About the Bella Bun
The Bella Bun(TM) baby poser might appear to be a ordinary bean bag.. but it has some amazing one of a kind features to offer the photography industry that no bean bag or other baby poser can offer! The Bella Bun poser is a contoured, lightweight, portable and easy to store infant posing prop invented by Amanda of Amanda Rachael Photography. Our patent pending design has been market tested and has become highly desired among newborn photographers.
So why the Bella Bun poser?
The Bella Bun's unique contoured design has been created to give babies comfort, and give photographers the support they need in posing. Existing posers require photographers to disturb the baby by probing and poking and tucking pillows and blankets up under them to get the optimal position. With the Bella Bun poser, it is as simple as placing the baby down.
The water resistant material is perfect for the tiny little messes that frequent newborn photographers, and the carrying strap and lightweight design make it portable for on location photographers to travel to clients homes, birthing centers, hospitals, or to and from the studio!
Our goal is to help photographers both new and advanced to safely and easily "Pose Like The Pros".
The product is being cut, sewn, quality checked, packaged and shipped with the help of friends and family in a small town in central Maine. Since introducing the product back in February of 2011, we have been selling on average between 35-45 a month to Photographers all around the world, however, all of our profit (and then some) over the last year has gone directly back into the product, the patent, the trademark and the little bit of marketing we have been able to afford!
Why we need your partnership!
We have a great product that is changing the way photographers pose and photograph babies, but all of our profit has been used to date for the patent, the trademark, and setting up our opertaions. In 2012 our goal is to make the Bella Bun baby poser a household name, but we need your help to spread the word!
Your support will allow us to:
- Make an instructional video: This video will provide some great tips and techniques on how to pose babies using the Bella Bun poser;
- Make a marketing video: This video will show exactly what the Bella Bun is, and how it will change the way photographers capture baby photos!
- Display the product in a booth at Imaging USA or WPPI showing the world of photography what we have to offer them.
If, through your support, we exceed our goal, we will use additional money to update our current marketing flyers, images, campaign material and we will fulfill a long time goal to advertise in print magazines like PPA. If you completely surprise us in your support of our goal, we also need to increase our production capabilities through better facilities and engaging a manufacturer.
