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…

Baby Haren #3 – Newborn Baby Photography Singapore

Newborn Photography of the Haren Family

It is always a joy to be included as part of joyous moment in people’s life. Be it a birthday, wedding, or arrival of a newborn.

I have seen Fredrik and Elaine for the since 2011 to record their growing family. It all started with 1 and now baby #3. Newborn Photography is always a beautiful way to preserve memories for your little newborn so they can understand how they look like when they grow up.

Home or Studio?

For the Haren Family, all their shoots are done at their home. Most clients prefer to do the newborn photography at home for the simple fact that it is definitely more convenient for the parents. Everything the baby and mother needs is well within reach; elder siblings are also more at ease at home.

Natural Light or Flash for Newborns?

For sure, I started my career in newborn photography with natural light. However, with Singapore’s cloudy weather, unpredictable torrential rain and unknown amount of lighting conditions at clients home, I started to blend natural light with flash to achieve my newborn shots. I am so happy I am no longer at the mercy of weather when it comes to doing newborns photoshoots.

On the day of this shoot, it was dark and raining outside. It was also dark inside the house. With the combination of flash, I have the flexibility of control lighting during newborn shoots. Adding some flash in dark environment enables me to achieve the images that are becomes cleaner and crisp. Details of the image are able to withstand scrutiny even when its printed up to 50 by 80″.

What About Siblings?

As usual, while I photograph little newborns, the siblings would be running around, throwing tantrums just like any other day. I am blessed that kids love me and I love kids. I have my way with kids when it comes to photography. Things naturally fall into place and the perfect image would be captured at the right moment and right time.

What Are The Considerations?

Whilst it is important to like the style of newborn baby photography before committing to booking a newborn photographer, it is also equally important to know that your photographer have the expertise in being able to read and handle young children and newborn babies.

At the same time, be technically sound to produce the image quality of a professional that not only is beautiful on screen, it has to be able to print well.

Lastly, the newborn photographer would need to consistently deliver the whole experience of the newborn photoshoot.

The above are the top considerations that our clients are looking for while researching for a newborn photography studio.

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.

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…

Why We Shoot In Black and White

family_photos_sg
Colour Can Distract

Clothing, busy background and colour objects can take away from the moment of the photo.  The black and white images allow your brain to focus only on the main element of the photo and the emotional message is more easily conveyed as our brains become more perceptive and focused on the images core itself.  Taking away distractions gives you a focused image that is often more powerful and spectacular.

family_photography_sg

You’ll See Light Differently

With outdoor lighting in particular, you will miss out on that golden afternoon glow but you will also gain a more focused shot.  The shot will lead your eye to  focus more on the direction, quantity and quality of light in the black and white shot.  As a photographer learning how to read and play with different elements of light in this way is a fantastic skill that helps play up emotion in the shot. The relationship between the starkness of the light and dark can be more interesting to shoot than the regular colour shots.  Light and the relationship with my subject (and the shadows that form) as well as other complementary elements of the individual become the focus, rather than the colour of elements in the frame.

It Helps Emphasize Emotion

Looking at someone’s face, or into their eyes, without the distraction of color can provide a stronger emotional connection to the subject. It’s not necessarily always the case, but if like me, you often feel more connected to a person in a black and white image over a color image, this could be the reason why. With color gone, it’s purely about the connection you have with the subject.  The color of the trees and shrubs, buildings and lamp posts are all irrelevant as the focus becomes the emotional bond between the embracing family.

Its A Classic
One of the most common reasons people want to shoot in black and white today is because it lends a certain timeless quality to the images. This is because we still think of black and white as being a throwback to the photographic past. Of course, it is in terms of black and white was much more prevalent before color, but this is still a great reason to shoot black and white. Black and white never seems to fade from being fashion forward and its seen as an elegant and sophisticated choice by many of my clients.

It Amplifies Your Use of Space

Negative space – the areas of the frame that have nothing in them, are easier to showcase and highlight when shooting black and white. This relates back to minimizing distractions from not shooting in color. You tend to focus on light and dark areas of the frame – and their inter-relationship. Playing with negative space is also useful in separating your subject nicely from the background and give added depth to the image.  Black and white can help to highlight a shape and form or pattern in the image that might be overlooked in a full colour image.

To Highlight Beauty and Skin Tones

It doesn’t matter what race, color or background you happen to be – black and white photography provides wonderful tonal range between the deepest blacks and the whitest whites. Garishly colorful makeup is no longer distracting.  Pigments, discoloration and distracting elements of the skin can become less obvious. I particularly love this when I am emphasizing a newborns skin and wrinkles.  Its that light bath or glow if you like that separates the baby from everything else and proves to shape our attention directly at the newborn.
