honoring the adventure of your heart
from baby to belly

The day our children are born we cease to love with moderation.
Thus, they become our reason to live.
In fact, not only are they the personification of our challenges, but also the manifestation of our strengths.
Let me help you relive these emotions through my lens.
Are you planning a Homebirth? Hospital Birth? Birth Center Birth? California based, ArtShaped Photography offers Birth Photography services in Santa Monica and through out the Los Angeles area. Let me show you what the Essence of Birth looks like.

Undoubtedly, there is tremendous joy in witnessing the unfolding pace of a family’s rhythm.

Certainly from pregnancy through birth, but also during the slow, yet furious days that follow.

For this reason, as your Los Angeles birth photographer and Doula, I am passionate about honoring your parenting quest.
Moreover, my mission is to guide you and inspire you to remember and, above all, cherish the present moment through my Los Angeles Birth Photography; no matter your race, gender and orientation.

"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".

-Shelly F.

"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.
She is a delight and her work speaks for itself! ".

-Maria B.

"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!"

-Maura M.

"[...]phenomenal doula,

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."

-Malia M.

"[...] 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".

-Anna C

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".

-Terri Ann D.

"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...!)"

I serve West LA through our the greater Los Angeles areas and I strive to honor the journey of your heart.

Most importantly, I am here to empower you and celebrate you through a deep understanding of the passage of life within the reflection of the beauty and rawness of birth photography and videography.

“Sometimes you’ll never know the true value of a moment, until it becomes a memory”. Dr Seuss

Furthermore, pregnancy is such a delicate, exhilarating period of our lives.

Nonetheless, it can also bring a substantial amount of stress.

Embracing change is therefore the first step towards a conscious journey to parenting.
But you don’t have to feel overwhelmed and isolated!
In fact, I believe that with the appropriate support, you can create an experience than is empowering and memorable.
Equally before and beyond birth.
