We had such a lovely time with Steve and ended up with beautiful photos that we will cherish forever! He made us both immediately comfortable and did things to make our personalities shine in our pictures. From start to finish, he was extremely punctual with communication, and was so helpful with recommendations for each step of the process. I highly recommend using Steve for any of your upcoming events!

Lu with Collazo Photography took baptism photos in April 2013 for my then 9 month old daughter Claire. We also had other shots taken as well in our backyard and they were all AMAZING! Great shots, very creative, wonderful and patient with a very busy, hard-to-keep-still baby! Could not have been more pleased with the service and the photos!! We had infant shots done when Claire was 5 weeks and I so wish we would have known about Lu back then. She is definitely our go-to photographer from now on!

Jen has always been there to capture every stage of my life - from our wedding (she flew from NC to Puerto Rico to shoot our wedding), maternity shoot, to the birth of our baby boy. I called her the day he was born and she came to the hospital the very next day! She was so excited to capture his first picture! She's so professional, always responsive, and punctual. But what I love the MOST about Jen is her creativity! I plan to use Jen exclusively for years to come!

After years of photos and photographers we finally had a photo we loved and felt like we could display and share with our family. Phil knew exactly how we needed to be posed to achieve the result we wanted. He also has taken some wonderful pictures of our granddaughter, property and our dogs. We were totally happy with Thalheimer Photography and highly recommend them.

Stephen is the reason why you hire a photographer for a wedding. Even at last minute he was able to provide quality pictures that are amazing. He is professional and easy to work with. He was such a professional that my wedding planner hired him on the spot for another wedding. Hire him and you will not be disappointed.

Delia met with myself, my wife, children and extended family to get some group photos done in Wake Forest, NC (Joyner Park). She was excellent wrangling the masses! It is always great to see a photographer with professional gear and setup (even though we differ in taste of brand!)! We would highly recommend Delia! Thank you!

David did a great job! He was super flexible in going to a less than convenient location, he did a GREAT job not including all the people (which I thought would photobomb us) in a busy public park.... he even was able to get some really sweet photos of my toddler post-temper-tantrum (and hid the fact we were using an Elmo YouTube video to calm him down!)

Couldn't be happier I hired Jessie! I did a boudoir photoshoot with her and I'm thrilled with the photos; they're stunning and exactly what I wanted. She really listened to what my vision for the shoot was while giving her professional guidance and direction. Not to mention that I had so much fun taking them. I was pretty nervous before the shoot, but Jessie was so friendly and really made me feel comfortable. She even helped me get ready and after the first few pictures my nerves were gone. She's a talented photographer who was great to work with and I highly recommend her!

Visual Collaborations did an awesome job with my daughter’s senior pictures! They were punctual, and they made her feel very comfortable and confident. I love the fact that they take both traditional and not so traditional pics because they truly showed my daughter’s personality. If you’re looking for a photographer that goes above and beyond then you don’t need to look any further!

Rebekah worked patiently with my newborn throughout this session and the turn out was beyond beautiful. She took her time and created the perfect set up. My little one, just days old; didn’t make it easy but she was still able to catch plenty of heartwarming shots. The editing job was outstanding. Rebekah shared a special moment with us and and made it a comfortable experience. It could not have been more perfect.

    Janine has been working for my company HTY Jewelry as marketing manager and newsletter editor, I can't say enough good things about her great works. She's been helping me to grow my e-commerce presence for a little over 4 months now, such as marketing strategy development, monthly newsletter development and editing, blog post editing. She always makes sure everything is up to date and never misses her deadline, so I can really focus on running my business. I'm sure she will be your company's great asset if you are willing to give a shot! 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
