Looking For A Photo Studio For 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.
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.
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
