Really impressed by the professionalism and efficiency from start to finish, from the booking to receiving the finished product. Family photo shoot was fun and relaxed, photos were natural as opposed to a formal sitting portrait. Photographer suggested flattering angles, positions and poses. Excellent quality results! All in all, a great experience! I would highly recommend Ross Fraser Photography

Gary is not only a brilliant photographer, but an exceptionally nice guy. Which is really helpful if you are like me and not super comfortable in front of a camera. I have basically one picture-ready expression (2 if you count “Deer-in-Headlights” – but I don’t), so to have Gary get 3 or 4 other good expressions was terrific. I’m so thrilled that we’ll be going back to have a family portrait taken for our Christmas card.

Great experiences with Courtney with newborn and family photography. She is truly a muse with children though! So impressed with how she captures the little ones! Highly recommended.

We hired Juliana to do a family portrait session on a very warm June evening! My 1 year old and 5 year old (and our dog) weren't terribly cooperative, and I was worried she wouldn't get any good shots! She was so sweet and accommodating - not to mention, PATIENT - and assured me that she'd been able to get some great pics when I started to get worried because my little terrors wouldn't cooperate. She posted a sneak peek a couple days after our shoot, and we got the full gallery a couple weeks later. We were so pleased with all the pictures! Juliana was very prompt, professional, reasonably priced, and a pleasure to work with. We recommend her highly!

Danielle was a great photographer. She was accommodating, thoughtful, creative, and kept great communication. We had to change the date of our photoshoot a few times due to conflicts and she was more than willing to work with us! We hired her for family portrait with a 6 mo old. She was patient and understanding that my little guy was not always the most cooperative. In the end, she got some really great photos! We are very happy with the quality and thoughtfulness of the photo session. We would definitely use Danielle/Muddbug Photography again!!

We recently had engagement photos taken by LoudRock Studio. What an excellent experience. Aleksandra not only had great "props" to use in the photos that went well with the outside photos but her ability to capture us (even when we were not posing and expecting it) and the love and happiness between us was outstanding. The quality of the photos taken are the best I have ever had done. She was also so personable that we were both very relaxed and had a great time getting them done. I have no negative comments and would recommend LoudRock Studio for any portrait needs!!! Thanks LoudRock!!!!

Carol photographed our family portraits, as well as headshots and action shots for my fitness business. During the family photo shoot, she did an amazing job of evoking the natural personalities of our kids....I am IN LOVE with results. For my fitness shoot, I was very nervous as I felt "exposed" and this was my first time doing a shoot like this, but Carol immediately put me at ease. I had a blast during the shoot and ended up with some great shots for my website. Trust Carol, allow her to get creative, and you will not be disappointed!

We used Sharyl, at Laughter Loves Photography, for our children's portraits. We did an indoor session, although an outdoor session was available if we wanted. As we had a then one year old, we opted for a more controlled atmosphere, and were more than happy with our decision. She did a great job of entertaining the kids throughout the session, was quick thinking and willing to change tactics when it wasn't working out, and still managed to take fabulous shots of my squirmy little ones. There were several fantastic portraits, it was easy for everyone in my family to find a favorite shot. The prices were very reasonable, and everything was handled very quickly and carefully. I happen to know that Sharyl also does commissioned art (watercolor, pencils, etc) and can turn any random photo, say, from a phone, and turn it into something worthy of hanging over the mantle. I'll be returning to her for all my portraits, and am very happy to recommend her to anyone who needs great photos, for a great price, with a great photographer!

I was looking to secure a photographer to capture my Grandpa's 87th birthday celebration. I live in Florida and was skeptical on booking a photographer strictly based on online reviews. Javier is very professional, punctual and responded within a timely manner to questions concerns/edits. Affordable prices for quality service! I would definitely rehire/refer his work.

When looking for a photographer you don't want to just pick someone who is good at taking pictures. You want someone who captures relationship, meaning, memories, and emotions. I often stare at my wall of photos and marvel at my sweet daughter and husband. Kevin has truly captured the magic of our family together and the photos I have will be cherished for a lifetime. I am so thankful I have found kevin as our photographer! I definitely recommend Kevin Keith photography!

We could not be more impressed with Matt McNeal or Jukeboxx Media!!! My husband and I were looking for a replacement photographer, and we were stunned with what we got. We had several very professional and informative meetings with Matt, great communication about what we wanted and what he would do, and such patience and fun throughout our whole day! Matt helped us stay on track, led us through some of the traditional aspects (cutting our wedding pie, sharing wine, etc), and did not mind doing additional posed pictures with friends and family--I had not expected or thought about doing before, but he made everyone feel special and included. I would completely recommend and if given the chance, would love to work with him and this company again. The photos arrived on a website that we could download at our leisure exactly one month from our wedding--what a wonderful surprise!

Thomas did our wedding photography and we absolutely loved him and his work. We were able to sit down with him before our wedding and received valuable information about suggestions and details we wanted to include on the day. At the wedding he gathered all the family together for pictures (which is not an easy task) and picked out spots to take photos while I was busy soaking in all the details. I was comfortable and able to be myself around him. I never had a worry because I was secure throughout the day knowing he was capturing all of the best moments. He is easy to work with, both in setting up meetings, the day of, and when he delivered the images. We trust him enough to recommend him to friends, many of which have chosen him as their photographer and they were all impressed as well. We will treasure his photos forever!

I hate to have my photo taken but, when I needed a new "headshot" for business purposes, I selected Gwen. She quickly put me at ease during the process, was careful with lighting, and suggested several poses and backdrops. Now, having received the photos from her, I find that I like them all! I am now having to select the best one from the several good ones rather than repeating my past experiences of trying to choose the least objectionable photo from the choices. She is very talented both with the technical issues involved in portrait photography and the esthetic concerns. I highly recommend her.

Manda is an excellent photographer. She listened to what I envisioned for my daughter's first birthday photos and completely brought those ideas to life with her own added creativity. The end product I received from her will be photos of my daughter that I will truly treasure for my whole life.

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.
