Kids grow up so fast, right? There’s no better way to capture the memories than by having a family photoshoot. 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 some great family photographers in Singapore who can capture that perfect portrait.
White Room Studio
Not a fan of overly photoshopped images? Prefer to capture your family in their natural element? That’s what you can get at White Room Studio. These family photographers create realistic photos that showcase your kids’ authentic charms. They’ve also recently been awarded Tatler’s “Best of Singapore” for the fourth year running.
What to expect
Posing is not required at White Room Studio – the team believes in bringing out great moments through candid snaps. Forget about props, as it’s your family that will take the spotlight! Located in a quaint Peranakan shophouse overlooking Fort Canning Park, the studio is blessed with endless natural light, giving photos a warm glow. The Family Studio Portraiture Collection package ($390) includes pre-shoot advice, a photographer’s creative direction during the 1.5-hour shoot (up to four people), and a gallery viewing session. Choose to have your prints featured on art canvases, metal wall displays, acrylic or wooden art blocks and even in 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 the fun and genuine moments. You can choose to have your photoshoot in the studio or at an outdoor location, and they also capture behind-the-scenes videos and can arrange makeup and hair services. Leave it all to this award-winning all-woman team of family photographers and let them make your grumpy toddler (or hubby) smile!
What to expect
The 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 A Day In Your Life package ($350), a two-hour lifestyle shoot held in your home. Pick out how many photos you like and get them in prints, photobooks, canvases or digital copies. For something special, opt for Hello Baby, a unique documentary-style shoot at the hospital the day your baby is born. The team will capture your first hours as parents and when your older children meet their new sibling for the first time. The one- to two-hour shoot includes an eight-inch square photo book and CD of the session.
