How long should a family photo session be?

I’m sure this answer will differ depending on which photographer you ask, but I’ll tell you how long it will take me personally to shoot a family photo session. Depending on the number of participants, this can take between 1 and 1.5 hours. I hope this post was able to help you decide whether a mini photo shoot is best for your family versus a full length family photo session. A mini session usually costs a lot less than a full session, so this can be tempting for a family to opt to book a mini session instead of a full-length session for their family.
