simple, sweet, and classic

I love when my clients trust my process and my creativity. My client came to me for simple, sweet, and classic maternity images. We started off the session by doing just so. Then we began to talk and I started to learn more about what my client really wanted and thought about doing …but shied away.  Just then the curtain came down from my windows ( like literally ) and we started to capture whimsy, genuine and authentic images.

Photographer tip:  light and airy presets and whimsical outside presets

Calling all Lightroom preset lovers… PSP presets are ready for use


I am so excited to share with you my exclusive Hello Storyteller double preset release ( Yes, there is not 1 but 2 collections I am releasing ). I have worked so unbelievably hard on these and poured my heart and soul into each collection so they would work almost flawlessly with most photographers /style /camera etc…

These presets are designed to make your workflow much easier. Not all presets end up being 1 click. You may have to slightly tweak. That is completely normal. You may even find you making the same tweak over and over again. If that is the case you can update my preset with your new tweak.


I love all things whimsical, light, and airy. These presets will bring this whimsy into your stories whether they are captured at home or in-studio. Additionally, I have added a radial filter into each preset in this collection, which I have personally developed to give each image that extra “pop”. You can move it around, expand or make it smaller, or simply delete it – whatever feels right for your own images.
