I've had three headshot sessions with Adam and each time I've walked away with amazing photos! He's very friendly and between his neighborhood and studio he provides a wide variety of backgrounds for any kind of look. other photographers will over-photoshop your pictures so you are completely flawless and plastic looking. Adam provides touch ups that exentuate your best features and best of all, you still look like you. Adam is always the first person I recommend for any sort of photography needs from portraits to weddings

We hired Dayvid to shoot our wedding in Malibu last month. We were a little nervous hiring some one we had never met, but we could not have asked for a better photographer. Our photos are amazing, Dayvid is a true artist!!! Dayvid was also very professional and had a calm soothing way about him that makes even those who do not like to be photographed feel comfortable. His attention to detail was wonderful, we are great full to Dayvid for capturing all of the great memories of the day that we now have for a life time.

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!

Richard was one of the best photographers my family, friends and I have ever worked with in over 30 years of throwing events, weddings and birthdays. He was professional, on-time, felt the vibe of the event (even dressed the part). He had the proofs ready in a timely fashion. I will plan on using him again. He also gained many referrals from my event alone as he was one of the stars. Thank you again.

We are new to California so we knew no one to do newborn and family portraits. Found Kelli on here and she arrived today and we were so pleased . She was so creative and sweet , made us all feel comfortable and handled my 19 month like a pro! She spent so much time with all four of us and made sure that there was not one pose or moment that we missed ! I would hire her again in an instant and can't wait to see the finished product!

I was in search of a professional photographer for family portraits. Low and behold I found Thumbtack and Tom (of Tovicand Photography) found me. Tom epitomizes professionalism while still maintaining a fun, casual vibe which allowed for the product of great photographs to emerge. I'd definitely recommend Tom, especially if you have kids, as a photographer and I plan on using his services again.

We love Emily. I hired her for a family portrait photo session and she worked well with my toddler and newborn baby. She is very professional and pleasant person, she listened and gave suggestions of how we can have our photos taken. My husband and I were both happy with the photos she delivered after 2 days. We will definitely hire her again for more photo sessions in the future.

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.

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.

She was fantastic all around. She arrived early to get set up. She took tons of pictures but you hardly knew she was there. She was so respectful of the wedding party and guests and she got lots of candid pictures which was what the bride wanted. We cannot wait to see her pictures!

John and I had the pleasure of working with Jacqueline for our engagement photos. She immediately made us feel at ease and gave us pictures we treasure in our home. When we became parents we were thrilled to have her photograph our baby's first year of life. We liked how she captured our son's expressions, joy and laughter. We look forward to her taking our family's photos again and again!

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.

Catalina was an AMAZING photographer! She was really patient with my friends and me, and she helped us with poses and locations the entire time. She made sure we were all happy with our camera time, and she was very punctual and efficient. Not to mention, we hired her on a whim after our other photographer cancelled last minute. But, everything worked out perfectly. Everyone was extremely happy with the results!

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.
