8 Tips to Dressing Your Bump! | What to Wear for Your Maternity Photoshoot

Doing your Maternity Photoshoots soon or still can’t decide what to wear?

We understand the dilemma of selecting that perfect wardrobe can be daunting.

After thousands of maternity shoots, let us help you! Here are some tips…

Outfit Inspiration for Mummies

1. Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are perfect for maternity shoots as they are very comfortable and flattering. It’s great for showing off your beautiful baby bump, but can also cover up any ‘problem areas’. The dress can be halter neck, 3/4 sleeved, off-shoulders or even sleeveless, take your pick!

2. Body Hugging Clothing

Body hugging clothing looks great to show off those beautiful pregnancy curves. It’s simple and keeps the attention drawn to your tummy and you.

3. Solid Colours

We recommend solid colours as this would help your bump stand out the most. Simple solid color focus the attention on your baby bump.

4. Bare Your Bump

If you’d like to show off your bare bump, we recommend wearing a solid, coloured tube and matching bottom. You can also wear crop tops or a shirt with buttons undone and matching bottoms/denims (non-maternity type) to show off the shape of your bump

5. Texture Texture Texture

You can make your photos look more interesting by wearing clothing with different textures. It’s a great alternative to prints or patterns, and adds more dimension to your photos. You can wear an embroidered top, lace dress or pair your denim jeans with a cotton shirt. Be creative!

6. For More Intimate/Sensual Images

If you’re thinking of doing a more intimate and sensual shoot, we recommend bringing along some nice lingerie or sheer baby doll dresses in soft muted colours.

Sheer, lace robes are also perfect for that soft romantic look. They show off your baby bump but also help hide any unflattering areas.

If you’re thinking of getting your own robes, we recommend the robes from Bell & Birds! You can check out our blogpost to see how we styled these robes during a maternity studio and milk bath shoot. We also have an exclusive discount code for Bambini’s clients, use “Bambini10” to get 10% off all purchases from their online store!

Or go for something edgy, robes like these or even a leather jacket works too!

7. Simply Use What We Have In The Studio

Feeling tired, out of wits, out of time, simply not sure or whatever reasons, no worries!

We have a selection of clothing and materials in our studio too, just let us know beforehand so we can get ready some ideas and prep the fabric drapes, dresses, tubes and bottoms for your maternity photo shoot!

We will style it up for you! Some mummies prefer to go completely bare under the drapes, if not you can bring nude/black/white coloured undies to wear underneath.

8. Modest Wear

Modest wear has been on a rising trend and here’s some ideas how you can match it up for your maternity session with us. We look most beautiful when we feel confident and comfortable with ourselves. With that, the photos will show your pregnancy glow too.

VIEW OUR MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT GALLERY

Impressive service, exceptional photography. We booked a family/maternity shoot for a weekend morning, but when the day arrived, everything seemed to go wrong: my makeup artist was a no-show and my daughter was sick and very cranky as a result. We nearly wanted to postpone the shoot, but decided not to in the end. Our photographer, Fatilyn, and another of the staff, Melissa, were very patient in handling our fussy child and managing the entire session. Still, I wasn’t too optimistic about the outcome, until I saw the photos, which were sent to us the very next day. They are of great quality and we couldn’t have asked for a better set of photos despite the circumstances that day! – Clarice Ting

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?

The Best Gift You Can Give | Bambini Photography Gift Vouchers

What Is That Best Gift You Can Give?

Give the gift of time!

If you think about it, we are a time-scarce society…

…”I’m busy”…

…”I just don’t have the time”….

…”Not now…”

are the common phrases we always use in our daily conversations. Before we know it, time has slipped us by…

Your kids have grown up, they are starting to look like little adults and not quite like chubby babies anymore.

Your parents have aged… They are no longer like before…. grey hair overtaking the head, common ailments that comes with age starts to appear fast and furious…

And you cannot rewind time.

But here’s what you can do, you can look at photographs and remember…

Even better, your photographs can tell stories to your children, and your memories become theirs.

“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” – Jim Rohn

More than just good photos we want to offer, but also a good time here with us, with your family.

Your photoshoot doesn’t get you just pictures, but quality time with your family…

You bring home: shared memories, a good experience, beautiful photos and a warm heart :)

In a world addicted to speed, let’s SLOW DOWN.

Enter into the present moment with all of your attention, and time will slow…

Let’s think about it…

When was the last time you had your family photos taken professionally?

Was it at your Wedding?

Your Graduation Family Shoot 5 years ago?

Never Done One Before?

Perhaps its time to start thinking about organising one for your family? Parent’s 60th/70th or 80th Birthday, Other half’s 40th, 50th birthday; Kid’s birthday; or

Drop a super big hint to your other half by gifting them a family photoshoot gift voucher. They simply have to make time to come to utilise it. No more excuses.

What about your boss, colleagues, mentors, clients, friends or relatives working very very hard for the their every day?

Perhaps its time to get together to gift them a family photo session to celebrate time and update their family photos with their parents; kids or altogether in a big family photoshoot.

Let us make it easy for you to give the gift of time.

Watching Rinihartini’s Family Grow – 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 two. 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 two 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.

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.

If you would like to know more information on the photoshoots we have, drop us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg  or give us a call at +65 8717 1558 to chat with our friendly team :)
