Minimalistic Newborn Photography - Simple but not easy!

These few quotes from famous people make a profound effect on the work that Hart is producing as he live and breathe Minimalistic Newborn Photography.
 
Simplicity Is The Ultimate Sophistication – Leonardo Da Vinci

Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean and make it simple. But its worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains
– Steve Jobs
 
 
It is always great to have options but sometimes, having too many options simply leaves us feeling lost, not knowing what or how to choose.
 
This can happen in many aspects of life but we would like to focus on what we do best; our Signature Minimalistic Newborn Fine Art Photography.
 
Naturally, you would have done some research and you might be feeling pretty overwhelmed with the choices available. Few props? Many props? Cute outfits? Themed setting? 
 
Or perhaps deep down, you’d actually appreciate something minimalistic, yet classy and meaningful too?

Your Baby Should be #1

 
To be fair, including props in your photos does indeed add a WOW factor to the eyes of the viewer. However that also means that the props themselves stand out more. The eyes tend to notice the props first, then your baby. And as your baby has now become the centre of your universe, shouldn’t your baby take up the No. 1 spot instead? 
 
It is true that using props and themes are very common these days with many parents choosing these styles.. So it makes their newborn photos pretty much the same as everyone else’s… Quite like McDonald’s in the hamburger world! Although there is nothing wrong with this, it is very common and probably more suited for people who love to follow trends.
 

Trends

 
If you think about it, trends will always come and go. What is considered the “in” thing now will eventually become “outdated” after some time and props tend to amplify this more. 
 
At Tomato Photo, we are of the opinion that a Newborn Photography Session should revolve around your newborn baby. This is why Tomato Photo’s style of newborn photography adopts a minimalistic approach; clean and simple with minimal use of props. Our focus will be on your newborn’s unique expressions, connections between parent and child, and how your baby looked when they were still in Mummy’s tummy. 

 

Expressions

 
What sets us apart is also the fact that we specifically look out for the ever-changing expressions of your newborn. This can be quite difficult to predict and is precisely why we are known for this! It takes minimalism to the next level which is all about pure, individual expressions. We find that this is one thing that parents really love!

But Why Minimalistic?

It has always been our vision to capture pure moments and genuine connections of your Family without the distractions of props, themes or costumes. And when it comes to Newborn photography, Hart’s original vision remains relevant even till today; to beautify a simple form of a newborn’s pose that mimics their positions in the womb. 

Capturing newborn images like this represents truth, purity, the miracle of life.. These are things that even time cannot change for they are timeless! And when it is your own baby in the images, you will certainly feel a tug at your heartstrings and be glad that you took the time to freeze those precious moments. 

Hart’s vision has remained unchanged since he started his professional photographic journey in 2008 and his style of work is still relevant today and still very much requested time and again. Clients simply love images that reflect their baby in the purest forms. Surely, that must count for something? Perhaps less really is more.

The newborn Photoshoot experience was heart-warming and very professional. Hart handles newborn very well. The photos were very well-taken which captured all the expressions of our new born and us. Overall awesome experience! – Quek Shu Jun

Thank you Hart for the beautiful memories created for us! You have exceeded our expectations, capturing all possible angles of our newborn in such minute detail from his little ears to his hair and michelin folds on his back. You have also captured his many expressions and behaviours which was exactly what we were looking for. It was a joy watching how you handled the whole shoot by yourself with such ease and professionalism and how naturally you dealt with our baby. We’re sure he felt very relaxed too. And not forgetting the speed at which we could receive our photos, within the very next day! Thank you so much!
