"My now husband and I planned an elopement/secret courthouse civil ceremony about a week before the date we selected (our 6yr dating anniversary). As a wedding vendor myself (musician), I’ve seen my fair share of wedding photos and knew exactly what I definitely *didn’t want* and that helped me to sift through all the quotes I received and connect with Celina. I also knew that I only wanted to hire her for an hour because that would be sufficient time to capture both our super short ceremony and some pictures around the courthouse outside afterwards, and was amazed by the work she had featured on her site. I was so happy to find out that she was available (luckily our date ended up being midweek) to shoot our ceremony as she was my first choice among all the vendors who contacted me on Thumbtack and GigSalad (and many were wonderful options). Leading up to the day of the wedding, Celina was extremely professional, very prompt with her responses and very warm/friendly as well. She arrived early, captured candids during the ceremony, and once we stepped outside to take more posed pictures, she was wonderful at directing us! She even delivered my photos digitally within one week of my ceremony (talk about turn around time!) and I am absolutely thrilled with them. She has such a great eye for color and what poses would work best and I would hire her a million times over. She also accepts multiple forms of payment (Venmo/PayPal/cash/card) to make it easier for her clients. Thank you so much, Celina!!! We loved working with you and adore your work. We will definitely be recommending you to anyone looking for a photographer in San Diego area (my friends / family / clients) because you’re the absolute best in every way! -Summer & Jeff"

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.
