Baby Photographer

As Baby Photographers we often get asked when is the best time to capture children and babies by our clients? There are so many special milestones during a baby’s first year that choosing can be tough. So we decided to write down our favourite milestone to help you. 
 
  • Newborn
This is such a special moment in your life, stepping into parenthood and becoming a mummy or daddy. When your baby is first born they are usually pretty tiny and love getting swaddled and cuddled. We highly recommend to most new parents or even if this is baby number 2 or 3 or even 4, capturing your littleone within the first few weeks is such a special memory to keep forever. Your baby will only ever be this small and sleepy for such a short period of time and photographing their little toes, fast sleep and you holding them in your arms is truly magical. If you have other children (especially toddlers) and are wanting to capture those special sibling photographs, this is the best time to book in. Some families contact us with baby number two, to book for the newborn shoot and say they ‘regret not doing it for the first’ or ‘I wish we had captured this stage for little…. why didn’t we sign up before’.

  • 3-4 Months – smiley time
 When your baby reaches 3-4 months old they will be developing and learning lots of new tricks. They become stronger and more interactive. At this stage they are really smiley and have learnt to giggle! This is such a happy and lovely age. We love taking photographs of your littleone laying and wriggling on their back.  We also use our lovely (professional) ‘newborn posing beanbag’ to position and take images of your littleone on their tummies, as their neck muscles are now strong enough to support them. They are now able to focus on certain objects and voices so we can get lots of eye contact. The infant still looks very baby like during these months so you can capture some lovely photos with the parents.

  • Sitting up & Crawling

 This is the age when your baby will become more independent and starts learning to explore and move. They are often super proud of themselves for learning this new skill and love showing off. Around this age they often learn to pull themselves up and balance on their feet (usually with a bit of support from an object, or mum and dad). If they have older siblings, the interaction between the children is really lovely.  During this milestone we can capture lots of beautiful candid images of the kids playing and having fun together.

  • Walking
Your baby’s first steps are magical. Capturing their expressions and their pure happiness at learning to walk is a perfect milestone to capture on film forever.  It’s the moment they start heading towards becoming a toddler. For some infants they might already be walking before their first birthday. 
We love to snap beautiful interactive images with parents walking and playing with their littleone or even walking all together holding hands. This can be done in the studio or on location.

  • First birthday (cake smash time!)
 Celebrating the baby’s first birthday is often a very popular milestone for many parents. The baby has grown and changed so much over the past year.  From this tiny little bundle, to a bonny baby full of character and personality. To capture this special moment, two years ago Littleones Photography exclusively launched the super popular Cake Smash Photography Session.  This has proven to be a massive hit with families in Singapore.  The littleones love getting messy and smashing up the cake. These photo shoots are full of fun and laughter for the littleone and their parents. We love to snap some gorgeous family photos during these sessions too.  We love creating different backdrops and themes for our shoots using bunting, and balloons.  This combined with a cute little outfit makes for candid and unique photographs for the parents to love and remember.

Are you looking for that perfect gift to give your loved one this Mother’s Day? We know it’s super difficult to think of new and unique gifts so we thought we would help you with some ideas!

So why not book a photography session for your children or the whole family and let us make some beautiful photographs and record those magical Mummy moments and memories that all Mummies will love!

Photo studio Singapore - Littleones Photography specialising in Family and Children Photography

 

We have put together three unique and super lovely ideas on how to best surprise mummy. And for those Daddies ready this, we are sure this gift will win you some serious points!

 

Photo studio Singapore - Littleones Photography specialising in Family and Children Photography

 

Option 1 – Book a mini photoshoot ($300) in the studio with just the kids (or grandkids) and have the photos ready to surprise mum with on Mother’s Day. Capture precious memories during the 30-minute photo session and place your favourite shot in an 8×6 inch acrylic photo block for her mantelpiece.

 

Option 2 – Alternatively, gather the whole brood for a family photography shoot at the Littleones studio ($475). The gift includes a pampering session at The Big Blow, where mum can get all dolled up with a professional hair and makeup appointment.

 

Option 3 –  To personalise the experience even further, opt for a photography shoot at a location of your choice ($850) – from your own backyard to your favourite place on the island. You’ll take home the best shot on a 12×12 inch canvas and a desktop acrylic block for mum’s bedside table.

Booking your Maternity and Newborn shoot

maternity and newborn Singapore

When you first find out your expecting, you are overjoyed with happiness and excitement. For many ‘soon-to-be’ mama’s they can’t wait for the day when they can start planning and researching their photographer to capture their beautiful maternity journey and the arrival of their littleone. Some mums may have secretly done the research and some may not think about capturing the photographs until very close to their EDD or even once the baby has arrived. 

If you are expecting your first baby, here is some useful advice on when and how to plan for your photo sessions. 

We recommend organising your maternity photo session between week 32-34 of your pregnancy. This is the best time to capture your beautiful baby bump in full bloom. We encourage both ‘soon-to-be’ parents to attend the session along with any older siblings. This gives us the opportunity to capture the whole family together during this special milestone. We love to spend time with the older siblings getting to know them and having fun together, so we can make them feel like ‘The Star’ of the show. This really helps during the newborn session when we need to focus on the new baby, and recording those precious sibling photos! Having a rapport with the older brother or sister is vital.

We offer our maternity sessions at our boutique studio, or on location,  or even at our clients homes. Each option offers a different style and feel to the images.  

 

Here are some samples of studio vs home vs outdoor for you to consider:

The newborn session is usually booked and confirmed following your birth. Ideally we would recommend trying to do the newborn session within the first 14 days while the baby is still very sleepy. However, as mummies ourselves, we know that is not always possible, so there is no rush.  There is no age limit for these newborn sessions, so if you would prefer to wait a few weeks that is no problem for us.

We offer our newborn sessions either in our boutique studio, or in the comfort of our clients home which helps if you practise confinement.

Outdoor Photoshoot Singapore For Family and Children

Family photo shoot on your to-do list?

With the right planning, it needn’t be a chore. There are heaps of stunning locations dotted around Singapore (many of which may be right on your doorstep!) where we the professional photographers can capture your precious chidlren enjoying their freedom with minimal fuss.

 

As a family photographer in Singapore, we offer both location and studio shoots, we’ve been photographing children and families from all over the world for over 15 years.

 

We ensure that each session is well-planned out (sometimes depending on the children’s mood this might go out the window and we have to come up with a new plan), so we can capture the checklist of images in record time with no hanging around in the heat. We aim to keep the children engaged and entertained so it’s a relaxed and fun experience for everyone.

 

So, which locations are the most popular?

Here is the scoop on our favourite spots for families with children of all ages, from newborns and toddlers, to tweens and teens.

 

1. Botanic Gardens, Gardens by the Bay or East Coast Park

“These are popular choices as place where families regularly hang out together – walking, cycling, flying kites or building sandcastles – and they make a perfect backdrop for happy, natural photographs,” says Kate.

2. Shophouses

Whether they’re at Duxton Hill, Arab Street or Emerald Hill, Singapore’s historic buildings are full of character and make a beautiful visual memory of time spent in Southeast Asia. We recently photographed a family of five outside a shophouse in Emerald Hill to celebrate the memory of where the couple first met. Now that’s something to show the grandkids!

 

3. No place like home

Some clients prefer to have their shoot in their garden or condo grounds, so children can be captured running freely. If you’re the lucky tenant of one of Singapore’s iconic black-and-white properties, this is a must!

4. The old railway line

The Green Corridor is another great location. One of our lovelies client cycled along the railway line as a child (and still does!) and chose to have his family photo shoot here to keep this memory going for the next generation.

 

5. Studio

You don’t have to head off to a location for great shots so if you prefer a studio session with air con our homely studio is located on the East Coast. In the studio we are able to record your family photographs on our signature images on the black and white background to create but fun and colourful images and classic black and white photographs. We also have a cute little garden at the studio so if you fancy a few images of the family outside we can pop down at the end of the end!

Whether you’re leaving for your next posting, returning home after many happy years in Singapore, or want a keepsake memory of a place that’s special for your family, book a session with us and capture those memories!
