Welcome Chinese New Year in style – just like Jorsia and her baby boy!
When you step into our 2-storey boutique shophouse studio, you will feel almost as if spring has truly arrived. With an abundance of cherry blossoms, lanterns, and firecrackers in our spacious 2400 sq ft studio, this will be a Lunar New Year to remember!
Apart from enjoying all the delicacies and red packets, CNY ultimately reminds us to count our blessings in life: health, happiness, and prosperity!
Even if some family members and relatives only get to see each other once a year, Chinese New Year is a chance for everybody to reconnect and catch up. Time is precious indeed – a family photoshoot can help you remember this significant event and create fond memories to cherish forever.
So get ready to usher in the Year of the Tiger at White Room Studio, the Finest Natural Light photo studio in Singapore!
Welcome Chinese New Year Together!
Have you ever heard of the saying “Out with the old, in with the new”? Many families will gather as one during this special season. CNY also signals the dawn of many new beginnings, so this is the grand opportunity to renew your Chinese New Year family photos if you have not yet done so!
All the décor you see are personally sourced from the finest shops in Chinatown. They are also specially handpicked for their great symbolism.
For example, the beautiful handcrafted lanterns suspended from the studio’s ceiling represent luck and good fortune! And of course, the more the merrier (or luckier)!
At White Room Studio, our photographers are highly experienced in photographing large families with children and grandparents. We will give you posing tips and ideas, capturing a variety of group shots, which means you get to have the best Chinese New Year family photos for a lifetime.
To help you get started on your Chinese New Year photoshoot prep, we got the answers to your burning questions below!
What should I wear for a Chinese New Year photoshoot?
We recommend wearing colour-coordinated outfits as a family! For a Chinese Year New family photoshoot, auspicious colours like red or pink are highly encouraged! You can match these coloured tops with darker bottoms for a better contrast on pictures.
Kids and toddlers can be dressed in brighter colours, while older kids and adults can work with darker shades and accessories as well. Overall, the goal is to achieve a cohesive look in your family photos.
For the men and boys, shirts with mandarin collar or a formal button-up will look stylish on camera. As for the ladies, dresses like cheongsams, Peranakan-style kebayas or modern two-piece outfits are perfect.
Do try to avoid busy or loud patterns on your clothes, simple is best to help you stand out from the decorations in the background!
“We had high expectations for our Chinese New Year family photoshoot, especially after browsing through White Room Studio’s photography portfolio. And White Room Studio didn’t disappoint Their photographer was very patient and engaging, despite having to chase after 4 kids. We love how the photos turned out and how they captured the moments. 5 stars !”

How many pax are allowed for Chinese New Year family photoshoot?

Our award-winning studio has greeted multi generations over the years – hundreds of families with both the young and old. If there is one thing that can always make grandparents smile, it is their grandchildren. So there is no better time than Chinese New Year to take your family photos with your grandpa and grandma!
What time is best for a Chinese New Year family photoshoot?
Our studio is open from Monday to Sunday. The earliest photoshoot timeslot starts at 9.30am and the latest is 5pm! Our studio receives all-day natural light thanks to the row of French-style windows on the third floor.
There is plenty of natural sunlight in the morning, and of course you also get the famous “golden hour” in the late afternoon! Natural light gives you a soft and warm glow, which makes you look more flattering in portraits.
To book your shoot, simply let us know which date and time you prefer, and we will take care of the rest for you!
