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!

    Booked a maternity shoot. Photographer May really made me and my husband feel at ease and the session enjoyable, even though we are usually awkward in front of camera doing such shoots. Highly recommended and I can’t wait to see how the final photos turn out (the preview looks really good)!

    Nothing but good things to say about this team, which is not always the case when finding creatives to collaborate with on short notice. The presales Whatsapp comms were professional and timely. The photographer made us feel so relaxed and taken care of (even if someone in the group is camera shy). The edits were gorgeous, with a seamless process for print selection. Then to be surprised by a branded photo frame, which accompanied the selected photo, was an absolute delight. Thank you for the cherished snaps and a stress-free experience.

    The whole experience from enquiry to confirming the day of shoot and after service has been seamless and fast! The team is prompt in their email responses and it was easy to book the date for our family 4-gen shoot. The package may seem steep at first (if it’s your first time) but once you gone through the experience of the shoot and the lovely shots you will understand what you are really paying for! Our photographer was hilarious and fun to work with especially with 2 & 6 year old toddlers! He brought genuine smiles and laughter in every shot and it was wonderful to have such a personal private photo studio moment with the family. This meant a lot especially for us and my grandmother who does not have much time left. I highly recommend Bambini Photography for first timers like me!

    Great experience with Bambini Photography! As a returning customer, I find their service consistently of high quality, making my experiences with them entirely pleasant!

My babies warmed up quickly with him as he really knows how to engage with them! He have a knack for capturing genuine smiles and authentic expressions, resulting in photographs that truly reflect the essence of the moment. From the initial engagement with Lydia to the final delivery of prints, she prioritizes clear communication and attention to detail, ensuring a smooth and stress-free experience. She is prompt in replies and also goes the extra mile to provide assistance to my needs prior to the photoshoot. For those seeking a photography studio that delivers quality without the fuss, I'll strongly recommend Bambini photography!

    We chose Bambini Photography for the bright, warm and clean style of their photos. They were very professional and they can help you with minor photoshops if needed. We love how our photos turned out and they make all your other photos taken by a phone look bad 😄 The end product is something that will last for lifetime and we feel it was really worth getting the shoot done by a professional. Thank you Bambini for the wonderful photos! We recommend it :)

    We had our maternity photoshoot done with Bambini Photography today and May was our assigned photographer. It was no easy feat as we also had 3 daughters with us, aged 9 yo, 6 yo and 3 yo but May managed to make them all very happy by capturing cute ballet poses and gymnastics shots for them during the shoot, besides taking a lot of nice shots for the mummy too. I could feel her patience and genuine love for kids and photography and I love how natural the pictures turned out. Thanks to Lydia for being so prompt in answering all my queries too!

    We've done a couple of photo sessions with Bambini and had a great experience. The booking process is easy via email or WhatsApp and Lydia, who manages Customer Care, is responsive and accommodating. We were provided with a range of possible times for shoots and helpful tips, directions, and info. The studio is easy to access with good parking available, nice backdrops and a good selection of props. We loved our photographer Syafiq…a real gem who is super friendly, engaging, and great at what he does! He’s wonderful with little kids and really managed to capture the attention of ours…which isn’t always easy! He made the sessions relaxed and fun for the whole family, from the grandparents to the little ones, and everyone had a good time. Delivery of the photos was quick and Shawna was helpful and obliging in terms of answering questions and sending out our images promptly. We were very impressed with the quality and variety of the images, Bambini really helped us capture so many precious moments that we’ll really treasure and look back on fondly in years to come. Highly recommended!

    Why You Need To Do A Kindergarten Graduation Photoshoot?

    Why You Need To Do A Kindergarten 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.

    Seize this opportunity and make it happen this time!

    Here are the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about kindergarten graduation photoshoot in our studio.

      How To Select a Photo Studio For Your Extended Family Photoshoot? Read These 5 Tips!

      Looking For A Photo Studio For Extended Family Photoshoot?

      Now, someone in your family is coming back to Singapore for a short holiday and this is the only time when every family member is back in Singapore. You’ve been tasked to find a photo studio for extended family photoshoot and make it happen this time round.
       
      You’ve never done this before, so what do you lookout for? Here are the top five things to consider when selecting a photo studio for your extended family photoshoot.
       

      1. Photography Style

      Who is the photoshoot for? Sit down with the family and figure out what kind of photo shoot style that you can all agree with.

      Do you want traditional posed shots, or something more candid? Do you want everyone in traditional clothing? Or do you want a more casual shoot?

      If you have elders in the family, our experience is that they may lean more towards the traditional style of photography. Having said that, our photo studio does have traditional backdrops that enable us to do traditional, formal family portrait, and we can move on to more casual, candid setting in the one session.

      It is still therefore important to get consensus from everyone (especially the elders) on the style of photos you want to make the shoot a success.

      2. Shoot Location

      Singapore is a small island where everywhere you go by car is around 15 to 45 min max. The proximity of the studio to everyone’s home could be something to consider especially if you have small children or elderly relatives with you.

      3. Studio and Outdoor?

      Again, this is something you’ll want to discuss with the whole family. Some studios only offer one or the other, so be sure to ask.

      You would be pleased to know that Bambini Photography can now do both studio and outdoor (with our group’s custom outdoor backdrops) within our air-conditioned studio.

      You have the option of doing a mix of indoor and outdoor in our photo studio for extended family photoshoot without the heat, sweat, insects or rain.

      Save

      4. Studio & Building Accessibility

      If you have any family members who are mobility challenged, make sure to pick a studio that is accessible for them. There’s nothing worse than trying to navigate a flight of stairs with a wheelchair or stroller especially when everyone is all dressed up.

      Some studios have stairs, while others do not. Our studio is located in an accessible building with kerbless pavements, large lift car, and wide corridors for ease of wheelchair/stroller access. Studio is also kerbless with spacious washrooms/changing room.

      5. Parking

      This may seem like a minor detail, but it’s important to consider if you have a large family and/or you’re bringing elderly relatives with you.

      Make sure to pick a studio with plenty of parking for everyone, sheltered drop off area so everyone can get in and out comfortably and easily. Everyone can arrive looking their best.

      Keep these 5 things in mind when selecting a photo studio for your extended family photoshoot, and you’ll be sure to have a great pre-shoot experience.

      We had our family photoshoot on 10/4/22. I am very pleased with the photography session. Although it was a rather last-minute booking, they managed to accommodate us on a Sunday. Our photographer, Mr Shafiq was such a pleasant guy and he was able to capture the attention of my 2 young granddaughters and my son’s three dogs. My grand-daughter had an abrasion and Shafiq even went out of the way to look for a plaster for her. The photos were very well-taken and we were pleased with how they had turned out. Thank you Shafiq and Bambini for the pleasant, stress-free experience. – Mdm Chew, April 2022
