Thomas did a great job capturing our wedding at Wine & Roses in Lodi! Very professional and friendly person. He was never in the way or distracting like I have seen with other wedding photographers and yet he was still able to take so many amazing and memorable photos. Thank you!

Gideon was an amazing professional photographer! My pictures are beautiful! He was fun to work with with great direction. He contacted me before, during and after my shoot. I've worked with some photographers that "disappear" and it takes months for pictures or email responses. Not with Gideon! Professional and super fun at the same time! Thank you so much!

Talented, professional, and flexible. He took my graduations photos from UC Davis and met up with me in the area. He brought his equipment and implemented all my ideas. Overall, open-minded and great to work with. His pricing was cheaper than most photographers and photos were received sooner than I thought. I highly recommend.

Giving 5 Stars to Trendz Team Photography is not enough! Their work has been hands down the most amazing I've seen. As a little girl, you dream of your wedding and you can only hope to find a photographer that can capture those special moments. Working with Samantha and Bao made me forget about worries and realize this is the best day of my life. They went out of their way to work with us to create beautiful pictures for our wedding, and did it in a stress free way! We have found not only life time photographers for our family, but two life time friends. There's not enough words to say just how amazing Samantha and Bao are! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I hired fongfotos to photograph my mom's surprise 80th birthday party at my house, and the entire experience could not have been better. Dara arrived as planned, well ahead of time, to get a lay of the land inside and outside. We discussed the types of shots I was looking for, and she met key family and friends prior to the surprise. Dara managed to capture every great moment from the decor, the guests, the moment my my mom walked through the door, hugs with lifelong friends, the live jazz trio, face-timing with my niece during the party, and much more. It was amazing how Dara mingled with guests and took photos seamlessly for the duration of the party. I would highly recommend Dara and fongfotos.

Justin is truly a talented photographer. He was open minded and patient, and easy to communicate with leading up to our shoot. He listened to exactly what I wanted - candid, non-posed family portraits, and every shot turned out how I envisioned. I'm a fan of natural lighting and composition and Justin's photography style is what drew me to his work. I'm more than happy with our family photos and will undoubtedly be using J.O. Photography in the future!

    I am normally very shy when it comes to photos and they end up all acted out and fake. Natalie is a person that inspires you to show your real self to the lense. She chose the perfect place for me to feel me and feel free in the pictures, she has an artistic eye that chooses the best angles and sceneries, making the pictures natural and beautiful.

    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.
