No Mess | Newborn Home Photography

This little boy was so sound asleep for his newborn photography session! As usual we brought our load of props for the shoot and by the time we have everything set-up, I feel like I used up all the living room space… oops (it was really alot of props.) And during the session, you don’t quite have the time to care to fold your fabrics properly after using it, it was fabric #1 then throw it one side, on to fabric #2 then leave it another side, then on to the next wrap or hat or pose… (so I always feel like I create such a mess in people’s house… hahaha) I do pack up! Just in case you thought we really leave behind a mess…

In fact, if you’re having us over at your place for a newborn photography session anytime soon, and if you see me start folding stuff when baby is feeding, changing, etc. Don’t misunderstand me as being eager to leave, I feel like the state of my workplace is the state of my mind, so folding my mess and packing a little helps me stay organized and focus too. (Or maybe I really shouldn’t be leaving all the fabrics I used all over the place, but just at ONE side, so it will be organized mess – but you know, that is the ideal… haha)

Well, mess or no mess, (getting poop/pee on the fabric or myself, counts as mess too, haha) – you won’t see it in the photos :) My personal opinion of a good photo is when it is clean and clutter-free – there is nothing that distracts the viewer from the subject or who the focus of the image is on.

Here’s leaving you, beautiful newborn images instead! No mess – clean, distraction-free photographs.

P.S. And I love the little red bow mummy and daddy had their baby boy (last image!)

Sleeping Child – Part 1 | Newborn Home Photography

(www.bambiniphoto.sg) newborn-photography-home

The Milky Way upon the heavens
Is twinkling just for you
And Mr. Moon, he came by
To say goodnight to you

I’ll sing for you, I’ll sing for mother
We’re praying for the world
And for the people everywhere
Gonna show them all we care

Oh, my sleeping child the world’s so wild
But you’ve built your own paradise
That’s one reason why
I’ll cover you, sleeping child

The ‘Perfect’ Parents | Newborn Home Photography

There are no perfect parents.

Human to begin with, are not perfect.

We often hear parents who chastise or gossip about other parents for not being ‘good parents’.

What defines good parent or good parenting even?

Researchers, Child Psychologist, Counselors, Progressive Parents and many more have come out with all sort of theories on what it takes to be good parents.

One of those include never laying a hand or raise your voice on a child, dissing constant praises and encouragement – in all parents have to be saint and sage-like.

Mothers, ideally are still expected to be the one to care for the children, be at their beck and call because it is them who is the ultimate caretaker.

Those who defy the odds are then shunned, gossiped and criticised.

When it comes to children, almost everything seemed sacrilegious.

Parents often stressed and battle with the notion of what is right and is wrong and should be avoided for fear of damaging their children.

We all want to strive for perfection, some because they do want to repeat what they’ve been through, others, just want to be the perfect role model for their children.

However it is also important to note that sometimes in order to achieve perfection, we might lose a little of the rawness of what’s real.

There is not mathematical formulae to being the ultimate parents but we can all remember that at the end, it bores down to what the journey parents and child go through together through mutual understanding and most importantly what brings the utmost happiness to your child.

 “Parenting has nothing to do with perfection. Perfection isn’t even the goal, not for us, not for our children. Learning together to live well in an imperfect world, loving each other despite or even because of our imperfections, and growing as humans while we grow our little humans, those are the goals of gentle parenting. So don’t ask yourself at the end of the day if you did everything right. Ask yourself what you learned and how well you loved, then grow from your answer. That is perfect parenting.”
L.R. Knost, The Gentle Parent: Positive, Practical, Effective Discipline
