What We Do
Carl Photography specializes in providing clients with the family and pet photography they need. We try to create lasting memories to keep and pass down as heirlooms, such as metal prints that will endure for generations. We understand that your pets are family members, which is why we are passionate about capturing the love and loyalty between you and your furry friends.
Aside from families and pets, we offer children’s photo sessions, professional headshots and commercial work.
At our studio, you can experience the advantage of working with professionals who offer great rates. We can handle all of the details of your shoot: unique posing, artistic lighting, subtle retouching, and special artwork.
Complete photo editing is included, with a wide choice of background changes. We bring out the best in everyone's appearance and erase distractions such as pet handlers.
We absolutely guarantee that you will have an enjoyable experience, while we deliver personalized service and produce tasteful portraits! For examples, please review our Testimonials and Portfolios pages.
Studio sessions are priced at $20 per subject. Examples of print prices are $19 for one 5x7, or $39 for an 8x10. Discount packages are available.
Areas We Serve
We gladly serve families from areas in Cumberland County and throughout South Central Pennsylvania at our studio in scenic Boiling Springs. We also are available for house calls in our area, including:
