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!

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!

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.

Top 5 Favourite Outdoor Locations for Family and Maternity Photoshoots

Where should we go for our family photoshoots?

Do you recommend shooting outdoors for maternity and/or family photoshoots?

How would the photos turn out?

We decided to put together the images we have captured at our favourite outdoor locations for you to see all of them at a glance! So, just scroll down! :D

1. Singapore Botanic Gardens

There’s so much to explore and different looks to photograph all within one location! The iconic pavillion is a must-have in your family photo! It’s playtime and break-time when we head to the swings, take a seat and let’s catch some evening breeze. Big trees that towers over you, a fascinating sight for your children and of course, running space in the fields! We can even head to the Jacob Ballas children’s garden – you know it’s designed for children when the security stops you when there is no accompanying child in sight to gain entry into the garden.

2. Marina Barrage

The vast blue skies, yes. With all that strong wind we get there, remember to bring along your kites and we can have some fun flying them! Let us take the photos and you can be in the moment with your children. Nothing’s more precious than having shared conversations and shared memories – isn’t that what makes us feel most connected. Not forgetting our beautiful Singapore cityscape that we can capture in the background of our photos too!

3. East Coast Park

It’s the beach! Sun, sea and the breeze :D I’m already feeling all serene looking at this set of maternity images taken at East Coast Park. Get your long flowy maxi dresses, put on a flower crown and let’s go barefoot by the seashore. Have your hubby join in for your maternity photoshoot, take a stroll hand-in-hand, like a date in the park

4. Ann Siang Hill/Club Street

Looking for something that shows more of our Singapore heritage? How about the look of shophouses and those peranakan tiles? There are some lovely stores and brightly coloured walls at Ann Siang Hill that sure doesn’t disappoint and adds the vibrancy to your family photos. You can find variety here – a little bit of a park, traditional storefronts, bright red walls, alleyways for that rustic look, and flowers!

5. Gardens by the Bay/Flower Dome/Gardens By The Bay EAST

Bring your whole family, your cousins and grandparents – let’s have a family photoshoot at Gardens by the Bay East. This is another location we can capture our Singapore city skyline in the background. And if you want to capture the outdoor look and not feel our Singapore heat, we have a solution for you! We can head down to have photos taken in the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay, it is air-conditioned. No sweat, literally.

Saw somewhere that you like? Which of these location is your favourite, or where do your family hang out? Share with us the location you have in mind for your next family photoshoot, and we see how we can make it happen for you. We’re just an email away :) Contact us at info@bambiniphoto.sg,  Whatsapp Us or Find Out More While We’re Away With Our Messenger Bot.


Gather Your Kampung For Family Photoshoot

For all the things our families have done for us, be it big or small gestures, when we were younger or recently – sometimes we can’t thank them enough, even for just being there with us.

That’s what family is, always being there for and with you at the end of any day, and doing it all over again.

When someone asks “How is your family like?”, we can’t answer them at times because all we see are flashes of memories from different parts of our lives which made such a big impact on us that… we become speechless? All of a sudden we’re not sure how to string words together to describe our family, because all the bitterness and all the sweet memories mixed together, is quite  indescribable.

But you know how it feels – how your family is like. Words cant quite describe your family like how you feel.

But photos portray how you feel. Somehow though, photos really do say thousands of words. Cliche, I know! But that’s the truth behind why we become photographers. The amount of love and gratefulness that you feel towards your family, it shows in the photos. From how you treat each other during the shoot, how you smile with each other to your body language when you take photos with each other. And this still shows even though some families do not live together in one household anymore – maybe because they are separated by seas, circumstances or work. But when everyone gathers the whole kampung, you paint a perfect picture. Every individual playing their role that somehow ties the relationship into your unique family.

There’s no better gift and expression of gratitude than making a keepsake of the people who loves you and vice versa, and enjoying the shoot with each other – the core meaning and drive behind a reason to capture memories. Sometimes, this is why photos are a great way to express gratitude and love to the people you cherish, because they get to hold onto a tangible memory too.

So, gather your whole kampung! Bring your cousins from overseas, bring your siblings, bring everyone together once again for a mini gathering, and take memories while at it.

The impulse to save our recorded memories is a powerful testament that tells us much about the importance of photography in our lives, and also the desire to capture our most precious moments into images.

Photographs are a wonderful thing. When we are happy we like to look at them, to remember the joyous occasions. And we do the same thing when we’re feeling down or sad.

We scroll the photos on our social media account and reminisce upon photo albums that have keenly served as as a tangible memoir to help us remember essentially the great past times with people we care about. Also in a lot of cases, to remember the ones who have left us behind.

We couldn’t think of any person who would not like to be photographed. Maybe there are individuals out there, but perhaps their numbers are few to come.

Presenting someone with a photography session that they and their families can enjoy is thoroughly a rewarding thing. We have yet to come across any family who refuses to be photographed, in actuality, most would jump at the chance to have their moments captured. 

It’s always a good time to create memories. Hold on and cherish your time with your loved ones, because time is gonna pass by quick. 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 or Send Us a Message and we promise to get back to you in the nick of time ;)
