My immediate family (parents siblings) I do for free. Everyone else pays the standard rate. I don't really like taking photographs that much if I'm completely honest unless I'm either working or on holiday/travelling. So as this would be work I'd want to be paid.

I find it sad that family does not go out of their way to help out each other. If you can't turn to family for help...who can you turn to.

Not everyone has the same family dynamic.

For my family on both mom's and dad's side, I have and will continue to shoot for free (or charge just to cover expenses), because they would do the same for me. For my family on my wife's mom's side, I would shoot for free. For the family on my wife's dad's side, they can go jump in a lake.

I would HIGHLY advise to keep family and business separate. Usually nothing good ever comes out of working for family paid or free. I learned the hard way and always draw the line now and say I can recommend someone.

I think it doesn't matter if you don't like her. This is your photography business so treat her like you would treat anyone else. Charge her for your photography. :)
