Ray was nothing short of AWESOME! From the day we hired him as our photographer to now, he was been very easy to contact. I don't think I ever waited longer than a couple hours for a response. A few hours before our engagement shoot, I decided to add a location, and Ray was accommodating (and even told us about a great lake to shoot at-- great photos!). Some photographers would have said "sorry", but Ray was excited with the new idea. Fast forward to the wedding day.... it rained!!! (A bride's worst nightmare) However, Ray and the second photographer, Laurie, made the BEST of the space, and the photos turned out stunning! When there was a break in the rain, they took the opportunity to go outside with us. We even have some great photos with a simple black umbrella. I literally have hundreds (a couple thousand, really) photos from the entire day... All the special moments were captured. We even had access to our entire photo collection about a week and a half after the wedding date. I recommend Ray to shoot other weddings! (I wanted add some photos straight from the wedding photo gallery, but I cannot figure out how to make them smaller than 10MB!)

The Elite-Best-Of-The-Best Photographers! My family has had the privilege of experiencing many sessions with Laurinda as our photographer and each time; she delivers perfection in her ability to bring our kids' faces to life. She goes above and beyond to make picture posing fun, which miraculously guarantees outstanding results out of even our most challenging children; when most photographers would simply give-up on them to just collect the paycheck, Laurinda uses her infinate bag of tricks to create a magical moment that becomes wall-worthy for months and years to come. There is a reason that we simply cannot do without Me+3 so we try to book our appointment for photo sessions every opportunity we get. We have been thrilled with every session and are proud that our very best-selves are preserved for an eternity. In addition to our family photos, I also had some extra individual portraits done for a recent election. It certainly may have been the photos that sealed that victory but who knows; all I can say is they definitely contributed positively. Thank you Laurinda and Me+3 Photography for always making me look so damn good! Ryan Bent

I'm from California and was heading out to Nashville for vacation + to propose to my girlfriend (now fiancé). After a ton of hours researching and looking for the perfect photographer, I'm so happy I came across Michael. When I reached out, he was very quick to respond, very professional, reasonable pricing, super nice guy in person and on time at the set destination. Since Michael and I didn't officially meet until after the proposal, I actually snapped a pic of my fiancé and I that day so he knew what we were wearing and who to look out for. He was so good at capturing our special day. He caught the proposal just perfectly and then we snapped a bunch of pics afterwards. Did I mention he's quick? He had all of our pictures up on his website within a couple hours (end of day) and told us we could choose any/all photos to be edited. Given the extensive research that I did, that's very uncommon. Most photographers allow you to choose maybe 6 photos. Anyways, we chose a bunch of pics and he had them all edited within the same day! Such an exciting experience and hands down I suggest having Michael help capture every little detail on camera!

Tina photographed a sip n see party where people came to visit our new baby. We were last minute in hiring someone and she was very quick to get on the job. She blended well in the party and took plenty of candid photos and posed pictures too. She did a mini newborn baby photo shoot as well. Tina took direction well and also gave direction when needed. Price was very fair compared to other websites I saw pricing for. The photographs are beautiful and she got them to me in just about a day. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

We hired Deb to do our daughter's senior portraits and some professional head-shots of my husband and myself. She meet with us before to discuss our expectations and scout the location. She REALLY listened to what my daughter wanted. The pictures are beyond perfect, she really captured who my daughter is as a person. I'm so pleased with Deb's work, I hired her for a wedding in December and were discussing plans for a vow renewal in June. I've found my go-to photographer, for sure!

Matt was the ideal photographer from start to finish! He made the day feel care free and easy, when it would typically be stressful and nerve wracking. Matt will make you comfortable in your own skin, and will make your special event that much more special. If I ever need a photographer again, I'd never call anyone before Matt. Can't say enough how great he is at his craft :)

Describing how INCREDIBLE Kyle is is like describing the vastness of the universe: no words can compare to such greatness! When I was in search of some new family portraits, I knew I wanted superior quality and a modern style, but of course at a price I could reason. After weeks of getting no where after countless let downs of potential photographers, a mentor of mine suggested Kyle Beerman. Known for his enthusiasm, creativity, and empathy, Kyle came across as a brother who I've never had but have always longed for when we first met to discuss my wants and desires for my photos. He was professional in his approach to the job, but personal in his approach to our relationship. We were able to set up our shoot and he took care of everything! I value someone who knows their craft so well, they make others feel confident and prepared along with them. Kyle fits this bill to a tee. We were able to narrow down our ideas for the shoot and execute it all within budget. I recommend Kyle for all of your photo and video needs. He will exceed your expectations and treat you like family rather than a client. And to top it all off, he even sent me a hand written card in the mail a few weeks after our shoot wishing my family and I a happy New Year! We love you Kyle!

Allie is beyond amazing. She captured every single emotion and moment that was very important to us. Allie’s personality and kindness takes the working relationship to a friendship very quickly. Her being a part of our big day was perfect. She is more than a photographer... as she is now a part of our family.

I hate having my picture taken, but was required to have a headshot by my company. I did a lot of searching online and was referred to Nashville Corporate Photography. I worked with a photographer named Nicole and she surprisingly made the whole process enjoyable! I LOVE my new pics, my husband loves them, and I get lots of compliments from everyone else as well. I couldn't be more pleased with the professionalism and quality of the photos.

Chris and Taylor were amazing! I couldn't have found a better photographer for my surprise proposal. They were great to coordinate with in the planning process and all of our pictures turned out great, not to mention the fact that we received edited photos back within hours of taking them. Very professional, personable, talented, and they even helped handle our two husky mix dogs who can be a handful. I would highly recommend Photos by Chris McCarthy to anyone.

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.
