Please Note: If you are traveling in a mini-van or an SUV, you may be better served with a Custom Studio Size bean bag.


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. You may have just spent 15 minutes or more soothing Baby into the perfect newborn photograph only to realize that your bean bag sloped down in the front which won’t be visually pleasing for your photo and can even be dangerous.

Integrated Side Restraints

The option for integrated side restraints adds a tab on both sides of your bean bag. The tab can be used to clip your backdrops to directly. If you want something more rigid to stretch your backdrops to, it is easy to slide a PVC frame into the tabs. It only takes about 15 minutes… and a easy DIY guide will be included in your E-Workshop.

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.
