    I love the breakouts with more than one instructor because you get so much information and different views on the subject. I struggle to capture good pictures of my husband with our children and after this BO, I was inspired to focus on even the little moments that will make for great memories for our boys one day.

    I love the variety of videos and the printable prompt cards was a great little bonus! Thank you ladies for a fun and informative BO.

    As a family photographer I know that Dads can make or break a session. I like to think that I have quite a few tricks up my sleeve, but I also realize that there is always more to learn. Enter Amanda, Jamie, Casey, Lucy and their incredible breakout, Photographing Fatherhood. These amazing ladies have created THE comprehensive guide to working with fathers! In my experience, dads aren’t always super excited to be in photos without a little coaching and this breakout will give you all of the tools to do that and SO much more!! Whether you’re a hobbyist or pro, if you need help working with dads I highly recommend diving into these materials asap!

    Love this breakoot ! We don’t see as much dads in pictures and I personally struggle having my own husband in pictures with the kids so this is a perfect subject to explore. This BO is so full of information for both our own family and clients. Different photographers and different approches and styles make for lots of different point of view on the subject so we can find what works best for us. Love that a lot of diversity of fathers and family are showed from first time newborn fathers to adult kids fathers and fathers of special need children, 2 fathers or single fathers families.

  4. Greetings from İstanbul. I live in the geography(Turkey) where birth/newborn photography is quite popular but photographers are overwhelmingly women. I’m not sure if this has a direct effect on the outcoming photographs. Anyway i feel it’s harder to capture the heartfelt pictures of dads-kids when you photograph them with their moms. In my opinioni no matter what kind of photography session is work on, the shooting dads have to be different from the classic mother-child approach. And this breraout is exactly about that. Thanks to clickingmoms who make this brealout possible.

    This breakout it so incredible! I love capturing my husband in the frame with all of my littles but this breakout has given me so much inspiration and tips to document him in a new way. I love all of the details and useful information from all of the presenters. This breakout is so incredible and I feel its a steal for all that you receive. It has me really excited to try some of the ideas presented. The PDF and videos are amazing and I plan to refer back to them when I feel I am struggling to document my hubby. Thank you so much ladies! This is such a wonderful resource and I am so happy I am able to learn from you all.

    I have SUCH a hard time getting my husband in front of the camera in a natural way, so I knew this breakout would be SO useful. But I was BLOWN AWAY with how amazing it is! The shooting videos, PDF, and idea cards are so inspiring, I cannot wait to photograph my husband with our kiddos when we go camping this week, and then again at home over the weekend. I also can’t wait to incorporate what I’ve learned into my client sessions as well! This breakout has something for everyone – whether you’re a hobby shooter or in business. If you’re on the fence on this one, definitely get it soon so you can capture your summer with Dad in the frame!

    Let’s be honest, dad’s can be a struggle to photograph during a family session.

    I love how this breakout give tons of tips and ideas for getting dads involved and genuinely HAPPY in the session!

    Hey, if dad is happy, the kids are happy which = great photos!

    There are so many shot ideas, and prompt ideas to get genuine reactions from dad and the kids!

    Just started going through this Breakout. In all honesty, photographing dads has been the most challenging for me than anything. Mostly getting them to cooperate, getting them to relax and letting go of the awkwardness is a real struggle! I am loving everything in this breakout! The tips on poses, the ideas on how to get them to relax; all of that is something that I cannot wait to try out myself. These photographers are all amazing and so unique in everything they do and you will LOVE this breakout! Worth every penny!

    I am just loving this breakout! I have been a fan of each of these artists and to have this awesome product that they collaborated on is priceless. I love the tips on how to get dads to loosen up and capture genuine shots showcasing their unique relationship with their kids! The sections on how to do this with older kids was especially helpful for me. Whether you shoot clients or your own family this is a great resource to have!
