Hey ho, hail all pirates | Themed Children Photoshoot

pirates-theme-children-photoshoot-06

It’s not just another day in the studio. While some of us were busy photographing earlier, the doorbell dinged, the new theme set-up we’ve been waiting for has arrived!

After many requests from parents and children we met and photographed, we are happy to announce our latest Pirate-themed photoshoot.

A tale no less familiar to all of us, pirates are always such fun characters to know – with their fiery personas, countless stories of adventures, voyages to seek hidden treasures on their galleon with distinctive Jolly Roger flag.

Children simply love them! And we at Bambini Photography are not immune to it either. How can we not fall in love with courageous swashbucklers who are thirsty for adventures and are masters at navigating the seas?

Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean series have made it all the more irresistible for those who are fans of pirates.

Watch your little one squeal with delight as we pretend to be pirates out on an adventure! – brandishing their choice of swords and fight enemies as they go along – all in a safe environment while being photographed. (Don’t worry, the swords are made of foam and plastic!)

We want to capture your children at their happiest and most natural – that we believe happens when they are most enjoying themselves and having fun! Allowing them to explore and be themselves, that for us, is the greatest achievement.

P.S. We have another indoor themed photoshoot available. Ask our staff for the rest ;)

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.

If you are still in two minds about what to get for your friends, relatives, colleagues, bosses or even your family for this Christmas… there is still time to grab our gift vouchers. (Visit our online store here! Or click on the image below)

Gifts for this season! | Bambini Online Store | Family Photography

Time sure flies! It felt just like yesterday when we were rushing from one photography session to another, a flurry of hectic schedules that seemed to be a routine every end of the year, as families rushed to have their photos as they approach the transition to a new year.

With Christmas being just two months away, you will start seeing the familiar seasonal ornaments and lights being decked up across all malls in Singapore and also the iconic Orchard Road and carols blasted on speakers, as we usher the remaining end of the year in joy and peace, but not before the mad rush of getting everyone’s presents in order.

Make yours ultra special this year and also your loved ones by cutting the hassle of Christmas shopping through gifting something personal and heartfelt as present instead.

In the busyness of life we often found that we have missed on the special occasions and moments with our loved ones. At Bambini we want to encourage you to set aside time as a family on this special season, to reflect or even to just get together and let your special bonds be captured and immortalised.

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

One way of doing that is to present a thoughtful and lasting intimate photography sessions to your  family, friends, colleagues, confidante, bosses, where they can have their moments of togetherness encapsulated in beautiful family photos.

Christmas is after all, about spreading joy and happiness. What better way than to gift those in a form of a keepsake that they can cherish for a long time?

How to Get Kids to Engage and Smile For Camera | Children and Family Photography Singapore

As parents ourselves, we know that things can get pretty out of hand when children are involved. Nothing ever goes as planned but more often than not, it is exactly that unpredictability that makes the spontaneous moments that we remember for years and make up for the stories that continue to haunt them as we retell them at family gatherings.

Photographing children can be quite daunting for unseasoned photographers. Most children do not like posing for the camera and get easily distracted by their surroundings and that can be difficult for photographers to capture the moment as everything is unraveling way too fast. So out-of-focus and blurry pictures are often common when it comes to photographing kids.

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

Having learned, played and photographed thousands of babies, toddlers, children and teenagers, we can confidently say that we are quite the pro when it comes to children photography.

So today we are going to share with you some insider tips and insights on how to ace it.

Children comes in all shapes, sizes and behaviours. You can consider yourself lucky if you get to work with children who take instructions easily but in most cases it is hardly the case – they are children. And the best thing about children is, they don’t follow the rules.

 

  1. Breaking the ice

Just before we approach any photography session, it’s best to leave it to the parents to gain a better understanding of the kids. Parents will be asked to fill-up questionnaires to help us know about the children.

Yong En says, “The information they give us can really help us break the ice with the kids and family. If we know what they [the kids] enjoy doing, we’ll know how to engage them.”

 

  1. Being patient and observant pay off

Patience is the number one key when dealing with the little ones. We don’t have to coerce kids to do what they don’t want to do. We absolutely advised parents against disciplining their children when things get out of hand during a photoshoot. It should be a fun and rewarding experience for all, so no one should be upset. This is the time where your children can get messy, dynamic and spontaneous for our camera to capture their personality.

Yong En recalls this incident where, “There was a kid who wasn’t keen on having his photos taken, then I saw that his bag is pinned with minecraft badges… so I figured he must like it… I asked him about it and he started opening up. The rest of the shoot in the botanic gardens became me and him out in a minecraft world attacking minecraft monsters. It was really fun!”

It worked and sometimes we need just to pay closer attention to get the children’s.

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

  1. Playtime is mandatory

“Telling kids to pose and smile don’t always work, so we PLAY, have fun, eat snacks. It helps if they are your children’s favourite”, says Yong En.

We laid out all the toys, balloons, cupcakes, kitchen sets, for the children to go crazy with. It is after all their time to shine so let them do their job and everything will be swell.

 

  1. Being a part-time clown works too

We believe in engaging with the children. Because what’s a photography session without some fun injected to it?

Some of the things we do include, tickling the kids with fake flowers. Making funny fart noises , peek-a-boo, or sneezing just to catch their attention.

Even our singing voices are put to the test at times. “There was a kid who only stops crying when I sang nursery rhymes, and would immediately cry again when the song ends. He was only a few months old and singing really engaged him. I have never sung so much and so long in my life. I felt like I just did a Hi-5 concert. Hahaha…”, adds Yong En.

 

  1. Know your subjects in and out, and if you don’t find out!

Always get to the children’s level, not just eye-level. What we found that works wonder is to keep talking to them, eye-to-eye. Helping them to get comfortable with us, the photographers is crucial, because children tend to be wary and become withdrawn in an unfamiliar environment.

Ask them a bunch of questions, it might take a while for them to answer, but once you hit the right one, they will start opening up and smile for you. And the rest is history. This works highly with children who are on the shy side.

 

  1. Treat everything with spontaneity

There are children who just can’t sit still, no matter what tricks you have up your sleeves. In turn, asking them to stay quiet for a shot can upset them. So making sure we are versatile and flexible is key to getting the perfect shot.

Yong illustrates one typical incident, “ Asking kids who love running up and down to sit still won’t work… maybe for the first few shots… but forcing them can upset the kid, but if they don’t do it, it can upset the parents. So I always go for the rewarding system. I would tell the kids to run but specifically cue them to smile while running, in which gives me the perfect moment to take my shots. So they can be running round and round for me to get my shots, but everyone is happy. And that’s all that matters eventually.”

For kids with siblings, we would usually encourage them to play together and set it so that both personalities are captured, these usually make perfect ‘siblings-moments’ photos.

We feel that should be enough for now to equip you with a better understanding of the behind-the-scenes. Knowing what gear and equipment to use and planning ahead is necessary but it all boils down to the basics, which is, knowing your subjects and to be in tune and intuitive to their needs are what makes good children photographer.
