While originally designed to be used in editing newborn photos, photographers have found this set to be a necessity for beautiful photographs no matter the age of the subjects. In fact, even portrait, senior, wedding, and wildlife photographers love the tools in this set!
Start by choosing one or more workflow actions to define your style. Then add optional haze overlays to soften the look. Correct discolored newborn skin, define eyelashes, and fix purple baby fingers or toes. Focus attention your subject by adding blur for a shallower depth of field or adding subtle vignettes. No matter how you choose to combine the actions in the MCP Newborn Necessities™ set, you’ll have all the tools you need for a complete baby and newborn workflow.
