I get so many questions about this session and how I go about editing my outdoor portraits that have those soft subtle greens, beautiful pastels all while keeping all the details. I figured it would be fun to give you a quick little insight on exactly all the adjustments that were made using Lightroom on this before and after image.

This is one of my favorites sessions, and I designed the entire Simply Delightful Lightroom Preset Collection around these images. It includes stunning presets to help you create something magical. Use discount SAVE15 to get this collection 15% off today!  


Here's a look at the before and after + ALL Lightroom adjustments I made to get it from the before to the after. I made absolutely no special brush adjustments to this image. Have fun trying out the adjustments listed below on your images!
