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!

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.

Fahim took care of my daughter's wedding like a Pro! I'm very blessed to have had him taking care of my treasures! He captured every moment and he was open to every suggestion that we came up with. He came right on time and stayed until the very last precious moment was in his camera. He offered us a great deal by adding his book with the pictures of our choice and the DVD and flash drive. We even asked him to take the pictures of a baby on board of them later on! Thanks soooooo much Fahim! God bless!

Alex IS AMAZING!!! Talented, patient, soft spoken, flexible and super creative. We are not much of a photogenic people on the first place, and my husband doesn't really like to take pictures. But our photos turned out better than we hoped every single time! And we are so happy that we've created wonderful memories to look back at thanks to Alex. From lovebirds photo shoot to maternity, to baby pictures and family portraits, Alex was able to capture incredible moments and details. And he is so good with capturing kids! Those moments of sweet smiles and silly giggles that you can almost hear through the picture are priceless. We had wonderful time every time we took pictures, I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love. I can't say enough of how happy we are to have Alex as our photographer. Now with another baby coming up in super exited and can't wait to create more memories. I would highly recommend Alex! You will not be disappointed!

Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but not knowing what the results are from the vendors you choose can bring the plans to a standstill. That's where I was before finding Jenn on thumbtack. When she replied to my photography request it was not the estimate that made up my mind; it was the fact that she answered my call! After the first two minutes speaking with her, I knew I found my photographer. Jenn was very upfront with what I could expect from her for the price she was offering. There was nothing that she didn't cover in terms of her contract, the deposit, and the final product. I liked Jenn from the very first moment I spoke with her. Every step of the way she worked with me either by telephone or email. I was fortunate enough that our schedules allowed for a site visit where we had the opportunity to meet in person prior to the big day. Jenn brought her camera and took some "test" shots that she posted on her blog. All I can say is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Now I was excited for the wedding day! September 3rd finally arrived and I am still bragging to anyone willing to listen about my awesome photographers. Jenn and Shannon were truly a dream to work with. They are super relaxed and not worried about the "perfect picture" but photographing the perfect moment. Jenn and Shannon let my hubby and I call all the shots as far as who and where. Our families were a bit difficult to gather at times, and I worried this could irritate the photographers; not Jenn and Shannon! They made sure that we did not miss our sunset photos and always asked our thoughts on their creative visions. Every once in awhile, Jenn would give me a sneak peek at an amazing shot she just captured! I loved that about her. Anyone thinking of hiring Kept in Time Photography by Jenn & Shannon Mormon will not be disappointed. Their photos are stunning and they are two of the nicest people to work with. I am more than satisfied with the entire experience and will be using them for all future photography needs. Highly recommended by a very happy Bride!!

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.

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.......

Thank you Avant-Garde for capturing the most important parts of our event!!! Not only was our engagement beautifully photographed, the little details that most photographers leave out were not missed. His pricing is very fair and affordable. I have him booked for my upcoming wedding in May as well.

Adam is--without question--the most professional, artistic, dedicated and delightful photographer! Our non-profit organization has benefited enormously from not only the exquisite product Adam delivers, but his generosity of spirit (and wallet!) and innate kindness and zen. I cannot recommend him highly enough, both as a photographer and a human. --Shaun, ADL

I can honestly say I am throually impressed with Samantha’s photography skills. She formed the most beautiful background out of almost nothing to make the most beautiful pictures of my family. I will forever be greatful for the photos she created. Not to mention she made my children feel like models so it was fun, not a hassle, didn’t get upset when I was late, and was oh so patient with all my animals including my sassy dog that has no manners! If your in the market for a photographer for any occasion I definitely recommend her!

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.
