Themed Baby Milestone Photoshoot – Sitter Studio Session

Themed Baby Milestone Photoshoot – Sitter Session – What Is It?

We are pretty sure that by now, you have seen lots of professional baby photos in cutesy poses and props. Either you have seen them on your news feeds, calendars, greeting cards, posters, coffee table books or have known of friends of a friend who have had those photos taken before.

Where Was It All Inspired From?

The name Anne Geddes might sound foreign to you but I am very sure you would have seen her work or even own one! Anne Geddes was once the Queen of Baby Photography (based on the ArtNet News by Noor Brara on 30 April 2020) and has sold more than 18 million books and 13 million calendars worldwide! Inspired by reading bedtime stories to her young daughters, Anne began to envision fairytale telling through photography which lead to the creation of her first book “Down in the Garden”. It was New York Times Best Seller and this book changed the face of children’s photography globally and launched Anne’s international career as bestselling author.

I Want One For My Baby Too!

For first time mums, you’d think that all the baby photos taken are all the same. If THAT baby can fit in a bucket, mine can too! If that baby can curl up and suck their toes, I’m pretty sure mine at 11 months old can too!…… Or is it really? Keep reading to find out why in reality, doesn’t happen anytime, any age.

First year is the time where baby goes through tremendous growth and development. Apart from physical growth, they are also learning all sorts of new skills during this time from lifting head, rolling over, sitting, standing, crawling, walking, running etc. Babies get to experience all of their FIRSTS during this time…..

First Cry….

First Smile….

First Giggle….

First Laugh…

First Crawl….

First Steps…. or even their

First Expression when tasting new food.

Wouldn’t you want to remember those first moments forever? In moments like these with YOUR BABY IN IT — So — what are the different milestones in baby’s first year of life that are worth getting a professional photoshoot done? Let’s do a quick visual recap below.

Baby’s 1st Year Milestones

Newborn Photographer

5-10 Days Old Newborn Baby

This is the best time to capture early memories of your baby’s life with their fresh wrinkly skin in all their sleepy and snuggly glory when they are still so tiny and in their tight foetal position.

3 Months/ 100 Days Milestone

Some traditions and customs celebrates the first 100 days of a baby birth as a sign that baby would live to see their first birthday. Besides celebrating their good health and bestowing sweet smiles on you, your little one may start rolling over laughing and chuckling as well. Baby might protest when placed on her tummy but she needs tummy time on a daily basics for exercising her neck, chest and arm muscles. 

Baby Milestone Sitter Photoshoot

Sitters Milestone – 6-9 Months

Some of baby’s big achievements include sitting up independently, doing ‘sit & reach‘, and attempting to “respond” to peek-a-boos, music and sounds. Baby might even have his/her own opinions now and show you with those cute cheeky expressions.

Crawler Milestone – 9-11 Months

Your baby might be an all-four crawler, three-legger crawler, commando crawler or could also be a forward/backward ‘bum shifter”!

If baby hasn’t started crawling, he/she might try to push up on his hands and knees to explore movement. Being curious, baby will also likely be grabbing his/her favourite toys and holding objects.

One Year Old Birthday

Reaching the one year old mark is a big deal for both your baby and yourself as this calls for a celebration. This is a major milestone as baby’s personality has begin to blossom and is not shy about expressing their preferences for people and activities. Baby may already be standing and cruising along while holding on furnitures or your hands while trying to take steps. Some babies would have started to walk but not quite know how to ‘brake’ yet.

12-18 Mths Toddler – Walk, Run, Hop

During this time, they are more confident walkers who knows when and how to apply their ‘brakes’, and will then move on to developing their running and hopping skills. Memories of them being happy & carefree at this milestone — Priceless!

Why Sitter Milestone Session?

Since 2009, Bambini Photography have been photographing babies and families of all ages and milestones with focus on the family with the baby; instead of baby with the family with the exception of newborns.

Over time, we have had the privilege of gathering feedback with our clients, peers and our own market research to identify new trends and to push ourselves to go above and beyond to create more for our clients. We listen, we analyse, we innovate with our own flavour and come up with a new series of imagery for your sitter babies. It was always in our mind to create this, and after months of working behind the scenes, we are happy with a new set of images that we are happy to call our own and so proud that we think your kids deserve to have one too. At Bambini, we are always at the forefront of the innovation so our clients have something new to look forward to when they choose to have their images captured again.

Why Now?

We get it! Parent’s are overwhelmed in the early days after baby arrives and by the time they remember they want to do a newborn photoshoot, they missed the optimum 2 week window.

At about 6-8 months, parents have:

  • more or less eased into the baby’s routine,
  • gotten over the initial shock on lifestyle changes from 2 to 3;
  • have perhaps been able to have longer uninterrupted sleep.
  • lost some postpartum weight.
  • got back to working and trying hard to balance work and home life without feeling guilty either way.

Hence found the courage and motivation to arrange for baby’s photoshoot before the baby grows even more.

Furthermore, once they discover their next milestone of cruising/walking, they would be more interested in trying and practicing to get to their next milestone instead of sitting down or being on their tummy doing the cobra pose for you. (tell me about baby’s instinctive desire to do better, to improve, to learn! We adults need to keep up!)

I’m really happy had my baby 6 months shoot with bambini ! The team are very friendly and patient . And the most of time they make me feel they really provide a good service👍🏻 me and hubby like the outcome of the picture and definitely will come back soon for other session! Thank you!

  3. They are full of curious expressions and oh those cute baby rolls too! (Please tell me I’m not the only one who loves the roundness and chubbiness of a 6 months old baby!);
  4. They are excited to practice their newfound skill of sitting up independently thus allowing us to capture their growing personality and adorable faces;
  5. Parents are happy as they don’t have to ‘chase’ the baby around yet:)

We often experience all the awwww’s and woww’s by parents along with their laughters when they are on set with us for they get to also see their babies’ immediate response.

For instance we often get feedbacks from parents that they didnt know baby loves dinosaur so much he wouldn’t let go or that their little girl is so smiley putting on our bonnets they would like to head straight to the mall to get her a hat now!We love doing what we do; to be able to capture all your little bubs first-hand reactions and making them into a lifetime memory. Making it Tangible by Personalising The Memories of Fairytales & Adventures WITH YOUR BABY IN IT!

When & How To Book?

Every baby is unique. Some can sit up independently at 6 months, some at 8 months.

Hence, like newborn photography, you book ahead before your child sit up independently, so we can always adjust the shooting time once they are ready. We often hear mothers saying that they are feeling guilty for missing out on something important for their child. Time passes quickly. Mothers, you tend to be the superwomen at home and need to take care of everything. Without you knowing it, your baby start to crawl and miss this milestone! You simply don’t want to add this to your endless list of guilt that you could have got it done it before.

Themed Sitter Milestone Sessions are usually done in our studio and can be an add-on to a family photoshoot; or a standalone mini shoot for baby only.

There are so many great things about Bambini, I hardly know where to start!

– Jenna Wang

We had such a great experience with Bambini Photography. First, they’re the most reasonably priced of all the baby photography studios I looked into. There are different packages so you can choose what you want based on what you need, and I never had that sinking feeling of being up sold. – Lydia Clark

Not Ready for Newborn Photoshoot? How About a 100 Days Baby Shoot?

Not Ready For Newborn Photoshoot When You Just Had A Baby?

For new parents to be and/or parents of young children, if you feel overwhelmed with the changes in your life after the arrival of your new bundle of joy. Upon your baby’s arrival, Do you….

  1. keep staring at the little eyes, toes, fingers
  2. rush straight to baby when baby makes every sound or cry?
  3. try to figure out what your baby wants, whether baby is too hot/too cold, uncomfortable or if baby had pee or poo’ed;
  4. constantly check to see if the diaper is soiled?
  5. feel you are constantly breastfeeding, expressing milk or keep washing and sterilising the bottles?
  6. remembering which side of the breast baby last fed/expressed;
  7. feel that you are subconsciously worried about baby even while you are asleep?
  8. feel you need to be very efficient when you eat, shower/clean so that you can be ready in time for baby’s next feed; or
  9. feel you have only 10 mins to spend in the supermarket to buy your baby’s necessities or simply to clear your mind while baby is asleep… etc etc

Congratulations! You are not alone and its time to embark on the new phase of your life.

They are only newborns for a month, toddlers for a few years then you see them run around as children for a couple more and before you know it – they hit the teenager phase, then they will be all grown up.

You have seen the sheer amount of newborn photos on social and your friend’s feeds and you like to get that too. HOWEVER, you’re still in confinement and not feeling your best with the sleepless nights, and hope to lose abit of weight first before you’re confident to be in front of the camera.

You’ll prefer to do the shoot abit later when:

  1. you are more settled in,
  2. you are more confident in handling baby,
  3. when baby is more alert, responsive and full of expressions;
  4. when you are still on maternity leave.

All when your baby is still small and capturing their ’tinyness.

So how much later? When then is the next milestone to take baby photos after the newborn phase? When is a good time to photograph babies?

100 days old photoshoot (Classic + Milk Bath) would be a great milestone to preserve before you miss another milestone. WHY?

  1. We heard that some cultures celebrates 100 days as commemorates the full 1 year from the time you conceive and is a very special time preserve memories at this stage.
  2. 3 months is the cuteness overload phase! It’s a milestone that captures their alertness, curiosity, tummy time and their goos and gaa’s. Your baby has started to communicate more with you, respond to the things familiar to them and they are stronger now. A milestone to celebrate for sure!
  3. You can do both tub and ‘land’ shots in one session. We love this series so much because you truly get the best of both worlds, especially if your baby loves their bath time.
  4. You get to capture your baby’s facial responses and expressions! Curiosity, alertness, eye contact, smiles, and even precious cries. 
  5. You are more rested now and have gain better momentum at handling your babe… Now you’re ready for lights, camera and action!
  6. It’s the time when your baby is all chubby and baby rolls are your latest obsession and how you just can’t get enough of those fishball cheeks, so much so you just want to keep kissing them!

While Newborn Photography definitely has that serenity to the photos, 100 Days Baby Photography has so much individuality and charisma to it because of the babies! This series will be more focused on your baby engaging and interacting with you more too.

Our photographer will guide you through the whole process so you know exactly what to do during the shoot. 

Once you have decided that this is it, all you have to do is to bring yourselves and enjoy your precious time as a family. Thats our aim and vision to preserve memories of families. We love families and the joy the babies bring to their family, and we hope we can capture that for you. We also have the tubs prepared in our studio, so just book and have fun!

Baby Milk Bath Photoshoot in Studio – Frequently Asked Questions

Following the successful launch of our Maternity Milk Bath Photography in Studio, many clients have asked if they can do Baby Milk Bath Photoshoot as a continuation to their maternity photoshoot.

That’s right!

YES! We are so excited to embark on the continuation of the milk bath series with babies. All done in our studio with adult sized and baby sized tubs. All ingredients for the milk bath products are made in and imported from Japan.

You know how it goes for the first few months of having baby… restless, tired, constantly worried about the baby and now they are 3-months old and they are happy and smiley when you play with them. For those of you who have finally settled down after the initial blur of the first month or so of your newborn baby, this would be a perfect opportunity to catch up on preserving memories of their milestones.

For the lucky mummies on maternity leave, being intentional to make memories of them at this time is always a rewarding experience. Sink in the tub with them in our adult tub and/or photograph them alone in the baby tub to add to their memory bank.

Alternative To Half-Birthday Photoshoot

Alternatively, baby milk bath photography is definitely a different way of celebrating a half-birthday without cakes! A ‘post bath-coma’ to ease them to nap afterwards never hurts too :p

Just in case you have some questions in mind about this milk bath series, we have answers for you below.

Who Is Suitable?

Baby Milk Bath is an especially special milestone to photograph babies who LOOOOOVEEE their bath time. They are all smiles and giggles when you put them in the tub, and starts kicking and splashing once they are in water. They feel comfortable, calm and playful. They exude so much personality and accomplishments during their favourite activity of the day.

Why Do Baby Milk Bath Photoshoot?

There are a numerous of reasons why mummies ask for and do baby milkbath photoshoots. We have listed them below.

1. They have done Maternity Milk Bath Photoshoot and want a continuation of their milkbath photo shoot journey with their baby.

2. They missed their newborn photoshoot and want to do a catch up shoot before they head back to work within the first 2-3 months.

3. They have seen others do it overseas. Now they are looking to to be one of the first few to do a milk bath photoshoot for their baby here in Singapore.

4. Their babies simply lovvvveeee being in water and enjoys their bath time and they would like to preserve these fleeting moments before they outgrow the baby bath tub.

5. Wants the best of both worlds to do some ‘dry’ classic baby shots and milkbath tub shots in one studio session.

6. Needs a proper family photo while they are still a baby.

Do Mummies Need To Be In The Tub?

If baby is still unable to sit up independently (eg. 2-3 months), we would advise mummy to be in the tub with them as well. This is for baby to feel familiar and comfortable in mummy’s presence.

Is It Safe?

Safety is our number 1 priority in doing photoshoots. We would never get clients to attempt a difficult pose if we feel it is not safe. Bambini Photography works especially well with clients who trust us. If you are unsure and have reservations, then we may not be a good fit for each other for this type of photography. We would suggest that you stick with the classic baby shoots.

Any Props?

We also use flowers or leaves, but if you’d like a plain and simple one, by all means that will be great too. We also have our own rubber duckies that could act as props or can be toys that babies play while capturing the shoot.

What To Bring?

Bring your baby’s favourite small bath toys and normal toys, and you being around to play with and sing to them. Your presence is something comfortable and familiar that will keep them relaxed during the shoot. Oh and do bring towels and clothes for them to change into after the shoot too!

What Should the Baby Wear?

Bring a couple of clothing for them during the ‘dry’ studio session. We do prefer them to be half naked for both dry and water shots. Putting swim diapers on for water shots so we can capture their cute tummy rolls and squishy arms! You could have them wear something simple as well, like an overall. And accessories are great too – a baby bow tie, grandpa hat or headbands (only if baby is usually ok to have head gears on their head).

Is Baby Clothing Provided?

We do have some baby clothing available in studio. However, do bring some along to personalise the shoot for your baby.

What Should Mummy Wear?

For the family shot, do bring wear similar toned coloured clothing with baby and other half. For the milk bath part, mummy can wear similarly to maternity photoshoots. Bring along your nude, white and black undergarments and put on your best smiles. We have robes and fabrics in studio for you to use if needed.
