Empty Nest Syndrome?

During a recent gathering of a few friends that we have known since primary school, we naturally talked about life and our parents. A friend of mine then brought up the topic of Empty Nest Syndrome…. Something that I didn’t even know it exist.

We grow quickly under our parents’ care and when it’s time for us to explore the world with or without them, our parents start to feel that they are losing us.

Let’s face it! Parenting is NEVER EASY!

There is no textbook that we can refer to… No Step by Step Manual. We sort of do a bit of trial and error and learn along the way – and hopefully we do the right thing and our kids turn out well. We worry non-stop from the second they are born. We’ve seen and heard a 86-year-old granny worry about her 63-year-old daughter!

Just when you thought the tough part (raising your kids) is over, it can even get tougher now sometimes right? Every stage of parenting is a challenge, never the same. We can only look forward and hope the next phase is easier than before. 

We are so used to our kids needing us when they were younger, and now our babies are all grown and independent.

We try to be their ‘friend’ especially when they hit the tween/teen/young adult stage. Well, at least that’s what most experts would advise parents when the kids are more or less grown up.

But now that your kids are older and they don’t depend on you wholly like they once used to, it’s hard to gather the whole family together because everyone has their own plans. Even when the family gathers, the vision of everyone on their phone versus “real-life” chatting keeps crawling into my mind. How then can we reminisce the bond, the moment, the time we have together without the screen? Especially when these days the information on the internet keeps everyone more busy than before with their eyes glued to the screen. 

Sometimes when you’ve already prepared dinner, your kids called in last minute (if they call) saying that they couldn’t make it because they forgot they’ve got a friend’s birthday dinner. Then you start to wonder – didn’t they plan ahead to have quality time with us as well? Why does it seem like their friends are everything and we’re just in the background?

As parts and parcels of kids growing up, we definitely have been there before. It’s confusing and tough being teens these days, especially at this age where they’re figuring out who they are supposed to be. They might have just started their first adult job, got a boyfriend/girlfriend, or even just still in tertiary school.

The sudden change is kinda tough for us to just simply think past it, but you’re never alone!

Where Did All That Time Go?

It seems like yesterday that they were just a baby…… At times, we feel like we’ve ran out of time with our children. Time flew by so quickly – did we even have enough time when we were all younger?

You’re not overreacting for feeling this way, because all your life, you’ve been their guardian. But we can’t help wondering why the kids feel the same way. Don’t they miss us just as how we miss them?

Sometimes love given, is not love received… One of the ways we know of that help us remember our kids is memories in tangible form eg. photos in an album, photo on the wall, photo on the desk.

You have influence over the things your children remember and your family photos are evidences to remind them of your love. The ones with you in it! ;) Not just the pictures you took of them in your phone. 

Take Out Their Childhood & Family Photos

Sometimes looking at our family photos, images from their childhood are really what makes the difference. Our children are reminded of our love for them, all the hugs and kisses we gave abundantly that they might not enjoy THAT much once they hit the teenager phase…

From our personal experience, after we have gone past the rebellious teenager phase, we feel we want to re-ignite the family spirit as well after looking at the family memory photos and to keep the unit tight after understanding what our parents have done for us throughout the time we were growing up.

Your family portraits not only influence what your children remember from their childhood, but also how they feel about family relationships. Regardless of how busy you are, how little you get to see your kids when you were making ends meet. You made it a point to get the family portrait done.

When they think about you, what first come to their mind? You decide.

And if you’d like to find a family activity to do together, why not be intentional and plan a family photoshoot with us to capture keepsake memories?

WHY FAMILIES DO PROFESSIONAL PHOTOSHOOTS

Display Your Memories

All our life we’ve always wanted to know on our own and let our kids know that they have a happy family that has their back always. And as parents, we wish that our children can live harmoniously in future when they grow up, from their happy childhood together.

Your family portraits are not just to celebrate the present, to show your families and friends at gatherings – they are shaping you and your children’s future. Have them taken, print them out, display them everywhere at home. And your home will be a constant reminder of the joy, love and delight your relationships with one another have been.

No matter how big or small, how diverse, how unconventional, how normal. Display your family portraits at home, in your office, your bathroom, your wallet. Because trust us, it is this little thing that you’d look back time and again that will put a smile on your face when you caught sight of your family on the framed photo or even the one tuck in your purse.

If you would like to plan a session to capture your memories with your family, just drop us an email at info@bambiniphoto.sg or WhatsApp us at +65 8717 1558 and we’ll guide you through from there!

.........The photoshooting experience was wonderful. I was almost in tears when I saw my parents getting close again when posing for the shoots. The laughter and joy filled up the studio. Tks for our photographer Illiyin to make this happened and she handled kids so well. Our boys missed her the moment we left the studio..........

The Best Gift You Can Give | Bambini Photography Gift Vouchers

What Is That Best Gift You Can Give?

Give the gift of time!

If you think about it, we are a time-scarce society…

…”I’m busy”…

…”I just don’t have the time”….

…”Not now…”

are the common phrases we always use in our daily conversations. Before we know it, time has slipped us by…

Your kids have grown up, they are starting to look like little adults and not quite like chubby babies anymore.

Your parents have aged… They are no longer like before…. grey hair overtaking the head, common ailments that comes with age starts to appear fast and furious…

And you cannot rewind time.

But here’s what you can do, you can look at photographs and remember…

Even better, your photographs can tell stories to your children, and your memories become theirs.

“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” – Jim Rohn

More than just good photos we want to offer, but also a good time here with us, with your family.

Your photoshoot doesn’t get you just pictures, but quality time with your family…

You bring home: shared memories, a good experience, beautiful photos and a warm heart :)

In a world addicted to speed, let’s SLOW DOWN.

Enter into the present moment with all of your attention, and time will slow…

Let’s think about it…

When was the last time you had your family photos taken professionally?

Was it at your Wedding?

Your Graduation Family Shoot 5 years ago?

Never Done One Before?

Perhaps its time to start thinking about organising one for your family? Parent’s 60th/70th or 80th Birthday, Other half’s 40th, 50th birthday; Kid’s birthday; or

Drop a super big hint to your other half by gifting them a family photoshoot gift voucher. They simply have to make time to come to utilise it. No more excuses.

A Celebration of Time and Moment | Family Photography

There is a saying that goes, “Children Spell L O V E as T I M E. There may be many reasons as to why you cannot be with your children but none of them can replace the time lost. Once lost, it’s gone forever, you can never recreate the moment again.”

We, at Bambini Photography are fervent believers of time because the nature of our work is such that we are surrounded by it. We are the moments capturers, photo studio who specialise in children and family photography.

Too often we hear parents say, “Can’t believe how fast they’ve grown, it felt just like yesterday when they are this small.”

Time and again we see familiar faces, families who have come to us year after year to have their photos taken with their children. We have in part become their family as we follow their stories, the newborns we once photographed have in turned became toddlers and subsequently young girls and boys.

Top 8 Reasons Why Families Do Professional Family Portraits


Dear Daddies: Just 1 Reason Why… | Family Photography Singapore

Dear daddies,

Have that picture for her…

You know what’s best for your wife… because…

She can’t see how much tenderness and comfort she provides when she holds her child in her arms.

She can’t see the look of affection she has in her eyes when she gaze upon the sweet miracle she has birthed

She can’t see how hardworking and capable she has been when she juggles between all the tasks at home, the babies that need caring for, the work she has in the office

Just 1 reason why… because she can’t see what you see, or what your children see in her.

Have that picture for her… preferably with you in it too…

Some memories will become so far tucked in the back of our minds that we’ll need that one photo to help bring it back,

and remember the time and moment we had

– the one photo that would invite all the other fond memories that accompanies that same time.

When you take a photo, it’s not just a click of a button
It’s legacy for your future generations…

[pp_gallery id=”45615″ style-id=”cd086027-149b-48ba-b46d-cc9ef6e9de9f”] 

If there’s one click you need, we’re a click away.

As mothers’ day is around the corner, we’re here to help you make those memories, to give your grandma, mum and your wife, the perspective they don’t see – to remind them how important they are in you and your children’s lives.

Well-loved and cherished.

Why Photographs matter… | Newborn, Maternity, Family Photography | Bambini Gift Vouchers

www.bambiniphoto.sg

“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.

If you are still in two minds about what to get for your friends, relatives, colleagues, bosses or even your family for this Christmas… there is still time to grab our gift vouchers. (Visit our online store here! Or click on the image below)
