A professional that would charge you would be anywhere from 300-500.  Does she expect to be paid, or does she want to have fun and just take some pictures.  It soudnsl iek she just wants to take pictures.  I would offer to take them (your friend and her sister) out to dinner as a little thank you.

when I was shooting, i charged $150 for an hour session. i would probably still charge that. I would say $100 is good amount for her time and experience level.

@MissCalifornia:  Reallyl depends on what you want and how long the shoot will be.  Do you want prints or just retouched images on CD?

Since she is not a pro, I would say a reasonable price would be a 2 hour shoot, and a CD of ~50 retouched images for around $200.  She may be willing to do it for less for the experience and portfolio images.  Why don’t you ask her what her expected compensation is?
