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!

Top Tips for Maternity Photo Shoot | Maternity Photography Singapore

Maternity Portrait Photo Studio

 

As you witness your belly swells, you find your heart swells with so much love with each passing day.

A feeling that is familiar to those who have experienced and are in the moment experiencing motherhood.

Maternity photoshoot became a new concept ever since 1995 when Vanity Fair had Demi Moore looking all glorious with her belly swelling on its cover page. It was an overnight sensation that sparked the talk about a new age of photography, breaking barriers and gave rise to the prominence of maternity photoshoot.

A photographer’s experience in Posing, Lighting, Styling and their Sensitivity towards the changes in your body are things that make an enjoyable maternity photoshoot.

With over 500 maternity photoshoots, there is no doubt that our photographers at Bambini have a tip or two in capturing the special time of your life.

We have done many different types of maternity images from ‘Land’ to ‘Water’, Studio to Outdoor, – from Classic to Modern, Dark & Moody to Light & Airy, Monotone to Colourful… We are sure you will find something that suits what you have in mind…

And of course, not forgetting our most recent introduction of our Maternity Milk Bath Photography, which you can do a combination of studio ‘Land’ shots with the family; followed by relaxing in nourishing Milk Bath in the tub on the second half of the shoot all done in the studio. Bambini Photography is the only studio in Singapore doing Maternity studio and milkbath in one session. All you need to do is let us know in advanced if you like to add on Milk Bath to your Maternity Photoshoot. Just turn up, relax and leave the rest to us.

One of our Client’s Story:

“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.” – Felicia

To all fathers out there | Family Photography

Dedicating this post to all fathers out there, just as we have promised…

Men who are enablers, men who have provided, men who have taught, men who protect, men who spend their days constructing and reconstructing fatherhood.

Let us rewind and understand more about how fatherhood came to be. Centuries ago, fathers primarily served as breadwinners, disciplinarians, someone who instilled moral and religious values – caring for children was left only to women. These days fatherhood takes on a more evolved role, gone are the days when fathers merely provided for the family financially.

Modern-day fathers come in many forms and we have been blessed to work alongside, get involved with and witness fatherhood through our family photography. To see a relationship between mother and child is heartwarming and special; yet when we witness the dynamics between father and child, it speaks for itself.

It is said that the greatest mark of a father is how he treats his children when no one is looking. As an observer and photographer, we notice the subtlety to capture the bonds between children and their fathers.

It is never easy to be a father, we’ve heard it from our clients. How clueless they were when they first started, where they do not know what hits them most of the time. It is scary and daunting, but rewarding at the same time. Fatherhood is not something to be learned in school but something you experience along the way with the birth of each child. Watching your child grow, noticing their quirks, realizing they have picked up your habits and growing together.

Naveen Jain once said that, “ Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person.”

His words cannot be more true.

So for this Father’s day, do take the time to give thanks and acknowledge your father for what he has done and not.

They are the hands that hold you when you need the guidance. They are the ones who will come down and talk to your bullies. Their willpower and tenacity has put you through school. They are the ones to give you a piggyback ride. They have shown you the ropes.

To all the men who have shown us the ropes, we thank you.

We dedicate this to you, all fathers, dads, padre, abah, papa, papi, bapak.

If you’re thinking about having your moments captured by us, do drop us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg and we can chat more planning a memorable photo session for your father and you.

Sometimes the best gift is one best captured frozen in time.

Regards,
Bambini

 


Gift Vouchers | Family Photography

Gift [gift].
One vowel and three consonents made up this wondorous word.
The definition from the dictionary that we find most befitting would be ‘to give something voluntary to another person without compensation.’

Gifts are wonderful things that build memories and foster strong relationship. The thing about gifting is that you receive so much happiness at the end knowing you’ve made the someone very happy.

The process of picking the right gift however, left most of us scratching our heads. We had to factor in hobbies and interests in the quest of selecting the perfect present and more often than not we end up buying something we know will be left in the storage room collecting dust.

We forget that these days that practicality and interesting gifts are actually personalisation, and personalisation far outweighs the rest, taking the art of gifting a notch up.

Gone are the frivolous days of spending time roaming in aisles of malls because the best kinds of present are the ones that contain meaning and memories to remind that recipient of a special time.

Being a family photographer we have seen how much we have made a difference, giving a family that warm fuzzy feeling when they see their photographs together.

Photographs are powerful and can be somewhat binding. It reminds us of what used to be and it attest the time we were in.

As Susan Sontag puts it, “All photographs are momento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”

The thought of gift vouchers for Bambini came about after a happy client whose newborn we photographed asked for it for her friend who was going to deliver her baby the month after. Instead of getting baby products wrapped in cellophane paper, she wanted a gift with a more personal touch and lasting, to remind her friend of the next milestone in her life- motherhood.

Having photographed hundreds of newborns, we have imprinted something for parents and children to remember by, a memoir of sort. We have captured a week’s old grin and wrinkly feet and first laughs frozen in pictures.

We photographed families who never had their pictures taken professionally before and family portraits provide a solace for parents whose children have grown-up, and now continents apart.

Being in this industry we have experienced the beauty and joy photographs can bring to someone and we want to share it.

Our gift vouchers come personalised and make a wonderful present for parents, friends, families, colleagues, employees, bosses, basically anyone you can think of.
