The Baby Backdroplet II

The Baby Backdroplet II (patent pending) has been reengineered and improved, thanks to feedback from our clients. It's the round backdrop stand for newborn and baby photography that is affordable, looks professional, is sturdy and light, and makes your life easier by eliminating the need to edit out blanket wrinkles later in Photoshop. It's perfect for photographers who travel to their clients' homes, or to use in your studio.

The best part about this background stand is its round shape - this allows you to have your background showing behind the baby no matter what camera angle you use. Reposition the baby towards the light, and your background will still be perfect! You can photograph the top of her head and the tips of her toes and you won't have to edit the background later.

When assembled, the size is 50" in diameter and 28" high in back. It weighs only 44 ounces (2.75 pounds). When it's disassembled, its storage footprint is very small - it's 72" long and about 2" wide.

Made of fiberglass rods and structural plastic connectors, it is very light and strong. The connections are made of hard ABS plastic and won't come apart unless you want them to. You will especially appreciate this if you have ever made yourself one of those DIY PVC background stands that comes apart at inopportune moments. You will be able to assemble this stand yourself in just a couple of minutes or less with no tools necessary.

The baby is never supported by the backdrop stand. The stand only holds fabric out and around the baby, who is resting solidly and safely on your beanbag (not included). There is no chance of tipping. The stand stays on the floor around the outside of your beanbag.

The Baby Backdroplet will probably work with whatever beanbag you are currently using for newborn photography. The beanbag shown here is 44" wide and 14" high. Please contact us if you have any questions about the size of your beanbag working with the Baby Backdroplet - but it is very close in size to any other backdrop stand meant for a full-size posing beanbag.

Included is a slipcover that attaches to the stand and makes a seamless base layer for photography. A white slipcover is shown here. It attaches to the Backdroplet and stretches so it will be wrinkle-free. The single-color slipcovers have a textured side and a smooth side.

Layer your own fabric or blankets, or other slipcovers (sold separately), over the base layer. If your fabric is not quite as wide as the background stand (50"), it will probably still work, because the sides are elevated. The base layer slipcover will help keep it all in place.

The stand itself is not only professional looking, so that you look like a pro when you get to your clients' homes, but it's big enough to use for newborn twins and small enough to fit through the front door when assembled.

The Baby Backdroplet was developed by Matt and Pam, husband and wife and photographer and engineer. Pam has been doing newborn portraits for 8 years and knows how frustrating it is when you need a different angle, or you want to avoid waking the baby up but the background is not stretched correctly behind him or her. She has had to fix in Photoshop many blanket creases and areas where the living room shows instead of the backdrop. She knew there must be a better way to hold the blanket in the background so that she wouldn't have to edit later. Matt loves to  create amazing things in his workshop. Together they engineered their way through many prototypes and models before arriving at the stand you see here.
