Outdoor Family Photography at Botanic Garden with Fagan’s family

It was a lovely morning with beautiful light at Botanic Gardens when we have the session with Lorraine and family…

My vision in photography is to capture the individuality of the people and the connection in their family. So every session is unique as there are no 2 families are the same and no 2 people in this world behave the same.

We have a very happy and fun family with a little boy who loves his ball and bubbles….

I hope you like them as much as I do…





Late evening at East Coast Park with Claudie & Adrian – Family Photography Singapore

I think it is time for me to update my blogs as I have been neglecting it… I will do my best to update my experience in capturing memories for my clients and why I like the particular images.

As much as I love to, I can’t post every single shoot as much as each shoot is different from others…

Anyway, here is a session I did in End of July. We did the session in late afternoon at East Coast Park. My favorite location for session as it is relax, breezy and also offers perfect setting for family portrait, beach, greenery, big trees, open space, etc.

Claudie contacted me for a family session and warn me that it is very difficult to get the smiling shots of her daughter… but on the contrary, I thought it was relatively easy… The trick to make a child love is very simple… play with them and be genuine. I prefer natural looking smile and my vision is to capture the beautiful side of my subject so they remember when they grow up.

Claudie and Adrian was thrilled with the results and send me the testimonial via email that reads:

Our inquiry to Hart for some family shots has been a bit of a last minute one I have to admit, as we thought this could be a great birthday present to Nan, while my parents in law were visiting us in Singapore (and were close to departure).

It probably might not have been the usual way Hart worked, as he explained to us he would usually try to take the time to get to know a bit more his customers, especially  the younger ones, in order they can warm to him and feel more comfortable in front of the camera, still he managed to win our daughters with his friendly way and sense of humour in no time.

I think the smile on Eloise’s face definitely shows that she enjoyed the session as much as we did. Actually, Hart,  you did manage almost the impossible : making her smile in front of the camera is a challenge, and, you passed it easily ;-).

We are very delighted with all the photos, they look natural and spontaneous. They capture us as we are, nothing less, however with a caring eye for details more. You can tell Hart loves his works and it perspires through his photos.  Many many thanks again for wonderful life time memories. Claudie and Adrian “

As much as I love my life as a photographer, client’s kind words reinforce my belief in preserving memories for my clients….

Here are some images taken on the day.

Colorful and Fun Children Photography Session at home….

Kate contacted me and wanted me to come over to their house to do some shots for the family and their 3 children Sarah, James and Isabelle.

I had lots of fun capturing the kids while them playing. I love capturing kids being kids and as little interruption as possible from me for the real moment and meaningful images for them to remember as they grow.

I am glad Kate and Dave love the shots… and I am glad that the family are happy for me to share their images…

Family Photography Singapore – The Morris

As a portrait photographer, I would like to think a good image is a reflection of mutual understanding and trust between photographer and subject, so it is a privilege to be able to record and preserve memories of a child as they grow.

I am very fortunate to have clients who are coming back year after year for the same reason… preserving memories as a family and as the child grow…

I recently receive a testimonial from Kavita (Elijah’s mom) and I know these are kind words which makes every late nights spend working on images for clients feels easier and enjoyable:

Hart has done an amazing job of capturing our family photographs over the past few years.  We first worked with Hart for our maternity shots, and since then he has captured newborn photos, birthday parties and toddler pictures for our family.  He truly is a master at capturing the emotion and the beauty of the images in a way no other photographer that we have worked with is able to.   His calmness and kind personality also makes him a hit with not only us, but with my son.  The entire photoshoot process and selecting pictures is hassle and stress-free, as well.  We are so grateful to have a collection of beautiful photos- to not only share with our family and friends back in the US- but to also to look at with such joy.   Thanks Hart, you’re the best! – Kavita & Jason Morris

Here is the very small collection of images of Elijah since the newborn shoot some 2+ years ago…

Take care and good nite.

Family Portrait Photography – Ashley, Vincent and Charlotte

Hello all,

March was a very busy month and I have an opportunity to capture some images for a gorgeous family of 3…

Charlotte arrive as a shy little girl who hides behind mommy… after a good 15 minutes of warming up, her smile is simply make my day.

The shoot was relatively short and only lasted 30-40 minutes but there are so many shots that I love, I will feature just some of them here…

It is always nice to hear from clients on their experience in using Tomato Photo’s service… and here is the email I receive from Ashley…

Hi Hart,

You have captured the sweetest moment of us especially Charlotte. These are the moment which will be never repeated but you’ve managed to capture and make it the best memories for us.

Simply love the way you photographed because we feel there is a meaning behind every photo, a story to tell everyone.

Your photos are indeed the best present we can give our girl as her 1st birthday present, a memory that were never fade away.

A BIG Thank You for the beautiful memories.

Best Regards,

Vincent & Ashley
