Celebrating Motherhood This Mother’s Day – Family Photography Photoshoot

Its the time of the year again where we see mothers of all ages receive flowers, taken out for meals, enjoying the day with their loved ones. We can feel the day filled with love and warmth.

To us, everyday is Mother’s Day but there is one particular day in a year that is dedicated just for mothers. On the 2nd Sunday in the month of May, this is the day the world celebrates Mother’s Day.  We get to see mothers from young to old receiving flowers; 1-5 generations of mothers celebrating Mother’s Day with a special meal with the family; Baby girl, mum, grandma to great/great grandmas spending the day together visiting /revisiting places of interest reminiscing memories spent with the family.

At Bambini Photography, we are privilege to see many families come through our door to celebrate their motherhood journey in the form of photographic memories. From maternity to newborn to family to extended generation family photography.

Here is a short video of some of the families that comes through our door for us to document their love and bond together as a family. All of us at Bambini Photography wishes all mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day!

“The greatest heroes in life are those that never give up on someone. They stick it out and make it work. They sacrifice things in their life, in order to help others grow. They give up what they want because someone needs it more. They work hard and overcome adversity. They fail for a moment, but get back up on their feet to show others they don’t have to stay down. They show their loved ones that love is not “proved” by conformity. They teach others that having a voice is a sign of courage, and they will not stay silent to make people feel comfortable. They are fearless and will do whatever it takes to bring about the greatness in the ones they love because doing so brings them peace. Their name is—MOM.”

As the topic suggests, today we are going to talk about mothers and motherhood. With Mother’s Day drawing near, we couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to acknowledge their presence, thus we are dedicating this blog to all women who have yet to become mothers, mothers-to-be, women who have mothered and women who have become grandmothers.

Mothers, the highly-complex creatures who have us cowering in fear, look up in admiration, made sure we never go hungry, turned to when feeling troubled, shoulders to cry on, that very special being who seemed to always be there when we need them- for most of us who are lucky to have them still.

We, at Bambini Photography is fortunate to have met and photographed mothers-  young, old, feisty, classy, strong, courage, caring, dramatic, brave, placid, overbearing, emotional, subservient, dominant, soft, dependable and the lists go on. There never seemed to be enough adjectives, positive and negative that can and have been used to describe mothers. They are wonderful and almost magical.

One of the perks of being a family photography company is that we get to interact and see them in action every single day.

We have met new mothers and help give some little tricks on how to calm their crying newborn during photoshoots.  We have also learned from experienced and gung-ho mothers when we witnessed them disciplining their kids when they get too unruly during their outdoor photography sessions. We have captured  family photographs made up of mothers that span three generations. We have fulfilled photo retouching requests from family who have lost their mothers.

From all that, we have awed, we have been touched and most of all, we have been taught- and that is the power that is bestowed upon mothers.

There is no one size-fits-all when it comes to mothering but one thing for certain, it is not an easy feat to be a mother. And no, we are not going to elaborate and tell you a story about the difficulty of labour and the immense pain it involved, we’ll save that for another day.

Today we would like to celebrate the sacrifice that all mothers have made for their children, small or big, significant and insignificant, they all deserve the same attention.

So to all mothers out there, we at Bambini Photography would like to raise our glasses for you, for everything you have done and have yet to do and for being you.

We hope to continue to be awed and inspired by mothers all around us, and to share that joy and experience we have with others.

If you nod your head when you read this, go up to your mom now and give them a hug. If they’re somewhere else, send them a text to let them know you’re thinking about them, If you are the ones who’ve grieved and lost your mother, call out to them in your prayers and thoughts. After all,  it is the little act and thoughts that count in the end.

For those of you who liked what you see and want to have your photos taken with your mom, have a family photography session or simply just want to find out more about the photography services we have in-house,  simply send us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg. We promise to get back to you as soon as we can :)

And to you dads, fathers, papas, don’t feel left out because we’ll dedicate a blog to you all on Father’s Day.


Happy Mothers’ Day! | Studio, Home & Outdoor Photography

“When God Created Mothers”

When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of “overtime” when the angel appeared and said. “You’re doing a lot of fiddling around on this one.”

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)And God said, “Have you read the specs on this order?” She has to be completely washable, but not plastic. Have 180 moveable parts…all replaceable. Run on black coffee and leftovers. Have a lap that disappears when she stands up. A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a disappointed love affair. And six pairs of hands.”

The angel shook her head slowly and said. “Six pairs of hands…. no way.”(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

It’s not the hands that are causing me problems,” God remarked, “it’s the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have.”

That’s on the standard model?” asked the angel. God nodded.

One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks, ‘What are you kids doing in there?’ when she already knows. Another here in the back of her head that sees what she shouldn’t but what she has to know, and of course the ones here in front that can look at a child when he goofs up and say. ‘I understand and I love you’ without so much as uttering a word.”

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)God,” said the angel touching his sleeve gently, “Get some rest tomorrow….”

I can’t,” said God, “I’m so close to creating something so close to myself. Already I have one who heals herself when she is sick…can feed a family of six on one pound of hamburger…and can get a nine year old to stand under a shower.”

The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly. “It’s too soft,” she sighed.

But tough!” said God excitedly. “You can imagine what this mother can do or endure.”

Can it think?”

Not only can it think, but it can reason and compromise,” said the Creator.

Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek.

There’s a leak,” she pronounced. “I told You that You were trying to put too much into this model.”

It’s not a leak,” said the Lord, “It’s a tear.”(www.bambiniphoto.sg)family-photography-studio

What’s it for?”

It’s for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness, and pride.”

You are a genius, ” said the angel.

Somberly, God said, “I didn’t put it there.”
