Hey Everyone, I hope this is the right spot for this. I used to have an account on these forums and frequent daily, but stopped for some reason years ago, so I'm a little out of practice on using this place as a tool/guide. Anywho, I'm about to book my first paid shoot with a friend of my sisters. A young woman with a husband and 3 children from the Central MA area, looking for some autumn family shots. I've seen previous photos she's had taken and I'm fairly comfortable that I can meet or exceed their quality. However I've never charged for my work, and have never worked with children. I've taken couples photos, senior student photos, engagement, wedding, travel, architecture, and sure I've snapped a few of my young nieces and nephews and stuff at family gatherings, but I've never had to direct or pose young children (between 6 and 10 I believe). I've been taking a look at a lot of "professional family fall photos" online, and I've got a good feel for the norms (not that I wan't to be normal, but just getting a read on the waters), just nervous about this double first time experience. So I guess my question is two fold: First, what are some good guidelines for pricing? How heavily should I factor in that she is my first paying client? What about that she is a family friend? Second, are there any serious dos and don'ts for family photos? What about working with young children? Thanks in advance for any input.
