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!

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.

Mike O is the best photographer to have for any special occasion or photography session. He was on early and on top of all the details. There was no set schedule for his time. Mike made sure to be there for every moment of my wedding. If there was a request he was so flexible and fufilled it while giving his professional opinion. My photos turned out gorgeous including the samples he gave us as a gift. Unlike most photographers he dedicates his time unlimited to you and gave us a copy of all the moments. His pricing was less than any others and the quality even better!! Many of my guests complimented on how interactive and hilarious he was as well.

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!

I have seen many photographers before.Actually, I am really picky with every single thing that I wanna do or buy, but, but, he is the one whom you can ly on him with no hassles.we had 3 hrs of fun and enjoyable photo-shooting with him and, I really happy for choosing him between other photographers .our photos are amazing and speechless.I really love ,love ,love.... my husband is a very uncomfortable guy with these kinds of stuff like photo-shooting, but at the end, he told me we should have more session in future and it was shocking for me :))definitely I and my husband will have more session in different seasons with him, as long as we live in St.Louis. I highly recommend him to any couples who looking for a punctual, professional, responsible photographer with a calm session, and amazing photos... :)

As an event planner, I need a photographer that can capture the essence of an event with little direction in an editorial style. Now You See It Photography does an exceptional job with capturing moments and not just taking pictures. The owner, Richard, has a unique eye that frames the beauty of every moment. He is my go to photographer.

WOW! I couldn't have imagined our photos being any more beautiful then they are!! Lyle Whitworth came to Washington, Missouri with his team and really outdid themselves! They captured the entire day perfectly!! From individual photos to whole group settings, capturing the light in different ways so that each person was in the perfect position. If you are in the market for a photographer, choose Lyle Whitworth Photography! You will be glad you did!!

Stratmann Pictures did some AMAZING family photos for us. I hate getting my picture taken, but they made it a smooth and easy experience. The photos look awesome, couldn't be happier. They might be the best pictures ever taken of me, I can’t remember the last time I was happy with a photo I was in. I wish we would have found them for our wedding photos, especially since the prices are so reasonable. We'll be back for more photos and we'd recommend them to anyone who needs a photographer.

Kirsten has a great talent. She iis easy to work with, gives direction while making you feel comfortable in front of the lens and has a remarkable eye for "the shot". Although on every shoot we've ever done, she has managed to get many shots that work, something not every photographer has the ability to do. Her experience and creativity are helpful whether you have an exact idea you're looking to capture or you're still putting together a concept. Love working with her & you will too!

Rene was amazing for maternity and newborn photos. She was understanding and helped us figure out what worked and what didn't. She also genuinely cared about our baby and if she was uncomfortable during any photos. I would highly recommend Rene for any type of photographs.

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.
