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, so cool! 


I have designed every step of the action commands to adapt to your image. unlike some other actions or presets that leave little room for flexibility, LSP Actions are non-destructive to your background layer and the open layers included mean you can tweak, reverse engineer and adapt if you like to suit your tastes even further.

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

Absolutely! Though these actions have been designed to the highest professional standards and are indeed used by the pros, beginners find the panel is so user-friendly you can get started right away, wherever you are in your photography journey.

What is the refund policy?

Please note, this is a digital download. Once you purchase, you own and keep it for life so it cannot be returned... 


But equally, I'm not a monster, so if within 10 days of purchase, you don't love this set or have any issues at all, just reply to your order confirmation email so we can help you out. If you can send screen shots or a shot video to show any issue you might have, this will be super helpful and means we can help faster and make sure you get the very best out of this collection. 


AND, if you still don't love these actions after we have assisted you and you initially contacted within 10 days of order, then of course, we will refund you. Our customer happiness is the most important thing to us :-)


At LSP Actions, we pride ourselves on over 20,000 ecstatic customers, which has landed us number 1 worldwide for the "Best Professional Photographic Software" award the last 4 years in a row and placed top for customer service world-wide!

Once you purchase LSP Actions, you keep it for life! The files are available again to download in your account any time. Any problems, email us at hello@lsp-actions.com and we will quickly get a replacement out to you for free.

I've been let down by cheaper actions in the past, are these really worth it?
