Pregnancy Photography – Safety Tips

You know how sometimes we browse for photo inspiration and goes “Eh, I think I can pose like that too!”

And we start to screenshot the photos happily wanting to follow the exact pose and “feel”.

“Is it achievable?” “I really like it and I want to tell the photographer before the shoot to follow the exact style!”

We thought we’ll share with you some of the questions you have in achieving these dancing shots (a popular request by pregnant mummies).

Is it easy?….

It seems like it is something I can do too?…..

Is it safe? …..

Do I have to be a dancer to achieve this? …..

It can always be edited by photoshop right?…..

We will be sharing all the “tried and tested” Q&A session on the entire experience with you thanks to our experienced photographers and our dancer mummies!

Q: I really like this pose for it looks so elegant, is it safe? Do i have to be a dancer to achieve this?

A: Your safety is always our number 1 priority and yes it helps if you are a dancer because it would mean that you have been practising for a period of time. You will also know your body best, how flexible you are and how much you can “push” for the angles you would like to pose and achieve.

This beautiful mummy in the photo has been practising dancing for over a decade and she shared with us that she is really comfortable twisting and have no problem balancing. She wished to include dancing movements and poses in her photoshoot because dancing has played a huge part in her life. Our photographer, Mag, was the one who was more concern and kept asking if she is doing ok instead!

Q: I am not a dancer and would love to pose like one. Will you be able to help?

A: Our photographers are trained to help ease you into posing comfortably and safely but it is also important for you to understand your body.

For dancing poses it helps if your body is more flexible even if you have no dancing background, for instance you have been practising yoga or pilates, it might help you balance better.

Your body’s center of gravity is constantly changing during pregnancy, you might be less coordinated and may even find it harder to maintain your balance. It is important to share information with your photographer for example you have been practising yoga and pilates and would like to add some poses into the shoot or you have learned chinese dance before and would like to incorporate some of the postures because this will help photographer to better achieve what you want.

This is also why our photographers will always discuss with you prior your photoshoot session to better understand your likes and preferences.

Q: Can you include some dancing poses with me and my husband because it looks cute and fun? Are you able to help us?

A: You can most definitely show our photographers what you really like and they will be able to advise you based on your movements and flexibility. It would be best to also discuss with your husband at home and try out some of the various dancing poses that you like.

Sometimes what we think in our mind does not necessary translate into our actual posing, so this will allow you both to see if you are able to recreate what you like. It is also important to remember to have fun and enjoy the photoshoot session so that when you look back at the photos, it is not only meaningful but in time to come will turn into stories to be shared with your children.

Q: But I really really like that pose and I want to create the same! 

A: Our photographers will always prioritise your safety and give their best in helping you create what you like. With that being said, there are many other factors to take into consideration as well.

To manage your expectations, our photographers will discuss with you and try to recreate similar pose based on safety, your body flexibility, how well you can balance, stretch, just to list a few. 

Q: Do you provide dancing costumes? Or do I have to bring my own outfits?

A: We do provide a variety of outfits to choose from and you can get some outfit inspiration. You are also welcome to bring your own outfits to make the photoshoot session more personalised and intimate.

Impressive service, exceptional photography. We booked a family/maternity shoot for a weekend morning, but when the day arrived, everything seemed to go wrong: my makeup artist was a no-show and my daughter was sick and very cranky as a result. We nearly wanted to postpone the shoot, but decided not to in the end. Our photographer, Fatilyn, and another of the staff, Melissa, were very patient in handling our fussy child and managing the entire session. Still, I wasn’t too optimistic about the outcome, until I saw the photos, which were sent to us the very next day. They are of great quality and we couldn’t have asked for a better set of photos despite the circumstances that day! – Clarice Ting

8 Tips to Dressing Your Bump! | What to Wear for Your Maternity Photoshoot

Doing your Maternity Photoshoots soon or still can’t decide what to wear?

We understand the dilemma of selecting that perfect wardrobe can be daunting.

After thousands of maternity shoots, let us help you! Here are some tips…

Outfit Inspiration for Mummies

1. Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are perfect for maternity shoots as they are very comfortable and flattering. It’s great for showing off your beautiful baby bump, but can also cover up any ‘problem areas’. The dress can be halter neck, 3/4 sleeved, off-shoulders or even sleeveless, take your pick!

2. Body Hugging Clothing

Body hugging clothing looks great to show off those beautiful pregnancy curves. It’s simple and keeps the attention drawn to your tummy and you.

3. Solid Colours

We recommend solid colours as this would help your bump stand out the most. Simple solid color focus the attention on your baby bump.

4. Bare Your Bump

If you’d like to show off your bare bump, we recommend wearing a solid, coloured tube and matching bottom. You can also wear crop tops or a shirt with buttons undone and matching bottoms/denims (non-maternity type) to show off the shape of your bump

5. Texture Texture Texture

You can make your photos look more interesting by wearing clothing with different textures. It’s a great alternative to prints or patterns, and adds more dimension to your photos. You can wear an embroidered top, lace dress or pair your denim jeans with a cotton shirt. Be creative!

6. For More Intimate/Sensual Images

If you’re thinking of doing a more intimate and sensual shoot, we recommend bringing along some nice lingerie or sheer baby doll dresses in soft muted colours.

Sheer, lace robes are also perfect for that soft romantic look. They show off your baby bump but also help hide any unflattering areas.

If you’re thinking of getting your own robes, we recommend the robes from Bell & Birds! You can check out our blogpost to see how we styled these robes during a maternity studio and milk bath shoot. We also have an exclusive discount code for Bambini’s clients, use “Bambini10” to get 10% off all purchases from their online store!

Or go for something edgy, robes like these or even a leather jacket works too!

7. Simply Use What We Have In The Studio

Feeling tired, out of wits, out of time, simply not sure or whatever reasons, no worries!

We have a selection of clothing and materials in our studio too, just let us know beforehand so we can get ready some ideas and prep the fabric drapes, dresses, tubes and bottoms for your maternity photo shoot!

We will style it up for you! Some mummies prefer to go completely bare under the drapes, if not you can bring nude/black/white coloured undies to wear underneath.

8. Modest Wear

Modest wear has been on a rising trend and here’s some ideas how you can match it up for your maternity session with us. We look most beautiful when we feel confident and comfortable with ourselves. With that, the photos will show your pregnancy glow too.

Top 5 Favourite Outdoor Locations for Family and Maternity Photoshoots

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.

Saw somewhere that you like? Which of these location is your favourite, or where do your family hang out?

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

Top Tips for Maternity Photo Shoot | Maternity Photography Singapore

Maternity Portrait Photo Studio

 

As you witness your belly swells, you find your heart swells with so much love with each passing day.

A feeling that is familiar to those who have experienced and are in the moment experiencing motherhood.

Maternity photoshoot became a new concept ever since 1995 when Vanity Fair had Demi Moore looking all glorious with her belly swelling on its cover page. It was an overnight sensation that sparked the talk about a new age of photography, breaking barriers and gave rise to the prominence of maternity photoshoot.

A photographer’s experience in Posing, Lighting, Styling and their Sensitivity towards the changes in your body are things that make an enjoyable maternity photoshoot.

With over 1000 maternity photoshoots, there is no doubt that our photographers at Bambini have a tip or two in capturing the special time of your life.

We have done many different types of maternity images from ‘Land’ to ‘Water’, Studio to Outdoor, – from Classic to Modern, Dark & Moody to Light & Airy, Monotone to Colourful… We are sure you will find something that suits what you have in mind…

And of course, not forgetting our most recent introduction of our Maternity Milk Bath Photography, which you can do a combination of studio ‘Land’ shots with the family; followed by relaxing in nourishing Milk Bath in the tub on the second half of the shoot all done in the studio. Bambini Photography is the only studio in Singapore doing Maternity studio and milkbath in one session. All you need to do is let us know in advanced if you like to add on Milk Bath to your Maternity Photoshoot. Just turn up, relax and leave the rest to us. Take a Peek at a Milk Bath Photoshoot we did in collaboration with Bells and Birds.

One of our Client’s Story:

“We had an awesome maternity cum family photoshoot with Bambini. All queries with regards to shooting day, attires, photos selection, special upgrade packages etc. were addressed promptly and the staffs are also nice & warm.

On the shooting day, our photographer Fatilyn has managed to capture all the precious moments in freeze frames. I can see joy, I can see love, I can see bliss in the pix. She also managed to capture my 2 elder kids’ cheeky moments. Friends have commented that there are so much love in the photos. And the service is really fast, I get to view the 100+ drafts on the same day of the shooting! We even manage to get their goodwill services for additional editing on some of the photos as per our request.

Conclusion: love, love the photos outcome. Price is reasonable too & it feels comfortable doing the maternity shots as the photographer is very professional. Highly recommended to all friends out there & will definitely come back again for our future shoots.” – Felicia
