Bryan was awesome in all respects. He responded to my request for a photographer within a few minutes on a Sunday evening. He was friendly and professional at the same time. He was willing to work in the rain. Bless you, Bryan. He photographed my sons senior pictures and he knew more about portrait requirements than I did. It was apparent he had done numerous

I was one of the authors at the Superstars Writing Seminar in Colorado Springs last month who accepted Lauren's offer of a free sitting for professional "bio" photos. I've had professional photos done before, but Lauren made it fun, and captured the "real me" far better than have other photographers. I'm delighted to have these photos to put on book covers. I'll certainly hire her to do photography for me in the future, and I highly recommend her.

Catherine is fantastic, she was willing to make the location and time that I wanted work, which is really important on toddler schedules, especially when we were coming from out of state. She was great with my whole family...several of whom aren't interested in getting their photos taken. My twin toddlers loved Catherine so much, one cried when we parted ways at the end! The photos came back quickly and were awesome. She did just as amazingly with candids as she did with portraits. I cannot say enough good things about Catherine, I hope you'll hire her!

Lemar was so easy to work with. He made my boyfriend and I very comfortable. Lemar has an eye for amazing photography ideas and our pictures turned out absolutely beautiful. I am SO excited and will end up hiring Lemar for future events. He got us our pictures right away and it was so much fun. Hire this guy, you wont regret it.

LIv did such an awesome job with our family portrait photos. She knew the perfect location for the look we were going for, and did an overall phenomenal job! Even with snow and cold weather presenting some challenges for our outdoor photos, Liv handled it like a professional and got us the perfect shots we needed! I definitely recommend her for a personal and memorable experience!

I would highly recommend Lilya of Aquarelle Imagery. I hired her to come to my parent's house over the holidays to take family portraits. Lilya even adjusted her schedule so that she could come on Christmas Eve after i found out that some of our family members wouldn't be there until that time. She was able to create great photos in less than ideal lighting situations. She also was extremely patient while we organized ourselves and had multiple dogs running around and interrupting photos. I would definitely use her again and highly recommend her.

Absolutely amazing to work with! He went above and beyond my expectations for my son's senior photo shoot. My son said he loved the experience, and that is really what was important to me. We will be getting the proofs in about a week and I am so excited. Michael really has an eye for the locations and lighting. I have another project coming up very soon and will definitely be hiring him for it. Classy, professional, nice, and a great photographer five stars for sure!

Rob did a great job with our family photographs! He also took some beautiful professional portraits that I'm using on my LinkedIn and professional website. Rob was extremely flexible and willing to work with all of our busy schedules. On top of that, we received our digital, post-processed photos the SAME DAY we shot them; talk about quick turnaround! Simply put, Rob is good with people, reasonably priced, and produces quality photographs. We will be definitely using him in the future!

Julie is an outstanding photographer! I was shocked when I learned she had her own 'traveling' studio, which was awesome for us when we did new born shots. She allows plenty of time in order to get great shots with my children. I would highly recommend for milestone photos! She has great props and ideas and not once was I disappointed with the outcome. She also took our family, maternity and birth photos! I was a bit sceptical about having a photographer in the room during labor but she was very respectful and professional and I am so happy we did it because the pictures tell the story of our daughters birth. I can't tell you how lucky I feel to have found her. She has become a part of our family ♡

A++++ My home (Bet Kelev - The House of Dog) is done in K9 Judaic and it has been featured in the Rocky Mtn News when it was around. At one time Bet Kelev was to be featured on HGTV - but the series was cancelled. I treasure the oil paintings of my dogs past and present and have a major portrait of each generation gracing the living room wall. I have, in the past, spared little expense on these portraits - hiring 'big name' hotsy totsy well well known photographers. Now please don't get me wrong, I am not unhappy with the portrait of Moolah, Buddy, Ricki and Nicki nor the one of Moses, Elle and Max. But... The portrait just done by Sarah DeGroot is terrific - in a different league. Capturing black standard poodles is no small feat - and the portrait was done in the living room - not a studio unlike the others - and quite frankly far far superior - and far far less costly. (She should raise her rates!) Also note a close friend who represented nationally the Pentax account (when it was Number 1 in the US) who knows photography - was very impressed as doing black dogs 'is very very difficult.' He explained why technically but I still have no idea - other than this is the best portrait of my dogs - period. Photographing black dogs let alone my Sinai Standard poodles (Reb Simcha & Her Ladyship Goodie)is difficult - just think how well Sara would do with even easier subjects and less demanding guardians than this Man of Dog for family portraits Would I hire Sara again?

Alex is an excellent photographer! She did a maternity photo shoot for my husband and I, as well as a mommy/baby photo session when my baby was 8 months old. Both times she was incredibly professional, flexible and made such a comfortable atmosphere for us. The pictures came out so beautifully and natural looking! I highly recommend her!

We were recommended by a co worker to use Jonathan and Jannelle for our daughters' senior pictures. They exceeded our expectations. Our first photo shoot was rained out. They quickly rescheduled to a convenient time for us to re shoot the photography session. Their creative eye for phenomenal picturesque back grounds were outstanding. They connected with our daughter and brought out her true personality in all of her photographs. Their photo packaging and price were very competitive. We highly recommend Jonathan and Jannelle and will call them for all of our photography needs.

Bailee helped us out in a pinch and was wonderful! I reached out to her very last minute and she was able to drive two hours to our location for an outdoor family portrait session. The location was where we got married 10 years ago, and she took great shots near the ceremony and then in completely new spots nearby... that were even better! I think she has a great eye for settings and our photos show that. She was also very good with kids...she was super flexible (as to keep them happy and smiling for the lenses) and sweet - never pushy. Bailee is creative, sweet and reliable. I'd highly recommend her!

Treva is a wonderful photographer. She was able to get my son in for last minute headshots that he needed right away. She was very professional and helpful. You can tell photography and art are her passion. I would highly recommend Memories by Treva.

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.
