Top 3 Reasons Why Printing Photos Are So Important

Remember the feeling you got the first time you took a photo? When you wanted to capture and seize that moment so that it could last for a lifetime? It’s that warm fuzzy feeling when we get to have a memento of the people we love.

Back in the days when we couldn’t view the images immediately, we had to wait patiently until we use up all the 24 or 36 frames in the roll of film before we can send it in to the lab for processing and printing before we can even see the finished photos.

We would compile all of the prints in those albums that came together for free with the prints. The more artistic ones will take the trouble to put them in nicer looking albums instead of the ones that the lab give to us free :D The even more artistic ones will take more time to turn the prints into a photo album or scrapbook by adding some text or story in the album – where it was taken, when it was taken and what was the occasion…

The best part about that is it becomes a tangible memory for us. It is one of the main reasons why we became photographers ourselves. Being able to witness a family make time to come together for a photoshoot, gets us emotional inside and we just want it to be able to last forever for them.

Even though photos are more easily taken these days with smartphones, we don’t seem print photos as much as we used to. We do post them on social media to update friends and families what we’ve been up to lately, by sharing what we have eaten to sharing beautiful moments with the family. Aside from that, it is also partly to “archives” the photos in social media platforms as a back up just in case the computer crash or we lose our phone. The only back up left is the preview resolution of those stored in social media. Social media is known to be notorious in compressing the image so they save some space by allowing you to use the platform for free. When you need it, and when it is time to print, the compressed resolution images looks good from far… but it is far from good once you see it up close!

It’s always easy to convince ourselves that we will print the photos soon, someday soon… but there is never really a good time. We are pretty occupied with our daily tasks, caring for our own kids, running the household, juggling work, and caring for parents. Sorting photos and printing photos from the gazillion number of images stored in our phones is time-consuming and we tend to procrastinate on this task. We just had several clients who only keep “digital copies” on their computers and ask if we still keep them after many years as they have lost their images due to computer crashes.

Memories are like money, there is no purpose of it until you need it. Like when someone has passed on, or when our kids need a shot of our family for school the following week, or you need those pictures for a birthday announcement coming up. It is easy to not do anything now… only to find yourself in dire situations when you need it.

So here are our top 3 reasons why we feel printing photos are important:

1. It becomes a tangible memory

A printed photo becomes something our future kids can touch and look closely into. It’s displayed, its on the wall, its on the desk, its inside the album. You don’t need to search through the various files, folders and deep archives to find the images that you took years ago in the computer. Its there! Printed and hung on the wall or compiled in an album.

Just like when our parents showed us their old photos, it creates conversations about how our families were like when they were younger – how they used to climb on coconut trees or went for a swim in a longkang. Who would have thought our fierce aunties were that playful!

Mini details like these, helps to paint a picture of how our loved ones were once like and bring us closer to them. It’s very heartwarming to see our kids taking out the family albums or even those kindergarten graduation photos and making jokes about how small their siblings were or commenting that they still remember our relative who has passed away.

Plus, printed photos are more accessible for our non-tech savvy parents and our very young kids who we want to limit their screen time to the ‘wonders’ of phones and computers. They wouldn’t need to reach out to the phone or computer to find the files, its just there everyday.

Worst case scenario when you need them in a digital copy, have them converted.

Enjoy your photos every day you when you walk past where the images are being displayed.

2. It ties people to places, experiences and emotions

When we look at the image taken the first time, we might notice things like how we used to look. But as time passes, what we get to see are the moments, the emotions, and the experiences that we had with people that was with us.

The first few seconds from just looking at a photo immediately brings us back to our old homes, our old playgrounds, our old treasured memory. Sometimes when we pause for a little while and just take a look around us, we get to see how far our families have come and remember how we first started out. It ties us back to our roots and our purposes in life. Small things that we see on a photo, like that blanket we used to hug to sleep, reminds us of even the atmosphere, feelings, and scents of that particular time in our lives.

Our world is so fast-moving and there isn’t time to look for the images in our phones or our laptops; have it there ready every time and its great to just stop and re-live those moments…

3. It strengthens us

Lately with the fast-paced life, we get too pre-occupied with our work and we lose sight of our purposes in life and why we do what we do. Sometimes when days are low, we forget about how fortunate we still are to be where we are now. Some people place photo frames on their work-desks, some along the walls of their house, just to remind them of who we are and the people who have made the person we are today… and that even when we have bad days, we will always have our family behind us and in our hearts to push us through in life.

Our vision in Bambini as photographers is always to help families preserve their memories.

Memories is an essential part of us.
Memories brings people closer together.
Memories grows the love stronger.

We will always strive for that no matter how fast the digital world is changing. That is the reason why we at Bambini Photography always include printed photo in all of our packages even if it is just 1!

If you need ideas on how to turn your soft copies to tangible photos, do let us know and we can work with you to come up with something.

A Celebration of Time and Moment | Family Photography

There is a saying that goes, “Children Spell L O V E as T I M E. 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.”

We, at Bambini Photography are fervent believers of time because the nature of our work is such that we are surrounded by it. We are the moments capturers, photo studio who specialise in children and family photography.

Too often we hear parents say, “Can’t believe how fast they’ve grown, it felt just like yesterday when they are this small.”

Time and again we see familiar faces, families who have come to us year after year to have their photos taken with their children. We have in part become their family as we follow their stories, the newborns we once photographed have in turned became toddlers and subsequently young girls and boys.

Maternity Photoshoot Poses 101 – Studio Maternity Photography Singapore

The 40 weeks of carrying the baby in the tummy is a special experience for most and you witness the body changes everyday, baby bump growing, feeling the movements of another life within you.

 
This special phase in your life could be once for some, a few times for others. The feeling and experience during each pregnancy could be completely different.

 
It is during this time that some mum-to-be make it a point to make and preserve memories on this phase of their lives through a maternity photoshoot.

 
Having said that, many thhhhhought about it but this idea usually ends up KIV at the back of their mind because of the busy life people lead these days. One of the concerns mum to be have is whether they will look good on the photos…

They may be thinking:

 
“ the photos that are shown on the portfolio are all women who are blessed with good gene…”

 
Or

 
“I have no posing experience apart from my wedding photoshoot… how to take maternity photos”

 
Over the years of photographing blooming expectant mothers, flattering images are usually a combination of lighting, posing, styling, personality, angles, hair and make up of the subject.

 
In order to show the baby bump, the conventional way is usually via the profile shot. Our image style ranges from classy, joyous, soft, fun to moody. Every client is different with different personality, likes and preferences. We do have a series of most requested shots that we do most of the time. Occasionally, when we get to meet an adventurous mum-to-be/couple, we get to explore more variation of poses like the ones further down below.

 
Here you go… you can start practicing these poses in front of the mirror leading up to your maternity photoshoot and our photographers will guide you along during the day of the session:)

How Do I Decide? Studio Maternity or Milkbath Maternity Photoshoot?

I’m sure by now, many of you have seen those beautiful maternity milkbath images…

Now the question for many mummies-to-be is:
How do I decide which maternity photoshoot is better? 

Or which is more suitable?
Then there is the question if you can do both?

Firstly, there is no “which is better”, it’s which do you prefer? 

And regarding if you can do both?
Of course you can!


Here are some answers to the concerns you may have:

“I really like the pictures I see, but I’m not good at posing”

Here’s where our trained photographers play the part, we’re not expecting you to know how to pose, and we will guide you through every shot, up to where to place your hand, how to stand, or sit, or lie down, where to look.

Do you have a preferred side, we’ll work with that. Our photographers are all ladies too, and we know how it’s like when our hair is not looking the best – we’ll help you adjust your hair through the session too, and watch out for anything that is out of place.

If there is one thing in common for photographers, we love details – and we look at details when we are photographing you. We do our best to cover any little part and we need your help too and we’ll work together to create the images you love.

“It looks difficult to pose for those maternity milkbath shots…”

On the contrary, if you want to keep the posing to even a minimal with us, maternity milkbath is the way to go!

You are literally taking a milk spa, it’s a moisturizing soap we’re using to create the milky effect and you’re just soaking it in.

We’ll move around to get the best angles for you and occasionally guide you to where to place your hands and where to look or turn… That’s about it! Simple and easy. Beautiful images and soft supple skin after the shoot!

“I don’t have any suitable clothing or any nice clothes for photoshoot

But we have it! We have a selection in the studio that you can choose from. In one session, we usually do about 3 different styles so there is definitely enough looks for you.

We’re need your help to let us know if you would like to use our clothing and we’ll prepare them beforehand so when you come, we have everything ready for you!

If you need some help on what clothes you can bring from your own home to add on to what we have, you can find some inspiration here: 8 Tips to Dressing Your Bump

“Do I have to bring those nice fabrics you use for milkbath? But I don’t have any…

And you don’t have to bring any of those fabrics we use to drape and style for the maternity studio and milkbath images :)

They are all provided for in the studio, together with the floral elements we use in the milkbath. We have some flower crowns available as hair accessories too!

There are a few choices of colours, if you have a preference do let us know!

If you have a favourite in terms of choice for flowers, feel free to bring along some fresh flowers to incorporate into your milkbath photoshoot too!

“How can you ever say anything negative about your body after you have felt the dancing of life from inside your womb?”
– Amethyst Joy

“I want to have something to remember my pregnancy but I’m not sure if I’ll look good in photos…”

Don’t compare yourselves to models on magazines! Everything is photoshopped… And we photoshop too, but our goal is still to bring out the most natural and beauty of your pregnancy, so we won’t overdo the editing! We’re celebrating your curves and within you, you’re creating a new life :)

There are camera angles and lightings we can work with to create images to make you look flattering. Who doesn’t want that?

And what’s a better way to remember your memories of this moment than taking photos. We are here to be a part of your growing journey and after photographing hundreds and hundreds of mummies-to-be, and being women ourselves, we know your concerns on looking good and that is simply our job – to help you look good in photos.

“I’m concerned about my hair and make-up once it gets wet in the milkbath shots.”

Don’t worry about your face getting wet! It won’t be!

Your hair would get kind of wet, but not completely… And the wet hair is part of the look!
We will definitely be doing substantial amount of images with your hair still dry and if you have any curls done and leave getting the hair wet right at the end of the shoot.

If you like your hair in an updo, that’s great! Go with your preference, get your hair done how you like it.

We can attempt some hair-down shots towards the end of the shoot for some variety in your look as well.

All in all, we’re flexible. Let us know your preferences so we can adjust to your liking. If you don’t have any specific preference, we can recommend what we feel looks best on you too!
