I spent a lot of time researching photographers for my daughters senior pictures. I called a few of them to ask questions to make sure they could accommodate mine and my daughters needs. Upon calling Carl Gerace from "A moment in time photography" I instantly booked the session with him and our search was over, he was the first and only that made me feel that everything we were asking for, he was willing to make it happen. We had the session this weekend and I couldn't be more satisfied with the overall experience. My daughter is very shy however, felt extremely comfortable with Mr, Geraces personality and the ideas he had for different poses and location suggestions that he knew would create beautiful photos. Due to the fact it was for Senior pictures and we only did about 40 shots, he was able to send me the link to the photos THAT NIGHT! I knew they were going to be amazing and I was super anxious to see them, so being able to get them that fast was exciting. Every photo was perfect. From the clarity to the color, the background and the different poses was everything that her and I were hoping for. He knew what to focus on to make her "pop" in the photos yet still have a beautiful background that wasn't too much and didn't take away from her. I am so thankful that we chose "A moment in time photography", he made that moment one to remember as my daughter starts her journey into her senior year. I have included two of the many beautiful shots for you to see for yourself what an amazing job he did.

I had Pete at Eagle 1 Photography take photos of my daughter for her Senior Announcements and was so pleased with the photographs. He allowed us to get the shots we had in mind and also had many great suggestions for shots and poses. Petes love for photography truly shined through in our session. He gave our session ample time, was very kind, very professional and exceeded our expectations. Thanks again Eagle 1!!

Stefan (and his assistant) were fantastic & amazing and I can't recommend them enough. The bride absolutely loved them & said they made her feel completely comfortable & relaxed and they had a lot of laughs as well. 100% professional & thorough - we could tell they were constantly working over the 9+ hours, yet very good at blending in like ninjas. When it came time to do our bride and groom shots, they had already scouted the locations & gave us great guidance of how to stand and pose - much appreciated, as I look like a big nerd from about 95% of angles. "Tilt your head this way, put your hand there, etc" Very helpful! For the price, I feel like I should have paid 5x as much but could never have afforded that. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer - thank you Stefan!!!!!!!!

They were willing to work with me on a very tight schedule, and did incredible work, despite the inclement weather. Very easy to work with, and a quicker than expected turn around on the photos. They are great!

We hired Sam for our maternity and newborn photo shoots. Sam is very flexible with scheduling and prompt in replying back. We had a fabulous collection of maternity photos taken at an outdoor location suggested by Sam. We liked especially how she had both of us participate in the photos. We were thoroughly satisfied with our maternity photos. For the newborn photos, she is very patient. She also had props for our little boy based on marvel and DC comics characters which we liked. She was prompt in giving us the edited images and it was easy to download. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for maternity and newborn photographer in the area.

We had a great experience working with Tara for on-location family pictures at a historic museum in Buffalo! She was extremely professional and experienced, which was especially important for our family as we chose to drive from Toronto, Canada to meet Tara for the first time and do a photo session. Above all, she was also very competitively priced especially against local photographers in Canada. We would definitely work with her again (she provided all of the "negatives" as well!)

I've done many photoshoots with Daqwan, he's an amazing photographer! My favorite thing about working with him is that he's very laid-back while still being professional. This creates a fun, relaxing atmosphere which results in the best possible photos! He always knows how to get the most flattering angles, and knows the best locations for photos. I highly recommend Daqwan Koenig as your next photographer.

    Steve is the utmost professional who prides himself on his work. He took some professional photos for my business and they were exactly what I wanted. He aims to please and asks for feedback to ensure everyone is on the same page whereas other photographers I’ve worked with will only pick and edit their favorites. He does great work!

    Kim is amazing to work with!!! She is professional and talented!!! She is very responsive to email and text, which was critical because we are from out of town. She took our pre and post wedding photography for our wedding. We originally only had her scheduled to do our pre-wedding photos but last minute I wanted post wedding photos as well and Kim graciously accommodated this last minute request!! The sneak peek revealed stunning photos and I can't wait to receive the rest!! I highly recommend Kim and any time I'm in need of a photographer she will be the first person I contact!!!

    About

    I believe what really makes me stand out is my personal interaction with my clients. I have seen so many photographers that while they take a great picture, their people skills are lacking. I spend a good portion of my time in schools, you have to be top of your game to work with kids, teachers and parents day in day out.

    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.
