Ivan took family photos of us at an outdoor shoot a few weeks ago. We really enjoyed working with him; he was great with my children and put us all at ease. He was extremely professional and had scouted the park location for good spots prior to our arrival. He was really directive and the results were AMAZING! We love the pictures. I urge you to hire Ivan, he's awesome!

We let 3 photographers do a test shoot. Greg was by far the best! We needed lifestyle shots so we gave Greg some samples. He found the model, picked the location, and without direction on his own produced the best shots we have ever seen

Everything about Stephen and Chris is absolutely amazing. Professional, respectful, personal, talented, patient and pleasant to work with. All of that is so hard to find these days! We started off with an awesome engagment shoot in newport and recieved our pictures in no time. Stephen helped make my day even better knowing that they were getting all the shots I would want. My husband and I could not have asked for better people to capture our best day ever. They were there with us all day and always ready to take the shot. I had a huge wedding party and they are quite the rambunctious crowd and I know there are not many photographers that would have been able to handle us. They were incredible. And they handled my huge, loud, Portuguese family very well. My husband and I are also photographers and choosing other people to photograph our wedding was HUGE. We are so happy with our decision and would use them again, I'm already thinking 1 year anniversary! HIGHLY recommended.

Dennise is an amazing photographer. This was the first time we were taking professional pictures with our dogs so we were a little nervous of what to expect with them, but Dennise managed it awesome. Dennise even brought them a toy that kept them attentive during the photo shoot and gave it to our dogs as a gift after! So nice. She found amazing spots to take our family pictures, and after we saw the final photos, we loved every single one of them. Definitely recommend her.

We did outdoor fall photos for my almost 2 year old. She was not into pictures that day but Leah was patient and not bothered by it. Even with my little one not being as smiley as I had hoped Leah was able to get some great shots. What more than I had thought. She was on time for our session and picked a great location for pictures. I would definately recommend her! Thanks Leah!!!

Cathie is a talented photographer with an eye for catching special moments. As a fellow professional photographer, I am incredibly picky when it comes to photos of my family, and Cathie did a wonderful job at our family session. She'll definitely be taking more photos of us (ones that include me, for a change!) in the years to come.

Terie Michon has a real nac of capturing the right image, story, or message you are trying to express. She is very open minded to the customer needs and wants but will also give you an honest and professional opinion for what would be best. I could not have gotten a better person to help me represent our business. Since she proved what an excellent job she was able to do we also have her for all of our family portraits. We will never use another person for our business nor our family images. My motto when you find the best no need for the rest.

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.
