"Sasha is not only an exceptional photographer with supreme talent, but an incredible human being with the most kind and warm spirit! She did a photoshoot for my 2 year old's birthday, covering the event as well as doing portraits for our family. From the onset, she was remarkable in every aspect…not only was she responsive and professional but also very accommodating and personable! She spent a long time on the phone with me to discuss the project. I was initially very nervous because my baby had stranger anxiety and is camera shy. Sasha put me at ease right away, sharing ideas about how she would make it a fun for my baby and ease her into it. She was very meticulous in noting all my requirements and very cooperative with all my demands. On the day of the photoshoot, she came early to help us setup and got some props and play things for my baby. I was very touched to see how loving she was with my baby and carried her around to make her feel at ease. Everyone in our family loved her and she made the whole process so seamless. Sasha was also very patient and diligent during the subsequent phase of reviews and edits. I have to admit, I'm not an easy person to please but when I saw the finished deliverables with beautiful pictures and absolutely stunning video, I was floored! Despite the low light condition indoors, her photos came our brilliant and vibrant. Best of all, she made everyone look gorgeous! :) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her work! Sasha will be our go to person for all our photography needs going forward. I would recommend her whole-heartedly for any events as well as personal and professional photoshoots."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do photographers charge for family portraits?

Family portraits are a great way to mark the passage of time, create lifelong keepsakes and have gorgeous-looking photos for your annual holiday card. The national average cost for hiring family photographers ranges from $150 to $200. Pricing can range higher depending on where you live, length of the photo shoot, the number of edited photos you request, and the background and reputation of your family photographer. Before hiring, make sure you understand their fees up front. Ask how many finished images are included in the quoted price and whether you will receive all the photos taken (not just edited photos). Ask whether you’ll be able to download digital photos or if you’ll have to print them or purchase digital copies through the photographer. Here are some average examples of family photographer pricing:

  • $175 for a one-hour studio session in Kansas.
  • $200 for a one-hour studio or outdoor session in Georgia. Includes two outfit changes, access to an online gallery, and about 200 high-resolution, edited digital photo files on a DVD, with permission to print.
  • $400 for a one-hour outdoor session in Southern California. Includes 25-30 fully edited photos accessible online or via CD/DVD.
  • $425 or more for a one-hour outdoor or in-home session in Illinois. Includes more than 50 professionally edited images, online access and print release.

Do you tip a photographer for family photos?

Tipping a photographer for family portraits is not standard etiquette. A great way to recognize a family photographer who goes above and beyond is to write them a glowing review. You probably found your photographer by reading online reviews, so paying it forward by letting everyone know how much you appreciate their work is a great gift. Write your review after they have delivered the final edited photos on time and you’ve confirmed that you’re happy with the terrific portraits they took.

What should you wear for a family photo?

A family photographer captures your family in a series of professionally edited portraits. You can be goofy, you can be formal, you can be exactly how you want to be. To that end, you can wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident — feeling good translates to looking good in photos. However, top family photographers do have some style suggestions that will make your family photos more visually cohesive:

  • Ask the photographer for color suggestions if you’re doing an outdoor photo shoot. Location and time of day can affect which shades will fade in the sunlight and what will stand out in a good way.
  • Stay away from a mix of stripes or plaids on multiple people — the effect is too busy.
  • Steer clear of tiny patterns, which blend together too much.
  • Avoid wearing matching outfits.
  • Do wear outfits that are complementary in color.
  • Choose color over black-and-white outfits.
  • Do choose a theme, such as pastels, fall colors or summer colors.
  • Opt for tonally similar colors.  
  • Go easy on makeup for outdoor photo shoots.
