Girls Night Out

Click to continue reading “Girls Night Event 2010″





Hey everyone!  We’ve had some calls and questions about Girls Night Out.  I’m going to list a little Q & A.

1. Is there a limit to what I can purchase?  No, there’s no limit!!!!!  You can purchase as much as you wish for each gift certificate.  Only one certificate can be used per session.  You must have a scheduled session in your name to be able to use your Double Your Dollars.  So let’s say you want to come 4 times this year and get portraits.  You’d want to purchase four certificates for maybe $200 each doubled to $400 each so that you can use one certificate per session.   There is no limit to gift certificates purchased. 

2.  Can I use my double your dollars to pay my session fee?  Sorry Double Your Dollars cannot be used to pay your session fee.  Session fee is due upon booking. 

3.  When do my Double Your Dollars expire?  Expiration date is March 31, 2011

4.  Can I use Double Your Dollars anytime of year?  Almost anytime.  The studio is so booked and we run so many holiday specials during the months of October, November, and December that we can’t handle the Double Your Dollars during these three months.  But all other times of year it’s fair game! 

5.  Can I buy Double Your Dollars for my friend who can’t come Thursday night?  Absolutely!  Just make sure you have your friend’s name and telephone number handy. 

6.  What forms of payment do you accept for Double Your Dollars?  We take cash, check and all major credit cards.  Payment is due at time of purchase.

7.  What other cool things are you having Thursday night?  Tons of fun stuff!  Photo ring giveaway, Kids Club Raffle, lots of door prizes, many awesome vendors, not to mention the food and wine!

8. When is Girls Night Out?  This Thursday February 18 from 5-7 p.m. at the studio!

9. What should I wear?  Wear an animal print and receive a complimentary photo keychain from your next session.

10. Who can I call for more information?  Call us at the studio!  573.803.0565





It’s that time of year again!  Girls Night Out is going to be bigger and better than ever this year!  Bring all your girlfriends and enjoy the fabulous shopping, delicious food and drinks at Photography by Carrie, Bloom and Under Cover.  We are of course offering our Double Your Dollars once again this year.  You can purchase any amount, yes ANY AMOUNT and I’ll double it.  So if you purchase $500 I will double that to $1000!!!!  We’ll also be giving away a sterling silver photo ring as well as having a Kids Club raffle and a ton of cool door prizes.  There’s even going to be a big unveiling!  But I’ll let you find out about that when you come into the studio on Thursday February 18th from 5-7 p.m.  Its going to be a good night, I promise!






I had the pleasure of photographing Miss Ali Turner fasion model a few weeks ago. Ali has modeled all over the world and has modeled for agencies such as Ford NY, Ford Paris, Ford Chicago, Ford LA, Mega Models Miami, Chic Models Australia, and Centro Models St. Louis. She has been in countless magazine ads and has traveled to some very amazing places. This beautiful girl is much more than a model though, she’s intelligent, funny and super sweet. She also adores her horses–her horse Emma took the spotlight in some of these images. I can’t say enough about Ali except there are even more images of her to come (we did another shoot a couple days after this one). She has inspired me and taken my passion for photography to new heights. If you’re wondering who the handsome gentleman is with her, that’s her boyfriend, Jesse. He’s so in love with Ali-they’ve got a great energy together. Ali, I had such a fantastic time photographing you and Emma and Jesse. I can’t wait until our next session. Much love and peace, Carrie





This is Cassie, most of you know her as the amazing designer here at Photography by Carrie. Well, Cassie is also one of my models for a large project that I have coming up! I’ll post more about that venture next week but for now, here is Cassie working her wedding dress in some sweeeeet locations. Thanks Cassie for being the beautiful, talented, and sassy girl I know and love. You are fabulous!





This blog post is really just to say THANK YOU! Thank you to all my faithful and fun clients. You are the icing on my cake each day. I am so passionate about what I do and I think you all see that and that is the reason you all consistently vote Photography by Carrie as one of Cape County’s BEST photography studios. Really I just want to say I owe you-my clients so much of the credit. You come in here with the cutest, sweetest most adorable kids, families, and teens around and you make my job easy and enjoyable. I know I would not be here without many of you and please know that I am eternally grateful for your consistent business. I am so blessed to have the opportunity you give me each day to do what I love–capture your memories. Thank you again, for voting my studio one of Cape County’s Best for the third year in a row.  

I am beyond thrilled!

Much Love and Peace,
Carrie, Cassie, Rachel and Jenny

We had a great time at the ABC expo again this year. This was our fourth time doing the show and each time it just gets better and better. We loved meeting everyone and had a blast handing out pens, bags, fliers, and even chocolate! YUM! Here are a few photos from the day and you can find out who our $500 winner is down below!
