Alena is wonderful and excellent in photography. Just did maternity photos and she sent me the link for the gallery in a timely manner, in very high quality. Couldn’t ask for a better experience. Will likely end up doing all other photos (newborn, etc.) with Alena.

It was real pleasure to get the images from this company. Hassan is a brilliant photographer and the photos that he took for us in our wedding ceremony came out so vivid and beautiful that I couldn’t believe; truly the photos were beyond my expectation. This kind of sincere work and dedication is very rare these days; I honestly recommend this company and Hassan to anyone who are looking for some talented and brilliant photographers for any occasion.
Thank you so much to Eden’s mom for choosing me to be their photographer, and thank you for stopping by to take a look at this beautiful session. If you are planning to book a session, please be sure to pre-book! It is SO important, I have already starting booking as far out as July and I have only limited availability for February and March! I hate having to tell someone that I don’t have a session available for them. You can easily contact me by using the contact tab at the top of this page.
I searched for a photographer online and did my research by looking at reviews as well as the websites of several photographers. I was impressed with Jovana’s photos on her website so I booked her for headshots as well as some dance poses. I’m so glad I did all that because Jovana was an absolute pleasure to work with. So professional and made me feel at ease. The images came beautiful and I have so many great shots to choose from. I couldnt be happier!
I have worked with several photographers in the past but have decided to keep going back to Justin. I have done two photoshoots with Justin and was very pleased with the way both sets of pictures came out. He definitely has a good eye for photography – he sees the big picture but also pays attention to the details. He is also a great guy and easy to work with….flexible and responds quickly. I look forward to working with him again.
Marc is one of the best, most professional photographers I had the pleasure of working with. A real class act.

Tina and I had a 90-minute headshot session at the International Center of Photogrsphy in midtown Manhattan. I asked Tina to engage a makeup artist to prepare me for the shoot; while I think she did a good job, she could not stay for the shoot itself. The last two photographers with whom I have worked had theirs stay for the duration, and it was helpful to have the makeup rechecked and touched up – especially for a woman my age. I think Tina is a really good photographer – and an artist in her own right. But sometimes her focus on expression and composition means that she doesn’t always see the details of her subject. There were numerous shots that she selected for my review that I couldn’t use because a stray lock of hair was falling into my eye. I am not the one looking through the lens, and I can’t see what the photographer does. One word, and I could easily have fixed it. We also spent the majority of the session with me wearing the same blouse – even though we had selected 2 additional wardrobe changes. As a result, the number of usable photos in those two changes was somewhat limited. We did come up with a number of really good headshots; Tina retouched my favorites herself, and I am having two of them reproduced as I write this. I appreciated the energy and encouragement that Tina brought to her work, and I would recommend her work to my fellow actors.
What a great experience. Shanta is very professional and had a lot of patience with my 2 year old and crying newborn. She captured special moments of my daughter with her newborn brother. My pictures came out absolutely beautiful! Shanta has such a great eye and had great ideas. I am very happy and will using her for all my special occasions. She has done my pregnancy photos, newborn son photos and will be now doing my Christmas pictures.

Jeff is an exceptional photographer. family pictures can be a bit overwhelming especially with 2 kids under 5, but he made the whole process smooth. He gave good direction, was pretty patient and outgoing with the kids. The pictures are beautifully candid, you can feel the emotions in them. Can’t wait to work with him again!
Elvin is an outstanding photographer, truly empathic, professional, detail oriented and quick in response. Highly recommending for all kinds of events, private shoots and campaigns! Thank you so much!

Never had such authentic and beautiful photos taken of me as those taken by Steve. Ended up paying more to order additional photos, I loved them all so much and could not narrow down to just a few favorites. FYI I am 47 & terribly shy and awkward in front of a camera. Steve was extremely professional, patient and persistent and gave me great direction to get the shots. He has an intuitive instinct, high expectations for his work and the greatest integrity. So much so that at first, the pictures weren’t “working” according to him, so he retreated and booked a studio where we got our amazing shots. Most photographers would not have spent the extra time, would have just ploughed through. Not Steve. Consider yourself lucky if you can book with Steve. My guess is he won’t be available for thumbtack booking for long. THX Steven!! You are amazing!!!

Eden and her mom, Christine, came into the studio at the end of June. Mom had pre-booked her session well in advance and I was so looking forward to meeting them. You could immediately tell the love they had for each other. Some of my favorite images from this session was the ones of mom and baby together, so sweet and precious.

Maria was amazing to work with! This is my first pregnancy and I wanted to memorialize it with maternity photos. I had posted that I was looking for a photographer and Maria responded quickly and was quick to answer any and all questions. Her responsiveness and professionalism made it an easy decision to make to hire her. Pregnancy has increased my anxiety levels and she was patient with all of my questions along the way as we neared the date of my shoot. I changed location on her several times trying to decide where I wanted it too and she showed up with a smile ready to go. Her guidance and ease while shooting was also much appreciated. Even my husband, who was not keen on doing this, had a great time. Best of all the photos came out so beautiful!! I cannot wait for her to come out for newborn photos. I definitely recommend Maria, the quality of her photography and pricing cannot be beat!
Beth is an incredible photographer and person. It was my first time having headshots taken so I did not know what to expect. I felt at ease during the whole session; it was truly a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Beth took a variety of angle shots so it was just not limited to the standard headshot position. The photos came out very professional and natural which was what I was looking for! I highly recommend Beth for anyone looking to have their photos taken for any occasion. Thank you so much, Beth!

We absolutely loved our entire experience with Natalia. She responded very quickly, and stayed in touch after we confirmed the booking, sending us suggestions for the locations, and inquiring about our ideas and themes for the shoot. Her communications before the meeting show her genuine interest in ensuring her clients get what they want and need out of the shoot. It was very easy to spend an hour with Natalia, while taking pictures. There were no awkward moments, and the setting for the photos happened very naturally. Natalia is also really great at giving you a quick sneak peek at the photos during the session, that way if you see that you loved the composition, but hate your face or pose in it, you can quickly re-do it. No later than 12hrs after the shoot, Natalia responded with 120 proofs, of which we could choose 40 to be retouched, and available for download. She returned the final, downloadable photos 3 days after we finalized our selection, which is super fast for photographers. Because Natalia lets you peek at the photos during the shoot and select your favorites out of the preselected 120, you end up with 40 photos that you absolutely love, and you can use all of them (no blinking or hair in your mouth). Overall, we highly recommend Natalia for her professionalism and great photo quality, and hope to have a chance to work with her again!

Laura was amazing! She took the time to get every shot just right. While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible! She is a sweetheart. She’s been great at doing light retouching. Nothing drastic. My agents are thrilled, and so am I. I will definitely go back to Laura!!!

Joe was extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with many photographers before and Joe was definitely the most “on-top-of-it”! Besides being easy to work with, the work product was amazing. Very clear and professional head shots. The subjects of his photos said he made them feel comfortable.

Peter took newborn photos of our daughter. He was an absolutely whiz with our tiny newborn, and I was thoroughly impressed with his ability to calm her and get some amazing pictures from her… even on a fussy day! We, and our family and friends, are beyond delighted with the images he captured of our little one. Could not be happier with the special moments he captured.

Emily is one of the top photographers I’ve worked with. I hired her to shoot at a fundraiser gala and was extremely pleased. Here’s me with two of my guests – isn’t she great at capturing the moment? Also, Emily had the photos to me in extremely quick fashion. What a great experience!
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.
The whole session was just really nice and relaxed. Eden was a very good sleeper and we were able to get the sling hanging from the branch image. This type of image is beautiful, but it is a composite of more than one image. The safety of the baby is always my first priority, and babies need to be so zonked out and asleep to get images like this. Luckily, Eden decided to be very accommodating! She even decided to grace us with a smile later in the session. : -)
I chose Danielle after interviewing 3 Photographers by email/phone. Our project was a modern, fun family photo. Danielle was on time, easy to work with, and had a great eye for capturing us at our best, as well as the best background options. We had daylight, dusk and evening shots and it was so difficult to decide what to buy as we had so many wonderful choices. I highly recommend her.
Mary did a wonderful job!! She was very professional and accommodating to all our requests for certain photographers.

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.

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.
The entire experience with Mary was really great from start to finish. She was friendly, professional and most importantly, genuinely passionate about what she was doing. Mary was punctual and she was immediately polite, reassuring and excited. We took plenty of photos at City Hall, while walking to the subway, during the ride and then finally at Central Park with some great fall colours in the background. The pictures came out great and we loved talking to Mary and Ali, who were courteous and professional at all times. Mary was really generous with her pricing and took into account the fact that it was just my wife and I. Unlike a lot of quotes from other photographers, hers was one of the few that really reflected this fact. We highly recommend Mary.
