Verified review

Family pictures are always a nightmare because you don't know what you will get when so many personalities collide. Throw in a dash of heat, tantrum driven three year old and antsy dog and you're sure to send anyone running in the opposite direction. My family has experienced our share of photographers but this year we had the pleasure of having Chuck and Erika take our pictures; they were everything we could have hoped for and more. Professional and patient beyond belief. I would gladly work with them again and/or refer anyone to them

What first drew us to David was the great quality of his pictures; his album and arrangements stood out in contrast to other photographers who left something to be desired. We knew, with him, we would not be disappointed. We were right! The finished product was beautiful and he gave us some of the best pictures we've ever had. He was also wonderful to work with: kind, considerate, funny, and always professional. I would recommend him to anyone I know!

We have used Justin as our family photographer for many years now. He has done our engagement, wedding, and multiple family photo sessions for us. He has always been able to accommodate us on short notice and has even come to our home to capture our families memories! He does excellent work and I receive many compliments on the portraits that hang on my walls! I would recommend his work to anyone!

Our kids are so happy, as are we, that we didn’t have to spend the weekend working on these projects endlessly. This would have been so stressful for my family to attempt and Kevin and Antwan NAILED it! Thank you SO much.

Lavar's work is amazing. He catches views that people wouldn't see with their own eye. Lavar took my senior pictures and prom pictures. It was hard for me to believe that those pictures were of me because they came out so well and the shots were perfect. I was amazed! By far one of the best photographers I've met.

Arastasia is by far one of the sweetest and most professional photographers I have ever worked with. She has an eye for surroundings, poses and details that I would never in a million years think of. She is patient and answered all of my questions, with quick response time, no matter what time of the day I would call or text (I work crazy hours). Thank you so much for capturing priceless memories.

Melinda was absolutely fantastic. She was very informative and flexible with everything I requested. She was able to get the candid shots I was looking for. The biggest thing I was looking for was to get shots that were "in the moment" and she delivered! I highly recommend Melinda to anyone who needs a professional photographer with a great eye.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
