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!

No Graduation Gown? No Problem!

We do have a small collection of academic dress in the studio for clients to use for shoots in case your siblings who had graduated would like to wear them too!

Our Youngest Graduate In Studio

Finishing up kindergarten and going into big school is a milestone in itself. Rachel’s family have been back 3 times to update her young family’s photos. The latest one is a graduation shoot for her eldest daughter just after K2 and before heading into big school Primary 1! Here’s sharing her excitement!

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

    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!

      “Wait……

      What about doing an updated family portrait with more family members instead?

      If…

      Restaurants Can Take Up to 8 Pax….

      How About Photo Studio??”

      According to IMDA, registered photo studios like ours are allowed to

      1) have a ‘production crew’ of 30 pax on set inclusive of the photographer; but

      2) photograph up to 10 pax (talent ie. the family) unmasked in front of the camera (non-interchangeble talent, ie. fixed 10 pax).

      So….

      If you are looking to do a family photoshoot with 10 pax or less,

      then its all good,

      we can proceed with the family photoshoot in our studio.

      Simple Contact Us By Filling Up The Form Below and we shall follow up with a quote


        Yes Yes! We know!

        After serious counting, if the number of extended family members exceeds the 10 pax allowed..

        Erm….How?

        Options….

        1. Shoot in groups of less than 10 in separate photo sessions and we work our magic to put them all in one image;

        2. Write in to IMDA to get an approval to do the shoot;

        3. Email us and ask to be in our mailing list to get notified once we get news of the government relaxes the safety measure rules for our industry.

        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!

        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.
