    If you want to get into documentary style photography you need this ebook! After downloading it and reading it, my creative juices began to flow. So many ahhh-haaa moments. The ideas in this book will keep your mind in its creative state. Thank you so much for this ebook and a renewed look on client and personal sessions!

    I have often found myself saying, not only to myself, but sometimes to my clients when I have struggled for poses- “I am not that great at posing”. I mean, they are paying me for my talent, right? Well, I wasn’t feeling very talented in those moments. It made me wonder if I really knew what I am doing! I would constantly beat myself up over feeling like I was failing them, and myself by not being “pose savvy”. How discouraging.

    Then I cracked your ebook open! Not only has it given me great insight, and direction, but it was almost like you took a stroll inside of my mind and gave life to how I have been feeling. Literally.

    I have known that searching for my next pose on Pinterest wasn’t what I wanted to be doing for the rest of my life, and with Session Sparks, I have the inspiration to follow my gut instinct.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and ideas, I am eager to begin implementing them into my work!

    I’ve just started my journey into documentary sessions and this book confirmed what direction I want to move as a photographer. It’s a great book to start jogging your brain on what documentary photography actually looks like and it’s a great first step into a big new world. I’m trying out some of the tips and ideas tomorrow with a close friend/longtime client and I’m so excited!

    Full of great ideas to spark your creative memory banks. I am so excited to use this in my business! These are types of session that make my feel alive while shooting pictures vs the same old same old that everyone expects! Thanks Marie Masse for starting this blog/business- it has come at a perfect time!

    I found Fearless and Framed through Facebook many months back and have loved all of your products which I’ve downloaded. I found it very hard to come across a site purely dictated to photographing with a documentary approach and most importantly to try and get your clients to see how much more interesting moments are captured through this manner. I hope to download more very soon as it has helped me greatly teach myself how to sell this approach. Documentary is king in my eyes. It’s natural, real and conveys the truth. Thank you for all your help so far and can’t wait to read more.
