Fun&Fast Little Special | Serendipity Action

June 7, 2010

If you haven’t purchased my A Little Sugar set (huge set), there is an action in there called Serendipity. (this action is not for Elements) It is my most commented on and most popular action from this set. It’s also one of my absolute faves as well. This is going to go fast, so be quick!

First person to write the definition of ‘serendipity’ on my Facebook fan page wall- gets a free download link for this action. I will PM you and ask for your email address and send you a free download.

Everyone else gets a chance to buy it for $3. I have it capped at 10 though. So be fast! You can only buy it here off the blog, you must use the code “niftyfifty” to get it for $3.

UPDATE- The FREE set has already been won. But please feel free to buy the action all by it’s little old self. Not something I will do often. <3 There are only a couple downloads left! :)

AMP Action Freebie | Morning Cartoons | PS & PSE

June 6, 2010

Finally back to offering freebies sometimes. :) I love sharing! Here is one action of a new freebie set I created called Lazy Saturdays. I’ll release one action at a time- over the Summer. So be sure to collect them all. :)

This one is called Morning Cartoons. It’s just a fun little color pop with a kiss of colorful haze. Delicious and fun! Enjoy!

This action comes with a PSE and a PS version. Make sure you install the correct one. The one labeled as {PS} is NOT for Elements. You will need to add it to your cart and checkout like you were buying it. But don’t worry- it’s free. 😉 Thanks for trying AMP Actions!

AMP Vintage Recess | My Newest Vintage Actions

June 3, 2010

AMP Vintage Recess actions are here! Nine very different actions- a little vintage or a lot of vintage. You pick. Dial it all down for just a whisper of vintage or crank it up and throw down the vintage glove. Really fun actions. My testers have used them on all sorts of images. I love them on flowers, vintage children images and have seen my testers use them on some pretty cool & funky couples images – you know the ones with the vintage cars and clothes and attitude? Yep those. They really look awesome on those- especially I Spy and Double Dutch. And seen some of them on some sweet not so vintage couple’s images.

I Spy and Kick the Can are pretty vintage, while Four Square just adds some pop with a litttttle vintage flavor.

    I love, love, love your Recess set, Amy. Double Dutch was by far my favorite and I used it on my latest session. Gorgeous stuff!

Newborn Collection | Redding Newborn Photographer

June 2, 2010

I love babies! So much so that I had four of my own. Their tiny wonderful fingers and toes…sleeping or awake so cuddly and soft- mmm!

This month as I try to build up my Newborn Portfolio, I am offering a special on my Newborn sessions. Normally $400 for my smallest package- I am offering a special Newborn Collection to get images for my portfoflio and you get great value for your money. Beautiful treasured memories and prints for a small investment and I get gorgeous images to use in my portfolio. A total win win!

I am only offering a few of these, so book now. Twin Collections are a special price as well at $200 and everything else remains the same although you will get 10 gift prints and 20 proofs in your private gallery. Please book before you are due to lock in this amazing price- I will book out at this price through August, but you have to book it in June to lock the price in. No exceptions. If you know someone who is expecting, please send them on by or better yet- purchase a Gift Certificate to go towards this Collection.

For Redding, Anderson and Cottonwood areas only. Areas that fall outside these cities, there are added travel expenses. <3

Please contact me at amy@amymcmaster.com for session details, questions or to book your session.

I look forward to hearing from you! 😀
