They are amazing photographers and we couldn't be happier with the photos. Their price is low and it is an incredible value. They were so down to earth and easy to work with. If we ever need a photographer again we will use Meraki Photo. I will strongly recommend them to friends and family.

AMAZING!!! I got proof prints and DVD of the shots of my baby shower two weeks after my Baby Shower day. All I want to say is amazing!!! I can't even express how much I love the photos. David is truly a master. He is a very friendly, at ease person. He is also very easy to relax around as he is taking your picture. All of his techniques and skills are essential for those photos. We feel so lucky to have David to be our Baby Shower photographer. He kept our best memories into the photos and I will never forget these moment. Thank you again David for capturing our special Day!!

I hired Kasey of KLH Photography to do a photo shoot for me for a portrait I'd use in business and for my business cards. I didn't want to do a typical head shot and had a pose in mind. Kasey came up with a couple of different poses and shot all the different ones so we could compare the best one. I was extremely happy with the results and with Kasey's ideas. I certainly would recommend KLH Photography to anyone looking to upgrade their image and looking for a new look! Joe Kapell

Any photographer can just take a picture; Elise on the other hand makes her pictures come alive. She has an eye for making breathtaking images. She made me feel comfortable and gives excellent directions for the perfect shot. As they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Elise made me look and feel live a million bucks!

We could not be happier with our choice to have Studio Rivy photograph my daughters wedding! The photographs we have seen so far have been absolutely stunning and I can't wait to see them all. Studio Rivy is so easy to work with and the team was very friendly and fun. I did not know photographs could be so moving... they are very skilled at their craft and just a delight to work with.

We are so fortunate to have our maternity shoot and newborn photos done by Travis as well as our birthing photos done by Jenn. ... Travis really took the time to find the best locations in the park and set us up for the most flattering maternity photos. The newborn photos Travis took were beautiful as well, we took them in our home so they were very personal to us. Travis was great with our 10 day old baby! Jenn's pictures of the birth truely captured the emotions of the day and allow me to look back and remember the day vividly! They will be something we cherish forever. Travis and Jenn are a great team!

It was absolutely fantastic working with Lisa Klapyk Photography! Lisa was professional, prepared and lots of fun. We hired Lisa to shoot some photos of our son for his 1-year milestone, she also took some photos of the entire family. The location she chose was absolutely beautiful, Lisa arrived before us and scouted out the perfect backdrops for our portraits. She had an assistant with her, who was prepared with toys to keep our son smiling, and focused on the camera. They were both really good with our little one, and patient. My son, usually cries at the sight of strangers so I was surprised that he smiled and laughed at Lisa and her assistant. They really knew what they were doing. Lisa provided all the necessary props, including some letters that spelled the word "ONE" and a little chair and table for our LO to sit at. We opted to do a "smash cake" which was messy and fun. Lisa was even prepared with paper towels and helped us get everything cleaned up. I would recommend Lisa to all my family and friends, she is professional but more importantly she is kind and a joy to work with. Our photos came out beautifully, we have them hanging all over the house and guests compliment them all the time. Thank you Lisa for a wonderful experience and beautiful memories!

I had the chance to be a client, student and a friend of Peter Paradise. Before I met him, my photography was on the downside Peter's passion has replenish my mine and since then, there's always a little of him in my pictures. He's a great source of inspiration, he's a master. He's also a great friend. I always learn a lot shooting beside him. As a client, I enjoyed the sessions with him even if I had no modeling experience. He always make thing easy for the model. A good relation with the model is for him a priority. A shot with Peter is always relax and fun, even if you don't have any modeling experience. The results are always fabulous. I don't know a photographer that is more passionate by is art than Peter Paradise, he's a wonderful artist. He has a style of his own, his pictures are timeless! Overall, his a prince and you don't want to miss the opportunity to do a photoshoot with him. I would definitely recommend Ravenwolf Photography to anyone who needs a portrait, pictures from a dance event, a wedding or anything else!

Our family has fantastic photographs to treasure. We are a family of 8 (3 generations) and Dot captured individual personalities with each photograph. She worked very well and patiently with our age span (older and younger adults, teenage boys and young ladies). We spent 2 hours in her studio (the weather was against us for outside shots), and everyone felt happy with the experience. Additionally, the time that Dot spent helping us pick out our favorite photographs (there were so many) felt as if it was above and beyond her professional time. We are tremendously pleased with our family photos, and highly recommend DDrobney Photography.

When we were planning our wedding, we made the wise decision of hiring Gary Bendas as our photographer. What, initially, attracted us to Gary (among the many photographer services we looked at) was his reasonable wedding package rates and his personable, accommodating, and detailed customer service. However, our decision really proved itself after our wedding, upon viewing our photo album and then receiving our beautiful wedding album. We, actually, loved the photography so much that we continued to call Gary for more prints. We recently ordered a new portrait for our last wedding anniversary. We highly recommend Gary Bendas for his photography services at Majestic Photo.

I've used Heather Ellicott Photography for recital photos at my dance studio for years. Heather's positive energy works so well with the children and the photos always come out beautiful. I've also personally used Heather Ellicott Photography for baby and family photos. These photos are displayed around my house and I will cherish them forever. I would highly recommend Heather Ellicott.

Aaron Collins is amazing!! We hired him to capture our daughters senior prom photos. He picked an amazing location (old stone church) and really used the space great. The photos were of my daughter and 4 other couples, yet we managed to get family portraits, best friend pics, and pics of our little one as well. The editing, quick delivery, and amazing eye that Aaron has made the day so fun and amazing. You will NOT be disappointed!

Courtney did a family portrait for us at Harkness Park. She came prepared with locations that had just the right lighting and interesting backgrounds that did not distract from the family. All of the pictures were sharp and captured the family dynamics well. We were very pleased. I would recommend her services to anyone. Rick Chew

It is a pleasure to work with Justin. His photos are beautiful and creative. He works well with children and always gets a smile! Beyond his artistic talents, he is thoughtful, attentive to detail and very kind. Earlier this year, Justin volunteered his time for a Halloween fundraiser to benefit the Wilton Community Assistance Fund. The fund provides support to families experiencing short term economic hardship. He provided families with beautiful portraits in exchange for donations to the fund.

      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.
