We needed photos for the cover and interior of a regional magazine, which is published by the nation's largest networking entity for building and construction professionals. We had an extremely tight time frame for booking the photographer, taking the photos and receiving photo edits. Will Hartman with Desert Rose Photography was able to expedite our request at a very reasonable rate, and had no problem managing our very detailed instructions on the execution of the photo shoot. (Also, none of the publisher's representatives attended the photo shoot - Will executed everything on site based on guidance he received via telephone and email.) He arrived early to the location to scope out the best places for outdoor photography, and also worked hand-in-hand with the photo subjects to stage everyone (~25 people) in a variety of settings and locations. Needless to say, Will went above and beyond to deliver photos that were engaging, energetic, and dynamic. It was a real pleasure to work with him. We plan to use him again if the need arises, and would recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional, creative, capable photographer.

Brad (and Thumbtack) were phenomenal! At nearly the last minute I decided a professional photographer was in order for my daughter's Sweet 16 party. Somehow while searching the internet I found Thumbtack and after a few tries, found Brad. I provided no direction beyond the location and time of the party. He showed up as promised and did an incredible job. My daughter and I could not be happier with the photos. Thanks Brad!!

Ivan was my photographer for my maternity pictures. He did a phenomenal job! He took all of my example photos and really worked hard to get mine as close to them as possible. He brought a lot of camera equipment and material for lighting. I couldn't be happier with how the photos turned out. In all, he spent around 3 hours shooting. I never expected him to take so much time out of his day, but he was very dedicated and cared about the quality of the photos. Ivan truly went above and beyond. He had a great attitude and was easy to shoot with. I would recommend him to anyone!

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

I'm writing this review to commend Danielle Penn on a outstanding job well done. I recently utilized Danielle's services for my family portraits. Danielle showed up on time and just delivered it! I was so impressed by her amazing work and how she works well with natural light to produce the exact pictures I was envisioning. They came out perfectly. I'm amazed at her ability to capture the moment and her uncanny eye for detail. This young lady is truly a artist and I look forward to using her for any and all photography needs I highly recommend her to anyone. Real pro 5 stars!!! Thank you so much Danielle.

Wow! I had my very important Doctoral Grad Party in May/2018 and Susan and David from SuStudios were excellent professionals who guided me throughout the process and were extremely responsive to my needs. They arrived prior to the event and set up their equipment ... no time was wasted!!! My over 100 guests loved all of the props and the fun enthusiasm demonstrated by the photographer taking the pictures and video taping; I used their photo booth and video booth and so HAPPY I did!!! I got to see the printed photos and they were outstanding with excellent quality; the video of my guests/family was so much fun to review. A Huge "Thank you" goes to SuStudios for their excellence in the work they do! I am definitely using your company AGAIN!!!!!

I used Kenny Goldberg Photography for my Professional Linkedin photo, as well, and am very happy with it.

I hired Jordan to photograph a baby shower. Our theme was a little less traditional, so we needed someone that could keep up with the movement through out the party and Jordan did a great job. We got some really great candid / action shots. We'll use his set up shots for marketing purposes, but his work was great, and we're happy to share them with the guests of honor. Jordan was super responsive and easy to work with. We'll absolutely call him for future events.

I am completely blown away by Landi ' professionalism and the quality of her work. She captured every small details just as beautifully as the obvious ones during my event. Her work is exquisite! Not only did Landi capture the great moments of the party, she also provided a "Photo Booth". She framed each personal photo for my guests without a staff to assist! She is efficient, and proficient in her craft. Landi will be my photographer for life!

We scheduled a family group photo of 20 people, 10 adults, 10 kids. Hugh noticed that the daylight outside was ideal and the background good, thus the group picture was taken in this setting and turned out very well considering children ranging in age from 14 to 10 months. I would recommend Hugh to anyone needing family photographs at a reasonable price.

Mukaila photographed my infant son's baptism. For an hour long ceremony, he took 170 truly wonderful photos. He got audience shots, close ups of the service, and at the end, specific group photos. Mukaila was very easy to work with, friendly, and super professional. He communicated with me several times before the event, showed up on time the day of the baptism, & I received the link to the photos just 3 days after the event; I thought it would take a week. I highly recommend Mukaila because I had a very positive experience.

We recently reached out to Ashley regarding maternity photos and newborn photos. We decided to go with Ashley based on her responsiveness and professionalism. She is so sweet and flexible. She offered suggestions on sites for our maternity photos and did not mind working with our dog. She was able to get our photos back in a week and honestly, there are so many great photos-- we don't know which ones to choose! We highly recommend Ashley and look forward to using her again when our little boy arrives.

Ethan does an amazing job with Portrait photography. He has his own way of putting a scene in a frame. He makes a simple background look like paradise. I have the exact same camera as he does still don’t know how he does it!

The quality of Philicia's work is spectacular! When I checked out her work on Instagram, I loved all of her portraits and had to have her photograph my model headshots. I'm so happy with the results! I even heard back from two modeling agencies! Philicia, thank you! I will be sure to contact you when I need to update my digitals!

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.
