Current Theme Session Info - DDCPhotography


Carrie A. Sattizahn, Owner & Photographic Artist


Wondering what exactly is a theme session? It is around a 15-20 minute session where I have one backdrop set up and have a bunch of props all ready, with a holiday, seasonal, or other fun theme designed by DDC. All sessions are by appointment only, so you have no waiting. You arrive at my studio, we take a couple different poses using a bunch of the props, and get you some cherished portraits before your child decides "I'm done!"

Your theme session fee includes a minimum of 3 digital images on CD (or via download gallery) with a print release, so you can use them to create photo cards or other photo gifts. Seasonal portraits make wonderful gifts for grandparents and other family members. Some theme sessions are also perfect for couples or children of all ages!

Some outdoor theme sessions are available throughout the year when the weather permits. Contact DDC to schedule a session!


Valentine sessions will be offered from February 4th thru February 11th. Below is a list of time slots for these sessions.

Time slots will be adjusted as needed to be as accommodating as possible to clients and also to allow for reasonable turn around time of portrait editing to be maintained. Please click on "Contact DDC" above to schedule your theme session time. Thank You!
