My name is Tamara Tihanyi and I’m the photographer behind TihanyiPhoto.
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 am referred by the top children’s agencies and have a great understanding what these 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 your children. I take great pride in my work and it makes me super happy and proud seeing all my little clients booking!
My clients work on major motion pictures, TV shows, commercials and appeared in countless clothing campaigns, such as Hugo Boss, GAP, Old Navy, Guess, Nordstrom, Target, Abercrombie Kids, Disney, Tea Collection, JC Penney and Garnet Hill. Just to name a few!
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are your RATES and how do I book a session with you?
WHERE do you shoot?

Yes! LA based agencies and managers that have me on their recommended photographer list recieve $50 off my sessions. The prices listed below represent the agency rates with the agency discount already included. If you are not with a qualifying agent $50 will be added to the total.
What should I WEAR for my session?
You can check out my general guidelines on my info page HERE. You will also recieve an extensive wardrobe guideline via email once session is booked and I offer complimentary styling out of the outfits you send me via email. If you need additional help i also offer virtual wardrobe styling where i send you links to specific outfits from different stores to purchase for your session. Your session must be 3+ 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.
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 and toddlers?
I shoot kids from 6 months old or when they can sit up unassisted.
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.
Do you need WARDROBE STYLING?
