Home Family Portrait Photography with MacFarlan

It was my birthday and I am shooting 4 shoots in 1 day on extremely painful feet  isn’t a life of a photographer that I am envisioned.

It is an obsession and perhaps addiction to the act of preserving memories for others. Always enjoy every second when I am out and about.

Anyway…

Another beautiful session for Macfarlan whom I have the privilege to see the kiddo grow up from little newborn…

Arrive on the day, being told Jay, the elder boy was in the bad mood and they have contractors coming in an hour… no pressure!!!

I love the space and I love the lights and all I need to do is to take away the computer and miraculously make everyone smiling naturally in front of the camera.

I always remember vividly when my little boy was cruising below the dining table and I always love those moments and here I find the perfect place and light and perfect smile…

At the end of the day… client’s kind words strengthen my belief in memories preservation. It is the best gift I could receive for my birthday…

Hi Hart,

These are great photos!  Love them!  Thanks so much! – Mamiko

Best Location – Home – Family Photo Shoot Singapore

Great images for your family photography session often happen right at your home.

Client usually worry that their home isn’t suitable for the session… I started my career as Interior Photographer and I have photographed thousands of homes and the aim is to make the space looks beautiful as possible. Naturally, I understand how to get the best angle for your home.

It is the essence of a person that I portray in my quest to preserve memories for my clients. Our physical outlook will change by time, but the essence of who we are remains… So it you wonder why my picture looks different… what you are looking at is the person based on my interpretation.

As a Master Photographer, I get 95% of what I need in the camera, leaving 5% of work in photoshop. Children often scratch their face, bump on their head, dirt on the shirt, etc… these are the 5% that I do in editing process. As I manage the shoot to edit to archival myself, there is a continuity and consistency for every single shoot.

I have photographed Melanie & family for many times over the years.

The challenge was to tell a story for this little girl and capture who she is, her “position” in the family… but of course, getting the tweens to smile naturally… last but not least, beautiful family photography right at their home.

 

 

I will guide your family through the whole process so you know you always get the best from each shoot.

Like to do one for your family too? contact us today.

Family Shoot at Marina Bay – Indoor & Outdoor

One of the beauty of having the family portrait shoot done at Marina Bay is the appeal of the beautiful Marina Bay area with the ultra modern cityscape, The urban look to the image as well as the comfort of aircon inside the mall. This give you the outdoor and indoor in the same location.

It was Christmas and there are lots of amazing display and light but even without the festive, Marina Bay looks amazing…

This is the second shoot with Joanne’s family and it was a very relaxing and fun experience…

As a photographer, we also need to conduct ourselves in a manner that don’t cause much public nuisance so we make the work of security guard a lot easier… respect others and others will do the same.

Give us a call 8858 0088 and have a chat to see what we can help your family in getting the best images…

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

Maximizing your Photo Shoot Investment!

Its all about albums in this blog.  Lets explain why this is the best way to maximize your photos visibility and enjoyment.  So many clients carefully consider the shoot, the outfits, the poses and styles that they want to achieve from their family photo-shoot.  But many forget the most important aspect of any photo-shoot – THE PHOTOS!

Most feel that getting photos put onto a USB drive or CD is the best option for them.  But realistically how often would you insert your USB, sit down with a  cup of coffee and scroll through your photos?  We all have the best intentions but it seems we never have time.

After talking to many clients and having my own family photographs it seems that the most viewed images are those printed into family photo albums.  Why you ask? It’s simple, its all about access.  Photo albums sit around on coffee tables, within easy reach of a book shelf or cabinet.  Guests visiting your home can easily flip through the album while waiting on that cup of offered tea.  Photo albums are a discussion point and a reason to sit around and discuss memories and share laughs with your loved ones.

Photo albums can also be so easily organized.  Each album contains one photo shoot, a moment in time captured for ever.  Have say, five photo albums each covering an important life event makes it so easy for the family to reflect and bond over shared experiences.

Tomato Photo offers amazing album options to suit every desire and budget.  We offer our clients plenty of input into the design and layout of the album so that you can put your families personal touches into it.  Choose the images that you like and the layout that suits and you have the perfect discussion piece for your home.  Printed photo albums are not just for weddings, they should be used for every milestone in ones life.
