-Laura has a great story to tell!-

How it began
My love for Lightroom began when I started my photography business. My sessions started piling up, along with hundreds of images to edit. Somewhere between being overwhelmed and exhausted by the time spent editing; I started creating my own presets. I knew I needed to speed up my workflow, and by creating practical and pretty presets I would be more proficient. After creating most of the presets from Collection One and Two, I soon found myself in front of the computer less and enjoying my job more. I started editing my sessions in a day instead of a week. My clients were pleased, I was happy and my family was glad to spend more time with me again. When I shared my presets with fellow photographers, I received awesome reviews. They shared their pictures and most importantly they shared the amount of time they had saved because of the presets.

By saving time, I had more time to spend with my family
Being the wife of a soldier and a mother of two toddlers, my time with them is extremely valuable to me. When my husband is home, I don’t want to be sitting at the computer editing when time together is few and far between. When my kids are awake, I want to play with them and leave the editing for nap time. I have managed to use these presets to cut my workflow dramatically. This gives me the opportunity to stay at home with my children, have plenty of time for my husband and still run a business from home.

Here are some examples of pretty presets for Lightroom
