Christmas Minis 2017

Hey guys! With Christmas just around the corner, and holiday cards now sitting pretty on mantels, I wanna share some of my favourite photos from this years holiday mini sessions!

My aim, always, is to give you FREEDOM. During my mini sessions, you are FREE from artificial props to distract from feeling connection, or constrict movement. No stiff posing, I pinky promise! You are FREE to allow your personalities to shine, your love to flow, and your laughter to bubble over. You are FREE to enjoy these images long past boxing day, and display 'em all year round! You know why? Because it's purely YOU guys + your love.  

So, without further ado, here are some images that showcase your love and joy, in a gorgeous tree farm setting! 

If they speak your language, and you wanna know more for next year, keep reading, my friends. I'll let you in on all the lovely details on what to expect from the process, how YOU have creative control in the card design, and how to hop on my "down-low" list for next year!

Also, I wanna say THANK YOU! To everyone who came out for this years mini's, to everyone who booked with me at any point over the course of the year, and to anyone who even enquired about booking with me. THANKS SO MUCH! It truly means a lot. And, for those of you who ever think of booking with me, I'd LOVE to make some photo magic happen with you!

Merry Christmas, lovies!

K, so what's included, might you ask?

Well, let me tell ya, babes, cause it's quite the process. My mini's aren't your typical wham-bam-thank-you-man, kinda deal. I start off long before our session to make the most of our time together. You'll get a questionnaire so I learn more about you + your peeps. You'll get a bunch of prep tips + tricks specifically designed for mini sessions! And, you'll also get a what-to-wear guide... which I switch up based on the setting I'm shooting in.

On the day of the session, you get 20 minutes of me working to make you FEEL comfortable while you LOOK beautiful, and draw out those natural smiles, love, and laughter. I'm all about genuine and simplicity... I feed off freedom - both mine and yours - to capture lovely moments the best way I can!   

After our session, I carefully curate your gallery to approx 35 images which I fully edit and deliver to all of you within 2 weeks. You select your top  5 images included - which will grace your cards, and which you'll receive the high-res digital files to. Of course, if you want 'em all, they're yours at an affordable gallery upgrade. 

Then comes the FUN part! Included in my Christmas Mini's are 25 gorgeous 5x7 Christmas cards, FOLDED - so they sit pretty on your loved one's mantels! You're sent a private online Xmas Card Collection with loads of design styles to choose from. These can be mixed and matched, and we work together to create a card you love! 

I guarantee shipments by Dec 1st so you've got plenty of time to address & mail 'em out for your near + dear to admire all month long.

Have a peak...

There's sooooo many more card design options to chose from and tinkering is limitless. These are just a few!

Ok, party people, if you're interested in being notified - in advance - for next year's Christmas Sessions, please shoot me an email with "Christmas Mini 2018" in the subject line. I'll be announcing all the deets to past clients + those interested, prior to my general public announcement. Since I only have a limited amount of sessions that I book, in order to ensure a smooth turnaround for galleries, card design, and ordering / shipping... with a promise of a delivery before DEC 1st, sessions book up quickly and I do not open up more space once they're gone.

So if you want in for 2018, lemme know, love, and I'll be sure you're on the secret announcement list.  

Cheers to family and fun and documenting your love from the heart!!!

Holiday Sessions

If you desire love-soaked family photos, with your faves printed in a rad 5x7 christmas card bundle to mail out to your near + dear, this has got your name written all over it!

I wanna celebrate you + your family. A years worth of love, laughter, hard work, adventures, and growth... and wrap it up in beautiful images that are true to you. 

How we gonna do this in 20 minutes?! Well, m'friends, besides starting off with a questionnaire diving deep into what's uniquely important to you + your crew, I'm gonna focus on what I always crave; honest + beautiful moments. So, while there won't be any christmas-y props, you will be set amongst evergreens, marking the season we're in, as I work at drawing out your love + connection + all dem pretty smiles. And, don't you worry about the kiddos - I come with bribes (read: pressies) to keep their attention the whole way through! 

So, let's DO this! E-mail me at dianna@diannamartin.ca to book. A $100 deposit will hold your time-slot, and keep an eye out for some goodies sent via email in the form of fun-filled questionnaires + tips on how to prepare for a killah session + ideas on how to dress.

Also, if you want more images, I do offer upgrade's to receive the full gallery which you can decide later. AND if you need more cards, you can upgrade those, too.

Now, for the nitty gritty: spots are limited, folks. Half day availability on the Friday and a full day on the Saturday. Rain date: Sunday Oct 22. Once these reservations are gone, unfortunately I won't be opening up any more space for mini sessions. Howevaaaa... for those of who'd prefer a longer session, I have a little something for you. Book a full family session by the end of the week for October + November and you'll also get a bundle of 25 printed Christmas Cards!

k, jump on it!
