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!

Needing a corporate portrait, I reached out to Thumbtack to hire a professional photographer. Being somewhat camera shy, I knew it wasn't going to be easy. I received about 5 quotes and spent time going through their reviews. I was quite impressed with how many great reviews JoAnne received. Upon going over her work, I decided to give her a call. I shared with her about my shyness and that I was my worst critic and probably not going to be that easy to work with. She assured me, I wasn't alone and that it would be no problem. Just talking to her on the phone was calming and reassuring to someone as "camera shy" as me. Well, from the moment we met and all through the photo shoot, I felt at ease. She spent time getting to know me and I felt very comfortable throughout the shoot. It was rather fun! I feel that I overcame a fear of sorts...a great feeling in itself! I unequivocally recommend JoAnne Besides all of the above, the images are AMAZING!! The color, the clarity and the poses, all put together made for one beautiful corporate portrait. Thank you so much JoAnne, I will be recommending you to all my friends and family needing a professional, highly qualified photographer. With much appreciation, Mary C

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.

Marc photographed my sweet 16 and the pictures came out amazing! I was originally unimpressed with the photographer that came with my DJ and I'm so glad I found Marc instead. He is so nice and is knowledgable of his art, equipment, etc. I believe the price was very fair and the photos came out wonderful. He did his job as the photographer by not only taking photos but also telling us all how to pose and where we could photograph. He made sure to bring assistants, multiple cameras (with different lenses), and proper lighting with him to create the best photos possible. I'm so glad I have such awesome photos (and different types) to share with my family and friends!

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.

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!

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 loved every minute of my session with Philicia. I'm a tough critic when it comes to my pictures because I've taken pictures with a lot of photographers, but she was the best photographer I've ever had by far. Not only was she great at giving suggestions but she also combined both of our visions which seems to be really hard for photographers. It's either they don't give any direction at all or they overpower you with their suggestions, but Philicia did neither. She was the perfect balance. I didn't even know my pictures could come out so great! It was truly art. My portraits came out BEAUTIFULLY! My family loved them and I wouldn't shoot portraits with anyone else. She was simply wonderful and I can't wait to shoot again. My birthday's coming up and already we're thinking of great locations and outfits. I'm so excited to do more!

Hassan is an amazing photographer. Very skilled, extremely accommodating, and very pleasant in his manners. He has been taking very beautiful pictures of extended family for years at many occasions/events such as weddings, reunions, and birthday parties. He has created many galleries for us to share online and keep the memories of good times alive. I am in particular grateful for him taking a very beautiful portrait of my mom and pop shortly before my dad passed away and provided me with a large color print that I have hanging on the wall of my bedroom reminding me of my late dad every day. I highly recommend Hassan to others.

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.

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!!!

My husband and I recently had a maternity photo shoot. We are absolutely thrilled with the way our photos came out and cannot wait to welcome this new baby! We didn't know where to start with this photo shoot and Pickle pie photography was a big help in suggesting beautiful places to take the photos. We enjoyed taking many pictures with various poses and different lighting based on the sun. Overall our experience was wonderful and we highly recommend pickle pie photography!

Matthew's work is so outstanding! I used him for a wedding anniversary party and his portraits, impromptu photos and detail shots are all gorgeous. He is very unobtrusive and easy to work with. He is very prompt with the photo gallery. I highly recommend Matthew D'Alto!

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.
