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?

Introducing our brand new workshop: GO OUTSIDE! I know it's been a while! A ton has happened between now and the last LYON-SHOP, Justin and I had new arrival to our family and have had to put things on hold for a bit. Recently we've received a TON of emails from people curious about our next LYON-SHOP date and figured it was time to get the workshop business going again! There will definitely be more LYON-SHOPs in the future, HOWEVER, this time around, Justin and I have partnered up with Matt & Angie Sloan of SLOAN PHOTOGRAPHERS to host a first ever workshop called GO OUTSIDE! 

The THREE DAY workshop will be held on March 28th-30th in Palm Springs, CA. Check out what the GO OUTSIDE workshop is all about by visiting our rockin' website!
Expect a ton to learn, share, inspire, & laugh about! We are SUPER excited about this workshop because we get to spend THREE DAYS hanging out with all of the attendees, teaching, business talk, guest speakers with vendors we actually use, chatting, one-on-ones, presenting challenges, and conducting a real shoot with a real couple!

Be sure to sign up ASAP as seats are very limited due to space!

For further info visit our website, send an email to or CLICK HERE to sign up ASAP!

Justin, Matt, Angie, and I are BEYOND excited about this, can't wait to see who makes it out!:)

What a neat idea! Some of the best photos are outdoors, and this particular shot with the couple in the middle of nowhere is just awesome! This will be a fabulous experience!
