I am a Realtor in the mid-west area of Michigan, and I had been in search of an experienced, professional photographer to shoot pictures for the cover and spread of a magazine article that I was the featured agent in. After searching local and online, I came across Sherri, and boy have I been impressed. Sheri is everything you want from any service provider! She is energetic, prompt and to the point. She exceeded my expectations in creativity and went "above and beyond" with her attention to detail. She also put time and care into making sure I would walk away completely satisfied. I came to her with pretty much a blank slate as to what I needed, and she filled in the lines with amazing ideas and an in-depth knowledge of how to get me the results I needed. Thank you Sherri, you will see me again!

Stephanie is the most talented portrait photographer available to us mortals-- she knows exactly how to capture the super model beauty in everyone. She provides little tips about how to hold your shoulder or head that not only give her photos the "wow!" factor, she actually made me more photogenic generally. Whatever she charges these days, she is worth 10 times that amount.

I had the pleasure of working with Deb on newborn pictures of my son. I really loved her style shooting us while doing our every day routine. She really captured special, ordinary moments between us. She is very professional, fun and easy going. She makes you feel very comfortable, which isn't easy for a first time mom getting pictures of her baby! Her expertise and enthusiasm shines through her pictures. We love them all! She also took pictures of my husband and I when I was pregnant and we will continue to ask Deb to take family pictures as our son grows up. I highly recommend you include her in your plans for collecting memories of you, your children and entire family.

I had the most wonderful experience with Elise at ModBettie! I was blown away by the beauty of the studio space as well as how easy it was to instantly love Elise. She made me feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful - truly couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Would highly recommend ModBettie to others, I am absolutely thrilled with how my acting headshots turned out; she captured exactly what I was looking for!

I love the way Nic captured our day perfectly. He saw our vision we had for our big day and he made it come to life! I love the way Nic captured the small, intimate details of our day that I didn't even notice until I looked back through the photos. Nic was patient with our bridal party and gave me input on what types of photos I might want to have. I think this is what separates him from other photographers. As I look back on our wedding day, I can almost relive those moments because he caught all the shots at the perfect moment! I love him!

My daughter has been dancing for 12 years now. When she was young, we went with whatever photographer the studio hired and the pictures were always so-so. As she continued with dance, we turned to Sara. We are always very pleased with her work. She captures our daughter's true beauty as a dancer. Sara is very accommodating and willing to work with the client's schedule. She didn't have a problem with shooting at different locations in order to get the perfect shots. The final product is always of the highest quality and I would highly recommend her to anyone who might be looking for a photographer!

    Tyler is a man that gives amazing amounts of effort to his craft. He has a great eye for photography, and takes the time to perfect it. Tyler is a great man to work with, and he'll give his opinion on a shot, but wil take ideas and work with them. If you are in need of a photographer for groups, engagement photos, family portraits or anything of the like, he's the guy to go to. Highly recommended

    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.
