ON1 Workflow – Saving Time in Post-Production

Having a smooth workflow can have a huge impact on the time you spend in post-production. In this video, I want to share my personal workflow for Bliss Studio. I have found faster ways to cull through my images and get them prepped for clients to view. I’ll take you from the beginning of the process, through adding presets, all the way to exporting them out for both web and final prints. It is always good to find ways to improve your workflow as even small changes can have the impact you need.

Celebrating Dads!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and grandpas out there! It is a perfect day to not only celebrate Dad’s but to celebrate relationships.  I enjoy being able to photograph my husband with our kids embracing the things that they love to do together. If you have little ones, ask them what their favorite things are about their dad or what they love to do with them? If you asked my son, Lennox he says giving Daddy hugs (he’s three).
