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.

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!

Capturing the beats of the hearts | Newborn Photography Singapore

 

A great newborn photographer knows how to work with angles, textures, plays with shadows to create depth.

What makes one an exceptional newborn photographer, besides his or her uncanny knowledge in controlling light, textures, shadows and angles, are their abilities to bide time – waiting for the perfect opportunity before they click the shutter – and to understand and read behaviours of newborns.

An exceptional photographer is someone who has learned to anticipate moments, to predict a newborn’s need, knowing how to sooth wailing babies, and where to touch in the face to make a tot grin for the camera.

It is not through sheer chance that we become one of the leading Singapore newborn photographers.

All the mentioned soft skills required to be a baby whisperers are earned through hard work and working and photographing different newborns in various circumstances.

Newborn photography is usually done in the studio or home during the first two weeks of birth when the baby requires lengthy stretches of sleep and still at a very “mold-able” state. Each session often lasted 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, some parents prefer a minimalistic approach for an artistic results, other parents want a natural, lifestyle approach that captures essences of their young family. To achieve good results, we place great emphasis on communicating with clients to understand their expectations and wants.

The beauty of this type of photography is capturing the uniqueness and details of each baby- the Mongolian blue spots, tiny toes and fingers, distinctive cheeky grins, wispy hair, the sweet little yawn, anguish expression before they bawled. Even intimate feeding moments between mom and baby can evoke many treasured memories for years to come.

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

Why Photographs matter… | Newborn, Maternity, Family Photography | Bambini Gift Vouchers

www.bambiniphoto.sg

“I would part with my wallet, phones and camera but definitely try to negotiate for my memory card”, said a friend, when asked a hypothetical question of what she would do during a tussle with a robber.

Call it bravery or lunacy, we can all agree that the statement above hold some truths. Ask your friends or people about what they when they have to vacate their homes during an emergency, chances are they would take their most prized photographs along with important documents.

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 and immortalise our most precious moments into images.

Photographs are 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 serve 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.

From small things big things grow | Studio Photography Singapore

It’s no secret that we’ve gotten bigger, just as the babies we’ve photographed, we too are growing.

As family photographers we are always on the lookout to inject different and fun backdrops to include in our indoor photoshoot session.

Therefore, we are excited to unveil a new studio that we’ve recently acquired and revamped! It’s no secret that we’ve gotten bigger, just like our growing number of families, we need an equally bigger space to accommodate everyone.

For those who’ve been to our studio at Ubi, our new studio is just a door down from our current one. It can house bigger families, so you can include ah gong, ah ma, your third aunt to tenth aunt for a grand family portrait.

Here is  glimpse of the space that we have. You can do a touch and go from end-to-end. Children now have bigger areas to run around, cycle and just have fun!

We have taken thousands of photos outdoors and indoors and both provide very different vibes to your family photos. We love both outdoor and indoor but just for today, let us talk more about the benefits of photographing indoor with studio equipments.

Perfection at every angle
The weather in Singapore can be quite unpredictable. Sometimes it is sunny before the onset of rain. Your makeup and clothing [especially the children] can get soiled and dirty because of outdoor elements. Sun glares can potentially resulted in distorted light patches in photos.

Classic and artistic
Shoots taken in photography studio are usually more formal with serious undertone than those taken outdoors. For you who would like to opt for an elegant portrait that can be cherished for a long time, studio can be a great option to create a polished photos that will impress those who see them.

Clean lighting or dim lighting? Not a problem
Photography is about “playing” with lights. The ability to control lighting is one skill that most top photographers possess. In the studio, we have full control of lighting to ensure consistency in your photographs. Through the play of lights, we can create different mood that you want to see in your family portrait. Now that’s something!

Going crazy with background
Possibly one of the best thing in any photo studio. You can achieve so much with different backdrops. To bring out your colourful personality, change the backdrop to your vibrant colour. To get a classic and timeless look, you can set the mood with dark and nude backdrop anytime.

Convenience and parking spot guaranteed!
The key to shooting outdoor is communication and to ensuring that location is properly relayed to our customer. One wrong exit and you’d end up going in circles to find the promised meeting point.
Photographing indoor eliminates all that, because venue is fixed and most importantly parking spot is guaranteed. Also it can be very helpful for families with small children and elderly who are physically challenged. You also don’t have to worry about toilets and amenities, because we have all that.

A must for all newborn photoshoot
Shooting indoors for newborn is not something that is set in stone but likely, the best place when it comes to newborn photography. Mothers will have a private space to nurse with access to hot water, diapers, and toilet.


Now we’ve listed it out. The next time you’re in dilemma whether to have your photo session indoor or outdoor, you can read this and make your choice.

Talk to our photographer about what you want to with your photos. Do you want a large canvas prints, artwork paper, conventional photos or just in digital formats? We have done, sealed and delivered them all.

If you want to know more or plain convinced that you want us to be your photographer, drop us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg.

We can chat further about creating a memorable photo session for your glorious moments.
