Thanks for your time!!

I know she does offer mentoring sessions but unfortunately she doesn't have any available until mid January and so I thought I would see if anyone could point me in the right direction!

Thanks again
Well... the website author, Michelle, states:

"The colors were given a pop and the focus was drawn closer into the beautiful subject by darken the background, but not going too dark, which would have been too unbelievable and out of place."

She's pretty much laid it out here, without going into specifics. In all likelihood, you're looking at a contrast boost and saturation increase. The background was darkened and the focus on the subject was "artificially enhanced" by slightly blurring background elements. Sharpening was certainly applied to the subject.

That pretty much does it. Most full-featured editing programs should be able to pull this off.
