For starters, I recommend checking out your friends and family members’ recent professional portraits.  See if the style is something you like and if they recommend someone they’ve had a great experience with.  These personal reviews from people you trust are always preferable, but what if you just moved to the area and don’t have those resources? You’ll probably turn to the web (Google or your favorite search engine) and will need to consider a few things to refine your search:

  • Photography type: Family, children, baby, newborn, pet, executive, corporate…
  • Location: photography studio, your home, outdoor at a park, urban city backdrop, beach…
  • Style: contemporary, traditional, funky, whimsical…
  • Price range

Once you’ve narrowed your search, start looking at professional photographers’ website galleries. You’ll want their style to reflect what you’re looking for. For example, let’s say you need a family portrait to hang on your wall as well as holiday cards, and your style is very contemporary with clean lines. If you really want a black and white portrait against a white studio background and you’re looking a Houston photographers online gallery, see no in-studio images and all of their family portrait examples are on location outdoors, then their style might not be a good fit for you. Or let’s say you find several Houston photographers who do amazing commercial photography and business headshots, but has no pets or children in their portfolio, then this would probably not be the ideal portrait photographer to capture your baby’s laughter during their 1st birthday cake smash photo.
