I recently got acting headshots from Brian. It was great working with him! He was very friendly, and I felt comfortable enough to try out some awesome expressions/poses/etc. We would do a series of shots, then look at them on his laptop so that I could see what was working and what wasn't and adjust accordingly. With previous photographers, they would just do a bunch of shoots, then show me the photos online the next day. Brian found a great hair and makeup professional who made me look and feel beautiful! And finally, I appreciated that Brian was really flexible about timing, editing, background setup, etc. Thanks Brian!

Wow!!!!!! Ok...... Not even sure where I should start! Cindy, was truly amazing... When I first met Cindy, instantly I knew she would be a loving addition to "our family". When it comes to your wedding photos, you really want some with obvious talent, (which she has) and of course an eye for detail and the ability to capture emotion and real feeling... If this is what you are looking for then Cindy is your woman!!! She didn't stop!!! She took so many amazing high quality photos, that will be a memory for a lifetime.... Grateful for you cindy!!! And can't wait for future baby photos... Much love. Janel~

Sheila is not only a talented photographer but also very professional. She is very communicative and was a pleasure to work with. She was a joy to have around during the wedding day and was honestly a "fly on the wall" unlike other wedding photographers who are too "in it". The pictures she takes are beautiful and extremely well priced. I would not hesitate to work with her again. I actually look forward to it.

We had our pre wedding photoshoot done by Diane and it was a great experience. We were visiting SF for a few days and were wondering if we will be able to capture the essence of the place in the photoshoot, but Diane drove us to the most beautiful places in the city and clicked lifelong memories. We had some pictures clicked with our friends as well and they came out really well. Diane was very flexible and it was fun spending the entire day with her. She made us really comfortable and helped us all along the photoshoot. I will highly recommend her to couples for their wedding and prewedding photoshoots.

Andrea served as event photographer for my baby shower at the Orinda Country Club. She was on time, very professional and very easy to work with. She sent over a sample photo, which will serve as my picky sister's holiday card photo. Seriously this says a lot! I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures from the event but know they will be beautiful! Highly recommend working with Andrea

Eric and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.

it was a beautiful experience working with him. He made me feel so comfortable due to the fact it was my first time ever taking professional pictures. It went above and beyond for my maternity pictures, he took his time did not rush the process and it was easy for me to get comfortable with him. Not only that he has such a beautiful and cozy studio with a lot of rooms to take pictures. AWESOME WORK!!! He will be taking pictures of my baby once she is born. He also stayed in communication with me while waiting for the proofs and final prints. His prices are amazing...Top Dog!!

My fiancé hired Steve to photograph his proposal, and it was magical. A day that I will never forget, and thanks to Steve I have beautiful pictures hanging on my wall to show off. Very professional and worked well around my restless and rowdy toddlers! Pictures were ready for review within hours not weeks, and I had the prints in hand not long after as well. Would highly recommend and will be hiring for our future photo shoots as well! 10/10!

James is one of the finest talents ever in the fashion and beauty photography genre. I have known him and his work for years. The images he creates, never cease to amaze me in quality and range, and in the creativity they display. He is great with his models, knowing just how to create that moment. Always getting the models, Hair & Make-up, stylists etc, to be at their very best. He also does his own retouching and imaging. This is the icing on the creative cake. He sees these images to completion, fulfilling the creative vision that he has at the onset of a shoot. Lets face it, anyone can retouch these days. But those photographers that can put that true creative polish on an shot, delivering an amazing image from the onset of a shoot to final art, are the best of the best. In my opinion, James is one of the very best.

Tri Nguyen is the absolute BEST in the business. I was deeply enamored by his work long before I was fortunate to cross paths with him. He is such a wonderful person, it is effortless to feel comfortable with him. It usually takes some warming up to connect with a new photographer to bring out such emotions for the shoot. This is definitely NOT the case with Tri. Tri has a unique talent & eye for capturing raw emotion which compliment his brilliant style perfectly. I am anxiously awaiting our 3rd shoot! Tri is the MAN!

We hired Rich Jarvis to take senior portraits of my son after a couple of failed attempts by the schools choice. This very special time needed to be captured and remembered. He did a phenomenal job! Not only did he choose a great setting but he worked with my son on multiple clothing changes and props. The hardest part will be choosing which ones to display as each and every photos is amazing! He Was personable, professional, and made sure to get exactly what we wanted. From now on he is the only photographer for our family!

Jean-Paul was a perfect photographer for our daughter's Sweet Sixteen. I contacted him last minute through thumbtack (a week before the party) and he gave me an amazing deal that didn't compare to any other quotes I got. He responded quickly, showed up early to the event and was very kind professional and attentive throughout the event. He took many photos, and got back to me with pictures only a couple days after the party. Let me tell you- the pictures were beautiful and captured each moment perfectly. We will definitely be calling Jean-Paul again!

We needed a photographer for a next-day photoshoot. Catey provided samples of the types of work we requested when she initially reached out, which led to us hiring her. She is responsive and easy to work with. She had our group laughing and comfortable very soon after starting the shoot.

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.

    I am a gay 28yr old male and I have long hair and I desperately want a decent set of photos while I have my hair and then some dating profile pictures after cutting it. I am very self conscious but it feels important to me because of how long I've had this as a part of my appearance. I don't want to look back on my images from my past with regret! If I was more in shape I would be less shy, but even still Id love to see if my photographer can make me look good with my shirt off or with even less, before or after the cut.
