My family has used the professional photography services of Don Shepard for several years now. Don has a unique ability to create a relaxed atmosphere which always results in phenomenal images and priceless memories. We have used Don for family photos, senior portraits, and even special image requests for home decoration. If you have the opportunity to book Don for your special event you will not be disappointed.

We really enjoyed working with Heidi for our family photos. They turned out better than I expected. She was great with follow up and answering all of my questions before hand in a very timely manner. During the photos she was extremely helpful and patient as we have a 18 month baby who did not want his photos taken. Overall experience was incredible and look forward to future photos with Heidi.

They are a class act. They were willing to work with us when things changed. They would be great photographers to do your outdoor pics if you have a wonderful outdoor venue.

Alberto did such a great job on our fall family pictures! I have three kids (11, 5 & 2) and the youngest is quite the handful. Alberto and his wife were able to get her to cooperate long enough for plenty of great shots, and a few candid ones of her ornery-ness in action :) I especially love the outdoorsy feel of backgrounds he captured with her artistic eye. I would definitely use Lopez photography again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a good quality photographer!

My husband and I started working with Tammy a little over a year ago to do our engagement photos. My husband and I aren't really into PDA which is basically what an engagement session is (so we are not the easiest to photograph) Tammy was so great at understanding this and making us feel really comfortable and just let us interact how we felt comfortable and our pictures turned out AMAZING!! Tammy continued to be amazing and patient on my wedding day. I had a pretty rowdy group and she kept them under control and had all the shots organized before hand to try and get through all the pictures I wanted in a timely matter which was important to me as to not keep my guests waiting to long to start the reception. The results are PHENOMENAL and I am so in LOVE with all of my wedding photos!! Last but not least Tammy just did our newborn session to welcome our baby girl. This was possibly the biggest challenge because in true baby form she did not want to sleep. Tammy again was so patient and started with shots that would be easier to get with an awake baby as to not waste any of our time and then even worked with my awake squirming baby to get some great photos of her awake. FINALLY during the final hour she fell asleep. Tammy was amazing at working quickly and efficiently to ensure that we would have a good variety of photos to chose from. Again the results take my breath away. I truly can not say enough about this wonderful lady and I am happy to say that we have found our family photographer for years to come!!

We hired Jen to take our fall photos after looking at quite a few other photographers work. And I'm so glad we went with her! She is an AMAZING photographer! Our kids loved getting our pictures done! And we all felt very comfortable. We had an awesome time and they turned out absolutely fabulous! We will definitely be having Jen take our future photos!

Kaitlyn did an amazing job with our son, Cole's senior pictures. We went to multiple locations and had great shots. She was able to get his true smile. We also had Kaitlyn do our family pictures in the fall that were beautiful! Excellent photographer!

From the time I first made contact with Tyler he was both friendly and professional. My entire family had a great experience throughout the photo shoot and I am very happy with the edited photos he produced. I highly recommend Tyler to anyone looking for a photographer.

We chose Barry to shoot our daughter's senior portraits this fall and we couldn't have chosen better. This man knew how to listen to her instead of running through some generic routine. He must have spent hours of research to get her specialized theme correct! I don't imagine every professional would have scoured 1950s culture websites to pull this off as he did. We are especially impressed by the subtle editing it took to authenticate what would have intimidated other photographers. Our family is lucky to have found him, as we have another uniquely-minded daughter graduating soon. Thanks Barry!

    I've been working with Sunny Sixteen Studios since the spring of 2011 and have not only received amazing photographers but I've also enjoyed the creative process and look forward to each photography session. A relaxed atmosphere and professional service makes it easy to relax and enjoy what normally can be a very stressful awkward process. I would recommend Sunny Sixteen Studios to anyone who is interested in not only great photographs but an experience that makes you enjoy getting your picture taken.

    Honestly our entire experience was absolutely wonderful. Pat is an amazing photographer that has a great eye for details and just knows what will work and what will not. He was very professional but friendly. Makes you feel comfortable like you've been friends for a long time. My daughter won a contest for a free sitting fee. And I have to say that if she had not won, we would still have used Beyond Perception Photography for her senior photos. His pictures are unique to the individual and he has a way of capturing nature and natural beauty at its best!!

      To me there is nothing more wonderful than capturing an authentic moment--whether it's a genuine smile on your kid's face or a glance between friends or family...those are the moments I live to capture.

      About

      I pursue personality-centered photographs, steering away from cookie-cutter poses and facades. Specializing in on-location imaging allows me to run with creativity and capture something candid.

Please contact me if you are looking for someone that can keep your design and photography needs within your budget.

        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.
