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.

5 Things You Need to Know About Newborn Photography Before Hiring A Newborn Photographer

1. Know Why and What You Want

I know, I know… it is isn’t always straight forward to figure out what you want in life.

First thing first… Are you looking at something that is “in” thing today which chances are, will be dated and over in a couple of years? While you want to keep it, on the other hand it is just an eye sore. Think about those shoulder pads… may look good if you are going to an 80’s party, but I am sure, you will probably be saying “it was the fashion trend at that time!” whenever you have a visitor. But of course, some of you love that and there is nothing wrong if you prefer to live today to its fullest and don’t worry about the future.

There is on the other hand, people who love classic minimalistic stuff which will stand the test of time. Think Rolex watch, Mercedes Benz kind of classic styling that still look great today.

Or Perhaps, you are bit of both and say, “Why choose?”

We could brain storm with you on what you love and suggest something that fit in your vision on what you want to achieve for your newborn baby. After all, it is a decision you make like when you had your wedding. Its one in a lifetime thing for your baby and you really don’t want them growing up and say… “ewww”…

Have a chat with us and see how we can bring your vision to life… 

2. What Kind of Skills Do You Need Your Photographer to Have?

This may not be obvious and you will only know it when you use the service. Technical know-how is a basic stuff that every photographer should know. An accredited master photographer gives you the assurance that they know their technical stuff.

However, beyond the basic technical ability to conduct a safe and comfortable shoot, is the ability of managing the baby.

A photographer who has managed a lot of babies will be someone that know how to safely manage your baby and offer you the experience.
 
As parents, your only concern should be, best images done by someone who know the technical stuff and deliver the safest possible way in capturing those special moments in your life.

 Talk to our professional team of accredited master photographers and see how we can help.

3. Choose a newborn photographer can take great shots and knows how to handle the baby well too!

#1 priority would be the safety of your baby. What define a great newborn photographers like ours are the soft skills that manages your baby through out the shoot and these includes:

* being able to understand and read the behaviour of the newborn

* anticipate moments, to predict a newborn’s need, 

* soothe wailing babies, 

* where to touch in the face to make a tot grin for the camera.

* knowing when enough is enough for the baby

* how to calm anxious first time parents

* knowing that baby is about to poop;

* knowing if the baby had been ‘fully burped’ before continuing;

* knowing when baby needs a feed despite the fixed 2.5-3 hour feeding schedule.

The soft skills our photographers learnt over the years did not come naturally. Each go through ‘excruciating’ yet memorable moments of being urinated on, pooped on, vomited on and from one diapers to another and the experience. All the mentioned soft skills required to be a baby whisperer is earned through hard work and working and photographing different newborns in various circumstances.

It is not through sheer chance that we become one of the leading Singapore Newborn Photographers. When our parent company, Tomato Photo started a decade ago, newborn photography was almost unheard of in Singapore. Most new parents are still sticking to the traditions of confinements, not keen on the idea of going out of the house before the 30-days period- much less having to be photographed. The trends are changing, words got around, people budgeted for newborn photoshoots and newborn photography gained an edge these days, as modern parents realised the importance of capturing memories of their little bundle at their early stages of being born.

4. Newborn photography can be done both at home or in the studio. 

Majority of the people think that the only way to achieve professional looking shots is at photographer’s studio.

We understand that people still would like to observe their confinement, hence having professional quality images is about transporting the equipments and props to your home and we love doing that because our vision is simply to help parents capturing and preserving memories.

Of course, sometimes, it is nice to “escape” from home and go to a studio, we have built ours as cosy as home, so you can come and relax while we do all the work for you while you enjoy the the process of the shoot.

So be it in home or studio, the quality is assured with bambini and to figure out which one works best for you, give our team a call and they are able to help you out.

With 3 professional newborn photographers, we always have a spot for you.

 

5. One newborn photoshoot session can last up to 3 hours.

Each session often last for up to three hours with nursing, nappy changing breaks in between. For mothers who are still recovering from delivery, they can always opt to have a photoshoot to be done at home.

There is no one way to doing newborn photography especially with the myriad of styles available in the market these days. Parents have their own individual preferences to the styles they are after when hiring a newborn photographer. Some prefer a simplistic minimalistic approach for an artistic results, other parents want a natural, lifestyle approach that captures essences of their young family and others love the colours and that the wraps and props do to dress up the shoot. 

For us here in Bambini Photography, our vision is to make memories, tell your stories through professional photography for generations to come. In order to achieve the results that you are looking for, we work closely with clients to understand what clients’ expectations and wants are. Although we can do various styles of newborn shoots, we tend to lean towards keeping it simple to create minimalistic look to show more of the baby, their expressions and the connection between baby and the family. All our newborn shoots comes with images in colour and black and white.

Babies grow up fast, in a blink of an eye, memories can easily become fuzzy. It is precisely why this type of photography is so important. 

Tips for those who are keen to engage us for your newborn babies, simply talk to us about what you want and not want. Involve siblings in the family picture, and bring along precious momentos that you want to include during photoshoot.

We’ll be more than happy to answer your queries, simply drop us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg or call or WhatsApp us at +6587171558 or Message Us in Messenger so we can chat further about creating your family moments.

Fatilyn was great! Very professional, quick and good with babies and older kids. We did the newborn (8 days old) plus family photoshoot. The basic edited photos were turned around very quickly and sent to us for selection. We would recommend Bambini to others especially those families who are nervous about how their newborn will be handled and those having trouble organizing their active little kids. Bambini will put you at ease and your photos will be perfect!
