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

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!

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 hired J. Concepts Productions to photograph and document our baby shower and were very pleased with the high level of professionalism and service. The photos were sharp and they captured the spirit of the event. The Vimeo photo montage was also fantastic.

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.

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.

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.

We hired Corey for family portraits for my husband's side of the family and then reached out for him to work with my side of the family. His responsiveness and turnaround was only surpassed by how well the photos turned out! Next year we will be working with Corey for our holiday pictures again.

Yanira was an amazing photographer. She photographed my daughter's 15th birthday and captured every important moment beautifully. She was professional and was so willing to do all I had asked of her with grace and professionalism. At very late notice, I asked her to come early to photograph my daughter as she was getting ready and without hesitation she granted my request, was prompt and went right to work! She is reliable and was outstanding at capturing every detail of our party including pictures with family members and friends, flowers, decor, all the special moments I would have never thought of! She left no detail unnoticed. The pictures are of the highest quality and perfect! I would highly recommend her and I am definitely using her again! I am grateful for having the all the special moments so beautifully captured by Miss Yanira!

This probably sounds weird but I would probably go back to Greg again even if the photos had turned out mediocre. He’s just such a fun and funny person to hang out with and his calm easygoing manner just made me feel so relaxed--which is the opposite of how I usually feel when being photographed. And his studio is right at the beach so that also made the whole vibe add up to a big stress reliever, nothing like shooting with the sound of the waves. His furry assistant is also one of the cutest, sweetest dogs I’ve ever met. And the photo portraits, that I’m using for acting and social media, are the best ever taken of me, so you add it all up and I have to highly recommend Greg!

Most wedding photographers will not get your photos for months and I even heard of a year, but Stephanie was able to produce our wedding album in a month. When I received the preview folder I was honestly worried about the quality I had seen in her other work. When I seen the final wedding album it was beautiful and I remembered why I was excited to work with her . I would definitely recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for a good attitude photographer.

Forrest did a commercial job for and his attitude and work were fantastic. He made the subject feel relaxed, his energy was great and the shoot was professional and fun. End result, beautiful and artistic images. He put in substantially more time and effort that I could possibly have expected. I just hire him again, to shoot my personal headshots and portrait photos for my professional use. Forrest made me feel totally at ease and he made the shoot fun. Love the photos and hight recommend him. He is a pleasure to work with and a motivated and talented photographer. Great photos, responsive and fast results and super professional. I highly recommend him on all levels.

Nicole did a wonderful job! My husband and daughter hate getting their picture taken, but she made them feel comfortable and happy. She got the job done quickly and took a great variety of candid shots and the posed shots I wanted for our family/pregnancy photos. I asked for a lot from her (different poses and places around Huntington Beach) and she did everything I wanted in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend her!

I used Craig's services for a new portrait. He is an artist supreme. His attention to detail is superb. I have had quite a number of family, friends, and patients comment on the quality of the photos. Craig made it incredibly easy. Beyond just being a photographer, his personality lends itself to putting his subjects at ease, which makes for much better photographs. I highly recommend him for any photography needs.

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.

The quality of Philicia's work is spectacular! When I checked out her work on Instagram, I loved all of her portraits and had to have her photograph my model headshots. I'm so happy with the results! I even heard back from two modeling agencies! Philicia, thank you! I will be sure to contact you when I need to update my digitals!

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.
