I recently got acting headshots from Brian. It was great working with him! He was very friendly, and I felt comfortable enough to try out some awesome expressions/poses/etc. We would do a series of shots, then look at them on his laptop so that I could see what was working and what wasn't and adjust accordingly. With previous photographers, they would just do a bunch of shoots, then show me the photos online the next day. Brian found a great hair and makeup professional who made me look and feel beautiful! And finally, I appreciated that Brian was really flexible about timing, editing, background setup, etc. Thanks Brian!

Wow!!!!!! Ok...... Not even sure where I should start! Cindy, was truly amazing... When I first met Cindy, instantly I knew she would be a loving addition to "our family". When it comes to your wedding photos, you really want some with obvious talent, (which she has) and of course an eye for detail and the ability to capture emotion and real feeling... If this is what you are looking for then Cindy is your woman!!! She didn't stop!!! She took so many amazing high quality photos, that will be a memory for a lifetime.... Grateful for you cindy!!! And can't wait for future baby photos... Much love. Janel~

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 served as event photographer for my baby shower at the Orinda Country Club. She was on time, very professional and very easy to work with. She sent over a sample photo, which will serve as my picky sister's holiday card photo. Seriously this says a lot! I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures from the event but know they will be beautiful! Highly recommend working with Andrea

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 and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.

it was a beautiful experience working with him. He made me feel so comfortable due to the fact it was my first time ever taking professional pictures. It went above and beyond for my maternity pictures, he took his time did not rush the process and it was easy for me to get comfortable with him. Not only that he has such a beautiful and cozy studio with a lot of rooms to take pictures. AWESOME WORK!!! He will be taking pictures of my baby once she is born. He also stayed in communication with me while waiting for the proofs and final prints. His prices are amazing...Top Dog!!

Kenny took the time had much more equipment to do a thorough job and is very personable. Customer satisfaction is his top priority. His my third try and overcame all the issues I had that weren't professional by the last 2 photographers. He was able to get even distribution. The right color. I can't wait to see the final result and will post his work versus regular photographer's work the ones who say they can do the job but cant. If you are a biz that requires state of the art pics such as used for prints advertising I recommend him.

Nicholas did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments and details in our wedding with an articstic eye! Our friends and family are still raving about his work! He was also very accommodating and went above and beyond to film everything we asked for and more. Leading up to the wedding, he was always responsive immediately within the day if not hour and even after the wedding during the editing process he was like this! He has always been professional, polite, and friendly. He got along great with our photographer. He got our wedding video to us very quickly and edited everything beautifully while making sure to cleverly add in our special songs and props. If you are looking for someone professional, creative, friendly, accommodating, and affordable for your special occasions look no further!

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 .

Jean-Paul was a perfect photographer for our daughter's Sweet Sixteen. I contacted him last minute through thumbtack (a week before the party) and he gave me an amazing deal that didn't compare to any other quotes I got. He responded quickly, showed up early to the event and was very kind professional and attentive throughout the event. He took many photos, and got back to me with pictures only a couple days after the party. Let me tell you- the pictures were beautiful and captured each moment perfectly. We will definitely be calling Jean-Paul again!

Victoria did an amazing job with my son's newborn and 3 month photo shoots. He was not always cooperative but Victoria was patient. She even came back a second time to try and get some better shots. I was amazed at the outcome of the pictures, they were perfect! Not only that but Victoria suggested a few new ideas that I hadn't thought of that really took the photos to the next level. I will be hiring her for family photos as well as more milestone pictures of my little guy!

Thank you Avant-Garde for capturing the most important parts of our event!!! Not only was our engagement beautifully photographed, the little details that most photographers leave out were not missed. His pricing is very fair and affordable.

We did a photo shoot with my 3 kids 5yrs old and younger !! A lot of work to say the least ! We also thought to add baby chickens in the mix.. yes we're crazy haha ! BUT it went so well!! Courtney was so quick to capture such precious moments with them! The kids had so much fun with it! I've in the past went through so many different types of photography wether it was going to JCPenny or having up coming photographers do our door shoots and I felt always let down and dissatisfied with the final product.. BUT with Courtney we did a 30 min shoot and I was given the photo shoot writhing a couple days and was amazed at how amazing they were! I will forever use her! I'm even going to be redoing my wedding photos just so she can take them 🤗 !!!

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.
