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 four great photography studios in Singapore where you’ll find family photographers who can capture that perfect portrait.
Ashley Low Photography
Well-lit and spacious, Ashley Low Photography puts in extra effort to make families feel comfortable. From a nappy-changing station equipped with necessary care products and complimentary snacks and drinks to a colourful play area filled with toys, parents and kids can look forward to a pleasant experience at the homely studio. During your newborn shoot, take your pick of props such as hats and backdrops in various tones and shades. For maternity photoshoots, mums-to-be can choose from a range of maternity gowns and wraps. There’s also a makeup room with large mirrors and special lighting.
What to expect
The popular newborn photoshoot (from $300) includes the work of a master photographer and an assistant, usage of all props and a customised setup. For babies aged three to 12 months, customers can choose from fun themes such as the Beach, Garden or Princess as part of the Tummy to Tippy Toes package (from $150). If you want to photograph the whole gang, opt for the Studio Family session (from $150). For all sessions, you’ll need to purchase a separate package (from $400) for fully edited soft copies, high quality prints as well as canvases and albums.
At Littleones Photography, award-winning 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 the duo with songs and games. Photoshoots held at the studio are captured on two backdrops – classic white and black – while photos taken at your favourite location or at home rely on natural light to create that stunning shot. The studio can also recommend hair and make-up artists to glam you up.
Did you know? Littleones has clinched the Gold Award for Favourite Photography Studio in the Expat Living Readers’ Choice Awards for two years’ running!
What to expect
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 the age of around four years are good on location or at home where they can roam freely. Photos are hand crafted into keepsake albums, fine art canvases, acrylic blocks or placed in traditional frames. Alternatively, they can be purchased as digital files. Prices for creative photo sessions start from $250.
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 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.
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.
