Photographer Tamara Tihanyi from TihanyiPhoto


My name is Tamara Tihanyi and I’m the photographer behind Tihanyi Photography. Thank you for your interest in shooting with me. 

Getting great pictures is the most important thing you can do to help your child get requested for auditions and when you book me, you can rest assured that you will get the best possible results. 

I am referred by the top children’s agencies and I know what the 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! Some of the companies my clients have booked straight off their photos (without having to go to an audition) are Hugo Boss, GAP, Old Navy, Guess, Nordstrom, Target, Abercrombie Kids, Disney, Tea Collection, JC Penney and Garnet Hill, just to name a few!

Look forward to working with you!

Frequently asked questions

What are your RATES and how do I book a session with you?

You can review my packages and book your session right thru my website at https://www.tihanyiphoto.com/packages-and-prices or just click HERE. Just pick out the package that you would like and my available dates will come up and you can reserve your session right thru there.

Where do you shoot?

I offer NATURAL LIGHT sessions on location outdoors in West Hollywood by LACMA. I also offer STUDIO HEADSHOT SESSIONS and OUTDOOR natural light modeling photos in and around my home studio in Valencia, Santa Clarita.

Do you offer any DISCOUNTS?

Yes! Agencies and managers that have me on their recommended photographer list recieve $50 off my FULL sessions. Also clients that had a session with me in 2019 will recieve an additional $25 discount from ANY regular session if they book me again in 2020. Travel dates or any specials do not qualify for discounts. Returning clients also qualify to book a single look session for only $150 within 6 months from their original session date.

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 help via email.

When will I receive my images after the session?

Photo galleries are ready 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?

Simply, no. I do not recommend bringing 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. Please note that at my home studio in Santa Clarita there is a strict one parent per child policy as it's a very small space and I utilize every square inch of it for your shoot. If you must bring additional sibling, make sure that you only book at my outdoor location in LA by LACMA.

Should I book a STUDIO or OUTDOOR session?

I highly recommend that you talk to your representation and ask them which they prefer before you book a session with me as the two styles are very different. You can check out the examples of both in my portfolio. Please note that I only offer headshot sessions in studio, if you need full body shots for modeling those will be shot outdoors.

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, toddlers or twins?

I no longer shoot kids that are 3 years old or younger. 4 and up only. If you have twins and you need shots together they must be 6 years old or older.



"I recently used Tihanyi Photography for my daughter’s headshots.  I could not be more thrilled with our entire experience.  Tamara was excellent at communicating all information needed to be prepared for a successful shoot.  We arrived the day of the shoot and Tamara was so warm and welcoming.  She made the shoot so much FUN for my daughter, as it should be!  Tamara also brought along a make up and hair stylist, as I had requested – and she too was absolutely top notch!  By the end of our shoot, it truly felt like we were working with a friend, as Tamara was so EASY to work with.  The turn around for our proofs was quick and getting the photos was the best part, as we were blown away with the results! Tamara had captured my daughter perfectly! Our manager and agent were equally thrilled, and had a hard time helping us to narrow down ALL the great choices!  We won’t be needing more headshots for my daughter anytime soon (because these are so perfect), but when we do, Tihanyi Photography is now our go to headshot photographer!
