After a FOURTEEN month hiatus from our LYON-SHOP classes, we are SUPER EXCITED to finally announce, not one, but FIVE new LYON-SHOP dates in five different cities!

We never meant to take such a big break, but with adding a third kid to our family and moving, time seemed to fly! We are really happy to have the opportunity to offer this many classes to our possible attendees! More choices and more options! See the dates and cities below.

Seats are open NOW, so please visit our official LYON-SHOP site for more info about what to expect, OR you can even click on a date & city below to reserve your seat right away!






NOTE: Seats are limited to just 12 attendees per city and date! The total seat fee is $800. We'll collect half up front ($400) as a reservation fee and then the remaining balance is due two weeks before your LYON-SHOP date! Once you have paid the reservation fee you will be sent a registration form to make your seat official! All reservation fees are non-refundable.

Here are some of our favorite photos from the instructional shoots we conducted during our last LYON-SHOP that took place in Laguna Beach on May 19th, 2011!

During our instructional shoots we cover interacting and posing with our subject, shooting during difficult outdoor lighting, what lenses to use and when, as well as creative use of available light!

This will include topics like post processing, time management, marketing your business, where we grab inspiration from, building client relationships, snowballing your business, etc...

I have always wanted to attend one of your workshops and just last year, I moved to Mexico from Austin. I would love to attend the Dallas class. Too bad I don't have a job. I think it's great that you guys are branching out. Have y'all thought about making a book as well or doing videos?

Hey Amelia, I found you thru my sis-in-law (Rebekka Baldwin), who is friends with your sis-in-law (Jill!) ... Your work is absolutely amazing and I would love to participate in one of your classes! Any plans to come to NorCal with a class? If not, I will keep an eye on your HB class/availability. All the best, Summer

Many of my blog followers already know that I like to use TOTALLY RAD ACTIONS! to color tone my images, these actions help make my images look "RAD"-tastical and it's super easy to use, especially when you're using the RadLab to work these actions! I've also had a bunch of requests from followers to post the recipe I used on Jill's last maternity shoot. It also just happens that today is the LAST DAY to take advantage of the TOTALLY RAD ACTIONS! Mother's Day sale, so I thought I'd do a post featuring an actual mom along with the action recipe I used for this particular shoot (note: my recipes are constantly changing to fit the look of each individual shoot, that's the beauty of Totally Rad Actions!). Also, I have to say that I'm proud to be an actual "Radvocate" because 1. I LOVE the Totally Rad Actions! and 2. I get a little change in my pocket for each person that clicks through my blog to purchase their own actions or RadLab (the RadLab is worth every penny and beyond easy to use, don't worry, the lovely people over at TRA have a tutorial on their site that makes it even easier to use)!

Click here if you don't already have these amazing actions and be sure to use the discount code  MOMSDAY to get a $50 discount! What a great deal!

So here's the recipe I used for Jill's maternity session using RadLab:
1. Vanilla Kiss- opacity lowered to 30%
2. Blueberry Cobbler- opacity lowered to 20%
3. Get Faded Neutral- opacity lowered to 40%
4. Boutwell Magic Glasses- opacity lowered to 50%

I've been interested in TRACY for a while, but haven't bitten the bullet (I'm an amateur photographer and photoshopper). Would you recommend buying an action set first, or just skipping to the lab?
