We hired Rayleen to do our newborn photos and we had an amazing experience. She was professional, respsonsive and made us feel comfortable during the shoot. She wanted to capture candids and didn’t want the photos to be too posed which I appreciated. She delivered beautiful photos and we are so pleased!

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.

Marc made us feel very comfortable during this new experience. Unlike other photographers who offered us an hour time limit, Marc told us that he would be willing to work with us as long as we wanted. He was very accommodating and especially responsible. He has a very candid style which is what we were looking for.

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 normally dont write reviews but Oleksandra is just worth writing one for! She's one of the nicest and very professional photographers I got to work with. I onboarded her on such a short notice (two days before my wedding) for my wedding and she was very proactive on communicating with me and my husband and art directing the shots that she needed to take. I am very very pleased! And I can't wait to see the processed photos from our wedding in a week. She's awesome! HIRE HER PEOPLE!

Scott is absolutely incredible! We booked him for our wedding in Nov 2017 and just finished our engagement shoot with him yesterday! He was so easy going and it was very comfortable to have our picture taken (something my fiancé and I are quite awkward about). The pictures came out incredible and we couldn't be any happier. We are so excited to see what Scott captures at our wedding! For anyone debating between Scott and another photographer: GO WITH SCOTT. He is the perfect balance of an amazing photographer and someone who seems like a great friend. You won't be disappointed.

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.

THE BEST BABY PHOTOGRAPHER IN ALL OF FAIRFIELD COUNTY, CT and WESTCHESTER! WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! I researched dozens of baby photographers before deciding to go with Elizabeth and her partner Mike. Most places I called were either WAY over my budget or they did not seem to care about understanding my needs. From the beginning, Elizabeth really took the time to listen to what I was looking for and she came up with countless creative ideas that I hadn’t even thought about. On the day of the shoot, she came extra prepared with all sorts of cute and artistic props that really made all the pictures unique and beautiful. She suggested different areas around our apartment that would be the best for lighting and demonstrated an exceptionally high level of photography knowledge. Also, she was extremely patient and really seemed to know how to make my baby feel comfortable throughout the entire shoot. In the end, my husband and I couldn’t be happier with how professional and prepared she was throughout our entire photo session and the photos she took couldn’t be more perfect! My husband and I will treasure these photos for our entire lifetime!!!

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our son’s big day! Tom made us feel comfortable right away. He is professional and a pleasure to work with. We are extremely happy with the quality of his photos and so happy he captured all the great moments in such beautiful photographs. My favorite are all the wonderful candid shots he was able to capture. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone who is looking for an amazing photographer for their special event.

Great photographer, even better person. So glad I hired Emily! She was flexible, patient, and even helped sooth my baby along the way, allowing her to capture just the most incredible photographs. She was worth the investment. Truthfully, you couldn't put a price on her work- simply priceless.

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.

I have had multiple photo shoots with Lauren including myself and my 9 month old daughter. Every single time she never disappoints, the pictures come out beautiful and natural. Her studio is to die for, she has any set up you can imagine (and props!) I would recommend her to anyone. She works so well with my daughter to get some great shots and also makes you feel comfortable and beautiful while shooting. I'm so happy I found a photographer like her in my area!

Macrae took great updated headshots for about a dozen people at my office, as well as a group portrait and a portrait of just me. The photos are extraordinary, and help us maintain the professional image that we need as financial consultants, both on linkedin and on our website. Each headshot really has a unique personal touch that I haven't seen from the photographers we've used in the past. I can see my employees' personalities shine through.

Very satisfied with the level of professionalism and pictures. Really recommend this photographer to everyone. He can literally make any image in your mind and make it into a reality while making it fun at the same time. Very respectful and detail oriented. Great prices, great pictures and great guy to work with, what more can you ask for?!

Christina did some reconnaissance of the area before we met with her and she had a great eye for the scenery. She helped us capture moments of the greatest day of our lives. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a friendly, patient, professional and committed photographer who loves what she does.

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.
