    I was very happy with Lindsey for my engagement photos and wedding photos. She was very professional. She had her own ideas and also listened to my ideas. I loved that she had two photographers at my wedding. It was so cool to see the different views!!! The pictures turned out great! And so many shots!! I had a very hard time choosing favorites!! I am looking forward to calling her for my maternity session!! Highly recommend!

    Had the good fortune to have Third Charm Photography available for youngest step-daughter's senior photos and for my wedding, both in 2014. Could not have asked for better. Photographs were creative and fun and still make me smile and remind me what a beautiful day that was with our friends and family. The photographers were a delight to have around, funny and charming. Thank you, Third Charm. Polly.

      About

      As a contemporary photographer, my inspiration and ideas are constantly coming from all aspects of life. When shooting portraiture, I believe my friendly and approachable personality allows me to truly portray and illustrate the subject for who they really are through a photograph, capturing them at their best.

      About

      Please always email first. I work another job, so this is the easiest way to contact me. I offer several mini-theme sessions a year. Book now for next year's senior pictures. I offer great locations for family and kid pictures! I also offer a purchase of CD, with a sitting fee, or I do have a print list. I am open all year for indoor or outdoor photos!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      Do you tip a photographer for family photos?

      Tipping a photographer for family portraits is not standard etiquette. A great way to recognize a family photographer who goes above and beyond is to write them a glowing review. You probably found your photographer by reading online reviews, so paying it forward by letting everyone know how much you appreciate their work is a great gift. Write your review after they have delivered the final edited photos on time and you’ve confirmed that you’re happy with the terrific portraits they took.

      What should you wear for a family photo?

      A family photographer captures your family in a series of professionally edited portraits. You can be goofy, you can be formal, you can be exactly how you want to be. To that end, you can wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident — feeling good translates to looking good in photos. However, top family photographers do have some style suggestions that will make your family photos more visually cohesive:

      • Ask the photographer for color suggestions if you’re doing an outdoor photo shoot. Location and time of day can affect which shades will fade in the sunlight and what will stand out in a good way.
      • Stay away from a mix of stripes or plaids on multiple people — the effect is too busy.
      • Steer clear of tiny patterns, which blend together too much.
      • Avoid wearing matching outfits.
      • Do wear outfits that are complementary in color.
      • Choose color over black-and-white outfits.
      • Do choose a theme, such as pastels, fall colors or summer colors.
      • Opt for tonally similar colors.  
      • Go easy on makeup for outdoor photo shoots.

      How much do photographers charge for family portraits?

      Family portraits are a great way to mark the passage of time, create lifelong keepsakes and have gorgeous-looking photos for your annual holiday card. The national average cost for hiring family photographers ranges from $150 to $200. Pricing can range higher depending on where you live, length of the photo shoot, the number of edited photos you request, and the background and reputation of your family photographer. Before hiring, make sure you understand their fees up front. Ask how many finished images are included in the quoted price and whether you will receive all the photos taken (not just edited photos). Ask whether you’ll be able to download digital photos or if you’ll have to print them or purchase digital copies through the photographer. Here are some average examples of family photographer pricing:

      • $175 for a one-hour studio session in Kansas.
      • $200 for a one-hour studio or outdoor session in Georgia. Includes two outfit changes, access to an online gallery, and about 200 high-resolution, edited digital photo files on a DVD, with permission to print.
      • $400 for a one-hour outdoor session in Southern California. Includes 25-30 fully edited photos accessible online or via CD/DVD.
      • $425 or more for a one-hour outdoor or in-home session in Illinois. Includes more than 50 professionally edited images, online access and print release.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
