    I purchased this breakout last year, watched a few times and loved it but today I watched it again…. how can this breakout still be so inspiring? Because Meg Loeks is amazing! I love how she explains the “hows” and “whys” she shoots and edits. She is super sincere and holds nothing back. She makes the whole process seams so simple by guiding you from the initial concept, choosing clothes and props, shooting in different conditions indoors and outdoors, and editing with so much depth and beauty. I can not recommend it enough. Thanks Meg for being such an inspiration for me every time I feel stuck and uninspired!

    This breakout is great and really got me thinking about light in new ways. It also made me think about photographing my children more purposely and trying to orchestrate an image without posing anyone.
