Tina was exceptional! Her photographs of me for my photo-shoot came out fantastic. Tina was professional, honest, relaxed and exceptionally kind! She also helped suggest positions, cloth and hair which all helped improve my photos significantly. As much as I enjoyed the session, I couldn't have been more thrilled with the results. The photos are better than I had even dared hope for! Sebastian

Winstead is an outstanding photographer! This was my very first photo shoot and he prepared me for it exceptionally! He recommended the type of attire I should bring, he recommended how to pose, which stances to make and when! In the end, the pictures looked prolific! Crazy part is, you get so much outstanding service and his price is the most competitive out of all the other thumbtack photographers recommended to me! Save yourself the hassle and stress--hire Winstead and you'll be glad you took this recommendation! Be blessed!

There are good photographers, there are excellent photographers, then there are GREAT photographers- Doug Sanford is in the latter group, & I speak from experience having dealt with many photographers in L.A. & NYC. Bring Doug onboard, describe to him what you’re looking for & let him show you his interpretations. You will be very pleased. Of that I can assure you!!! ;<)

I am extremely satisfied with my portrait photos taken at Monumental Arts by K. Since I hadn't had a professional photo in awhile the process and options were well explained. There was no rush which allowed for a relaxed session. When I asked, great suggestions were given on my accessory choices. Besides taking great photos, providing numerous pose and background options Monumental Arts provided outstanding customer service. They responded immediately to my emails and texts. The online review and purchase process is so easy. BIG THANKS to ace photographer K, who later quickly helped on a rush order.

My resident holiday party was an absolute success! The residents really enjoyed their keepsake photo's of their family and friends. It was an Ugly Sweater themed party which made it even more memorable! Josh was our Photo Booth Operator and he was super professional and very accommodating to all of our guests. He showed up on time and was incredibly engaging with every guest! Thank you so much and we will for sure reach out to use Party Favor Photo again and again and again!

Josh has a unique eye for photography and I love that he is not your typical portrait photographer. He captures moments more naturally through candids rather than formal poses. His photos as a result are more true to life. He's great to work with, super responsive, and very accommodating.

Verified review

After a couple years of making volunteer appearances as Santa Claus, I decided to "go professional". A friend recommended Chris Paulis Photography for taking portraits to publish on my new web site. Chris went above and beyond my expectations, before, during, and after our scheduled photo shoot. Once the portraits were published on my web site, talent agents were highly impressed with the iconic images that Chris was able to capture and the resulting opportunities for me to portray Santa Claus were amazing. Most of my clients attributed their interest in my services to the heartwarming portraits taken by Chris Paulis.

Outstanding customer service from start to finish. Hassan went above amd beyond to get the images we had wanted, was unflappable in the face of three kids under five, and even made fast friends with our girls. We have worked with several different studios and independent pbotographers for newborn and family portraits in the past and have never been quite this pleased with the end results or the experience as a whole. Higly recommend!

Working with Visuals By J. McKenzie was a delightful experience. I am not one usually comfortable in front of a camera, but today I felt valued, suitable and excited to be the subject of my own lifestyle portrait photos. He was prompt, attentive (from first contact on Thumbtack all the way through photo day and beyond) and professional. I would highly and repeatedly recommend his services and will do so at my next opportunity.

Hire him!! Elmo was phenomenal. My wedding gift to my best friend the bride was the photography. It was nerve wracking to take that on as I did not have a referral and chose St. Elmo solely based on the website and reviews. Elmo is an expert at putting people at ease, blending in with the crowd, getting natural shots as well as posed photos. When I need a photographer again, I will hire him. I recommend him without reservation . You will not regret it.,, hire him...

He came to my house to do some portrait-type photography. I appreciated that Joe was relaxed and friendly and didn't seem rushed. I got the photos back from him very quickly. He was helpful in suggesting good backgrounds as well. I was very pleased with the end result. I think he'd make a great family photographer also.

Rachel is a real pro - if you are looking for beautiful, real, crisp, clear portraits, engagement and wedding photos, family photos - anything - look no further. Rachel instantly made me feel at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to guide my fiance and I to capture authentic and natural photos. She is brilliant at using natural light, too. We could not be happier!

We hired Lizzy to help us take pictures for my father's 90th birthday. We did a lot of family portraits and singles. We also used Lizzy to take pictures of the event. Lizzy was sweet and very professional. She suggested many ideas during the picture taking process. She was very patient with my father who moved slowly. Thanks Lizzy you were great.

We used Talah for our newborn photos and she was so great to work with!! She did amazing photos and was so sweet with our little girl! She had a lot of props to choose from and really had an eye for poses. We had even sent her some looks we wanted and she made sure she had those props for us, so we could have the looks we wanted. I would highly recommend her for your photos. We plan on using her for all our family photos!!

We had a small, intimate wedding at our home on 02/17/18 and the memories were perfectly captured by Ezekiel. He is creative and passionate about his work, you can see it in his photographs. From the ceremony to the after party, all of the important moments were snapped in a beautiful, artistic manner. Ezekiel showed up early, was professional, and did not disappoint. We are having a reception this coming June and Ezekiel will be returning to photograph for us and my husband & I cannot wait! Also, it snowed the day of our wedding which left me worried thinking we wouldn’t be able to get great pictures outside. The pictures in the snow were the BEST of the day!

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.
