The entire experience with Mary was really great from start to finish. She was friendly, professional and most importantly, genuinely passionate about what she was doing. Mary was punctual and she was immediately polite, reassuring and excited. We took plenty of photos at City Hall, while walking to the subway, during the ride and then finally at Central Park with some great fall colours in the background. The pictures came out great and we loved talking to Mary and Ali, who were courteous and professional at all times. Mary was really generous with her pricing and took into account the fact that it was just my wife and I. Unlike a lot of quotes from other photographers, hers was one of the few that really reflected this fact. We highly recommend Mary.

Joe was extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with many photographers before and Joe was definitely the most "on-top-of-it"! Besides being easy to work with, the work product was amazing. Very clear and professional head shots. The subjects of his photos said he made them feel comfortable.

I cannot even express my gratitude for Cheyanna ! Her work is absolutely stunning and blew my mind! I received a lot of quotes before making my decision to hire her but her website images and work is what made me decide for Cheyanna. The price is absolutely fair and she spent all day with us! I have used other photographers in the past but no one has ever been this responsive and understanding. Not only did the photos come way sooner than expected but she also let me know when which is something I appreciate even more. She also sent a sneak peak! I never had anyone do that before and this was even more appreciated. I had other photographers where I constantly had to ask about when my photos would come back and Cheyanna was the opposite! She truly impressed us with her work and communication throughout. Her product is first class and it was also great to spend the day with her as she made us feel comfortable throughout. Don’t even think about hiring someone else and save you the hassle !!!

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.

It was real pleasure to get the images from this company. Hassan is a brilliant photographer and the photos that he took for us in our wedding ceremony came out so vivid and beautiful that I couldn't believe; truly the photos were beyond my expectation. This kind of sincere work and dedication is very rare these days; I honestly recommend this company and Hassan to anyone who are looking for some talented and brilliant photographers for any occasion.

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!

We absolutely loved our entire experience with Natalia. She responded very quickly, and stayed in touch after we confirmed the booking, sending us suggestions for the locations, and inquiring about our ideas and themes for the shoot. Her communications before the meeting show her genuine interest in ensuring her clients get what they want and need out of the shoot. It was very easy to spend an hour with Natalia, while taking pictures. There were no awkward moments, and the setting for the photos happened very naturally. Natalia is also really great at giving you a quick sneak peek at the photos during the session, that way if you see that you loved the composition, but hate your face or pose in it, you can quickly re-do it. No later than 12hrs after the shoot, Natalia responded with 120 proofs, of which we could choose 40 to be retouched, and available for download. She returned the final, downloadable photos 3 days after we finalized our selection, which is super fast for photographers. Because Natalia lets you peek at the photos during the shoot and select your favorites out of the preselected 120, you end up with 40 photos that you absolutely love, and you can use all of them (no blinking or hair in your mouth). Overall, we highly recommend Natalia for her professionalism and great photo quality, and hope to have a chance to work with her again!

Where do I even begin with Crystal. She's amazing I'm so happy I hired her for my friends baby shower. Not only is she extremely professional and talented but she had such a beautiful and down to earth personality. She was very punctual, delivered all the images in a very timely manner and the images were so beautiful! She captured all the precious moments and I couldn't be more happier with hiring her. If your looking for an amazing experience with a photographer then definitely hire PicsWitCris!

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.
