Mary and Ali are the absolute best!!! I was beyond thrilled with the amazing photos these talented photographers took at the birthday party. Mary and Ali were great to work with and made us, the guests and the families feel completely at ease. They were able to capture all the emotions of the day and every single time we look at the photos of the party, we are able to feel all those emotions once again. I can't wait to work with them again!!!! I cannot praise them and their work enough!

Joe was wonderful to work with. He arrived early, and was set up and ready for our event before the start-time. He made his way throughout our crowd of employee and took a lovely mix of portraits and candids. He managed to capture every employee in a few pictures. They turned out beautifully, and the team is so excited to have pictures to remember the night. Quick turn-around time too. Thanks so much!

Steven did an amazing job! You can tell that he's very dedicated to his work. Our first phone conversation he said "if you don't look good and I don't look good" and I've never heard a photographer say that. Most of the photographers that I've met are doing their job for the money, but I can't say the same about Steven. He spoke about has craft with passion. He made me feel so comfortable, and he knows exactly what he's doing. If anyone is looking for a photographer who specializes in headshots, reach out to Steven immediately, you will not be disappointed. Thank you so much Steven!! I'll definitely be recommending you to all my fellow actors.

Jeff is an exceptional photographer. family pictures can be a bit overwhelming especially with 2 kids under 5, but he made the whole process smooth. He gave good direction, was pretty patient and outgoing with the kids. The pictures are beautifully candid, you can feel the emotions in them. Can't wait to work with him again!

We love Emily. I hired her for a family portrait photo session and she worked well with my toddler and newborn baby. She is very professional and pleasant person, she listened and gave suggestions of how we can have our photos taken. My husband and I were both happy with the photos she delivered after 2 days. We will definitely hire her again for more photo sessions in the future.

I honestly cannot say enough about Marijana and how great she is. My fiance and I, originally from North Carolina, were visiting New York City for the weekend and wanted engagement/portrait type photos while visiting; so we hired Marijana just a few weeks prior to our visit. From the time we met Marijana, she made the session and process so easy for us! We absolutely loved it! And LOVE how the photos turned out. She was so easy to work with! Her attention to detail and finding the perfect light made our photos perfect and we are so pleased with our experience. Not only that, we also feel like we made a new friend in New York City! Thank you so much, Marijana! We now have pictures that will last a lifetime! -Jenna and Erik

Kevin was wonderful to work with! Very easy to set up the family photo shoot. He arrived on time with all his equipment. He was very patient and engaging with my three little ones (5, 3, & 2 years old) as well as the dog! He captured everything I had asked him too and delivered the pictures on time! Such a relief to not have to chase a photographer down to get your photos. Thank you Kevin for taking such perfect family photos of us at our neighborhood NYC spots. We will forever remember our time here thanks to you!

I'm an author with a small press, which means I get to pull things most big publishers won't let you get away with. One of these things was picking my own cover models, and I had two local teens in mind. I wanted a photographer who did more than just your general portrait and event photography, because these had to be character shots. So I wanted someone with a great sense artistry, and Tom's portfolio (which include some fantastic fashion and actor shots) was really the only one in the central Jersey area that I liked. To say Tom was great to work with is the understatement of the year, but despite being a paid wordsmith, I don't know how else to put it! Fantastic to work with? Amazing? Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? He really went above and beyond what I expected, providing vision for the project that an untrained eye like me would never have thought of. And two teen models had a great time with all the interesting poses Tom came up with. Tom was great at coaching these two aspiring kids and turning them into bona fide models! And not to mention just very friendly and great at making the teens feel at ease. I was on set (to watch and give a input about the characters), and the whole thing was both very professional and a lot of fun at the same time, which really is the best way it could have gone. Tom was really quick about editing the shots and putting them through post-production too - I was impressed by the quick turnaround. And they looked fantastic! My publisher and I were very happy. I would definitely hire Tom Castles again should another occasion come up, and I certainly recommend him and his work.

Couldn't have asked for a better person or photographer to take pictures on one of the most important days of my life. I contacted Matt to take photos from afar of my proposal. He met me at the park before hand and we went over what I was looking for and he walked me through where he thought we could get the best pictures and truly capture the special moment. He was a complete professional and was very easy to talk with as well. He sent me the link to my pictures within a few hours and I couldn't be happier with how they came out. Matt will certainly be my first call in the future if I need any photographs and I highly recommend him.

From start to finish ACG entertainment was a pleasure to work with. Everyone at my wedding had such an amazing time and had so much fun taking pictures with the photo booth. The open setup and picture props gave us the best pictures of our guests! And we absolutely loved our photo book with everyones photos and messages to look at at the end of the night. Overall everyone was extremely professional and went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect.

Laura was amazing! She took the time to get every shot just right. While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible! She is a sweetheart. She’s been great at doing light retouching. Nothing drastic. My agents are thrilled, and so am I. I will definitely go back to Laura!!!

I could not have asked for a better photographer to work with for my daughter's birthday, during which we asked Elizabeth to capture photographs of the event along with several family shots. She produced a gallery of such amazing photos that captured the essence of each special moment. Elizabeth has a true talent, being able to make her clients feel comfortable and relaxed, with a calm and patient manner, so the whole experience is fun and ultimately produces excellent results. She is so skilled with understanding the right lighting for the best images, and gives great guidance on positioning. I also truly appreciated Elizabeth's dedication to make sure we get the best shots possible. Because the lighting was not optimal during the time of the birthday party, she offered to come back later in the day to get the best family shots possible. This really showed her commitment to her work and generosity with her time! Either way, the photos she took during the birthday and after were all just beautiful. I am so glad we decided to work with Elizabeth to capture these memories. Thank you Elizabeth, would definitely hope to work with you again!

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.
