Introduction: I’m Diane – A portrait and lifestyle photographer. I book families, seniors, kiddo's, couples, maternity in the St. Louis Metro Area. Check out my website for mini specials! I'm not allowed to provide my website here, so just search "Diane Cannon Photography" I believe that each day is a gift. For that reason, I see beauty in the little things, and I value the time we spend together. I bring my heart to my work and all my interactions. I truly enjoy what I do and I feel so lucky that I get to be there to document anything to do with love and happiness. I love connecting with my clients (I also struggle with calling you that since you’re so much more to me!) – and I absolutely love making people happy. I encourage you to let loose and be yourself, helping you feel completely comfortable in front of my lens. A BIT ABOUT MY PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE: I love getting to know your stories – then translating them into genuine, warm, life-filled photographs. I photograph from the heart, clicking my shutter when I *feel* something so that you will too when you look at your photos. Connecting with you brings me joy and I take great care to make sure you feel comfortable and happy. Since learning to develop my own film in high school, photography captivated me. I then went on to study photojournalism at Washington University, and I’m continually inspired by the beauty that can be found everywhere. Photography is incredibly rewarding for me – there’s something so exciting about capturing emotive, real moments. My photographs celebrate your life, your love, your happiness in a natural, genuine way. Let’s connect — I’m so excited to hear from you! I’d love to provide your story in photos.

Diane is an amazing photographer!! Myself and my twin daughters were visiting family in bowling green Missouri, and had their senior photos taken by her in bowling green. She was always responsive to my messages on n a timely manner. She had great ideas on locations since I was not from the area. Her photos came out exceptionally well, and we are very pleased. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!! I would recommended her to anyone. She’s wonderful, fun personality, she even brought props. FIVE STARS EASILY!!

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    BOOKING A SESSION: As soon as you are interested in booking a session, shoot me an email or give me a call. We will discuss all the specifics of what you are looking for with your photo session. Some things we will solidify are what type of photos you’d like (senior, family, etc), what location you are interested in, when is the best time for your photos, and which pricing package you would like. I’ll compile all this information in a convenient email and contract and send it your way. The email will also include information such as the details of the session, how to pay, help on what to wear, and a few other tidbits of information. A Paypal invoice will follow, however, you are welcome to pay with cash or check (all payment is due one week before your session).  Once the session fee or deposit is paid, your session is booked. Edited photos are available within 2 weeks of your session and 6-8 weeks for a wedding. You can order prints, single digital files, session USBs, and many other items straight from your online gallery.   YOUR PHOTO SESSION: We will meet at the selected location at the scheduled time, go over any special photo requests or needs you have, and then get shooting! We will do lots of different poses, backgrounds, and walk around our location to get new perspectives. I try to keep things relaxed, talk about you and your family, and try not to make it all about posing or stiff smiles. I like to capture the candid moments just as much as the smiling-at-the-camera moments.  I’m happy to accommodate any fun posing ideas you have, or any props you’d like to incorporate. At the end of the session, I’ll answer any last questions and then we’re all finished! The following are a couple tid bits of information that can make your photo experience more enjoyable: If you have young children, feel free to bring anything that will keep them happy (e.g. snacks, juice, favorite toy, etc.). Please remember the weather. If it is hot, you may want to bring a water bottle; cold, maybe a jacket between shots. Please feel free to bring any props that you find fun (I’ve had people bring sunglasses, hats, bicycles, signs, dogs, and even horses!). If you are planning a clothing change, remember that it may need to be done in the car as many locations are remote.   AFTER YOUR SESSION: As soon as your session is over, I transfer your photos onto my computer with double backup, and begin editing. At that point, I will send you an email for dropbox. You are welcome to order prints from my professional lab through your gallery or use your digital files to get prints made at your favorite lab. Specialty photo albums and photo books can be ordered directly from me. Albums and books are individually designed to best reflect your photo shoot. Please contact me for more information on these items, and allow several extra weeks for specialty item processing. My goal is to give you natural, timeless photography that captures your unique personality. That means that through my editing process, my goal is to make your photos look as natural as possible while still making you look 110% your best. There are beautiful editing techniques out there, and they are changing all the time, however, I want you to look back on your photos in 50 years and be just as impressed with them as you are now. Just like fashion, editing styles become dated. But I feel that photos with natural colors, simple editing, and using light and color to capture beautiful photos, instead of heavy post-processing, will give you a priceless gift that will last generations. Through all that, I want to capture your real personality and relationships through the images. You will of course get the traditional “everyone smiling at the camera photo,” but you will also get photos of you laughing, interacting with your loved ones, being silly, and just basically pictures of how you really are. We don’t all stand together and smile in the same direction, we smile at each other, and those images speak so beautifully about the relationships between people and families. I strive to make your experience with Diane Cannon Photography as easy as possible, and if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact me via Thumbtack. I am happy to help!
