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…

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

Just you being you.

When To Do Baby Photoshoot – Tomato Photo Studio

When Is The Best Time To Do Baby Photoshoots?

I was tidying up my file storage for the images that I took of my children for the past 10+ years. Gosh… time certainly flew past too quickly. They just don’t look like how they were anymore. I am glad I had all of those images captured and archived. It is my strong belief that every parent should archive images of their children. Be it on your phone right through to professional photos.

One of the most frequently asked question by clients would be:  “When is the good time to preserve those images for my children?” or “When is a good time for a family photoshoot?

Like what Dr Seuss will say… “You never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory”

A collection of baby and children’s photos that I captured since 2008 can be found in my Baby and Children Photography Portfolio.

Here is a compilation of a series of major milestones that I tend to capture for clients through photography.

Newborn Stage – 5-10 Days:

My vision in newborn photography is to record how a baby might look like in mommy’s tummy. Here are more on my thoughts of newborn photography, my signature style and why I do what I do. Find out more about what sort of images you can expect in one newborn session.

..There is a personal touch from Hart which you have to engage his service and you’ll know it…. – Faith Chan, 2018

Little Baby Stage – 4- 8 weeks

Understanding when is the best time and how to bring out the best out of baby at this young age usually require a lot of patience as well as expertise in handling the baby. At this age, they are happy, smiley and love interacting with people. Mommy’s sound usually makes them smile.

Hart was fantastic with 2-month old son! We had a wonderful time and the pictures came out beautifully! – Hui Li Kwong, 2018

Little Big Baby Photo Session (3-5 months)

I love cute, chubby and happy baby…  I tend to find baby is happy, laugh at silly noises and animated face. Understand what makes them giggles is something I enjoy… editing those smiley face tend to make me smile from the inside… that make me happy. Tummy time, teething, etc makes these little people move their mouth a lot. So there are tonnes of expression to be captured.

…captured the true essence of the boys’ smiles and every time we look at the photos, they blow us away!….- Lele Ng, June 2019

Sitters Baby Photoshoot (6-11 Months)

At this age, baby tend to be able to sit up independently… but they are a little more aware and picky about who to smile to… but if it is a little girl, daddy or mommy tend to make them smile… little boy love playing rough with daddy… but at the same time, love cuddle with mum. Fat chubby cheek is the most dominant feature of babies at this age… More Sitters Photos HERE.

Hart made us feel at ease so quickly, we were all very relaxed throughout the session. He made my sons giggle and captured some great shots. – Olivia Russell – 2018

12-18 Months Baby Photo Shoot

Curiosity is the key with baby at this age group. They are curious about the surrounding, they have the ability to move, crawl, cruise, even the first few steps. These are things that they do that motivate me to capture. I love to observe, allow the child to explore their world and capture the curiosity in them. It is also at this time where its interesting to watch them waddle along in the great outdoors when they just started to walk.

24 months and beyond:

They love activities…
they love running around…
they love to explore this world…

I love this shot of my 2nd child who love jumping up and down those steps… so care free, so happy… a world of possibility is under their feet.

….All those other reviews on how good he is with children were certainly not exaggerated (if anything perhaps understated!) He really does have a lot of chemistry with children and managed to get some great shots of my usually impossible to sit still toddler… – Bernice, October 2019


These are the first 2.5 years of a child’s life that is worth preserving. They all happen at different times of their lives for a very short period of time. You can do it yourself. However, we can make it simple for you…

Hart was lovely with my 3 year old! He was able to capture the expressions and essence of the moment perfectly, and we have not taken any family photos in the last 10 years. He does definitely have his way with kids. Looking forward to the shoot next year!

Facebook Review, July 2019

Hart personally took photos for my two boys. My older boy doesn’t like strangers and we can never get a proper photo of his beautiful smile. Hart, amazingly, did it! He captured the true essence of the boys’ smiles and every time we look at the photos, they blow us away!
We loved that he was really efficient, we have been to other studios and other photographers that by the time we were only halfway done, the boys are very cranky and we had to end the day. Hart was also really quick in sending us our chosen shots and to say they were beautiful is an understatement!

Hart was a dream to work with! All those other reviews on how good he is with children were certainly not exaggerated (if anything perhaps understated!) He really does have a lot of chemistry with children and managed to get some great shots of my usually impossible to sit still toddler. Would highly recommend him and will definitely be back. Hart was also very flexible with regards to timing and location – which was very much appreciated

6-11 Months -Sitters Baby Photography

Baby photoshoots that involve babies around 6-11 months old is fun to do.

They seem to be in 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.

Here are some images I did for this baby on their best 6-11 months old…

If you like what you see ;or you had missed your baby’s newborn shoot and would like to get something like this done for your kids, get in touch with us at 88580088 or email info@tomato.sg

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.
maternity_photos_singapore
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
newborn_photographer_sg
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
