Dan did an outstanding job with my real estate listing photos. I had a photographer cancel at the last minute and Dan called me immediately was not only able to keep the same exact day for the photo shoot, he sent me the photos within 12 hours of the shoot. The photos of the home are incredible and I will most definitely call Dan for my real estate photos in the future. I'm impressed!

Charnell worked with us both on family portraits and candid shots at our family reunion. She was extremely easy to work with throughout the process. We had a wide age range from young children to elders in their 90s, and she drew out smiles, laughs and great pictures from everyone. She showed a great sense for both backgrounds and personal expressions of style, and was quick to run with ideas that anyone in our group had. Another great thing about working with her was the quick turnaround time on the pictures and the easy process for allowing everyone in our group to see all the shots. That was a pleasant surprise relative to some of my prior experiences with photographers. The photos were so bright and fun that a few family members who were unable to attend are now more eager to make the next reunion! Overall, working with Charnell was an outstanding experience.

Z is an excellent photographer. He listened to our needs and was able to capture the memories we were looking for. Z made an extra effort by visiting with me at the event location the weekend prior to the event. Identifying ideal locations to take the photos we were requesting. I would highly recommend Z as a photographer for your next event.

Where do I even start... I went in recently to get my maternity/family photos taken with my toddler son who was not very cooperative and Lacy still managed to use her creativity and take great photos. I thought for sure it was going to be a disaster with my "threenager", but with Lacy's personality, patience and expertise, it went great. She makes you feel welcome and not rushed. In addition, I love how she uses an online photo gallery for you to review (you pick the photos you want and she edits them). I've used other photographers where they want you to come in personally to view photos and like the online photo gallery much better. I received the online photo gallery and my edited photos within days - she's quick! Cannot wait to get my newborn/family pictures taken!

Nicole has a very good eye for candid photos and does very well with posed shots and new ideas. She took some great photos of me with my baby belly. She had great ideas and welcomed my ideas as well. She took her time and really thought about how to make a shot look good.

Andrew and I feel lucky to have shared such an intimate day of ours with such a beautiful and genuine person. One of the photos Mariah took on our wedding day, is already hanging up on our bedroom wall. A constant reminder of our happy day, it speaks a thousand words! She captured even the most everyday scenes from around our home, Andrew hopping on his motorbike to meet me before the ceremony, with the washing hung up and garden shed in the background. This has become one of my favourites as it's the perfect snapshot of our lives on that day. We cannot recommend Mariah enough, she is an extremely talented photographer, with a wonderful eye for capturing the small things.

      Jude did an Amazing job for us!! He was friendly, personable, flexible and professional. I met with him prior to the wedding to work the details out, and what type of pictures we wanted to see. He also provided me with helpful suggestions that other wedding couples have enjoyed pictures of in the past, which allowed us to decide what we really wanted to see for our end result. He did a great job communicating to us his process: when he would be there, time he would be finished and price. I specifically wanted rights to all my photos, which Jude supplied to me at a great price on a flashdrive and photographer's letter giving me permission to print them wherever...whenever. He was very flexible with our wedding day schedule. We had a traditional Catholic mass so he took several pictures before, during and after the ceremony. He worked with our desire to not see one another until the ceremony itself which helped to make that moment all the more special for each of us. He even was willing to go out of his way to a separate location where my husband proposed after the ceremony prior to our reception (which was a good 45min - 1hr away from the ceremony). He did an exceptional job of not only capturing the traditional shots of our ceremony and reception, but also the candid moments such as our grandparents doing pushups in order to have us kiss (We were trying for something different than clinking glass). Overall, I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with Jude's service he provided. You could truly tell that he loves what he does. My husband and I enjoyed his work so much that we frequently hire him for doing photos of our children at their special milestones. Plan to engage his services again for our next child expected September of 2016!!

      Perry is extremely professional and most importantly very fun to work with! He helped us think through some details that we would have overlooked and helped us think through our timeline as well. That’s not what I would have looked for in a photographer but speaks to how Perry operates as a professional photographer. He captured our wedding the way we were hoping and even made us go outside in the snow for some extra fun shots :)

      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.
