The Christensen family
The Spring in Utah is spectacular. I found this marvelous private orchard and we played in the blossoms!
breathtaking • moments • captured
It's truly amazing how fast our families change! From one year to the next I can hardly recognize my kids in the past family photos! I consider family photos one of the most important type of sessions. Nothing brings me more joy than looking back at my own family as I grew up and remembering those great times. Family sessions don't have to be a stressful occasion though! I will guide you through the process, from picking a date, a location, and guiding you through outfit choices. I make the session as fun and stress free as I can, and you come away with images that can last forever!
A moment in time
Are you ready to see if we are a good fit? Fill out my contact form and let's get to know each other! I need a little bit of information from you and then I will reach out and we can discuss options for your family session!
1. Say Hello
2. Making it official
We've chatted, we've discussed pricing, we are a perfect fit! Now its time to book! I will send you a photography quote and agreement. You will pay your retainer fee and sign the agreement, and then your spot is secured on my schedule!
3. ask me Anything
You are on the schedule, now what?! I will send you a questionnaire so that I know what your priorities are in the session. It also answers some questions you may have. But you can also reach out to me at any time as we approach your session! Send me photos of your outfits for advice, or have me send you a color scheme that will work with our location!
4. session day!
It's session day! We will have a pre-arranged location and time to meet, ask me any questions you may have or last minute advice. Once the session starts just relax and let me guide you! I will help with posing, find the best light, and find ways to coax real smiles and interaction.
5. your photographs
Within 1 week of your family session, you will receive your proof gallery. In the gallery will be all the best images from your session. Choose which collection you would like to purchase, and choose your favorite images for me to edit beautifully! I also offer an entire library of print and art option to optimize your beautiful images! After seeing your final images is when you can select any prints or products to purchase.
Collections start at just $250
A retainer of $100 is due at the time of booking. This fee holds your spot on my calendar and includes the time and talent of the photographer (prep, shoot, and editing), the use of props and wardrobe, and the professional editing of your images. This fee is included in the total of your chosen collection after your session!
FINALLY, CHOOSE YOUR PRINT ARTWORK
THEN, CHOOSE YOUR DIGITAL COLLECTION
START WITH paying your retainer
After your session, you will be able to view a proof gallery of your images. At this point you can choose how many images you wish to purchase! It's that easy.
Can you image yourself sitting on your couch with you kids with a gorgeous hand crafted album of your family? I can. I have a plethora of beautiful options for how you can print and preserve your family memories.
"Diane is an absolutely amazing photographer! The pictures were more than we could have dreamed. Diane is a total baby whisperer, and captured the most angelic views of our precious little girl. Her vision for these pictures totally captured our style and made it so easy for us and our baby. We will cherish these pictures forever!"
"We had the most WONDERFUL experience working with Diane. We hired her to photograph our birth story at the hospital, and she did such an amazing job! She was on-call, easy to reach, and sacrificed so much of her time to stay at the hospital to make sure she didn't miss the big moments. Her turn around time with the photos was also so quick. The photos were BEAUTIFUL, better than I could have hoped for! And I am SO grateful that I have our labor and delivery experience documented in such a respectful and beautiful way. We had such a great experience with Diane on the birth experience, that we couldn't help but hire her for the newborn photoshoot as well."
"Diane does just the most beautiful job! She is so kind and wonderful to work with! I had an amazing experience doing maternity pictures with her and couldn’t be happier with the result!"
"Diane is an amazing newborn photographer!! She's photographed 2 of my babies and I have loved both!! She gives you plenty of time to nurse baby so they are nice and sleepy. She's so patient with older siblings. She's super quick to get photos to you and is just great to work with. And the photos are amazing! Definitely goes above and beyond! She even bought a special prop just for my session!! It was so sweet of her! She's has everything- wraps, swaddles, props, headbands, tons of cute stuff."
"Diane has been amazing to work with!
We had her take our newborn/family photos and she was incredible! She spent as much time as necessary to get the best shots and was so gentle with our newborn (she obviously knows what she's doing with little babies). She was incredibly professional and has great options in her at-home studio. She captured the best picture I've ever had taken with a newborn too! I couldn't say enough good things about my entire experience with her. I will definitely be reaching out to her again with my next baby/family photos and highly recommend her to anyone else!"
