When it comes to family and newborn photography, one of the first and most important things to consider is how much you’re going to spend. There are a lot of factors behind a photographer’s pricing, and I wanted to highlight some key factors in what goes into it!
I want you to leave this post knowing:
So, unfortunately there isn’t one easy average of photography services, as you probably guessed! There are tons of factors that go into the pricing of photography packages. Establishing what you’re looking for before you begin comparing photographers in your area is a great place to start. Regardless, I would advise that you’re prepared to spend anywhere from $250-$2500.
As I said, TONS of factors go into why photographers set their prices. Let’s get into a deeper breakdown of those factors, so you can understand what you’re paying for!
How long have they been in business? What is their portfolio like? Photographers range from: Beginner, Amateur, Mid-Tier Professional, and Luxury.
Mid-Tier Professional: $600-$1200
Luxury Photographer: $1300+
Do they have a studio? Is their work outside? Do they offer in-home sessions? All of these things add to a higher price for packages. Higher rents for a studio, higher cost-of-living, and more demand are all key factors.
If you’re looking for your photographer to provide styling and wardrobe, hair and makeup, and finished custom prints or albums, luxury is the way to go! It’s the best way to ensure you’ll have a stress-free, easy experience with an absolute pro.
Luxury photographers offer packages that would ensure you’re working together from your maternity session all the way to that first-year milestone! Consider if you want to find a photographer you know you can work with as your children and family grows!
More experienced photographers have a style, they can tell your family’s story and capture little moments between you. You can find someone to just take some family photos, or you can find an artist who is going to freeze your irreplaceable family moments. It is so important to know what you’re looking for to know what you’re willing to spend.
If you’re seeking custom framed artwork or an heirloom photo album, you most likely won’t find that with an inexperienced photographer. The best part about working with an experienced, luxury photographer is being able to cherish that end result! Tangible memories of your little ones that the entire family can enjoy for generations is such a tremendous gift.
I have a whole other post dedicated to helping you find your perfect photographer! Finding someone who is going to provide all the services you need is so important. In that post, I talk about all the aspects to consider when you begin your search. How extensive the services are will absolutely affect the pricing of their services.
To summarize, there is not any specific average for newborn and family photography. For West Palm Beach photography, you can expect that you will be paying a little bit more to keep up with cost-of-living for the area. The absolute most important thing is to determine what you need the most in your photographer and the services they provide. As always, please reach out with questions or comments! Every family deserves to have an incredible photography experience.
