I contacted Adam Southard for new theatrical headshots. After reviewing several quotes and talking with potential photographers, I was most impressed with Adam's portfolio and his quick turn around time to answer my questions. Because I needed so many different looks, I also needed a photographer with a great eye and who could help me get the shots I needed (all in one shoot). I signed up for the headshot package - 6 looks for $300. I arrived to the shoot hair and makeup ready and had a friend who assisted me with the photos. Adam was very friendly to us both and I know immediately that the shoot would go well. Adam is based out of a home studio, so he has different backdrops and lighting inside his living room studio. It is a very comfortable atmosphere, again, making it much easier to get great shots. For each of the six different looks Adam took some inside the studio and then we went outside for a different lighting and feel. For this reason I feel I got such a great array of looks in a relatively short shoot! Following the photo shoot I received a dropbox file of all of my photos, in roughly three hours. I reviewed the photos with my agent and we selected twelve that were best for retouching. Adam immediately touched up the photos and sent them to me via dropbox. I had a few other finicky things I needed fixed in the photos (as per agents' request) and Adam very graciously fixed these and sent them back to me the following day. I came away with a great selection of photos that I can use for diverse roles/work. I give Best La Headshots/ Adam Southard 5 stars and fully recommend him to any and all actors. He is an outstanding photographer and also very kind and easy to work with (this is not always the case with photographers!). You will be very happy with the results!

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!

If you're looking for an experienced photographer who is as kind as he is professional, you must talk to Tom at Tovicand Photography. After having a baby, we really wanted to have professional newborn photos taken. After seeing Tom's wedding portfolios, we knew he would be perfect. He is incredibly creative and is constantly looking for those special "real-life" moments, capturing them perfectly. On top of everything else, the photos came back extremely fast! They look absolutely pristine and we've already had tons of compliments on the quality. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU, Tom and Tovicand Photography for doing such a beautiful job. We couldn't be happier.

I worked with Amina Touray when shooting my album cover in May 2013, which ended up with a NAACP Image Nomination! We shot outside in Pasadena during 3-4 hours and I felt very comfortable and relaxed in her presence. Amina and her make up artist were on time, ready for me and listened to my concerns and specific needs regarding the make up and angles of the shooting my body. I was very impressed with her way of giving me instructions and feedback, which helped me get what I wanted-the perfect pic for an album cover. The only thing that could have been better, was the area to get my make up done at, but that's more of a convienience issue than a must. Amina is by far one of the most talented photographers I've worked with, and I've since done 2 more shoots with her, as well as purchased her services for 2 friends of mine, so that they could get to feel like a superstar for a day, like I did.

Samer was great, he showed up on time and started taking pics with little direction from me because I was running around hosting the event. He took great candid shots without being in the way.

I had excellent experience with Haldane Morris Photography. He is so professional. He know exactly what he is doing. I spent total three hours and got so much high quality photos. His technique is different compare to many other photographers who i had been working with. With those photos you don't really need a photoshop. He also working with such a talented makeup/hair stylist Keon Cruz, very professional , his light makeup perfect for the headshot. So you can also hiring him as well, if you want to. I highly recommending Haldane Morris Photography. :) Wish you all stay beautiful:*!!!! Anastasiya Mitrunen.

Hiring Attis Photography for our wedding was one of the best decisions my wife and I made. We met with so many photographers, but Attis definitely stood apart from the rest. Anita is extremely organized and will get out of you exactly what you're looking for. Chris takes beautiful photos and has great attention to detail. We hired them for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and they did an amazing job on both. If I could go back, I would absolutely hire them again. And I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

I'm new to selecting photographers from Thumbtack, so was a little nervous. April far exceeded our expectations for professionalism and work quality. She was able to move her schedule around to accommodate a large corporate event over multiple days. The photos turned out great and were delivered promptly. We definitely plan to use April Rocha Photography again!

Stephanie was so patient and understanding with us! We actually showed up about 10 minutes late and she used that time to scope out the location to make sure we shot in the absolute best places. What an angel! This was me and my partner's first photoshoot and we were a little nervous but Stephanie immediately made us feel comfortable. Within minutes we were laughing, giggling, and we forget there was even a camera! The pictures came out spectacular and I cannot be more grateful for what Stephanie has captured. The picture I attached was perfect timing and that encapsulates the way she photographs, her timing is everything!!! I can't wait to get these printed and put up in our apartment. For those of you who might be nervous, she is a great photographer for first-timers. She isn't afraid to get dirty for the perfect shot and her smile and warmness makes you feel at home.

Jerry was terrific -- a wonderful photographer, genuine human being and total professional. I am not at all comfortable having my picture taken, but he put me at ease and made me feel at home. Plus, his photos are uniquely shot -- he really captured who I was, inside and out. That's in part because he took the time to get to know me. His prices were very reasonable, and he delivered the pictures quickly. Look closely at his sample head shots -- he shows an artistry unique to headshot photographers. Plus, he is a really kind, friendly person. I also recommend his makeup artist. She made be look better, but still like me, which is exactly what I wanted.

Michael was absolutely wonderful. Photographing 6 week old puppies is not easy (and we have 9 of them), and he brought along an assistant (his charming 10 yr old son) who helped me move puppies in and out of the set, and made perfect funny noises to get their attention. We will definitely hire Michael again, and expect our puppy buyers will treasure their "baby" pictures forever. Very professional, amazing to watch him work.

Magaly is an incredible photographer. Not only did Magaly take her time with me, she made me feel comfortable and beautiful during our photo shoot. She made sure I had natural reactions and captured that on camera! My graduation photos are not only mom approved but really really special because of the time and care she took to make sure not only the light and scenery looked great but that I felt great. She also edited these photos so well! I’m proud to show them off and put them into my personal and professional sphere because of the quality of work. I will definitely contract her and recommend her for all types of photos. Thank you Maggie!!!

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.
