School’s Out – What To Do With The Kids This School Holidays

Are the kids driving you nuts with Home Based Learning (HBL) yet?

If you’ve ended up here, most likely you need some form of respite from the ‘chaos’ of HBL and researching on what to do during your kid’s school holidays because you’ve ran out of ideas due to the tightening on social gatherings what might have thrown some of your initial plans out the window.

Holidays can be stressful at times especially when the kids get a little mischievous. But then again, holidays shouldn’t have to be this hard right? Remember just like how our school holidays once were with our parents?

As parents ourselves, we get that horrible feeling of not being able to spend enough time with our kids during school days just to keep the family going and to put food on the table.

Demands of our work can be unforgiving that it keeps us glued to our phones and hoping from one zoom meeting to the next; even when our kids are around. And when it’s time for us to take a breather, we spend time scrolling on our phones during the holidays as a form of unwinding and distressing from so much responsibilities at work or school.

When I look back at a photo of myself when I was a kid, at a swimming pool together with my whole family during a school holiday, I feel the same emotions as when the photo was captured even 10-20 years later. The rush of adrenaline – feeling real lucky to be alive, having spent the time with the people I love.

Love transcends time, and I think photos are the time machine we’ve always wished we could build.

But do you find yourself wishing you have more photos during the 2000/2010s era? Our parents took a lot of photos of us when we were kids, but our memory bank slowly reduced during our young adult/teenager phase. What happened to the other holidays and celebrations?

Are we guilty of taking advantage of the convenience we have from compact cameras and smartphones, just storing the photos somewhere in the iCloud?

To be honest, I can’t remember much of the memories during the memory bank “gap” period because…
1. I didn’t “have the time” to take proper photos and print them out to look at and remember
2. 
I can’t even remember the photos I took with my phone because of the convenience of the smartphones – we’re always snapping photos, sometimes without much thought put in
3. Our p
hotos are then just stored in the iCloud, piled under the new photos we’ve taken, along with screenshots/photos for work etc…

And learning from this, our suggestion is to always print them out.

Holidays give us time to explore life together with our loved ones. Even if you spend it chatting over a meal in the kitchen; or playing Monopoly or Jenga; or just driving around Singapore idly, we find strength from our emotional memories & bond that is nurtured through family time, especially for our children. Remember that’s what our parents did for us?

We can see that in the photos that our parents took so that we can hold onto the memories, and cherish it forever.

Holidays need not be always extra special, it can even be an everyday activity with plenty more time to spend together with our kids. Plan to intentionally spend time with your kids and family, make every moment count no matter how small the activity is.

Capture and print the memories… because when they grow older, they have photos to look back and remember us and the times we spent together.

So Can Photography Studios Still Operate During Phase 2 (Heightened Alert)?

During Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), we are lucky that we are still able to operate our business albeit a ‘scaled down’ version where we can photograph up to 10pax unmasked until we are notified by the authorities otherwise.

You know where you can find us if you need help with this… Just hit us up at +65 8717 1558 or drop us an email at  info@bambiniphoto.sg and we’ll help you from there.

I have always engaged them yearly for family photoshoot. Start from pregnancy till my toddler turn 3. The quality is very good and professional. Always satisfied with their services. – Aini Nurul, May 2021

This is our second photoshoot with Bambini Photography and the whole process is very smooth. The service is prompt and professional. The photographer really knew how to handle babies on set. Their photo editors fully understood my requirements for each photo, and the end result was very nice. We will definitely engage their services again. – Phuong Pham, April 2021

One-North Park | Family Outdoor Photography

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)Daddy works nearby this park and we had the photoshoot during the weekend, non-office hours! And I must say, it was so nice being in a park and so quiet and serene on a weekend :D And we won’t get people in the background of our photos!
One of the biggest concern we have for outdoor photoshoot is the weather, I mean what do we say to one another almost every other day, especially when we run of out things to say, “The weather is so hot today…” or “It’s been raining everyday!”
haha, yes weather is a big concern, photoshoot or not.

We usually have our photoshoots earlier the day or towards the evening when the sunlight is the best – and feels the best too. And for this photoshoot, we were like checking traffic cameras, texting here and back, looking at the sky… because it was rainy on one side of Singapore, and clearing out the next.

Thankfully, the sun was out and we went ahead with the photoshoot session and the weather stayed brilliant! We also had strong wind, I think I didn’t quite perspire for this photoshoot too… See that blow of wind in the girls’ hair for their individual photos!

haha bad or good weather, we can always work things out! :) Our clients have their photographers’ numbers and we stay in contact to work out any details necessary on the day of the shoot.

Afternoon at the Park | Outdoor Family Photography

We love how the glow of the sun enveloped this family with warmth. Definitely a perfect afternoon for a walk in the park to just relax with the whole family, grandparents included!

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)A visit from grandma and grandpa as baby turns 1, it’s time to celebrate with lots and lots of pictures of this adorable child!

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)With so many expressions (and accessory changes!), the birthday girl was a child photographer’s dream, going between contemplative, sweet and cheeky in seconds!

A Hort, Fun-Filled Afternoon| Family Outdoor Photography

There’s no better way to spend a weekend than enjoying the great outdoors with your family. We got to see Jasmine & Co in their natural element at the Hort Park – a laid-back, fun-loving family with a sense of adventure. We had an absolute blast, and we have pictures to prove it!

The afternoon whizzed by in a mad rush of jumping, playing and exploring, with the children in the lead and the adults trying their best to keep up. Kids really grow up too fast. Make the time to do something you like with people you love. Childhood is made of everyday memories, like family meals, weekends in the park, yearly holidays… A good childhood is the most special and important gift anyone could give (or receive). So go on, go out and make some memories and have an excellent time!

Love in Little India – Part 2 | Family Outdoor Photography

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)White rustic walls! Love all the textured walls you can find in Little India too. It’s really hilarious, seeing how daddy makes baby Judith laugh – and it was probably a work-out for Bryan that day trying to make Judith chuckle for all the photos we wanted to capture. It will always be a challenge photographing kids, but hey, seeing all their smiles and capturing them, makes it all worth while (and I imagine sweating a little helps me ‘keep fit’ too) hahaha

And from what I know, they played with Judith like that – all the more capturing this scene makes it even more special. Kids grow up so fast, we should take more photographs! Yes.
