I can not say enough good things about Marteen and his team!!!! We had a combo package for two sets of head shots and a couples portrait. Marteen his wife and assistant Liz made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire photo shoot. As a same sex couple we always dread feeling uncomfortable when working with someone new, but Marteen made us feel so comfortable that our entire session had such an amazing vibe. We HIGHLY recommend him. You will not be disappointed! He is very passionate about what he does and cares deeply about making sure you get exactly what you want!! Thank you again for an amazing experience.

Images by Kristi & Paul Wolverton have captured some of the most important memories of my life. My parent's wedding, my wedding, our newborns and family portraits. Professional and family oriented. Always beautiful images! Timeless photography at its best.

Ande does an AMAZING job with our family portraits. I do not use any other photographer to capture our greatest family moments, because Ande is awesome at capturing the greatest candid moments in between "poses." I love the fact that Ande allows her customers to choose how they want their pictures to turn out, rather than a standard photographer tell their customers how to pose. One thing that I love most about Ande, is the fact that my son has become comfortable around her to take his picture. My son is autistic and he is not really sociable with people outside of his "circle of people" that is normally comfortable with. He refers to Ande as his friend, and loves to smile in front of the camera for her. Ande has really taken the time to get to know us throughout our photo sessions, and is patient with my kids. I always recommend Ande to my family and friends for any photo session.

    Mr. and Mrs. Moore was and is a very pleasant God fearing couple. It was an honor to work with him and his wife. They prove to be a very reliable, honest and hard working team. Mr. Moor took the time to explaine and show us different packagest of the services they offer at a very reasonable and affordable price.The joy of watchinh them interact with a great spirit, fun and enthusiasm while taking photos of my son and family for their wedding was amazing. They went above n beyond what most photographers would do. They gave great advice, encouraging words and helped with many other things. I'm very grateful that God allowed me to meet them and be a blessing to them as they were to us. Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Moore continue to be lead by God and be a blessing to others as they be a blessing to your profession.

        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.
