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 – Bay East
Bring your whole family, your cousins and grandparents – let’s have a family photoshoot at Gardens by the Bay East. It is on the opposite side of the main gardens and entry is via Tanjong Rhu. This is another location we can capture our Singapore city skyline in the background.
5. Gardens by the Bay – Main Gardens or Flower Dome
To get the iconic Supertrees, greenery and MBS in the background, Gardens By The Bay is a good spot.
Furthermore, if 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.

This review is a little late. A big shout out to team Bambini, Great Job!!!
Just did my 9th photoshoot with Bambini. This time the shoot was done by Llliyin. Great session as always with any of their photographer. Llliyin made it a point to connect with my kids, let them laugh and they totally enjoyed the session.
Looking forward to receiving the pics. – Amy Quek
We had a really good experience at Bambini for our big family photoshoot!! The photographer is experience and the follow up experience is very pleasant! We are glad that they made changes to our photos based on our needs. Thank you for making this whole photography session a great one for us! Highly recommend! :) – Hooi Ling
The experience was superb, right from the start when I enquire. Their photoshoot studio is very clean! Great customer care by providing a short questionnaire before the photo shoot to get to know the customer better! Magdalene, Shout out to Lydia and our bubbly photographer Magdalene! Lydia, thanks for your patience to clarify my 101 doubts. Haha! Magdalene, really appreciate the level 99 patience you have with us and especially my son. – Carin Tan
1. Know Why and What You Want
I know, I know… it is isn’t always straight forward to figure out what you want in life.
First thing first… Are you looking at something that is “in” thing today which chances are, will be dated and over in a couple of years? While you want to keep it, on the other hand it is just an eye sore. Think about those shoulder pads… may look good if you are going to an 80’s party, but I am sure, you will probably be saying “it was the fashion trend at that time!” whenever you have a visitor. But of course, some of you love that and there is nothing wrong if you prefer to live today to its fullest and don’t worry about the future.
There is on the other hand, people who love classic minimalistic stuff which will stand the test of time. Think Rolex watch, Mercedes Benz kind of classic styling that still look great today.
Or Perhaps, you are bit of both and say, “Why choose?”
We could brain storm with you on what you love and suggest something that fit in your vision on what you want to achieve for your newborn baby. After all, it is a decision you make like when you had your wedding. Its one in a lifetime thing for your baby and you really don’t want them growing up and say… “ewww”…
Have a chat with us and see how we can bring your vision to life…
2. What Kind of Skills Do You Need Your Photographer to Have?
This may not be obvious and you will only know it when you use the service. Technical know-how is a basic stuff that every photographer should know. An accredited master photographer gives you the assurance that they know their technical stuff.
However, beyond the basic technical ability to conduct a safe and comfortable shoot, is the ability of managing the baby.
A photographer who has managed a lot of babies will be someone that know how to safely manage your baby and offer you the experience.
As parents, your only concern should be, best images done by someone who know the technical stuff and deliver the safest possible way in capturing those special moments in your life.
Talk to our professional team and see how we can help.
3. Choose a newborn photographer can take great shots and knows how to handle the baby well too!
#1 priority would be the safety of your baby. What define a great newborn photographers like ours are the soft skills that manages your baby through out the shoot and these includes:
* being able to understand and read the behaviour of the newborn
* anticipate moments, to predict a newborn’s need,
* soothe wailing babies,
* where to touch in the face to make a tot grin for the camera.
* knowing when enough is enough for the baby
* how to calm anxious first time parents
* knowing that baby is about to poop;
* knowing if the baby had been ‘fully burped’ before continuing;
* knowing when baby needs a feed despite the fixed 2.5-3 hour feeding schedule.
The soft skills our photographers learnt over the years did not come naturally. Each go through ‘excruciating’ yet memorable moments of being urinated on, pooped on, vomited on and from one diapers to another and the experience. All the mentioned soft skills required to be a baby whisperer is earned through hard work and working and photographing different newborns in various circumstances.
It is not through sheer chance that we become one of the leading Singapore Newborn Photographers. When our parent company, Tomato Photo started a decade ago, newborn photography was almost unheard of in Singapore. Most new parents are still sticking to the traditions of confinements, not keen on the idea of going out of the house before the 30-days period- much less having to be photographed. The trends are changing, words got around, people budgeted for newborn photoshoots and newborn photography gained an edge these days, as modern parents realised the importance of capturing memories of their little bundle at their early stages of being born.
4. Newborn photography can be done both at home or in the studio.
Majority of the people think that the only way to achieve professional looking shots is at photographer’s studio.
We understand that people still would like to observe their confinement, hence having professional quality images is about transporting the equipments and props to your home and we love doing that because our vision is simply to help parents capturing and preserving memories.
Of course, sometimes, it is nice to “escape” from home and go to a studio, we have built ours as cosy as home, so you can come and relax while we do all the work for you while you enjoy the the process of the shoot.
So be it in home or studio, the quality is assured with bambini and to figure out which one works best for you, give our team a call and they are able to help you out.
With 3 professional newborn photographers, we always have a spot for you.
5. One newborn photoshoot session can last up to 3 hours.
Each session often last for up to three hours with nursing, nappy changing breaks in between. For mothers who are still recovering from delivery, they can always opt to have a photoshoot to be done at home.
There is no one way to doing newborn photography especially with the myriad of styles available in the market these days. Parents have their own individual preferences to the styles they are after when hiring a newborn photographer. Some prefer a simplistic minimalistic approach for an artistic results, other parents want a natural, lifestyle approach that captures essences of their young family and others love the colours and that the wraps and props do to dress up the shoot.
For us here in Bambini Photography, our vision is to make memories, tell your stories through professional photography for generations to come. In order to achieve the results that you are looking for, we work closely with clients to understand what clients’ expectations and wants are. Although we can do various styles of newborn shoots, we tend to lean towards keeping it simple to create minimalistic look to show more of the baby, their expressions and the connection between baby and the family. All our newborn shoots comes with images in colour and black and white.
Babies grow up fast, in a blink of an eye, memories can easily become fuzzy. It is precisely why this type of photography is so important.
Tips for those who are keen to engage us for your newborn babies, simply talk to us about what you want and not want. Involve siblings in the family picture, and bring along precious momentos that you want to include during photoshoot.
Fatilyn was great! Very professional, quick and good with babies and older kids. We did the newborn (8 days old) plus family photoshoot. The basic edited photos were turned around very quickly and sent to us for selection. We would recommend Bambini to others especially those families who are nervous about how their newborn will be handled and those having trouble organizing their active little kids. Bambini will put you at ease and your photos will be perfect!

It’s not just another day in the studio. While some of us were busy photographing earlier, the doorbell dinged, the new theme set-up we’ve been waiting for has arrived!
After many requests from parents and children we met and photographed, we are happy to announce our latest Pirate-themed photoshoot.
A tale no less familiar to all of us, pirates are always such fun characters to know – with their fiery personas, countless stories of adventures, voyages to seek hidden treasures on their galleon with distinctive Jolly Roger flag.
Children simply love them! And we at Bambini Photography are not immune to it either. How can we not fall in love with courageous swashbucklers who are thirsty for adventures and are masters at navigating the seas?
Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean series have made it all the more irresistible for those who are fans of pirates.
Watch your little one squeal with delight as we pretend to be pirates out on an adventure! – brandishing their choice of swords and fight enemies as they go along – all in a safe environment while being photographed. (Don’t worry, the swords are made of foam and plastic!)
We want to capture your children at their happiest and most natural – that we believe happens when they are most enjoying themselves and having fun! Allowing them to explore and be themselves, that for us, is the greatest achievement.
Plus… it is just fun when one gets to be a pirate for a day!
Simply drop us an email at email@example.com or dial our number at +65 8717 1558 to chat to our friendly crew to know more about our photography service.
P.S. We have another indoor themed photoshoot available. Ask our staff for the rest ;)
“I would part with my wallet, phones and camera but definitely try to negotiate for my memory card”, said a friend, when asked a hypothetical question of what she would do during a tussle with a robber.
Call it bravery or lunacy, we can all agree that the statement above hold some truths. Ask your friends or people about what they when they have to vacate their homes during an emergency, chances are they would take their most prized photographs along with important documents.
The impulse to save our recorded memories is a powerful testament that tells us much about the importance of photography in our lives, and also the desire to capture and immortalise our most precious moments into images.
Photographs are wonderful thing. When we are happy we like to look at them, to remember the joyous occasions. And we do the same thing when we’re feeling down or sad. We scroll the photos on our social media account and reminisce upon photo albums that have keenly served as serve as a tangible memoir to help us remember essentially the great past times with people we care about. Also in a lot of cases, to remember the ones who have left us behind.
We couldn’t think of any person who would not like to be photographed. Maybe there are individuals out there, but perhaps their numbers are few to come.
Presenting someone with a photography session that they and their families can enjoy is thoroughly a rewarding thing. We have yet to come across any family who refuses to be photographed, in actuality, most would jump at the chance to have their moments captured.
