It's beginning to look ALOT like Christmas


I'm so giddy now and  just bursting with the news  (OK--also bursting with the Trader Joe's holiday cookie collection) that Sweetness and Light Photography has the inside line to the North Pole this year and let me tell you, Santa is in rare form.  He's come all the way from the North Pole for his annual photos with local children at the Martinez Santa House AND he's kindly agreed to some special sessions at local outdoor venues this year with yours truly. What a gift! Thanks, Santa! I've always wanted to spend some quality time with Father Christmas and the people (and pets) who are drawn to him.  

Let me explain. We're doing holiday mini-sessions within 10 miles of Martinez for $195. Santa will join in on the fun for an additional $25. The sessions run from 30 to 60 minutes and result in at least 10-20 images in a gallery for you to choose from. We'll provide 3 hi-res jpegs and 15% off of anything in your gallery storefront (prints, additional jpegs, etc). You can order 5 additional photos for $200 or they're $50 each. The locations we've done so far this year for our mini-sessions range from a horse ranch with barn, the Alhambra Valley Christmas Tree Farm and Briones Park.  Other places might be the Martinez Marina, your home, Snake Road, a more urban alleyway; the only limit is how far our imaginations will go! Because Santa and I are booked on the weekend and Fridays these sessions are available Monday-Thursday only and space is very limited. Give me a call or text at 925-207-6347, Facebook me, Nicole diGiorgio or send an email to to book while sessions are still available!

The other exciting news is that we're going to be doing the photos at the Martinez Santa house this year! It's a whole new operation with a fresh backdrop and other goodies that will spruce up 'da house! These sessions are super-short (a few minutes) and though they're not custom they'll be leagues above what you've seen in the past. We're even going to offer some hours without Santa because sometimes the little ones aren't game to meet the big guy. That's OK. There's something for everyone. Stay tuned for more info about the Santa house. We are so  excited to partner with Main Street Martinez, Martinez Santa and the UPS store starting this Friday at the downtown Snow Frolic!
