My daughter had painted some amazing oil paintings! My family and friends all wanted copies. I looked on line as to how to create prints. The only real way is to develop photos of them and prints from the photo's. Thumbtack was great because it gave me 5 professional photographers right in my area. I liked Mike's profile and the amazing work he has done. From there the effort on my part was so easy! Mike picked up the paintings, shot the photos in his professional studio, returned the paintings, and provided the files on line and a link to have prints made. I didn't have to leave the house! I knew the prints had to be made professionally at a high resolution with the proper lighting. I looked at the files on line and they were amazing! I purchased prints, full size matching the size of the paintings and then also several 11" x 14". The prints were awesome! The clarity and detail were almost better than the oil paintings themselves! Mike was so friendly, professional and responsive. It was a great experience! The awe's on Christmas day said it all! I recommend Mike to anyone! Thx! Joe Ross

I selected Jim from a group of 5 largely because he pointed out two things that were important to me. First, his years of experience. He has been a photographer for over 20 years, so I expected he would have all the knowledge in terms of light and editing to make my picture (professional pic for LinkedIn) look great. Second, for the price charged he guaranteed I would be happy with the result. The other offers I read left me with the impression that there could be additional fees. Ultimately, Jim delivered on both. I am very happy with his work and feel as if it was a fair price. You can't ask for any more than that!! Great job Jim!!

Abbe was stellar to shoot with. She knew how to shoot to match her style (which is why I hired her) and gave us a great value for her service. She's also funny and knows how to get a lot from her subjects. Hope to work with her again!

Matthew Porter is by far one of the best photographers I've ever worked with, and I've worked with many. He's very professional and always creates stunning works of art. He is truly passionate about what he does and it shows in his work. He has just relocated not that long ago and he is already missed. Matthew is an unbelievable visionary and has an incredibly unique way of brining his visions, and those of others, to life. I would recommend anyone to work with thus amazing photographer.

I absolutely love Maria!!! Maria did my daughter's Sweet 16 Valentine's day weekend and I'm ecstatic that I made the right decision choosing her as my daughter's photographer!! Maria is very professional but not stuffy, she is a beautiful person, has a great personality and is very down to earth. Maria did her job wonderfully, she wasn't intrusive and she blended in with the guest. After the party she kept me informed of the picture uploading but nothing could've prepared me for the picture proofs!!! My husband and I had lumps in our throats viewing the proofs!! They were nothing short of spectacular and so many of them, posed and candid, she has an amazing eye and pays great attention to details. I will be using Maria J Photography for all my photo needs!!

Bradd has been the sole contributor for all of the film Boston2Philly photography and promotional material (including the Film Poster). As well as being an incredible talented photographer, Bradd also is very diverse with his experience working with still and moving imagery. A skill that came in handy during some of the larger and more complex sets in the production. Bradd was able to provide much needed critiques and directions to a crew of over 11 film professionals on numerous different occasions. Most importantly, Bradd is a humble Professional even as he becomes the premier source of inspiration to many photographers in the Philadelphia area who acquire his tutelage. All in all...I highly recommend Bradd for any job! - Producer/Writer of Boston2Philly and DistrictC11

Holden came to my location to take photos of me for my website and to be used for professional associations. I couldn't have been more impressed with his professional insight. He is a master at knowing lighting, position and composition. He was open to all the locations I had in mind for shooting the photos and spent plenty of time with me. Before he left, he let me know when my photos would be arriving. Although he needs to touch them up, he did show me the pictures he had taken. He made sure before he left that I was happy. Moving forward, Holden will be my go to photographer and I suggest that you book him too!

Joan is a wonderful teacher. You can tell she has a passion for photogrophy and that shows in her teaching. She takes the time to explain your own camer and then takes you out into the field to practice getting shots. I would recommend her to every new photographer like myself. She helped me grasp the concept and I'm able to take good shots after just two lessons!

I first had some head shots taken for work a few years ago. They were fantastic. Then we got engaged and had engagement photos taken. They were just wonderful and we had our wedding photos taken by Paul as well. We could not have asked for a better photographer. Paul did his research on the venue and make all the wedding day photos fun. We highly recommend PD Photography.

Chris is amazing. He has been doing my daughters pictures since the beginning of his career. He has just got better and better! He gives the best advice. And never let's us down. He is such a great person to work with. He always gets the job done and more! Anytime someone asks about pictures I send them Chris's way!

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.
