Capturing important moments in family history requires a lot more than merely the ‘point-and-shoot’ approach using your iPhone! There’s plenty of other, more professional, options out there; from individual pics, family portraits and baby photos. We spoke to some experts to find out what it takes to capture that perfect moment.
‘Tomato Photo started in 2008, serving clientele ranging from socialites, ministers, successful entrepreneurs, CEOs; as well as private clients who are simply looking for an approachable photographer who is flexible and able to deliver what they always wanted for their family. We recently relocated to a beautiful shophouse that gives clients a unique experience by having their session taken in the total comfort of natural light, as well as outdoor shoots with beautiful Peranakan houses as the backdrop.
Tomato Photo’s sessions focus on the connection amongst the family, the individuality of every member of the family, as well as injecting lots of fun and laughter. The session feels like play time between the children and the parents and we aim to deliver natural images of those bonding moments.
At Tomato Photo our vision is creating experiences and images that put smiles on people’s faces and warm people’s heart for generations to come.’

White Room Studio
‘White Room Studio is situated in a Peranakan, black-and-white shophouse in River Valley. The space is full of nostalgic character, featuring big tall windows, Balinese furniture, wooden floorboards and a balcony overlooking the greenery of Fort Canning Park. This means not only can we shoot with studio lighting but we also make use of the bright lighting and interior of the shophouse and shoot with natural lighting. This gives us a wide spectrum of lighting, atmosphere and emotion to play with.
Being a photographer is something I couldn’t stop dreaming about until it finally became a reality. I left the Art Academy and started White Room Studio with Elaine in 2009, and have since filled my heart with the joy and fulfilment I receive in documenting the most special moments for the different families and individuals who come to the studio. I love the closeness and relationships with people, and appreciate the decision that someone makes when they choose me to be their photographer.”

Little Ones Photography
‘We capture beautiful, timeless and real photographs of people, big and small. We are well known for our newborn and child photography however we love to photograph teenagers and extended families. We work with families who have been coming back to us for years and really have become their family photographers. Kids love our down to earth, fun and natural approach. We put people at ease so they enjoy the experience and this is fundamentally the key to taking a good portrait – having a rapport with your client so they are relaxed and natural.
For us the best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed. This image (pictured) makes me smile every time remembering the fun the family had in the studio and the close bond and love they shared.’

The Studio Loft
– Maryann Koh, owner, The Studio Loft“We have had three sessions with The Studio Loft; one Bloom, one Teeny Weeny and one Little Big Shots. It’s been a great experience working with Maryann and Joanne and we are delighted with the results. Maryann has an incredible touch and patience with newborns and was able to envisage and execute some fantastic photos of our baby. It was great fun during the sessions at the studio and at our home, where we had the Bloom maternity shoot, and we would fully recommend The Studio Loft for capturing some memorable maternity and baby moments.”
