Mark is a wonderful photographer - I am very camera-shy and am prone to taking cheesy pictures, but he helped make the process comfortable, natural and fun. Pictures turned out great - couldn't be happier! Would absolutely recommend to anyone. Thanks, Mark!

I cannot praise Ivan highly enough. I needed an author photo for my novel & I HATE being photographed. Ivan was as kind & intuitive as he was professional and helped me through the process. By the end, I was actually having fun. He is a gifted portrait photographer with a background in fashion photography. He was wonderfully patient in guiding me through the process of emailing photos to my publisher. I highly recommend him!

We engaged Bob Keene to photograph our daughter's Bat Mitzvah in 2015. Bob was fantastic! We discussed logistics in advance, and Bob was on his feet the entire night, taking many candid photographs that really captured the evening. Adults and children were relaxed in his presence - we hardly knew he was there until we previewed the terrific results. Thanks Bob!

Jeremiah was a pleasure to work with from our very first contact by email. I researched photographers available to photograph our 40th wedding anniversary vow renewal extensively. I loved the work in his portfolio and the finished product lived up to all of my expectations. We were a small group of 9 people but wanted every minute of our celebration photographed. Jeremiah was present for the entire 6 hour celebration and just melted into our small family group. At the same time, he was very professional and we often forgot he was there taking photos of everything. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

We hired Igor for a family portrait for our Christmas cards and the pictures came out great. Igor worked great with our 4 month old daughter who wasn't in the mood to take pictures, but he was very patient and very easy going. He is also very responsive with quick turn around. We highly recommend him and look forward to using him again in the future.

Kristen is the BEST! We were so pleased with our son’s newborn photos. They are absolutely beautiful! We had previously booked another newborn photographer who ended up cancelling our session. I was beside myself thinking we wouldn’t be able to get pictures of our son! But Kristen was able to get out to our house within three days of our contacting her! She is professional and timely in the editing process. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Would recommend 100%!!!

Hannah is an amazing photographer! She took photos of my fiance and I at Boston Public Garden and we were amazed with the photos. She was prepared for the shoot and had great some suggestions. She was also open to ideas that we had. She was extremely responsive, getting back to me within minutes most times. She sent the low res photos very quickly after the shoot and high res edited photos the day after we made our selections. When I showed the photos to others, someone actually said that they looked like magazine quality photos. I would highly recommend her.

From the very start, Karine was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive via Thumbtack and very flexible with regards to scheduling appointments. Her pricing is excellent, much more reasonable (in my opinion) than most other people that you'll find. On the day of the appointment, she was punctual and ready to go from the start. She was receptive to our ideas about what we wanted for our shots (family portrait with an infant) and was creative in suggesting her own ideas. The pictures that she sent us were magnificent, and we will cherish these captured memories for the rest of our lives. We highly recommend Karine to anyone who wants excellent shots, professional behavior, and great pricing!

We've been lucky enough to have Catherine take photos of some very special moments in our lives including our wedding and a portrait session with our young daughter. With her wonderful eye for detail she was really able to document every aspect of the wedding from the small details we'd created for the event, to the emotions and expressions we shared with our guests. Catherine really captured the essense of the day and we will forever cherish the memories she has preserved for us through her photos. As a portrait photographer she put us all at ease wh She put my daughter at ease right away so was able to get her true expressions. We will always cherish these photos that really show

Jeremy was so fun to work with! I hired him as a surprise gift to my mom on her wedding day and she just loved him. He was timely and got everything in that we hoped and more. He was very flexible and even stayed a little after the scheduled time so we didn’t miss any good photos too which was really kind. Truly a professional and I would pay for his services again anytime!

Lindsey was incredible to work with. I have never had so much fun at a portrait shoot and I have never been so happy with the results. Extremely professional and energetic, she puts joy into the process and it shows in the final product. I highly recommend her for people who are uncomfortable being in front of a lens, or don’t have much experience doing so. You almost forget you are taking pictures at all! Will definitely work with her again in the future.

I've used Adrianne for both portrait and event photography, and had nothing but excellent results. She is supremely responsible and professional, and her images are stunning. Using her photos in my publicity and marketing campaigns has been an invaluable asset, and helped me cut through the noise to boost visibility.

    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.
