Newborn Christmas Themed Mini Photoshoots

Let me love you a little more before you’re not little anymore”

You’d love to have keepsakes of your baby.

Only if you’re feeling more ready for a full photoshoot, or if you can commit 3-hours for a newborn session

In Bambini, we truly believe in our mission to capture as many memories for as many families as possible. We know how it feels to be so immersed in loving and caring for your baby, that before you know it, you’re applying your baby for pre-school and then it feels like you’ve missed out on capturing keepsakes during your most loved and treasured memory.

So we’re really so excited to introduce Newborn Christmas Theme Mini Photoshoots! If you’re looking for a shoot with a smaller budget and still want to capture some keepsakes of your Christmas baby, we’d love to offer our services here!

Why Mini Shoots? We want you to be able to remember as many memories, details, facial expressions of your tiny baby. They’re only this small ONCE.

Mini sessions wouldn’t require 3 hours, just up to 45 minutes and you can receive 6 edited softcopies printable to 10R! Wraps, and props are all available in our studio.

If you’re unsure when is a good time, the optimum time is when newborn baby is between 5 – 14 days old. Mini Shoots are available in studio on weekdays from November to December 2019!

To all parents, we’d like to celebrate the sacrifice that you have made for your children, small or big, significant and insignificant.

For your special Christmas baby, we’d love to capture all the love for them in photos.

What’s The Difference Between Newborn & 1-2 Months Baby Photoshoot?

It breaks our hearts to reject clients asking to do Newborn Photoshoots, or when clients are hoping to achieve newborn shots with their baby but they aren’t in the newborn stage anymore. While we can attempt the newborn poses on certain older babies, we are not able to promise and guarantee the results as Bambini’s highest priority is always the safety and welfare of babies and we wouldn’t push them too far and cause them stress.

With years and years of experience with babies, we’ve learnt a lot through the hard way!

With that we’d want our clients to make informed decision at the end of the day, knowing the kind of photos you want and can achieve with your baby – so that you can come to your shoot with clearer expectations to match with what your baby is comfortable with. There is a lot of difference between Newborn & 1-2 months baby. Even if it’s different only by a few weeks, you’d be surprised how much they can grow within that period of time. 

So let’s get to the chase! What’s the difference between Newborn & 1-2 months baby photoshoot?
No option is better than the other, but more of what are the kind of images do you want to achieve together.

1-2 Months Baby Photoshoot is great for capturing babies’ expressions and family connection because they’re more awake and they’re starting to recognise more of their surroundings. Newborn Photoshoot on the other hand focuses more on how small and precious your baby is

Newborn Photoshoots (5 – 14 days old)

1-2 Months Baby Photoshoot

“What Do I Need To Know?”

Every babies are different. However, newborns usually…

  1. are able to hold newborn poses for Newborn Photoshoots between 5 – 14 days of age
    (the optimum time is 5 – 10 days)
  2. prefer to be curled up and wrapped up to feel secure just as how they were like in their mummy’s wombs
  3. go through growth spurts once they reach past 2 weeks old
    (some babies may go through it earlier, some later)
“What Are Growth Spurts?”

Babies past 2 weeks old will experience growth spurts such as…

  1. more likely to stretch out more
    (constricting their movements by wrapping them up in curled up poses may stress them out)
  2. have the tendency to be more awake and more aware of their surroundings
    (certain newborn poses may require babies to be calm or asleep for the safety and comfort of babies)
  3. gets hungrier for milk more often than before 
  4. just like us, they have preferences too, especially when they’re past 2 weeks old – they may prefer not to be in certain lying positions, not to be put down to sleep, to be carried more, breastfed more, swaddled up more (every babies are different though!)

Usually newborn babies are able to curl up better because that is how they’ve been like in their mother’s womb. That’s also comforting to them because it makes them feel as if they’ve yet to leave the womb!

They are also flexible to be in different poses, where else for 1-2 months babies, they’re less flexible, more stronger and more awake to be in poses.

If you love expression shots like we do, then, 1-2 months baby shoot would be great for you! If 1-2 months photoshoot is not what you’re looking for, you can even try 6 months milestone photoshoot!

We usually let babies to dictate what they are comfortable with, and we’ll work with what we have creatively.

We can never truly predict how 1-2 months babies would react and that’s the best part! Their adorable expressions are the best and it’s a great time too if you need some rest after giving birth to capture some memories while you’re still on maternity leave.

“What Should I Do Now?”

Find out the type of photoshoot you like and book early! :) Every photoshoots are unique and special in their own way so even if you miss any milestone photoshoots, capturing keepsakes of your baby is still beautiful and precious.

If you’re thinking of doing a Newborn Photoshoot, it’s best to book while you’re still pregnant so that we can secure a slot for you during the optimum time. We do have times where parents come to book us for newborn shoots when their babies are 3-4 weeks old and we’d refer to them to check out our 1-2 months baby or 3-6 months or 6-11 months shoot.

So you’ll know where to find us! :) We’re happy to answer any of your enquires. Call us or WhatsApp us at +6587171558. You can drop us an email too at info@bambiniphoto.sg too. Can’t wait to capture memories for you soon.


3 Steps to Making Your Kid’s Birthday A Memorable Time! | Children Photography & Cake Smash Photography

Our little one will have their birthday soon! And we’re just cracking our heads on how we can make the celebration a memorable one…

As parents, we start worrying about many aspects, that includes: who to invite, how many people to invite, where to host, the food, the decor, whether our child will be overwhelmed with sheer number of new faces in the party, the safety, the mess, the allergies and the list goes on…

For some of you, you might think, well, why not have something simple yet memorable and put all the attention on the baby and don’t worry about everyone else… and have something to look back to when they grow up….

We have created a simple yet effective – 3 looks in 1 birthday celebration shoot!

This is how we do it at Bambini:

1. Start With Modern Minimalist Images

Before things gets messy, we start with something simple and where it will stand the test of time… Big smiley faces with all the attention on you. A modern minimalist concept with bright and happy simple backdrops :)

2. Get Funky With Special Party Backdrops!

Our children add colours to our lives and we want to show just that – it’s all bright and cheery, no day is a dull day with my little one. We have curated some beautiful backdrops that includes our handmade walls to add more colours in the images. After all, the more the merrier…

3. To Smash Or Not To Smash – It’s Up To You!

And for the finale! Some of you might decide to let loose and let your child have a taste of cake and of course, those that might be allergic to any of those cake ingredient, you can enjoy more with the balloon, and more balloons…

If you are prepared to get down and enjoy life and let them get messy, Cake Smash is another way that you can have your finale.

Let them explore, let them have their first taste of cake, the sensorial exploration and just enjoy life to its fullest!

It’s like a Dream come True as I’ve always wanted to have a complete family photoshoot with our baby and our little bunny. Decided to choose Bambini for our baby’s First B’dae photoshoot and photos are too pretty. Our photographer Melissa was wonderful and professional and she took so many pics of us and our real time interaction. She also managed to make our baby smile and ensure the safety of our bunny. Photos are too lovely and we just needed to purchase all of them. Thanks Melissa & Bambini!

We booked a baby cake smash photography session with Bambini for my child’s one year old birthday celebration. The experience was fantastic. We had lots of fun at the studio and loved the beautiful photos taken by Melissa. Communication was a breeze with the team responding very quickly to emails. Thank you Melissa and Shawna for the wonderful experience. I highly recommend Bambini to anyone looking for professional photography.

5 tips for a great cake-smash photography for your one-year old!

5 Tips For A Great Cake Smash Photoshoot

1. TRY SOME CAKE BEFOREHAND

If your baby is still just starting on solids and haven’t quite added “cakes” to their diet, eating cake for the photoshoot would be a completely new and unfamiliar thing to them!

Try some at home first! Find some colourful spongey goodness and eat it with them :) Smash them even, encourage some play so when they come for their photoshoot, they wouldn’t feel strange towards cakes.

2. BRING THEIR FAVOURITE TOYS/SNACKS

We all need some warm-up time, even adults! (I mean, at my age, I still need some time to warm up to a new environment) so understandably, kids would too.

Bring their favourite toys (that you wouldn’t mind getting a little cake on), their favourite snacks – raisins, biscuits, crackers – we can start nibbling on those to “warm-up” and then proceed on to the lovely cake we would have for the photoshoot once they feel more comfortable :)

3. TOWELS, WIPES & EXTRA CLOTHES! (for yourself too!)

It’s a cake smash… so by that, expect some mess, haha ^^ And in the midst of smashing, your baby might ask to be carried, or at the end of it, while cleaning them up, some cake might get on you too, so bring towels, wet wipes and some extra clothing.

4. BE PATIENT, BE PRESENT – STAY IN THE MOMENT

Depending on your child, some kids need more warm-up time than others, which is fine! Giving them time to warm-up actually helps us capture the best images of them later! We’re not here to rush through, but staying in the moment. Be present and patient and just enjoy watching your child observe and mingle in their environment, trying on new texture – the cake, and of course having fun!

5. GET HANDS ON – SMASH TIME, FUN TIME WITH YOUR CHILD

Children takes after their parents, they learn first by following what you do. You eat cake first, they eat cake too. We encourage parents to join in to have some shots taken together, even with baby’s older sibling. Getting them to feed their younger brother or sister can create such a sweet moment. No fanfare, just quality family time.

Corporate Headshots – Is It Necessary?

Do I really need Corporate Headshots of myself now? Or is it a MUST in this climate?

If you are a big fan of Game Of Thrones, you know the winter is not just coming, it is here and the white walkers are just on the north wall. Oh, it’s the economic winter that we are talking about.

We have seen the 18000 jobs being slashed in Deutsche Bank worldwide, then Barclays, the HSBC and other banks follow suit, and government stats saying that unemployment rate is on the rise. Yes bad news upon bad news and what is coming is everyone’s guess. However, winter is great for those who are ready for them. 

Maybe you’re a fresh graduate and about to step into the working world, not sure what or how you are going to get to that job yet. Have you prepared your photo for your CV to compete with experienced workers?

It is said that a picture tells a thousand words and it is the first impression of you of whether you are given the opportunity for the interview. Do you have your professional headshot for your fighting chance?

Still unsure? We’re here to help!

Have You Been Doing This?

Our experience shows that majority of people haven’t been looking for work in the past 2-3 years, and the last time they have their corporate images taken were from 4-6 years ago.

Have you been using an old photo of yourself? Or maybe been cropping a group photo to just your face? Or have you been using your selfie images?

If you have been doing these, it’s a sign you need to do a corporate headshots for yourself.

There’s nothing wrong with these images on a personal level, but your photos should represent the kind of person you are and still be taken seriously and professionally. Stand out from the rest, a professionally done corporate headshot is a much needed tool in today’s tough job market.

Why Do I Need Corporate Headshots For?

1. Resume

Even if you’re not looking for new jobs, it’s always important to be earlier prepared. You may never know the importance of it till you need it urgently. It’s important to have a professional headshot of you because a photo speaks a thousand words more quickly than what’s written on your resume. It’s the first impression.

2. It’s been requested by your current company

Your company may want to build a brand image with the help of consistent images of the team on the company’s website, brochures, announcements, annual reports or even for company events.

3. Be searchable on LinkedIn

You can decide on the vibe you’d like to give out, professional yet approachable, professional yet casual, fun or however you need it to be! But still being taken seriously with a professional photo, and not a pixelated image from your phone.

4. Networking 

When you’re out for work events or even if you’ve bumped into a stranger who is from a company you’d be open to get to know with, a business card will definitely come in handy! Business cards are great for you to easily be contacted. Nowadays, there’s even digital business cards, so a professional headshot is important to put a face to your contact details. 

5. Personal branding 

If you’ve started your own business, you need to ensure your targeted audience understand your visions as a company through a congruent style that reflects that. This applies to your personal headshots as well!

6. Personal Images for Social Medias

Be it Facebook or Twitter, we need a professional photo taken of us to encapsulate the kind of person we are out there!

This is the time where you need to stand out, a normal passport photo picture of yourself is not going to cut it where there are more people fighting for the job that you are after.

Invest in a few professional headshots of yourself, and simply enjoy the shoot experience while we do the rest. A simple photo can help to even boost your confidence in yourself and the skills you present. Be proud of yourself, you’ve come a long way!

If you think this is what you need to give yourself a push further in the job market or for job security, just drop us an email for more information at info@bambiniphoto.sg or WhatsApp us at +65 8717 1558 and we’ll get back to you the soonest.
