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!
