So glad I hired a professional to capture family portraits and our daughter's baptism! I'll admit I was on the fence b/c everyone has cameras on their phones these days, but everything from our first contact down to receiving the proofs, I knew it was the right decision. Lenny was accommodating and easygoing with my last minute planning and lack of preparation. I'm thrilled with the photos...I would hire him again without hesitation!

Mike did an excellent job photographing our family for the first family portrait in years. He provided great assistance on suggested settings and composition, including one that turned out to be the best which none of us had thought about. Great experience, would use him again and referred him to others

As a former photographer, who have been taking pictures for over 25 years, I must admit that this company’s skills and professionalism surpassed my expectations! I highly recommend 95Images for any event!

Abbe was fantastic ! She made my husband and I feel at ease and laugh throughout our shoot. Despite less than desirable scorching weather, she took time to fix our hair, pat us down and worked her camera magic. I'm extremely meticulous and picky and can easily fixate on any one thing and she surpassed even my seemingly insurmountable expectations. The pictures turned out great! I cannot say enough good things about Abbe. I'll definitely be calling her once our child is born. I wouldn't want anyone else taking our family portraits and pictures. Thank you, Abbe!

From my first encounter on Thumbtack, Matt was friendly, helpful, and respectful. I have not hired a photographer or had professional photos done since my thirty something children were tweens. Matt answered all my questions and was responsive to requests and ideas. He was not familiar with the location I wanted to use, but he was open to anything. He explored the location in advance of our appointment and offered suggestions for our photos. He offered ideas and collaborated with us regarding our needs and desires for groupings. He took a variety of photos with different groupings Within our family. He was patient with our grandchildren, a strong minded 2 year old and 3 month old. He was personable and spent time getting to know us before beginning the photos. He was creative and professional. He was LGBT friendly. I would highly recommend Matt for informal photos of your family. The professional skills he presented should carryover into any photography session, informal or formal. Thanks Matt!!

Amanda did a maternity portrait session for me. She accepted the job on very short notice and was very flexible when I had to change the dates around. She agreed to come to my home and was very punctual. She made myself and my family feel at ease right away. The photo shoot was not too long, which was good because it allowed my daughter to not get tired. By the next day I had some preview photos which I was really happy with. Received the whole set of pictures 3 days after the session I would definitely hire her and her team again!

I have to say that my experience with Willam was very disappointing. From the beginning he was hard to get a hold of and was never available for calls or meetings. I understand that we all are busy, but isn't meeting with clients how you maintain your business? I always had to reach out to him to see what the status was with our engagement and wedding pictures. Because William was so busy, he didn't even shoot our pictures. The photographers that we decided to go with through him were beyond amazing! It felt like they actually cared about creating this amazing moment for us. William never called to ask how the session went with the other vendors or if we were satisfied. He was always quick to ask for payment but not quick to provide great service. Again, after receiving my wedding photos there was no follow up to see if I was satisfied or if I had even gotten them. The whole process was sad. I wish I would have gone with the actual photographer that shot our wedding. I would have been willing to pay more for her, she was definitely worth it. She was kind and asked questions that William never even bothered to ask. It was concerning when the photographer mentioned her surprise that communications were lacking from William and she was shocked at the level of service that we were getting. We had to ask for a few sneak peeks from our wedding almost three weeks after the wedding. Our photographer mentions that this what she normally does two to three day after and it is something most photographers do as well. Only after sending William an email asking him about this did he send us anything. While we did get a great price for our photos, I don't believe that means that we should get a lower experience. If we weren't worth his time he shouldn't have taken us on as clients. When a bride is planning her wedding the relationships that she forms with the vendors can really enhance or complicate the experience. This experience in all was just very sad.

Vikrant has consistently gone above and beyond his job to satsify me and my family. He demonstrates how excellent his customer service, just as much as his love for taking the photographs. I've been to other photo studios before and notice the lighting looked bad or the photographer had a "get you in and out" attitude. But when I went to Vikrant Studio I've seen him work with customers and demonstrated his expertise in all aspects. If you don't like how the photograph came out he often goes an extra step to help. Vikrant is clearly a “people” person and shows his clients how much he likes working with them.

Elizabeth is one of the most naturally talented photographers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Her visual intuition and compositional mastery lead to her capturing strictly unique moments. Her work shows proficiency and an understanding of technical photography. She consistent;y identifies thematic and narrative elements in her portraits, which leads to a greater resolution of her subject as a whole. I cannot recommend a better professional photographer.

Thank you, John! We booked John just a few weeks before my son's Bar Mitzvah to do a portrait/family shoot at the synagogue. John showed up on time, worked well with the family, and in addition to the standard shots we listed, took a few "in the moment" shots. Those are some of my favorites!

I appreciated how professional and what a great value all the pictures were. We hired them to take family portraits for us and he came to our home, set up quickly and took great posed and candid shots of our family. 2PK also was very patient with getting shots of my precocious boys and easily distracted dog! We ended up selecting more candid shots from his large display of pictures then we did of our posed ones. Will definitely use 2PK again!

We had an amazing experience with Nicokam Photography! The photos Nick took of our family are absolutely incredible. He captured such wonderful little impromptu moments in addition to taking beautiful portraits. Not only was Nick professional, kind, and punctual, but he was also super patient with our toddler and he managed to get amazing shots of him in action-- not easy to do! We loved the whole session and we are so happy with the end result! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

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.
