Watch Me Grow – Studio Family Photography Singapore

We consider ourselves lucky. Lucky to be able to witness the love and care in families, and watch them grow from the shoots they’ve had with us through the years.

One of the most common reason why people come to have a professional photoshoot is to celebrate and capture the moment. Celebrate the milestones of a person’s life such as birthday, children, mum, dad, grandparents, years of wedding anniversary, new addition to the family, wedding, having a newborn baby, baby’s milestones or graduations.

For some it starts with their first Maternity Shoot as a couple, then a 6-Months Baby Shoot, then a Family Shoot, and then a Generational Family Shoot. Sometimes, the list goes on because photos are never too much – every major milestone is different. 

Too often we hear parents say, “It feels like it was just yesterday when they were little.” Time passes us by, and before you know it, our babies are all grown.

The best part of having your photos taken every milestone? Is being able to watch your family change and grow over time again and again, and being able to remember the little moments and feelings that came along with it. We may have different reasons to why we are always taking photos, even if it’s of the same people. Being able to capture our journey, allows our history to be something our future kids can be a part of, from just looking at the photos – letting them see and know who we were once like, how we were like. Your memories become theirs.

We saw two beautiful people who are now parents of three. Dear Rinihartini, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey, to capture the precious milestones in your life and see your little family grow bigger. We could not express our awe of the love you have as a family. We hope that one day your children could feel it too from looking at the photos. 

It all began when Rinihartini and Nizam booked their first maternity shoot with us in 2016. Can you believe it? It’s been nearly seven years now. So much has changed. 

And they became three! The couple booked a 2-Months Baby photoshoot with us and would you just look their baby. As much as we love Newborn Photography, there’s something about 1-2 Months Photoshoot that makes it precious in its own way. We love their facial expressions and the special moments when parents are carrying and sniffing their babies. They will never be this tiny again. 

Sometimes, we manage to get similar looking poses of the babies from photoshoots that we’ve taken in different years – like the two images above & below! Two photos that say a thousands of words. 10 months difference… and their baby turned 1-year old for their Cake Smash Photoshoot.

When Rinihartini was expecting her second child, we felt very honoured to be part of her journey to document this moment again. Some might wonder, why do some mummies have a photoshoot for every pregnancy? Doesn’t it look the same? Here are some reasons why mummies take photos of all of their pregnancies:

1) Mummies get to reminisce each pregnancy

Every pregnancy is different. Pregnancy itself is so special. Your first-born – you were excited and thrilled. Not exactly sure what is to come, but ready to take in and learn everything for your baby together, first time as a family.

Second child – you are feeling more prepared and calm for your second pregnancy. But now, you are thrilled to share your excitement with your first-born, seeing him or her responding to having another little brother or sister.

2) Building a significant moment for the elder siblings to remember about having another sibling

Sometimes we can’t remember everything that happened during our childhood when we are older. Celebrating sometimes helps to build a significant moment that could help them remember in the future, of the time when the family was expecting another baby together. 

3) Getting everyone involved in the change and growth

While pregnancy can feel like it’s a solo job for the mummy at times, going out for a breather and spending time with the family can get the kids involved! Rubbing the tummy, kissing the tummy and more. Some elder siblings might get a little fearful of changes too. Spending the time with them to celebrate makes them feel that having a newborn baby coming into the family is fun. It becomes a family activity. 

And the family becomes four! The fun part – a photo of the whole family. Might be tricky :D, but definitely worth the time.

Annnnd the family expanded from 4 to 5! 

Photos are sentimental. These are the things families look back to and remember how far they’ve gone as a family. It may even be a source of motivation to them, the reason why we keep going. 

There is a saying that goes, “Children Spell LOVE as TIME. There may be many reasons as to why you cannot be with your children but none of them can replace the time lost. Once lost, it’s gone forever, you can never recreate the moment again.”

Being able to watch Rinihartini’s family and many families grow, and to provide a tangible memory for families is the greatest reward to us.

Family Photoshoots – Watching Kids Grow

Since we started in 2009, we had been very lucky to witness the love and care in families, and watch them grow from the family photoshoots they’ve had with us through the years.

One of the most common reason why people come to have a professional photoshoot is to celebrate and capture the moment. Celebrate the milestones of a person’s life such as birthday, children, mum, dad, grandparents, years of wedding anniversary, new addition to the family, wedding, having a newborn baby, baby’s milestones or graduations.

For some it starts with their first Maternity Shoot as a couple, then a 6-Months Baby Shoot, then a Family Shoot, and then a Generational Family Shoot. Sometimes, the list goes on because photos are never too much – every major milestone is different. 

Too often we hear parents say, “It feels like it was just yesterday when they were little.” Time passes us by, and before you know it, our babies are all grown.

The best part of having your photos taken every milestone?

We may have different reasons to why we are always taking photos, even if it’s of the same people.

Chronicles of the Reijngoudt Family

We first met the Reijngoudt family of 7 at Singapore Botanic Gardens in 2012. The youngest boy was 16 months at that time.

The following year, they were back for another family session, this time at West Coast Park.

In 2015, they came back to capture the memories of the kids, this time in our studio. The growth we saw in these kids were phenomenal. We can’t help but keep staring at the photos of them and thinking to ourselves how much they’ve grown since our last session. It seemed like yesterday!

In 2018, we got a note from mum saying this time round, we have a new member, one of the boy’s girlfriend will also be joining in the photoshoot too!

Photos are sentimental. These are the things families look back to and remember how far they’ve gone as a family. It may even be a source of motivation to them, the reason why we keep going. 

There is a saying that goes, “Children Spell LOVE as TIME. There may be many reasons as to why you cannot be with your children but none of them can replace the time lost. Once lost, it’s gone forever, you can never recreate the moment again.” The older kids from the Reijngoudt family are already in their late teens, early 20’s now. Perhaps away from home for their studies.

Being able to watch Reijngoudt family and many families grow, and to provide a tangible memory for families is the greatest reward to us.

    Top 3 Reasons Why Printing Photos Are So Important

    Remember the feeling you got the first time you took a photo? When you wanted to capture and seize that moment so that it could last for a lifetime? It’s that warm fuzzy feeling when we get to have a memento of the people we love.

    Printing Photos – In the Past

    Back in the days when we couldn’t view the images immediately, we had to wait patiently until we use up all the 24 or 36 frames in the roll of film before we can send it in to the lab for processing and printing before we can even see the finished photos.

    We would compile all of the prints in those albums that came together for free with the prints. The more artistic ones will take the trouble to put them in nicer looking albums instead of the ones that the lab give to us free :D The even more artistic ones will take more time to turn the prints into a photo album or scrapbook by adding some text or story in the album – where it was taken, when it was taken and what was the occasion…

    The best part about that is it becomes a tangible memory for us. It is one of the main reasons why we became photographers ourselves. Being able to witness a family make time to come together for a photoshoot, gets us emotional inside and we just want it to be able to last forever for them.

    Printing Photos – Now

    We all know the drill. We take a ton of pictures on our phones, and they just sit there. Or, we post them on social media but never really do anything with them. And then, when we want to look back at them, we can’t even find them!

    Even though photos are more easily taken these days with smartphones, we don’t seem print photos as much as we used to. We do post them on social media to update friends and families what we’ve been up to lately, by sharing what we have eaten to sharing beautiful moments with the family. Aside from that, it is also partly to “archives” the photos in social media platforms as a back up just in case the computer crash or we lose our phone. The only back up left is the preview resolution of those stored in social media. Social media is known to be notorious in compressing the image so they save some space by allowing you to use the platform for free. When you need it, and when it is time to print, the compressed resolution images looks good from far… but it is far from good once you see it up close!

    It’s always easy to convince ourselves that we will print the photos soon, someday soon… but there is never really a good time. We are pretty occupied with our daily tasks, caring for our own kids, running the household, juggling work, and caring for parents. Sorting photos and printing photos from the gazillion number of images stored in our phones is time-consuming and we tend to procrastinate on this task. We just had several clients who only keep “digital copies” on their computers and ask if we still keep them after many years as they have lost their images due to computer crashes.

    Memories are like money, there is no purpose of it until you need it. Like when someone has passed on, or when our kids need a shot of our family for school the following week, or you need those pictures for a birthday announcement coming up. It is easy to not do anything now… only to find yourself in dire situations when you need it.

    So here are our top 3 reasons why we feel printing photos are important:

    1. It becomes a tangible memory

    A printed photo becomes something our future kids can touch and look closely into. It’s displayed, its on the wall, its on the desk, its inside the album. You don’t need to search through the various files, folders and deep archives to find the images that you took years ago in the computer. Its there! Printed and hung on the wall or compiled in an album.

    Just like when our parents showed us their old photos, it creates conversations about how our families were like when they were younger – how they used to climb on coconut trees or went for a swim in a longkang. Who would have thought our fierce aunties were that playful!

    Mini details like these, helps to paint a picture of how our loved ones were once like and bring us closer to them. It’s very heartwarming to see our kids taking out the family albums or even those kindergarten graduation photos and making jokes about how small their siblings were or commenting that they still remember our relative who has passed away.

    Plus, printed photos are more accessible for our non-tech savvy parents and our very young kids who we want to limit their screen time to the ‘wonders’ of phones and computers. They wouldn’t need to reach out to the phone or computer to find the files, its just there everyday.

    Worst case scenario when you need them in a digital copy, have them converted.

    Enjoy your photos every day you when you walk past where the images are being displayed.

    2. It ties people to places, experiences and emotions

    When we look at the image taken the first time, we might notice things like how we used to look. But as time passes, what we get to see are the moments, the emotions, and the experiences that we had with people that was with us.

    The first few seconds from just looking at a photo immediately brings us back to our old homes, our old playgrounds, our old treasured memory. Sometimes when we pause for a little while and just take a look around us, we get to see how far our families have come and remember how we first started out. It ties us back to our roots and our purposes in life. Small things that we see on a photo, like that blanket we used to hug to sleep, reminds us of even the atmosphere, feelings, and scents of that particular time in our lives.

    Our world is so fast-moving and there isn’t time to look for the images in our phones or our laptops; have it there ready every time and its great to just stop and re-live those moments…

    3. It strengthens us

    Lately with the fast-paced life, we get too pre-occupied with our work and we lose sight of our purposes in life and why we do what we do. Sometimes when days are low, we forget about how fortunate we still are to be where we are now. Some people place photo frames on their work-desks, some along the walls of their house, just to remind them of who we are and the people who have made the person we are today… and that even when we have bad days, we will always have our family behind us and in our hearts to push us through in life.

    Our vision in Bambini as photographers is always to help families preserve their memories.

    Memories is an essential part of us.
    Memories brings people closer together.
    Memories grows the love stronger.

    We will always strive for that no matter how fast the digital world is changing. That is the reason why we at Bambini Photography always include printed photo in all of our packages even if it is just 1!

    If you need ideas on how to turn your soft copies to tangible photos, do let us know and we can work with you to come up with something.

    Or are you thinking of buying a personal and lasting gift for your loved ones to remind him/her of the milestone in their life? We have gift vouchers available that can be personalised to include your personal message and the recipient’s name.

    Top 8 Reasons Why Family Do Professional Family Portraits


    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…

        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….

        With over 1000 maternity photoshoots since 2009, there is no doubt that our photographers at Bambini have a tip or two in capturing the special time of your life.

        A photographer’s experience in Posing, Lighting, Styling and their Sensitivity towards the changes in your body are things that make an enjoyable maternity photoshoot.

        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)
