Some may think doing a family photoshoot here in Singapore may sound like a waste of money. But its payback often comes with many returns.
It is true when they say “a photograph keeps a moment from running away.” While family photoshoots in Singapore are definitely not cheap, it will surely be worth more than a dime decades later, when you reminisce on your kids’ impish days. A sentimental investment as we might call it!
If you’re on the look out for family photoshoots in Singapore, here is a list of photo studios and family photographers you can check out.

Of course, pets and kids are allowed too! Simply pay $10 for an additional pax.

The one and only wet-plate photography studio in Singapore, Hip Xiong (Hokkien term for ‘photo-taking’) Photo Studio prides itself in its expert craft which dates back to the 1850’s. While it may seem like an uncanny photo studio for family photoshoots in Singapore, trust that this is something you’d not want to miss out on. Especially since they are permanently closing by the year-end.
For a family of 1 to 5 pax, you can expect to pay $500 for a weekday slot and $550 for a weekend slot. You’ll receive a 5×7″ wet plate, with an additional plate costing $300/$350 (weekday/weekend).
