For 6 years, Singapore has became a second home to me and my family. In this beautiful country, I have gotten my first official job as a doctor, became a wife & a mother to 3 adorable boys, got recognised as a lifestyle blogger and collected wonderful memories, experiences & friendships along the way. But like any good adventure book, my chapter in Singapore will come to an end as another chapter of new adventure to another country is beckoning us to turn a new page.
So to preserve the memories of Singapore, I thought having an official family photoshoot would be the best way to create lasting beautiful memories. I partnered with Bespoke Photography to capture our Singapore life chapter and preserve it for a lifetime. I saw their amazing portfolio, both photography and videography, and my husband & I were certain that we have the perfect team to achieve the vision we want.
Bespoke Photography is a family of talented and experienced photographers that captures youthful and vibrant images that is tailored-made to your preference. They have an extensive list of services from wedding, newborn shoot, family photos, maternity shoot, events, birthdays and even pet photography. They believe in capturing photos in natural light to accentuate the subject’s best feature and utilised photography’s rule of third in the most artistic and skilled technique.
When we were brainstorming on the venue for the photoshoot, I thought of Singapore Botanic Gardens because in our years here in Singapore, we have never visited it yet and I was thinking that it would be a good opportunity to hit two birds in one stone – visit Singapore Botanic Gardens and have our family pictorial. (Don’t worry, we didn’t hit any actual birds in the garden, in case you are wondering.)
It was a very sunny Saturday morning when my little family together with our nanny headed to Singapore Botanic Gardens to meet with Bespoke photographer. It was suggested that we wear light color clothes to contrast the vibrant surroundings of the place. It was nice that Bespoke took the lead when we started and knows the best spots for good photos in Botanical Gardens. We observe the professionalism and attentiveness of the Bespoke photographer. My family and I were initially awkward and conscious with lenses directed at us. But we were instructed that we didn’t need to pose or look at the camera. So we just enjoyed our time with each other as the camera clicked away capturing moments & memories. We noticed that Bespoke will bend down low or tiptoe up high to get the best photography angle for their customers even under the blazing hot Singapore sun. Taking photos of a family with young children especially very active young boys that can be challenging to direct and with short attention span, it wasn’t a problem with Bespoke. Photographer was very patient with the kids and got wonderful images of my toddlers climbing trees & having a grand playtime fun. I was happy we also had some photos together with our nanny, who has been like a family to us. I also took the opportunity to have some solo photos to update my photo for my About Me section of my blog.
It was an enjoyable photo shoot for the family. We were even more delighted when we got the final results of the photos a few days after the shoot. Here are some of the photos from our family pictorial:
