I've watched all the pinterest directions on how to make your own newborn kit, and then have never made it to the hardware store to measure and cut each piece. I've gone many times to many hardware stores for other projects and I still avoid finding someone to help me cut any plastic, wood, pipes, gutters....and I've cut them all. With the newborn that Kristeen Marie Photography supplies everything is cut perfectly to size, labeled for those who like to skim the directions, and literally took me exactly 6 minutes the first time I put it together, and less time to break it down. If you're setting up in your own studio ~ this is super stable to change out backdrops on in, or elastically stretch to fit. If you travel to in home sessions, the set up time is quiet, simple and the perfect amount of backdrop size to shoot from many directions.
The best part is the photographer that supplies this backdrop, is an artistic newborn photographer who knows her way around a newborn shoot in many forms. Kristen Marie website is stunning with her newborn photography options. So, I know she knows a thing or two about capturing the pure sweetness of the little ones. I know as well, the last thing any newborn photographer wants to do is to mess around with a backdrop at the time of the shoot. Time is of the essence with newborn photography. I typically give my clients between a 2-3 hour window. Even arriving 10 minutes early to set up, you really want to have a reliable backdrop and lighting source that is quick and easy to set up ~ as well as break down. Little newborn angels don't work around our time, they are on their own time for cooperation and feeding and sleeping. Even with my newborn shoot prep sheet prior to our shoot, I know (having had three little myself) that once baby has arrived, baby is in control. I've had shoots in which our little is posing and sleeping soundly from the start, to shoots in which I bond with mom and dad because the little one is eating every 4 minutes and new mommies are tired!
When mom is tired, and our shoot is over, that last thing I want to do is use a loud clanky back drop and wake up the sleeping bundle. It's nap time for both little one and mommy.
So excited to meet more Etsy artists and to promote their products and artwork as well. Look for more video's of Kristeen Marie Photography backdrop from arrival to set up/break down. To order your backdrop visit Kristeen Marie Photography etsy shop ~ once ordered I had the backdrop delivered within the work week to get moving on booking newborn shoots!
