David was such a pleasure to work with. We were looking for photographers in the Salt Lake City area and he responded to our inquiry right away. He was instrumental in helping us pick the perfect location for our family portraits. He was patient with our children (and pets) and made the whole experience enjoyable. We would highly recommend David with Meppen Photography for your next family photo session.

Parker was prompt, professional, and friendly. He took our newborn photos for our little girl and I was amazed at how gentle and kind he was with our babe and how good his eye was with colors and framing. It was so fun to just sit back and let him do his magic. So grateful for the images he took that we'll cherish forever!

Over the years, I have used many photographers for my headshots. Michelle is among the best and easiest to work with. She was very quick to respond (within 15 minutes) and the process to set up our appointment was smooth. I am new to this area and hiring a photographer unknown to me, with no references, and over the internet can be an intimidating thing. Upon meeting Michelle, all apprehension was immediately gone. She has a very kind and easy going nature about her and makes you feel completely comfortable. I felt very safe in trusting her to capture what we needed. During the shoot, she watches you and suggests things as you do. I feel that she does this according to the individual or group she is working with and adapts to whomever she has in her viewfinder. I will recommend Michelle whenever the opportunity arises and if I'm in the area when I need to update my headshots, I will absolutely use her again.

Desert Sky did the Fresh48 for us. She took a poor lit hospital room and captured the most beautiful pictures of our baby girl at just 24 hours old. She helped create a calm and quiet atmosphere to keep baby asleep during all the different poses. I love that these special first moments were captured. Totally priceless.

My 2 daughters and I worked with Brett last summer for family photos. I really dislike having my photo taken, but was immediately put at ease with Brett's gentle guidance. He went far and beyond by spending most of the day with us and shooting all over the city. He was very patient with my teen daughters. Our pictures turned out beautifully and our experience wonderful. Brett is the consummate professional with a creative and artistic edge.

Caleb is one of the most professional photographers I have ever worked with. His attention to detail is second to none. I really admire his editing techniques and have not experienced this quality of work previously. He photographed my eldest daughters engagement pictures and he did beautiful bridals for another. I would definitely recommend his work! I will hopefully be using him again for family pictures soon (maybe with a grand-baby!)

Seth is amazing! The quality experience he creates is unequaled by any other professional photographer I’ve worked with. His interactions with the kids is perfect, which helps parents focus on the photos and not what the kids are doing. He made us laugh, kept us all calm and his post production work is fantastic. Seth is our forever family photographer! Just see the proof below!

Celesta was so great working with our 3 week old baby girl. She captured that precious stage very well. Loved the edits she did too. She was very patient and gentle with the baby and waited her to fall asleep (twice!) to get some cute sleepy shots. I happily recommend Celesta to photograph any special moments.

Spencer is fun, competent, and affordable. I hired him to record the moment I got engaged, and then take pictures at my wedding. He was efficient and professional in organizing us for photographs, and had a comfortable air that is born of practice. He was also friendly and upbeat. Most importantly, he delivered an abundance of excellent photographs, and allowed us to keep the digital copies of them. I would happily hire him again, and wholeheartedly recommend him to friends or strangers alike.

I have worked with a lot of photographers and Justin is truly one of the best. Not only is he an amazing photographer, his a genuine person who really puts his heart into his work. Justin captured one of the most special moments in my life, during a surprise engagement session. He captured the moment perfectly, as well as made sure we were constantly laughing and felt comfortable during the session.

Savvy photography did my newborn pictures for my little girl and I loved the experience! She came to my home and brought so many props and different outfits it looked like she was moving in. It was amazing! The process was calming and comfortable for both me and my daughter. We received our pictures very quickly and when we got them they were all edited with multiple images in each pose. By comparison, when our son was born we took him to a local studio. The photographer there seemed inexperienced, we were rushed, felt like a number, and left with only a few usable photos and feelings of disappointment. The experience with Savvy photography was absolutely better. Savanah is experienced and professional, and her energetic personality makes her a joy to be around. I have recommended her to my sister and all of my friends (when they decide to have babies) and would highly recommend her to anybody reading this review.

Patty Franklin is a fantastic photographer! She went far and above what most photographers would to get some fantastic shots. She was willing to go to many places and had some great ideas. She even helped design graduation announcements for our son. We are very pleased with her work and we will definitely use her again.

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.
