Soak up the time with your loved ones and capture the joy of being together with beautiful, lasting photography.

charleston + myrtle beach FAMILY photographer

Don’t worry about looking awkward or trying to keep your little ones entertained through a lengthy photoshoot! My family portrait sessions are designed to start with the whole family and work down to smaller, more intimate shots before wrapping up with a few moments to capture candid and natural images of your family interacting and enjoying each other’s company.

A guided photography experience

Good family photography is all about gathering the people you love and capturing the relationships that matter most. I’m all about making sure you feel comfortable and relaxed in both small and large group settings (yes, no matter how big your extended family is!). With so many people included in a family photoshoot, it can be overwhelming to think about trying to coordinate the event and ensure you get all the images you want without looking stuffy or stressed. That’s what I’m here for!

It’s not always easy to get the whole family for an event, but it’s always worth it.

Michelle

“She was prompt on the day of the photo session and her bubbly and friendly personality and attitude immediately put us all at ease. She worked some kind of magic with my 3-year-old niece who didn’t seem to want to smile much but still managed to capture gorgeous images of her grinning. The lighting was beautiful at the location that she recommended to us and we received our gallery in the less than 2 weeks time that was initially quoted to her. Simply put, Hannah is a gem, so talented, and worth every penny. We can’t wait to book our next session with Hannah!”

“I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things!”

Jennifer

“She did a great job with family members of all ages, including two infants! We are very pleased with the gorgeous photos, and her communication before, during, and after the shoot was superb! I highly recommend Hannah!”

“Our extended family photos with Hannah were so much fun!”

I will occasionally offer mini-sessions around the holidays or for special times of the year (ie. Mother's Day). I typically announce mini sessions on Facebook and Instagram so follow along to know when the next mini-session will be!

Do you offer mini-sessions?

I am happy to work with families of every size but additional fees may apply to groups of over 5 people (+$100/ 5 people). If you would like to have more than 10 people in your session, please let me know on your booking form or send me an email at hannah@hannahruthphotography.com .

Is there a limit to the number of people we can include?

Yes! You can receive your complete digital gallery for only $200 more.

Can I upgrade my package to include more images?

The standard package includes 50 high-resolution images and a print release. This means the images you download will not have my logo or a watermark. When you receive your proofing gallery, my watermarked logo will be on them until you select the images you would like to keep. After you review your gallery and purchase, the watermark will be removed.

Will the photos have your logo on them?

Your session will begin with group shots and then we'll move on to photos with all the kids (before we lose their attention). After that, we’ll focus on individual family photos including kids, siblings, and couples before wrapping up with the fun, candid photos. The candid photos include things like the kids running around and parents interacting with each other and their children—we’ll have fun, I promise!

We have a large family. How does this work?

Finished images are ready for you to view and download 2 weeks after your session. Your photos will be delivered through your private, online gallery and you can share all images with family and friends.

When will I receive my images?

Frequently Asked Questions

Sessions can take place at sunrise or an hour before sunset. This timing means there will likely be fewer people on the beach, cooler weather, and beautiful light! However, if those times don’t work with your schedule, I can always arrange for an 8am or 9am session at Myrtle Beach State Park, where the pier will provide us with enough shade to capture amazing photos.

What time of day will our session take place?
