"Get the headshots your agents are going to love!"



My name is Tamara Tihanyi and I’m the photographer behind TihanyiPhoto.

I am fortunate enough to be one of the top agency recommended 

headshot photographers that specialize in children in Los Angeles. My clients work on major motion pictures, TV shows, commercials and appear in countless clothing campaigns.


I have been working in the entertainment industry for as long as I can remember. First as a commercial model, then actress and for the past 10 years as an agency referred kids headshot photographer. I also have kids in the industry, so I know a thing or two about the entertainment industry and what agents and casting directors are looking for.

I’m a perfectionist and I will always make sure that I get the best results out of you or your children. I am a true believer that a great headshot can make all the difference in someoens career. I take great pride in my work and it makes me super happy and proud seeing all my clients booking!

I can't wait to see what opportunities my headshots will create for YOU!

Headshots are your No 1. marketing tool

It's time to go pro

We all have that friend with a camera who can do it for free or for much less, so why hire a professional headshot photographer?

A great headshot is your No. 1 marketing tool that you can use to help you get requested for auditions. It's your first impression and what casting directors will see first. It is your calling card from which you will get hired from. You want it to be outstanding and to show your best possible side. If your headshot is bad, you will look bad.  As a performing artist you are a business and you need to treat it as such and invest in it to make it successful. You must have a high quality, professional headshot if you want the industry to take your seriously.

As a professional headshot photographer, who does this for a living, I have a great understanding how to use lighting to make you look your best and know exactly what agents and casting directors are looking for.

I want to get you the images that will help you stand out, be competitive and your agents will LOVE.

WHERE do you shoot?

I currently offer outdoor NATURAL LIGHT sessions on location in Los Angeles (Sherman Oaks area)

Do you offer any DISCOUNTS, specials and referrals?

Yes! LA based agencies and managers that have me on their recommended photographer list recieve my agency rates listed below. If you are not with a qualifying agent $50 will be added to the total. Clients that had a session with me in 2020 will recieve an additional $25 off if they book me again in 2021. Travel dates or any specials do not qualify for discounts. I love when my clients are so happy with their photos that they reffer their friends and family to me. As my appreciation I started a REFERRAL PROGRAM to say THANK YOU. For each person you refer who books and holds a session with me, you will get a $25 CREDIT to use towards your next session. Up to a FREE SESSION! Please email me who you referred so I can keep track! Only one person will get referral credit. New client must put you down as the person who referred them in my questionnaire.

What should I WEAR for my session?

You can check out my general guidelines on my info page and you should check out my portfolio for ideas. You will also recieve my welcome booklet with extensive wardrobe guideline via email once session is booked. You are welcome to send me your options via email and I'm happy to help you pick out the best ones prior to your session. If you prefer someone else doing the work for you, I also offer virtual wardrobe styling now where I send you links to specific outfits from different stores to purchase for your session. If you plan to opt for this, your session should be 2+ weeks in advance to make sure you recieve the outfits via mail.

When will I receive my images after the session?

It depends on how busy I am at any given time but on average it's about 7-10 business days after our photoshoot. I offer a rush delivey service as an add on option that will allow you to recive your gallery 24-48 business hours after your session.

Can I bring my own MAKE UP ARTIST to our session?

I do not work with outside hair and make up artists during our photoshoot however you are welcome to come to your photoshoot with hair and make up ready. I have a recommandation list of HMUAs that I have been working with for years and they have been extensively trained both professionally and in supporting my specific shooting style so I highly recommend that you hire one of them.

Can I bring a friend/sbiling to my session?

Please do not bring siblings, friends, family, managers etc to your shoot as it tends to be very distracting for the child being photographed. Extra people get in the way and create distractions which makes it difficult to create great photographs. Also with COVID-19 social distancing is very important during my sessions and will limit the amount of people that can be on set.

How are RETOUCHED IMAGES different from proofs?

Think of it as perfecting everything in an image and making the image pop. Removing flyaways, enhancing colors, cleaning up skin etc. All packages include a certain amount of complimentary basic retouches in TihanyiPhoto's signature style and additional ones can be purchased as an add on. I also offer advanced retouching that you can use to remove heavy acne, braces or fill in missing teeth.

Do you shoot BABIES or TODDLERS?

My minimum age range is 6 years old. With the pandemic, social distancing and masks it’s nearly impossible working with little ones. Everyone’s safety comes first and in order for me to connect with little ones I need to get close and interact with them, which is not possible at this time.

Do you shoot ADULTS?

Yes, I do. Although I specialize in kids headshots, I also shoot adult headshots.

Does COVID-19 change how you do sessions?

Yes. I am following CDC and state guidelines to ensure the safest environment for my clients. I am currently offering outdoor sessions only to make sure we can keep the 6 feet apart for social distancing. I use a long lense so I never closer then 6 feet from my clients. I also wear a mask during the session. For youth clients, only one parent or guardian will be allowed at the session, and that parent or guardian is required to be wearing a mask at all times. For adult clients, only the client being photographed will be allowed at shoot. No other guests will be allowed. Instead of taking cash payments, I will be taking remainder balance 3 days prior to session via credit card at no extra cost. Hair/makeup services are available on a referral basis only at your own risk. If you need a list of recommendation please email me. If you choose to use a makeup artist, she will be wearing a mask and as usual will be disinfecting everything thouroughly between each client.


I now offer Virtual Wardrobe Styling. The way that works is that I send you specific links from different stores for you to purchase to put the best looks together. I have a long history working with agencies and know what they are looking for so I can put looks together that will give you the most versatility. Your session should be 2+ weeks in advance to make sure you receive your outfits in time by mail. In some cases pick up in store options may be available and faster. The cost is either 35$ for the single look package and $100 for the kids agency session. The amount is due before I start the styling.
