We used thumbtack to look for portrait photographer for our small startup business. Among all interested photographers, Patrick provided the most prompt responses to all of our requests. He listened to our ideas and made several good suggestions on how and where to shoot. And he was willing to work around our busy work schedule. Overall a great experience. Our pictures turn out really nice. We'd highly recommend Patrick.

Jason Craig from Steady State Studios was from beginning to end very responsive, always answering questions in a timely manner. He was professional and friendly, very easy to work with in person and in writing! He was affordable and well worth the money spent and the time communicating with him. We had many people at our wedding commenting on how professional, friendly, and attentive he was! He was great with the children and the adults, and captured the big moments, while also tailoring the photography to the requests we had made. He was organized and showed up at the right time. I was a stress-mess when Jason showed up since I was not ready yet and did not want to make him wait, and he was so patient and calm and reassured me that it was fine. Jason did not make me or anyone else feel rushed, and everyone had a great time with him as the photographer. Our pictures turned out great and he provided multiple ways for us to obtain our photos simply. He was quick to get the pictures to us and we had so much fun looking through them. Very appreciative that we were lucky to have him at our wedding (:

Juan is a treasure we were fortunate to discover in Portland when we were searching for a photographer to shoot our family's portrait. Nothing disturbs this artist and all our requests were satisfied. He is a true professional and we are very happy with the photographs. Hire Juan and your photography concerns will be answered.

Stefani did our family portraits; we LOVED them! My daughter (and husband) aren't great with cameras on demand and she was wonderful with them. Her props and techniques were the perfect way to get some of the most amazing candid family photos ever. I will be recommending Stefani to anyone who asks about family photos and we hope to work with her again for updated photos (and hopefully maternity shots one day :) ) I literally could not pick my favorites out of the 100 something photos we got.

Couldn’t be happier with Rob`s work for our pregnancy shoots! I love my maternity photos – it was such a wonderful thing to do just before giving birth! Rob was absolutely incredible to work with. He is experienced, very creative and his warm personality brings out the best in his subjects, especially if you are unsure of how to "act" in front of the camera. He makes you feel completely relaxed and at ease, and it truly makes a difference in your photos. I have to say Rob actually makes taking photos fun! I'd consider myself not photogenic until I started working with Rob - he really works his magic and can give just the right direction to make all the difference. I absolutely love my maternity photos and can’t believe how fantastic Rob made me look just a week before giving birth! Him and his assistant were patient but professional, giving us tips throughout the session to make sure the pictures came out great. At every moment they were kneeling, bending, standing on chairs just to get the shot they wanted. Rob is very dedicated to get the best shots, it is clear though that he truly loves what he does. Robs photos are stunning, natural and proudly hanging throughout our home. We will treasure our photos for years to come and will likely be back for future family shoots. Rob is also great at portraits and wedding photography. Check out his blog for loads more cool pics. He has an incredible eye for the "right" shot, being a top notch photographer and we are so happy we hired him! I would recommend him for any special occasion you want to remember forever.

Adam was so easy to work. We requested candid photography for our event and the pics came out very good. Adam came in few mins early to the event and made sure he has all the right view and angles to cover the pics. He also bought portable lights for us as add ons to take few portrait pics of our family. Thanks Adam- we would hire you again and recommend to our friends and family Thanks Raj

We had Kevin do our family portraits 3 years ago. When it was time for our daughter to have her senior portrait we knew Kevin would do a great job. My daughter's senior portraits are outstanding! Most importantly my daughter is her own worst critic and she loved how they turned out. Thank you Kevin for the time you spent and your creativity.

One of the better photographers I've worked with in the past. Most of the photographers on thumbtack are a scam or aren't actual photographers. I was skeptical at first but was happy to be proved wrong. Will work with again in the future.

HIGHLY RECCOMEND!! Jenn and her crew are not only incredibly talented and affordable, but they’re so much fun to be around! Our wedding photos were no less than magnificent and we could not be happier! Jenn is so enthusiastic and have a great eye for detail. She and her daughter put together a wedding video for us that was absolutely beautiful, they were so easy going with our crazy families, and took photos that are completely jaw dropping. I highly recommend hiring stunning portrait photography for all of your events! You will not be disappointed!

Roo is our go-to photographer for all of our family's major life events! From pregnancy photos, to family pictures, and photos for our family Christmas card, he always knows how to capture the moment! Aside from being GREAT with babies, he is extremely patient and caring when it comes to getting everyone in position for the perfect shot. Best of all, he's extremely down-to-earth while maintaining professionalism. I never feel like he's rushing us or not receptive to the type of "mood" we're trying to capture. I'm pretty particular of what I want from our photo shoots and he is GREAT at being very accommodating and understanding! I wouldn't recommend anyone else for family photos!! Trust me- I've worked with 3 other photographers and he's hands down, the best!!!!

Rachel is so easy to work with. She is the perfect photographer for family portraits. We had two babies in our portrait and she has a knack for getting that perfect shot! She makes you feel very comfortable and that translates to a photo that really captures the moment. I would work with her again!

Sarah Haimes has truly been a dream to work with. I started booking her travel dates and can't be even more thankful for having her be the one to document very precious moments of my life. She is primarily a wedding photographer, but OMG you know it's talent that no matter the time of day, or the location, or the genre of portraiture. Because Shuttergram Photography PREFORMS. That is the true beauty of working with a professional! Shuttergram Photography stands out from other photographers in the industry because of her unique eye and artistic approach to all sessions. She has strong work with single subjects all the way to group photos for families or wedding portraits. But what really gets me is her artistic editing and knowing how to highlight your best features that make you feel like a million bucks. I'm a proud client and supporter of Shuttergram Photography. And I've been contemplating on a vow renewal just so I can get wedding portraits with her artistic vision!

Chad was absolutely awesome. As this being my first photo shoot, he was funny and professional. He actually had ties and a watch if I needed one just in case. The attention to detail and the photo advice was priceless. I have found my new photographer as I could not imagine going to someone else.

Megan was 5 star from the get-go. She was responsive, thoughtful, and detail oriented. The outcome was a fun, low stress outdoor photoshoot (which is a challenge when working with a toddler!) and a series of portraits that really fit what we had in mind. I will definitely be working with her in the future, and strongly recommend her services.

I used E&B for professional headshots/portraits and it was an overall great experience. I love the resulting images and it was an overall great experience. Chris makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and you can tell that he is comfortable behind it. I am definitely using E&B as my go to photography company for any future portraits or family photo sessions.

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.
