giveaway day from Pretty Presets


Meet Laura Thomas, the very talented creator behind Pretty Presets and the co-founder of the new forum Rock the Shot. We ask Laura to tell us a little about her business...here's what she had to say.
"My love for Lightroom began when I started my own 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 initial collections. I knew I needed to speed up my workflow and wanted to be more proficient.  This is my wish for photographers, to save them time so that they can balance both their jobs and their long term goals.
Being the wife of a Soldier and a mother to two young children, enjoying 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 sometimes scarce. When my kids are awake, I want to spend quality time with them and leave the editing for naps and bed 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 with my husband and still run a business from home.
It’s exciting to know that photographers are cutting their editing time in half and having the freedom to do what they enjoy. I have been blessed to be able to work from home, in a field that I enjoy, and still have time to raise a family. I wish this for every photographer I meet. I look forward to working with you!"

  50. Wow, I can't wait to explore your store. I've become your fan for both sites. Super site from a mom in need of more family time. You may already have this somewhere but I'd love some tutorial, you-tube video or seminar that would provide us more insight as to how you save time in your work-flow and manage to create more mom time/family time. Thanks, Lisa Imagesbydesignstudios.com
