Grand Canyon Family Photos

Grand Canyon Family Photos – Photography by Terri

I’ve been shooting family photos at Grand Canyon for a long time and have a lot of experience working with families and kids. I worked in a portrait studio for children for 7 years and now I’ve ditched the lighting and shoot all natural. Being a natural light photographer, the canyon and the photos are very dependent on shooting at sunrise or sunset. The last hour of the day, or the first offer a softer light among other lighting conditions that I prefer. Although most of my photos are shot at those times of day at Grand Canyon there are many other factors that influence their appearance and we never really have the same lighting situation twice.

I can offer family portraits on any given calendar date at these times, based on the sun (see below) and for a set price of $250. My price includes a basic edit and included in my price is the time it takes to actually take the photos, the post production/ processing of the photos (usually this takes me about the same amount of time as it takes to physically take the photos). the rights to the photos and high resolution digital images that you can have printed anywhere you like, at a lower costs than photographers usually charge for printed packages. I upload the finished images within one week from the time they are taken, They get uploaded to a site you can download from.

Theoretically, each calendar day I am available for 2 sessions, one at sunrise and one at sunset. These are the approximate available times for portrait sessions at Grand Canyon. These would vary come slightly when setting an appointment for a photo session.
