I’ve been itching to capture the beauty of everyday living. I usually keep my camera on my fireplace mantel so I can quickly grab a shot before the moment passes. (And because a quick photo here or there goes over much better with my boys than a big photography session.)
I can’t always get the look I am wanting in Photoshop, but I am happy with how these pictures turned out. I found a new set of actions that I love from Shutter Pulse. A couple of blog posts back I mentioned that I had downloaded their free set of 20 actions. I found myself using these free actions more and more. Shutter Pulse then offers $10 off their packages through their emails, so it is $29 for their set of 300 actions. I’ve yet to find a package so big for so cheap and since I was loving their free actions, I got a little crazy and bought the whole package. It was worth it. The vintage actions are my favorite. If you are looking for a great deal and a quick way to edit, this is a great route to go. (No affiliate links here with this one – just one mama photographer sharing a great find. If you have any photography advice for me, leave it in the comments!)
