    Amazing results in the shortest possible time. Less than 12 hours ago I purchased MCP Actions and I can’t believe what a difference these have made to my baby photography already. I can’t thank you enough – best purchase I have made and so easy and delightful to use. I sometimes struggled with the skin of new borns to make them look flawless (yet untouched), but not any more. I just sent a few of my first trial photos to one of my clients and she is ecstatic with the results, and so am I.

    AMAZING “ñ all in one package newborn set!I finished a newborn session with a particularly red blotchy baby”_ I was scared to dive into editing so I thought I’d see if there were any handy dandy PS actions out there”_ What a great find!Not only is there actions for a red baby, but a ton of other actions that can be used for any session.. (family, wedding etc)I can’t thank Jodi enough for this time saving and beautifying set! THANK YOU!!!

  3. Laura Myers Photography on October 14, 2014 at 5:35 pm

    Best Actions Ever!I have tried MANY “designers” actions and didn’t find any I loved until I used MCP actions! Newborn Necessities is easy to use and has cut my editing time in half! The results are amazing! I use them on almost all of my photos from babies to brides and everything in between :)I have used a few different sets by MCP and while I love them all, Newborn Necessities is my absolute favorite! Thanks Jodi for creating such amazing actions!!!

  4. Lynn Burgher of LMB Photography on October 14, 2014 at 5:38 pm

    What did I do without Newborn Necessities?I take newborn pictures at the hospital so the babies that I am working with are anywhere from 1-3 days old. That means many red, yellow, blotchy babies. There are also time issues as the turnaround from shoot to show should be within an hour. Newborn Necessities has been my go to action set on all of these shoots. I don’t even need to use anything else. My most used action from the set is sugar and spice and eyes wide open.These actions aren’t just for newborns, I use them on all my portraits: families, seniors, children, babies, etc. I love these actions and really can’t imagine editing without them. I also can’t believe they ONLY cost $149. Thanks MCP.

  5. Jane on October 14, 2014 at 5:38 pm

    Favorite action Set!This is by far my favorite set of actions”_The tones are amazing and work perfectly with babies, but are versatile enough to bring equally amazing results with anything or anybody. These actions work great on people of all ages. There’s not a photo that I take that I don’t use at least a little bit of newborn necessities in. I love its corrective abilities! Definitely the best action set I own!

  6. Laci on October 14, 2014 at 5:39 pm

    I love the newborn necessities actions for photoshop! They are everything I need to produce wonderful newborn portraits. I even use the actions for my other photo sessions!

  7. Meghan on October 14, 2014 at 5:40 pm

    Just what I wanted!I was a bit hesitant to purchase this newborn action set, even after reading all of the stellar reviews, simply because I am not huge on obviously edited photos. I am so glad that I did! This product is incredible and I love the simplicity of each action and that I can make my final product as subtle or as out there as I want it. My editing time has been cut in half and I’m sure once I get my flow with this new product, it will be cut even more.

  8. Heidi Radford Photography on October 14, 2014 at 5:41 pm

    No regrets!!I was asked to do my first Newborn session a couple months ago. I contemplated getting the Newborn Necessities Actions “î what if that session was the *only* newborn shoot I’d ever have. I asked the MCP Group what they thought and everyone who owned the action said it was great. Jodi even commented and was very honest and said I could probably just do my own hand edits and then if I ended up getting more newborns down the road and my budget allowed it, to go ahead and purchase it. Well, I didn’t listen to her and instead went ahead and got it right away 🙂 I’m so glad I did. I live in a small community where there aren’t a lot of newborn photographers. My newborn photos keep getting shared and I’ve already had 4 newborns in 2 months with two more on the books. I credit 100% of this to these actions. There is no way the baby’s skin tones would look as good as they do without these actions. That alone is worth it. In addition to the skin tone tools there are several other great actions within the set. Love it!

    You’ve thought of everything!Wow. Wow. WOW. I am dying over this set. It is beyond awesome. You thought of everything and every situation relating to newborns and provided an action to enhance or fix. Jean Smith Photography

  10. Alisha Robertson on October 14, 2014 at 5:42 pm

    My workflow is about to charge”_ awesome actions.These are super awesome actions. These are the best laid out, organized, easy to use actions. My workflow is about to change big time.

  11. Laura Yates Photography on October 14, 2014 at 5:42 pm

    Just Get It!! Worth Every Penny!I was a little on the fence about purchasing this action set because I have plenty of other MCP actions (Complete Work Flow, Bag of Tricks, Fusion, and Ultimate Portrait Package) and I was worried that I may get similar tools to what I already had between my other action sets. After FB messaging MCP and getting some clarification, I went ahead and bought the set. Let me just say- it is by far my FAVORITE yet. Everything you need to edit your session is right at your fingertips. I’ve edited one session with it so far and it cut my editing time in half. So thrilled with this set. THANK YOU JODI!!!

  12. Lorra on October 14, 2014 at 5:44 pm

    What a time saver!I bought the Newborn actions because I have two very large newborn orders to fill. Even though I can correct things like redness and dry skin, I also know they can be time consuming to do it well and keep things from looking “overly retouched.” I knew your actions would be a time saver, but I had no idea just how much I would love them. They transformed my little guy in no time, and considering that TIME IS MONEY these will pay for themselves by the end of this weekend. I was satisfied with my “before” edit and my clients would have been happy, but now I LOVE it and the little guy’s parents will be blown away. Thank you for a wonderful product.

  13. Ashlie Dobbins Photography on October 14, 2014 at 5:45 pm

    These are AMAZING!!!Holy smokes!!! These actions are awesome! As a “new” part-time photographer, these actions made my images look so polished and beautiful. Cuts the time spent editing TONS!!! Great job MCP”_ And THANK YOU!!

  14. Shanna Rae Photography on October 14, 2014 at 5:45 pm

    By far the BEST newborn editing set available!I can’t say enough awesome things about this set. I am completely obsessed! This set makes it so easy to get everything from skin tones and lighting, to sharp eyes and that perfect hint of color. I find myself wanting to edit every night using this set because the possibilities are endless. Thank you for another amazing action set Jodi this photographer is totally hooked!!!

  15. Florencia on October 14, 2014 at 5:45 pm

    Saving soooo much time.Thanks to your new pack my newborn photographs have reached a new level!I’m saving so much time! And they are jus perfect!!! Congrats! Huge fan from Argentina.

  16. Tanya Skeoch Photography on October 14, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    Amazing!Just bought this action set about an hour ago and all I can say is WOW!So easy to use and the results are just amazing. Worth every darn penny! Thank YOU Jodi!

  17. lilmisssween on October 14, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    amazingI’ve bought so many actions, and downloaded so many freebies. I had just about given up. These actions are so amazing. Wow. So natural and clean edit looking!

  18. Francine on October 14, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    Newborn Necessities are all you need!I’ve been buying actions for the 2.5 years I’ve been in business, so the last thing I “needed” was more actions. Still, I could not find my happy place in newborn edits. There is no doubt the money spent on Newborn Necessities is worth every penny! Jodi has broken down the set into well organized groupings including everything from skin and color actions to sharpening and color cast correcting. These actions are going to replace most of my other actions without a doubt. Thank you, Jodi, for making me look good and making editing so much faster!

  19. Melissa on October 14, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    Just amazing!Wow, wow, wow!!! I just bought your newborn actions and I’m in LOVE. It works well on newborn and all types of pictures.

  20. Lisa on October 14, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    Brilliant!What more can I say? These are brilliant and taken my photos to the next level! Can’t wait to purchase some more!

  21. Lizzy Yates Photography on October 14, 2014 at 5:48 pm

    Great Set “ñ Great Service. Newborn Necessities is my go-to set for much of my portrait work, I love how it quickly adds a little extra to my work.More importantly, I have found your set to be priceless in the work I do for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. As an affiliated photographer with NILMDTS I capture pictures for families who have to say goodbye to their babies.Your set allows me to quickly and beautifully retouch these images. Newborn Necessities gives me the flexibility to use different actions, at different strengths (allowing for dramatic to subtle) so I can provide pictures to these families that are beautiful and timeless.

  22. Gladys on October 14, 2014 at 5:48 pm

    Wow!!!!!!! I’ve never experienced actions like these. They add beauty, softness, and sweetness to all of my baby images, and other images that require a soft subtle beauty.

  23. Sammie Manners Photography - Australia! on October 14, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    Wow, thank you soooo much for these amazing actions! I have defintely moved on bigger and better with my photography! Cuts my editing time in half and gives my images that beautiful cut clean look I love! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!

    Outstanding!Love this action set! I moved it to the top of my actions pallet:) I intend to use on all my images. I’ve only used it on a couple of session edits but so far soooo good! Worth every penny! Thank you Jodi!

  25. Danielle on October 14, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    LOVE this set!!!Newborn Necessities is an amazing set of actions that not only are to be used on newborn editing, but on just about anything.

  36. tash19880 on August 24, 2015 at 2:54 am

    I purchased this as i have always wanted to do a newborn workshop and saw all the positive reviews. I can say im definitely not happy with this product. so much time wasted in these videos to make it a long video. there was alot of settling bubs in most videos which wasted alot of time. Was an absolute waste of money especially being Australian Dollars of over $300. Should have just gone and done a workshop with someone in person (Hands On)

    • Jodi Friedman on August 24, 2015 at 9:12 pm

      We are sorry you feel this way. We’ve received only positive reviews of our class. Rather than rush through and explain how, we actually show techniques for soothing the baby to sleep, and how to accomplish the peaceful sleeping images photographers work so hard to capture.

  37. SuzanneBauer on November 25, 2017 at 4:44 pm

    I purchased Newborn Necessities Photoshop Actions Set several years ago when I did a lot of newborn sessions. I stopped doing newborn sessions but I haven’t stopped using the Newborn Necessities actions! I shoot real estate photography now and I use the actions all the time!! and I’d be lost without the Touch of Light/Dark Action too!!

  38. Hannah on November 27, 2017 at 11:30 am

    I bought the “Newborn Necessities” photoshop package last year and it hasexceeded my expectations! I use it all the time and it has definitely madea difference with my photos. It was a great starter pack for someonegetting used to photoshop!

  39. PatriciaSchuette on November 27, 2017 at 2:02 pm

    The Newborn Necessities Photoshop Action Set has taken my photos to a whole new level. There are so many options and it is frequently difficult to choose a favorite. I have been using it for several years and it is still my go to set of actions!

  40. AmyEricksen on November 27, 2017 at 2:48 pm

    I have loved using the MCP actions. I have the Inspire collection and theNewborn Necessities collection. In my editing I always use at least one ofthe presets in Inspire and for black and white pics I love NN presets. Iwould love to get some new collections.

  41. JasonRobertson on November 28, 2017 at 9:09 am
