“I find it very difficult to find actions for newborns. So many actions are created for a specific image or setting, and when you try to apply them to your work, it just isn’t a good fit. What I love about Marissa’s Newborn Set is that they feel so universally applicable. I tried the same action on a bright image as well as on an image with very dark tones, and I found that they were so versatile. They provide just enough of a creative edit without going overboard with processing. I love them! I am a creature of habit, and after having developed a workflow that works for me, I don’t tend to add actions into the mix. But Marissa’s set is fantastic, and I have already incorporated them into my regular workflow. I can’t say enough good things about them!” Jenni, Jenni Jones Photography
“Marissa’s new Newborn actions are divine! She made every aspect of newborn editing easy and there is an action for everything that can be completely tweaked for each image! I have purchased a few newborn specific action sets in the past and this one is superior by far! I stopped using actions because I couldn’t find any that worked consistently for my natural and studio light images but THESE DO and they help make my images look AMAZING! Thank you Marissa!” Nikki, Nikki Painter Photography
“I was so excited to try these actions on my newborn sessions! Marissa’s actions are so easy to use and adjust to my liking. I absolutely love her skin tone actions! They made my editing process so much faster and I was able to keep my edits simple and consistent. This is an amazing collection of actions for newborn photographers and definitely worth the investment. You will love the ease of use and the stunning way they enhance your imagery. My newborns’ skin has never looked better! I used the clean newborn set on each and every image. LOVE these! My go-to action seems to always be the newborn workflow. AWESOME! Perfect combination of color and contrast! I am also in LOVE with the jaundice fixer, mani-pedi and the skin tone fix. Amazing! These are absolutely perfect and all any newborn photographer would need to edit any image. And I LOVE the topaz action in the frosted set. Stunning!” Tara, Tara Lindley Photography
“I love these sets and feel that, together they make a complete newborn editing workflow. I found the clean newborn perfect to cover all my newborn needs, from skin tone to blanket fix (and I love the clean workflow) and the frosted newborn allows me to add my personal style in a way that perfectly suits each image. I LOVE the Frosted Newborn action set. I am already a big fan of Marissa’s actions, and once again, I am wowed by another beautiful set. What a quick easy way to take my newborn images from beautiful to amazing. I will turn to these actions for all my newborns from now on!” Cindy, Cindy Ellis Photography
“I just love these actions! I’m am not usually an action person because they can easier overpower your image! However, that is not the case with Marissa’s actions. They are perfect, simple, include everything you need from start to finish and will speed up your workflow! They are easily customizable and need little tweaking. I highly recommend them and will be including them in my normal workflow! I will, from now on, be using the Newborn Workflow on every newborn image! It will be such a time saver!” Katie Glasser, S18 Photography
“Marissa Gifford has created yet another amazing action set, this time for newborn photographers. The attention to detail and versatility that Marissa has put in to this set is phenomenal – each action is fully customizable and has endless possibilities. It is not an exaggeration to say that this set is a newborn photographer’s dream – a fabulous combination of correcting and artistic actions that allow the user to create their own unique workflow with a few simple mouse clicks.” Nicole, Nicole Israel Photography
“These actions are the perfect tool kit for a photographer who wants to give their newborn images that special something. They are so beautiful and clean and keep skin tones and image tones nice and creamy. Absolutely love these!” Tarah, Tarah Sweeney Photography
“These are the only actions you will ever need for newborns! From smoothing/fixing skin, reducing red/jaundice and adding beautiful tones to those newborn images, these actions really speed up my workflow!” Brooke, Crystal Brooke Photography
“Marissa definitely hit the nail on the head with these actions. They fit perfectly into my workflow and speed it up considerably! There is an action to fix all your newborn woes. These took my newborn work from drab, to fab!” Sabrina, Sabrina Bollenberg Photography
