We are so happy that we booked our maternity photoshoot with Pilialoha in Oahu! Kelsi and Patrick did a wonderful job of capturing beautiful photos for us that we will treasure for many years to come. Booking: Kelsi was so sweet to work with. She replied to my emails very quickly and provided us with great suggestions on what to wear and where to do the shoot. We decided on Makua Beach, which I would highly recommend as it looks very “Hawaiian”. The forecast called for rain on the day of the shoot but Kelsi kept a close eye on the weather and suggested that we go ahead. She was right and it turned out to be a beautiful sunset! Photoshoot: Kelsi crafted a haku (flower crown) for me to wear and it was more beautiful than I had ever imagined. Again, I highly recommend adding this to your package, you won’t regret it! During the shoot, Patrick and Kelsi were very helpful in helping us pose. They were easy going and friendly so we were very comfortable with them. We had a lot of fun during our hour with them and the shoot was the highlight of our trip! The result: Wow! First of all, the edited photos were delivered to us in just six days! Second, the photos were amazing—I love the colors and the artistic style that Patrick uses. They are unique and look like they’re straight out of a magazine. Kelsi and Patrick did a great job of capturing all the shots that we wanted. The photos really speak for themselves so check out their website! All in all, booking with Pilialoha was a great decision. If you’re looking for a skilled photographer who will produce stunning results, look no further!

I'm so glad we decided to hire Parish808 Photography for my daughter's birthday party to set up a photo booth. Parish and his wife park were both fun and patient as they had to shoot a lot of the 8 year kids. The pictures were high quality plus it was a reasonable price. Everyone had fun taking pictures and it was the perfect gift for everyone to take home. I will definitely be hiring them for future parties.

Joseph is one of the warmest human beings I have ever met, and also one of the most talented photographers I have ever met. With these two traits hand in hand, he is one of the most pleasant people to work with on island. Punctual, precise, professional, and full of good vibes, you won't ever regret working with him!!

Mersadi was pleasant and patient with our group for family pictures. While my toddler displayed a wonderful tantrum presentation, we still were able to get a set of pretty good pictures. Thanks!

Christopher was amazing to work with. He was on time and was always clicking away never missing a moment of my son's wedding. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a photographer. In fact I've already recommended him to my other son's fiance. Thank you Christopher for making it easy and stress free. Take care......

I highly recommend Carr Photography! We have used her several times. Not only will she spend lots of time getting the perfect shots, her editing is amazing. In fact, we had sessions where I thought there was no way we got a good shot and then our pictures were AMAZING. She is great with children and one of the most patient photographers I have ever worked with. She isn't scared to try new locations, props, situations. The best part is none of her pictures look staged like so many other less experienced photographers do. Also, her pricing a very competitive for what you get. I will treasure all the pictures she has taken of our family. BTW, I have 4 kids! Just try getting a good family pic with that much chaos! But Neli can do it and it will be amazing!!

I took a few photos recently with Arielle and my two (moderately well behaved) dogs, which turned out wonderfully. She worked with us, held a toy to hold my dogs' attention, took a few snaps and before I knew it we were done. Arielle is an excellent photographer with a keen eye for location and a natural charisma that makes the process move along easily. Not only does she shoot professional quality photos, but she is extremely personable and easy to work with as well. Thank you Arielle!!

Shaun was one of the photographers out of about 6, for a shoot I was apart of. I was instantly drawn to him because of his friendly demeanor and ended up doing most of the photo shoot with him. He helped build up my confidence throughout the shoot, with his positive and fun comments about how I was doing. He edited pics and sent them to me a day later (pretty darn fast!) & I was very pleased with the photos. I would definitely shoot with Shaun again!

    I have absolutely nothing but wonderful things to say about Sheyanne and her photography! My husband and I are no good in front of a camera, but somehow Sheyanne made us seem like professionals. She made it so fun and was patient with us getting comfortable with the camera, she had great ideas, she was happy and energetic, she had excellent pricing, and she sent us the pictures 2 days later! There are so many amazing pictures my husband and I can't stop staring at! Thank you for a memorable experience and pictures we can cherish and show off forever, Sheyanne!

    Shannon went above and beyond what my husband and I expected. She was fun, creative, and also amazing with the kids in our wedding party. She has such a great vision for what does and you can tell she truly loves what she does and it not only shows in her work but in her presence. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, or for any occasion. Can't wait to work with her again in the future!

    Lemar, his assistant and his wife Dora were so much fun to work with! They allowed my husband and I to be ourselves for both the photoshoot and videoshoot. We had another photographer not affiliated with Lemar and he was forcing akward poses we would never do in real life, where as Lemar had us just walk and talk. They were professional, and most importantly went off our vibes and feelings. I would hire again in a heartbeat!  I highly recommend if you want a videographer and or a photographer (his wife Dora) who will exceed your expectations!

    Dana and I are friends. I've seen her grow over the last few years as a photographer and love her work. So when I wanted to do a photo shoot with my husband before we left Hawaii she was top of my list. I can't lie, my husband doesn't like having his photo taken. So it was extremely helpful for us that Dana had posing ideas ready for us. She also gave us lots of direction and helped us adapt ideas I had to work for us. I was even more happy with the photos than I thought I could be. I highly recommend Dana if you are looking for beautiful photos.

      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.
