Newborn photography is a widely popular service in the world. In Bangladesh, though wedding photography has been very trendy over the last few years, this particular style of photography is still an out of focus area. Considering its demand in Bangladesh, Baby Pixels started its journey in 2016 with a team of experienced photographers and artists who started capturing the photos of newborns in a thematic way using different concepts. They have been doing it successfully for more than two years now, blending the western styles of baby photography with Bangladeshi themes.
With their creative works which has been done over the last two years, Baby Pixels arranged the first ever baby photography exhibition in Bangladesh at Drik Gallery in Dhanmondi, Dhaka from 7 December to 8 December. An online quiz was launched before the event whose winners will get a free birthday photo shoot for their babies. Moreover, those who participated in the competition received a 10 percent discount card for any service from Baby Pixels. In the event, Baby Pixels designed beautiful sets where the participants could enjoy free photography service.
Anika Rahman, Co-founder of Baby Pixels, said “Baby Photography was always there in Bangladesh, just the style was different. When we were young, our parents used to take us to local photo studios where we had to stand in front of a wall decorated with plastic flowers and fake sceneries like waterfalls, beaches etc. Now the time has changed, the style has changed, but the need for beautiful pictures of children is still there. People now want to capture the memories of this beautiful period starting from pregnancy to toddler years. These memories are precious and mean a lot to the parents. Baby Pixels is just trying to help the parents capture these precious moments in a creative way.”
A lot of people attended the exhibition during both the days. Everybody congratulated Baby Pixels for taking such an initiative in our country. Apart from the new parents and customers, a lot of previous clients also attended the event and made it a success. All the parents thanked the Baby Pixels team and inspired to move forward in future. Baby Pixels team members also expressed their gratitude towards all the attendees of the event.
The artist team of Baby Pixels consists of real life moms, who know the priorities of babies and how to photograph them with proper care. The unique ideas of thematic photography and nap-time photography have given a new dimension, which is very uncommon in the photography industry of Bangladesh. Starting from the concept of village cowboy or bride to Marvel’s super heroes or Disney’s characters, Baby Pixels can help to shape imaginations using their art skills and set design.
