Finding Teresa was such a blessing! I found her in the thick if graduation season. Even in this busy time of the year she was flexible and very easy to get in contact with. On the day of the shoot she made me so comfortable in front of the camera (something that I am most definitely NOT). She was patient and open to my ideas for the shoot. After the shoot, she stayed in contact and always let me know how everything was progressing. She put a lot of work into making my final shots the best they could be and I am so thankful for it. It was also very easy to get prints out to my huge family with the website she uses (a definite plus for graduation). Teresa truly cares about those she works with and the product she is producing for them. If you want a fun shoot with a caring photographer, and great photos Teresa is definitely there photographer for you.

I had planned to meet Josh for a shoot at an outdoor location, but there were torrential rains on our scheduled day. So, Josh improvised on site and came up with a great alternative in the moment. He was calm and professional in what could have been a disaster of a day. And in the end, we got a great set of images.

I've always had a great photo shoot with Mistique! Great quality pictures. She's very patient, which is awesome. Because my child doesn't like to sit still very long. I'd highly recommend her to anyone!!

Cece was amazing. I had never met her before, but within 5 minutes I felt like she my best friend. I was worried that it would feel unnatural having someone follow me around all day, but she felt like part of the family. Her work isn’t amazing! She made feel like a princess and her photography shows that. Everyone that had seen my wedding photographs loves them. I will continue to use her for every major event in my life!

Josh is a very creative, imaginative photographer. He spends time learning about the person to discover what interests he or she has such that he can incorporate those into the shoot. His portraits encompass not just the outside of individual, but also a snapshot of who they are as a human being. I highly recommend Josh for any photography needs.

We have had Christi photograph for us on several occasions over the years and we have always been more than satisfied. She really knows what angle will make you look your best as well as keeping color and creative structure to a photograph. Christi has done our engagement, wedding, newborn and our 2 year old's birthday party photos. She is awesome at doing large gatherings and events all the way down to personal portraits, I totally recommend Christi for any photography work!

Robert is an amazing photographer! He is extremely professional and yet he made me feel relaxed and at ease as he captured my unique essence in ways I couldn't have imagined on my own. He took my vision, infused it with his own and, in the end, produced a flawlessly finished product. I recommend him highly!

    Angela has taken maternity, newborn, and family pictures! I have been 100% satisfied with the session itself and well as the finished product. Angela helped me in choosing the location for each session and was very passionate when it came to attention of little details. I would definitely recommend TheArtofFancy to friends and family! Her work speaks volume! I loved the experience!

    I am surprised, for a guy Eric, did not loose composition in covering my baby shower over the weekend, also received fully digital pictures promptly, i almost used my phone for this, but then again it was worth the investment.

    My experience working with Jordan was great. He’s very professional, pays attention to detail, and makes the environment comfortable. The quality of the pictures he took of me exceeded my expectations. I will continue to let him be my photographer.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
