black and white portrait of Diane Hamacher by Justin Hackworth


I’m a French native, wife, mom of two (not so) little ones and photography lover.

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. 

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 little girl twirling around the living room in her favorite dress. 

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

I would be honored to help your family capture your own magical moments.

Talk to you soon!
