Diane Martins is owner and photographer for Starrie Night Photography. A stay at home mom to one cute little boy, she’s always had a passion and an eye for photography and has recently decided to make it her reality. Specializing in natural light photography, Diane primarily photographs families and children/babies, capturing fun, candid moments.
A few months ago, an article was circulating about the importance of the Mom staying in the picture. It was a very honest article written by woman, who like many of us isn’t thrilled with her post-baby appearance. We’ve all been there; avoiding the camera in favour of focusing all of our attention on the kids. However, like the article said all children care about is their mama, and the love you have for them.
For me, this article solidified the importance of family photos.When he’s grown and has a family of his own, I want him to look back and see how much I am here, how perfectly he fit in my arms for a hug, how much fun we had together and just how loved he is.
Diane met with my son and I on a snowy Saturday afternoon to brave the elements and capture some fantastic moments. She made it fun and enjoyable, even though we were all extremely cold! The ease at which she interacted with my hyper -first-snow-of-the-year boy was fantastic. She was able to help him focus for the important shots, and indulged his goofy side for a few fun ones. Our favourite part of the session? The snowball fight! They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right? I’d say that’s pretty accurate.
Let Diane help you capture some precious family moments, she’s giving away one 30 minute mini session at the location of your choice in Kitchener/Waterloo (indoor or outdoor, depending on the light). Giveaway ends December 15th at MIDNIGHT.
