Top 8 Reasons Why Families Do Professional Family Portraits

Over the years of photographing families of all shapes and sizes at Bambini Photography, we have come to realise that these families that make time to do a professional family portrait come, because of various events that triggered them to do so. The ultimate objective is always the same, portraying the idea behind “One Happy Family”. This idea though sound simple, there are many permutation to this.

The trigger events however is varied between each individual or family.

We have compiled the Top 8 List of Reasons Why Families Do Professional Family Portraits.

1. Celebrate Milestones

Birthdays, Anniversaries, Graduations.

One of the most common reason why people come to have a professional photoshoot is “Celebration”, its to celebrate the milestones of a person’s life such Birthday… Child, Mum, Dad, Grandparents, Anniversary, 10, 15, 25, 50 years wedding anniversary, New addition to the family, Wedding, Having a newborn baby, or someone’s graduations.

These are the moments people want to remember their life with and usually its one of the top reason why people contact us for a family photo shoot. It can be done in our studio, outdoor or at your home.

2. Someone in the family is ill or dying.

Life is beautiful until we received a death sentence by our sickness. After the sadness passed, the only thing we all want to do is to have everyone in the family around. Majority of time, it is the time to do the shots that immortalised what it means to be a family.

We have done plenty of family in this setting… what makes or breaks the shoot is the ability to be sensitive and be professional to get the best shots of everyone and the individual. Yes, it will come a point where someone in the family need that one photo. Many make it in time to get the portrait done but some sadly don’t.

In shoots like these, we often get hinted by the ‘organiser’ to get a proper and nice individual shot of the individual to stand-by for the ‘Lorry Photo’. It’s something everybody wants deep down but nobody wants to talk about. It is never too early to get it prepared. We have professional experience that we know for sure how to navigate and make it pleasant for everyone.

So next time you arrange a family photography, include the grandparents and let us get you the “shots” in the most pleasant way.

3. Frustrated for Not Being In The Shots.

It is all nice and good when you have tonnes of the images of your spouse and children. If you look through your phone and don’t see yourself. What makes you think that people know that you exist? No one want to be in the position to be known as “the person who is not there”.

Sure, occasional selfies or wefie might be great, how many of that is printed, showed and appreciated like an art? That’s right… it stays in the phone until something happen to it and it is all gone.

I am not saying that you shouldn’t take pictures yourself, but merely wanted to bring awareness that even professional like ourselves get people to do a portrait for our own family every now and then.

It may sounds superficial to have “that” family photo, but the fact is, it is about the family connection that we are trying to portray.

Some are happy being out of the picture as they feel they need to lose that extra few kilos to get back to pre-child weight before considering to be in front of the camera. You know it… if you are one of the few lucky ones who can achieve it within 3 months, we congratulate you and we are filled with envy. However, the reality is the majority of us do take quite a while to get back to pre-child weight or shape (fingers crossed).

There is a tipping point where enough is enough. This tipping point is usually a time where you scroll back the photos and realise you’re not in it most of the time and when your kids ask ‘why aren’t you in the photo’ or “I remember where we were at xxx place this photo” and starts to describe what they remember of that day the photo was taken…. with no mention whatsoever of mummy’s weight or looks at that time.

This tipping point varies and some take many years to realise, some see it within the first year or so. And this is when they decided to look around for recommendations for a family photographer that they believe will get beautiful pictures of their family, with YOU in it.

One of our long time client mentioned that they love photographing and videoing their kids on their mobile phone but would still want to have at least ONE PROPER family and sibling photo a year and religiously made time to schedule in their family shoot every year. It’s their form of getting the kids to remember they are ONE Family and they do have lots of love and fun with one another.

4. When Everyone is Back Home

Globalisation has made travel easier, living in different countries and places for your immediate family seems to be a norm nowadays. Even in normal life, how much time do you really come together as one family and do something together?

You wake up, go to work, come home late, dinner, play with the kids, sleep and tomorrow is another groundhog day and before we know it, our kids are grown, our parents getting old.

Festive season gives a reason for everyone to sit back, relax and reflect on their achievements, creating some bonding time.

This is a perfect time and perhaps the “excuse” that you are looking for to get those important but not urgent kind of shots done once and for all.

Leave it to professional like us as we make it simple for you and all you need to do is turn up and walk away with beautiful shots of everyone. Do contact us for a chat to see how we can help.

5. When you have visiting family from back home (eg. grandparents)

For many expat families, Asia is an interesting place and Singapore is one of the major city that many people want to visit.

When you have families who come for a visit, wouldn’t be nice to create memories that they can be proud of for many years to come?

Grandparents are people who treasure memories and a gift of photograph is perhaps the most valuable one that you can give them.

A lot of our expat clients told us that, doing a shoot like this allow them to kill 2 birds with one stone. Present for the grandparents and present for their own family.

The UNESCO site of Botanic Garden, The wonder of Cool Flower Dome at Garden By the Bay, The relax area of East Coast Park, The heritage Peranakan houses in Joo Chiat, Emerald Hill and Club street, The Marina Promenade of the futuristic urban Singapore’s landscape… Or it can be as simple as your home and its surrounding.

Whenever it is, it is as easy as a phone call to our studio and we will help you to pick one that is the most suitable to your family.

6. Before someone leaves home for work/studies/NS

Travel has become more affordable and we can easily take a flight to other countries.

It’s easy to know of someone whose brother or sister, son or daughter who will be moving abroad for work or studies. Maybe someone who is going to be enlisted to national service and wants to have the family portrait done before the guy goes botak.

This is one reason that many come through our studio. Give us a call for a chat and see how we can work together.

7. Update Family Portrait

Last one was taken 10-15 years ago?

Many a times, we walk pass the hallway and see that the family portrait every day. One fine day, you walk pass and realised the much younger you on the photo and realised the shot was taken perhaps 3, 5, 10, 15 or 20 years ago. Holy moly… you don’t look like that anymore, your children now are taller than you… that bald baby is grown with a full head of hair or perhaps there is another addition to your household.

Grandparents are from the era that they need to save save and save… life was not as easy or as accessible as in today. So they won’t ask and deep down, you know that they love to have it… how long would you like them to wait?

If this is your situation, drop us a quick call or email and we will take care of you…

8. Know someone who fits in Points 1-7 above?

I know, I know… this is not the year… maybe next year… we hear that way too often.

Many times, finding the perfect gift to give is a challenge especially when the recipient already have most material things that they need… so what else would be meaningful for them? Perhaps going to a family photoshoot to have some fun and enjoy the experience while getting beautiful images at the end of it all and having tangible memories framed and displayed at the family home or work place.

You can easily purchase the voucher through our website and offer them to someone who you care about.

We had an awesome maternity cum family photoshoot with Bambini. All queries with regards to shooting day, attires, photos selection, special upgrade packages etc. were addressed promptly and the staffs are also nice & warm.

On the shooting day, our photographer Fatilyn has managed to capture all the precious moments in freeze frames. I can see joy, I can see love, I can see bliss in the pix. She also managed to capture my 2 elder kids’ cheeky moments. Friends have commented that there are so much love in the photos. And the service is really fast, I get to view the 100+ drafts on the same day of the shooting! We even manage to get their goodwill services for additional editing on some of the photos as per our request.

Conclusion: love, love the photos outcome. Price is reasonable too & it feels comfortable doing the maternity shots as the photographer is very professional. Highly recommended to all friends out there & will definitely come back again for our future shoots.

Cake Smash Alternative – Fruit Smash Photography

Yay!!! Your baby is finally approaching one…

 

Last 10 or so months have been nothing short of amazing.

 

Remember those days that you stare at those little fingers, little toes? Remember when they first stick their heads up while doing tummy time?

 

When they start rolling from back to their tummy or the special moment when your child sit up independently for the first time?

 

Watching them grow through each milestone as they begun to sit up unassisted, grasp and hold onto food, see how they interact with their surroundings, the food texture, their natural curiosity that brings them to explore and experiment.

 

Of course, there are times where you thought, how we are going to go through with those crying and sleepless nights.

 

As a first time parents, we understand that getting things in order, keeping the baby clean is our priority. However, your baby is going to turn one, you are thinking what you could do to celebrate this major milestone of your little baby?

 

At Bambini, we always think of ways to help our clients to celebrate their children milestones.  Cake Smash is so popular these days but unfortunately, it may not be for everyone…

 

For children who are allergic to ingredient in the cake or simply prefer an healthier options. We have replaced cake with Fruit…

 

Watermelon is great for photography because of the colour. So, are you up for some smashing fruit time? Let your babies get their hands on these sweet bites!

 

If you have an older child, they can get involved too! Have him or her feed their little sibling, and have some bonding time. It’s these little moments of affection that melts my heart! Does it do the same for you?

 

And wouldn’t you agree? This looks like so much fun! Have an enjoyable photography session with us, tickle your babies and have those laughters and smiles captured together as a family!

The Essence of Family | Family Photography

We’d like to take on Tolstoy on his take on ‘family’ but we rather stick to what we know best. After years of taking family photographs, we can safely say that “No one family is the same.”

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

Fam·i·ly ˈfam(ə)lē/

From our search, the dictionary shows that a family is a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household.

However, things are fast-changing in the modern context.

Families come in all shapes and sizes, numbers, just like ourselves and our dress sizes.

Some families do not live together in one household, because they are separated by seas, circumstances, work. Some families do not have a complete set of parents, due to illnesses, separations, estrangement or even death. Some families are childless choosing to adopt pets as children. Some families are made different. Some families are adopted or fostered.

But all of them are still families!

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

Being a part of a family means accepting each other’s differences, to protect and respect, to comfort each other in times of happiness and sadness, and to support one another to higher grounds, to share memorable life experiences together and to celebrate moments as one.

Those essences are what make family beautiful- the odds and differences of each character and member of the makeup of a family.

And we love capturing them on camera. To have perfectly encapsulated them in pictures, their frowns, their laughters, their cheekiness, their tears, their care for each other.

In this festive season, we are calling all families, whatever you are to give yourself a shot at having your family photos taken. Share with others your joy, your beautiful clan that brings you the most happiness. Show them off and show the world how proud you are of your family.

No matter how big or small, how diverse, how unconventional, how normal. Display your family portraits at home, in your office, your bathroom, your wallet. Because trust us, it is this little thing that you’d look back time and again that will put a smile on your face when you caught sight of your family on the framed photo or even the one tuck in your purse.

Now, that’s what we call a worthy purchase.
