Paul did amazing, I've never been very photogenic or liked photos of myself but every single picture he took I loved! He was very helpful and nice and was by far one of the best photographers I've ever seen/ been too! He had some amazing ideas and all the pictures turned out amazing. 5 stars! I would recommend to everybody and I'll defiantly be coming back!

Andrea Reesing is an AMAZING photographer with the ability to make anyone and anything look amazing. When shooting with her, I felt completely comfortable and she brought out the best in me!! I got my photos within 24 hours, which I can't say that most photographers do. She has a love for photography that most creative people don't. I will definitely be booking her again!!!!

I needed photos for a Mothers Day gift and had procrastinated planning them. I posted on Thumbtack and Anna quickly responded and was very flexible with accommodating my quick need. We took them at Mayfield Park and everything went wonderful! Anna was so good at finding the right lighting and positioning us. She took so many amazing photos it was almost impossible to choose! I highly recommend Anna and next time I need any photos taken I will definitely hire her again.

Mindi is an amazing person & photographer! She editted the pictures so great. She recommended great poses for us to do since it was our first time taking pictures. She is very flexible with time and location, btw her location preferences are amazing. Her prices were very reasonable as well and fit my budget. Will definitely call her again if I need my pictures taken again!

Doc is absolutely fantastic. I was in conversation with several photographers, and I decided on Doc for his level of attentiveness and responsiveness. He answered all my questions with ease and exuded a sense of comfort I didn't receive from others. The day we met, his passion for the art of photography was very apparent. He worked to get all the right angles and all the right shots (even with the obstacle of a crying infant) In the end, his level of professionalism and eye for detail created the most beautiful photos. He is very friendly and will work with you to make sure you are absolutely satisfied with his services. That's a level of customer service you often don't see in this day in age. He cares about his reputation and the products he produces. He also cares about his clients. For that, I will be a repeat customer!

Mary was great to work with. 1) She always responded to emails and phone calls quickly. 2) She was flexible with our schedule for the bridal portraits (my daughter lives out of town) and got them back quickly so we could have a print to display at the wedding. She had no problem with the wedding being at our church and the reception at another location. 3) I LOVE her pictures. One thing that impressed me on her web-page was the indoor shots - many photographers have lots of outdoor shots but few indoor ones. The wedding and reception were both inside (it was July!) and she did a great job. She was very discreet and managed to capture the beauty, sacredness, and joy of the day. Somehow she managed to convince my daughter and her husband to step outside for some quick (and wonderful) shots and then continued the magic indoors. 4) Compared to many other photographers, she has very reasonable rates. 5) She truly loves her job and her joy bubbles out to everyone around - it was more like she was an old friend rather than "just" a photographer. I will definitely contact Mary for other occasions!

Both talented and professional are a combination not easily found in a sea of photographers, but Mesh is a rare breed! He has an incredible eye and creates a comfortable environment for all your creative aspirations to come alive, his editing skills supersed your expectations every time and his turn around is prompt. I highly recommend booking a shoot asap no matter if it's portfolio, wedding or album art for musicians he can cover it all and you'll have a blast working with him!

I did not actually have my photos taken by Errich (because a photographer friend was able to do it for less money), but he was very kind and gracious when I canceled and was willing to reduce his price quite a bit as well. I will definitely keep him in mind for next time if my friend is unavailable.

Stephen is a great photographer! My fiance and I did our engagement pictures with him and we are so happy with the result. He captured the best moments in perfect angles. Besides that, he was really flexible about our appointment. You know the weather is unpredictable in Texas and we had some freeze alerts. Because of that, we had to reschedule our appointment several times, and he was always really flexible. I highly recommend you to do engagment pictures with him!

Ryan did an amazing job photographing our event! 150 people, a very large awards program, dancing, great food and decor... She captured it all so beautifully! My best friend and my husband are both photographers and are my usual go-to's for the many charitable and social functions I put on but they were off duty that night. I was nervous that we wouldn't get the same quality and caring from a hired gun (so to speak). But myself and our group members were all so pleasantly surprised that Ryan got some amazing shots and in the challenging environment of a relatively low light hotel ballroom. Excellent job and highly recommended!

She is now my go to photographer for everything! She did our maternity and newborn photos and they turned out amazing. She makes you feel beautiful and like a friend is taking your pictures rather than a stranger you just hire. Her turn round time is amazing and I have never had to contact her about receiving my photos, as she gets them to you faster than promised. Highly recommend!

I met Jeannine through my daughter. When she photographed her nieces with my daughter I knew she should be a professional photographer. Of course Jeannine has only improved with time and you can experience how easy she is to work with.

I am a professional photographer working in Waco, TX for the past 18 years. Janis worked for me in my Studio for several years while she was attending Baylor University. She has assisted with me in Weddings, special events and the Waco Cotton Palace for the past 8 years. She is one of the first photographers I call to assist when I need help. Janis has worked independently for several years and her work is excellent. I highly recommend her as a professional photographer and graphic designer. A pleasure to work with.

Thanks Arfan and Diana for making my baby's birthday really memorable. You guys really went extra mile to wait for baby to get comfortable and capture subtle candid moments. We are thrilled to see some of the amazing shots you guys clicked. Diana thanks for making my baby laugh all the time and Big shout out for Arfan for clicking amazing photos when baby and we made you tired so much :) . You guys were really accommodative when we changed outfits and requested one more shot at the end after you packed your bags.

Yona took my senior photos at the Mckinney Falls State Park in Austin, TX. She not only did my makeup beautifully, but she took her time with me, making sure I was comfortable and relaxed while shooting my photos! She was such a fun person to be around!! I would recommend her to anyone who's wanting an exceptional photographer, who not only is a professional at her job, but really cares for her clients and capturing their true beauty! :)

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.
