The entire experience with Mary was really great from start to finish. She was friendly, professional and most importantly, genuinely passionate about what she was doing. Mary was punctual and she was immediately polite, reassuring and excited. We took plenty of photos at City Hall, while walking to the subway, during the ride and then finally at Central Park with some great fall colours in the background. The pictures came out great and we loved talking to Mary and Ali, who were courteous and professional at all times. Mary was really generous with her pricing and took into account the fact that it was just my wife and I. Unlike a lot of quotes from other photographers, hers was one of the few that really reflected this fact. We highly recommend Mary.

As a project manager for a magazine, I have to book photographers in cities across the country, not knowing anything about them. For us at the magazine, it's always a risky operation because we don't have an established relationship with most of the photographers, plus we're always under tight deadlines, AND we can't physically be at these photoshoots. When we found JoAnne, we booked her that day for a shoot the following day. When I spoke with her she was so professional and so bubbly I felt like I could trust her with our clients immediately. This totally put my mind at ease considering all the bad experiences we've had in the past. When we received the photos from JoAnne, the quality of photos was amazing and the shots were exactly what we needed. JoAnne even went above and beyond the count that we asked for which gave us a lot of variety. Our magazine looks great because of J Richards! If we have to book a photographer in this area again, we will be coming straight to her.

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.

Beth is an incredible photographer and person. It was my first time having headshots taken so I did not know what to expect. I felt at ease during the whole session; it was truly a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Beth took a variety of angle shots so it was just not limited to the standard headshot position. The photos came out very professional and natural which was what I was looking for! I highly recommend Beth for anyone looking to have their photos taken for any occasion. Thank you so much, Beth!

I loved every minute of my session with Philicia. I'm a tough critic when it comes to my pictures because I've taken pictures with a lot of photographers, but she was the best photographer I've ever had by far. Not only was she great at giving suggestions but she also combined both of our visions which seems to be really hard for photographers. It's either they don't give any direction at all or they overpower you with their suggestions, but Philicia did neither. She was the perfect balance. I didn't even know my pictures could come out so great! It was truly art. My portraits came out BEAUTIFULLY! My family loved them and I wouldn't shoot portraits with anyone else. She was simply wonderful and I can't wait to shoot again. My birthday's coming up and already we're thinking of great locations and outfits. I'm so excited to do more!

It was real pleasure to get the images from this company. Hassan is a brilliant photographer and the photos that he took for us in our wedding ceremony came out so vivid and beautiful that I couldn't believe; truly the photos were beyond my expectation. This kind of sincere work and dedication is very rare these days; I honestly recommend this company and Hassan to anyone who are looking for some talented and brilliant photographers for any occasion.

I'm not really one who likes taking pictures but I needed some professional headshots. I received a few quotes and after reviewing profiles and websites I selected Dominick. I really liked his work and all of his clients looked great in their pictures. I wasn't disappointed. The photos he took off me came out great and I rarely like my photos. I had a hard time choosing the main picture I would use. I highly recommend Dominick. He's professional, prompt, and most importantly, a magician with the camera. Yes. Smartphones come with apps we can use to pretend we're photographers but Dominick is the real deal. Insta-what? I highly recommend him and I'll be a repeat customer for sure.

Alena is wonderful and excellent in photography. Just did maternity photos and she sent me the link for the gallery in a timely manner, in very high quality. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Will likely end up doing all other photos (newborn, etc.) with Alena.

It makes all the difference in the world when you’re working with someone who’s experienced!! We never take professional portraits and he made us feel very at ease and comfortable. Our 20 month old daughter was all over the place and Dave took his time got to know her played with her and was just the best of the best!! We will be using him again for our impending son’s arrival newborn shoot, and for several projects going forward! He’s truly an artist and knows exactly what to do and how to do it! He came early and stayed late seeing how my husband and I were running behind due to complications earlier that day, and he didn’t charge us extra or make us feel rushed, he was completely understanding to our situation. He’s truly a professional in every sense of the word! We can’t wait to see the final photos I’m sure they will look amazing!

We absolutely loved our entire experience with Natalia. She responded very quickly, and stayed in touch after we confirmed the booking, sending us suggestions for the locations, and inquiring about our ideas and themes for the shoot. Her communications before the meeting show her genuine interest in ensuring her clients get what they want and need out of the shoot. It was very easy to spend an hour with Natalia, while taking pictures. There were no awkward moments, and the setting for the photos happened very naturally. Natalia is also really great at giving you a quick sneak peek at the photos during the session, that way if you see that you loved the composition, but hate your face or pose in it, you can quickly re-do it. No later than 12hrs after the shoot, Natalia responded with 120 proofs, of which we could choose 40 to be retouched, and available for download. She returned the final, downloadable photos 3 days after we finalized our selection, which is super fast for photographers. Because Natalia lets you peek at the photos during the shoot and select your favorites out of the preselected 120, you end up with 40 photos that you absolutely love, and you can use all of them (no blinking or hair in your mouth). Overall, we highly recommend Natalia for her professionalism and great photo quality, and hope to have a chance to work with her again!

Maryann did a great job for my daughter’s birthday party. She arrived early to take pictures of my daughter and friends dressing for the party and the reception room. She photographed practically every guest present. Maryann photographed right up to the end party. I received 500 photos. Great quality.

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.
