I have to be honest, when i first got into Thumbtack I didn't know what to expect. But then, Mr. Bader responded to my post and sent me his information. I was so impressed with his work.From then, I know I wanted him to be the photographer for my daughter's baptism. He was great, on-time, friendly, professional, very hands-on with my family. He had suggestions on how they should pose, where to pose, and he had initiative to take picture of everyone who attended the baptism. This is exactly, what I wanted for this special event. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer. He is great!!!

I have worked with many photographers in my career...but none have been as professional as Jack. I had eight doctors in need of multiple head shots. With their professional work schedules so packed, I had limited time to get this accomplished. In one evening, Jack performed a miracle. Eight doctors now have multiple head shots that are in a word - fabulous! Jack prepared individual websites for each doctor to review their photos. I cannot wait to work on my next campaign with Jack. I know it will be a great experience.

Adrian was great to work with! All of our "requested photograph shots" were done plus more! Adrian and the additional photographer did a great job moving around the room, capturing the event as well as quickly following up with the link to the gallery to see the photos taken. I will be using Adrian T. Baird Photography for our other events and would recommend them for yours as well!

Working with Rita on this photo shoot was a fun project. After sifting through other photographers I settled on Rita because of her experience and her personality. I really mean this when I say it but I wanted someone who is going to listen to what I wanted to do and yet still add ideas to my existing project to make it even better I was amazed at her equipment the camera and the lens ..all the photo light equipment she had and the photo shooting process was very easy and smooth In my industry many of us use stock photos taken from catalogs and other online sites but I wanted something that was unique and different that set me apart from what other people in the industry have. Rita came up with a lot of good ideas and different angles for shooting my product line I want to say that this project really pleased me and I am happy about it and I'll be using Rita again as I introduce new products to my online site All in all I give Rita two thumbs up

We initially booked Harrison to take our engagement photos over 10 years ago. He then shot our wedding, and we loved our photos so much we hired him to shoot my parents' wedding anniversary dinner. We live on the east coast, but each year when we come to visit family, we have hired Harrison to do a photo shoot. He has become our family photographer. Harrison's photos of our family through the years are hanging all over our homcome, and truly everyone who visits our home for the first time compliments our portraits.

Andi was our wedding photographer and she did a great job! We received her photos quickly after the wedding was over, and the quality was that of a pro. We had a lot of family photographers at the wedding, but you can definitely tell a difference from their photos and Andi's. Thanks Andi! You rock!

We seriously could not have asked for a better photographer. MSV was punctual, friendly, understanding of the pressures of the day and captured everything we wanted to express in our birthday photos and more! There is a reason he's so well reviewed and popular. Hands down the nicest guy to work with throughout our entire birthday planning process. Our birthday was on September 9th and its september 18th as i'm writing this and he emailed me and said that our photos are ready! So fast!. Don't settle. MSV is the BEST!

Katheryn photographed our family at Papago Park and did a great job. She was very professional and is very good with children as well as adults. Kat's approach is less structured than many photographers, and it worked great with our 6 year old who couldn't sit still, much less hold a pose. The results were natural looking photos that our family is really happy with. Highly recommend Katheryn Navas Photography!

It was a pressure having Copper State music as my entertainment company, going forward I will always use them. They had all the newest and greatest music. They also did a great job mixing their music and did a great job mixing requests in with the music they were playing. I didn’t expect Lisa to be an Excellent photographer either and she took fantastic photos of my 30th birthday party! They also played music that I remembered listening to as a teenager with with it being my 30th birthday party. It was almost as if they had directly connected to my iPod, I was so amazed. They were so professional and the price was great for the excellent quality of service I got. I had bad a bad experience in the past with well known large company that gave me poor service and didn’t care because of their trademark. I like that they are a couple like they were part of the family and went out of their way to make my day special. Thanks again guys!

We have had Steve come to our office on four different occasions to take a variety of pictures that we could use in marketing materials, both print and online. The pictures were very professional and included a huge assortment. He also turned them around quickly so that we could meet a couple of our tight ad deadlines. You will not be disappointed.

Lamar is a fantastic photographer and a wonderful person to do business with. He does a great job of making sure you're comfortable and getting the full value of the session. Not only is he extremely talented, he is timely when it comes to receiving the pictures. I had Lamar for both maternity and newborn pictures, and it's safe to say I will be calling him again for more family photos! Loved every minute of both sessions and the final products. Such a laid back guy, definitely gets the job done well!

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.
