The Baby Backdroplet
A round backdrop stand for newborn and baby photography that’s affordable, looks professional, is sturdy and light, and makes your life easier by keeping the background smooth so you won’t need to edit out blanket wrinkles later in Photoshop.
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. Turn the beanbag towards the light, and your background will still be perfect -you can photograph the top of her head, swivel the bag to see the tips of her toes, and you still won’t have to edit the background later.
When assembled, the stand is 50″ in diameter and 28″ high in back. It weighs less than 3 pounds. When 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 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. Travel sized beanbags also work. What we don’t recommend is using a beanbag larger than the stand.
A beanbag is not included, but they’re easy to find on Amazon or Etsy if you don’t have one already.
Included is a slipcover (your choice of color and material) 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.
Made of fiberglass rods and structural plastic connectors, our backdrop stand 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 be able to assemble this stand yourself in just a couple of minutes or less with no tools necessary.
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.
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.
There are lots of slipcover options available. We always include at least one (your choice of color and material) with your order. Our current stock is found on our sales page.
We think that you’re going to love this innovative way to set up your newborn photography! You will look more professional, setup will be easier, and you will spend less time later in Photoshop correcting blanket creases and wrinkles.
