How much does family portrait photography cost?

Mar 30, 2018

Spending time with your family can be a delight. Whether it's a trip to the beach or playing sport together, candid pictures can help you remember great times together. You may also want to preserve special moments in your life or in that of your children.

But if you're behind the camera taking pictures, how will you get the shot? You'll want to hire a pro to take your family portrait. They have skills to make you all look your best and give you great memories to look back on.


Type of Photos
Group Family Portrait

This is a classic choice for your photos! If you're going for professional portraits, make sure to get the whole family into the shot. Whether it's a casual shot or something posed, you'll be happy to have your whole family included. This photo will last a long time!

Couples Portrait

Having a photo of you and your special one is also important. You can use it to display your love around the home. It can also come in handy if you're planning ahead for engagement announcements or other ways to celebrate being in love!

Newborn Portrait

A pro can help you capture the early days of your new addition with high-quality portraits. These are the first photos of your little one, so it's important that you get good ones! They can also help if you want the parents or other family members in the shots as well.

Graduation Portrait

A graduation is a big event in anyone's life! Whether it's from primary, secondary, or further education, you'll want a photo to commemorate this moment. A pro can make your budding academic's portrait formal or candid to suit their style. Display the portraits to show off their accomplishments!

Maternity Portrait

Expecting a child is a beautiful time in a woman's life. A maternity photoshoot helps build the story of your child's life. A pro can give you beautiful photos to share now, and great photos to look back on in the future.

Portrait Style

For a timeless look that always works, go for a classic look. These photos give you a chance to turn your best smile on the camera. You can work with your photographer to pick out the best pose for the entire family.

It's important that you feel comfortable and look natural! This includes standing or seating arrangements. You can't go wrong with a classic pose in your family portraits.


From creative lighting to unusual composition, artistic photography gives you special family portraits. Each photo will look like a work of art. You can go with funny pictures or something more serious.

Post-shot editing can also help make your photos magical. Or pick black and white for a more dramatic look.

With artistic photos, you can work with your photographer for a unique look. It will let your family's personality shine!


If posed photography isn't for you, capture the spirit of life with some candids! A pro can make even spur of the moment enjoyment look ready to hang on your wall. Candids are great either in the studio or on location.

You won't have to worry about blurry, out of focus shots that only manage to capture some of your family. You'll be too busy having fun with them for your portraits!


Make sure to give yourself enough time to take your photos so everyone looks happy and relaxed. Plan for at least a few hours for a few poses, and increase the time for larger groups or for extra shots. You'll also want to give yourself some extra time if you have young kids. This way, you can put your photo shoot on pause for snack breaks or stretches!

It shouldn't take more than a few hours to get great photos you're happy with. And if you hope to take outdoor photos, remember to book a rain date with your pro!


For the best shots of your family, you'll want a photographer who knows what they're doing. They can use their experience to coax a smile out of even the most reluctant family member!

Experience will give them the patience to keep up with your family and make you all look great. Beyond skills behind the camera, they can also help edit your photos to perfection.

Take a look through their portfolio to get a glimpse into what a photographer is capable of. If you like their style, that's the pro for you! You may even see reviews from clients sharing how great the photographer did with their family photos!


Before you have your photo session, take a look through photos to discover a look you like. Outdoor shots add colour and life to your shots. You can go to a park, stay around your home, or even travel to a lake for a picturesque set of photos. Your photographer can recommend good spaces to make the most of an outdoor shoot.

You can also choose to have your photo shoot in a studio. Your photographer can give you perfect lighting and the right background. Your family is sure to shine in these photos.


Family portraits are valuable keepsakes. Taking the time to arrange for a pro will guarantee you get shots you'll love now and treasure forever.

No matter whether your family is large or small, or if you want formal or casual photos, a pro is the way to go. You'll get the best photos from a pro who knows how to give you great photos.

I got married in September and I hate getting my photo taken! However from first meeting John he made me feel at ease. He showed me some of his previous work and let me decide how my days photography would go. I had prompt replies everytime I made contact about arrangements. On the day John showed up right on time to photograph myself and my mother and bridesmaid getting ready, also the guests arriving. Excellent pictures during the ceremony and after without being to obvious which meant I felt relaxed. I was so pleased when I received my album, perfect images and the whole package was more than reasonably priced. I couldn't fault this photographer and would recommend him to everyone (infact I have) , not just for weddings but for any occasion. 10/10

I have just hired them because they were highly professional, prompt and helpful. The work is not started yet but I am sure it will be just what’s required as a website revamp.
