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 did a beautiful family shoot with Hart - the shoot itself was fantastic and he was able to keep our large multigen family engaged and captured the happy spirit of the day. Unfortunately, after downloading the shoot pics, we managed to lose track of the photos. As my dad is quite ill and had requested these , we were crushed to find we could not locate the images he wanted. Hart was immediately responsive when we reached out and located the copies of our shoot, saving the day. Not only did he create a gorgeous set of memories for us, but his prompt and caring after-sales action was amazing. 5* for both quality and support. Would recommend highly as an artist and also as a professional. Thank you Hart!

My company had an extremely good experience with Hart in our recent corporate photoshoot. Everyone in the company is very pleased with the photos. Below are some key aspects that made this photoshoot an extraordinary journey. Highlights: 1. Professionalism Redefined: The photographer, Hart exhibited unparalleled professionalism and skill, capturing the essence of each employee with precision and finesse. Their ability to evoke genuine engagement and empowerment was truly remarkable, resulting in portraits that radiated authenticity and charisma. 2. Friendly and Supportive: Hart is very accommodative to our requests, and he goes the extra mile to help with another group of staff for onsite photoshoot. He still manages to produce the high-resolution artwork given such a short timeframe due to our business set-up requirements. 3. Engagement and Empowerment: Beyond just capturing images, the photoshoot served as a catalyst for engagement and empowerment among our team members. It provided a platform for individuals to express themselves authentically, fostering a culture of inclusivity and collaboration. I really appreciate and feel thankful to be able to work with Hart on this assignment. I will still want to work with him for the upcoming assignment and refer him to my friends. Thank you so much, Hart and Team!

Hart is easy going and friendly. He could sense that my kids( teenager) ain’t very interested in photo taking 🤣but he made them feel at ease. Most importantly, the pictures taken of them were very beautiful and natural. Hart and his team’s responses are very quick and professional too !

We chose Hart as his aesthetics for newborn photos were exactly what we wanted, minimal and natural. He is really talented and captured so many unique expressions and poses. We had a hard time choosing what we really liked as there were so many great ones. We’ll definitely be returning for more family photos!

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.

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.
