I had seen Bree’s work on Facebook when a longtime friend had some pictures done for her boyfriend. My friend looked beautiful, and I wondered if my hubby would be interested in me taking any pics as a present for his big 4-0. I showed him Bree’s photos and he was all in. We looked at other photographers and their work, and we agreed Bree’s work was definitely the right style for us. I didn’t need to look like an art piece, heck, if I turned out half as gorgeous as my friend, it would all be okay by me! So I picked up the phone on a Saturday afternoon and talked to Bree. Working with Bree was easy. In one phone call I was set up for a session with so many choices I thought my head would spin. While I had the option of choosing an outfit from her extensive collection with lots of size range, I ended up using an outfit from home with one small missing piece. I could not find shoes I liked, and here was Bree to the rescue with not only one, but 3 pairs of shoes to choose the right pair! My makeup made me look at least 10 years younger, my hair was beautiful, and the Mimosas divine! Bree is really good at getting to know you in a short period of time so you are comfortable and opens up her home studio in an absolutely welcoming way. She’s good at her job, and has great passion for showing her subject in a way that is visually striking, and yet very true to the personality of the person on the other end of the camera. I was apprehensive, being in the midst of a weight loss journey, and not being as confident at photographing well, and Bree put me at ease. The only complaint I had was that I smiled so much I should have brought Vaseline for my teeth like a supermodel. :-) Then we got the images. I was so beautiful. Shames me to say I forgot I could look so beautiful. I don’t think my husband has skipped looking at the photos at least once a day since we got them back! This was a total game changer for my self confidence and I would do it again in a minute- and then do it again!

Our medical office hired Shawn to take some professional portrait photos for our website! He also replied quickly once I put in a request through thumbtack. He was accommodating and worked very hard to get many shots! He had great ideas about lighting, style, posing, and decor. He had a great artistic eye! He was also very social and fun to work with. I would completely recommend him! And I would most definitely hire him again!

It was so great working with Zoe on a recent family photo shoot at my house. She was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. She was flexible with her schedule when I had to move the date due to one of my kids being sick. And she and her assistant, John, were great at working with my three kids during the shoot. It was a great family portrait session and the photos turned out beautifully.

Working with Jason on my daughter's senior pictures was such a fantastic experience from start to finish! Jason is very engaging, and was super responsive, flexible, and thoughtful throughout the whole process. He is a super nice guy, and it was clear that he wanted us to love both our experience and our portraits. And...his photos are beautiful. He has a great eye for incorporating light, depth and color, capturing personality, and for framing the images creatively. He was very relaxed and easy to work with, and he made the process fun! He really cared about getting us a great outcome, and he actively listened to our preferences and needs. Jason made the whole process simple -- from helping us identify a beautiful and easy location that gave us both urban and natural settings in one place, to working out a session plan so our time was used really well so we could get a lot of different settings, poses and outfits worked into our session time. After our session, Jason was super helpful in final edit/retouch, and sending sample images back and forth to make sure we were thrilled with our final portraits - no surprises! I highly recommend Jason!

My family hired Katrina to do a photo shoot for my Grandmother's 75th Birthday dinner. The event was at Indochine Restaurant in Tacoma, and lasted for about four hours. Katrina was absolutely fantastic. We have a large family, and she accommodated all of our requests (which was no small feat) without any concern or frustration. We now have a large collection of family photos, both candid and staged, that have been beautifully edited and will don the walls of our homes for many years to come. I cannot thank her enough, and there is absolutely nothing I would change from the work that she completed. I would absolutely hire Katrina again, and you should too!

Wanted to let everyone know that our family of four had a beyond-amazing time getting our family portrait done by Rachel Alves. Our kids are 4 and 2 years old, so no small task indeed! The prices were good, the shoot so much fun, and most of all the products were fabulous - and surpassed our greatest expectations! Highly recommend this Queen Anne business person to all! Thanks.

I needed to have my corporate bio updated with current head- shot. I really don't like having my picture taken but Jeff made me comfortable and encouraged me to just be myself. The shoot was easy and dare I say, fun! I have had so many compliments on the final photograph--from friends and colleagues alike--but my favorite has to be "It looks just like you, which makes it great." Jeff has a way of bringing out your inner-self--who you really are--and the result is an image that captures the spirit, not just the face. I even got a couple of extra prints for the folks . . . Very happy!

Edward was very accommodating of our group of 9 and patient with me as I planned this surprise photo shoot from Georgia.

Hired for engagement photos and couldn’t be happier. Amazing photographer, amazing eye, and super quick turnaround. We even laughed a lot during the session too, which really makes the sometimes “awkward” experience of having professional photos that much more relaxing. Would highly recommend Jennifer for portraits or, really, any photo needs.

Phil is an amazing photographer, and person, to work with. He's incredibly professional, easy to talk to, and is willing to explore new concepts and ideas with his clients. He will always make sure you're comfortable while still getting the best shot possible. I'd recommend him to everyone who wants to dive into modeling- or those who want family or personal photos. Regardless, Phil is wonderful and his photography is breathtaking.

Andrew Achong is AMAZING! He delivers high level professionalism with a unique creativity I have yet to see others exude. In fact, when we were taking bridal portraits at the White House hotel in Biloxi, several staff members commented on the uniqueness of the shoot. They said that they see photographers in there constantly but all of them take the same shots. Not Andrew. He was laying on the ground, climbing on furniture and ledges, making you laugh (or in my case, helping me not be awkward) all to get the PERFECT shot. He definitely knows how to capture the moment. He loves black and white photos but, of course, is amazing with color as well. He shares a passion for photography that so many photographers have lost. You can tell he has fun doing it and that shows in his work. He is super flexible, efficient and accommodating. So much so that he was able to get my bridal portraits shot, edited, printed and displayed in less than a week before the wedding. Delivering the impossible! He is an exceptional guy and an even more remarkable photographer. He is incredible to work with and you will not be disappointed in his shots. He excels in capturing action shots with impeccable timing. He is super responsive and we always received our pictures from him so quickly! I used him for family portraits (including one baby and a toddler {takes skill}), bridal portraits, rehearsal dinner, and our wedding. I can’t say enough positive things about Andrew. I absolutely, without a doubt, recommend his services to EVERYONE. You will love reliving the moment with his photos.

I'm glad that I chose Camille as our photographer. My boyfriend and I had a pleasure working with her. Her work is amazing and our photos came out beautiful. Looking through our photos brought me indescribable feelings of happiness, love, and every emotion in between! Camille was able to capture all the beautiful moments we can look back on for the rest of our lives. She's the type of photographer who will give you 100% of her timeless effort and will exceed your expectations! I would highly recommend her! She deserve to be recognized with her amazing skills.

Emily was easy and fun to work with. She spent time learning about the event as well as post the shoot hand delivered the pictures in a usb (beautiful bag). Lots of photographers are great on the event date but beyond that it is so hard to get in touch with them. Emily is a true professional. The pictures have come out really well as well. Thankyou Emily for making our day special !

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.
