OOPS ---- Looking for the article on Double Points Days? Sorry!!!! We linked the wrong article. HERE is the one you wanted.  (We're so embarrassed :P)


I've made a lot of presets. I kinda lost track at some point, but I think it's over 300 now (I think I *may* have an addiction.) Anyway, I have had many people ask me "which are your favorites?" I usually reply that it's very hard to narrow it down, since I use pretty much all of them from time to time, depending on the subject and the season and the mood I'm in. If I've just released a new set, that's probably what I'm using in my own work. But ever since I made the Soul Collection, it has definitely been getting the most attention from me-- especially when it comes to the images I capture of my kids and my day to day life. 

As I was looking through Soul edits from this spring and summer, it struck me that a lot of them used the same two presets: Strength (color) and Solitude (BW). 

I thought I'd show you a few examples of each so you can see why I love them so much! Comment on the blog below with your top two must-haves for a chance to win mine! (If you already own these two, I'll send you something else :)) I'll pick THREE lucky winners on Thursday, 7/9/15. 


I love the warmth of this preset combined with the exposure boost that seems to be *just* the right amount for my slightly dark sooc images. The contrast and vibrance make just about any image come to warm, glowing

life. I love that it's strong and impactful while still (I'm not sure exactly how) maintaining a certain softness that works so well for these personal memories of mine. 


I feel like this BW is the first one I truly, truly, fell in love with, and it's a love that just keeps growing. Others have come close (BlackPepper, HeyJude to name a couple) but this one has my heart. It's rich and full of emotion and just seems to fit with everything I'm trying to do with my images.

    I like “strength” because of the beautiful warmth it gives to images. I can’t edit without your brushes, they are so good. Shadow lifter is the best!
