What do you do to make your photos look like that?

Although sometimes it just magically happens, normally lots of factors go into creating a beautiful image. I use a variety of Adobe Photoshop actions, some that I’ve created and some that I’ve purchased from boutiques like Red Leaf Studios and Lily Blue. What gives my photos their unique look is the way I light and color treat each image. However, I rarely use any action to it’s full capacity. I also shoot with mostly available light so the photos have a more natural and dreamy quality.
