Meet the creator

Hi, I'm Lauren.

In addition to being an international award-winning newborn and portrait photographer, I’m also known for being an over-achieving, Photoshop obsessed (cheese-addicted, geeky, over emotional, dog loving) mother of four. 

This huge action, preset and overlay collection contains my own personal editing steps used to create these sentimental storytelling portraits, wrapped up in a versatile, intuitive download. Everything here is user-tested to work on all images. It’s no matter if you shoot raw or jpeg, they will work just as beautifully. My goal when creating these tools was to help other photographers—both amateur and professional—feel confident in their work while saving them the immense hassle of editing from scratch, second guessing and starting over. Sounds too good to be true? Just ask any of the 14,000 users worldwide or, check out a few of our latest awards...

What are Photoshop Actions?

Photoshop Actions are a series of pre-recorded editing steps that you can "play" over your image using Adobe Photoshop on your computer. It's like watching an invisible editor take over your screen for a fraction of a second to set up all the layers you need.

You need your Photoshop Action panel and layers panel open.

I have designed every step of the action commands to adapt to your image. LSP Actions leave 100% room for flexibility and are non-destructive to your background layer. The open layers included mean you can tweak, reverse engineer and adapt if you like to suit your tastes even further. If you do not have experience in using Photoshop actions, please refer to the LSP online video tutorials. You can also find more information about using Photoshop Actions on Adobe's website here.

What are Lightroom Presets & Brushes?

Unlike Plug-ins, Extensions or other External Image Editing Softwares, Lightroom Presets are already a built-in feature of LR. Presets help speed up and streamline your editing by applying a set series of editing steps over your image.

Lightroom Presets are saved settings that allow you to apply an edit to your image in one click.

The LSP presets are designed to be mixed 'n matched together for infinite possibilities. The specific blends and mixes of settings use mean you can find the perfect look for you image in just a few clicks, each edit will be unique depending on your tastes and style.

You can use these presets for a complete edit, a part edit or only sometimes - it's up to you! 

Lightroom Brushes are similar to presets but rather than effecting your whole image, you can select a brush and paint it just over a single area (such as face or clouds). Lightroom brushes are currently only able to be used with Lightroom Classic or Lightroom CS4-6 as other versions (such as mobile) do not have the capability of saving a brush preset. You also have a folder containing the brushes for ACR.

If you do not have experience in using Presets, please refer to the LSP online video tutorials. You can also find more information at Adobe's website here.

I'm a beginner, is this suitable for me?

Though these LSP Photoshop Actions have been designed to the highest professional standards, many beginners find these so user-friendly.

It is important to have a working knowledge of Photoshop for best results as the actions require some experience in using the Photoshop actions and layers panel.

The video tutorials walk you through step by step. I recommend watching the video tutorial first if in doubt to see if it is something you could do.

Please note: A working knowledge of Photoshop means you will be able to get started quicker in using these. If you are a complete beginner, please follow the video tutorials step-by-step. Lauren at LSP Actions cannot personally walk you through using these, but support is provided in the LSP Actions Facebook Group.

There is a lot of information online about using Photoshop actions, layers and brushes at

Will this work in my Language? 

LSP Actions have been designed in English.

There is no auto-translation of the Photoshop Actions, layers or file names into other languages - these will all be displayed in the English Language.

LSP will work best for you if you have an understanding of the English language. It does not auto-translate.

The tutorial videos are also in English, but if you switch on subtitles [CC] in Youtube, you should hopefully be able to read these in your language.
