Family Photoshoot at Home

“Thank you, Hart, once again for the lovely photos! We have been photographing with Hart since my boys were toddlers and they’re now teenagers! His service has always been consistent and the quality of the final result truly unparalleled.

I’ve always looked forward to receiving my proofs cos I know he never disappoints. Hart is as good with kids as he is with everyone of all ages.

Patient and personable, friendly and flexible, Hart never fails to put his subjects at ease and every session is loads of fun for everyone! More than a decade ago, he was able to capture my toddler boys (not exactly the easiest of subjects) at their best and more than 10 years on, he continues to work his magic with them as teens (still not the easiest of subjects!) together with their little sister.

We have tried other photographers over the years but absolutely none have come anywhere close to capturing everyone in their truest and most natural element.

Hart is truly in a league of his own and I would strongly recommend anyone looking to get family photos to seek him out. Hart isn’t just talented, he is truly passionate about his art. His results speak for themselves – absolutely stunning images of precious moments in time. I cannot recommend him enough.”

Multi Generation Photo Shoot

Review by Jing Wen

Family Portrait with 4 kids & a dog.

“We just had our 3rd shoot with Hart (4th if counting the one he did of Thomas) and the photos are gorgeous. such a lovely update to the existing canvases we have of our kids which were also taken by Hart few years ago. With 2 new additions to the family now (another baby and a dog) we wanted to update our family photos by doing a shoot with Hart to document the changes since our last shoot with tomato photo in 2015.

At the shoot yesterday we had 3 overly-excited older kids, 1 squalling baby who cried nonstop and an unruly pet dog who was rushing around everywhere. The situation could have been really chaotic but Hart remained unflappable and was incredibly patient. He established good rapport with the kids immediately and even my dog who normally barks nonstop at all strangers went straight to Hart for a pat.

The individual portraits of the kids are wonderful, their expressions are so genuine. i love the group photos of them too, especially the ones where Hart asked the older kids to pretend to be the baby and cry along. The resulting photos are so candid and really in the moment.

Highly recommend Hart as the best family photographer we’ve ever had! Also like to add that the email correspondence with Hazel was always prompt and clear, which was a pleasure”

Family Portrait With 4 Boys

“We had a wonderful experience doing family photos with Hart. He immediately developed rapport with our four boys and put them (and is) at ease. He made the photo session fast, fun and completely painless. On top of that he had the proofs from the session to us in a matter of hours! We could not be happier with both the session and the photos – we highly recommend Hart and will be using him again.”

Generation Family Portrait At Home With Ages 2 to 98

“There were about 20 of us. Ages spanned from 98 to 2, members of the family who wanted to play photographer, children who did not want to smile for the camera and tired members of the family from travelling. Yet, Hart took it all in his stride. He was easy going, warm and made everyone feel right at home. He took great natural shots of all of us and we absolutely love love love the photos.”

We had a very refreshing family photo shoot experience at Tomato Photo Studio on 21 January 2024. Hart was very creative, energetic and lively making my two young granddaughters very much at home. The photographic images turned out very natural and reflected well the mood. Thanks Hart and Hazel as well for providing the helpful information.

Hart of Tomato Studio is a superb family photographer. The moment our family met Hart for our session, we immediately felt at ease with his endearing smile and gentle disposition. He guided us throughout the whole session, using subtle gestures and pointers on how to stand and pose as naturally as possible. We had two attire changes (formal and casual) and did permutations of individual, group and various paired shots. The entire experience was seamless and the whole session was done in slightly over an hour. Hart is a true professional and we are extremely delighted with the resulting photos, sweet memories that we will share and cherish as a family, for many years to come. We will definitely recommend Hart to anyone who wishes to have a family photo shoot for any occasion.

Hart was fantastic! He managed to put my parents at ease and captured their beautiful smiles and all! We had so much fun at the studio and Hart played along - everyone was all praise! Even my ordinarily not so expressive husband had fun! Needless to say, the pictures came out authentically beautiful, and showed our laughters and joy. Thank you so much Hart! Your craft and professionalism - unparalleled. Our experience - priceless. #CTGratitude

Wonderful experience. We did an extended family shot with Hart. He is a wonder with the kids , all nine of them. Parents can just relax and let him work his magic touch. Obviously very experienced photographer with big extended families shots. Highly recommended.

A very cosy and well equipped studio. The whole family was made to feel at home before the 2 hrs photo shoot. Mr Hart was very competent and extremely professional during the session. He put all of us at ease and gives good tips for us to pose correctly. Thank you.

Our experience with photographer Hart from was nothing short of exceptional! The booking process, led by Hazel, was not only smooth but also showed a personal touch with warm congratulations on our newborn. Hazel's attention to detail and awareness of our situation was impressive. On the day of the shoot, Hart's magical touch with babies immediately won us over. He took the time to understand our baby, ensuring the session resulted in the best possible outcomes. We highly recommend for capturing precious moments with professionalism and a personal touch.

Tomato Photo and Hart were very helpful in advising on the photography session and products we would like to purchase. It was a newborn photography for my son. It was pouring and Hart shared that the carpark is not sheltered and advised us to drop off at the pick up point. He offered to lend us an umbrella if we don’t have one to cross the unsheltered carpark to the main building. It’s very heartening for Hart to think about the wellbeing of us and my son. Hart is very experienced in dealing with newborns. My less-than-2 week old son was so comfortable through the 1.5hr session and the pictures taken were able to be taken without any hiccups. The end products were simply breathtaking. Certainly will go back again and will recommend to others!

As we stepped into Tomato Studio, we were welcomed by Photograper Harto's warm and friendly smile. His studio has a living cozy space with snacks, coffee/tea and some boxes of toys which helped kept my two younger nepbews occupied and entertained while they were not required in certain shoots. Harto was able to capture everyone's attention including the four year old nephew. He was just looking into the camera and smiling all the time. No effort was needed or required from family (and this is also the request of Harto, just leave it to him) we call him the child whisperee lol. The whole oredering process was smooth and simple. There os no hard selling (what we really liked) and he will even do a suggested album upon request. Truth is there were like 250 pics after the 1 plus hour session, and it was hard to choose. His professional choices and mocked up album helped us a lot. After all the processing, Harto did a personal delivery to my parent's place which added another personal touch. We want to thank Harto and tomato Photo for the wonderful experience. Our family all enjoyed ourselves very much, and it feels very natural and not stressful, it was not a hurried take and get off session. It was truly a fun and enjoyable.

Family Portrait – Home & Outdoors

“Have done 8 family shoots with Hart over the years and his pictures never fail to bring a smile to our faces. My children call him Uncle Tomato endearingly and say he is the best! Our latest outing was completed in less than 20 mins, but with amazing output. Thank you Hart and keep spreading joy with this gift that you have!”

Extended Family Portrait & Newborn Photoshoot

“It’s the third time I’ve engaged Hart for his professional service. First two was for my family photoshoot with my parents and siblings which included a total of 10 people (young to old). Hart was able to manage the crowd well and the pictures turned out amazing.

Because he is so good at what he does, I have also engaged Hart for my recent newborn photoshoot. He handled my little one really well (my baby felt really comfortable) and the shoot was a breeze.

I had also received the pictures taken within the same day. The turnaround time and responsiveness of Hart is definitely commendable. In summary, if you’re looking for a photographer who produces good quality photos, is responsive and professional, Hart’s the right choice!”

Family Portrait

“Over the years, I’ve worked with Photographers from the MPA and I’ve also heard a lot about Hart, but I never took the plunge till this year and I’ve not regretted my decision. Hart is everything everyone has said about him. Genuine, great with kids, a master in his own rights.

From enquiry to the shoot, everything was professional. Hart has a cosy studio and he gave the kids more than enough time to warm up. Unlike other studio sessions, a session with Hart feels more like a catch up. He puts everyone at ease while he captures the most precious and beautiful moments and interactions. The results left me in awe.

Post-shoot, Hart works quickly to get the pictures to us and is at hand to advise on the best way to present the photos. I have never felt compelled to write a review, but, I made an exception for Hart because when I looked at the pictures, I asked myself why I did not engage him earlier? Thank you Hart for capturing those precious moments 🙂

Extended Family Portrait with babies, toddlers & kids. 

“This was our second photoshoot with Hart and he was as amazing as we remembered from the first time. Thank you so much!

Both times our shoot was a 3-generation shoot. He is a natural baby whisperer and definitely has his way to handle toddlers/kids – so when Hart asks you to leave it to him, please do! Hart is a very professional and patient photographer. He took the time to understand and connect with us all before shooting. Love the output that came out and will definitely be back again!!!

Home Newborn Photography Photo Shoot

Reviews by Faith Chan 

“Had our newborn shoot done by Hart on rather last minute date fixing as my baby was overdue by 1 week which was close to Hart‘s overseas trip. However, Hart was kind to accommodate to our last minute request to come to our place before his trip.

Hart is friendly and nice to work with. He is good in handling newborns and puts us at ease when we see our baby comfortable and smiling even during photoshoot. He managed to capture our baby smiling and quickly took a video of it and was kind to send us for keep sake without any extra charge.

When it comes to us taking photos with our newborn, Hart gave advise on what outfit looks better. Also, he guides us patiently how to pose and we totally enjoyed the whole photoshoot session.

All the photos turn out very nice and natural…truly capturing all the natural feel and look of our newborn which is priceless! When it comes to selecting photos for print, Hart was patient in attending to my queries and giving me advise on the photo selection.

There is a personal touch from Hart which you have to engage his service and you’ll know it.

Having the skills and a nice personality to work with, I would strongly recommend Hart to any parents looking for newborn photography or even family photoshoot which I’m confident Hart will do very well too!”

Home Newborn Photography Photo Shoot

Reviews by Louise O’Shea

We had an amazing experience with Hart and he is truly gifted with newborns.

Hart put both us as parents and our baby at ease. It was such a relaxed experience, he even gave us new parents some amazing parenting advice at no extra charge lol!

Our photos were beautiful and exactly what we wanted, they didn’t appear staged and he captured so many different expressions of our baby that it’s hard to believe he was only 7days old at the time

The fact that we were able to do our shoot in on our own home was fantastic as trying to get anywhere on time with a newborn is a struggle and Hart just took the hassle out of everything for us!

We would highly recommend Hart and Tomato photo to anyone looking to do a newborn shoot.

Thank you for everything Hart!”

“My siblings and I gifted our Mom with a tomato photo photoshoot package for her 60th birthday, and boy are we glad we did.

Hart was a joy to have as our photographer. He managed to capture our tri-generation family perfectly, and rolled with all the punches my 2-year old nephew threw (both literally and metaphorically).

The photos turned out lovely, and I certainly recommend Hart’s services to any family looking to have a laidback and enjoyable photoshoot to capture your memories together.”

Reviews by Jonathan Lee

My family used Hart for family photography when our second child was born.

The quality of pictures and Hart’s manner are fantastic and made for a very enjoyable experience. We just got the blown up prints of our shots and couldn’t be happier.

Hart himself was very enjoyable to work with. And when we had a few things come up that we requested and I personally felt was probably out of his scope of work, he was more than happy to oblige.

Very satisfied!”

Family Photo Shoot at Emerald Hill

Reviews by Katie Malder Zoldak

Tomato photo handled the entire process from my initial inquiry to receiving our proofs flawlessly.

They are very prompt in responding to every question and understanding your wishes in the outcome of the entire process.

Hart is a master at what he does and he makes it look so easy. I have a 3 and 5 year old and the entire photo shoot he was able to easily bring out their natural smiles and happiness.

I couldn’t recommend Tomato Photo enough! Wonderful experience and beautiful life long images for us to treasure! Thank you, Hart and Tomato Photo!!

“How do you think he does it, I don’t know” We were really impressed with his ability to get our children to sit still long enough to take 212 beautiful shots. We highly recommend Hart to anyone.

Family Photography Shoot in Studio

Reviews by Erica Latham

“We’ve just completed our fourth shoot with Hart, starting in 2012 & 2014 with home newborn shoots, and since then two family shoots, our last one Feb 2018.

I can’t recommend Hart enough, he is so patient and fun with the newborns and/or young kids. Even when we’re struggling to make the kids smile he makes a funny noise and suddenly they’re beaming!

I’ve been thrilled with the results of each shoot but this latest one was a challenge.

I had been extremely disappointed with a photographer in the UK and I asked Hart if he could recreate some of the shots that I had been hoping for, I sent over around 12 example pics. Needless to say I got every single shot and they were stunning but I was more impressed with the pics not on my list – he’s such a pro.

Don’t hesitate, book.”

Reviews by Kate Laya

“Just completed our third family shoot with Hart. We’ll be back again next time.

Hart is amazing with the kids – fun, patient and getting the best from them – and somehow manages to make the tense nervous adults relax too.

The pictures are always beautiful, happy shots which capture our girls’ personalities.

Service is always seamless and timely.”

Family Photo Shoot in Studio

Reviews by Fiza Fariheen

“Just recently completed a Black & White Charity Mini Shoot (our 1st experience) & Hart was great with the kids just like almost every review had testified.

Our kids were 2, 4 & 6 and Hart took time to play games, chat & got to know them which made them relaxed, calm & the photos was everything we could have asked for.

Made for classic sentiments & beautiful memories. Thank you & we look forward to hanging those beautiful photographs up in our home.”
