End of Year Sessions

I officially started my career as a studio photographer nearly 20 years ago. I'll never forget it was the day after Thanksgiving, and I was working in the photo studio in the mall. The place was packed with families ready to take their annual photos to send out to friends and family for the holidays. For 8 holiday seasons, in Eugene, Albany, Salem, Roseburg, Portland, Seattle, & Kelso Washington, I photographed families and kids. While I loved being part of this tradition, over time I wanted this experience to be more, to be different. That's how M.Martinez Photo began.

Being invited to join the artist collective, Ideal Pdx, has been such a blessing. With their help, this year I'm able to offer special, End of Year Sessions in their brand-new studio space in southeast Portland. Normally, a studio session with me would be $500+, which is what makes these sessions so amazing because they're less than half that price! These special sessions are limited to only 3 Saturdays, November 26th, December 3rd, & 10th

Choose from a 30minute mini session, ideal for small families and those interested in a quick experience. Or a 1hour session, perfect for larger families or those who would like 2 outfits or looks. Families grow and change, but memories that you can look back on last a lifetime. Schedule your session online today.

All sessions include an online album where your favorite images can be downloaded* and/or shared with your family and friends online. Let your family order their favorites through the shopping cart option or add the print release for $150 to your session to print and keep your photos always.

Which session is best for me?

If your family has 5 people or less and you're interested in 1 look, the Mini Session is probably what you're looking for.

If you're interested in large family photos that include more than one family a 1hr session would be ideal for you. Or if your family of 5 or less are interested in more than one look during your session.

What if I want a holiday look?

No problem. While the focus of the photos isn't all about x-mas, there will be holiday items, accessories, and backgrounds available.
