All in the Family | Burton MI, Baby & Family Photographer

I was contacted, months ago, to do custom portraits for an old friend of mine, Emily, who has moved away, gotten married, and started a family. This session was supposed to take place in August, but due to inclement weather, their flight was canceled, and I feared that we would not get a chance to do her session. Lucky for me, they were able to make a trip, all the way from Texas, to complete the session that we had been planning for so long.

As a special perk, I had the pleasure of photographing Emily's niece together with her daughter. They are close in age, and oh so cute. I got to meet her niece, Emma, first, and she is not only sweet, but she has got some rockin' dance moves. She can really shake it. I loved watching her bust a move to Tina Turner. The girl has good taste. :)

Soon after meeting Emma, Emily arrived and I got to meet her husband Mark and her sweet baby, Mae, for the first time. Mae is even cuter in person than she is in her photos........which is hard to do, since she is so adorable in her pictures. She has the funniest "toothy" grin. At least, it's as toothy as it gets when you just have one little tooth poking through. lol. Mae is also blessed with the most gorgeous blue eyes. They are simply mesmerizing.

Both girls did an awesome job, and I had so much fun working with them. And I was also glad that I got the opportunity to photograph Emily's family along with her mom and her brother and his family. I am thankful for Emily's mom, Laura, who welcomed me into her home, and allowed us to use it for the portrait session. I feel blessed and honored to have been chosen to capture three generations of a family that continues to grow. I would like to send well wishes to Emily's brother Jason, and his family, who are expecting a new baby very soon. I know that Emma will be a fantastic big sister.
Emily, I am flattered that you picked me to do your family portraits, and that you were willing to travel so far. I really had a lot of fun. It was so great to see you again, and to meet your family. :)

This rocking chair has sentimental value to Emily's mom, and I was happy to include something personal and special in their images.

U of M fans forever! :)

A New Hat!?!?!?!? | "Innovative" Ortonville Photographer Lol

Here at Carri Beth Photography, we're all about bringing things to the next level, and taking advantage of the versatility of different props. So today we figured out a whole new way to use our tutus. Check out the TUTU HAT! Isn't it FABULOUS?.............ok, so we're not REALLY going to put tutus on your child's head. This was just me and Maddie playing around today, and of course I HAD to snap a picture. I made this tutu last year and never got to use it. It can be used as a tutu skirt for older toddlers, or a small tutu dress for younger babes. If you have a lovely little girl that would look fantastically festive in this little tutu, and you would like to schedule a session, give me a call. (248) 678-3601. It's prime time to start shooting fall photos, and for getting those holiday portraits done and ready for your annual Christmas card, (which you can have custom designed by Carri Beth Photography). :)

Happy "Dress Up Like Steve Jobs Day!"

Happy "Dress Up Like Steve Jobs Day!" Who knew that such a day exists. Lol. Just thought I'd share some love for the brilliant Steve Jobs. Apple products make my business and private life MUCH easier..........except for when I have to pry my iPad out of the clutches of my kids. Haha. Anyway, I hope that everyone has had a GREAT back-to-school week. Have a fantastic weekend. :)

JR Customization Coupon Code | Happy Customer | Michigan Custom Photography

Hey guys, in case you haven't noticed, I have recently added an HTML website to the links on my splash page. It happens to be a SmugMug site, and I had it customized by JR Customization. I added the smugmug site because I needed something that was html based so that my site was viewable on devices that don't support Flash, like the iPad, or iPhone. They did a fantastic job, and really listened to my wants and needs for the site. I would highly recommend them to anyone, so I was thrilled when they gave me a coupon code to go along with my recommendation. Now I can tell you where to go to get a beautifully customized website, and I can save you money while I'm at it. Sounds like a win-win for you. The coupon code is for 10% off of any customization by JR Customization. They also do ShowIt sites, WordPress, Facebook Fanpages, Mobile Friendly sites, and Custom Graphics and Branding. I am thrilled with the job they did on my smug site. You can see what they did with mine by following this link. I hope that you will check them out. I'm sure that you will love them as much as I do. :)

Here's a screenshot of their design work on my homepage. :)

Andrew, Paige and Desiree | Fenton Senior Photographer

Thanks to an invitation from one of my photog friends, I had the pleasure of shooting three gorgeous young models the other day. Andrew, Paige and Desiree were all so fun to photograph, and just knew how to work the camera. I normally have a hard time narrowing down images to include in my blog posts, but with THREE models, it's nearly impossible to choose which photos to showcase without going overboard. Well, I'm afraid that I went a little overboard for this post because I just couldn't NOT show all of these. They were all fantastic. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to meet and shoot them all. :)

First, we have Paige. Paige is an exotic beauty. She is a natural in front of the camera, and her smoldering stare could stop traffic.

Next, we have Desiree. She is the girl with the bright smiling eyes and fun personality. I could tell, while I was shooting her, that she feels at home in front of the camera, and she's a pro at directing herself into different poses.

And last but not least, we have Andrew. Andrew is not only an incredibly handsome guy, but he is also an athlete, and a gentleman. He pulls off the serious tough guy look flawlessly, but isn't afraid to be goofy, or shoot you an extra charming smile.

Andrew and Paige are a couple, and they are so cute together. I couldn't help but take advantage of an opportunity to capture them together. :)

Adorable Oliver | Commerce Twp. Infant Photographer

This is Oliver. He is one bright-eyed baby boy, full of smiles and sweet baby noises. He is three months old, and growing fast. Watching him smile at his mama just melted my heart. You could just tell that he knew that everything was right in the world as long as his mommy was there. And little Oli is most definitely the light of his mommy's life. Mama is not the only one who Oliver looks up to though. It is obvious that he also adores his daddy, and there is no doubt that his daddy adores him right back. All together they make a BEAUTIFUL family. I am excited to watch Oliver grow throughout the rest of his first year of life, and beyond.

Thank you to Patricia Mansour of PatsHatsetc, for the adorable hat. :)

Lovely Little Charley | Ann Arbor Newborn Photographer

This is Charley. She is the cutest lil bug ever. She showed up wearing rock-n-roll jammies, and I knew from then on, we were dealing with a girl with some attitude. She did not hold back from telling us what she thought. On the contrary, she made it pretty loud and clear. ;) Though she started off with a bit of sass, she finished with FLARE. She was shedding like a snake, but I loved it because it is just another detail that we can capture to reflect on the quick changes she is already going through in her short life. She even lost her umbilical cord during the session. I'm telling you, this girl was growing up right before our eyes. From her fuzzy little head, to her tiny little toes, she is perfect in every way. Angie and John, you are so blessed to have such a sweet little girl in your lives. I am sorry it took me longer than I had anticipated to post your preview, but I hope it was worth the wait. I can't wait to finish the rest so that you can see them all. :)

I was going for an Alice in Wonderland/Mad Hatter theme with this one,
and I must say, she pulled it off beautifully. :)
