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!

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 enjoyed my shoot with Hans. He was very patient. I showed Hans pics of what I wanted to recreate and he said we couldn't do some of them (use of props, etc) but with the help of my friend that I brought with me --we were able to recreate most of the poses, shots I hoped for. This was a shoot for my birthday so I wanted to get really creative --I think Hans is more of a family portrait photographer. Either way--beautiful pictures. Thank you!

I recently booked Bin Song to capture the moment I proposed to my girlfriend. I had heard this was a trend and wanted to find the right photographer. I found Bin Song’s website and saw she had experience shooting marriage proposals. She was extremely helpful. We discussed the location (Rockefeller Center) and what the best time to be there was for lighting, and what angle I should be in for the best background (I felt like an actor talking to the director on a movie set, it was so cool). She explained that in order to get the best natural shot, my girlfriend could not know she was there - so it was important for me to be in the right place at the right time for the perfect photos. After I proposed and she said “yes”, Bin Song came over to congratulate us and take some portrait photos as a new couple to compliment the proposal ones she had just taken. Her photos were beautiful, catching the total look of surprise and happiness on my fiancee’s face; and, with the ice rink and statue at Rockefeller Center in the background, it looked like something out of a magazine. Bin Song did everything I requested. Before and after photos of the proposal, along with a video of the proposal itself. I would definitely book her again… and have her shoot our wedding.

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.

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!

Andrea is an awesome photographer, very friendly. I hired her for my baby shower. This being my very first event, she took all the initiative and brought studio lights and external flash by herself. Me and my friends liked her a lot ! we look forward to work with her for my baby photo shoot too.

Tony is a true professional. His studio is inviting, relaxing and he makes you feel very comfortable. I'm pleased with my pictures, and he went the extra mile and helped me with a comp. card. I've already referred him to a few friends for portrait, and action pics. for their children. Lastly, he is close to where I live, and that was a bonus. I'll be back at some point for more pictures.

Michael shot a studio portrait of me for my business last year. He made me feel completely at ease and the results were fantastic. It was clear that he wasn't an amateur with a camera, as is the case so much these days, but a real pro who knew how to light and direct. I recommend him without reservation!!

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.

    Hi, I'm not looking for an engagement photo shoot, rather, I'm looking for someone to take some artistic photos of my fiance and I so that I can create some "save the date" magnets. If we are happy with this session, we will consider hiring the same people for an engagement session this spring.
