angle of how to capture your precious memories through this exquisite medium. True to every thing D’Ann does, this course goes above and beyond what it promises. D’Ann takes the overwhelm out of the many elements of photography and gracefully opens her heart and brings her skills to the table to walk with you on this journey. You’ll also be given the gift of knowing D’Ann and her beautiful soul as she welcomes you in the back door and shares her secrets of illuminating the details that capture that moment in time you want to hold in your heart forever. She points out the elements that create magic and pop, focus and mood. This course gives you easy to follow steps, valuable tools, and immeasurable how-to’s right down to her humble tenderness saying, “Here’s where I started and what I did to create what I do now. I’ll be with you every step of the way.” She does exactly this. Just when you think “Oh, that’s interesting, now I understand how to create that effect with f-stops, exposure or shutter speed,” she’s right there to pick you up and take you to the next level deepening the pictures with lighting, colors, angles, posing, and editing. This course is a masterpiece delivering far beyond photography. It captures heart, meaning, and the reminders of the emotions behind the photographs. You will be blown away by the gift this provides and the blessing of knowing one of the most talented photographers as she shares her secrets so your story can start off shining!

    I’ve been a huge admirer of D’Ann’s photography for years and was thrilled to hear that she was doing a breakout. I knew it would be wonderful, but WOW, I didn’t know it would be SO WONDERFUL! Her 150+ pdf is literally bursting with useful information and beautiful images. Her shooting and editing videos are fun and effortless to watch. She’s an exceptional photographer, but she’s also an exceptional teacher – which is what makes this breakout so darn fantastic. Thank you D’Ann for every little detail you shared with us. This was by far, the wisest $50 I have ever, ever spent.

    D’Ann’s BO is one of these I’ve ever purchased.
    It is incredibly concise and in-depth from beginning to end. D’Ann takes you from inside her own camera-settings—how she sets everything up, alongside showing you how she works on her own photo sessions. She’s really covered everything. There are also videos on “how-to-in PS”, plus bonus material and she explains everything so welll. I’ve gained new skills, and look forward to adding what I’ve learned to my photography.
    Thank you D’Ann for putting together such a rich and informative break-out for us.
    I am so happy I’ve been able to be a part of this.

    Wow! The BOs just keep getting better and better. D’Ann not only takes heart-moving and jaw-dropping images, she went above and beyond my expectations to answer my questions and provide vital feedback on my photos. I learned so much in this class and highly recommend it to others. Her PDF was packed with good information and beautiful photos. I learned the most from her editing videos and helpful suggestions for individual growth. Thank you, D’Ann, for such an amazing experience and for your encouragement throughout the course.

    This is the first breakout I’ve done and it completely exceeded expectations. D’Ann was so thoughtful and thorough from start to finish in the materials to allow participants to reach “their own next level”. I’ve been inspired by her work, challenged by the exercises and encouraged by her feedback. I’d highly recommend it!

    All that we love, is exactly what I needed right now. The PDF is so jam packed with information, D’ann discusses everything from the technical aspects to composition to light, color, perspective, lenses, all with great pictures as examples. I especially love the section where she talks about lenses and how a lens choice can change the outcome of the exact same picture so dramatically. The creative exercises forces you to really think and slow down before you press the shutter! But I have to say the shooting videos are a hit with my family! My 5 year old daughter and my husband(who absolutely have no interest in photography) have watched these videos with me several times! We go over them at least once in a day. So glad I purchased this during the Thanksgiving break, I was able to work on lot of exercises and incorporate them in my pictures! You wont go wrong with this one!!

    I just finished reading through D’ann’s magnificent PDF. Not only did I find so much helpful information, I was just completely blown away with how much ‘LOVE” was expressed in her explanations. Between her beautiful quotes and her genuine authenticity of wanting to share her talent, I was re-energized to dig deeper within my own work. Her love for connection and capturing each beautiful moment is contagious. I found myself going back through pictures I have already edited and looking at them in a new light and perspective! It was like she somehow knew what unanswered questions I have had and had the answer already there! Thank you!

    I have just purchased D’Ann’s Breakout “All That We Love” and I have been enamored from the very start! The pdf is BEAUTIFUL and is something that D’Ann obviously put her heart and soul into. The material is put together in a systematic and meaningful way with fun periodic exercises to help the information sink in. And the images throughout this pdf will have that you swooning! D’Ann helps one see what is possible and teaches how to achieve the results with your own vision. I know I will definitely see photography with fresh eyes because of this Breakout! I highly recommend this Breakout! It’s truly worth it!

    All that we love–by Smittenandswoon is a phenomenal class and I can say that even if it was over right now–but I’m not even half way done! The ways it challenges your thinking and the tips on every detail of your photo, will be inspirational and helpful throughout your career. No one will regret this class. Taught by one of the best photographers I’ve seen who also happens to be super helpful and encouraging! Just do it…….

    D’Ann a true storyteller. Her images and words are infused with life and heart. Just reading through the first few paragraphs of her breakout filled me with inspiration. She truly balances magic and real life in the most beautiful way and shares that perfectly in this breakout. The pdf is incredibly informative, absolutely gorgeous and captured my attention until the very last word. She includes amazing exercises and videos to enhance the learning….she really shared so much! I am blown away and beyond thrilled with everything. I can’t wait to pour over all of this again and again and again.
