I know you read these things and hope that someone will connect and send a sign to be the best person to choose for the opportunity, but I love what I do. I take photos to the fun level so every occasion is a memory along with the photos that came with them. My style is a little different. I take photos as well as my daughter. She gets the behind the scenes shots which makes the entire experience more memorable My favorite so far was an engagement photo shoot I did, I took my canon rebel t7 camera with me and also took my 9 year old little girl as well. As I was taking the breath taking photos, she was taking the behind the scenes photos of the poses and laughter with every memory. We then edited and the photos and also created a video of the bloopers for them to have as memories of the fun they had as well. 28 years old mother of 4. Iโ€™ve taking pictures since I was old enough to hold a camera. Family, child and siblings photography, pregnancy, engagements and weddings, holidays and anything reallySee more

My photography journey all started when I had my daughter six years ago. Growing up we never had many pictures of our family taken. I found myself wishing my family would have taken more family portraits or pictures so I could reminisce on special moments growing up. That gave me the passion to take up photography. So every chance I got to take a photo of family or friends I would snap away. I haven't put the camera down since. The camera is like my second child. I'm extremely passionate about what I do and will go the extra mile to catch your beautiful snapshots and freeze them in time. Capturing those moments is the most rewarding feeling. So let me capture those special moments with your family so you and your family will have photos to cherish in the future. I have much more reviews on my work on my facebook page. I'm fairly new to this Thumbtack site.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Whatโ€™s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a photographer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up an appointment or a consultation with a photographer near you during the COVID-19 pandemic is by conducting an online search. Start by scheduling a call with the photographer. If possible, it may be better to use a video call service so that the photographer can get an idea of the site location. Take this opportunity to discuss safety measures you can take during this time, as well as whether itโ€™s safe to complete the project now or simply postpone it.

How can I find out if a photographer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Consult your city or stateโ€™s government websites, which typically have information on which services are deemed essential during the pandemic. 

For national information, visit CISAโ€™s page on Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. Here, you can find 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that can continue operating unimpeded during the pandemic. But some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISAโ€™s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do photographers offer remote or virtual services?

Photography happens in person, but photographers may be able to offer other remote services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, they may be able to offer editing and other post-processing services. 

If you see that a photographer is offering remote services in their profile, contact them and ask what those services include.

Can I use digital payments to pay for wedding and event photography services?

As digital forms of payment and money transfer are becoming more popular, wedding and event photographers are likely to use digital services. These include PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo, Square Cash and more. As you search online for local wedding and event photographers, ask them if they accept digital payments and, if so, which ones you can use. And make sure to have a strategy in place for safe social distancing.

Does a photographer need to enter my home?

There are many situations in which a photographer does not need to enter your home. Itโ€™s not uncommon for people to prefer to have their pictures taken outdoors. If you're hiring a photographer, maintain safe distances, avoid being in the same room, sanitize all involved surfaces and conduct payment using digital platforms. You can discuss strategies as you complete your search for local photographers.

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 youโ€™ve confirmed that youโ€™re happy with the terrific portraits they took.

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 youโ€™ll be able to download digital photos or if youโ€™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.

When should you take newborn photos?

Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos โ€” the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the babyโ€™s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the babyโ€™s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the babyโ€™s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a babyโ€™s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesnโ€™t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.

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 โ€” 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 youโ€™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 โ€” 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.
