Schedule your family session

Myrtle Beach is a fun destination for family vacations. During summer season our calendar for beach portraits fills up pretty fast so it is never too early to book your family photography session. The first step would be to get in touch with us by filling out our contact form and check for availability. If we have any available dates the booking is done very simple.


What to wear for a family session

Clothing: Clothing is a key element for beautiful, timeless family portraits. When planning your family photo session think about the location. Coordinate and compliment colors but don’t match. Try to avoid busy patterns or dark colors. Neutral, cream and soft pastel colors look beautiful together.

Shoes: Shoes matter! Please do not wear sneakers. For beach photo sessions Bare feet are always preferred.

Accessories: Hats, scarves, flowers in the hair for girls can make the images look complete.

Our Favourite Locations

Most of our beach family sessions take place at Myrtle Beach State Park or Huntington Beach State Park where beaches and natural backdrops are perfect for your family portraits. Depending on where in Myrtle Beach you are staying, we will recommend you more beautiful photo locations to choose from. We also love exploring new locations to photograph family portrait sessions. The best time for outdoor photography is two hours before sunset and after sunrise. The reason for that is that the natural light during golden hour is soft and even. We always recommend if possible having your family portraits done during that period of the day.

Family Portraits Tips

Time: Be sure to leave plenty of time to get ready. We would recommend you not to schedule your photo session around your child’s nap or bedtime and make sure to give everyone a healthy snack before the photo shoot.

Safety: Please leave all of your valuables (phones, wallets etc.) at home or in your locked vehicle.

Inclement Weather

Myrtle Beach weather in the summertime is pretty bipolar and it can change during the day pretty fast. It is typical for us to schedule more than one session dates. A primary date and a rain date. Coordinating schedules could be tough and we always recommend to book your session during the first days of your vacation.

We understand that getting ready for your family session takes time and it is the worst to get to the scheduled location only to have it rain. We always keep an eye on the weather and do what works best for you, but if the weather looks like it will be bad we will get in touch with you a few hours in advance to reschedule your family session.

What is the good time for a family session?

The best time for outdoor photography is two hours before sunset and after sunrise. The reason for that is that the natural light during golden hour is soft and even. We always recommend and schedule if possible family portrait sessions during what we believe it will be the best light of the day. It is really important to be on time.

Displaying your family portraits

We believe that empty walls don’t tell your story and personal touches are what makes a house a home, and nothing does quite as well as printed and displayed family portraits. Family photographers at Vertu Studios offer high quality artwork and family heirloom products that will add comfort to your home.
