Celebrating Motherhood This Mother’s Day – Family Photography Photoshoot

Mother’s Day Celebration

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. 

Its the time of the year again where in normal times, we 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.

Mothers Day In the Middle of Pandemic

Mother’s Day in May 2020 was very different where all of us were staying home. We suddenly became an expert in online purchases, multi-tasking work, domestic chores & kid’s home schooling all at the same time when everyone is home 24/7.

2021 feels better probably because we are getting more used to the ‘new normal’, and more confident where the population are progressively being vaccinated and more ‘relaxed’ measures have been announced by the government.

What Next?

That said, the situation can still take a turn ….. On the positive note, there will always be light at the other end of the tunnel. We persevere, we do our part, we get through it together and we will all end up on the other side soon enough.

Treasure & honour mummies, grandma’s, great-grandmas for their strength, perseverance, adaptive problem solving skills and unconditional love for the family.

Take this opportunity, gather the mums in your lives to celebrate Mother’s Day…

    Since 2009, we are privileged 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!

    Had a lovely shoot and an even lovelier service afterwards. Received my edited pics today and a big thank you for capturing so many sweet moments. (Even working thru this CB period and I’m sure it is difficult on your end dealing with all the affected shoots). I’m spoiled for choice to pick my fav pic as there are so many nice shots!

    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!

      Cake Smash Or Not? Let’s Find Out

      3 Steps To Making Your Kids Birthday A Memorable One

      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 photo shoot!

      Photoshoot on Birthday

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

      And for the finale! Its your baby photoshoot with birthday cake. As some might wonder if there is a need to smash the cake? Well, the cake smash trend of celebrating baby’s first birthday started in the western world a while back and even made it to the BBC.

      Honestly, we had our reservations on offering baby cake smash photography and it took us some 18 months to say yes to cake smash in Bambini Photography.

      Now, 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!

      Our Cake Smash Photoshoot comes with the cake! We’ll order it for you and you can choose the colours too.

      Still unsure, see the 5 Tips for a great cake smash photoshoot.

      For details, we can discuss over whatsapp and email, let us hear what you have in mind and we’ll work together to make it happen!

      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!

      Elisa

      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.

      Maternity Photography – Then & Now | Bambini Photography Singapore

      Maternity Photography

      How much are you aware of the maternity photography scene in Singapore? If you had been following us yet don’t know much about us, Bambini Photography started our offering photo shoot in 2009 shooting mainly children and family, sharing a studio space with our parent company, Tomato Photo. We then expanded to cover maternity photography and newborn photo shoots. You can read all about Bambini Story here.

      As Steve Jobs says, every overnight success took a long time to achieve. Our success in Maternity Photography seems like an overnight success. However, behind the scenes, we plan, we brainstorm, we test and we have created some of the most highly sought after maternity images in Singapore. Our work is not done yet, as we still have a plans to introduce more maternity images that we call our own. For those of you that love Japanese culture, it is the Kaizen approach and we have adopt this mindset to always create and improve upon what is already in demand.

      There is definitely a story to tell on our maternity images whilst we spend the extra time reflecting and looking back at we have done over the course of 12 years. We never settle with where we are today.

      Who Started Popularising Maternity Photography?

      Since 1995, Vanity Fair had Demi Moore looking all glorious with her belly swelling on its cover page, photographed by the legendary Annie Leibovitz. It was an overnight sensation that sparked the talk about a new age of photography, breaking barriers and gave rise to the prominence of maternity photoshoot. Thereafter, you see celebrities around the world like Miranda Kerr, Natalie Portman, Zhang Ziyi, Angela Baby, Beyonce and many others having their pregnancy photo on the cover of magazines.

      Is It All In The Clothing?

      We had been photographing expectant women for a while now and we often get asked if we actually do fully clothed maternity shots! In fact, many do expect the shoot to show the curves of the baby bump. After all, that curve is the objective of the shoot ain’t it? Well, yes and no.

      Some clients come dressed in their scrubs, sports attire, beautiful dresses; some bring in their sari, wedding veil and even a hamburger as a prop.

      Some, come armed with props such as lipstick, ultrasound, name boards, customised baby clothing/shoes…..to personalise the shoot for pregnancy announcement or revealing if baby will be a boy or a girl. Essentially memories and how the parents are feeling at this point of time.

      They do this not because they merely try to be different but more to personalise their shoot. ⁠They’re simply making memories, perhaps reliving the time when they both met before baby came along; or mum was craving hamburger throughout the pregnancy. Something meaningful to the couple and having stories to tell the kids in time to come.

      A Walk Down Memory Lane With Bambini Photography’s Maternity Images

      With lots of time on our hand during this circuit breaker period, we went through our image archive and seen clients who had taken their maternity photos for their 1st, 2nd and 3rd child; and have since graduated to annual family photo sessions with us.

      The images created then and now; our style of maternity photos had also evolved since 2009. We started off doing mostly dark and moody images in the earlier days and gradually moved onto light and airy romantic shots. Scroll down for more. Images arranged in chronological order.

      We spent the last 11 years creating the various styles of photography and made it into a Maternity Photoshoot Lookbook! We are sure you will find a style(s) that suits what you have in mind….

      You heard it here first. However, don’t take our word for it. Our client’s words are the most representative reflection of our work.

      There are so many great things about Bambini, I hardly know where to start!
      1. They were super prompt in responding to my enquiries and also accommodating to my requests
      2. On the day of the shoot, the photographer was a joy to be with. I am not good with poses and tend to tense up but she always find ways to make me laugh and feel comfortable
      3. The same day that I took the shoot, the night itself I received the photos for review and selection. Talk about efficiency!
      4. No inspiration or outfit? Fine as well, as they have robes and drapes to dress you in!

      I really enjoy my interaction with Bambini, be it in studio, through whatsapp or email communication. Totally worth the price, time and effort spent to do Maternity shoot! Would definitely recommend!! – Jenna Wang (March 2020)

      Christmas Gift Ideas

      Whilst we all have good intentions in gifting, at the back of our head, we often get worried if gifting material stuff might end up being a white elephant; gifting food that end up being stored away and hence constantly cracking heads to think of meaningful gift ideas.

      If the recipient value memories and experiences, or have never had a professional family portrait done before, gifting a family photography experience would help them make time to make memories.

      For recipients who are in the midst of raising their personal profile, gifting a headshot photography experience would be apt too! Options are limitless.

      Learn more about our gift vouchers.

      Thoroughly enjoyed the photoshoot session at Bambini. Our photographer, Mag, was really friendly which made all of us feel very comfortable during the shoot and that was captured in the photographs. My boy had a blast and we would recommend Bambini to our friends.

      Wendy Chua

      Great customer service and also photos turned out very nice. Overall experience is very stress free and photog and admin are all very responsive and accommodating. Will be a returning customer for baby photoshoot

      Jolene Tay

      Our experience with Bambini has been fantastic. In fact this recent shoot is our second photoshoot with them. We booked a slot for baby 6 months onwards+family shoot (family of 4). Although we were slightly late, photographer Mag made us all comfy and she had a way with kids. She was able to capture their attention and is energetic, engaging and fast in responses. We were all having alot of fun and felt happy and relaxed. From the pre-shoot help from lydia to after service from Shawna it was all great. There was good personal touch, mag even texted us to thank us for engaging them. The results and quality of photos were all good (as we all had so much fun and baby and kid was in good form and smiling throughout) and we bought all the soft copies. To top it off they even delivered a surprise complimentary frame n fridge magnet along with the hard copies. Cheers !

        How To Tell Friends About Your Pregnancy? – Pregnancy Announcement Photoshoot

        How To Tell Friends About Your Pregnancy? – Pregnancy Announcement Photoshoot

        You just discovered you are expecting a baby and you are bursting with excitement to share the news with your friends.

        In the ‘olden’ days, you’ll probably be calling and texting all of your good friends and share the news over a meal.

        These days, with everyone is so busy with their life and we have too many things that we want to share with the world, social media is one of the medium that majority of people would break the happy news to their friends.

        You no longer have to wait for the right timing to call your BFF overseas to break the news, they can just find it all out on your social media.

        The trend of pregnancy announcement photoshoots started in the west where the primary intention was make this milestone memorable. After all, there will only be a couple of times in your life where you get to share this piece of news!

        Pregnancy Photoshoot

        Since we started in 2009, we had been photographing expecting women in their 30+ weeks to record their beautiful baby bump. Most, if not all of these women came because of wanting to document their special time in their lives regardless of how big or small they have become. So that they have stories and tangible memories to share with their kids when they grow up. View more maternity portfolio.

        Whilst we photograph thousands of expecting women, we have also heard of many parents-to-be letting us know that they decided not to proceed with a maternity photoshoot because they have gained a lot of weight during the pregnancy and then when the baby arrived, they regretted their decision. They wish they did it, but there is no way we can turn back time.

        For women, that’s very real… we all wish to go through a smooth pregnancy, experience very little to none of the morning sickness, gain weight gradually within the normal healthy range, look glowy and healthy during pregnancy.

        However, every one of us are unique, every pregnancy is different, how our body changes during the pregnancy is also different.

        So rather than missing an important milestone, let’s discuss what you could do instead.

        When To Do A Pregnancy Photoshoot?

        I think we all can agree that memories of our life is the most important thing. That is why, we spend a lot of our resources in finding new food adventure to enrich our life, we travel to seek more adventures to create more memories. However, there are only so much food to eat, travel is non existent until the world is back to normal, so an alternative way of making and capturing memories are important.

        With thousands of clients coming to have their pregnancy shoots done, you know one of the way to preserve those important memories is through photography, the question really is, would you like to have it or rather regret not having it.

        Various parents-to-be would have their take on what they feel is important for their memories.

        Top 3 Stages Of Pregnancy Photography

        1. Pregnancy Announcement @ ~12 weeks
        2. From Bump to 1 Year Old & Beyond
        3. All in One Pregnancy Shoot ~33th Week

        1. Pregnancy Announcement @ ~ 12 Weeks

        Social butterflies or not, this is one of the joyous moments in your lives when you first found out a new life growing in you. Whilst you were trying hard to keep this a secret from your friends, you were also bursting with excitement to tell your friends at the same time.

        Pregnancy announcement photoshoot is usually done around 11th/12th week mark and would suit clients who feel great when the baby bump haven’t quite showed up yet and can still fit into their beautiful ‘before pregnancy clothing’. More so for clients who are focused in making memories tangible.

        For Sanche and Li Meng (their announcement images featured below), who have done maternity session for their first child and then an extended family shoot with us previously. They told us that they were looking to document their pregnancy journey with professionally taken photos. Once to announce their joy having a new addition to the family, another time to perhaps reveal the gender of their 2nd child, followed by the the full maternity photoshoot around the 33th week mark.

        With that in mind, we have recently created a mini pregnancy announcement photoshoot session for couples who are in their 10th week to 16th week mark. A quick 20 minutes studio session for that purpose. Send us an email to learn more!

        2. From Baby Bump to 1 Year Old & Beyond

        We first met Cherubim in June 2019 for her maternity studio and maternity milk bath photoshoot. Thereafter the family continued on the journey of memory preservation during the newborn stage, sitter stage and then recently celebrating one year old birthday of Baby Chaylon with a family and cake smash photoshoot. View the video below to watch their family grow.

        I got attracted to Bambini Photography first because I was attracted to their milk bath maternity photoshoot; it was something really unique and i wanted something special for my precious pregnancy. I was then wow-ed by their great services and attentiveness to details (even to caring how my hair would flow). I then subsequently got the newborn photo session package, and the 6-month sitter package, and more recently the 1-year cake smash Photo session with them. The service standard is consistently great. The photographers were so much fun and patient, and so personalised and explored different variation of poses for the whole family to try. My daughter was like having a play time in their studio. The photos came out awesome as it truly reflects how the dynamics of our family is. This would not have been possible without the fantastic photographers. Highly recommended! And many thanks to the super fun Mag who facilitated and took many wonderful photos of us all in the recent photoshoot. – Cherubim, July 2020

        3. All-In-One Photoshoot @~ 33th week.

        With some mum to be feeling their best around the 2nd trimester and early 3rd trimester. They decide to do the announcment shots, gender reveal and baby bump photos in one session. We taken these type of shots during the maternity session over the years since 2009.  The sky is the limit when it comes to imagination! Scroll down to view more.

        So… what’s your take?

        The above are all important based on how and what you feel about your life, about your baby, about your family. After all, memories (tangible & intangible) only become ALOT MORE VALUABLE and important after time had passed.

        Whilst we collect gazillion types of Intangible memories in our lives and have them registered in one part of our brain, you’ll need to activate your mind to pick out that part of memories later on and talk about it with the children and family. TANGIBLE MEMORIES become somewhat more relatable when you get to see it in your daily lives (e. on the wall, on the desk frame, in an album etc). It becomes easier for your children to relate to when you pull out the proofs when you talk to them about it.

        Bambini Photography have come across many families since 2009 and had the privilege to grow with them since then. The newborns we had photographed have now grown into tweens; the tweens we had photographed had now grown into a young adult chasing their own rainbows. (view their stories HERE).

        Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory. – Dr. Seuss

          I have engaged Bambini for my maternity photoshoot. At 34 weeks pregnant, I must honestly say that my photographer Nicky made me absolutely comfortable throughout ! Great service from the team. I love that they have alot of beautiful outfits and props. Nicky guided me and my husband with all the poses and no minutes were wasted. This is my first pregnancy and I am very happy to have these beautiful photos as memories ❤️

          Fyna

          We had our maternity shoot with YP, and we were very comfortable the whole time. YP was also very patient and accommodating and gave alot of good direction for the photoshoot. The photos came out wonderful and the team and Shawna were very helpful in our editing requests. They were also very kind to throw in some little gifts. Thank you!

          Faustina

          We’ve engaged Bambini for our maternity shoot and absolutely LOVED it.
          Just wanted to say We are so extremely lucky to have Magdalene as our photographer. I was quite nervous for the shoot, 35 weeks pregnant and half nude yet she really made me feel so comfortable in my own skin. She made the shoot really fun and enjoyable. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Magdalene is super friendly & bubbly and approachable – you can trust her to choose outfits for you, and of course: take amazing photos. I’m so glad to have met her and if possible would definitely engage her services again in the near future for any photoshoot that we need.
          We are so happy with everything – from the moment we’ve stepped into the studio – to having the shoot – to receiving all the photos. They turned out so so beautiful. I am VERY impressed with how efficient they are.
          This is my first pregnancy and I am so glad That I have decided to go ahead w bambini – now i have all these beautiful photos as memories. A BIG Thank you to Mag! ❤️
          Will definitely recommend Bambini.
