private editing services

As a private photo editor, my main goal is to get to know you, your brand, and your style so that I can help you through your workflow, get your images done quicker, and have them seamlessly match what you edit yourself. This allow you to spend more time doing what you love, whatever that may be. I know how hard it is to hand your images over to someone else. I get it totally, that's why I offer a free trial to so you know how I work and we can build that relationship.

This is when I'll send a questionnaire or schedule a zoom call with you to get to know your personal style, aesthetic and workflow. You can also submit up to 20 test images as a trial run with me.

You will sign your agreement with me then we will get you on the calendar! You will send me any desired session or wedding dates you know you'll. need help for. 

You will go through and cull your images and edit anchor images for each different lighting scenario. (usually these are your sneak peek or blog images) then you'll export your catalog and submit to me for editing and enjoy some much needed free time!

Gallery turnaround time averages 4-7 days depending on number of images, but can be rushed if needed. Once I send your gallery back, just reimport them to your LR and voila! You're done!

How does it work?

why choose me as your private editor?

I began my journey in photography a little over 12 years ago and over the years have accumulated priceless knowledge on editing techniques and programs. I use Lightroom, Photoshop, and Portraiture regularly in my own business so I am well versed in all of them. I also own and have used a variety of the most popular presets and actions in both programs. I have done more hours of education than I can count with top educators in the industry on business, shooting, and editing consistently. Looking through my site, you'll see I use a light, warm, but colorful style, but I'm here to match YOURS.

I don't take it lightly that you're looking for someone to outsource with. Trust me, I know how hard it is to let go a tad and let someone else touch your images. As creatives, those images are like our babies. That's why I take it seriously and do everything in my power to learn your style inside and out so that I am able to replicate work that looks identical to yours. The goal is that no one ever be able to tell that it was ever outsourced! I strongly believe in quality over quantity, so I limit the number of editing clients I take on. I want each client to have a personalized, seamless experience.

I've tried a TON of different editing styles, presets, and actions, but by far, my favorite is the KJ Preset Process. This isn't just a set of one click presets. They are so customizable and the step by step process really streamlined editing.

My personal go-to is using Bold I or II, then brighten shadows, add a little contrast and vibrance, and add the Honey warm with cooler greens. Then I tweak my oranges and greens how I like them, and voila! Magic. My editing goes a lot more in depth than this, but this gives me the perfect base to start with!

Again, through trial and error, I found myself trying out ShootProof for Client Galleries and I have definitely fallen in love! ShootProof makes it easy to set up perfectly on-brand galleries for my clients to view, share and choose their photos. I love that it is so user friendly for my clients and makes the whole process smooth for them. 

I love their automatic email campaign options, which make it easy for me to offer discount codes, share galleries, or offer additional purchase incentives for clients. Automating some of that really helps me streamline gallery deliveries and sales. Use my link to create a free account and give it a try!

One of the most daunting tasks in my business can sometimes be culling. Especially if I know I overshot photos or I have two other photogs with me and need to cull down their images as well as my own. I don't use this always, but when I do, its such a time saver!

AfterShoot is an AI powered culling software that learns your preferences while helping you automatically cull out things that would make you toss an image-like test shots, blurry or out of focus images, eyes closed or duplicate images. You of course get the final review, but the software is pretty spot on a majority of the time.

Gone are the days of the traditional business card...and for someone like me, who is terrible at keeping up with them, Popl was the perfect option! I've been using Popl for over a year now and it has been such a cool thing for my business. Basically Popl works as a digital business card platform. You an add all of your business related links to one home page, along with brandable QR codes, CRM connectivity and integrations. 

It's so simple to use too! You can get a variety of products from stickers for the back of your phone to keychains (which is what I keep on my camera strap!). When someone wants your info all they have to do is tap your popl with their phone and it automatically brings up your info. Then they save it, Popl sends you their contact info and boom, you have a lead to turn into a customer!
