Elena is one of those daring photographers, the kind that doesn't care to take risks. She isn't trying to be different to impress anyone, she just has an overflow of ideas that reflect her passion for the Arts. She has been my favorite photographer to work with so far. I have no doubt in my mind she will conquer any photography project that comes her way!

Mary was wonderful to work with, she was so patient and willing to go all over campus to make sure that I got the shots that I wanted for my Senior Pictures. If you are looking for someone that is capable of accommodating with your busy schedule to make things work, she is the photographer for you! Thanks again, Mary!

Chris always does a wonderful job with pictures for our family. We always enjoy working with him! With kids it can be hard to get a good shot but he always takes the time to find the right shot. He did a wonderful job on our wedding pictures as well as our daughters newborn pictures, and we plan to use him in the future!

I could not have asked for a better photographer for my wedding reception. She captured the happiness of everyone there! We talked before hand about what I was looking for and she definitely delivered! It was a small gathering, very casual setting in a mountain cabin, but she did a great job at making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera.

I’m not going to lie, I felt a little nervous before I came in for the shoot. Although I love being the center of attention, this was a whole new experience to me, and I didn't really know what to expect or what would be expected of me. But, after being pampered by the hair and makeup artists, I felt like a princess! All the stress and nervousness I had before the shoot began to wear off as I sat there and talked about my day while being styled up. I would tell anyone considering senior year or family photos to go see Saray! The pictures I received were flawless and I know they're something I'll cherish forever. They're not the typical and often cheesy pictures I see plastered on my Facebook timeline or Pinterest boards; they're elegant, luxurious, and still professional, traits I try to capture in my own self. I'd have to say that the best thing overall was the new confidence I found in myself. The confidence that was instilled in me is something I can carry with me even after the shoot has ended.

    Felicia is an amazing photographer. She really has an eye for good lighting and landscape. She deals well with people who are not models (like myself) and is super affordable. All in all, I've had positive experiences with Felicia (and not just because she's my best friend's mother). Check her out!

      Working with RA photo was a bliss. Anna is a wonderful photographer who guided us in posing and was suggestive in background of chosen location. She made us laugh to capture a natural smile which is very important to me. She was very fast on finishing up the photos as well. I absolutely love our photos by RA photo! Thank you!

          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.
