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.

Kathleen recently photographed our newborn daughter, she did an amazing job and was very patient with our baby, she was sooo fussy that the first time we didn't get very many good pictures, she let us come back and give it another try which turned our great! I highly recommend her for any family/newborn pics! : )

Robert and his wife are amazing ! Choosing them as our photographers for my graduation photos was the best decision we made. They made the whole process enjoyable, natural, and professional. They are a joy to work with and they exceeded our expectations. They have a true natural talent for photography and are SUPER kind and accommodating. Their communication was consistent and efficient. 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!

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.

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 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.

We used TLT Media for our wedding announcements. I didn't want them to be cheeseball, but she took time to brainstorm ideas and we decided to go back to our alma mater, where my fiance and I first met. The session was fun and relaxed. Emma even helped me design and print the invites. She'll be our wedding photographer this autumn. Thanks, Emma!

I saw a photo shoot that Cathlene did with a Mom and daughter that felt genuine, and captured the strong connection of their relationship. After seeing these pictures, I had to have her photograph my daughter and I. Leading up to our session, she gave us subtle suggestions on what to wear, and she was aware of what time of day the light would be ideal for our photo shoot. Our interactions with Cathlene immediately felt relaxed. I thought we were just warming up, but some of the photographs she took early on in or session, were some of my favorites. The way Cathlene edited the pictures was creative, and balanced. There are so many photos that feel simply magical to me and my family. I’m delighted to have these memories professionally and artistically chronicled.

    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.
