Sharah Khandaker


“The photos looked great! The perfect Mother’s Day gift.”

Rebecca Henney


“We knew we didn’t want the traditional stiff upper lip family portrait or photos that didn’t feel like a family photo. Tom captured a real truth and depth to our photos which gave it a beautiful and unique quality. We now have stunning portraits that are original and truly ours! Tom is an artist and a pleasure to have photograph you. He creates beautiful photos you’ll want to show everyone – even if it means working with sleepy five month old and rain on an outdoor photo shoot!”

Linda Taylor


“I would have no hesitation in recommending Tom as a fabulous photographer. Not only do his photographs look beautiful, he really captured something about the personality of each of our three children. He had a lovely gentle manner with the kids, worked so hard and we’re thrilled with the results.”

Ellie Beaumont and Tim Power


“We absolutely love the photos that you took of us!  Louis looks beautiful. I really enjoyed the photo shoot. We appreciated your guidance on what would look good and also your willingness to try out different things. It was a fun afternoon, and we are proud to show people the end result, so thank you!”

Tom Morgan and Sarah Woods


“I am thrilled with the photos that Tom took of my two young children − a 2.5 year old and a one year old are not necessarily cooperative subjects. Tom and his colleague, came to the photo shoot armed with props (funny hats and finger puppets) which made them laugh and feel at ease, capturing their natural smiles and making a wonderful gift for my family.”

Catriona Halliday


“Tom really captured our two boys – his photos will be a perfect of record of them. He set them against an imaginative rocky background and the light brought out the best qualities. The photos look great in both black and white, and colour.”

Josh Le Vay


“The portrait session was a fantastic experience. A family friend has taken some pictures for us since then but I never regained the feeling of freedom and self-discovering I enjoyed during the ‘Ingrid-belly’ session. We can never be grateful enough. All the feelings I wanted to remember are now in black and white forever.

Ingrid will always know how loved she is, how much she meant for us since she was a little heartbeat. Call it photography if you want. For me it’s pure magic.”

Gabriela Factor


“Tom took amazing photos of our family, creatively working with all the changes in mood that very young children can present to capture truly unique images that reflect who we are. We love them!”

Sarah Gleave and Nick Tan


“Tom was quickly able to put the children at ease, encouraging them to express themselves in their own environment. As a result of this, together with his technical skill, the photographs we now have are rich natural portraits of our children at a distinct time and place in their young lives.”

Annabel McGilvray


“Tom made the photo session very relaxed and easy, which isn’t always the case with two small children. We love our photos.”

Rachel and Pat Garcia


“Tom came to our home and took some wonderful photos of Arlo and the three of us as a family. He captured Arlo at his smiling best and all of us relaxed and enjoying being together. He was tremendously patient and gentle in his approach. We are delighted with the final pictures which are being sent out far and wide to family and friends.”

Kate Bandler and Todd Ritter, Marrickville


“With a newborn it was wonderful to have Tom come to our house. He was flexible and made the session enjoyable for our two year old. We’re delighted with our photos.”

Jessica Cooper, St Ives


“We would highly recommend Tom Greenwood to any family wishing to obtain high quality candid and portrait shots of their children. We are delighted with the photos Tom took of our two boys: a 2 year old and a 4 month old. We love the framed prints on our wall.

Tom was incredibly personable and easy going which made the boys feel at ease and relax in front of the camera. He was patient with the boys and worked really hard to capture their smiles and personalities. We couldn’t be happier!”

Michael & Louise Jones, Annandale


“We love the photos Tom took. He really captured the spirit of our children. The kids had loads of fun too.”

Michele Mordaunt-Buksh, Paddington


“My young adult family and I spent an enjoyable afternoon with Tom getting some long overdue family portraits taken. Tom’s relaxed and warm manner created a comfortable atmosphere and as a result we now have many great photos of both the family and individuals. Coordinating 5 adults to be at one place at the one time takes a lot of organising, however, Tom was very accommodating to work in with the family’s schedule. Now comes the hard part; which photos do we enlarge, print and frame ??????? Too many choices!”

Grace Muscat


My 20 month old son and I recently had a photo session with Tom, which we both thoroughly enjoyed. He created a very relaxing atmosphere that you’d almost forget he was there. We are very happy with the photos that Tom took of my son, and I, and he promptly processed them and forwarded us a disc. I would highly recommend Tom for a photo session with your loved ones.”

Audrey Krause


“Tom was fantastic with our 7 month old who was definitely a little skeptical at first! His warm, calming nature soon made her feel quite at home and the result was spectacular – the photos are amazing and completely priceless. We have them blown up all over our house and they were fantastic Christmas presents for the grandparents! Tom really captured our baby girl’s beautiful personality – we will definitely make this a yearly visit to ensure we will always have captured a permanent picture of our kids growing up – thank you Tom!”

Nicole Wain


This was our first Professional photo shoot with our kid and we loved the way Tom went about it. Made it very comfortable for us and took some awesome snaps . Highly Recommended to anyone for any professional shoot .”

Muralikrishna Munukoti


Tom did a great job photographing our little one year old Michael, who was a bit tired and not that keen on smiling. But Tom was very patient and spent a lot of time trying different things. We are very happy with our photos and everyone who sees them comments how professional they are and how great we look! Highly recommend him :)”

Matthew Pejkovic


“We were thrilled with the number and quality of photos from our portrait session, especially as our expectations were dampened by a less than cooperative two year old. Tom’s patience and skill gave us some great results which we and our family now treasure. I’m happy to recommend Tom.”

John Bailey


“Tom has photographed my family twice now and we have been very pleased with the results. Our last session was quite stressful for me and my husband with a tantrumming toddler and a baby. Tom remained calm and patient and tried numerous techniques to distract my children. He is a fantastic photographer as well as an approachable down to earth person making him perfect for any event…especially if kids are involved! My husband also uses Tom now for his professional corporate photos and once again has been very happy with the results. Thank you Tom!”

Clare Daley


“I had a family photo session with Tom twice and both times it was a great experience. Tom is an amazing photographer as well as really nice person. I highly recommend his services!!! You will not be disappointed!!!”

Elektra Hajdu


“Have had the pleasure of Tom taking my prenancy, bub’s newborn and also our family photos. Love the beautiful, clean, crisp style of photos. Highly recommend.”

Jenny Lee


“We had a family portrait session with Tom in November 2014 at his Lilyfield studio. He was professional, great to communicate and coordinate with, very patient with our 3 month old daughter and easy to work with on the day of the photo shoot itself. We received a wide variety of photos in a variety of formats and poses. We were also very happy with his method of delivery – via USB, as this allowed us to select a number of photos for development and enlargement as Christmas gifts and for our home. The photos on the USB were delivered very promptly and were edited to an excellent quality. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Tom’s services again or recommend him to others.”

Nicole Tan


“We had a family photo session with Tom and found him very personable and professional. Our kids were a bit unruly but he wasn’t fazed at all! The photos were lovely and delivered very promptly.”

Alarna Carlsson


“We had a photographic session bought for us as a family Christmas present last year with Sydney Portraits. We booked this in for June 2014 with Tom and had a fantastic day on Freshwater Beach. The weather was amazing and Tom made us feel relaxed. He produced high quality pictures on a CD which was presented in a beautiful box. We would highly recommend Tom.”

Sarah Apthorpe


“We have used Tom at Sydney Portraits twice now, the first time for some photos of our newborn in the studio, and the second time for some family photos on the beach. Both times Tom was extremely good at getting us relaxed and having fun. He was also very patient with our child, even when she decided to take a nap half way through the shoot! We loved all the photos and would definitely recommend him any time. We will be calling him again in the future for our next set of family pictures!”

Miia Barrow


“Our photo session with Tom was such a memorable experience. We were greeted with a lovely warm smile and welcome into Tom’s home. Tom had such a great way with Kara and she was so relaxed and happy for the sitting, we have such beautiful photos that we will treasure forever. Each photo is truly artistic, beautiful and captures these special moments that otherwise pass too quickly! Thank you Tom!”

Sean & Jaya McBride


“For our 1.5h photo session, we requested studio shots, a cake smash, and outdoor photos which were in a local park . It was all well timed, and we were happy with how accommodating Tom was. Our 1 year old responded well to Tom’s calm patient manner and his soft toy collection. We were particularly impressed with his attention to detail, the cake smash photos, and actually capturing all the moments. We would do our next family photos with him.”

James and Debra Huynh


“My partner and I took some pre-wedding shots with Tom last month. Not having done this before, Tom had great patience and made us feel comfortable throughout our session. We were able to use some very natural shots for our wedding and we would definitely recommend him to our friends.”

Steven Wu


“Tom was awesome, made us feel at home, loved the new studio space and the pics of the kids turned out amazing. Thanks Tom!”

Kerrie Macalister


“We had a family photo session with Tom at Sydney Portraits. He took fantastic photos of our 6 month old and chose a great location to shoot at. The photos were all provided on a USB stick within two weeks as we expected. Both colour and B/W images were provided in both a viewing and print format. We highly recommend his services.”

Amalan Mahalingam


“Tom is very professional and made us feel very comfortable on the day. We love our new family pictures.”

Michael Nakhle


“Tom has been very patient especially with my children. The photos are great!”

Man Yuk Ho


“We contacted Sydney Portraits (Tom) to take some family portraits after a previous bad experience. Tom took the time in advance of our photography session to understand what we styles we liked and were looking to achieve from our studio shoot. As a result we have some amazing photos of our family which get commented on all the time. My 12 month old was a little bit difficult at times, however this did not impact our photos. We selected the USB package which arrived quickly. We would recommend Sydney Portraits and will use Tom again, when we would like to update our family portraits.”
