  • Do some research online to get prices. And maybe call a local photographer, making a general inquiry, and ask what they would charge. You could just charge by the hour also. Figure you would be committed for 2 hours, maybe, traveling and taking pics and then figure what you want to make per hour.

  • Do you take photos for others excluding your family? This will be a great place to start. You may also want to get back the cost for the materials you need to take her photo. Let us know how it goes.
