Kids grow up so fast, right? There’s no better way to capture the memories than by having a family photoshoot. With the little ones in tow, choose a photography studio that specialises in taking family photos, as they’ll be able to keep the kids entertained and happy during the process, without letting a tantrum spoil the day! Here are three great photography studios in Singapore where you will find family photographers who will capture perfect portraits of your loved ones.
At Littleones Photography, sister team Kate and Emily work their magic behind the camera in a studio equipped with all the comforts to keep the kids (and adults) relaxed and happy. Mum and dad can help themselves to a Nespresso, while the youngsters are entertained by children’s songs. Photoshoots held at the studio are captured on two backdrops: plain white and black, while photos taken at your favourite location or at home rely on natural light to create that stunning shot. For a special treat, the studio can recommend hair and make-up artists. Littleones won Favourite Photography Studio (Gold Award) in the Expat Living Readers’ Choice Awards 2018.
What to expect
You can choose to have your photoshoot in the studio, at a location of your choice or in the comfort of your home. The studio is the most popular spot for newborn shoots, while families with children over, say, four years of age are good on location where the kids can roam freely. Your photos can be collated in a keepsake album, or printed on canvases, acrylic blocks, placed in traditional framing or provided in digital formats. Prices for creative photo sessions start from $350.
White Room Studio
White Room Studio offers a cosy atmosphere with loads of natural lighting. Housed in a black-and-white Peranakan shophouse, the lovely space and the friendly brother-and-sister team put families (and furry friends!) at ease. Believing in capturing natural expressions, the studio encourages minimal posing or use of props. Have something special in mind? Arrange a pre-shoot chat and let the photographer know your specifications. To glam up for the occasion, book the professional in-house hair and make-up services. After the shoot, a viewing session will be organised for you to enjoy and pick your photos.
What to expect
The Family Studio Portraiture Collection package ($390) includes pre-shoot advice, photographer’s creative direction during the 1.5-hour shoot (up to four people) and a gallery viewing session (50 to 70 photographs). Choose to have your prints featured on art canvases, metal wall displays, acrylic or wooden art blocks and even bespoke coffee table books. And, of course, you can opt to get them retouched in digital format.
The Studio Loft
The Studio Loft is a cosy boutique studio specialising in children and family portraiture, capturing fun and genuine moments. Choose to have your photoshoot in the studio or at an outdoor location of your choice. Add on makeup and hair services if you wish. The studio also captures behind-the-scene videos, which are fun to look back on after your session. Leave it all to this award winning, talented all-woman team and let them make your grumpy toddler (or hubby!) smile and have some fun!
What to expect
The Studio offers a variety of packages. The popular Teeny Weeny newborn photography package ($400) is a three-hour session for baby and parents, with all props and cute baby outfits provided. There’s also the new A Day In Your Life package ($350), a fun two-hour lifestyle shoot held in the comfort of your home and surrounds. Pick out as many or as little photos as you like from their a la carte menu and bring them home in prints, photobooks, canvases or digital copies.
