6-11 Months -Sitters Baby Photography

Babies that are about 6-11 months old seems to be a stage where their personality is fully form yet not being shape by world. They are happy to do what they are happy to do and very intrigued with what’s around them. They are just a pure joy to work with and Love it…

Tomato Photo is an established brand and being associated with one of the best in Fine Art Newborn Photography and Lifestyle Family and Children Photography. It focuses on things that touches people’s heart and that’s what the brand is known for.

The baby grows so fast and changes so much during the 1st year of their lives. Many parents do the popular milestone shoots at newborn and 1 year old. However, the in-between stage around 6-11 months where many various expressions, curiosity and mannerisms are worth preserving.

It was a very pleasant surprise that one of my clients whom I did the model call wrote about the experience on her blog… you can read about it at https://j0annesim.wordpress.com/2015/04/20/a-shoot-with-tomato-photo/

A Mums reflection …

As parents we are caught in this constant mental and emotional state of wanting our children to grow up so that we can see all of their achievements and then on the other hand wanting them to remain small and child like forever needing their parents.  Its this constant conundrum that we go back and fourth with that keeps us on our toes as parents.  

Its for this reason that I love being a photographer.  I recently met with one of my clients who is pregnant for the second time and with this pregnancy she finds herself reflecting over and over again her firsts newborns photos.  She uses these images to try and imagine what it will be like welcoming this new baby in the family dynamic and how much she loved those first few months of bonding with her first.
This is how powerful family imagery is, it brings back raw emotions of being a parent to a newborn and it creates the perfect moment of sweet reflection and excitement for the impending future arrival.

The client revealed that reflecting back on those first newborn photos made her proud as a mother, how much she had accomplished and how much more confident she felt for the arrival of this new baby.  She even mentioned that she is looking forward to the next newborn shoot as she feels so much more relaxed about the whole experience of motherhood. With a witty joke she comment that “you always have to do for the second what you did for the first.”  Another reason that I love my job – just that the returning clients who come back and show me their new and extended family
Happy growing families are my inspiration and I can’t wait to meet this new arrival as I have so many before.” Time flies” I reminded my client, enjoy this second pregnancy and see you soon.

If you are interested to have your newborn photographed, please give us a call on 8858 0088.  Make sure to book in early as we only do a limited set of newborn shoots per month




Portraits – We Keep It Classic, A Style That Never Dates

Since 2008, Tomato Photo’s portrait style had been people focused, classic, simple and natural. We want you to see the person in the photo first. 

So many photographers like to claim that they have their own unique style.  Most will trade this style in for the latest trends and fashionable creations. 

As a successful photographer I believe in believing in yourself and your skill set. Sticking to what your heart knows best and recognizing your strengths and style. 

I love meeting people, I am intrigued by kid’s curiousity, their behaviour, why they do what they do. I observe, I pre-empt and I anticipate. That’s how I get to to capture the moments and expressions that parents didn’t know existed. Capturing the portrait of the person. No distractions from fancy props and what not, just you.

At Tomato Photo we focus on continuing to make our style a stand out classic. 

Most clients tell us that there is something in our photos that they like but not quite sure what… They feel comfortable looking at the photos, they can relate and they look real. We presume what they mean is the ‘natural’ness’  in our photos.


No Cheesy Poses;

No Outdated Props or

Forced smiles. 

Just you being you.



As the years have gone on, we believe that Tomato Photo has remained stead fast in their approach, quality and style.  Most of our clients choose us because of our style and strong brand.  Give us a call to book in your shoot  with us.  Let us use our skills to capture your family in this precious moment in time.  Call or Whatsapp our studio at +6588580088 to make a booking.

Home – A Perfect Place – Newborn Photography Singapore

Home – Nesting Place

There is no place like home when its time to nest…

Many Mums and Mum-to-be know that nesting feeling they get just before and after baby is born.  You feel so safe and comfortable in your own home as you adjust to your new little bundle of joy. Many new Mums are also taking care to heal the wounds of labour and c- sections which means they need to stay at home and rest as much as they can. 

This is when you most appreciate that Hart Tan from Tomato Photo can come to your home and work his photography to preserve the memories of your little newborn.

Home – Stress-Free For Newborn Photoshoot

Picture this…. You and your husband just got home from the hospital with your tiny newborn. You know these moments won’t last long and in a matter of weeks your precious bundle will no longer be a newborn.

You are looking forward to your newborn photography session in a couple of days; you are so glad your photographer is willing to do the session in the comfort of your own home, it takes so much of the stress out of taking pictures. That exactly what you want for your baby, a stress free and loving environment as they get to know this new world all around them.

In Confinement? No Problem

Many Mums in Singapore find themselves on confinement and are unable to leave their home for the first month after giving birth for health reasons.  This is also perfect for those who want those newborn shots but don’t want to break the confinement period.  Dads also like the fact that photography can be done at home as they can relax and are more open to those embracing shots with their wife and baby.  Having the shoot at home means total convenience as you have all of babies items and comforts all around you.  Their is no need to pack up that big baby bag and pram and track down a taxi, simple sit on your sofa and let Hart do all the work.

How Long Is The Session?

Time is not a factor. We understand some mums have back to back appointments with the gyn/ob, post-natal massage, or child’s vaccination visits and you don’t have the whole day to spare for newborn photoshoot.

At Tomato Photo, we are perfectionists and this means that Hart will often spend a some time at your home until he captures the right shot of your new little love (usually 1.5-2 hours).  Sufficient time that you can feed, change and burp baby so that they are happy little posers.  Our home sessions are all about comfort, family and bonding which can be achieved in this stress free environment

Looking at these images its hard to believe that we are not in a studio….

Its all about memories, one day your now grown up baby can see where and how you lived at the time of their birth…..

Tomato Photo will create a relaxing and peaceful environment in the comfort of your own home while you simply relax and enjoy the show.

Client will get our signature Fine Art newborn photography as well as the lifestyle newborn photography with the family. Here are the 5 different variations of styles you will get from one session.

Last but not least…  clients testimonial from both Mom & Dad for Hart’s work just tells you why he is always highly sought after…

Tomato Photo 3 in 1 Studio – Family Portrait Photographer Singapore

Success in the  Studio

We always take photos on our phones as it is so convenient to capture that candid shot.  We can then share these on social media or WatsApp, but what if we want  something larger for our walls or desks? We can’t use our phones anymore and its at this  point in time when most of our clients give us a call.  When it comes to family portraits we want to create something that our clients can treasure and be proud to show off.  These photos should be invaluable and capture the every day connections and strong relations within the family unit.  This is when our studio is the first place our clients turn, we have all the reasons for you to consider our studio as your one stop shop to capturing precious memories to last you a lifetime….

Here is a quick and easy reference list for why our studio sessions are so popular

Its all about Weather and Convenience

If a photo is being taken outdoors, you can’t control what the weather will do. Our studio has temperature control with air-condition and comfy sofa’s for those in-between action shots.  Convenience wise for young children this is a great option with toilets and toys nearby.  Located in the trendy Joo Chiat historical precint, we can give you beautiful shots in front of the old Singaporean shop houses so that you have a unique cultural perspective, perfect for those expat clientele who want to capture their time in Singapore or simply Singaporean who feel strongly about their own culture.

Relax and natural poses

Its timeless to shoot in a studio.  You can create any look or feel you desire to get that relax outcome.  In the studio you are the centre of attention in the shot with emphasis on a particular moment captured, the location can at times steal from this concept.  Photos shot in a photography studio can be 3 different type, a more formal and time-tested look, relax happy images using natural light in the studio, as well as those outdoor shots just around the studio with Joo Chiat’s Character . The a combination of the 3 type of images in 1 single location will be cherished by your family for generations to come.  When you’re going for a formal, professional look in your photo, a photo studio setting is hard to beat. All of the elements can be managed to create that undeniable polished, professional look that will impress all who see it.

Perfection in Lighting

At Tomato Photo, Hart is a master of lighting, he create different classy studio flash that add glamour and beauty in your images, natural light control to give you the soft and comfy look and beautiful combination of outdoor location, a 3 in 1 session makes Tomato Photo the most unique studio to date.  What most clients don’t know is that the camera flash in the studio can be the best make up artist ever.  When using the flash the photographer can control the brightness and play up strong areas and hide unwanted shadows on the face and body.  This is the perfect way to enhance those areas that a client loves such as a beautiful pregnant belly or the colour of your toddlers cute curly hair.  Lighting can also control the background of the shoot giving you more options for posing and interacting with family members.  Think of lighting as the perfect canvas for any artists masterpiece.

Its all about the Experience

The studio is that perfect happy medium for all ages of the family group.  Studio experiences are also more organised, flowing and serene. Remember our studio also offer a myriad of outdoor backdrop just around the corner from the studio, literary.  Tranquility and comfort translate in front of the camera into perfect casual timeless photography.  They have a composed energy and give clients the opportunity to interact in a calm and relaxed manner.  A good photographer focuses on the clients experience cause they know that its this happy experience that translates so well on film.  Shoots should never be rushed and communication between family members and the photographer should be encouraged.  In a studio your photographer can capture shots before your little ones attention span runs out which is very important for those ever cherish family group shots.
