Eugen was a pleasure to work with! He was professional, punctual, flexible and relaxed. He was great with our young children and really got them smiling! Our family portraits are the best we have ever had. Eugen is s true artist and it shows in his final product. We will for sure be using him again in the future!

Working with Kuwan was fantastic. Called for a session and he was at my house the next day (and during the Christmas holiday no less) Spent time getting several great pics for my daughter's acting headshot. Several poses, backdrops, outfits. Had samples to pick from the next day. Prints were fast and the entire job was so much more affordable than anyone else we looked at. Having the shoot at my house was such a convenience. Kuwan was very professional and very quick with communication and a great photographer. The pictures are beautiful. Great experience all around. Will definitely be calling Red Archie for the next batch of headshots and my son's upcoming senior pictures.

Mark and his wife were very professional and cordial and worked well with my son in creating some memorable photos for his senior portrait session. They brought out the best in my somewhat reluctant teenager! We are looking forward to seeing the finished products soon. I would definitely recommend Mark's work.

Lighting with Love Photography provided photography for my daughter's baby shower. The service provided was excellent. The candid pictures were just as great as the posed pictures. Lighting with Love did a fantastic job of capturing the moment. I love the ease in which she worked the event. She was respectful of those attending who didn't want to be photograph and was still able to capture the ambience. I would definitely recommend Lighting with Love and use her services again.

Patrick went above and beyond as our wedding photographer! He was timely and professional, and was willing to stay overtime to ensure that he captured our entire wedding festivities. He took direction well, but also had plenty of his own suggestions as far as posing and helping with family/friend portraits. He was also very friendly and had an amazing personality. He definitely made our wedding day memorable and we received many comments from our guests about how fun he is. After the wedding day, he provided professional quality photos in a timely manner. Upon our request, he also did some time-consuming editing on quite a few photos for no extra charge. We also ordered the signature photobook which we were pleased with and again Patrick went above and beyond by being very flexible and making all requested changes. We are awaiting prints (at a great price!) which we expect will also be lovely. I highly recommend Patrick as a wedding photographer! He will capture all of the posed and candid moments from your big day at a very reasonable price. He will work and communicate with you to provide exactly what you are looking for even after the wedding.

Catherine was wonderful to work with! As expected, I was extremely nervous to have a boudoir shoot, and Catherine made me feel so comfortable and beautiful! The photo shoot is a gift for my fiancee and I cannot wait to give it to him! She was very responsive to my concerns and my photos turned out way better than expected! I would highly recommend her to anyone who may be apprehensive to doing a shoot because they're nervous!! She is great!

We were thrilled with the entire experience. He came out to a family engagement party, and we started with a family portrait of 24 people, ranging in ages from babies to grandparents. He did a fantastic job of keeping everyone engaged and having fun while he got us all in the perfect position. He then stayed past our scheduled time (at our request) and took portraits of individual families, as well as mingled throughout the event capturing all the great moments. Best of all, the proofs are posted online so everyone can choose the exact prints they want to purchase. We received so many positive comments from family members about how fun yet professional he was. I would definitely recommend J Singleton Photo for any family portrait or group event. We couldn't have been happier.

I hate having my picture taken (I always end up looking like I'm stoned) and put off having it done for as long as possible. However, I do contract work for a company that needed one to use in their advertising and the one I sent in was embarrassing, so I finally started looking for someone who could help me. Gil stood out because he had some nice samples on his site. When I filled out the form for a price quote, he was the first one to respond with an individualized message, and his packages/prices were very reasonable. However, I didn't want just a standard headshot. I sent Gil a few examples of what I was looking for and he said he could work with me to get what I wanted. Working with Gil was a wonderful experience. He went out of his way to accommodate my desire for something beyond the traditional. We tried a number of different poses, based on the examples I had sent him. He was very kind, professional and put me at ease. His response and turnaround time on providing me with the final pictures were amazing - he even worked on a holiday weekend to get them to me! I cannot say enough great things about Gil. If you're looking for a photographer who listens to you and really takes into consideration your needs/desires, then he's your guy :)

Our experience with Timeless Images by Susan was wonderful. She made our daughter's feel very comfortable and enjoyable. Susan's open and friendly personality made our daughter's day a special one, and despite a rainy day that postponed our outside photos, we ended up with so many beautiful shots that it was almost impossible to decide which photo was our favorite! I would definitely recommend Timeless Images by Susan to anyone looking for a senior portrait photographer, and we'll definitely be back when it's time for our son's photos!

    Fun, delightful, professional and enthusiastic are just a couple of words to describe our experience working with Carl. It was just a pleasure having him photograph our daughter's party. I never had to "ask" him to take a certain shot, he was on top of it all and went above and beyond any photographer I have ever worked with! With all that said, I have yet to even talk about the AMAZING work he does, and his attention to detail. The time he took to go over a particular photo I wanted edited for a special purpose was unbelievable. I have people raving over my photo's asking me where I got them done. You will not find better quality of work. After working with Carl, you can easily see his passion for his work and his desire to always place his clients in the highest regard. It's too bad you can only rate up to 5 stars on this review, because Carl is worth every bit of 10 stars!!! THANK YOU!!!

      I had the opportunity to work with MaRia in October of 2015. She was the photographer for my daughter’s portraits pictures. MaRia was energetic and enthusiastic as well as focused and hard working. She is truly a remarkable artist with the camera and her personality will brighten anybody’s day and make every session that she captures one that won’t be forgotten.Thank you MaRia for making this such pleasant experience.

        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.
