I have been fortunate enough to work with Eric Gray 3 times over the past year... Each photo shoot was completely different from the previous- and each shoot he was able to capture phenomenal pictures that were all breathtaking and "hang-on-the-wall" worthy! He is so professional- and fun to work with- flexible, creative and trustworthy. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needed professional photography whether for business or personal images.

I came across Shannon's Photography on Facebook. She has done a beautiful job capturing special moments in my life. First my maternity shoot and then my son's newborn photos. She's great at what she does. She's a true professional, personable, reliable and willing to accommodate her customers. I highly recommend her.

    Rona does an amazing job! I am a little bit picture obsessed. I love have a snapshot of my family frozen in time and Rona captures those special memories perfectly. I have trusted her to take 1st birthday pictures of my baby, pictures of my oldest two together, my son's senior pictures, my son's cap and gown pictures and also his head shots for college auditions. She has taken family photos and my step-daughter's senior pictures. I have trusted her with some of the most important moments of our lives and she has surpassed my expectations every time! Rona takes her time and makes the experience fun for everyone involved. It is so important to her that each client gets what they want out of the session and it shows!

          I cannot express how much we loved working with Shelley!! The pictures turned out beautiful!! We looked at several photographers but Shelley was extremely reasonable priced, worked with us in terms of dates we were available, and asked questions about what we wanted in capturing in our memories! She was attentive to every detail. We absolutely love each and every picture! We loved working with Shelley so much we used her for our gender reveal, baby shower, maternity, and newborn session! We will be using her for all of our photography needs! You won't be disappointed!

            Ralph met us at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens for a family portrait session. He took a variety of pictures, poses, and scenes and his suggestions were unique, creative, and turned out wonderfully! The special creative touches he added to the photographs made them even more beautiful. We highly recommend Ralph for any of your photography needs and will surely use him again in the future!

            I've had years of photographic experiences with Ted Tucker. He has an eye for the beautiful and unusual that is rare in most photography. He is a delight to work with---relaxed but always professional. In his portrait photography, he captures the essence of his subject by making them feel at ease. His landscape and event photography is head and shoulders above average work. Ted enjoys what he does, and his work reflects that.

            About

            I firmly believe that photography is an art to be studied and mastered over a lifetime, not a "make extra money on the side" hustle. I am educated and experienced. My work is not filled with "instagram" resembling filters nor overly photoshopped work. I am a true color and deep black and white traditionalist who wants your work to look amazing straight out of the camera. I work and strive to be the best and I give my clients 100%+ of me when I work for them. I stand out because I don't just take and deliver pictures, I capture and present memories for a lifetime.

            Q & A

            Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

            Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

            Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

            How much does baby photography cost?

            Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

            When should you take newborn photos?

            Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.
