One question we see come up all the time in our groups and forum is the question of what preset collections are best for those who photograph newborns. Editing newborns always comes with its own set of challenges. Below are the 3 best Pretty Preset collections for editing newborns!
No matter what precious newborn you are shooting, it is highly likely that they will have some skin issues. It just comes with the territory. Between redness in the skin, yellow in the skin and eyes, flaky skin, and baby acne, you are likely to spend significant time editing each newborn's skin.
The Bella Baby Newborn Brushes included in this set will help you to target and fix newborn skin easily. With brushes to combat redness and yellow hues in the skin and brushes for smoothing the skin, you'll find them an invaluable tool in your editing arsenal.
The presets in this collection are beautifully soft and are the perfect for editing newborns in Lightroom. One of my favorite brushes in this Collection is the Healthy Glow Brush, which will add a little bit more flesh coloring to a pale baby or even to the skin of a baby that you have already had to correct coloring on.

Many times, newborn sessions are shot indoors to allow for the newborn to be most comfortable. One of my favorite collections for indoor images is the Clean Edit Portrait Workflow Collection.
This incredible portrait collection has layerable presets that allow you to very easily customize the edit to your image. There are presets in this collection to help with color casts (also very helpful for newborn skin), exposure issues, sharpening, and white balance and so much more!
The Pretty Film: Pastels offers a beautiful light and airy application to any newborn image. This collection has become a favorite for every style and session type.
With the Film Pastels Collection, you can quickly enhance your images with peachy pinks, cool greens and creamy skin tones that photographers love to use on every session (including family, wedding, senior and of course newborn). This collection also comes with the Pretty Film Toolkit, which includes 25 additional and invaluable Lightroom Tool presets.
