It’s difficult to ID baby spiders, they look a lot different than the adults. It could be a False Widow in genus Steatoda. You have time to see what it grows up to be. It isn’t dangerous as long as it stays where it is and isn’t handled roughly.
If you use a small flashlight to spotlight the spider for photos your camera may be able to autofocus at a better depth.
