One of the huge changes I’ve made already is with my equipment! For the past year I’ve used the top of the line posing + backdrop system. While I loved what I was previously using, now I’ve changed my system to the Newborn Cloud that Bianca and her husband created. It has seriously simplified my workflow and works incredibly for my space, I took the leap to make the huge change and I’m never looking back! [more…]
I have been so thrilled with the posing pillow set from Newborn Cloud! No more having to carry around a box full or receiving blankets to stuff under. These pillows make the poses we as newborn photographers strive for so easy. The material is perfect as they don’t slip around on the beanbag, and it creates a nice smooth surface for the blanket to fall over. They are heavy enough to stay put, but light enough that they don’t sink into the beanbag. Now I can easily move onto each pose without having to pull out receiving blankets and start over. They are also the perfect size for props! I use them under baby’s arms in a bucket, or behind their head in a bowl. So glad I can finally throw out my bucket of receiving blankets!
As newborn photographers, we are always trying to perfect our posing and keep our work consistent from session to session. After researching a number of posing pillows, I was able to use the Newborn Cloud Posing Pillows. I used them for each pose in my workflow with no need to shove blankets or other fluff under my blankets to position baby. These pillows allowed me to transition easily and quickly from pose to pose in my workflow. I can honestly say that I have absolutely no need to ever use anything else to pose my babies. The pillows stay in place and do not shift on the beanbag. I wasn’t wasting time trying to adjust blankets or fluff to get the baby positioned just right. Additionally, I love that they allow me to keep my blankets smooth, so I don’t have to do any editing to my blankets in post processing. These pillows have completely changed the way I do my sessions. I love them! Thank you for creating such an amazing product!! I’ll never go back to using blankets again!
As a newborn photographer there are tons of posing products out there for us to buy, there are round bean bags, there are square, rectangle, oblong, tall, short, there are posing pillows that are of all shapes and sizes some that are a darn waste of money, some that are nothing short of amazing and you would have to rip them out of my cold dead hands. I have used everything from receiving blankets, to the butterfly pillow, to random things that are around the house, this review is about the newborn posing pillows by Photography by Axsys Design called The Newborn Cloud.

…As you can see all the props make the shot and they are not even shown in the image. They simply enhance the best pose and help with session making these tools of the trade! Thank you Bianca for making my job easier 🙂
These 3 bags are GREAT!! I’ll never go back to using receiving blankets as stuffers again. I think every NB photographer needs these little ditties. ???

I absolutely love working with the posing ring! It has fit nicely into my posing workflow, and creates a really great surface for a variety of positions. It works beautifully for the potato sack, but I also love it for froggy, head on hands on beanbag, laying on back, and bum up poses. It’s soft enough to create a nice amount of padding, but solid enough that it doesn’t move around on me.
[more…]In addition to learning so many things during my mentoring with her, I also received the original newborn posing pillow that she created. During mentoring, I also used her mini posing set as well and ended up purchasing those because I fell in love with them. All three of them together make an amazing addition to newborn session workflow. They are easy to use and work much better than the wads of rolled up cloths I had been using before that. […more]
