Trouble printing from Lightroom / Canon Pro-10 combo

Hi, I'm new to printing from lightroom (5.3 Mac) and am having no success. Prints come out very pinkish. Have resorted to exporting files as jpeg srgb and printing from Adobe photoshop elements. Canon Pixma Pro-10 with Canon Glossy Photo Paper GP-501 - Just small pics to send to family at present. Is there an online tutorial detailing how to print from lightroom that some kind soul can point me towards?
