Matt was great to work with. From the time he submitted his quote and portfolio, I fell in love with his style of photography. He was cheaper than most of the other quotes I got, and yet I think his portfolio was the best by far. I was looking for new professional portraits to use for LinkedIn and other professional materials, but I detest the "stock photo" style of professional head shots that plague this space. His work has more personality and is less retouched - so my skin doesn't look plastic. We booked an appointment early in the morning on a Saturday at Hermann Park and Rice U in order to capture the best light. I had some ideas and he had also scouted good locations. I should also say, I've worked with many photographers and Matt had, I think, the most gear and tools for shooting on location that I've ever seen! He was also very personable, relaxed and easy to work with, which always helps to create better work that looks more natural and not posed. I've so far received about half of the final edited photos, and they're looking great! I'm looking forward to the rest!

Caitlin is amazing! She was so sweet and worked with my crazy schedule and last minute challenges, I briefly told her what I was looking for and she totally nailed it! I honestly could not be happier! She took so many shots and was so sweet enough to give me plenty of pictures unlike many photographers that will narrow down the number of pictures you get to keep. She also got them to me in just a few days! I've saved her number in my phone and will definitely be calling her again... if you're reading this and considering hiring Caitlin you definitely should!

My company hired Tracy to do our staff headshots. She and her team were very professional AND personable. She offered to do a site visit (unlike other photographers who contacted me about the job) to identify best spots to set-up. She listened to our requests and our concerns and was able to give us her creative input. She put all of our staff at ease while they took their photo - something to note since some of our older staff were reluctant to take the photo at all. Quick turnaround for the photos too. And overall, excellent quality! We all jokingly said the photos came out so well that we didn't even recognize each other. I'm glad I found Tracy via Thumbtack. I highly recommend hiring her for all your corporate and personal projects.

Dom is the best in the business! Choosing him as our photographers for our AirBnB photos was the best decision we made. Dom made the whole process enjoyable and it was a joy to work with him. In addition to his professionalism, his work exceeded our expectations. He has a true natural talent for photography and was able to capture every special part of our condo that meant the world to us. His communication was consistent, effective, and efficient, plus his precision to detail is amazing. If you want the most authentic, unique, and awesome photos in town, Dom is your guy. My wife and I can’t wait to use him again for our other properties!

Daniel did the photograpy for our wedding and reception on June 27th. He showed up 30 minutes early and took a few final requested shots after our allotted time was up. Daniel did a great job with a complexed situation. We were married on our boat and Daniel was all over it to get some great shots. He took photos from the bow, the stern, the second story fly bridge and the third story tuna tower. He had some creative compositions that proved to be "spot on" in the final photos. We looked into several photographers for our wedding and are very pleased that we went with Daniel at Positive Studios. He was not the least expensive nor the most expensive photographer, but we liked the detail in his sample photos. Daniel had our final photos ready for us in two weeks. I would highly recommend Positive Studios to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Mr Loyd is so nice. It was great having him as our wedding photographer. He made it on a short notice. He made it to court early even before we got there. He took beautiful pictures and was giving ideas on taking the pictures. He really loves working with peoples and he has 25 years plus experience and it really shows, so if you’re looking for a photographer i hope your search ends here cause you’ll not be disappointed. Thank you so much Jimmy

I requested an outside maternity photo shoot at 34 wks pregnant. At 34wks pregnant and also due to some unforeseen complications, it has been a little difficult for me to ambulate without assistance. With this in mind, Grady chose a location that was easy to access and beautiful. Unlike any other photographer I have worked with, he also suggested scheduling an early morning session that would allow great photos and a cooler outside temperature. Grady was very professional, considerate of my condition, understood my needs and provided personalized service. He was able to capture what I envisioned and more. His attention to detail and willingness to hear my requests makes him a cut above the rest. The turnaround time for reviewing the proofs also exceeded my expectations - they were uploaded within hours. I will use his service again and I am very pleased with my entire experience.

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.
