Thomas did a great job capturing our wedding at Wine & Roses in Lodi! Very professional and friendly person. He was never in the way or distracting like I have seen with other wedding photographers and yet he was still able to take so many amazing and memorable photos. Thank you!

Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but not knowing what the results are from the vendors you choose can bring the plans to a standstill. That's where I was before finding Jenn on thumbtack. When she replied to my photography request it was not the estimate that made up my mind; it was the fact that she answered my call! After the first two minutes speaking with her, I knew I found my photographer. Jenn was very upfront with what I could expect from her for the price she was offering. There was nothing that she didn't cover in terms of her contract, the deposit, and the final product. I liked Jenn from the very first moment I spoke with her. Every step of the way she worked with me either by telephone or email. I was fortunate enough that our schedules allowed for a site visit where we had the opportunity to meet in person prior to the big day. Jenn brought her camera and took some "test" shots that she posted on her blog. All I can say is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Now I was excited for the wedding day! September 3rd finally arrived and I am still bragging to anyone willing to listen about my awesome photographers. Jenn and Shannon were truly a dream to work with. They are super relaxed and not worried about the "perfect picture" but photographing the perfect moment. Jenn and Shannon let my hubby and I call all the shots as far as who and where. Our families were a bit difficult to gather at times, and I worried this could irritate the photographers; not Jenn and Shannon! They made sure that we did not miss our sunset photos and always asked our thoughts on their creative visions. Every once in awhile, Jenn would give me a sneak peek at an amazing shot she just captured! I loved that about her. Anyone thinking of hiring Kept in Time Photography by Jenn & Shannon Mormon will not be disappointed. Their photos are stunning and they are two of the nicest people to work with. I am more than satisfied with the entire experience and will be using them for all future photography needs. Highly recommended by a very happy Bride!!

Talented, professional, and flexible. He took my graduations photos from UC Davis and met up with me in the area. He brought his equipment and implemented all my ideas. Overall, open-minded and great to work with. His pricing was cheaper than most photographers and photos were received sooner than I thought. I highly recommend.

I needed some head shots for my new website featuring my latest music. Scott recommend a spot for outdoor pictures incorporating an urban feel. Never would have thought use such a simple but clever cityscape backdrop. Not only does he have a great eye and creative idea's but also top end equipment. I've used other photographers before with half the results. If your looking for a pro he's your guy.......

We hired Labra photographers for our engagement photos. They have a very reasonable rate for the exceptional pictures they take. They were open and flexible to what we wanted, as well they helped direct us to make sure we were taking good pictures. Loved our results (so many edited pictures to choose from), can't wait for them to shoot our wedding! Highly recommended.

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!

If you want the most authentic photos in town, these are your people. Thank you Kyber Light Photography!

I have had two experiences with Shelby so far (a newborn shoot that was a collaboration and a family shoot) and both experiences have been wonderful. I get so many sweet compliments on our family photos and I can't believe she's able to get so many incredible shots of all my crazy kids! I highly recommend her for all your photography needs!

Justin is truly a talented photographer. He was open minded and patient, and easy to communicate with leading up to our shoot. He listened to exactly what I wanted - candid, non-posed family portraits, and every shot turned out how I envisioned. I'm a fan of natural lighting and composition and Justin's photography style is what drew me to his work. I'm more than happy with our family photos and will undoubtedly be using J.O. Photography in the future!

I hired fongfotos to photograph my mom's surprise 80th birthday party at my house, and the entire experience could not have been better. Dara arrived as planned, well ahead of time, to get a lay of the land inside and outside. We discussed the types of shots I was looking for, and she met key family and friends prior to the surprise. Dara managed to capture every great moment from the decor, the guests, the moment my my mom walked through the door, hugs with lifelong friends, the live jazz trio, face-timing with my niece during the party, and much more. It was amazing how Dara mingled with guests and took photos seamlessly for the duration of the party. I would highly recommend Dara and fongfotos.

I am normally very shy when it comes to photos and they end up all acted out and fake. Natalie is a person that inspires you to show your real self to the lense. She chose the perfect place for me to feel me and feel free in the pictures, she has an artistic eye that chooses the best angles and sceneries, making the pictures natural and beautiful.

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.
