Happy Fathers’ Day | Studio, Home & Outdoor Photography

Traditionally, the role of a father in a household is minimal.

In a typical patriarchal society, a father is often taking the role of either the discplinarian and mostly the breadwinner of a family, and almost religiously- a person who is most revered and feared.

Times has since changed and the rule of father has somewhat shifted.

 

We are in an era where fathers are taking a more active role in their children’s lives.

With more and more women increasingly paving a career in the working world, the men are likewise contributing to the time put in doing their domestics and taking care of their children.

 

We are featuring images, some featuring the male that spans generation and others are photos of dads and their children that will make you go jelly just from seeing them.

The bond between a child and their father is a special one.

We’ve always admired the relationships between children and their dads which is built on mutual trust and understanding. Something unspoken yet vividly

 

We’d like to dedicate this day to all fathers out there- old and young alike.

Happy Mothers’ Day! | Studio, Home & Outdoor Photography

“When God Created Mothers”

When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of “overtime” when the angel appeared and said. “You’re doing a lot of fiddling around on this one.”

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)And God said, “Have you read the specs on this order?” She has to be completely washable, but not plastic. Have 180 moveable parts…all replaceable. Run on black coffee and leftovers. Have a lap that disappears when she stands up. A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a disappointed love affair. And six pairs of hands.”

The angel shook her head slowly and said. “Six pairs of hands…. no way.”(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

It’s not the hands that are causing me problems,” God remarked, “it’s the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have.”

That’s on the standard model?” asked the angel. God nodded.

One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks, ‘What are you kids doing in there?’ when she already knows. Another here in the back of her head that sees what she shouldn’t but what she has to know, and of course the ones here in front that can look at a child when he goofs up and say. ‘I understand and I love you’ without so much as uttering a word.”

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)God,” said the angel touching his sleeve gently, “Get some rest tomorrow….”

I can’t,” said God, “I’m so close to creating something so close to myself. Already I have one who heals herself when she is sick…can feed a family of six on one pound of hamburger…and can get a nine year old to stand under a shower.”

The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly. “It’s too soft,” she sighed.

But tough!” said God excitedly. “You can imagine what this mother can do or endure.”

Can it think?”

Not only can it think, but it can reason and compromise,” said the Creator.

Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek.

There’s a leak,” she pronounced. “I told You that You were trying to put too much into this model.”

It’s not a leak,” said the Lord, “It’s a tear.”(www.bambiniphoto.sg)family-photography-studio

What’s it for?”

It’s for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness, and pride.”

You are a genius, ” said the angel.

Somberly, God said, “I didn’t put it there.”

Instilling Positivity in Them | Children Studio Photography

Children are like sponges. They absorb the things they see, hear around them.

Being a parent is not an easy task, there are times when it slipped our mind that the little ones do take into account our behaviour.

We found this article which provide tips on how to encourage positive behaviours on children.

Below are  probably some of the things you’ve read in articles and books but again reading it again could be good to rehash some of the pointers you might have forgotten.

  1. Children do as you do. Your child watches you to get clues on how to behave in the world. You’re her role model, so use your own behaviour to guide her. What you do is often much more important than what you say. If you want your child to say ‘please’, say it yourself. If you don’t want your child to raise her voice, speak quietly and gently yourself.
  2. Show your child how you feel. Tell him honestly how his behaviour affects you. This will help him see his her own feelings in yours, like a mirror. This is called empathy. By the age of three, children can show real empathy. So you might say, ‘I’m getting upset because there is so much noise I can’t talk on the phone’. When you start the sentence with ‘I’, it gives your child the chance to see things from your perspective.
  3. Catch her being ‘good’. This simply means that when your child is behaving in a way you like, you can give her some positive feedback. For example, ‘Wow, you are playing so nicely. I really like the way you are keeping all the blocks on the table’. This works better than waiting for the blocks to come crashing to the floor before you take notice and bark, ‘Hey, stop that’. This positive feedback is sometimes called ‘descriptive praise’. Try to say six positive comments (praise and encouragement) for every negative comment (criticisms and reprimands). The 6-1 ratio keeps things in balance. Remember that if children have a choice only between no attention or negative attention, they will seek out negative attention.
  4. Get down to your child’s level. Kneeling or squatting down next to children is a very powerful tool for communicating positively with them. Getting close allows you to tune in to what they might be feeling or thinking. It also helps them focus on what you are saying or asking for. If you are close to your child and have his attention, there is no need to make him look at you.
  5. ‘I hear you.’ Active listening is another tool for helping young children cope with their emotions. They tend to get frustrated a lot, especially if they can’t express themselves well enough verbally. When you repeat back to them what you think they might be feeling, it helps to relieve some of their tension. It also makes them feel respected and comforted. It can diffuse many potential temper tantrums.
  6. Keep promises.  Stick to agreements. When you follow through on your promises, good or bad, your child learns to trust and respect you. So when you promise to go for a walk after she picks up her toys, make sure you have your walking shoes handy. When you say you will leave the library if she doesn’t stop running around, be prepared to leave straight away. No need to make a fuss about it – the more matter of fact, the better. This helps your child feel more secure, because it creates a consistent and predictable environment. 

You can check out the article in which we’ve hyperlinked above, to read more on them.

Good luck!

Three’s a Charm| Children Outdoor Photography

“We are celebrating our 10-years anniversary,” said the mom and dad.

The couple decided to spend the special occasion by booking a children photography session with us.
We were more than happy to oblige after seeing the three charming little girls emerging from their side.

The oldest, Raeann like most girls are enchanted by Disney Princessess and would chime in excitement when she sees anything that is princess related – that and pink and red tones,  colour codes that is distinctive with fun princesses.

The middle-child Gwenyth has a ‘lifelong’ relationship with her duckie which she lovingly brought with her to the shoot. That aside, she has the penchant to mimic and think that she is a lioness despite the obvious fact that she’s born in the year of the Tiger. She is feisty and she roars too.

The little one, the baby of the family Nicole dons a really cute tendrils for her updo. Imitating those afro puffs like she’s back in the 70s. She is not one to part with the duckie and loves having her two older sister by her side.

The girls may all be different in characters but they do share the same electrifying smile- with dimples so deep and twinkling eyes.

A wise man once said “Blessed be the parents who have three daughters.”

I do not doubt that in the least for I can imagine the endless happiness they bring forth upon their parents.

Three girls are indeed the charm.

The Circle of Life | Family Outdoor Photography

We are once again reunited with Frankie whom we last seen still under two weeks old for the newborn photography session.

This time round the family has chosen an outdoor venue for their family photoshoot. It is a nice change of scenery after having had cooped in the studio for a couple of hours, staring at the screen, perfecting the images of families and happy faces.

We were blessed with a wonderful weather, with the sun radiating its warmth counterbalancing the balmy air in the garden.

To some people, the sun may just be one of the element in the world. It works to signify the day time. It helps to dry wet laundry and well…beachgoers love the sun. To photographers, however, the sun is more than that. The rays serves to act as a lighting mechanism. They served to provide a soft finish and most of the time  gives ‘a dream-like’ coat to photos.

That aside, we are very pleased that the sun seemed to be on our side, capturing  little Lori’s expression perfectly at every angle. He is generous with his smiles and everything seemed to fascinate him, making the shoot a walk in the park indeed.

We really hope to be a part of their journey again- perhaps next time- with a new little addition to the wholesome family.

“A family is a circle of strength and love.
With every birth and every union the circle grows.
Every joy shared adds more love.”
