    Studio Photography session usually a better choice for maternity session mainly because it is private,  cool as well as the control in lighting to show off the new shape.

    Best time for maternity session is between 33-36weeks…

    Beachy Backdrops are the Best

    Visiting the beach is always a great bonding activity so here are some tips for the ultimate family outdoor photos.

    Take photographs with the sea as your focus.

    We love shots when the kids and parents are frolicking in the waves and enjoying the sea breeze.  Don’t be afraid to get in around knee deep and splash your family in fun and entertaining moments.

    Ready Set Action!

    Any photographs with your pets or local wildlife in them alludes to freedom and fun. Capture these moments with your child, and the memories would be for life. Shots of children playing with birds or their beloved pooch display the innocence and fun of childhood.  For Mums and girls remember to have spare hair-tie on hand in case its gets too windy.  You don’t want your face to be covered in hair in all your family shots

    Write it in the sand…

    Visually document their writing skills their young handwriting and snap away at the proud pose when they realize  they can spell their names.  Include all the families name to mark a moment in time when you were all together and playful

    Use the sunrise to enhance your image

    Take advantage of silhouette shots using the natural lighting and shadows.  Use all the colours of the sunrise to create dimension and depth to your family photos.  Remember your sunblock for any outdoor shoot!


    Take a family photo while holding hands

    Take group shots of the family holding onto each other and walking away from the camera to show the unity and love shared between members

    Baby Milestone Photography – 6-9 Months Sitters Baby Photoshoot

    Baby Milestone Photography – What Is it?

    Baby photoshoots that involve babies around 6-9 months old are fun to do. It is around this time when baby reach their sitting up milestone.

    They seem to be in a stage where their personality is fully form; yet not being shape by world. They explore the world around them and as they develop, they reach their milestones at their own pace.

    6-9 Months Sitters Baby Milestone

    Their first milestones would be to be able to roll over by themselves and be on their tummy around 3 months. Liftling their head thereafter.

    Around the 6-9 months mark, the baby tend to be able to sit up independently.

    It doesn’t stop there!

    They’ll move on to moving around by crawling on all fours, on 3’s or they belong to the bump shifters group.

    They are happy to do what they are happy to do and very intrigued with what’s around them. They are just a pure joy to work with and Love it…

    Why Do Baby Milestone Photography?

    The baby grows so fast and changes so much during the 1st year of their lives. Many parents do the popular milestone shoots at newborn and 1 year old.

    However, the in-between stage where they exhibits various expressions, curiosity and mannerisms are worth preserving.

    When they learn how to sit up around the 6-9 months, they tend to push towards the next milestone of crawling instead of going backwards to being on the tummy for long.

    So, how long do parents want to procrastinate before you miss capturing this milestone again? They won’t sit still for long once pass this milestone:)

    Hart was a dream to work with! All those other reviews on how good he is with children were certainly not exaggerated (if anything perhaps understated!) He really does have a lot of chemistry with children and managed to get some great shots of my usually impossible to sit still toddler. Would highly recommend him and will definitely be back. Hart was also very flexible with regards to timing and location – which was very much appreciated.

    Graduation Photo Shoot – Tomato Photo Studio Singapore

    Graduation Season Now In Full Swing

    To all Graduates, you and your families are probably busy getting ready for the big day. For many of you, this day will be one of the biggest milestones in your life. The years of investing your time, energy, finances and hard work throughout your educational journey has finally come to fruition, and this calls for a celebration!

    As you celebrate this achievement, it is also important to take a step back and recognise the special people in your life who have supported you throughout your journey to get to this point..

    Your Parents.

    It is time to do something special for them… Something every parent wants, but will say “no need” to. Celebrate your success with them and make them proud.

    During my own graduation back in those days, I remember that all my parents wanted was a nice portrait for them to hang at home and look back on and to say… “I have succeeded in my life in bringing up a child to become someone special.”

    One of the greatest gifts that you could offer your parents is the gift of memories. Tangible memories for keeps. Memories that they can proudly display at home for all to see. 

    To the parents of Graduates, perhaps your last family photoshoot was done when they were little children? You may have been waiting for this opportunity to take a much overdue extended family photo to mark your achievements for the years of hard work in providing for your children and giving them the knowledge and tools to grow up and be self sufficient, successful individuals. If your own parents are around, bring them along as well and celebrate 3 or perhaps 4 generations of success!

    Sometimes life requires us to wear many hats… Not forgetting Graduates who have had to manage their time and resources to juggle their studies and raise their families, sometimes whilst holding down full-time jobs at the same time! It is no easy feat – you and your supportive families definitely deserve to be celebrated!

    Tomato Photo has a small collection of academic dress available for use during our family and graduation photoshoots. We also have an alternative studio that can fit 40+ pax as well as a lift landing which provides convenience for elderly folks who use mobility devices such as wheelchairs.

    All you need to do is book a date and time with us at 8858 0088; Email or Whatsapp Us and we will guide you through the whole process, starting from any preparations prior to the photoshoot right down to having that canvas of the family portrait hanging proudly in your living room.

    Let’s tick this off your bucket list together. It’s easy… that’s our promise.
