Giliane was an outstanding photographer! We had a large family with two 6 month olds and one 2 year old. She was very efficient and respectful of all of our needs when dealing with young children. She also captured amazing photographs! Would highly recommend her!!

Dave did a great job, even when it was freezing outside, for our family photo session. Dave was able to give us the country, rustic look we were looking for.

Mark was excellent. He absolutely knows what he's doing as a portrait/headshot photographer. His studio, setup, and equipment are top notch. For me, the goal of this was to have headsets for the next 5-10 years that I can use in professional environments and on linkedIn. I think having good photos for presentations is one of the subtle details that are important. Mark was able to finalize some excellent photos that I am 100% satisfied with. If I ever to do something else with photography (family photos, etc.), I'd go to Mark first.

Dan was awesome! Trust me, I am hard to please and he did a great job with the pictures of this listing. I never used a photographer before for my listings, and now I will never list a house without photographer! Dan was very reasonably priced in comparison to the many I checked, had great ideas for staging the rooms, came out day after I called, pictures were back to me that night! Had questions abot pics and how they worked on the MLS and he answered my calls at 8pm on a Friday night! Couldn't be more pleased :)

Elle of Nouvelle is armed with such myriad talents that it was comparable to having hired an Artistic Director, wardrobe specialist, set designer, and conceptual consultant as well as a photographer. She was very creative and thoughtful in scouting locations and checking light levels in so many places. Prior to the wedding, she helped the bride conceptualize the vision and offered many wonderful ideas and inspiration.The way that the event was captured through her magical lens was extraordinary and the photos are absolutely priceless. I recommend getting Nouvelle at your event now before she becomes exceedingly (and deservingly) expensive.

Was an amazing experience. Had a beautiful and professional space. Talked about what I envisioned for the shots before beginning, and allowed me to collaborate in my preferences for the shot. Every couple frames he would show me the shots and asked me what I liked and didn't like, and we'd work off of that. Was quick and efficient, I got eight photos I really liked in under an hour with an outfit change (private dressing room as well). After the meeting, I got my proofs the next day, and once I chose my favorites, I got the final edits the FOLLOWING DAY. In my past experience with photographers it has taken weeks and even months to get the proofs, and then a similar amount of time to get the edits, so I was beyond impressed. Was very flexible and open to new ideas, I would 100% recommend. Only bummer was that his address was wrong on my maps and his sign was still up at the old place, so I stood outside the locked door trying to contact for about 20 minutes before he responded and told me that was the wrong place. Luckily, his new place was right across the street and he walked over to help me find my way.

I contacted Courtney for a family shoot. She recommended the perfect location for what I had envisioned. Because of weather and health reasons, I had to reschedule our session more than 4 times and Courtney was always very understanding and accommodating. She was awesome with my little kids, especially my 4 years old boy who wanted nothing to do with pictures! She saved the day and managed to make him have fun and give his cutest smile. After only a week, I received my photo gallery, which is very fast! Some time I had to wait a month with other photographers. Pictures are terrific! Highly recommend Courtney!

Stephie and her husband Tony were great. Stephie took the photo's and Tony directed the shots. They made a beautiful team both working together and a beautiful couple. We had wedding photo's taken. We had the normal poised photo's in the chapel, then some outdoor photo's and some photo's of the dinner. Stephie also took shots using her excellent creative eye to take some very creative shots. We recommend Stephie Marie Photography to anyone who's looking for great photo's for any occasion weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, portraits etc... Excellent Team...Excellent Photo's.

Noemi was the perfect photographer for our family photos. She was responsive, punctual, and personable. She had great ideas for the photos and not only captured our posed shots, but took some candids along the way to really capture our family dynamic. She was patient with our three-year-old when he was ornery and matched our six-year-old enthusiasm. If you're looking for a great family photographer who will make sure to get the perfect shot, definitely hire Noemi.

We had a family photography session with Jody. We wanted pictures of our daughter who is 10months old with the Fall colors in the background. She was extremely patient and made us feel comfortable. We couldn't get as many fall colors as we wanted due to our timing and location. However, she did a fab job with the pictures based on whatever was available. Thanks Jody and keep up the good work.

You have just found the photographer of your dreams. We met Albert here on my phone and within 2 days he made our Instagram post take off. Modern Shelving is our business and we have have met photographers all over the USA this year! Albert is one of the TOP 3! Check out AltrFit on Flickr under our account: Modern Shelving and you will see what I mean. More work is coming his way ASAP.

We really love working with Anders for our family / wedding photo shoot. It is a wedding photo shoot with our families, making up for our earlier elopement wedding. Working with a large group of 9 people in a large setting (the landscape arboretum), Anders was extremely patience. He was in the car with us driving around to find the perfect spot with the best lighting. He made sure he caught the best moment of everyone. Some of our family members were not used to photo shoot in motions and got nervous with cameras. He tried to hide when he took their pictures. He has great appreciation of nature and landscape. The places he chose was stunning, even it was his first time to the arboretum. He sent us the photos 2 days after the event. We were so happy with the photos!!! The tone was adjusted to be soft and poetic. People is well balanced with the beautiful nature. Everyone looks great in the photos! I would definitely work with him again in our future photo shoots.

Angela did family photos for our immediate and extended family of 10. She was in time, flexible, creative, patient and ultimately we loved the outcome. Our pictures were great! The value was very fair as well. We would hire her again any day!

We have used Steve for friends and family portraits for a few years. He does an excellent job with picking ambience and fine tuning the photographs. But do make clear what you are looking for. Emailing or texting him is best way to communicate. Nice guy.

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.
