I was looking for a photographer for my son's first set of professional headshots. We had looked at several individuals and decided on Don. He came with an enormous amount of experience and after our initial discussion I was certain he would be good. He was very patient with our 11 yr old and took a lot of shots. He worked as many angles and saw a vision we didn't see. It was a long shoot and when we were finished my son praised him for how easy he was to work with and that his direction was easy to understand. My son also told him that it was easy to pose when the person giving directions had a certain vision in mind. Our final product was better than we could imagine. The edited photos were so amazing. I highly recommend Don for any photography needs. He has a keen eye for detail and a wealth of information for shots and what to look for. He's also a really nice guy and very professional. Thanks Don - we will be seeing you again I'm sure.

Anne was very meticulous with the setup, extremely careful, cool and friendly with my 3 week old newborn. She is a no-doubt hire for newborn portrait photography. We tried to squeeze in a few family portraits indoor with grandparents as well, and she did a great job in the available limited space and lighting.

Hiring Jack Schulz for our generational family photo was the best choice we could have made. (We live in another state and our family was meeting in Phoenix.) Jack was responsive, listened well to what we were seeking, and even came to the photo site several days in advance to scope out our options. He communicated often with me as we planned the place, composition, clothing coordination, etc., which heightened my confidence that he was sincerely interested in our photo shoot, and he was. We are exceptionally pleased with the outcome of our shoot that was completed in a very short time period. Jack is a true professional, who also enjoys his photography and clients. I can highly recommend him for family and portrait photography, which he provided for our family.

Meredith did an incredible job! She works very well with babies; very patient and gentle. She was very professional and took her time. She did not appear fixated on the time like most photographers can be. And, most importantly, the pictures turned out fantastic!! Such a great service for the price.... Will definitely be contacting her in the future. :)

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.

I took my wife over to Tony's studio for a portrait session. He made us feel right at home with the comfy furniture and even fruit and chilled drinks! My wife got a makeover from his makeup artist which made her feel a million dollars, and the photographs were beautiful. Like something out of a magazine. He prints them, which I loved because there's something about having a physical print that makes it more meaningful. We left with 12 prints. We got the digital files too so the kids could put them online, but my wife and I adore the prints. I get so busy with work, it's special to me to have photographs of my beautiful wife. Such amazing quality and we can physically hold and show them to people when they visit our home. Highly recommended. We're lucky that he's right on or doorstep in Scottsdale. We'll be back to see him at Christmas.

This was a corporate photo shoot and everything that I heard back from the Phoenix office was positive -- he arrived on time, was easy to work with, he is friendly, professional, AND the photos look great! Everything that you hope for when you hire someone in another state that you don't know! Thank you so much, David!!

Nick is an amazing photographer! Our organization has worked with him on several occasions as both primary photographer (formal portraits at fundraisers) and casual photographer (at various large crowd events). Each and every time he's been professional, easy to work with, and has produced amazing photos. We highly recommend him!

Having a one year old that doesn't want to corporate is never fun. Having a photographer with a ton of patience made everything go so much better. Connie happily took photos of everything I wanted, added a few poses of her own, and gave me some outstanding photos of my baby. I love her!

Justin and Chris took some family portraits for me the day after Thanksgiving. They were prompt, professional and so friendly. When my family wanted to change locations during the photo shoot, Justin and Chris didn't bat an eye and were very flexible and accommodating. The photos turned out beautifully!

I got my sons 3 month old pictures done by ms. Andreina and she was very patient, and well prepared. I had no clue what I was doing let alone what to bring and she helped me through the whole process. she even brought her own props/ backdrops. Being a young teen mom with a new baby she definitely made my experince of taking professional pictures for the first time, one to remember!

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.
