    I found Kristin’s course on Storytelling to be so enjoyable! It was so much fun to look through her images in the PDF and watch the videos. She consistently had a wonderful use of light and her images were thought-provoking, with many of them bringing a smile to my face! I’d recommend this course for anyone looking to mark those moments in your everyday life with your children. Kristin showed beautiful images as examples on framing, shutter speed, and finding those storytelling details.

  2. Christina Tribble

    This has been the BEST breakout/self paced course I have ever taken. There is so much material in here it will definitely take not just your photography skills but editing skills to the next level. She covers so much I can’t imagine what a guided workshop would be like. Kristen if you create a guided workshop I would sign up in a heart beat. Thank you so much for taking the time to create such a strong and powerful course. It was truly impactful!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Christina, thank you so much for such a wonderful review! I am so glad you enjoyed the course and found the material helpful. It was such an amazing opportunity to partner with Click Photo School to teach my approach. Thanks for joining me!

  3. I took the course to learn more about storytelling. The pdf is filled with beautiful photos and so much helpful content that can be applied to any type of photography. I’ve already read it three times and know I will be referring to it often. The videos are also filled with so much information on Kristin’s process, culling and editing. As someone that doesn’t have kids and rarely shoots photos of people, I would recommend this course to anyone.

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Kerri, thank you so much for the kind words! I am so glad that I was still able to teach the storytelling process in a way that you could use it, even with not having children and people as subjects. I have really enjoyed seeing the work you are sharing on the forum. Thank you for joining me!

  4. I needed inspiration to pick up my camera again, so this breakout was offered at the perfect time! It was great to watch Kristin go through the entire process of a photo shoot to culling images to editing images. Thank you, Kristin, for sharing your talents with this community! I know I have benefited from this course and I am excited for my photography to improve!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Melissa, I am so glad my class provide inspiration at a time when you needed it. That was my main goal when creating the content. Thanks so much for joining!

  5. Absolutely loving this course, it is by far the best value course I have purchased from Click! (and I have done quite a few!) Such a great resource to capture the everyday in an authentic but artistic manner.

  6. I only started the course last week, so haven’t worked my way through all of the videos just yet, but I am really enjoying what I’ve done so far! The PDF e-book in itself is awesome, its really well structured and full of inspiring images, tons of helpful tips and information on such as composition, lighting and color in storytelling. The videos so far have been clear and easy to follow! Highly recommend!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! I’m so glad you find the material easy to go through and are finding inspiration! I appreciate you joining me!

  7. This is a good course for people who have pretty good manual camera mastery but want to get better at creating storytelling images. The PDF e-book is full of gorgeous, inspiring images, and has lots of great compositional tips. Her shooting videos show that even with small kids who don’t always do exactly what you had in mind, you can capture real life moments that are beautiful. I appreciated learning about her use of supplemental lighting even in “natural light” scenarios because that isn’t something I’m currently doing, but seeing the way she used it was really helpful. The editing videos were helpful as well. I’m very comfortable in Lightroom but I learned a thing or two!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Dava, thank you so much for the kind words! I’m so glad you have joined me and are enjoying the course materials provided.

  8. This workshop is really good for those starting out in storytelling or also some photography basics. Kristin covers many of the key elements required creating amazing images — from colour, to composition, and lighting. It’s packaged nicely in multiple small videos/sections. She’s covers quite a bit of tips/tricks too, including colour adjustments in Photoshop and skin tone RGB in Lightroom, plus much more. This course is definitely worth a look!

  16. Storytelling is one of my favorite aspects of photography. Kristin does a great job of breaking down so many different aspects of how to go about taking true storytelling photographs. I also simply love seeing her images throughout the pdf in the breakout. Every image I see is so good and truly inspiring!! I appreciate Kristin taking the time to make this, and so many simple suggestions for how to make stronger images for the everyday Mom (or Dad or whoever). I’m saying all of this and I haven’t even made it beyond the pdf yet, so I can only image how awesome and helpful the videos are about to be!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Ali, thank you so much for sharing these kind words! I’m glad you have joined me and are enjoying the materials. I love seeing the storytelling images that you are sharing with our community.

  17. I always run behind in the classes I sign up for, but photos tell so much. as the quote goes a photo is worth a thousand words (at least!!). I love the posts by my fellow students to keep me in line with the classes progression, I learn and WILL WILL apply. Kristin interacts with us too. The course gives easy tips to follow and her examples help to clarify if you can’t follow directions to improve your photos. SO WORTH IT.

  18. I am loving this course by Kristin! It is packed full of so many gems on how to add more storytelling to your photography- something I’ve been wanting to work on for a very long time! This was just the creative push I needed, especially at the start of a new year. Thank you, Kristin for creating such a beautiful class. You have an authenticity about you and your work that I just love!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Holly, thank you so much for the kind words! It’s really been such a pleasure putting together this course to teach something I love so much! Thanks you for joining me and actively participating. I’ve enjoyed seeing the images you share.

  19. Can Kristin teach an old dog new tricks?! Yep, I’m certain she can. I’ve just started scratching the surface of her class and can see I’ve been stuck in a creative rut for a while.

    I’ve been shooting since the Jurassic Age, film and slides! I graduated to digital when it came along, but have only used the basic Photoshop technics and haven’t given Lightroom a chance. So I can see an added bonus, learning more about those programs in this class. My photography interests have been mostly cars and boats.

    However, I now have four grandsons and plan on using these tips and techniques to tell their story.

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Thank you so much for the positive feedback. I’m so glad you are giving Lightroom a try. It really is a great program and fairly easy to use once you get the hang of it! Thanks for joining me and enjoy capturing your grandsons. You will be so happy you did!

  20. I was first drawn to Kristin’s course because I want to become a better storyteller in my everyday shooting. I also love seeing her work on instagram and her use of storytelling in her vibrant images and knew I wanted to learn from her! All of the editing videos are hand edited which is nice to see how she processes the images without using presets that you may or may not have. The shooting videos were helpful in seeing everyday scenarios with her kids and how she could get fun and interesting pictures of her kids with just a little bit of planning- this was particularly encouraging with having young kids of my own. I love how she broke down in the course in many helpful and thorough videos and didn’t leave no stone unturned. I’m looking forward to going through the exercises in the pdf and am inspired to shoot!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Angelina, thank you so much for the kind words. I am glad you found the course so informative and inspiring. I’m so happy I could share my knowledge and storytelling approach. I really look forward to seeing your images and spending the next couple weeks with you. Thank you for joining me in this self-paced course!

  21. Moving so quickly through this amazing course because it’s just so good!! Kristin has loaded the ebook and videos with so much inspiring information. It’s so helpful and fun to go through.
    I was immediately drawn to Kristin’s storytelling images when I first found her so I knew this course would be a must to go through. She clearly goes through her process of how she captures her everyday moments with feeling and down to culling and editing.
    It’s giving me so many new ideas and shows you how simple it can be.
    Thank you Kristin for your time and care you put into creating this!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      You are so welcome and thank you for the wonderful feedback. I’m so glad that my course is inspiring ideas for you! Thanks for joining me and I’m really looking forward to what you share.

  22. I haven’t made it all the way through this course yet, but the PDF alone is pure gold. Kristin touches absolutely every aspect of photography and her links back to storytelling are so interesting. I wasn’t expecting so much content on editing, I can’t wait to dive further into her fantastic videos. She breaks down her editing process in such a clear and easy way, it great to follow along with!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! It was really fun for me to put this material together, especially since it’s about something I enjoy so much. I’m so glad you joined me and I’m really looking forward to seeing what you create.

  23. This course is just wonderful! The material is so informative and Kristin teaches in a way that’s comforting, encouraging and really makes you feel like this is doable. The materials so provides have so many examples and is beautiful to look at as well. I can’t recommend this course enough!

  24. Absolutely love this breakout! I learn much better through videos and I really appreciate the amount of material that has been presented in that format. I got into photography to take pictures of my kids and am more drawn to the lifestyle/storytelling aspect and I have been devouring this breakout. This is definitely one do the best breakouts I’ve purchased. Thank you!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Kavya, thank you so much for the kind words! I’m glad that you like the videos that I included in the course material. I find videos to be very helpful in the way I learn, so I wanted to provide this for my participants. Thank you for joining me!

  25. This is a great course with excellent, high quality materials. The eBook and shooting and culling videos are so helpful!
    Kristin, thank you for putting so much work into this course.

  26. Kristin, the quality of your class materials is great and I really enjoyed the eBook! The shooting and culling videos are extremely helpful. Thanks for putting so much work into this course.

  27. I am loving this class! I got in to photography because of the concept of storytelling through pictures, so any chance I have to learn and gain more, I take the chance! And Kristin always has some awesome storytelling images! So, I knew this would be great!

    I love the format of the class- it is very video heavy, which is super helpful for me! I get to see her doing the shooting, the editing, and it makes it easier for me to glean all I can! It is one of the best breakouts I have gone through, so definitely take it if you get the chance!

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Thank you so much for the kind words. I do better learning through video, so I’m glad you appreciate that portion of the material provided! Can’t wait to see your storytelling images!

  28. What a great course on storytelling! It’s a MUST if you have kids. What I love is that Kristin makes storytelling simple. She makes it feel do-able! It doesn’t have to be rocket science. She so clearly breaks down the elements of storytelling and composition. I also love seeing her process in her shooting, culling, and editing video. She offers great tips (like what aperture to use when shooting from above and how to correct color casts). And she shoots in a variety of lighting conditions. I had many “ah-ha” moments. It’s also very relatable to see that her kids bounce off the furniture too, LOL. I know I will return to this course material again and again.

    1. Kristin Vukcevic

      Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback and kind words! I’m so glad you are enjoying the course and materials. Yes, my kids are very wild…….they keep me on my toes when shooting and in general! Looking forward to seeing all your storytelling images.

  29. I haven’t even completed the course yet, but I wish I had this information when I had first picked up my camera. Kristin does a wonderful job explaining how each choice can impact the story you are trying to tell so that you can compose the best storytelling image possible. I appreciate that she showed that you can create beautiful storytelling images no matter what gear you have. If you’re looking to tell better stories with your photos, I highly recommend this course.

  30. As a busy mom of three kiddos I found this course equally helpful and inspiring! There is a ton of great information but not so much that diving in feels overwhelming. I lean toward portrait photography and am always waiting for the perfect light to start shooting. This course has inspired me to keep my camera close by and given me the tools to capture the everyday moments that make motherhood so special. Kristin is a truly gifted photographer and I am so grateful she took the time to share her knowledge in this wonderful course! 

    1. Emily, thank you so much for the kind words and feedback! I’m so glad you are enjoying the material and I’m really looking forward to seeing your everday captures.

  31. Marion Brouillard

    I am truly enjoying this class! I love the storytelling Kristin captures with her three little boys. They are so adorable! Kristin is a natural at storytelling. Her course is easy to follow, with awesome videos and psf’s that clearly map her process for storytelling. If you are looking to up your game with photography, I highly recommend this course.

    1. Thank you so much for the feedback! I’m glad you find the course materials easy to follow and inspiring. Having the knowledge and skills to capture my children’s childhood has been very rewarding and I’m so happy I get to share my process with others.

  32. I just started this course last night, and it is amazing! I can’t wait to see how much I learn by the end of the course.

    1. Amanda, I’m so glad you are enjoying the course and thank you for your feedback! I can’t wait to see the storytelling images that you share.
