Watching Rinihartini’s Family Grow – Family Photography Singapore

We consider ourselves lucky. Lucky to be able to witness the love and care in families, and watch them grow from the shoots they’ve had with us through the years.

One of the most common reason why people come to have a professional photoshoot is to celebrate and capture the moment. Celebrate the milestones of a person’s life such as birthday, children, mum, dad, grandparents, years of wedding anniversary, new addition to the family, wedding, having a newborn baby, baby’s milestones or graduations.

For some it starts with their first Maternity Shoot as a couple, then a 6-Months Baby Shoot, then a Family Shoot, and then a Generational Family Shoot. Sometimes, the list goes on because photos are never too much – every major milestone is different. 

Too often we hear parents say, “It feels like it was just yesterday when they were little.” Time passes us by, and before you know it, our babies are all grown.

The best part of having your photos taken every milestone? Is being able to watch your family change and grow over time again and again, and being able to remember the little moments and feelings that came along with it. We may have different reasons to why we are always taking photos, even if it’s of the same people. Being able to capture our journey, allows our history to be something our future kids can be a part of, from just looking at the photos – letting them see and know who we were once like, how we were like. Your memories become theirs.

We saw two beautiful people who are now parents of two. Dear Rinihartini, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey, to capture the precious milestones in your life and see your little family grow bigger. We could not express our awe of the love you have as a family. We hope that one day your children could feel it too from looking at the photos. 

It all began when Rinihartini and Nizam booked their first maternity shoot with us in 2016. Can you believe it? It’s been two years now. So much has changed. 

And they became three! The couple booked a 2-Months Baby photoshoot with us and would you just look their baby. As much as we love Newborn Photography, there’s something about 1-2 Months Photoshoot that makes it precious in its own way. We love their facial expressions and the special moments when parents are carrying and sniffing their babies. They will never be this tiny again. 

Sometimes, we manage to get similar looking poses of the babies from photoshoots that we’ve taken in different years – like the two images above & below! Two photos that say a thousands of words. 10 months difference… and their baby turned 1-year old for their Cake Smash Photoshoot.

When Rinihartini was expecting her second child, we felt very honoured to be part of her journey to document this moment again. Some might wonder, why do some mummies have a photoshoot for every pregnancy? Doesn’t it look the same? Here are some reasons why mummies take photos of all of their pregnancies:

1) Mummies get to reminisce each pregnancy

Every pregnancy is different. Pregnancy itself is so special. Your first-born – you were excited and thrilled. Not exactly sure what is to come, but ready to take in and learn everything for your baby together, first time as a family.

Second child – you are feeling more prepared and calm for your second pregnancy. But now, you are thrilled to share your excitement with your first-born, seeing him or her responding to having another little brother or sister.

2) Building a significant moment for the elder siblings to remember about having another sibling

Sometimes we can’t remember everything that happened during our childhood when we are older. Celebrating sometimes helps to build a significant moment that could help them remember in the future, of the time when the family was expecting another baby together. 

3) Getting everyone involved in the change and growth

While pregnancy can feel like it’s a solo job for the mummy at times, going out for a breather and spending time with the family can get the kids involved! Rubbing the tummy, kissing the tummy and more. Some elder siblings might get a little fearful of changes too. Spending the time with them to celebrate makes them feel that having a newborn baby coming into the family is fun. It becomes a family activity. 

And the family becomes four! The fun part – a photo of the whole family. Might be tricky :D, but definitely worth the time.

Photos are sentimental. These are the things families look back to and remember how far they’ve gone as a family. It may even be a source of motivation to them, the reason why we keep going. 

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.”

Being able to watch Rinihartini’s family and many families grow, and to provide a tangible memory for families is the greatest reward to us.

Taking the outdoors, indoors… | Maternity Composite Photography

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

Pregnancy is a celebration, a triumphant moment for women.

The best part about our job is we get to capture the beauty, joy and significance of pregnancy with maternity photoshoot.
We love every aspect of it!

Metaphrasing femininity into pictures, putting into picture that pregnancy glow in all its glory. We are constantly pushing ourselves to do better. To study flattering poses, angles, lighting, finding appropriate props and techniques. And lately, we’ve been toying with the idea of photo composition.

Photo composition is nothing new in the photography world, a technique often used by award-winning photographers to relay their stories – you have probably chanced on a few in art galleries or glossy magazines. It allows the photographer to keep a focus on the subject matter and not other details in the scene, and a give a skilled photographer the flexibility, however will work on carefully constructing a scene to help produce incredible images.

Traditionally there are two types of maternity photography- indoor and outdoor. Indoor shoot is done usually in the studio or at a client’s home. While outdoor photoshoot can be done in botanical parks or beaches, where nature is involved.

Some women chose a studio setting with a certain photography style in mind [artistic, bare-it-all images] and those who are late in their pregnancy might prefer studio over outdoor for convenience’s sake. While the idea of outdoor photoshoot is tempting, the need for frequent toilet trips may not bode well in places where toilets are scarce, and the unpredictable weather, too rainy or too sunny – may not be the most comfortable for most people…

This is where photo composition work its magic wand…  through it we are able to create ethereal outdoor background for every photoshoot done in the studio, minus the inconvenience.

The results of photo compositions are often dreamy and magical. You can find yourself lost in the lush woods and forest filled with orange and red hues or have your picture taken in a place where the sky is azure blue and sand so white it hurts your eyes, in a good way. Those are the wonders we would like to achieve for you.

And what are the odds of you baring it all with your pregnant bod amidst a lush greenery? You can now do so without the peering eyes of strangers ;)

If you still can’t picture how it looks like, we have provided some images for you to have a better idea. Like what you’re seeing? (All images in these post are taken in the studio!)

Talk to us and we will advise you about what works and not, to create a memorable images to last for a lifetime.
