Whether you’re a selfie-obsessed influencer or freak out whenever someone points a camera your way, there are certain milestones in life that might require you to go for a professional photoshoot.
Maybe you just graduated and want to wear your graduation gown for the last time.
Maybe you have a newborn and wish to commemorate the first month of your baby’s life.
Whatever the reason, here’s how much local photography studios like Serangoon Broadway and Raffles Studio charge for professional photoshoots.
