The Baby Backdroplet

Introducing the Baby Backdroplet (patent pending) - the backdrop stand for newborn and baby photography that 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.

Use your own beanbag (it's not included) and clamp your own fabric or blankets to the sides. The elevated sides allow you to clamp the fabric smoothly so you won't have to edit out those blanket wrinkles and creases later. The stand easily tilts in whichever direction you want so you can turn with the light and still take perfect pictures that won't need editing later.

When assembled, the size is 52" in diameter and 25" high. 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.

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.

Made of fiberglass rods and steel connectors, it is very light and strong. The connections are made of steel 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 two minutes or less with no tools necessary.

The Baby Backdroplet will probably work with whatever beanbag you are currently using for newborn photography. The beanbag shown below is 44" wide and 13" high, but a smaller or larger bag would also fit. Please contact us if you have any questions about the size of your beanbag working with the backdrop stand.

Once the stand is assembled and the beanbag is in place, you can use any of your favorite pieces of fabric, rugs, or blankets, and clamp them to the top rail. Many soft and beautiful fabrics come in 60" widths, which will cover the whole surface of the baby backdroplet. But even if your fabric is more narrow, the elevated sides of the stand will allow you tilt the whole structure - without necessarily moving the beanbag - in ways to cover the background area as fully as possible.

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 work with metal and create amazing things in his workshop. Always supportive, he worked through many prototypes before arriving at the stand you see here.
