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!

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!

My husband, toddler, and I had a session with Matthew to take photos for Christmas cards. The photoshoot went perfectly. Matthew was very helpful and responsive before, during, and after the session. He was flexible about everything and made good use of the time and space we had for the photo shoot. He was also excellent with our easily distracted 2-year-old. We got digital files of the photos back within a couple days, and they were exactly what we were looking for! Matthew's services were also very affordable. This was easily the best experience we've had with a photographer with our daughter, and we'd definitely use Matthew again!

I can't begin to say how great our experience was with Bread & Water Photography. Both Daniel and Doris are great people to work with. They were very genuine and personable. The communication was excellent throughout our entire experience. The turn around time was great and the final product exceeded our expectations. We have officially adopted them as our family photographers for life. Ray & Vicki

Words can't describe the overwhelming feeling of satisfaction I feel! Iheny is professional and extremely talented. She has such a great personality that she fit right in with us yet maintained professionalism. I forgot she wasn't one of the girls! Her creative capability elevated our video and still images to a different level! It was easy to build a rapport with her and I trusted her and her directions in regards to posing. She is so good that our photographers allowed her to take the lead. I'm forever grateful for the manner in which she captured our big day. I'm also forever thankful that we found her on Thumbtack. My first time using this site was a success and that's an understatement! Thank you from the bottom of my heart Iheny! Words can't express the joy I feel in my heart from the service and product you provided us with!

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

First time using thumbtack, but needed a photographer for my daughter's headshots and didn't know how to find one in my area. Stumbled upon thumbtack and first person to respond was Christian with Faith Productions. I'm so glad we decided to use her. She knew exactly what we needed and delivered some amazing headshots! And our time together was a lot of fun! Excellent results by an excellent photographer! Highly recommend her!

Tess was beyond amazing. From the beginning she set up a time to meet and discuss what I wanted for my wedding as a whole-my hopes and expectations so she could have a grasped of how I would want the story of our wedding translated in photographs. She makes you feel very at ease when she talks with you and knows all of the right questions to ask. She is assertive without being pushy, which is really important in a wedding photographer. The day of when she came to take photos of us getting ready for the wedding my dress hadn't arrived in the mail (we had a semi-elopement) and she said "I'm on it. You worked hard to find this dress and paid to have it here on time so if we have to go track down the UPS guy we will." And she really did that! She made it happen. Although I'm not sure if she would do this for everyone (that's why wedding planners and maid of honor exist) you can take comfort in knowing she wants the best for your special day and wants to help it be problem free and full of happiness. When she photographed the wedding she always communicated what she was doing so that I would be aware and not have to worry about it. She also was clear in communicating with the guests when we would have to go off and take private photos. She knew how to direct our movements and how to help us take photos naturally. She made us laugh! My husband even said to me after the wedding, "It's a good thing she was there today." She was very quick to send some digital version of the photos so I could send them to family. I am very confident she would make anyone and everyone feel at ease, have more fun, and capture each moment perfectly! So thank you so much Tess, we love you and couldn't think of anyone better to have taken photos of us on such a special day.

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.
