When To Plan Your Family Portrait Session

The best time to plan your family portrait session is now!

The best time to plan your family portrait session is right now!

 

I often get phone calls from people asking me when is the best time to have their family portraits done.  My answer is always the same for each family and is quite true.  The best time to have your family portraits done is right now. Yes, right now, while you are thinking of it.  That doesn’t mean that you have to book your family portrait session for this week.  It means that it’s always a good time to start the process.  Call to make your pre-session consultation with us and get the ball rolling.  There are lots of things to consider.  What season of the year would you like? Start thinking about location options.  Would you like your photo session to be in our studio, at your home, at a nice park, at the beach?  There are many options when it comes to this. What will you all wear?  Do you need haircuts, hairstyles or anything else to prepare before that day?  When you meet with us for your session consultation, we will go over all of these options, share ideas with you and make recommendations to you based on your needs and desires.  Then we will choose a date for your session.  The sooner you book this, the more availability we will have.  Our calendar books up fast and during our busy season, we will have very limited open dates for family portraits.  If you book early, you can choose a date and time that will be most convenient for you, then you can start getting ready for the big day.

Whatever your wishes are, we can help you in the planning process to ensure that your family portraits are a beautiful and timeless addition to your home, that you and your family will cherish forever.  Don’t wait until your kids get older, you loose weight,  dye your hair, the weather is just right, you have extra money (what’s EXTRA money anyway?), or any of the other excuses we all use to talk ourselves out of things.  With proper planning, you can finally take “Family Portraits” off your To Do List and put them on your walls!

With Tax Returns arriving (extra money?), our appointments are booking up now for the rest of the seasons in 2013.  So, don’t delay, make your appointment to meet with us and book your family portrait session now, for the best flexibility in choosing your month/date.  Our new portrait package options make it very easy for you to choose, because they all include the session, either indoors or outdoors at our studio or at a local location at no extra charge. Plus, all of our packages include a product credit, so you can build your own package and get exactly what you want, from our selection of options, including framed wall portraits, canvas artwork, gift prints, family albums, photo books, holiday ornaments, holiday cards and lots of other fun and unique products we offer.  Book and pay for your package now, and there’s no need to worry about having money to pay for your order later.  It’s included! 🙂

Call today to book your no-cost session consultation and get started on accomplishing this goal.  Your family portrait become more and more valuable as the years pass! You and your family will be so glad you did this!  When’s the best time to book your family portrait session?  Right now!  Don’t wait. Do it now!  Call 508-216-5898 or e-mail us: info@DiazDD.com for more information and to schedule your pre-session consultation.

We look forward to creating many beautiful and cherished memories that you and your family will treasure forever!  We hope to see you soon!

DIAZ DIGITAL DISCOVERIES – SEXY VOICE CONTEST WINNERS!

Hello Blog fans!

Our sexy voice contest was a great success! Thanks to all of the people who called in to enter.
I think it’s funny that all of the entrants were females.  Coincidence?  I’m not sure.  I had wondered during the contest if any men were going to enter, since it was anyones contest to win, and not a single male entry.  I guess that means that only women have sexy voices?  Huh!  🙂

Anyway…I had no idea when starting the contest how difficult it was going to be to choose!  All of the entrants were certainly eligible to win First Prize and the standings order had changed very quickly in just a matter of an hour each day during the week.

It was fun listening to all the callers who left their entry on our voice recorder…along with other information as well…but the only thing that counted for the contest were the specific rules, to keep everything fair.

Here is a recap of the rules and the prizes:

(previously posted)
Please note that we will only accept your voice on the recorder, so you must call during the allotted times only and leave your voice recording to enter. We will judge from all of the sexy voices entered during both weeks and choose the top 3 to win, First prize, Second prize and Third prize. All entrants will be updated on the running via our Facebook fan page until the winner is announced on June 28th.
First Prize winner will have their sexy voice used in our upcoming promotion which will be broadcast to the public (this could be your claim to fame)! Sexy voice credit will be listed in our promos. Winner will also receive a fun, Free Studio fashion photo session and an 11×14 portrait of their choice from that session. ($250 value) Fashion photo may possibly be used in conjunction with same promo as well.
Second prize will win a $100 Gift Card from our studio and be mentioned in our social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Blog, Linked-in).

So with no further delay here are the winners!
 
3rd:  Maria Brown.  Anyone having the opportunity to hear Maria’s voice, will agree with me that she could read the phone book and make it sound like a fairytale novel!  When I first heard her voice, I took in a big sigh and thought she was already the winner.  Thank you Maria so very much! Maria wins a $50 Diaz Digital Discoveries Gift Card.
 
2nd:  Jayne Antos.  Jayne has the type of voice that would be great for those movies…you know…THOSE MOVIES!  The ones where there’s a female computer voice. (What were you thinking!?)  The computer voice is counting down the ship’s self-destruct sequence in a sexy tone.  The bad news is your about to die.  The good news is that the last thing you get to hear is a sexy female voice. 🙂  Jayne came very close to winning, as she called several times and had multiple entries and I am a huge fan of sci-fi and female computer voices!  LOL.  Thank you for entering Jayne!  Jayne wins a $100. Gift Card From us.
 
1st: Joanna Aviles.  Now Joanna…all I can say is… WOW!  Joanna’s voice has it all.  Soft-spoken, sweet, tender and just what we were looking for in our upcoming promotion.  I can’t wait to share what it is, but as it is still in the planning stages, we can’t divulge anything yet.  Just know that Joanna’s voice will be featured saying our tag line “Discover the beauty in your world.”  Thank you Joanna for entering, calling in faithfully and congratulations on winning our contest!  We will be contacting you soon to make arrangement for you to come to our studio.

Newborn Baby Photography

Last week I had the honor of photographing a newborn baby session.  There are so many reasons why I love being a photographer and this is one of them.  The wonder of the miracle of birth is something that I have always been amazed by.

In just the first few weeks of a baby’s life they develop at a very rapid pace and their features change so fast!  That’s why I tell my clients to bring baby in just a week or two after they are born.  That is when all the changes happen and by the 4th week, baby doesn’t look at all like they did when they were first born.  Of course, there is a resemblance, but they do look different.

It’s just so wonderful to have professional portraits made of your baby when they are first born!  Most of our clients remark about how much they value those portraits and say that they can hardly remember their baby that small and innocent.  There’s just no comparison to the rest of the photos you will have of your child as the years fly by.

I know that (for me) every time I look at my daughter’s newborn portraits, (made on Day Two) they take me back and I remember the feelings I had inside back then; all the joy, the fear; the OMG now I have a baby! 🙂

A newborn baby is one of the most remarkable and memorable moments in a parent’s life.

Professional portraits of your newborn baby are unlike any photos you can take on your own.

If you are expecting, or know someone who is, and would truly cherish images of their baby in the very first stages of their life, please send them our way.  We will ensure that they have many images to remember their bundle of joy, how they first looked and revisit all of those wonderful feelings….for many, many years.
