Beanna has done family photos for us twice. You can tell she loves what she does and doesn't mind singing, laughing, or dancing to get my slow-to-warm-up kid to smile. We've had others do photos who can't get him to warm up to relax for quality pictures, but she's patient and engaging with him. She has a good eye for scenery and lighting and gets genuinely giddy about good shots that she captures!

We could not have asked for a better photographer! Our family had photos done while visiting beautiful Savannah. Hayden was very professional and easy to work with. The photographs were exactly what we were looking for, and more! Excellent quality and a reasonable price. We highly recommend Hayden Banks Photography.

The entire experience was wonderful. My daughter was not happy I was making her have pictures made (teenagers...😏)... however, Ashley made her feel comfortable and was a joy to work with. Excellent communication. We absolutely loved the finished product as well! If ever back in the area I plan to use her for family photos in the future!

Asa is a professional photographer with a great sense of composition who arrived well ahead of schedule, and spent a lot of time taking a lot of photos to insure that our event was recorded beautifully. He uploads the images while shooting to insure capture. He has a very pleasant personality and a clear love for his work. He continues to be responsive as we ask for special effects for some selected images. Asa will always be our first choice for future events.

I first had Kimberly organize and clean my house and have since had her clean-up my construction job-sites and cook for me multiple times. Her work ethic and integrity are outstanding. I would recommend her for anything she does. I'm looking forward to having her take my family portrait of my son and I in the near future.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
