Elaine took beautiful pictures of my newborn baby girl, along with my little boy, me and my husband. All of the pictures could have not turned out better. Elaine was patient with my newborn baby, waiting for the perfect shot and she was even more patient with my 3 year old! I was truly impressed in as many pictures that Elaine took, it didn't take hours and hours to do. She was very timely and the Shaw's benefited from her great talent as a photographer.

Our experience with Giliane was fantastic. Her instincts for great background was evident especially taking the changing leaves color and our attire into consideration. She understood when our 3 1/2 month old needed a break. She was very thorough with the expected timeline until our photos will be ready. Even though I haven't had chance to look at the photos, I got a very good feeling they will be fabulous. I will definitely have her as our family portrait photographer again.

Mark was excellent. He absolutely knows what he's doing as a portrait/headshot photographer. His studio, setup, and equipment are top notch. For me, the goal of this was to have headsets for the next 5-10 years that I can use in professional environments and on linkedIn. I think having good photos for presentations is one of the subtle details that are important. Mark was able to finalize some excellent photos that I am 100% satisfied with. If I ever to do something else with photography (family photos, etc.), I'd go to Mark first.

The photos Excalibur Portraits delivered were stunning. We would recommend them to anyone needing photography work. The lighting, quality, attention to detail and artistic interpretation were all spot on. Throughout the process all communication was professional, quick and easy. The scheduling, download and payment process were also very efficient.

Working with Jennifer was such a great experience. She was very gentle and patient with our baby girl for her newborn photos. The quality of her work was awesome and she delivered our pictures very quickly. She’s a gem and very affordable, if I could give her more stars, I would!

I contacted Courtney for a family shoot. She recommended the perfect location for what I had envisioned. Because of weather and health reasons, I had to reschedule our session more than 4 times and Courtney was always very understanding and accommodating. She was awesome with my little kids, especially my 4 years old boy who wanted nothing to do with pictures! She saved the day and managed to make him have fun and give his cutest smile. After only a week, I received my photo gallery, which is very fast! Some time I had to wait a month with other photographers. Pictures are terrific! Highly recommend Courtney!

Her prices are very reasonable and she even provides extra copies of photos my family wanted after the fact without any trouble. Thank you, Alanna

We had a family photography session with Jody. We wanted pictures of our daughter who is 10months old with the Fall colors in the background. She was extremely patient and made us feel comfortable. We couldn't get as many fall colors as we wanted due to our timing and location. However, she did a fab job with the pictures based on whatever was available. Thanks Jody and keep up the good work.

Albert is a fantastic photographer and videographer. He captured scenes of our outing to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota, from fish getting into the boat to mirror reflections of the beautiful lakes. It was great to have him out with us for the day. You may also have seen his work with dogs in the field, he has a gift for capturing moments. I highly recommend him for any kind of event or portrait photography.

Verified review

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.

Noemi was the perfect photographer for our family photos. She was responsive, punctual, and personable. She had great ideas for the photos and not only captured our posed shots, but took some candids along the way to really capture our family dynamic. She was patient with our three-year-old when he was ornery and matched our six-year-old enthusiasm. If you're looking for a great family photographer who will make sure to get the perfect shot, definitely hire Noemi.

We have used Steve for friends and family portraits for a few years. He does an excellent job with picking ambience and fine tuning the photographs. But do make clear what you are looking for. Emailing or texting him is best way to communicate. Nice guy.

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.
