Moments captured through their lens on display at Baby Pixels’ newborn photography exhibition

Baby photography is a widely popular service in the world. In Bangladesh, though wedding photography has been very popular for a while now, newborn photography is another concept that has been gaining traction in recent years. Considering the demand of newborn photography in Bangladesh, Baby Pixels started its journey in 2016 with a number of experienced photographers and artists. They started capturing the photos of newborns in a thematic way using different concepts. They have been doing it for more than two years now, blending the western styles of baby photography with Bangladeshi themes. 

The artist team of Baby Pixels consists of real life mothers who prioritize the babies’ comfort and know how to photograph them with proper care. Starting from the concepts of village cowboys or brides to Marvel’s superheroes or Disney’s princesses, Baby Pixels employs the use of set design and artistic sense to bring your desired images to life. The ideas of thematic photography and nap-time photography add a new dimension to lifestyle photography, a welcome addition to the photography industry of Bangladesh.

Apart from the artist team, Baby Pixels has a team of young photographers who are already renowned in the industry for their beautiful works. With their creative works which have 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 December 7-8. There was an online quiz launched before the event. Winners of the online quiz got a free Birthday Photo shoot for their Babies from Baby Pixels. Moreover, those who participated in the competition got a 10 percent discount card for any service from Baby Pixels. At the event, Baby Pixels designed beautiful sets where the participants could enjoy free photography service.

Anika Rahman, co-founder of Baby Pixels, talked to us about why she started this unique initiative. She said, “Baby Photography was always there in Bangladesh, just the style was different. When we were kids, our parents used to take us to the photo studios, and take photographs in front of floral wallpapers. Now the time has changed, the style has changed, but the demand is still there. People still want to capture the memories of this beautiful period of time, starting from pregnancy to toddler years. These precious memories mean a lot to them. Baby Pixels is just trying to help the parents capture these precious memories in a creative way.”
