family photographer near me | Singapore

singapore offers lots and lots of beautiful locations for family photography sessions. since i get the ‚location question‘ a lot, in this post i’m going to take you on a little tour of my favourite photo session spots in Singapore (listed in no particular order), which are great for children as well as families and couples.

Jacob Ballas Childrens Garden is a beautiful place for child and family photos. i absolutely adore the wood-and-rope hanging bridge, and there’s also a playground with slides, a little pond, a sand pit and even a water play area (better at the end of the session! ;)) – your session will feel more like a family playdate than a photo session, which is always my goal anyway!

the Singapore Botanic Gardens are an all-time-favourite of course, and you can see plenty of photographers out and about there every weekend morning. the white pavilion is especially loved by wedding photographers and their soon-to-be-married couples, but there are many other beautiful spots for all types of photography. it’s best to go early in the morning, to avoid both the heat and the crowds – and remember to bring mosquito spray!

beautiful light is the most important thing for beautiful photographs, and Chijmes with its white painted, bright corridors offers plenty of that – even on rainy days. on top of that, the spiral staircases, the tiled floor, and the beautiful columns make for a gorgeous background too! however, the use of the location for your family photography session is not free of charge, a fee has to be paid via the Chijmes website.

Tanjong Beach on Sentosa is another location where the kids will not want the photo session to end. i mean, when did you hear a child say ’no‘ to playing in the sand and splashing in the ocean? exactly! while the light is gorgeous in the early morning, and the heat more bearable, my favourite time of day for a session here is the late afternoon: the sunset over the sea is the perfect backdrop for beautiful images!

the next location is urban and a bit ‚grungy‘, and i loooove it: Haji Lane. the colourful shophouses, the graffiti, the grills that are still locked when the photo session is scheduled early in the morning… and yes, i even love the trashcans that are still out then! there’s hardly any traffic (particularly on weekend mornings), so it’s suitable for children as well.

more shophouses can be found on beautiful Duxton Hill. a bit cleaner, less ‚grungy‘ than the last location, it features pretty cobblestone pavement, typical singaporean shophouse-charm, and some beautiful covered walkways. cars can’t enter the cul-de-sac, so it’s another location where kids can play and run around safely.

would you have thought that Marina Bay Sands can be a good location for a family photography session? of course, the outdoor area with the singapore skyline in the background is always a winner, and so is the art science museum with its unique architecture. but the inside of mbs also offers some great spots for portraits, and because of the beautiful ‚glass-tiled‘ roof, plenty of gorgeous light comes in. again, it is best to schedule your session here early to avoid the crowds – and weekdays are better than weekends.

after this little tour of singapore, we come back to a location that is always perfect for your family photography session:
Your HOME!
it’s where the kids are most comfortable and at ease (and probably you are, too! ;)), but most importantly it is the place where most of your family memories are made! it’s where you play together, laugh together, cuddle each other, where you enjoy most of your family meals together, where you have your special family routines and where you tuck the kids in each night. it doesn’t have to be perfect and look like out of an interior design catalogue – it just has to be ‚you‘. :)
