My experience with JZ studio was absolutely fantastic! I did a family shoot that included a newborn baby and the photographer was more than patient with us to get the photos we wanted. The pictures turned out absolutely amazing. I will definitely be working with JZ studio in the future for all my family pictures!

Carrie was wonderful! I told her where I wanted to take pictures and she just ran with it. She picked places around the area to shoot photos and came prepared with ideas. It can be challenging taking pictures with a one year old but she was flexible with us and our baby and the pictures turned out great. We will definitely be using her services again.

Visual Ettiquette's lead photographer, Emil, is an AMAZING photographer and choosing to work with him was one of the best decisions about our wedding!!! My wife and I hired Emil to shoot our photos for our recent wedding in Downtown Chicago. First off, Emil is hands down a great guy who talked with us over the phone before the wedding discussing all the details of our wedding day and offered up some great suggestions for where to shoot around the city. On the day of the wedding he promptly arrived on time, even with all of the crazy Chicago traffic that morning. His warm heart, charming personality, and artistic eye made shooting with him super fun and relaxed. Shooting with him was actually one of the highlights of our day when we went around Chicago getting photographed in the snow around Grant Park and the Planetarium. I can still remember Emil running around (yes actually running) in order to find all the artistic angles to take our photos. He even stood on frozen Lake Michigan to get us the best shots of what ended up looking like photos the wedding photos of our dreams. Oh yeah and for all this, he is 1/4 the price we were quoted by other artistic photographers. Emil gets my wife and I's highest recommendation!!! If you want top notch artistic wedding photography that is still affordable, Emil is your guy! I never knew my wife could be such a supermodel until Emil photographed her!

Kathy took a four generation picture for me. The youngest was one year old and in need of a nap. You would never know it from the pictures. She captured some precious moments between great grandma and the baby. She mimicked a four generation picture from the 1920's when the current great grandma was the youngest. I highly recommend Kathy. She is friendly, professional, helpful, captures great moments and is open to suggestions.

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. She made me feel comfortable and it was easy to express myself! All the pictures turned out amazing and I have never been more satisfied in the results! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!

I am absolutely 100% satified with Martika P. Gartman Photography. I have hired many Event Photographers for both Family and Church Events over the years. However, I must say that Martika P. Gartman Photography is the "best" Event Photographer that I have ever seen with my own eyes. She knew "exactly" how to pose and line up persons for photographs. She took her time, and the Event photographs are excellent "keep-sakes" for everyone attending the Church Event to hear my daughter, Dr. Sheri Prentiss, give a presentation about her newly published book," WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGED: MY JOURNEY FROM PHYSICIAN TO PATIENT", an inspiring book about Dr. Sheri as a breast cancer survivor. Thank you, Thumbtack Staff for making the "contact" between myself and Martika P. Gartman Photography.

I've had headshots done in my past with not so great photographers so when I was looking of a new photographer I was feeling kinda worried about who to chose but I am beyond thankful my friend recommended Mike Sansone Photography to me! Such an unforgettable experience. Mike is very good at what he does and makes you feel so comfortable/ confident behind the camera! Needless to say if you need new headshots done I highly recommend Mike!!

After meeting with several photographers, she was the ONLY one my wife and i liked. Her professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses, super creative and pictures came on time.Geraldine has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I have ever met, and I was absolutely honored to have her play such an important role in my wedding. I can't recommend her enough.

This was my first time hiring a professional photographer and it was a great experience! He responded quickly, I told him what I was looking for and we set our photo session. I originally just needed a few shots and I walked out with more and better ones for my website. Nice studio, fun colleagues who helped out and great shots Dov! Would come back again in the future.

We hired Chicago Portraits for our wedding and we are so happy that we did! They were very responsive to our needs for multiple events and communicated with us every step of the way. We had Bharani as our photographer, who was eager to understand our vision. We first had a phone conversation to see if Chicago Portraits would fit our needs and once we decided to move forward, Bharani made himself available to meet in person prior to any photo shoot to go over the details. He was very flexible and accommodating to our schedules. Also, we aren't the most comfortable couple in front of the camera, but the photographers put us at ease and even offered suggestions for poses. They were very patient to capture the best photos possible. We're extremely pleased with the results. We intend to hire them again for future events and would highly recommend them to anyone else!

David took my wedding and newborn baby photos. He is a true creative genius and created amazing and unique photographs that will be treasured for many years to come. He is extremely patient, has a great eye for detail, and he made my newborn sleep in minutes! He made sure we were on the same page every step of the way to ensure we would receive the photos that we wanted while adding extra shots that we also fell in love with. If you are looking for the best, look no further!

The experience with Chris was fantastic! Not only is he a consummate professional, but he made the experience so fun, easy and positive. Unlike most family photographers, there was nothing staged. He just let us play and talk, and captured the most magical moments of our family being ourselves. I would highly recommend him to any family who is tired of standing by a picket fence or in front of a backdrop for their family photos. It is truly a unique end product that you will treasure!

At first we were much reluctant to select Soo as our newborns' photographer as we could not see any reviews online like we normally see.But after contacting him and seeing some of his work with newborns we decided to give it a go. So It was a great experience and a hassle free one for our baby and us as parents.He was well occupied with all the nice and unique props.Praises should go to him and his assistant who is well experienced with newborns.They were so patience,dedicated and professional toward the work. So after couple of days he sent us the edited photos, which proved that he has an artistic eye.We love the pics he had taken.Not to forget that he gave us a very reasonable price as well. Further we saw some of his studio settings ,which showed new ideas for family photo shoots with siblings as well. So definitely we are recommending Soo for his work and looking forward to go back for some pics when our baby is a toddler.

Our family session with Meg was so fun despite the cold day! Meg made us comfortable and relaxed as we played around the park with our toddler. The pictures came out beautifully and captured the fun we have as a family. Meg was responsive to our questions and the turnaround time for our photos was quick. We absolutely love our pictures and show them off to our family. Thanks for capturing this fun moment for us, Meg!

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.
