Gather Your Kampung For Family Photoshoot

For all the things our families have done for us, be it big or small gestures, when we were younger or recently – sometimes we can’t thank them enough, even for just being there with us.

That’s what family is, always being there for and with you at the end of any day, and doing it all over again.

When someone asks “How is your family like?”, we can’t answer them at times because all we see are flashes of memories from different parts of our lives which made such a big impact on us that… we become speechless? All of a sudden we’re not sure how to string words together to describe our family, because all the bitterness and all the sweet memories mixed together, is quite  indescribable.

But you know how it feels – how your family is like. Words cant quite describe your family like how you feel.

But photos portray how you feel. Somehow though, photos really do say thousands of words. Cliche, I know! But that’s the truth behind why we become photographers. The amount of love and gratefulness that you feel towards your family, it shows in the photos. From how you treat each other during the shoot, how you smile with each other to your body language when you take photos with each other. And this still shows even though some families do not live together in one household anymore – maybe because they are separated by seas, circumstances or work. But when everyone gathers the whole kampung, you paint a perfect picture. Every individual playing their role that somehow ties the relationship into your unique family.

There’s no better gift and expression of gratitude than making a keepsake of the people who loves you and vice versa, and enjoying the shoot with each other – the core meaning and drive behind a reason to capture memories. Sometimes, this is why photos are a great way to express gratitude and love to the people you cherish, because they get to hold onto a tangible memory too.

So, gather your whole kampung! Bring your cousins from overseas, bring your siblings, bring everyone together once again for a mini gathering, and take memories while at it.

The impulse to save our recorded memories is a powerful testament that tells us much about the importance of photography in our lives, and also the desire to capture our most precious moments into images.

Photographs are a wonderful thing. When we are happy we like to look at them, to remember the joyous occasions. And we do the same thing when we’re feeling down or sad.

We scroll the photos on our social media account and reminisce upon photo albums that have keenly served as as a tangible memoir to help us remember essentially the great past times with people we care about. Also in a lot of cases, to remember the ones who have left us behind.

We couldn’t think of any person who would not like to be photographed. Maybe there are individuals out there, but perhaps their numbers are few to come.

Presenting someone with a photography session that they and their families can enjoy is thoroughly a rewarding thing. We have yet to come across any family who refuses to be photographed, in actuality, most would jump at the chance to have their moments captured. 

It’s always a good time to create memories. Hold on and cherish your time with your loved ones, because time is gonna pass by quick. If you are curious and want to find out more about the photography services we rendered, simply shoot us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg or Send Us a Message and we promise to get back to you in the nick of time ;)

The Best Gift You Can Give | Bambini Photography Gift Vouchers

What Is That Best Gift You Can Give?

Give the gift of time!

If you think about it, we are a time-scarce society…

…”I’m busy”…

…”I just don’t have the time”….

…”Not now…”

are the common phrases we always use in our daily conversations. Before we know it, time has slipped us by…

Your kids have grown up, they are starting to look like little adults and not quite like chubby babies anymore.

Your parents have aged… They are no longer like before…. grey hair overtaking the head, common ailments that comes with age starts to appear fast and furious…

And you cannot rewind time.

But here’s what you can do, you can look at photographs and remember…

Even better, your photographs can tell stories to your children, and your memories become theirs.

“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” – Jim Rohn

More than just good photos we want to offer, but also a good time here with us, with your family.

Your photoshoot doesn’t get you just pictures, but quality time with your family…

You bring home: shared memories, a good experience, beautiful photos and a warm heart :)

In a world addicted to speed, let’s SLOW DOWN.

Enter into the present moment with all of your attention, and time will slow…

Let’s think about it…

When was the last time you had your family photos taken professionally?

Was it at your Wedding?

Your Graduation Family Shoot 5 years ago?

Never Done One Before?

Perhaps its time to start thinking about organising one for your family? Parent’s 60th/70th or 80th Birthday, Other half’s 40th, 50th birthday; Kid’s birthday; or

Drop a super big hint to your other half by gifting them a family photoshoot gift voucher. They simply have to make time to come to utilise it. No more excuses.

What about your boss, colleagues, mentors, clients, friends or relatives working very very hard for the their every day?

Perhaps its time to get together to gift them a family photo session to celebrate time and update their family photos with their parents; kids or altogether in a big family photoshoot.

Watching Rinihartini’s Family Grow – Family Photography Singapore

We consider ourselves lucky. Lucky to be able to witness the love and care in families, and watch them grow from the shoots they’ve had with us through the years.

One of the most common reason why people come to have a professional photoshoot is to celebrate and capture the moment. Celebrate the milestones of a person’s life such as birthday, children, mum, dad, grandparents, years of wedding anniversary, new addition to the family, wedding, having a newborn baby, baby’s milestones or graduations.

For some it starts with their first Maternity Shoot as a couple, then a 6-Months Baby Shoot, then a Family Shoot, and then a Generational Family Shoot. Sometimes, the list goes on because photos are never too much – every major milestone is different. 

Too often we hear parents say, “It feels like it was just yesterday when they were little.” Time passes us by, and before you know it, our babies are all grown.

The best part of having your photos taken every milestone? Is being able to watch your family change and grow over time again and again, and being able to remember the little moments and feelings that came along with it. We may have different reasons to why we are always taking photos, even if it’s of the same people. Being able to capture our journey, allows our history to be something our future kids can be a part of, from just looking at the photos – letting them see and know who we were once like, how we were like. Your memories become theirs.

We saw two beautiful people who are now parents of two. Dear Rinihartini, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey, to capture the precious milestones in your life and see your little family grow bigger. We could not express our awe of the love you have as a family. We hope that one day your children could feel it too from looking at the photos. 

It all began when Rinihartini and Nizam booked their first maternity shoot with us in 2016. Can you believe it? It’s been two years now. So much has changed. 

And they became three! The couple booked a 2-Months Baby photoshoot with us and would you just look their baby. As much as we love Newborn Photography, there’s something about 1-2 Months Photoshoot that makes it precious in its own way. We love their facial expressions and the special moments when parents are carrying and sniffing their babies. They will never be this tiny again. 

Sometimes, we manage to get similar looking poses of the babies from photoshoots that we’ve taken in different years – like the two images above & below! Two photos that say a thousands of words. 10 months difference… and their baby turned 1-year old for their Cake Smash Photoshoot.

When Rinihartini was expecting her second child, we felt very honoured to be part of her journey to document this moment again. Some might wonder, why do some mummies have a photoshoot for every pregnancy? Doesn’t it look the same? Here are some reasons why mummies take photos of all of their pregnancies:

1) Mummies get to reminisce each pregnancy

Every pregnancy is different. Pregnancy itself is so special. Your first-born – you were excited and thrilled. Not exactly sure what is to come, but ready to take in and learn everything for your baby together, first time as a family.

Second child – you are feeling more prepared and calm for your second pregnancy. But now, you are thrilled to share your excitement with your first-born, seeing him or her responding to having another little brother or sister.

2) Building a significant moment for the elder siblings to remember about having another sibling

Sometimes we can’t remember everything that happened during our childhood when we are older. Celebrating sometimes helps to build a significant moment that could help them remember in the future, of the time when the family was expecting another baby together. 

3) Getting everyone involved in the change and growth

While pregnancy can feel like it’s a solo job for the mummy at times, going out for a breather and spending time with the family can get the kids involved! Rubbing the tummy, kissing the tummy and more. Some elder siblings might get a little fearful of changes too. Spending the time with them to celebrate makes them feel that having a newborn baby coming into the family is fun. It becomes a family activity. 

And the family becomes four! The fun part – a photo of the whole family. Might be tricky :D, but definitely worth the time.

Photos are sentimental. These are the things families look back to and remember how far they’ve gone as a family. It may even be a source of motivation to them, the reason why we keep going. 

There is a saying that goes, “Children Spell LOVE as TIME. There may be many reasons as to why you cannot be with your children but none of them can replace the time lost. Once lost, it’s gone forever, you can never recreate the moment again.”

Being able to watch Rinihartini’s family and many families grow, and to provide a tangible memory for families is the greatest reward to us.

If you would like to know more information on the photoshoots we have, drop us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg  or give us a call at +65 8717 1558 to chat with our friendly team :)

About The Bambini Team.

One of the perks of our job is that we get to learn a lot about the people and families we’re photographing. Yet, we’ve been keeping things quite under-wrap for  ourselves. It was not intentional we promise. It’s just that we never really thought about it until today.
Over the course of the years that we’ve been mapping memories for our clients, learning about each of them, we feel it’s time we make ourselves known. The colourful individuals behind Bambini. The good, the bad and the super weird.


bambini-photo-1a

Joy, Photographer 

What are your likes and dislikes?
I like freedom, traveling, listening to people’s life stories, and learn from different cultures.

I dislike living in the expectations of others.

Tell us something quirky about yourself that no one knows
I used to be a backpacker for many years. When I see people with backpacks that is not packed or not adjusted properly, I will start to feel worried for their shoulders and I really wish I can help them to adjust it. XD

What is your pet peeve/weird habit?
I must make sure my home is tidy and organised before I leave home or go to bed, and I cannot reject myself to any avocado or matcha flavour food or drinks.

What is your worst moment and happiest moment as a photographer?
Happiest moment is when clients feel really relax and able to be themselves when taking photos with me. I love to capture the natural interaction between families & couples.

If your friends and family can describe you in three words, what would it be?
Audacious, funny and out-going.

What did you want to be when you were a child?
NBA Player ⭐ LOL

If you can describe your favourite moment in Bambini, how would it be?
My favourite moment is when we see super cute and innocent images of babies and then laughing together… and of course, when Lydia made us the yummy foods & cake 😋

What got you started on photography?
I used to be a graphic designer and photography was part of my job. I always had to work with a photographer, so from there I found my passion is actually in photography but not design.

What was your first camera?
Canon S95. It was the first gift I bought for myself after I started working and spending my own money. I bring it to everywhere and take photos every single moment.

What drives you, as a photographer?
I love solo travel and my 6D is my best friend along the journey. It helps me record all the memories that I may not be able to remember one day and of all the smiling faces I met around the world.

Share one of your proudest moment as a photographer!
When I was traveling in India, I realised that photo is something very precious for some people in the world. Not everyone has the chance to take a photo and they are really happy when they get the chance to do so. The ability to capture and help them to keep their memories and love in the photo is my proudest moment as a photographer!

Shawna, Clients Fulfillment

What are your likes and dislikes?

I love music and it is an eclectic choice, I don’t stick to one but different genres of music in various languages. I am also a big fan of Jay Chou and love most of his works! I play cover songs on my guitar and keyboard.
Designing and photography are my hobbies and they keep my creative juices flowing. I, play musical instruments, photography and  designing because those keep my creative juices flowing. I also like tattoos, rainy weather and colourful things, although ironically my wardrobe is full of black outfit. And I REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE ANIMALS and enjoy taking photographs of animals.

I hate getting my sleep interrupted having my personal space invaded and not having a peace of mind while doing work.

Tell us something quirky about yourself that no one knows.
My blanket is my ‘comfort zone’ and I always find myself having the need to hide under it to sleep even when the weather is too hot for it.
I really like the smell of a construction site and the musty smell of a storeroom.. HAHAHA
I have a phobia of butterflies and moths! (WTH, IKR?!)

What is your pet peeve/weird habit.
People who crumple tissues or leaved used tissues lying around are my greatest pet peeve.

If your friends and family can describe you in three words, what would it be?
DISCONNECTED FROM REALITY.

What did you want to be when you were a child?
Definitely not a teacher, lawyer or doctor… but an archaeologist! I am naturally inquisitive since young and would always sit in front of the TV to watch documentaries, like Egyptian mummies or excavations of skeletal remains. I had a lot of random questions popping up in my head and I picture myself being the one discovering them.

If you can describe your favourite moment in Bambini, how would it be?
I guess one of my most memorable moment in Bambini is helping out Fatilyn with her family shoot. The family member requested a shot of the ‘ah gong and ah ma’ to hold hands. That was a touching moment and made me realise that life is so much more than just work. It made me realise that we have only limited time to be our loved ones so we have to treasure every moment.

Lydia, Customer Care

What are your likes and dislikes?

I have too many likes to share! I like soft toys, especially Tigger [from Winnie the Pooh], Garfield and Teddy Bears in general. Besides those, I like baking brownies and Tapak kuda, also known as Lucky Hoof roll cake, you can google it later if you don’t know haha.
I really dislike not being able to recall my dream after waking up in the morning. When at times I simply can’t recall even after much trying, it just doesn’t seems to appear in my brain bank…I hate when it happens.

Tell us something quirky about yourself that no one knows.
I don’t think I have any to share at the moment but let me have a think and get back to you once I have it.

If your friends and family can describe you in three words, what would it be?
Amiable, perseverance, witty.

What did you want to be when you were a child?
Back then I didn’t know what I wanted to be but when I was a teenager, I remembered wanting to be a well-known chef :D

If you can describe your favourite moment in Bambini, how would it be?
Oh well there’s nothing to say on worst moment cos everyday with Bambini is always the best even when I am feeling down.

bambini-photography-team-about-us-015

Polo, Customer Care, Ops & Marketing

What are your likes and dislikes?
I like to boss my family around apart from researching and organising trips for the family. Somehow other family members got the wind of this and I get arrowed to organise theirs too.

I dislike people who put their mismanagement into everyone else’s misery.

Tell us something quirky about yourself that no one knows.
Ironically my love to plan and organise doesn’t make me an organised person.

What is your best moment in Bambini?
Seeing happy colleagues, happy clients and happy children in the ever-growing Bambini family.

If your friends and family can describe you in three words, what would it be?
Loud, dramatic and detailed.

What did you want to be when you were a child?
Can’t remember what I wanted to do. There were so many. I guess as long as whatever I do doesn’t hurt anyone along the way, I would be fine!

If you can describe your favourite moment in Bambini, how would it be?
My favourite moment would be when I smell what Yong brought for lunch each day. Always curious to see what home-cooked food she has each day.

Also, Bambini fridge that is always well-stocked with different selections of chilli.

Melissa, Senior Photographer

What are your likes and dislikes?
I like dance, music, travelling, trekking, watching movies, adrenaline rush activities, Japanese food, playing with my dog, spending time with my family, trying new things.

I dislike cockroaches and horror movies.

Tell us something quirky about yourself that no one knows.
I get very sentimental about things I own and tend to personify them. This makes throwing away and getting rid of old things very hard for me as I’ll feel so ‘bad’ about throwing away things that have been with me for a long long time. It feels like I’m betraying an old friend. Haha it sounds so weird saying it like that, but it’s really how it feels to me.

When I receive presents wrapped in wrapping paper, especially if it’s very nicely and elaborately wrapped, I’ll try very hard not to tear the paper when I open it. And if the present is something I won’t be using immediately, I like to wrap it back in the paper like how it was originally wrapped before I opened it and keep it that way.

What is your worst moment and happiest moment as a photographer
Happiest moment is seeing clients really enjoying the session and genuinely having fun with their family and children.

If your friends and family can describe you in three words, what would it be?
Easygoing, adventurous and humble

What did you want to be when you were a child?
I had so many interests when I was young, so there were quite a few things I wanted to be! But I think top of the list back then would probably have been a dancer/ballerina or a pianist, as those were (and still are) my first loves (:

If you can describe your favourite moment in Bambini, how would you?
My favourite moment would be the smiles and laughter of the kids and babies during the shoot, seeing how sweet and loving the parents or couples are during the shoot in the way they look at each other and interact with each other during the shoot. Just seeing the genuine emotions and affections of the family during the shoot is very heartwarming and one of my favourite moments here.

What got you started on photography?
My dad was an avid photographer since his youth, so he was always very eager to share this interest with me and show me his photos and cameras. He took a lot of pictures of his university days and my growing up years with his film camera, and was always very enthusiastic about documenting every moment of our lives as a family. I love flipping through all the albums that he lovingly filled with all the photos of our precious memories, so in a way he was my inspiration to follow the same footpath.

What was your first camera?
My very first camera was actually a Minolta film camera my mom passed down to me so I could take some pictures for a primary school excursion to the zoo. Being sentimental, I probably still have it somewhere in my room!
But my very first DSLR is a Nikon D80 that my dad passed down to me when he wanted to teach me how to use a DSLR camera.

What drives you, as a photographer?
I only fully realised how precious and important the photos that my dad had taken were when he passed away suddenly, as it was one of the few things we had to look back to remember him. My sister and I used to grumble a lot whenever he wanted to take photos of us everywhere we went, even during a mundane lunch at home. But I’m now very grateful that he was so adamant about taking those photos. So I think my purpose and drive in this line of work mostly stems from this realisation, as I know how important it is to preserve these memories with your loved ones, and I want to help others do the same.

Share one of your proudest moment as a photographer!
One of my proudest moment as a photographer was winning 2nd place in a local photojournalism competition in the professional category. There was an award ceremony, and the photo series that I submitted was displayed in an exhibition together with the other finalists. It was a very rewarding experience to see my work in print and being exhibited (:

Illiyin, Photographer

What are your likes and dislikes?
I love listening to people’s stories! and just observing them engaging with their loved ones. I love music, singing and most importantly, SEAFOOD – I wish I can eat cockles and salmon sashimi everyday… or watch people eat seafood on Instagram.

I dislike cold weather.

Tell us something quirky about yourself that no one knows.
I’m not sure if this is quirky but I used to love bread so much that my close friends gave me 17 buns of bread for my 17th birthday.

What is your pet peeve/weird habit.
I think my weird habit is that I like to change my hair randomly and try out some whacky hair salons, which I’d always regret but find it funny afterwards.

What is your worst moment and happiest moment as a photographer
The worst moment as a photographer is when I couldn’t provide my clients to enjoy their session and my happiest moment is when everyone is everyone is smiling and happy to be together for a photoshoot!

If your friends and family can describe you in three words, what would it be?
Weird, nice and random.

What did you want to be when you were a child?

I wanted to be a vocal coach

If you can describe your favourite moment in Bambini, how would it be?

Seeing parents feeling so happy and proud of their kids, when their kids are up to take a photo together. That moment when they are so full of love, and just in awe of their family. Gets me teary sometimes, and I feel so lucky to witness such love.

What got you started on photography?
When my siblings first bought film and fisheye cameras. Because my dad was a taxi driver, he’d drive us around to places we’d never go (like factory areas, old areas…) and we’d randomly find a spot and explore photography there. But I remember really getting involved with photography when I realised how much it meant to capture that split second of someone and being able to feel what that person feels.

What was your first camera?
Disposable cameras

What drives you, as a photographer?
Wanting to capture the love and beauty that someone/a family has, so that they could always look back to it and remember, and feel that same emotions that they felt on the day the photo was taken.

Share one of your proudest moment as a photographer!
Seeing the look of this Ah-ma’s face, when she was looking at her family and just laughing to herself. I felt so lucky to be able to help capture and provide a keepsake of her loving family.
