We used thumbtack to look for portrait photographer for our small startup business. Among all interested photographers, Patrick provided the most prompt responses to all of our requests. He listened to our ideas and made several good suggestions on how and where to shoot. And he was willing to work around our busy work schedule. Overall a great experience. Our pictures turn out really nice. We'd highly recommend Patrick.

Jason Craig from Steady State Studios was from beginning to end very responsive, always answering questions in a timely manner. He was professional and friendly, very easy to work with in person and in writing! He was affordable and well worth the money spent and the time communicating with him. We had many people at our wedding commenting on how professional, friendly, and attentive he was! He was great with the children and the adults, and captured the big moments, while also tailoring the photography to the requests we had made. He was organized and showed up at the right time. I was a stress-mess when Jason showed up since I was not ready yet and did not want to make him wait, and he was so patient and calm and reassured me that it was fine. Jason did not make me or anyone else feel rushed, and everyone had a great time with him as the photographer. Our pictures turned out great and he provided multiple ways for us to obtain our photos simply. He was quick to get the pictures to us and we had so much fun looking through them. Very appreciative that we were lucky to have him at our wedding (:

I've had the privilege of working with Jerrad on several occasions, including family photo sessions and photographing my son's newborn photos. Jerrad is very professional and helps make what could be a stressful day very enjoyable. He takes the time to make each session personal and unique to what we envision, and didn't stop until we got the shots we wanted. He also helped us find other creative ways to capture moments that we couldn't see. He has a great eye for candids and we are so thrilled with the outcome. We will definitely be using him in the future and would recommend him to anyone looking to make lasting memories!

Kelly Mooney is absolutely the best photographer our family of 6 has ever used! She is creative, and truly captures the essence of the people she is taking photos of. She has taken 2 of our children's senior photos, family photos and birthday party photos. She has a natural ability to bring out the best in those she is photographing.

I have used Deanna for family portraits as well as for professional headshots. She is able to capture moments in her portrait session that are not staged or fake. Her use of natural light captures her subject's true beauty. Deanna works efficiently. When I needed headshots for a publication her turn around time was very quick.

It was a pleasure working with Kelvin on my daughter's senior pictures. He is very easy-going and was able to curb her initial panic and get here to enjoy herself. The photos turned our beautiful - so hard to choose my favorite. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a great photographer. My daughter says that Kelvin "is nice and fun to work with. He had some great ideas and the pics came out amazing."

Juan is a treasure we were fortunate to discover in Portland when we were searching for a photographer to shoot our family's portrait. Nothing disturbs this artist and all our requests were satisfied. He is a true professional and we are very happy with the photographs. Hire Juan and your photography concerns will be answered.

Ryan Erlandsen Photography is amazing. From wedding photos to family photos, he's always provided the best customer service and amazing, quality photos. We've used him multiple times in the past 5 years and have referred him to others who have been just as pleased. He's easy to work with, listens to your ideas, wants, needs, and is professional. Our family looks forward to many more photo sessions to capture special moments with Ryan and highly recommend him.

Stefani did our family portraits; we LOVED them! My daughter (and husband) aren't great with cameras on demand and she was wonderful with them. Her props and techniques were the perfect way to get some of the most amazing candid family photos ever. I will be recommending Stefani to anyone who asks about family photos and we hope to work with her again for updated photos (and hopefully maternity shots one day :) ) I literally could not pick my favorites out of the 100 something photos we got.

Couldn’t be happier with Rob`s work for our pregnancy shoots! I love my maternity photos – it was such a wonderful thing to do just before giving birth! Rob was absolutely incredible to work with. He is experienced, very creative and his warm personality brings out the best in his subjects, especially if you are unsure of how to "act" in front of the camera. He makes you feel completely relaxed and at ease, and it truly makes a difference in your photos. I have to say Rob actually makes taking photos fun! I'd consider myself not photogenic until I started working with Rob - he really works his magic and can give just the right direction to make all the difference. I absolutely love my maternity photos and can’t believe how fantastic Rob made me look just a week before giving birth! Him and his assistant were patient but professional, giving us tips throughout the session to make sure the pictures came out great. At every moment they were kneeling, bending, standing on chairs just to get the shot they wanted. Rob is very dedicated to get the best shots, it is clear though that he truly loves what he does. Robs photos are stunning, natural and proudly hanging throughout our home. We will treasure our photos for years to come and will likely be back for future family shoots. Rob is also great at portraits and wedding photography. Check out his blog for loads more cool pics. He has an incredible eye for the "right" shot, being a top notch photographer and we are so happy we hired him! I would recommend him for any special occasion you want to remember forever.

Adam was so easy to work. We requested candid photography for our event and the pics came out very good. Adam came in few mins early to the event and made sure he has all the right view and angles to cover the pics. He also bought portable lights for us as add ons to take few portrait pics of our family. Thanks Adam- we would hire you again and recommend to our friends and family Thanks Raj

We had Kevin do our family portraits 3 years ago. When it was time for our daughter to have her senior portrait we knew Kevin would do a great job. My daughter's senior portraits are outstanding! Most importantly my daughter is her own worst critic and she loved how they turned out. Thank you Kevin for the time you spent and your creativity.

We had family portraits done outside when our son turmed one and loved them. A second session with Jennifer for photos of our 2 week old daughter.

Working with Chad was a great experience! He was very professional while still being personal and made me feel comfortable in front of the camera. I needed some new portraits and headshots done for professional and personal use that I could use on my website. We went to a couple locations that were close by and did multiple poses so I had plenty of pictures to choose from. Chad brought his lighting studio with him to each location and was very knowledgable with lighting and being able to capture different looks that I didn't even know I had. I have already recommended him to a friend of mine and will definitely use him again.

I used E&B for professional headshots/portraits and it was an overall great experience. I love the resulting images and it was an overall great experience. Chris makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and you can tell that he is comfortable behind it. I am definitely using E&B as my go to photography company for any future portraits or family photo sessions.

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.
