Capturing the beats of the hearts | Newborn Photography Singapore

 

A great newborn photographer knows how to work with angles, textures, plays with shadows to create depth.

What makes one an exceptional newborn photographer, besides his or her uncanny knowledge in controlling light, textures, shadows and angles, are their abilities to bide time – waiting for the perfect opportunity before they click the shutter – and to understand and read behaviours of newborns.

An exceptional photographer is someone who has learned to anticipate moments, to predict a newborn’s need, knowing how to sooth wailing babies, and where to touch in the face to make a tot grin for the camera.

It is not through sheer chance that we become one of the leading Singapore newborn photographers. When our parent company, Tomato Photo started a decade ago, newborn photography was almost unheard of in Singapore. Most new parents are still sticking to the traditions of confinements, not keen on the idea of going out of the house before the 30-days period- much less having to be photographed. The trends are changing, words got around and newborn photography gained an edge these days, as modern parents realised the importance of capturing memories of their little bundle at their early stages of being born.

The soft skills our photographers learned did not come naturally. Each go ‘excruciating’ yet memorable moments of being urinated on, pooped on, vomited on and from one diapers to another. All the mentioned soft skills required to be a baby whisperers are earned through hard work and working and photographing different newborns in various circumstances.

Newborn photography is usually done in the studio or home during the first two weeks of birth when the baby requires lengthy stretches of sleep and still at a very “mold-able” state. Each session often lasted for up to three hours with nursing, nappy changing breaks in between. For mothers who are still recovering from delivery, they can always opt to have a photoshoot to be done at home.

There is no one way to doing newborn photography, some parents prefer a minimalistic approach for an artistic results, other parents want a natural, lifestyle approach that captures essences of their young family. To achieve good results, we place great emphasis on communicating with clients to understand their expectations and wants.

The beauty of this type of photography is capturing the uniqueness and details of each baby- the Mongolian blue spots, tiny toes and fingers, distinctive cheeky grins, wispy hair, the sweet little yawn, anguish expression before they bawled. Even intimate feeding moments between mom and baby can evoke many treasured memories for years to come.

Babies grow up fast, in a blink of an eye, memories could have easily become fuzzy. It is precisely why this type of photography are so important.

Tips for those who are keen to engage us for your newborn babies, simply talk to us about what you want and not want. Involve siblings into the family picture, and bring along precious mementos that you want to include during photoshoot.

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

 


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 ;)
