Adam and Hanna were amazing. They made my mama to be feel beautiful at 9 months pregnant and took some beautiful photos of the baby shower. Couldn't be more pleased.

I would highly recommend 1shotphotography! We had Fahim as our photographer at our son's first birthday party and he was amazing! We love the pictures, they are beautiful. We were very happy with the service we received. Fahim was extremely helpful and always quick to respond to emails. He definitely knew what he was doing. His photos turned out great! The photos are the most important part of any special event, because they are a treasure you will have forever. Kudos for making my son's first birthday wonderful & memorable! :):)

Hannah is wonderful! When selecting someone to come into my home and take photos of my newborn, it was important to me to have someone I'd trust. Hannah was a no brainer! She was super patient with me as baby wanted to eat (the entire time) and she still managed to get great photos of him even though he was being fussy. Another thing I look for in great photographers is flexibility. Hannah was super flexible with my schedule and was open to suggestions of photos I wanted. She even managed to get photos of our constantly-wiggling-pups! Thanks so much Hannah!

Sara was extremely patient with my family of five when we had our portraits done! She went well over our allotted time frame, which was appreciated because we did have a change of clothes for our "sports" themed picture I had envisioned. Sara had great ideas for poses as well. When the CD/pictures were ready to be picked up, I was totally surprised by Sara with a large, printed, and framed portrait of our family! Amazing and so sweet!

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 🤗 !!!

Jessica has been taking our family photos since 2011. She has done maternity pictures, family portraits, my daughters 1st photo shoot, Christmas and holidays pics, as well as capturing my toddler run around outdoors for some shots of her being a one-year-old. Jessica is FANTASTIC!! She incorporates your ideas as well as bringing her own ideas to the table. Her ability to capture the perfect moments is an art I have rarely seen with other photographers. She is the ONLY photographer our family trusts and uses. We love Still Moments Photography!!

Jeremia, came to my house to take pictures of a cake i made for a baby shower. The pictures turned out amazing! I even got comments from some of my clients stating that "the pictures looked like they belonged in a food magazine." he was also very easy to work with, I never felt rushed or like i was just the 9:30 apt. he would make sure that i was satiated with all the pictures he took before he even mentioned anything about being done. i would absolutely refer him to anyone looking for a photographer.

About

My market message will be targeting weddings and portraits. My goal is to be able to succeed in my challenges. As long as I can show my work to my clients with a smile on their face, I feel that I did a great job. I want my clients to feel comfortable and welcome in my studio. For me, I work hard, and I want my clients to remember me and spread my work to their friends. If you have a good connection with my audiences and my clients, I will fully be able to complete my successful career. This is what I feel: if you know the people and your audiences and they love your work, the end will have a good ending. I love shooting people because I want them to remember me of my style and my strength. If I say I'll do it, I will do it for sure! I am targeting weddings and portraits, and I am a people person. As far as marketing message, I would target wedding because how often do these weddings happen? It only happens once in a long time. A wedding is sign for eternity and honesty between the couple. I love shooting the clients in their environment; it helps you define who the characters are.

    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.
