To be honest, photographing newborns on a beanbag has never been a favourite of mine.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the simplicity of these photographs but it had really become hard work so I more or less stopped offering these captures to clients. That is until now!
Lecturing at a recent Newborn and Family Congress in Brazil, I came across a product I’d not seen before and quickly realised what I’ve been missing out on. A Paloma Schell backdrop stand!
Before I go any further let me just say, this is not a paid advertisement, I’m simply sharing how great this product is and how much its helped me.
Considering my old beanbag was on its last legs, I decided that the CLASSIC STAND BY PALOMA SCHELL was the one for me!
If my old bean bag was still in good shape I may have only purchased the ROUND BACKDROP STAND BY PALOMA SCHELL however, in comparison the Paloma’s Beanbag is the perfect fit for the stand as its a little bit higher than my old one.
I’m pleased I purchased for the whole kit for the perfect fit!
THE BEST PART!
I also invested in the BABY BEDTIME . If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, its the circular cushion (seen below) that gently vibrates to soothe the baby. When placed on the floor and under the beanbag it is AMAZING!
To be honest, at first I couldn’t figure out how to plug it in to the wall! But as it turns out, all you need is a old mobile phone charger and it good to go! I love things that aren’t battery powered!
Paloma and her team have some awesome products available that have certainly made my sessions a whole lot simpler and way more enjoyable!
PS. The back clicker in my hand is my off camera shutter release and is not needed to run the product.
