Year End Blowout!!!! | Michigan Newborn and Child Photographer

As we all know, the year's end is coming near, and everyone seems to be celebrating with a sale. Well, we are no different. I have decided to step out of my comfort zone, and offer something that I have NEVER offered before. In light of the holiday, and the impending new year I came up with a sale that is sure to be a fav.
From now through 11:59pm on December 31st, if you schedule and pay for a session with me, you will receive a special portrait package* that has been put together just for this sale. This package includes,

2 - 8x10
5 - 5x7
4 - wallets

(A $285 VALUE)

On top of the package deal, I have one more, unprecedented, offer. If you purchase one of our new Standout Image Clusters, you will receive the digital file for every image used in your cluster, FREE, with a print release which will allow you to print those files anywhere you would like (with suggestions on better printing labs that are available to you), in any quantity, in any size 8x10 and smaller.

These deals are good for any session that is booked and payed for before 11:59pm, on December 31st, 2010. Although the actual session can take place at any time from now through June of 2011. Normal session fees apply. Find more info on pricing and products here.

I hope that everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving, and that your Holidays are fabulous.
Merry Christmas from Carri Beth Photography. :)

Chelsea H. | Grand Blanc Senior Photographer

This past weekend I was able to get out and enjoy a nice warm fall day, outside, with the stunning Chelsea Haas. We began our day at 10:00 am, in 65 degree weather. By the time we were done, it was a beautiful 74 degrees, and we were more than ready for lunch. Hunger aside, Chelsea rocked it out, like America's next top model. She was a dream to shoot. She caught the eye of a few curious spectators, one of which was a sweet little orange cat that we named Mr Biggles, (short for Mr. Bigglesworth). I had a lot of fun shooting this session, and just spending time with Chelsea and her bff, who just happens to be my youngest sis. All in all, it was a great day. I can't wait to show you the rest Chels.

Head over to my Facebook Fanpage to see a few more shots of Miss Chelsea. And while you're there, become a fan, if you're not already. :)

There's a new SMUG in town!

What's a SMUG you ask. As it is described on the smug site,

"A SMUG is a place where you can learn, teach and meet up with other photographers who share your passion. It's also how we can tell you what's happening in our world and discover what's happening in yours. SMUGs are a great way to connect with other photographers and add a few weapons to your creative arsenal."

Last night we kicked off or first official meeting as the Detroit SmugMug User Group. There are smug groups all over the country, and now there is one right in our backyard. I knew, from the time that we had our planning meeting back in june, that this was going to be an awesome group, and our meeting last night did not disappoint. There were many people there that are passionate about all different forms of photography. Some professionals, some just interested in photography as a hobby. I saw some familiar faces from the june meeting, but I was even more excited to see new faces.

Most of all, last night, I was REALLY excited to meet our speaker of the night, Dawn McCarthy. Dawn is an extremely talented wedding photographer from Jacksonville, Florida, and the leader of the Jacksonville SmugMug User Group. I have known Dawn for a long time now, but have never met her in person. Let me tell you, she lived up to every expectation I had for her. She is even more beautiful than her photographs. I saw a mutual friend of ours say that she is cute as a bug's ear, and it's so true. From her country girl accent, to the rhinestone studded pockets on the back of her jeans and her sassy leopard print pumps. Appearances aside, Dawn is a great speaker. She is eloquent, honest, knowledgeable, and best of all, she is super sweet, but not afraid to show a little sass. It was also nice to know that I am not the only grown woman in the world who uses the word "crap" on a regular basis. Lol. Although she is a wedding photographer, and used many wedding analogies in her presentation, her points were relatable to many other forms of photography, or any small business for that matter. Dawn's presentation was engaging and inspiring, and I cannot think of any better way to kick things off for our group.

Dawn has definitely raised the bar for any future speaker that the Detroit SmugMug User Group will ever have. Luckily, our group has a great leader, Jerry Roek, and other great organizers that are passionate about both photography and their relationships with SmugMug. I cannot wait to learn and grow through this group, and get to know everyone better, but most of all, I can't wait to watch as our group grows into something that Detroit and Michigan can be proud of. There are great things ahead, I know it, and I for one am really excited about it. :)

If you are at all interested in photography, and want to learn and meet people who share your passion, please feel free to head over to the meetup site and join the group.

Meet Krystal. She is the younger sister of a former subject of mine, Kyle. We met up at a beautiful park, and though it was steamy hot that day, Krystal kept her cool, and we had a great shoot.

Tiny Mr. A. | Davisburg, Newborn Photographer

Meet Mr. A. He is absolutely too cute for words. I had so much fun shooting him.....and of course, I got a little snuggle in there too. He looked so sweet hugging that little stuffed bunny and wearing the matching slippers, which were a special gift from one of his favorite uncles. He is just a natural beauty, and didn't have to put any effort into his first modeling gig. He even gave us a huge smile. He's already "cheesing" for the camera. Lol. I'm so glad that I got to spend the afternoon with this little cutie, and I cannot wait to see him again.

Mackenzie's turning ONE!!!! | Ortonville, Baby Photographer

This past week I was able to enjoy some time with my sister and my little niece, Mackenzie, when they flew in to visit from California. Mackenzie has grown so much since the last time I saw her in January. She's turning one at the end of this month, and is on the verge of walking. Being that she lives so far away, I count myself extra lucky to be able to watch her as she clumsily attempts to take her first steps. Being a long-distance Aunty (and sister) is so hard. I miss them so much while they are away, and only wish that they could move back home. In the meantime, I try to enjoy them as much as possible while they are here, and I was ecstatic to find out that Mackenzie didn't cry every time she saw me this time. Lol. Actually, she has a very happy disposition, and is just too funny to watch. In anticipation of 'Kenzie's first birthday, we decided to do a photo session, while taking advantage of this beautiful weather. I wish I could be there for her very first birthday party, and I hope she knows that, even though I am not there, I love her very much.....and her momma too. :)

Little Mr. M. and Miss S.

These two little cuties are the lucky winners of my spring contest. We managed to dodge the rain the morning of their shoot, although little Miss S. had A LOT of fun with the tinkerbell umbrella that I brought to protect her from the potential rain. Lol. They are both so adorable, and Miss S. was looking especially cute in the dress that she won from the contest. The dress and headband were generously donated by Pick Your Pocket Studio. They create some of the cutest apparel and accessories around. You can check out their facebook fanpage here.
We had a great morning, and even got a bit of exercise while hiking through the park. So, all in all it was a productive day, and we managed to get some super cute images during all of our fun.
Thank you so much to Pick Your Pocket Studio for the beautiful dress and matching headband. :)

A Good Friend, and a Beautiful Family | Swartz Creek, Family and Children Photographer

My friend, Lisa, has been one of my biggest supporters for a long time. Her son Aiden was one of my very first clients, and it has been so fun to watch him grow. It was also great to watch their family grow, with the arrival of their adorable baby girl, Isabel, last summer. Of course I was excited to snag a chance to go out and photograph these sweet little "babies." They are so different, but both so amusing in their own ways. I had so much fun with them, and can't wait to watch Isabel smash her chubby little hands into her first birthday cake soon. Lisa, thank you so much for being so loyal and supportive. I am glad that you have chosen me to help document the lives of your munchkins.
I'd also like to thank their family friend that, so kindly, allowed us to shoot in her beautifully landscaped yard, and custom built playhouse. It was a perfect location for this session. Thank you so much. :)

Meet Sweet Baby Saige | Waterford, Newborn Photographer

This is Saige. She made an earlier appearance than anyone had anticipated, but she is healthy and beautiful, and oh so happy. You can see her light up as soon as she hears Daddy call her by her very first nickname, "Sweety". She is absolutely perfect, from her fuzzy little head, to teeny little toes. I hope you enjoy your preview. Many more to come. :)

Beautiful Miss N. | Ortonville, Newborn Photographer

This is the gorgeous Miss N. She was, all of, 5 days old she came to me for her first photo session. She was such a little sweetheart, and slept like a champ. I am absolutely in love with all of that hair, and only wish that I was lucky enough to have her beautiful skin tone. She was a dream to photograph. I am glad that I had the opportunity to spend a morning with her.

Little Miss S.

Meet the adorable Miss S. She is so sweet, and is just DYING to be all grown up. You can just see it in her eyes as she watches her big sister run and play. If only her little legs were steady enough to stand on, I know she would be running right behind her. She didn't want anything to do with laying down, or even sitting up. She just loves to stand, and she LOVES her Daddy, so it only made sense to have Daddy give her a hand, and help her stand up big and tall. She got tired of us pretty quickly, but we got some great shots. We'll just call this one "To be continued" for now. I know that there will be more to come of little Miss S., and even her beautiful big sis, in the future.

Check it out and enter to win some great prizes.
