How long has it been since your last portrait?
Can you remember? How old was your youngest child in that photograph? If you're like most people, it's probably been a while. Families change and grow. Before you know it, the kids are off to college and once they’re gone, who knows when you'll be all together again. In any case, if it's been more than a couple years, it's time for an update (if it's been more than 10, don't wait another minute to call). Our photographer, Dean R. Gurr, has been creating beautiful portraits for 25 years and works well with kids and adults alike, helping everyone have fun and enjoy the experience. Read on to learn more about our sessions and then call us (530-534-3278) to check appointment availability and have us answer any other questions you may have. Don't worry, we won't pressure you into anything. We just don't work that way.
Deluxe Family Portrait Session $129.00
Our Deluxe Family Session includes a pre-consultation appointment with our photographer to discuss locations, clothing preferences, portrait themes, and the like. This planning session helps set the stage for your session. Secondly, your session can be scheduled in our studio, at your home, a local park, or anywhere that is special to you and your family (travel fee may apply over 10 miles). Families as large as 8 are covered by the cost and grandparents are always welcome to join in the session absolutely FREE! "Break out" groupings are also included. This means that we can photograph the whole family, then the kids together, just the parents, individual studies of each child—what ever combination you desire. As with all of our portrait lines, your satisfaction is always guaranteed, or you money back.
Single Grouping Family Session $99
This is for the family who wants grouping and one grouping only (You, your spouse and the kids all together for instance). We will take several poses of the family group for a good variety of images. If you think you might want those "break out" groupings as described above, please book a Deluxe Session.
Couples Portrait Study - $79
How lucky we are to find the one. The one who made your heart literally stop when you first saw him. The one whose smile makes you weak in the knees. The one who said yes and I do. The one you love. There is no greater joy than finding that person that you are meant to go through life with. Whether yours is a blossoming relationship, or one that is about to turn golden, let CIC create a special portrait that celebrates the uniqueness of your love and commitment. Your images can be created in our studio, a local park, your home, or another location that is special to the two of you.
Individual Portrait Study - $69
You are special...unique (that's what our Momma's told us, so you know it's true). Whether you are 1 or 100, celebrate who you are with a creative portrait of yourself. Come with ideas, or let us run with our creativity--either way, we specialize in making it a fun and comfortable experience. Dean's easy going attitude will quickly make you feel at ease and (as most of his clients confess) actually enjoy being in front of the camera! Don't wait for the "perfect" time either. We hear it frequently, "I'll wait until I loose a few pounds." Sometimes that little statement is enough to put off the process for decades. Rest assured that, whatever your concern on how you may look, our skilled photographic and retouching techniques can make you look better that you imagine. Want us to shave 10 or 20 pounds, request a slim-down; want us to shave 10-20 years, just let us know how much to soften the laugh-lines. Making you look your best is our specialty.
Just the Kids - $69
Complimentary Individual Study of Each
Blink, and they grow. You don't notice it so much from one day to the next, but after a year goes by it's amazing to see how much they've changed! Some kids we see every year, other's just at those milestone years. Either way, if one of your children just jumped two shoe sizes, perhaps now is them time to call for a portrait appointment. Our focus is on fun and capturing the true personality of your children, not just what he or she looks like. Bring ideas, props, costumes, favorite stuffed animal--whatever may make this portrait session special and unique.

The CIC Recency Portrait
The CIC Regency Finish is standard on all portrait prints. Complete portrait retouching and enhancement is included for every pose. It all begins when our skilled retouching artists scrutinize every inch of your face in order to make it perfect. It takes a little more time this way, but your complexion is so flawless and so much smoother, it's worth the extra effort. You won't find portraits this beautiful anywhere else! Your portraits then receive TLC hand finishing by our production experts who apply an incredibly durable acrylic surface (no need for glassed frames) and carefully mount them to sturdy artboard to help them keep their lasting beauty up to five times longer than standard prints. The CIC portrait is a true masterpiece.
At Creative Imaging Center, you decide exactly what you want in order to fit your exact needs and budget. You’ll never be pressured into getting anything you don't want or need. Let's say you need one nice portrait for your wall and some wallets to give away. Does that mean you have to get some minimum assortment with a bunch of additional pictures you don't need? No way. You have the complete freedom to get as many or as few as you wish, with gift sizes starting at as low as $39.00, depending on size, quantity, and timeliness of your order. Some people spend $200., others $2000. What you spend is entirely up to you, without any pressure--ever.
