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.

From my initial inquiry to the enjoyable photoshoot experience and the prompt delivery of the final photos, my journey with Tomato Studio was nothing short of extraordinary. The team displayed exceptional professionalism, offering a truly personalized and seamless experience. They answered every question I had and prepared all the outfits for me in a snap. I was able to book my session and receive the final photos in just about 1 week! I was a little nervous going into the studio as it’s my first photoshoot ever, but Master Photographer Hart’s calmness, patience and easy-going personality made me feel very comfortable. I had also brought my chihuahua to the studio to be photographed, and even he was calm around Hart! The studio was also very clean and cozy. Hart guided me on how to pose and identified angles that accentuated my best features, which was very helpful for a first timer like myself. He was also very patient during my multiple outfit changes and really put me and my dog at ease, making the whole experience really fun and efficient. Hart’s proficiency extended to the post-production phase, as he was able to edit all the photos within 2-3 days! They came out so stunning, and I am so thrilled with the results that I have been wholeheartedly recommending Tomato Studio to all my friends. I look forward to working with Tomato Studio for my next milestone photoshoot, confident in their ability to deliver another exceptional photography experience.

3rd timing engaging Hart to take our family photos. He has a knack for engaging the children and makes them at ease during the photography session, so the photos turn out GREAT. We always look forward to receiving the final product (photo edit and the prints)! 😊

Worked with Hart for the first time this month for a newborn and family shoot. Hart was able to communicate with my toddler who cooperated on posing photos with us and our newborn. The photos that came out were really nice, candid, and professional - everything that we expected from the shoot. The session also was not draggy and everything was done quickly with really good photos. The photos were also well edited quickly and we received the preview within a day. Thank you Hart!

Hart is just brilliant with kids. He’s able to engage and quickly make the kids feel comfortable with him, that they actually follow instructions… most of the time. He’s also extremely gentle with newborns and gives you every confidence he knows what he is doing. The result? Amazing family photos!

Did a multi-generation shoot of 25pax with Hart, a seemingly daunting task that Hart handled with such ease. He gave us time to relax and settle, and took effort to know each of us so he could suggest placements and positions. He is deft at handling kids, bringing out their natural smiles, and patiently coaxed a crying toddler into smiles. He may not be the cheapest but he brings out the best of the subjects, through a very enjoyable experience.

Hart strives to know your preference and style right from the beginning which is great as it helps clients to envisage the type of outcome they would like to achieve. The entire experience was fast, smooth and comfortable as you would expect from a very experienced photographer. Importantly, the outcome is awesome and is something I would cherish for many years to come. Thanks Hart!

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!
