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.

It was a pleasure working with Kuks on this photo shoot, he is very personable and patient. Took the time to get to know me a bit before beginning which is pretty important for portrait photography. The pics turned out great, everyone loved them!

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 was in need of an updated portrait photo for use in my marketing materials. I scheduled a session with Jennifer and I'm so thrilled with the photos she took. She just has that gift of capturing you at your best. She provided me with my photos very quickly. I will definitely contact her for my future photography needs.

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.

I had the best time working with Kenny! My headshots & portrait photos turned out perfect and I will be able to use many shots for both my business and personal endeavors. Kenny was fun and professional to work with, was on time (drove all the way to where I live!), great communicator, and embraced any ideas I wanted to incorporate into the shoot. I would highly recommend Kenny to my family and friends. Thank you and I will be sure to reach out to Kenny/Camerashock for my future photography needs!

Catherine is an amazing photographer, we have hired many photographers before because my wife and me want to keep those memories for our children as much as we can. Among all photographers we have hired, Catherine is one of our favorites. She is kind, professional and very artistic. Catherine has even more patience than us with kids! All photos we received were just incredible! The light in the photo was so subtle and beautiful, which makes the photo have a texture of oil painting. We both love them so much and cannot wait to print them out and hang them on our new home's walls. I definitely would love to hire her again in the future and recommend her to my friends.

Jen was great at making something that's usually stressful for me (having photos taken) into a relaxed and easy experience (not an easy task on a 37 week pregnant fretful woman!) And she was great when she stopped by a few weeks later to take a few more pictures of my newborn. So glad to have the pictures for all of those early memories now! Thank you!!! :)

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 needed some head shots for my new website featuring my latest music. Scott recommend a spot for outdoor pictures incorporating an urban feel. Never would have thought use such a simple but clever cityscape backdrop. Not only does he have a great eye and creative idea's but also top end equipment. I've used other photographers before with half the results. If your looking for a pro he's your guy.......

Arnell is the best, he treats you like family. He has taken our family portrait since since 2005. He is creative, energetic and personable. Arnell took my daughter and sons senior portrait and we were very happy with both. In 2012 Arnell too our family portrait again, and everyday I love looking at it, he captures the moment. Arnell you are the best.....

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.
