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 just don’t have the time”….
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.
What about your boss, colleagues, mentors, clients, friends or relatives working very very hard for the their every day?
Perhaps its time to get together to gift them a family photo session to celebrate time and update their family photos with their parents; kids or altogether in a big family photoshoot.

We’re asked this often, “When is the best time for baby’s photoshoot?”
And we would really just like to tell you anytime is a good time for us…
But let’s look at why at 100 days or around the 3rd month, it is one of the best time for some pictures too!
Why 100 Days Baby Photoshoot?
1) Tradition? Perhaps… but this is what we’ve heard… 100 days commemorates the full 1 year from the time you conceive, and it signifies the hope for the baby to live to a 100 years old.
2) It’s the time when your baby is all chub chub and baby rolls are your latest obsession and how you just can’t get enough of those fishball cheeks, so much so you just want to keep kissing them!
3) More Experience in Handling Your Baby
How you’ve experience such a steep learning curve when your newborn just entered into the world and absolutely changed yours, but now at the 3rd or 4th month, you’ve gain better momentum and you’ve become quite the pro at handling your babe… Now you’re ready for some lights, camera and action!
4) You Might Still Be On Maternity Leave
If you’re having a 4months maternity leave, then you’re still be on leave! There’s more flexibility timing-wise, and on our part, we’ll do our best to find the timeslot you like and works well depending on your baby’s schedule.
5) Baby is More Alert & Engaging
At the 3rd/4th month, your baby at this age watches faces intently, recognizes familiar objects and people at a distance, smiles more, turns head towards the direction of sound, and all those tummy time and stretching – we will get those photos of your baby engaging and interacting with you more :)
6) New – Baby Milk Bath Photography In Studio
Last but not least, it’s because we’ve something new in store for your baby of 3 months and it is completely new in town!
And we like to introduce you to baby milk bath photography… What’s even better, you can just come soak and enjoy – like a spa for you and your babe!
More importantly, we use the best milk bath ingredients imported from Japan and it moisturizes your skin and smells really good too.
Is It Safe For 100 Days Young Baby?
You and your baby’s safety and comfort is also our topmost priority, we’ve added an imported bath tub as well as water temperature control system in our studio, so we can get ready the milkbath at the optimum temperature you need.
We also have control of our own air-conditioning, and we can adjust that to your liking.
All these are indoor for your comfort and privacy.
Can We Do Milk Bath Maternity + Baby Shoot (Before & After)?
If you are looking to have the “Before & After” Maternity/Baby Shoot…
Be the first few to have this done…We are the only one who offer private studio milk bath photography in Singapore at the moment.
Intimate moments with your child, bonding as your breastfeed your babe are images we can also capture for you.
Sooooo… When’s the best time? Right now! Buzz us the date and time you have in mind and let’s make it happen for together :D
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!

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
