In this module I go through a brief overview of Lightroom Classic. We head into both the library module and the develop modules. I go into detail on each panel that is available in the develop module, and what it’s main objective is during the editing process. 

A Lightroom Overview 


My goal for you in this module is to have you install your presets and local adjustments into Lightroom Classic. I walk you through a screen share where I show you how I have installed the presets and local adjustments on my Mac computer. If you don't have a Mac, don't worry, the instructions are very similar for Windows users, and are written in both your course guide and in the notes for this module. 

Installing the Presets


This module is foundational to understanding my editing workflow. I explain to you how there are three levels to my editing process, and I show you how to place yourself in a position to be among the top 5% of photographers in your niche. 

The 3 Level Editing Workflow


I’ve created 4 presets, and in the first video of this module you will learn how to choose which preset is best for your particular aesthetic and editing needs. 

In the second video for this module you will walk through a beautiful desert maternity session as I screen share the tutorial on a level 1 edit from start to finish. 

Level 1 Edit


This module goes over the methodology and techniques that are applied in the level 2 editing process. The small details and adjustments that we’ll make in level 2 create a big impact in our final photo. I screen share the tutorial on a level 2 edit from start to finish. 

Level 2 Edit


In this module I go through the level 3 editing workflow. There are two important things to note about level 3 edits. The first is that you need to have Photoshop downloaded from Adobe. The second is that level 3 is an optional editing level (but I explain this in more detail in your lesson). Don't let the idea of jumping into PS get you in a cold sweat- I've got you. I screen share the tutorial on a level 3 edit from start to finish. 

Level 3 Edit


Although the bulk of your course is complete it was too tempting for me not to share more. Enter Bonus content! In this bonus module you can:
  • watch me edit a newborn session
  • videos for 4 additional sessions that have varying skin tones on my clients, a variety of lighting scenarios, and different locations
  • and so much more!

the reviews

with a heart for capturing all of life’s fleeting moments- specializing in love-soaked editorial & lifestyle portraits of maternity, newborn, and family.

I’m known for finding the perfect balance between lifestyle and editorial photos with a sun-kissed dreamy photo edit. I’m sharing my photography practices with other photographers looking to achieve a new level of excellence in their photography business. I have a passion for community, vulnerability, and motherhood, and I have brought all of my talents together to create the perfect opportunity to pour my heart into my photography students.

When I’m not photographing or teaching, you can find me baking with my kids, dancing while folding laundry, snuggling my husband on the couch, and singing in the car (at full volume!).

We couldn't believe how easy and fun she made this session for ALL of us. The gallery arrived in record time and we loved EVERY. SINGLE. PHOTO. From the amazing experience to the stunning gallery, we loved working with Christine and can't wait to work with her again!

The gallery was stunning.

frequently asked questions

I understand that you may have had previous experiences with presets that didn't meet your expectations, but I want to assure you that my presets come with a comprehensive editing course. They have been customized to meet your signature editing style desires and prioritize radiant, sun-kissed skin tones. I believe that simply using a preset is not enough; we must understand how the preset is affecting our photos and how we can adjust those settings to achieve the desired results. With my course, you'll have the knowledge and tools to create truly stunning, eye-catching images every time. Plus, with my editing workflow, you'll have a clear roadmap to follow so that you can achieve consistent, dreamy edits every time.

I completely understand the demands of running a photography business, so I've designed this course to be efficient and easy to follow. However, I assure you that the few hours you'll spend learning from this editing course will save you countless hours of frustration in the future. The 3-hour course material is broken down into bite-sized chunks, so you can learn at your own pace without feeling overwhelmed or rushed. The time you invest in this course will ultimately give you more time to focus on other essential aspects of your photography business.

I know how hard it can be to stay motivated and committed to a course, but I am here to support you every step of the way. Plus, the private Facebook Group membership gives you access to a supportive community of fellow photographers who are as passionate and committed to their growth and success as you are.

My course addresses the pain points and challenges that photographers like you face during editing and provides you with the guidance, support, and tools you need to overcome them. My custom presets were created to do the "heavy lifting" in the editing process. When you adjust the presets after application, there are only so many sliders you actually need to work with to achieve your final edit. Throughout the course, I remind you which steps of my process are necessary and which steps are optional based on your style preferences. Plus, the workbook for the course is specifically designed to help you take actionable steps and reinforce what you've learned so that you can feel confident and empowered in your editing skills.

I understand that investing in your business can be a big decision, but think of it as an investment in yourself and your future. With the knowledge and skills you'll gain from this course, you'll be able to consistently book new and returning clients, raise your prices, and increase your business's financial goals. Too often, we worry about investing in our continued education. Still, I’m here to tell you that this investment will only bring you an elevated photography portfolio- resulting in more clients, increased prices, and a happier work life. I know you're fully aware of the value of customized presets and high-quality editing courses for photographers. And I also know that investing in both can be pretty expensive, so I've bundled my personalized presets and editing course together for a more affordable price. So, not only will you have access to my exclusive presets, but you'll also get a comprehensive editing course that's specifically designed to help you achieve the photo edits that you've been dreaming of. That's two investments in one package, giving you more value for your money.
