Lyn is absolutely amazing! She came to us here in Greenville,SC. She chose an amazing location after I told her exactly what I wanted. Her prices are super cheap for amazing quality! I would never use another photographer again. It was blazing hot and she was extremely patient making sure she got every shot and that they were perfect. I've used a lot of photographers in the past and she outdid them all by a long shot and I couldn't be happier with our amazing photos!

I cannot say enough good things about Scott Clinton and the photo shoot we did with him. I worked for a national ad agency for many years prior to coming to BonWorth and we used photographers from all over the world--Scott was better, more creative, easier to work with and generally the best I have ever had the pleasure to work with. We plan on using him exclusively from this point forward. Lynne Strickland, BonWorth Marketing

I was in a pinch (timewise) to have my professional headshot completed for a presentation the same week. Cody was immediately responsive to my request (less than 5 minutes) and was present at my office the very next business day before noon. We took a variety of shots and chose various backdrops that were lit in different ways. Cody selected the best shots and sent them via Dropbox the next day. So while there are many local photographers in the greater Charlotte, NC area I would recommend Cody for any of your project needs based on his professionalism and availability and quality work.

The girls and I had a great time while working on my photoshoot. Lindsey and Jamie are both laid back, and pleasant to work with. Lindsey had some ideas beforehand, so we didn't go blindly into the shoot- everything worked out smoothly, and it didn't take long at all (compared to other shoots that I've done)! Excellent photographers with top notch work!

Working with Ashlee was fantastic. We were having a hard time finding a reasonably priced photographer who was still willing to put in the time and effort that we really wanted. Not only was she very professional but the photos were stunning! The online gallery she provided was great because we could very easily text/email it to all of our prints. I highly reccomend!

Heather is an amazing photographer! She gets great angles and shots and can get the kids that "hate pics" to look and smile! Her quality is far superior to other area photographers and her personality and patience are unmatched! She's amazing and will be our family photographer forever!

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.

    Hi-- My wife and I have a 9 month old girl - we'd love to do some sort of a family session-- just fun, something not too "posed" just nice family stuff -- we really haven't done anything like it and we'd love to take some pictures that we could use for holiday cards etc... I know it's pretty last minute so we're just searching around to see if you or any photographers you know might be available to do a shoot anytime this Friday, 12/5, Saturday 12/6 or Sunday 12/7? My wife and I very rarely ever get a day off together, and we just found out that we do both have off from Friday-Sunday, so we were looking to do a photo shoot with the baby. We're going to be up in Charlotte visiting my parents (we live in Charleston). Any point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
