Meet Diane

End of 2016, I was fortunate enough to leave my corporate job. In between school drop-off, toddler tantrums and selling swimming equipment at my corporate job, life was happening and flying by my eyes. To pursue my life long passion of photography, I finally decided to go back to school .

Photographing my family made me feel like I could freeze time. My camera reminds me that magic exists in the seemingly mundane moments of everyday life. Not the stuffy, posed holiday shots with cheesy smiles that we send to our relatives to let them know we are “Doing Great!”, but rather the photos that capture the realness of our lives.

The love, the chaos, the bedtime stories, the twinkle in the eyes of a toddler building a lego castle, and that big grin of a 4 year old girl twirling around the living room in her favorite dress. 

       Photographs remind us to slow down and savor the present moment. 

Visiting my photographs makes me and my clients remember what a precious gift life is. Nothing means more to me than my family and preserving those precious moments through photography.

I would be honored to help your family capture your own magic moments whether in your home or in my studio!
