"Alex was awesome! He did our maternity photo shoot at the Longwood Gardens, in Kenneth Square, PA. He was extremely professional, quick to respond, and attentive to our needs. He also edited our pictures and gave us the final copies within 48 hours!! Initially when I was looking for a photographer on Thumbtack, I had mentioned that my wife planned to wear a dress with a long train that would need to be tossed up in the air. I also mentioned that I wanted to do the photoshoot at Longwood Gardens. Unlike other photographers who gave generic quotes, Alex gave me a personalized response saying that he would bring someone who would toss the train and he also mentioned that he had a membership to the Longwood Gardens (which he did not have to do, this helped us save some money, overall I felt that this was above and beyond what he needed to do)!! He showed up early the day of the shoot and we had the pleasure of meeting his wife who was also his partner that day, and they had already scoped out the best places to take pictures. His wife was very complimentary throughout the whole process and they worked hand in hand to achieve our desired results!! Alex along with his wife was instrumental in finding the perfect settings, picking the best poses, and just was overall excellent at accommodating us and our vision for the photo shoot! Both Alex and his wife were great, they are a fun couple and the pictures turned out gorgeous! We will definitely go with Alex again and have no problem recommending him to anyone for any event as he is very capable."

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.
