Rectangular Newborn Posing Bean Bag with Rigid Front Wall

Rectangular Newborn Posing Bean Bag with Rigid Front Wall

Extra Wide Posing Surface

A massively wide posing surface of approximately 47.25 inches (120 cm) makes posing newborn multiples a breeze. Your backdrops will also lay more consistently for the width of your image which means less post production work and more pleasant lighting fall-off.

Rigid Front Wall

A rigid front wall is integrated directly into the front edge for the newborn posing surface. The rigid front wall resists collapse which is a common challenge while working with newborn posing bean bags–especially larger sized bean bags.

Training Material

Learning how to set up your bean bag and backdrops for optimal results can be a time consuming and confusing process. If you would like to take all the question marks out of the equation so that you will know exactly how to set everything up for optimal results and with the ability to work well with posing contour, consider the purchase option that includes training. You will also receive an advanced filling comparison guide so that you can make an educated decision on which filling to use for your bean bag!

What is the rigid front wall for!?

I have been working behind the scenes for a long time to design a posing bean bag that would address some of my major concerns with the conventional newborn posing bean bags that are currently available. My goal was to maintain the mold-ability of a bean bag so that I can make surface depressions but to have a posing surface that is much firmer. Firmer means that you have much more control over how you shape your bean bag and it means that it is much safer and more predictable.

I was willing to go to any lengths to design the best posing surface… so much so that I even made a prototype bean bag that had variable firmness from easily mold-able to locked in place by the turn of a dial. The problem was that it was not commercially viable for several reasons. With that design, I had a gold standard to aim for.

Eventually, I came up with the idea of a rigid front wall. It instantly alleviated my safety concerns with a standard newborn posing bean bag by preventing the front edge from collapsing. The rigid front edge also gives more usable height because the sides do not bulge out as much as they otherwise would.

I also experimented with a lot of different filling options from standard to unlikely to narrow down exactly which one I like best to get the firmest surface while still maintaining mold-ability.

The end result is a bean bag that is a dream to use for newborn posing instead of a necessary frustration.

(September 3, 2015) I absolutely LOVE using my rectangular beanbag with the ridged front wall. Whenever I get the chance I recommend it to every photographer I meet because I couldn’t be more pleased with it. The size of the beanbag helps me feel more secure and safe when posing my newborns, which is a VERY important part of newborn photography. The space on top of the beanbag is able to comfortably accommodate multiples, I often work with twins and thus far it has not disappointed. I know that when I eventually do get triplets in the studio the beanbag will be perfect! An issue I always ran into when posing with a circular beanbag was how the sides curved and “dropped off”. I also found it harder to make sure the fabric didn’t crinkle because I had to work with the curve. With the rectangular bag I am able to get my fabric smooth because the bag reaches all the way to where I clip my fabric. One of the features on this bag that makes it truly unique is the ridged front wall; along with the size of the beanbag I have found the ridged front wall helps me to feel safer when I am working with babies. I can tell where the edge of the beanbag is; it is strong enough I can lean on my elbows while posing with out causing the bag to sag.

When choosing my beanbag I opted to go with the lower height at Bianca’s suggestion and I am very glad I did! When I had a taller bag I found myself kneeling a huge majority of the shoot because that was the level the baby was at. With the lower beanbag I kneel when I need to, whether it be posing or trying to get a certain angle. But now the majority of the time I sit because that is what level baby is at which has helped my knees immensely.

It has been 8 months since I made my first purchase from Axsys Design and I am not sorry in the least. Not only are Bianca’s products remarkable and have revolutionized how I photograph newborns but her customer service is hard to beat. If I ever have a question Bianca gets back to me right away, I have loved working with her thus far and I look forward to continuing to work with her in the future! –

(June 11, 2015):I just love the products from Axsys Design! I own the newborn Cloud poser and the Axsys rigid front beanbag. They are both essential tools for my newborn sessions. I use the Cloud poser on almost every single beanbag pose I do. It’s such a time saver. My newborn beanbag from Axsys is so nice and wide, I always have plenty of space (even with multiples). And the rigid front is GENIUS! I don’t have to worry about the front dipping down during my sessions any longer. Bianca, thank you thank you!!! –
