from baby to belly
They become our reason to live.
The personification of our challenges, and the manifestation of our strengths.
Let me help you relive these emotions through my lens.
Let me show you what the Essence of Birth looks like.
"I was lucky enough to have Diana as my maternity photographer AND my birth photographer. She listened intently to what envisioned and it all came to fruition, and then some. My family says it looks like I had a photo journalist at our birth; the photos are so raw and lovely. Knowing that she is a doula as well added a certain level of calm to our home birthing experience. She is a delight and her work speaks for itself!”
"Oh my goodness!! Diana is amazing.
I had a super fun experience with her during my pregnancy photo shoot. [...]To top off our super fun day, the pictures turned out better than I could have hoped. Diana made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera and helped me feel natural and beautiful. I highly recommend Diana to anyone who is looking for an incredible photographer. I'd give her 10 STARS if I could".
"Diana is far and away the best family photographer that we have experienced. I have 4 very active boys and she made beauty out of the seeming chaos. She takes the time to really SEE the person and then captures it on the screen. She is patient, very funny, professional and so loving that we naturally felt at ease. And the most important thing is that our photos are INCREDIBLE. Seriously I can not reccommend her enough. SHE IS THE BEST!"
incredible photographer, down-to-earth mom, and all-around good human. [...]
I didn't know how much I needed Diana until the day of the birth of my son.
She's patient, reassuring, confident, and understands the birth process on a medical and emotional level. I am eternally grateful for her guidance, support, and comforting presence throughout the entire experience."
"[...] Diana goes above and beyond in her work. She is a wonderful photographer and knowledgeable Doula who was tremendous support to myself and my husband. She knows how to work the hospital system, knew my midwife, and helped me through almost two days of back labor with grace. Even before the birth she met with us several times to help us prepare and is able to provide support and education from the perspective of both a Doula and mom. I would highly recommend Diana".
Diana is a compassionate doula. She is gentle and caring and provides helpful information before and after the birth of the baby. Diana showed loved for all members of the family. She is also an excellent photographer and can provide both doula and photography services".

"Thank you, Diana! I love the [...] photos. Thank you so much. I’m sure we will treasure these photos forever!
(As a single mom, I really appreciate [...] it. Otherwise I will not have pictures with my daughter...!)"
There is such joy in witnessing the unfolding pace of a family’s rhythm.
From pregnancy through birth and the slow, yet furious days following.
