What Clients are saying

From the very beginning Diane was super sweet and made us feel very comfortable with the whole process… Diane came to our home and immediately began interacting with our children who were 2.5 years and 6 months so that they were comfortable with her. We read to them and played with them and the entire shoot felt very natural.

Diane has been able to “disappear” and take some very “real” pictures of our family. Her photos reflect what we can see for ourselves when we watch our children play and live. We are amazed by the result.

She immediately put me at ease, and very quickly I forgot that she and her professional camera were there.  She was so discreet that I was able to remain natural as the young mother I had become even in front of the lens.  Very professional and brilliant with a highly developed artistic sense, Diane was able to capture the first days of my daughter’s life, her first emotions, her first smiles, her tiny hands and feet and especially all the complicity already emerging between a mother and her child.
