Darin was amazing! Very professional; had great ideas where photos should be taken. I was looking for a more modern look for professional head shot for my new business; Darin accomplished this and made me feel totally comfortable in the process. I had the choice of six photographers and after reviewing their portfolio's I chose Dear Hart and so glad I did! You will not be disappointed!

We hired the Film Perspective to do a photo booth for our wedding reception. Our photographer did a great job. He had a variety of props and all the guests had a great time. The best part was seeing all of the images on the disc after the honeymoon. The BEST part was watching video messages from our dear friends that stayed later and recorded them. We would recommend the Film Perspective for your photo booth! We would recommend the video portion be available earlier. All in all a great experience!

Patrick self-directed a few on-location shoots for me and provided excellent results. He worked to make sure he understood exactly what I was looking for, and delivered everything on time and within budget. I'll surely look him up again should we need a photographer in the St. Louis / NE Missouri area again. Eric Harms Art Director - All American Magazine (American Family Insurance)

Verified review

After a great first experience with Karen's photography, I have asked her to do our family portraits annually for the past six years. Unlike previous photographers, within 4 days Karen gave me a disk with ALL THE PHOTOS. I like to decide which quirky look is typical and endearing on a child, something a photographer can't know. Since I got all the photos I had great fun playing with cropping them and choosing which to frame. She has done Senior Portraits, formal groups and my favorite are the very informal settings. I will call her again and again.

Verified review

We have had two photo sessions with Brook and both produced the most amazing photos of our children. Brook managed to get multiple fantastic pictures of everyone looking at the camera. The images captured were a natural - not posed - look. Also, the background and lighting were superb even though we chose outdoor settings. We plan to have our family photos taken by Brook every year!

Verified review

Mark has shot many photos for us, including portraits of our son and photos for our destination wedding and reception. He demonstrates a range from traditional to fine art, and anything in between. He has mastered the use of natural lighting to give his photos personality and presence. The quality of his work and attention to detail are second to none and the variety he is able to offer to clients from a single photo shoot is impressive. Mark’s “urban nature” fine art photography is also present in our home on a larger scale. From tabletop, to portraiture, to location photography, Mark is able to capture the true nature of his subjects in a distinctive and artistic way.

I absolutely loved working with this photographer! He did an amazing job coming up with poses and creative ideas. I had him come to do a photo shoot with me and a group of friends and it was such a fun and relaxed day. He was quick editing and getting them back to us, and was always there to answer any questions. I would 100% recommend him to anyone needing pictures!

    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.
