How to create Bright and Airy Edits - Step by Step Instructions!

Photographers always ask me how I create such bright and airy edits without losing all the important details. Here's a quick step by step on how to do exactly that! I have Lightroom Presets available to create this exact look. (If you LOVE the bright and airy look then you'll love the 'Pure Preset Collection' or the 'Film Preset Collection'. Using presets speeds up the process but I think it's also important for people to learn how to do this by hand to achieve the exact look they have in mind for their work. 

Samantha Valencia from Samantha Valancia Photography posted an image in my Modern Market Facebook User Group asking for some feedback. I knew right away that we could bring her image to something really amazing using some very simple steps and I'm happy she said that I can share these steps with those of you who are also looking to learn how to achieve this sort of look. You can take these same steps in Photoshop or Lightroom.
