A Single Branch | Newborn Studio Photography

“The life of a mother is the life of a child: you are two blossoms on a single branch.”
Karen Maezen Miller

It was the children’s cartoon ‘Epic’ that leaves a lasting memory because one of the leavesman mentioned something very profound.

He said, “Many leaves, one tree. We’re all individuals, but we’re still connected. No one’s alone.”

It served as a though-provoking reminder even more so for mothers out there that they are never alone.

No matter what happens, when a woman becomes a mother, she is never truly an individual anymore, in an abstract sense.

Because a mother always carry her child in her heart.

And that’s the beauty of mother hood.

Family Tree | Newborn Studio Photography

This is a continuation from the newborn photography post we published a while ago.

Only this time we have the whole clan spanning four generations in one family shot.

It is heartwarming having witness this family from great-grandmothers to the great grand-child.

It is not often that we are graced by the presence of formidable golden age women in our studio.

“All of us grow up in particular realities- a home, family, a clan, a small town, a neighborhood. Depending upon how we’re brought up, we are either deeply aware of the particular reading of reality into which we are born , or we are peripherally aware of it.” – Chaim Potok

It must be wonderful to grow up in a family with this myriad of characters around.

We’d love to see them again in our studio or even their homes for a another momentous photo session.

Shooting Newborn | Newborn Studio Photography

This is one of the newborn photography session that was done in our studio.
Our photography, Yong En has a penchant for the colour purple and used her favourite fabric to create a different softer look for this baby girl.
We love how she mix the fabric along with the mesh of burlap, the brownish dusty pink woolen cloth, that makes the baby look like and nicely wrapped present.
Playing with the different fabrics gives us ample of room to re-create or create variety in a single image.
It helps that she was calm and sleepy through the whole shoot, making the session an incredibly pleasant one.
She woke up only once in between the set-up to feed.
It is common for newborn to feed more than usual during a newborn photography session, as they moved more than on usual day when they are swaddled and are asleep.
Given the newborn easy and calm nature, Yong En managed to pull off a challenging pose for the newborn where the daddy holds the baby with both hands diagonally,
You can see the picture which is on the fourth column on the right, below.

We definitely can’t wait to see her again in our studio.

Newborn Photography is a Learned Skill, For Most of Us | Newborn Home Photography

Posing a newborn for newborn photography takes requires a lot of hours of practice.

A handful of people may have the natural prowess when it comes to handling baby, they somewhat understand what the baby needs, or when they were about to cry or even laugh. While for many others, handling a baby requires a lot of learning experience, in which they have to study and inject many  hours into understanding and learning the anatomy of a baby, reading books to know what position or poses that babies might prefer, all that- to hone their skills.

Our mentor, Hart is one such person who falls in the minority. He is what we call the “Baby-Whisperer”, he can anticipate when a baby is going to smile, when they need to be fed and always the moment he cradles a newborn, they’d magically stop crying.

Posing newborn requires a great deal of understanding of a baby- what is comfortable and not for the little one. Therefore it was appalling when we see a renowned photo studio who posted a newborn shoot- who simply placed the baby on a prop, his legs not properly tucked in to elevate and give his the greatest comfort and his face shadowed and buried by the fabric that is not properly pillowed.

Photography is one thing, however the greatest priority still lies in making sure the newborn are feeling comfortable throughout the photo session.


Trust | Maternity & Newborn Studio Photography

We always get a little excited when our clients whose maternity photos we shoot emailed us bringing the good news that the little one has been delivered.
Then it is another few days of waiting before we get our hands on the little bundle for the newborn photography session.

Usually, some first-time parents do get jittery and anxious when it comes to letting outsiders hold their babies.
Therefore it is humbling when we witness parents relaxing and letting us handle and capture the images of their newborn because
it shows that they trust us.
Building trust with people can be challenging, and we know that trust is easily broken, so with that in mind, we at Bambini strive
to always be at the top of our game.

It wasn’t easy to get to the point of we are, at the moment. It takes a lot of time and dedication and understanding what exactly the baby needs.
We study and scour books on babies and get advise from people who’ve had years of experience handling newborn.  We learn every day from our mentor, Hart, who
never fails to pinpoint what we could do and what to avoid during newborn shoots, he constantly seek to improve the images that we produced.

So that we can in a small way [we hope] always be a part of a family, creating images that they’ll look back fondly for many years to come.
