It’s important to remember that family portrait photographs are a means of story telling. Photos can powerfully depict the ties of each family member and the strong bond that they share. Our parent’s generation might not have taken as many photos as this leaves many of us in the lurch when it comes to reflecting on our childhood visually or recalling important memories from events captured in film. The one of the great wonders of our new generation is the access we have to cameras and technology, all of this makes us less apprehensive about getting in front of the camera and allowing a photographer to shoot away our precious family portrait.
Tomato Photo focuses on the all important candid moments of our modern day family. Captured digitally are the moments shared between loved ones. With a focus on fun moments, this is the perfect opportunity to get shots done that reflect your family in its truest form. Photos that are too posed leaved parents feel awkward and kids that are impossible to control and get to sit still for each shot. Hart Tan from Tomato Photo believes that by allowing children to just be themselves and engage with them as they play naturally he can capture the best pictures of your little ones.
Here are the main reasons that families choose to get family photos done.
Firstly they want to show their family off and swell with pride when visitors comment on the wall hangings. A legacy perhaps to show that the people in it existed as a family.
Secondly they physical documentation of your child’s growth and maturity and lastly and we feel most importantly is preserving the precious memories of your little ones childhood.
Time seems to fly by and this gives mums and dads the opportunity to stop for a moment and capture these precious moments before the kids get bigger; or the parents getting older. Whilst we plan to get our own family portraits done periodically, let’s also remember to invite the grandparents to join in the shots; or organise everyone to do an extended family portrait.
After all, many of our parents are providers for us when we were younger; care-givers of our children; or ‘facetime’ grandparents for those who live apart from the grandkids.
Tomato Photo believes that displaying family photography on the walls of your home sends a strong message to your family and everyone who enters your home that my family means more to me than anything else in the world. All you have to do is ask someone what he or she would grab if their house were on fire. I’m sure most people you ask would say their family photos. Family portraits frame freeze important parts of our lives that often remind us why we work, love and live.

Hart could capture the genuine smiles and expressions on my kids’ faces, and that was what is important for me. The photo shoot was spontaneous and family-directed, i.e. you get the photos that YOU want. – Denise Rachel Yong
Lovely photos we had. Hart was actively engaged with my girls and both my hubby and I do not need to even “control” them. he totally had them under his control. And he really responded back with the photos taken so fast within 48 hours. – Sal Tan
Hart took photos of our family recently, and we were so impressed with his great demeanor and artistic eye. He is great with kids, and he even managed to get our 18 month old grumpy baby to crack a few smiles. Each setting he picked for the photos was really lovely. Very happy with our experience! – Lisa Blackard
