Gifts for this season! | Bambini Online Store | Family Photography

Time sure flies! It felt just like yesterday when we were rushing from one photography session to another, a flurry of hectic schedules that seemed to be a routine every end of the year, as families rushed to have their photos as they approach the transition to a new year.

With Christmas being just two months away, you will start seeing the familiar seasonal ornaments and lights being decked up across all malls in Singapore and also the iconic Orchard Road and carols blasted on speakers, as we usher the remaining end of the year in joy and peace, but not before the mad rush of getting everyone’s presents in order.

Make yours ultra special this year and also your loved ones by cutting the hassle of Christmas shopping through gifting something personal and heartfelt as present instead.

In the busyness of life we often found that we have missed on the special occasions and moments with our loved ones. At Bambini we want to encourage you to set aside time as a family on this special season, to reflect or even to just get together and let your special bonds be captured and immortalised.

How to Get Kids to Engage and Smile For Camera | Children and Family Photography Singapore

As parents ourselves, we know that things can get pretty out of hand when children are involved. Nothing ever goes as planned but more often than not, it is exactly that unpredictability that makes the spontaneous moments that we remember for years and make up for the stories that continue to haunt them as we retell them at family gatherings.

Photographing children can be quite daunting for unseasoned photographers. Most children do not like posing for the camera and get easily distracted by their surroundings and that can be difficult for photographers to capture the moment as everything is unraveling way too fast. So out-of-focus and blurry pictures are often common when it comes to photographing kids.

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

Having learned, played and photographed thousands of babies, toddlers, children and teenagers, we can confidently say that we are quite the pro when it comes to children photography.

So today we are going to share with you some insider tips and insights on how to ace it.

Children comes in all shapes, sizes and behaviours. You can consider yourself lucky if you get to work with children who take instructions easily but in most cases it is hardly the case – they are children. And the best thing about children is, they don’t follow the rules.

 

  1. Breaking the ice

Just before we approach any photography session, it’s best to leave it to the parents to gain a better understanding of the kids. Parents will be asked to fill-up questionnaires to help us know about the children.

Yong En says, “The information they give us can really help us break the ice with the kids and family. If we know what they [the kids] enjoy doing, we’ll know how to engage them.”

 

  1. Being patient and observant pay off

Patience is the number one key when dealing with the little ones. We don’t have to coerce kids to do what they don’t want to do. We absolutely advised parents against disciplining their children when things get out of hand during a photoshoot. It should be a fun and rewarding experience for all, so no one should be upset. This is the time where your children can get messy, dynamic and spontaneous for our camera to capture their personality.

Yong En recalls this incident where, “There was a kid who wasn’t keen on having his photos taken, then I saw that his bag is pinned with minecraft badges… so I figured he must like it… I asked him about it and he started opening up. The rest of the shoot in the botanic gardens became me and him out in a minecraft world attacking minecraft monsters. It was really fun!”

It worked and sometimes we need just to pay closer attention to get the children’s.

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)

  1. Playtime is mandatory

“Telling kids to pose and smile don’t always work, so we PLAY, have fun, eat snacks. It helps if they are your children’s favourite”, says Yong En.

We laid out all the toys, balloons, cupcakes, kitchen sets, for the children to go crazy with. It is after all their time to shine so let them do their job and everything will be swell.

 

  1. Being a part-time clown works too

We believe in engaging with the children. Because what’s a photography session without some fun injected to it?

Some of the things we do include, tickling the kids with fake flowers. Making funny fart noises , peek-a-boo, or sneezing just to catch their attention.

Even our singing voices are put to the test at times. “There was a kid who only stops crying when I sang nursery rhymes, and would immediately cry again when the song ends. He was only a few months old and singing really engaged him. I have never sung so much and so long in my life. I felt like I just did a Hi-5 concert. Hahaha…”, adds Yong En.

 

  1. Know your subjects in and out, and if you don’t find out!

Always get to the children’s level, not just eye-level. What we found that works wonder is to keep talking to them, eye-to-eye. Helping them to get comfortable with us, the photographers is crucial, because children tend to be wary and become withdrawn in an unfamiliar environment.

Ask them a bunch of questions, it might take a while for them to answer, but once you hit the right one, they will start opening up and smile for you. And the rest is history. This works highly with children who are on the shy side.

 

  1. Treat everything with spontaneity

There are children who just can’t sit still, no matter what tricks you have up your sleeves. In turn, asking them to stay quiet for a shot can upset them. So making sure we are versatile and flexible is key to getting the perfect shot.

Yong illustrates one typical incident, “ Asking kids who love running up and down to sit still won’t work… maybe for the first few shots… but forcing them can upset the kid, but if they don’t do it, it can upset the parents. So I always go for the rewarding system. I would tell the kids to run but specifically cue them to smile while running, in which gives me the perfect moment to take my shots. So they can be running round and round for me to get my shots, but everyone is happy. And that’s all that matters eventually.”

For kids with siblings, we would usually encourage them to play together and set it so that both personalities are captured, these usually make perfect ‘siblings-moments’ photos.

We feel that should be enough for now to equip you with a better understanding of the behind-the-scenes. Knowing what gear and equipment to use and planning ahead is necessary but it all boils down to the basics, which is, knowing your subjects and to be in tune and intuitive to their needs are what makes good children photographer.

From small things big things grow | Studio Photography Singapore

It’s no secret that we’ve gotten bigger, just as the babies we’ve photographed, we too are growing.

As family photographers we are always on the lookout to inject different and fun backdrops to include in our indoor photoshoot session.

Therefore, we are excited to unveil a new studio that we’ve recently acquired and revamped! It’s no secret that we’ve gotten bigger, just like our growing number of families, we need an equally bigger space to accommodate everyone.

For those who’ve been to our studio at Ubi, our new studio is just a door down from our current one. It can house bigger families, so you can include ah gong, ah ma, your third aunt to tenth aunt for a grand family portrait.

Here is  glimpse of the space that we have. You can do a touch and go from end-to-end. Children now have bigger areas to run around, cycle and just have fun!

We have taken thousands of photos outdoors and indoors and both provide very different vibes to your family photos. We love both outdoor and indoor but just for today, let us talk more about the benefits of photographing indoor with studio equipments.

Perfection at every angle
The weather in Singapore can be quite unpredictable. Sometimes it is sunny before the onset of rain. Your makeup and clothing [especially the children] can get soiled and dirty because of outdoor elements. Sun glares can potentially resulted in distorted light patches in photos.

Classic and artistic
Shoots taken in photography studio are usually more formal with serious undertone than those taken outdoors. For you who would like to opt for an elegant portrait that can be cherished for a long time, studio can be a great option to create a polished photos that will impress those who see them.

Clean lighting or dim lighting? Not a problem
Photography is about “playing” with lights. The ability to control lighting is one skill that most top photographers possess. In the studio, we have full control of lighting to ensure consistency in your photographs. Through the play of lights, we can create different mood that you want to see in your family portrait. Now that’s something!

Going crazy with background
Possibly one of the best thing in any photo studio. You can achieve so much with different backdrops. To bring out your colourful personality, change the backdrop to your vibrant colour. To get a classic and timeless look, you can set the mood with dark and nude backdrop anytime.

Convenience and parking spot guaranteed!
The key to shooting outdoor is communication and to ensuring that location is properly relayed to our customer. One wrong exit and you’d end up going in circles to find the promised meeting point.
Photographing indoor eliminates all that, because venue is fixed and most importantly parking spot is guaranteed. Also it can be very helpful for families with small children and elderly who are physically challenged. You also don’t have to worry about toilets and amenities, because we have all that.

A must for all newborn photoshoot
Shooting indoors for newborn is not something that is set in stone but likely, the best place when it comes to newborn photography. Mothers will have a private space to nurse with access to hot water, diapers, and toilet.


Now we’ve listed it out. The next time you’re in dilemma whether to have your photo session indoor or outdoor, you can read this and make your choice.

Talk to our photographer about what you want to with your photos. Do you want a large canvas prints, artwork paper, conventional photos or just in digital formats? We have done, sealed and delivered them all.

Cake Smash Photography – Why we say YES now?

Why Cake Smash?

Bambini’s success lies in our VISION as well as how we operate… We believe not just in the commercial aspect of our business but more importantly our vision of preserving memories…

Since early 2015 and for about 18 months, we had been asked and asked and asked by our clients to offer Cake Smash and as parents, we have thought about it and we have been saying NO to such request… until 18 months later around September 2016…

There are so many things that we consider before offering a particular service or images… We go to great length in talking to our clients, cake decorator, party supplies people, our own photographers, etc. to ensure we are all in line.

As parents, we were worried about the culture of being wasteful… We are mindful of our carbon footprint, we just want to leave this world full of memories… We asked ourselves, is it okay for us to do that?

Then we decide to give it a go and soon realised that it is nothing more than capturing the curiosity of your baby with the fanciful cake that their parents prepared for them with love… so yes, we are good with that. An avenue to capture the thoughts and love that parents’ put in for their children.

As an artist, we often obsess with the our artwork and we think, it is a disrespect to the cake maker… But after a chat with them, they are more than happy to offer people more happiness through their creation… and they are happy when people can enjoy them…

As a photographer, we believe in memories… once we are good with the above… there isn’t anything that is stopping us to offer what our clients have repeatedly requested…

We are sorry we started a little late… but nonetheless we are inspired to be the best of everything we do…Our team has tirelessly prepared what works the best for our clients and we will have something uniquely ours… Thanks for being there with us…

For those who are thinking of skipping the she-bang birthday party to have a private ‘party’ to celebrate your littleone’s birthday with your own family. This ‘Cake Smash’ photoshoot would be perfect! You have professional family photos together with the decor and cake together in one session. Lastly, the smash or not smash is entirely up to you. Your shoot, your call:) See how we do it! In the end, you get tangible memories to share with your kid.

Drop us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg! Or “CLICK HERE” to drop us a direct message via fb :)
You can also call/Whatsapp us @ 8717 1558 to have more detail.

Went there for family shoot and cake smash for my 1yo. We are very thankful to Illiyin. We were quite late for our shoot. But she greeted us with warm big smile when we arrived. She is definitely very patient with my boy. Professional too. Overall, we enjoyed our session with her totally. One more thing, the cake that was arranged for us was really good too!
