I found Rick on Thumbtack after a brief search for a photographer in the Indianapolis area. He responded quickly to my inquiry and we came to an agreement on the services he would provide. He was professional, cordial, and friendly with all of our meeting attendees who needed head shots for social media. We received our proofs for final photo selection within a week of the photos having been taken. We are very pleased with the final shots. I would highly recommend Rick.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Brian for our maternity shoot. Scheduling the shoot was easy. He took the time to chat before the shoot to understand what we're looking for and found a great spot for the shoot per our vision. He was professional and honest. Best of all, the pictures came out great. So impressed that we'll do two more shoots once the baby arrives! Thanks Brian!

Al was phenomenal! Just to give some context, I needed a photographer four days before my graduation ceremony. Al was extremely responsive, and we were able to nail down the details by the day graduation rolled around. My ceremony started at 4:30 p.m., and Al arrived at 3:00 p.m., giving us plenty of time to coordinate the photography. He took great photos before, during, and after the graduation ceremony. He did a great job of figuring out the best ways to take photographs of me and my family, and the photos came out great. He is a very social person, and made me and my family feel at ease during the entire process. Moreover, his prices were very reasonable. He was taking photographs for four hours or so, and I know that other photographers I was looking at charged significantly more than Al. I cannot recommend Al highly enough, and if there was an event in the future that I needed photographs for, Al would definitely be the person I would consider hiring.

Cory did a fantastic job with my family! We included our puppy in our family photos and Cory went above and beyond to make sure we got some great shots! She was patient and flexible. She met us at our desired location, made sure we had plenty of pictures taken, and was flexible about payment options. She was phenomenal. We can't wait to use Cory as our family photographer as we continue to grow our little family!

First off I ran across RC Fine Portraits on groupon & thought I'd give it a shot, and I'm beyond pleased that I did so!! We had Chrissy & her husband of RC Fine Portraits come to our home to take pics of our precious 15 day old preemie baby girl, Avery. Chrissy went the extra mile in customer service and had butterfly wings, angel wings and accessories made for our tiny 4lb baby girl's first photo shoot. Chrissy knew her regular props would be too big for our little one so she had them custom made just for our shoot, which was amazing. Before the big day she emailed me a very detailed list and instructions for how to make a newborn photo shoot go smoothly, from things we should do the night before all the way thru to the end of the shoot. We followed those instructions and our daughter did perfect. Chrissy and her husband we so very kind and gentle with baby Avery. They knew to use hand sanitizer, how to gently move and position a sleeping baby without making her stir or wake. Her props and creative eye sets her apart from any photographer I've ever used or seen. My husband and I were extremely pleased with their work that we've decided to continue using her for our daughters first year photo book. She will come back when Avery is 3, 6, 9 & 12 months! RC Fine Portraits has a fantastic deal on Angie's List for the first you photo album & we took advantage of that. I HIGHLY recommend this amazingly talented duo for baby pictures and or any other picture needs you may have. Price wise they are a little on the more expensive side, but when it come to making these beautiful poses for breathtaking pictures of your children of babies it's totally worth every dollar, money well spent!!! Anther side note they have excellent communication and are a pleasure to work with! They came to our home to take pics and the. Come back to review all photos on your big screen tv or their computer, go over what needs photoshopped and help you customize your photo package so you get the most bang for your buck!!!

Andrea has been amazing to me and my family! In 2013 she took photos of my son and me around Garfield Park! They were awesome! She also has done some amazing boudoir photos for me of me too! Some time after baby I will try to get into one of her shoots again! (But first this momma wants to get back into shape!)Not only that but I recently asked her to be my photographer for my wedding! She said "YES!" She did an amazing job on our wedding pictures and soon enough I will have her do family photos after baby number 3 arrives! My husband and I are blown away at the amazing shots she took at our wedding! Hands down, my best photographer EVER!Something else to keep in mind... She is also very considerate if you inform her of things you don't like, she will avoid those things in pictures! Thanks again so much Andrea! Can't wait for the next picture session!! <3

Brittney has photographed my family on numerous occasions. She always makes us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and has a special ability to grab candid moments as well as posed moments. Brittney has taken photos of us in many different locations. Some were inside and some were outside. Depending on the varying places she's shot us at, it's as if I can see the wheels turning in her mind and she comes up with these brilliant ideas to embrace our surroundings. Not only does she capture us, but she also captures our environment within the photos which just adds that much more to the memories caught in the snap shot. She is very well rounded and has photographed everything from Boudoir photos for me to give my husband as a gift, to our wedding day. She's also taken our child's 12 month photos, she was the photographer at his birthday party, she captured life moments in our first home before we moved, and also maternity photos in our new city prior to the birth of our second son. I can't say enough about her artistic visions. She can find the beauty in literally any situation it seems. When I receive the photos after our sessions, I'm always blown away by how many great images she's given me to choose from. There's not enough wall space in my home for everything I'd like to hang! I could go on and on about how great my experience with Brittney Way Photography has been each time we've worked together. That's why we keep going back for more!

I thoroughly enjoy my experience working with Paz photography! I was looking for a photographer to shoot some professional shots for my re-designed website for my business and I was overly impressed with her work. I had a concept of what I wanted to do but Briana went above and beyond to turn my concept into reality. She was prepared for the shoot, very knowledgeable in the various camera angles and lighting to catch the perfect shots. Thank you again for helping to make my business a success and I will definitely use Paz photography in the future.

Kara was my lady knight in shining armor. The photographer for my wedding backed out two weeks prior to the big day, and I was totally panicked. I was put in touch with Kara by a mutual friend. She made it clear that, though she hadn't done a wedding before, she was willing to do the research and put in the time to make it happen for me at an incredibly reasonable price. Kara was so sweet from the beginning and so much fun to work with. I'm in love with my photos and will definitely be going back to her in the future.

Sally Wolf is not only an amazing person, but a professional that takes pride in her work. She took great photos of my family and my wife in her maternity dress. She even took suggestions on poses to use from our seven year old, which turned out to be phenomenal ideals. She was very punctual, responsive, and is worth every penny. We will definitely use her again for our infant pictures and hope to retain her as our family photographer for years to come. Thanks Sally and we cannot wait to see the pictures!

Mark was great to work with at Proline Photography! He was very prompt with all communications and the delivery of the final pictures. I work at a youth sports sponsorship company and we needed someone to go and take pictures at multiple baseball fields of players in our sponsor's jerseys. Mark was flexible with game schedules and was open to interacting with league coaches/families on-site. Our sponsors were highly satisfied with the pictures and we'll definitely work with him again in the Indianapolis area!

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.
