The Perfect Light & Airy Lightroom Preset

If you’ve been searching for the perfect Light & Airy Lightroom Preset, your search is over! My Lightroom base preset makes it easier than ever to get the natural skin tones, crisp whites, and softness of film that you’ve been dreaming of!

Since the very beginning of my photography business, I’ve been known for my bright and ethereal editing style. I could never get on board with some of the trendy styles, like dark and moody or the orange skin tones. Give me light and natural! It’s why I created my own light & airy Lightroom preset!

I first learned that there were Lightroom presets you could purchase when I stumbled upon a company called Pretty Presets. This was circa 2014 and I excitedly spent so much money buying their presets and bundles. Certain they would transform my images!

Unfortunately, of all the presets I purchased, I was still disappointed in how much “fixing” I had to do after the presets were applied. Most of them add a “muddiness” that I couldn’t stand. Or unnatural hues and skin tones.

So, I stopped using purchased presets. I started editing every session manually to get the desired clean, natural, and film-like edit that I wanted. I found that I was doing the same tweaks every time, regardless of light setting….indoor, outdoor, studio….the base editing was all the same. So I saved these base edits as my own preset to easily apply.

Light & Airy Lightroom Preset – KLP’s Base Edit

Over the last 4ish years, this is the base preset I’ve used to edit every single image you see across my website portfolio and socials. Newborns, outdoor family sessions, heirloom children’s portraits, every single session type. After launching my first online course, The Art of Heirloom Portraiture , my students frequently requested access to my base edit.

While I knew it was perfect for my images, I needed to be sure it would work for other photographer’s images as well. So, numerous students sent RAW images to me to test out my light & airy Lightroom preset. The results were even better than I imagined!

“The preset is amazing!! When I sent the images to my daughter she was so excited and said “I want family pictures done in my house just like you did these”. She has never liked my editing style. So much so that she has used a different photographer in the past for their family sessions. Your preset won her over.”
