Why You Need To Do A Kindergarten Graduation Photoshoot?

Yes, you managed to complete your child’s Primary 1 Registration successfully!

That certainly calls for a celebration!

Your baby will be ready to move on to big school with bigger space, lots of classes and many more children. You can’t help but feel proud of what they have learnt and become in the first 6 years of their life.

You would have to agree that graduating from Kindergarten is definitely one of your child’s biggest milestone achieved to date.

Where Have All The Time Gone?

This is when reality sets in!

You realised that your child has grown so so much from the time you remember of them when they were a newborn baby. You feel that parenthood had accelerated time and wondered where all the time had gone…

The only hardcopy photograph that you might have of your child is their newborn photo or passport photo?

You start to wonder if you can freeze time or turn back the clock? Whether you should have tried to get some professional photos done for your child in between those years.

You are not alone!

We have been photographing families for the last 12 years, since 2009 and have heard and seen lots.

This is exactly the reason why we exist.

Is It Time To Celebrate?

Many studies have shown that celebrating milestones help give children a sense of accomplishment and pride.

With the kindergarten graduation ceremonies scaled down in recent times, many families have thought about ways to celebrate safely. Many clients whom we have talked to have actually thought about doing a professional family portrait for years! 

Some have even told us that they can’t procrastinate any longer. They must get a proper family portrait done. What better time than to get the family together to celebrate their child’s graduation milestone with a Kindergarten Graduation Photoshoot while updating the extended family or family portrait at the same time! 

As we all know, we make things happen when we are intentional and most, if not all of the time, we follow through the things that are booked into our calendar. Much so like a family trip or a staycation …

Is it time to celebrate? For sure, it’s always time!

Celebrate milestones, celebrate achievements,  celebrate life, appreciate what we have everyday and start taking action to make meaningful memories for your kids, your family.  Because time passes at an even faster speed once they enter Primary School. You don’t want to have that mum /parent guilt that you should have at least get a professional graduation and family portrait to mark this special milestone.

Can You Celebrate?

You would be pleased to learn that as of 19 August 2021, we are allowed to photograph up to 20 pax unmasked in our studio.

Seize this opportunity and make it happen this time!

    Themed Baby Milestone Photoshoot – Sitter Studio Session

    Themed Baby Milestone Photoshoot – Sitter Session – What Is It?

    We are pretty sure that by now, you have seen lots of professional baby photos in cutesy poses and props. Either you have seen them on your news feeds, calendars, greeting cards, posters, coffee table books or have known of friends of a friend who have had those photos taken before.

    Where Was It All Inspired From?

    The name Anne Geddes might sound foreign to you but I am very sure you would have seen her work or even own one! Anne Geddes was once the Queen of Baby Photography (based on the ArtNet News by Noor Brara on 30 April 2020) and has sold more than 18 million books and 13 million calendars worldwide! Inspired by reading bedtime stories to her young daughters, Anne began to envision fairytale telling through photography which lead to the creation of her first book “Down in the Garden”. It was New York Times Best Seller and this book changed the face of children’s photography globally and launched Anne’s international career as bestselling author.

    I Want One For My Baby Too!

    For first time mums, you’d think that all the baby photos taken are all the same. If THAT baby can fit in a bucket, mine can too! If that baby can curl up and suck their toes, I’m pretty sure mine at 11 months old can too!…… Or is it really? Keep reading to find out why in reality, doesn’t happen anytime, any age.

    First year is the time where baby goes through tremendous growth and development. Apart from physical growth, they are also learning all sorts of new skills during this time from lifting head, rolling over, sitting, standing, crawling, walking, running etc. Babies get to experience all of their FIRSTS during this time…..

    First Cry….

    First Smile….

    First Giggle….

    First Laugh…

    First Crawl….

    First Steps…. or even their

    First Expression when tasting new food.

    Wouldn’t you want to remember those first moments forever? In moments like these with YOUR BABY IN IT — So — what are the different milestones in baby’s first year of life that are worth getting a professional photoshoot done? Let’s do a quick visual recap below.

    Baby’s 1st Year Milestones

    Newborn Photographer

    5-10 Days Old Newborn Baby

    This is the best time to capture early memories of your baby’s life with their fresh wrinkly skin in all their sleepy and snuggly glory when they are still so tiny and in their tight foetal position.

    3 Months/ 100 Days Milestone

    Some traditions and customs celebrates the first 100 days of a baby birth as a sign that baby would live to see their first birthday. Besides celebrating their good health and bestowing sweet smiles on you, your little one may start rolling over laughing and chuckling as well. Baby might protest when placed on her tummy but she needs tummy time on a daily basics for exercising her neck, chest and arm muscles. 

    Baby Milestone Sitter Photoshoot

    Sitters Milestone – 6-9 Months

    Some of baby’s big achievements include sitting up independently, doing ‘sit & reach‘, and attempting to “respond” to peek-a-boos, music and sounds. Baby might even have his/her own opinions now and show you with those cute cheeky expressions. Download Sitter Lookbook.

    baby portrait crawl1

    Crawler Milestone – 9-11 Months

    Your baby might be an all-four crawler, three-legger crawler, commando crawler or could also be a forward/backward ‘bum shifter”!

    If baby hasn’t started crawling, he/she might try to push up on his hands and knees to explore movement. Being curious, baby will also likely be grabbing his/her favourite toys and holding objects.

    One Year Old Birthday

    Reaching the one year old mark is a big deal for both your baby and yourself as this calls for a celebration. This is a major milestone as baby’s personality has begin to blossom and is not shy about expressing their preferences for people and activities. Baby may already be standing and cruising along while holding on furnitures or your hands while trying to take steps. Some babies would have started to walk but not quite know how to ‘brake’ yet.

    outdoor-family-photography-020

    12-18 Mths Toddler – Walk, Run, Hop

    During this time, they are more confident walkers who knows when and how to apply their ‘brakes’, and will then move on to developing their running and hopping skills. Memories of them being happy & carefree at this milestone — Priceless!

    Why Sitter Milestone Session?

    Since 2009, Bambini Photography have been photographing babies and families of all ages and milestones with focus on the family with the baby; instead of baby with the family with the exception of newborns.

    Over time, we have had the privilege of gathering feedback with our clients, peers and our own market research to identify new trends and to push ourselves to go above and beyond to create more for our clients. We listen, we analyse, we innovate with our own flavour and come up with a new series of imagery for your sitter babies. It was always in our mind to create this, and after months of working behind the scenes, we are happy with a new set of images that we are happy to call our own and so proud that we think your kids deserve to have one too. At Bambini, we are always at the forefront of the innovation so our clients have something new to look forward to when they choose to have their images captured again.

    Why Now?

    We get it! Parent’s are overwhelmed in the early days after baby arrives and by the time they remember they want to do a newborn photoshoot, they missed the optimum 2 week window.

    At about 6-9 months, parents have:

    • more or less eased into the baby’s routine,
    • gotten over the initial shock on lifestyle changes from 2 to 3;
    • have perhaps been able to have longer uninterrupted sleep.
    • lost some postpartum weight.
    • got back to working and trying hard to balance work and home life without feeling guilty either way.

    Hence found the courage and motivation to arrange for baby’s photoshoot before the baby grows even more.

    Furthermore, once they discover their next milestone of cruising/walking, they would be more interested in trying and practicing to get to their next milestone instead of sitting down or being on their tummy doing the cobra pose for you. (tell me about baby’s instinctive desire to do better, to improve, to learn! We adults need to keep up!)

    I’m really happy had my baby 6 months shoot with bambini ! The team are very friendly and patient . And the most of time they make me feel they really provide a good service👍🏻 me and hubby like the outcome of the picture and definitely will come back soon for other session! Thank you!

    Top 5 Reasons Why Sitters Are Among Our Favourite Ages To Photograph

    1. They are sitting up confidently unaided or with little help but not walking yet;
    2. They are very interactive at this milestone;
    3. They are full of curious expressions and oh those cute baby rolls too! (Please tell me I’m not the only one who loves the roundness and chubbiness of a 6 months old baby!);
    4. They are excited to practice their newfound skill of sitting up independently thus allowing us to capture their growing personality and adorable faces;
    5. Parents are happy as they don’t have to ‘chase’ the baby around yet:)

    For instance we often get feedbacks from parents that they didnt know baby loves dinosaur so much he wouldn’t let go or that their little girl is so smiley putting on our bonnets they would like to head straight to the mall to get her a hat now!We love doing what we do; to be able to capture all your little bubs first-hand reactions and making them into a lifetime memory. Making it Tangible by Personalising The Memories of Fairytales & Adventures WITH YOUR BABY IN IT!

    When & How To Book?

    Every baby is unique. Some can sit up independently at 6 months, some at 8 months.

    Hence, like newborn photography, you book ahead before your child sit up independently, so we can always adjust the shooting time once they are ready. We often hear mothers saying that they are feeling guilty for missing out on something important for their child. Time passes quickly. Mothers, you tend to be the superwomen at home and need to take care of everything. Without you knowing it, your baby start to crawl and miss this milestone! You simply don’t want to add this to your endless list of guilt that you could have got it done it before.

    Themed Sitter Milestone Sessions are usually done in our studio and can be an add-on to a family photoshoot; or a standalone mini shoot for baby only.

      There are so many great things about Bambini, I hardly know where to start!

      – Jenna Wang

      We had such a great experience with Bambini Photography. First, they’re the most reasonably priced of all the baby photography studios I looked into. There are different packages so you can choose what you want based on what you need, and I never had that sinking feeling of being up sold. – Lydia Clark

      4 Reasons Why Graduation Photoshoot is a Big Deal | Graduation Family Photography

      Finally, Yes, it’s mortar board time… Congratulations!

      Many of you might be thinking of doing a graduation photoshoot, or simply been tasked by your parents to find a studio for this…The brief to you could be… “We need to get your graduation photoshoot done and update the family portrait to put up on the wall…please find a studio that can do that” 

      You scratch your head and think…”Erm.. I’m not sure if I want to do the photoshoot though….

      For those of you who are looking for something more FUN while having some formal setting to please your parents… please read on…

      It is easy to just dismiss the idea for graduation portrait photo shoot. However, Here are 4 reasons why you should totally do it!

      4 Reasons Why Graduation Photoshoot Is A Big Deal

      1. Avoid Parents’ Nagging

      Yes, we know, we have all been there and done that…       But really, doing this kills 3 birds with one stone! The shoot includes your solo graduation portrait, family portrait in both formal and semi-formal setting, and lastly your professional headshot. This is now so important as you need it for that linkedin profile photo and CV to increase your chances of being found and also for securing that meeting.

      2. Celebrate Your Achievements

      We are often pushing ourselves too hard and often forget to celebrate small successes and achievements along the way. Going through the years of education, rushing to meet assignment deadlines, learning teamwork and presentation skills in school is no feat. Remember those late night oil that you’ve been burning during those days? It’s time to celebrate all your hard work! And celebrate it with your family, your rock.

      Our youngest graduate to celebrate her graduation with us is a little girl whom we photographed since she was 3 years old. She came back when she was 6 Years old to celebrate her Kindergarten 2 graduation and family shoot before heading to K3 (ahem sorry… Its Primary 1). Scroll down to see her photos!

      3. Look Great on An Updated Family Portrait at Home

      When was the last time you had your Family Portrait Done? Were you still little in that photo? Are all the family members still there? or there are more addition to the family?

      If the family portrait at home isn’t exactly your favourite, it’s the perfect opportunity now to update your family pictures!

      4. Please Your Parents

      They probably invested lots of their money on your studies, this is the least we can do for them as this is one of the moments parents are extremely proud of their children for achieving this milestone. This is probably one milestone with a wall portrait that will be a conversation piece whenever somebody comes over. Its also a milestone that parents feel they have achieved WITH you.

      Is That It?

      End of studies is not the end of learning and achieving. In life, we learn to train ourselves to celebrate every achievements no matter how small or big, so we can continue to keep achieving. Not for anyone else, but for yourself.
      This is a small formality which we either do it for ourselves, our parents or both… you can make it happen today by just giving us a call at 8717 1558 or email us at info@bambiniphoto.sg or Messenger Us or Whatsapp Us. We promise to get back to you soonest!

      Celebrate Father’s Day – Studio Family Portrait Session 📸

      Father’s Day celebration in 2021 is going to be different, mostly scaled down compared to before.

      Dedicating this post to all fathers out there, 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.

        I’ve done professional photos twice already with Bambini. It’s a great experience every time. And the photos they take are absolutely great quality! They are also very accommodating to my requests, and turn around time was fast. Totally worth every penny I paid. Great job Bambini! Keep it up! – Queenie, Jan 2021

        This is my 3rd time engaging photography services from Bambini and my return visits are proof that they provide really good quality shots and service! My daughter is someone who is slow to warm up to but my assigned photographer, Syafiq managed to make her smile and laugh in the end. Love the photos alot and will definitely consider Bambini again for future family shoots! – Derrick & Crystal, Feb 2021

        School’s Out – What To Do With The Kids This School Holidays

        Are the kids driving you nuts with Home Based Learning (HBL) yet?

        If you’ve ended up here, most likely you need some form of respite from the ‘chaos’ of HBL and researching on what to do during your kid’s school holidays because you’ve ran out of ideas due to the tightening on social gatherings what might have thrown some of your initial plans out the window.

        Holidays can be stressful at times especially when the kids get a little mischievous. But then again, holidays shouldn’t have to be this hard right? Remember just like how our school holidays once were with our parents?

        As parents ourselves, we get that horrible feeling of not being able to spend enough time with our kids during school days just to keep the family going and to put food on the table.

        Demands of our work can be unforgiving that it keeps us glued to our phones and hoping from one zoom meeting to the next; even when our kids are around. And when it’s time for us to take a breather, we spend time scrolling on our phones during the holidays as a form of unwinding and distressing from so much responsibilities at work or school.

        When I look back at a photo of myself when I was a kid, at a swimming pool together with my whole family during a school holiday, I feel the same emotions as when the photo was captured even 10-20 years later. The rush of adrenaline – feeling real lucky to be alive, having spent the time with the people I love.

        Love transcends time, and I think photos are the time machine we’ve always wished we could build.

        But do you find yourself wishing you have more photos during the 2000/2010s era? Our parents took a lot of photos of us when we were kids, but our memory bank slowly reduced during our young adult/teenager phase. What happened to the other holidays and celebrations?

        Are we guilty of taking advantage of the convenience we have from compact cameras and smartphones, just storing the photos somewhere in the iCloud?

        To be honest, I can’t remember much of the memories during the memory bank “gap” period because…
        1. I didn’t “have the time” to take proper photos and print them out to look at and remember
        2. 
        I can’t even remember the photos I took with my phone because of the convenience of the smartphones – we’re always snapping photos, sometimes without much thought put in
        3. Our p
        hotos are then just stored in the iCloud, piled under the new photos we’ve taken, along with screenshots/photos for work etc…

        And learning from this, our suggestion is to always print them out.

        Holidays give us time to explore life together with our loved ones. Even if you spend it chatting over a meal in the kitchen; or playing Monopoly or Jenga; or just driving around Singapore idly, we find strength from our emotional memories & bond that is nurtured through family time, especially for our children. Remember that’s what our parents did for us?

        We can see that in the photos that our parents took so that we can hold onto the memories, and cherish it forever.

        Holidays need not be always extra special, it can even be an everyday activity with plenty more time to spend together with our kids. Plan to intentionally spend time with your kids and family, make every moment count no matter how small the activity is.

        Capture and print the memories… because when they grow older, they have photos to look back and remember us and the times we spent together.

        So Can Photography Studios Still Operate During Phase 2 (Heightened Alert)?

        During Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), we are lucky that we are still able to operate our business albeit a ‘scaled down’ version where we can photograph up to 10pax unmasked until we are notified by the authorities otherwise.

        You know where you can find us if you need help with this… Just hit us up at +65 8717 1558 or drop us an email at  info@bambiniphoto.sg and we’ll help you from there.

        I have always engaged them yearly for family photoshoot. Start from pregnancy till my toddler turn 3. The quality is very good and professional. Always satisfied with their services. – Aini Nurul, May 2021

        This is our second photoshoot with Bambini Photography and the whole process is very smooth. The service is prompt and professional. The photographer really knew how to handle babies on set. Their photo editors fully understood my requirements for each photo, and the end result was very nice. We will definitely engage their services again. – Phuong Pham, April 2021
