With Carri Beth Photography, you have have the opportunity to choose the type of session that best fits your wants and needs. All sessions are all inclusive, meaning there are no hidden costs or monetary obligations beyond the session fee, unless YOU choose to add to it.On the day of your session, we WILL enjoy our time together....really....it's one of my rules. Lol. I like to work in a laid back, low stress environment, in which we don't fret if your child isn't looking at the camera. We will go with the flow, get creative, tricky, and yes, I will sometimes resort to straight up bribery to get what we want from your little angel(s). We will laugh, and chat, all while capturing sly smiles, belly laughs, sweet nuzzles, and the occasional heart-melting pout. This session is meant to leave you excited about the images we captured and the memories we made in the process.
I have recently decided to include proofs with each session. This means you will receive a low res copy of each image from your gallery, with basic edits applied, and watermarked, so you will have them forever, to look back on and share as you'd like. This decision was not easy to make, since this can very easily lead to abuse and misuse of my images, and also limits my ability to up-sell anything, but I am putting trust in my clients to respect my work, and honestly, I've never been a great sales person, and I don't like pushing people to buy things that they don't necessarily want. At the same time, I am a mother, and I know how it feels to know that someone has photos of my babies that I do not have. It gives me a knot in my belly to think that someone has memories of my kiddos that I cannot share. I never want to be that person hoarding memories from my clients. You deserve to be able to look at your images whenever you want to. I hope that this helps fulfill that need. :)
The Digital Archive Session: NEW!!!! $500..............The ALL NEW Digital Archive Session includes low resolution files of ALL of the images from your proofing gallery with basic editing applied and watermarked, for you to remember forever and share online. This session also includes 10 digital images, of your choice, from your gallery, fully retouched with printing rights up to size 8x10. That means that you can print those ten images anywhere you'd like, in any quantity that you wish, ANYTIME. And you are not just locked down to printing paper prints. This opens up the possibility of using your beautiful custom portraits to make creative and fun photo gifts. You want to make Dad a coffee mug with your children's "mugs" scrolled across it? MAKE IT! Does mom want a fabulous purse adorned with photos to showcase her beautiful family? BUY IT! Do you want to show your photos to the world? SHARE THEM! There are so many creative possibilities when you have the flexibility of having the printing rights to your photos. Imagine Mom's face, on Mother's Day, when she sees the beautiful necklace that you had made with her sweet baby's face etched into it. You're sure to bring a tear to her eye. Your digital images will be delivered to you on a Custom USB drive, and packaged in a beautiful 5x7 Custom Photo Presentation Box, perfect for storing any loose prints that you may have made from your images.
The Classic Heirloom Session: $500.............. The Classic Heirloom Session is named so because it includes a $350 print credit to buy heirloom quality prints, produced at a professional lab with the best inks, on archival paper meant to last through generations. This session is for the person who wants to be sure that their photos will be hanging on their walls, or adorning their lovely bookshelves and desktops, and not just sitting on a hard drive waiting to be printed. This is the perfect session for the natural procrastinator. Lol. I call it "No Fuss Photos" because you know that I will take care of the whole process of ordering and delivering your products, and you won't have to lift a finger. With the heirloom session, you will always receive products that are of the highest quality, beautiful, bright, and worthy of showcasing. It is always exciting to receive your package of goodies when your order comes in, opening the box(es) and seeing your beautiful baby's sweet face, immortalized on different mediums for all to see. No matter how old your baby might be, it's like Christmas, every time. I have also recently decided to include a download of low resolution files of ALL of the images from your proofing gallery with basic editing applied and watermarked. This allows you to keep each image to remember forever, and to share online.
The Nitty-Gritty: All sessions are done solely on-location, which means I come to you for your session. You may choose to use your home, or the home of a friend or family member. Or you may want to have the session take place at a local park or landmark. I work with natural and/or studio lighting. All sessions take place at a location which is chosen and mutually agreed upon during the pre-session consultation. I am currently serving Genesee, Lapeer and Oakland Counties. Each full session consists of at least one hour of shooting time. (Most are closer to two hours, and often longer for newborn sessions). Carri Beth Photography requires that a session fee be paid in full prior to the time of the photo shoot. Session fees cover the time and talent of your photographer during the session and through the basic editing process, and include either a print credit or digital images, depending on which type of session you choose.
Refund Policy: Because of the custom nature of the images and products produced and sold by Carri Beth Photography, all purchases are final, and no refunds will be made. If there is a problem with your order, which was not any fault of the photographer's, Carri will do her very best to rectify the situation, but is not obligated to exchange any products, or refund any payment put towards any products. My goal is to keep my clients happy, so if you have a question or request, please feel free to speak with me personally.
