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.

A Celebration of Time and Moment | Family Photography

There is a saying that goes, “Children spell love as time. 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.

The setting for the pictures have morphed with each passing year, from the ones taken in the studio when they are newborn to those taken outdoors when they’re all grown-up!

There is no bigger responsibility than taking their best impressions as a family, as an individual and capturing their personas on camera. It’s not only about photography but the relationship with the individual and the families that have made us their official family photographers and their trusts on us are the greatest reward.

There isn’t going to be a better time to celebrate your time and moment. If you are curious and want to find out more about the photography services we rendered, simply shoot us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg and we promise to get back to you in the nick of time ;)

Thank you Andrea and family! For choosing Bambini Photography year after year and allowing us to be a part of your journey as a family


Top 5 Favourite Outdoor Locations for Family and Maternity Photoshoots

Where should we head for our family photoshoots? Do you recommend shooting outdoors for maternity photoshoots? How would the photos turn out? We decided to put together the images we have captured at our favourite outdoor locations for you to see all of them at a glance! So, just scroll down! :D

Singapore Botanic Gardens

There’s so much to explore and different looks to photograph all within one location! The iconic pavillion is a must-have in your family photo! It’s playtime and break-time when we head to the swings, take a seat and let’s catch some evening breeze. Big trees that towers over you, a fascinating sight for your children and of course, running space in the fields! We can even head to the Jacob Ballas children’s garden – you know it’s designed for children when the security stops you when there is no accompanying child in sight to gain entry into the garden XD

Marina Barrage

The vast blue skies, yes. With all that strong wind we get there, remember to bring along your kites and we can have some fun flying them! Let us take the photos and you can be in the moment with your children. Nothing’s more precious than having shared conversations and shared memories – isn’t that what makes us feel most connected. Not forgetting our beautiful Singapore cityscape that we can capture in the background of our photos too!

East Coast Park

It’s the beach! Sun, sea and the breeze :D I’m already feeling all serene looking at this set of maternity images taken at East Coast Park. Get your long flowy maxi dresses, put on a flower crown and let’s go barefoot by the seashore. Have your hubby join in for your maternity photoshoot, take a stroll hand-in-hand, like a date in the park <3

Before After | Maternity & Family Outdoor Photography

You know those before & after images you see online? We’ve also shot it before with our clients, and recently we’ve been receiving more of such requests! It’s like charting your growing process as a family and I love it very much!

We didn’t discuss beforehand, but Sharmaine and her hubby came with their props for their maternity outdoor photoshoot and booked us again for an outdoor photoshoot when their daughter is around 1 and we recreated some of the shots we did the previous time~

It’s very personalized and we appreciate all our clients’ input of the ideas they have and the communication with our photographers :)

Thank you for choosing Bambini Photography as your choice! Not just as your maternity photographer, but coming back again for a newborn photoshoot and again! For a family photoshoot when your baby is coming to one year old :)

P.S. If you have photographed with us at Bambini Photography before and are interested to have one of these Before & After photos taken as well, do drop us an email to let us know and we see how we can go about making it happen for you.
