Outdoor Family Portraits In Studio? – Its Good To Have Options.

Outdoor Family Portrait In Studio?

At Tomato Photo, we continue to innovate as we understand the challenges of Singapore hot and humid weather.

Outdoor Family Portrait In Studio is the latest innovation as we lived in hot and humid weather present several challenges.

Here are some of the main challenges:

  1. Heat exhaustion: Hot and humid weather can quickly cause heat exhaustion and dehydration, making it uncomfortable for the family to stay outside for an extended period of time.
  2. Sun exposure: Direct sunlight can cause squinting, harsh shadows, and unflattering skin tones. It can also be challenging to find a suitable location that offers enough shade.
  3. Frizz and sweat: Humidity can cause hair to frizz and makeup to run, while sweat can leave unwanted shine and make the family members feel self-conscious.
  4. Equipment protection: The hot and humid weather can damage camera equipment, and the photographer may need to take extra precautions to protect their gear.

While we can plan the outdoor shoot earlier in the day or early evening, wouldn’t it be nice to have both indoor studio shoot in classic portrait done for the elderly while outdoor backdrop serve as a gap filler for the younger generation who likes something more dynamic.

Best part is the elderly make their way to our studio in their wheelchair; young families can push their stroller from drop off point to studio with no stairs! 

Outdoor Family Portrait In Studio is an answer to family who wanted the best of both worlds.

We had a very refreshing family photo shoot experience at Tomato Photo Studio on 21 January 2024. Hart was very creative, energetic and lively making my two young granddaughters very much at home. The photographic images turned out very natural and reflected well the mood. Thanks Hart and Hazel as well for providing the helpful information.

Hart of Tomato Studio is a superb family photographer. The moment our family met Hart for our session, we immediately felt at ease with his endearing smile and gentle disposition. He guided us throughout the whole session, using subtle gestures and pointers on how to stand and pose as naturally as possible. We had two attire changes (formal and casual) and did permutations of individual, group and various paired shots. The entire experience was seamless and the whole session was done in slightly over an hour. Hart is a true professional and we are extremely delighted with the resulting photos, sweet memories that we will share and cherish as a family, for many years to come. We will definitely recommend Hart to anyone who wishes to have a family photo shoot for any occasion.

Hart was fantastic! He managed to put my parents at ease and captured their beautiful smiles and all! We had so much fun at the studio and Hart played along - everyone was all praise! Even my ordinarily not so expressive husband had fun! Needless to say, the pictures came out authentically beautiful, and showed our laughters and joy. Thank you so much Hart! Your craft and professionalism - unparalleled. Our experience - priceless. #CTGratitude

Wonderful experience. We did an extended family shot with Hart. He is a wonder with the kids , all nine of them. Parents can just relax and let him work his magic touch. Obviously very experienced photographer with big extended families shots. Highly recommended.

A very cosy and well equipped studio. The whole family was made to feel at home before the 2 hrs photo shoot. Mr Hart was very competent and extremely professional during the session. He put all of us at ease and gives good tips for us to pose correctly. Thank you.

Our experience with photographer Hart from Tomato.sg was nothing short of exceptional! The booking process, led by Hazel, was not only smooth but also showed a personal touch with warm congratulations on our newborn. Hazel's attention to detail and awareness of our situation was impressive. On the day of the shoot, Hart's magical touch with babies immediately won us over. He took the time to understand our baby, ensuring the session resulted in the best possible outcomes. We highly recommend Tomato.sg for capturing precious moments with professionalism and a personal touch.

Tomato Photo and Hart were very helpful in advising on the photography session and products we would like to purchase. It was a newborn photography for my son. It was pouring and Hart shared that the carpark is not sheltered and advised us to drop off at the pick up point. He offered to lend us an umbrella if we don’t have one to cross the unsheltered carpark to the main building. It’s very heartening for Hart to think about the wellbeing of us and my son. Hart is very experienced in dealing with newborns. My less-than-2 week old son was so comfortable through the 1.5hr session and the pictures taken were able to be taken without any hiccups. The end products were simply breathtaking. Certainly will go back again and will recommend to others!

As we stepped into Tomato Studio, we were welcomed by Photograper Harto's warm and friendly smile. His studio has a living cozy space with snacks, coffee/tea and some boxes of toys which helped kept my two younger nepbews occupied and entertained while they were not required in certain shoots. Harto was able to capture everyone's attention including the four year old nephew. He was just looking into the camera and smiling all the time. No effort was needed or required from family (and this is also the request of Harto, just leave it to him) we call him the child whisperee lol. The whole oredering process was smooth and simple. There os no hard selling (what we really liked) and he will even do a suggested album upon request. Truth is there were like 250 pics after the 1 plus hour session, and it was hard to choose. His professional choices and mocked up album helped us a lot. After all the processing, Harto did a personal delivery to my parent's place which added another personal touch. We want to thank Harto and tomato Photo for the wonderful experience. Our family all enjoyed ourselves very much, and it feels very natural and not stressful, it was not a hurried take and get off session. It was truly a fun and enjoyable.

Its Always Good To Have Options

The idea of an Outdoor Photoshoot is always great but can be restrictive in terms of timing and the fact that we are always at the mercy of the weather which has been rather unpredictable lately!

Usually, the older generation tends to appreciate formal looking shots, while the younger folk enjoy a variety of looks, including outdoorsy images.

Why not have both options within one photo session?

These backdrops are large enough to fit up to 20 pax easily so multi-generational and big family shoots can benefit from having this added option in our studio.

To recap, these are some pointers to consider for your next Family Photoshoot in Tomato Photo Studio:
  • Rain or Shine Event. No sweat worrying about what the weather will be like on the day of your shoot, because with our new outdoor backdrops, we bring the outdoors, inside!
  • Flexible Timings. You can now schedule your studio session anytime from 8am to 5pm instead of waiting for specific outdoor conditions.
  • 7 Days A Week. Hart is usually available for bookings 7 days a week, including Public Holidays. So there is no need to worry about outside crowds, or taking leave from work.
  • My Elderly Parents Are Coming Too. To cater to older folk and anyone with mobility concerns, our studio is wheelchair and stroller friendly, with no stairs and just a few metres away from the lift landing. We also have plenty of parking, and a sheltered drop off area.
  • What Backdrops Can I Choose? Everyone is different so depending on your family and preferences, we have backdrops ranging from formal to fun and vibrant, from shots with natural light, to an actual outdoor area within our building and not forgetting the latest outdoor backdrops. Click HERE to explore our Studio Gallery.
  • Types of Photoshoots. Whether you are keen on a family shoot for your Individual Family, or a Multi-Generational/Big Family shoot, or a Graduation shoot, our studio can accommodate up to 30 pax comfortably.
If these sound good, get in touch with us soon to book in your next Family Session in the Studio!

If you’re like me who don’t take family studio shots often, you’ll want to pick one where everything will turn out beautiful. Not all studios are the same. The lighting at Tomato is SO MAGICAL. There are interesting shadow details that gives the photos so much depth. Plus Hart (the only photographer) is great with kids. The combination of these are priceless. Your family deserves the best. Pay a bit more. You’ll be happy you did when you see the results.

My family had really fantastic experience with Hart. He is amazing with the kid, knows how to make us smile and laughing all the time. I’ve also been thrilled with the results of each shoot, our photos are really beautiful. We will be back again for sure!
