We {Heart} Weddings + Thanksgiving = Big Savings 4 U

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Here at Christa Donald Photography, we’ve declared 2012 as the “Year of the Wedding!” We know you’ve been hard at work, carefully planning every detail of your day – the dress, the vows, the cake, the music. And we know your heart skips a beat when you imagine how it will feel when you’re finally introduced as “Mr. & Mrs.” In fact, weddings make our hearts flutter, too, and we can’t imagine a more enjoyable way to spend our time than capturing the magic of your wedding day — the tenderness in your first kiss as husband and wife, the hope as you look toward the future, the warmth and joy of family and friends as they gather to celebrate this new union. In this season of Thanksgiving, we’re so grateful to have had the good fortune to capture moments like these in the past year.

And from now until November 30, 2011, we’re celebrating our good fortune by passing on a little gift of thanks to you. When you reserve your 2012 wedding date with us, we’ll upgrade your wedding photography coverage at no cost to you (a $500 value)!

Contact Christa to schedule your consultation or to reserve your wedding date today (217.508.9729 or christa {at}


Announcing…Fall Mini Sessions (and a giveaway)!

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

It’s time, kids. Yep, you know what I’m talking about. It’s time to start thinking about Holiday cards! I know, I know…it’s not even Fall yet, we haven’t gone Trick or Treating or carved the turkey. But didn’t you see the giant Santa display at the big box store? That means it’s time. Just joshin’ with you…sort of. 🙂

In October, I’ll be holding Fall Mini-Sessions, both in Charleston, IL on October 8th, and Mahomet, IL, on October 22 (see below for details). Get out your comfiest, coziest sweaters, round up the gang and come play with me for a little while! Mini-sessions are a perfect way to discover what the Christa Donald Photography experience is all about (and for Dads who are SO not into having their pictures taken). Included with your 20-minute session, you’ll receive a disk containing 5-10 edited images with printing rights, as well as 25 5×7 custom-designed holiday cards with envelopes…for only $99.
And get this! Once all the sessions have been filled, I’ll draw one of my mini-session clients’ names at random and they’ll receive their session for FREE. (That’s a 1 in 12 chance…better than Vegas odds!)
Sessions will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis, and due to their limited nature, they’ll fill up fast. You can book online here — no muss, no fuss — or you’re always welcome to contact me directly.

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

Summertime is in full swing here, and I must say that now the girls are a little bit older, I think Summer has eclipsed Fall as my favorite time of year! So many opportunities to make wonderful summer memories — playing in the sprinkler, backyard barbecues, eating corn on the cob, watching fireworks on the 4th of July, catching fireflies…and the list goes on.
