We are excited to announce that we will be the Exclusive Photographers at Dirr Nurseries this Holiday Season!
Dirr Nurseries is owned and run, to this day, by Tom Dirr. He bought the farm and started planting pine seedlings back in 1959 and before he knew it, he was in the Cut-Your-Own Christmas Tree business! Tom and his wife still live in the adorable little house on the property and through the years their children and grandchildren have helped on the farm.
The Tree Farm opens for the season on the day after Thanksgiving through December 23rd! Families can travel the grounds and stay warm in the car as they navigate through 3000 feet of all-weather roads. Dirr offers flat-rate pricing on Cut-Your-Own trees, so you can literally choose any tree you want without worrying about it being too expensive! There are a variety of types and sizes of trees to choose from, like Ball & Burlap, or Wholesale Christmas trees, so everyone is satisfied! Saws are provided to those who plan to cut their own tree, and their trained professionals will shake, bale, and secure your tree to any vehicle to ensure it travels safely to your destination.
In addition to the experience of harvesting your own Christmas tree, there are also a lot of things to see and do at the farm! They offer horse-drawn open-carriage rides by Karen's Carriage, a petting zoo, AND Grandma's famous hot cocoa and cookies! All these things and more for FREE just for visiting Dirr Nurseries!
The best part is, we get to join in on all the fun! Essenza will be there helping to preserve your traditions and memories of picking the perfect tree! This could be anything from a private session with us photo-journaling your family's time at the farm, to a quick 10 minute mini session on select dates.
Storybook Session (All Inclusive) $1,525: 1.5 hour session, documenting your family on the Christmas Tree Farm. We'll have a photo-journalistic approach to capturing your family's sentimental traditions as you take your time to explore the beautiful lay of the land. Towards the end of your trip, we'll stop to pose the perfect family portraits. All of this will help us create a beautiful 8x8 album that will be a keepsake in the family for generations to come. Also included in this package, is a framed 11x14 wall portrait or wrapped canvas that you can bring out every year to commemorate this season's memories. You'll also have the copyright to 14 Hi-Resolution files for printing. Call us at the studio 513.831.5351 to schedule and plan every detail from clothing, to your specific traditions and vision to make this the perfect holiday experience! Sessions can be scheduled as early as October 1st and extend through December 9th to guarantee select products back for the holidays!
