So glad I hired a professional to capture family portraits and our daughter's baptism! I'll admit I was on the fence b/c everyone has cameras on their phones these days, but everything from our first contact down to receiving the proofs, I knew it was the right decision. Lenny was accommodating and easygoing with my last minute planning and lack of preparation. I'm thrilled with the photos...I would hire him again without hesitation!

Highly recommend Greg as a photographer for family portrait. We had a family reunion in Annapolis and thought it would be nice to get a family picture as we are rarely together. Greg was incredibly accommodating, driving down from Baltimore on a Sunday morning. Further, we had two toddlers who were a bit challenging to photograph. Greg was flexible, patient and resourceful (using his expert editing skills to swap their faces with photographs where they were engaged and smiling - looking at the pictures you would have no idea they were edited). Greg is extremely personable, professional and an excellent portrait photographer.

Verified review

After a couple years of making volunteer appearances as Santa Claus, I decided to "go professional". A friend recommended Chris Paulis Photography for taking portraits to publish on my new web site. Chris went above and beyond my expectations, before, during, and after our scheduled photo shoot. Once the portraits were published on my web site, talent agents were highly impressed with the iconic images that Chris was able to capture and the resulting opportunities for me to portray Santa Claus were amazing. Most of my clients attributed their interest in my services to the heartwarming portraits taken by Chris Paulis.

Julie did a in-home newborn/family photo session for us and she made it so enjoyable! She is great with guiding you what to do through each photo and she’s not afraid to tell you where to move, or what to look at. Previous photographers weren’t as assertive and made it very difficult for us to know what to do. Our pictures turned out amazing! If you use her you won’t be disappointed!

Corey is a great photographer. He was very helpful in helping us select a great location and even the best parking spot. He was already waiting when he arrived and was about to capture exactly what we wanted to portray. The pictures are so awesome. I look forward to working with him in the future. We have found our family’s photographer.

We had an amazing experience with Nicokam Photography! The photos Nick took of our family are absolutely incredible. He captured such wonderful little impromptu moments in addition to taking beautiful portraits. Not only was Nick professional, kind, and punctual, but he was also super patient with our toddler and he managed to get amazing shots of him in action-- not easy to do! We loved the whole session and we are so happy with the end result! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I hired Yuna to do some headshots for me for work. They really came out amazing. She took amazing photographs that really brought out much more from a headshot of me than I thought possible. The quality of the images were simply amazing. She has great intuition when taking my pictures. Would definitely hire her again for even events and more portrait photography.

I hired Amanda for our long-over-due family portraits. She suggested a beautiful outdoor venue and recommended the best time of day for outdoor lighting. The way Amanda captured the light in our photos was Amazing. She was SO patient about organizing us for our poses and also got some great candid shots. She took pictures for a whole hour, selected the best ones for us (she has a great eye!) and sent them digitally very quickly. She was kind and fun, but very professional the whole time. I definitely recommend Amanda Joyce Photography!

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.
