Albert is a wonderful photographer. I love the pictures he took of our concert last night. He captured the mood beautifully. I will definitely use him again.

Great experience from scheduling through receiving the photos. I could not be happier with the quality of the results. In fact, someone endorsed me for "portrait photography" on LinkedIn - how is that for an endorsement?

I am so glad to have Thomas as my photographer for my graduation photo. He is so incredibly professional at what he does and he is a very friendly individual. He took all the shots with precisions and perfection. I highly recommend Thomas to be your photographer for your upcoming events. Five stars all the way.

I am writing my review before I even receive my pictures from Cindy. She was the photographer at my son's very small intimate wedding at the UC Botanical Gardens and The Claremont Hotel. She was there waiting for us when we got there. Already had scoped out the place for good photo spots. From the start she took control (in a good way)! She was so relaxed and helped everyone feel comfortable. She was always aware of her surroundings and never in the way. She took a lot of pictures. Some I saw on her camera and I cannot wait to see the rest. She will be doing some more photo shoots for us very soon. What a find. She is a gem.

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.

Andrea did an incredible job photographing my 3-day business seminar called PleasureCEO Live! She worked well within the setting, and managed to capture some precious moments that I can now use well in my marketing materials. I myself am a professional portrait photographer so my standards are quite high, and I highly recommend Andrea for your events!

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

Eric did a fantastic job capturing my portrait photos around San Francisco area. Right from corresponding with me for choosing the best locations to building a strong theme for my shoot, Eric was very patient and paid close attention to detail. I highly recommend scheduling any of your photoshoots with him because he is willing to go above and beyond to offer you the best output. His knowledge of SF is reflected in his ability to identify ideal locations for different occasions. I can vouch that you'll be more than satisfied by his excellent work.

Usman has done a fantastic job with our wedding photo-shoot in a limited time on a limited budget! We were very comfortable around him and he told us how and where to stand, so we felt at-ease. It was a natural and relaxing process, which we are grateful for. We got great portrait photos and picturesque views of us and majestic City Hall. We don't regret our photographer choice even a second and I would recommend him to everyone!

Tri was exceptionally easy to work with, talented, and generous with his time, both in shooting and in retouching. I was looking for a mix of headshots/portraits: something professional, something fun, something that would display youthful charm and something that would display maturity without being stiff. I got exactly what I was looking for, and Tri even encouraged my dad to join in and took some great father/son shots. I am doing a variety of media appearances and speaking engagements, and I feel like I have enough of a variety to choose a portrait that would work for any different kind of engagement, as well as for my social media accounts. I would highly recommend Tri to anyone looking for an incredible portrait from a photographer that will really take the time to get to know you and deliver photos that capture your personality and essence.

Sumit was amazing! About two weeks before my husband's 40th birthday party, I decided I'd like to hire a photographer to take photos at the dinner. I started searching the web, found thumbtack, and put in a request for a photographer. My husband always looks uncomfortable when a photographer is around, but I thought I'd give it a go so we could try to get some nice photos of the special day. I have to tell you that hiring Sumit was the best decision I made regarding the party planning. He captured very special moments including my husband walking into the party and meeting friends he had not seen in years. We also had a few impromptu speeches and Sumit captured the moment for us with each of those speeches. Sumit was so professional and helpful! He was very easy to work with and completely blended in during the party. His photos were excellent and truly captured the moment and emotions of the evening. Both his candid and group shots were phenomenal! I sent the guests a link to view the photos and several people commented on what a great job the photographer did. Seriously- I've previously sent professional family shots from other photographers to my friends and family, and this is the first time people emailed me to say how good a job the photographer did in capturing a moment. I would definitely recommend Sumit, and from now on he will be my go-to guy for professional photos in the future!

I had the pleasure to have Ananda taking our engagement and wedding pictures.. She is so pleasant to deal with. She is talented and has a good eye. it rained on my wedding day and we had to move everything indoors and it was a bit hectic like any other wedding. So because the photos were all taken indoors ,they were not as crisp and sharp as I wanted them to be ,so Ananda ,being the nice pleasant person that she is offered to take our portrait pictures later on for no extra charge. She is personal,nice,very understanding,and above all very talented.. and it was a pleasure working with her. I would highly recommend her for any event !

We hired Larry for our company event, he is very responsible, provides great work with excellent price. A lot of other photographers will try make extra by not providing a full service, with him all the planning and post editing are included. Larry is also great that when we were setting up the venue, he arrived early to help, as well as staying late to help us clean up. Great guy!

Verified review

I've been modeling for about a year now, and the only reason I was even able to get my foot in the door a fraction of the way was because of Nico. He was the first person I ever shot with. Since that time we have worked together numerous other times. My favorite thing about Nico, besides his obviously gorgeous photographs, is how comfortable he makes me feel when we shoot. I love pushing the boundaries of my art and being able to work with Nico is the only way I'm able to do that. Nico loves what he does and it shows 100% of the way through his work. He cares about making me, and every other model he's worked with I have no doubt, feel respected. This is a huge problem in the industry, but photographers like Nico are hopefully the forefront of a big change that needs to happen. I use so many photo's that Nico has taken of me in my portfolio, and my agent loves them .

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!

Steven has now helped me take portrait photos 3 times, and they've all been amazing! He knows how to bring out best in you - including finding the right angles, lighting, background, and helping you naturally smile / laugh. He send me the pics in a very easy to navigate gallery. The whole experience was seamless and even fun, thanks to Steven!

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.
