Helloooo friends!! I’m here at ShowIt UNITED in Scottsdale, Arizona, so I’ll keep this brief. I had the joy of leading/teaching a shoot yesterday afternoon on photographing the First Look- we had such a good time! So, nothing much to report here yet except the fact that I only brought two pairs of socks, and […]

  • Jean - Of course you are nervous and excited! Enjoy your time in AZ.ReplyCancel

I’ll be completely honest, I actually discovered this trick on accident! It’s a small little thing that has ended up making editing even faster for me, and you guys know I loving finding ways to streamline my process! After culling in PhotoMechanic by flagging all of my “keepers” with 5 stars (using the #5 key […]

  • Lindsay Campbell - Abby this is SO SO helpful! Such a simple trick… Thank you so much!!ReplyCancel

  • Shawn - Ah I use that trick :)

    You can also set auto advance on by default and the caps lock turns it off. I like your way better though because sometimes I go back through and don’t want to advance just because I marked a photo “red” which in my secret code means “Clone stamp the exit sign out!”ReplyCancel

  • Ana Isabel - Oh my goodness!!! This is SOOOO helpful! Thanks for sharing!!!ReplyCancel

  • Anna Bayliss - Thank you so much for sharing this! Sometimes my cat walks across the keyboard while I’m editing and then it started progressing to the next image after I hit the “P” button! I was so confused and had no idea what he had pressed to make that happen! So funny! Now I know – mystery solved! :)ReplyCancel

If you ever met these two, I know you’d love them just as quickly as I did. Their whole day was characterized by overflowing joy: bliss, as their relationship took on forever; delight, as their family & friends gathered to celebrate; elation, as the day they’d been planning and waiting for for over a year […]

He is just so in love with her. Those are my favorite kinds of wedding days- the sort when the groom can’t stop staring at his bride. When a first look leaves him at a loss for words, and her gaze drops from that pleased sort of bashfulness. That’s Bill & Greta for you- joyful at […]

Sometimes, you wake up on a Monday morning and all you want to do is stuff your face with chocolate, read a good book, and snuggle up with your puppies. And then other Monday mornings, you get an email from your friend Alicia with a link to your Christmas card photos, and all is right […]
