We all love a good story, and we all have one!
I create storytelling art that captures your personality, and the spirit of the moment, in a way that is relaxed, natural, and fun. Celebrating your real life and relationships with documentary photography, unscripted and unposed, is my favorite way to do this.
I'm also a writer, dancer, anthropologist, musician, teacher, advocate, adventurer, and mother of two wonderful boys. I've worked with children of all ages for more than twenty years, and I am delighted by babies, kids, dogs, cats and general family fun/chaos.
I'm happiest when I'm creating, wandering in the woods, traveling, and spending time with family, friends, and my dog, Tango.
Who do you love and what do you love to do? I'd love to photograph your story!
a little more about me...
I grew up in New Hampshire.
I would rather be outside, preferably by a lake, an ocean, or in the mountains.
I have a BA in Anthropology and African Studies from Indiana University, and although I don't do it as often as I would like, I love to travel.
I teach Music Together, a unique research-based early childhood music program for children and the grown-ups who love them.
I love to read. One of my all time favorites is Dandelion Wine, by Ray Bradbury, for the way he captures the feel of childhood.
I recently mentored with Kirsten Lewis, one of the world's best family documentary photographers.
I could probably carry on a conversation in Swahili, Spanish or French, so long as it was about such subjects as where my pencil is, how to get to the library, or what I'd like for lunch.
Dancing is one of my favorite things to do. I believe that music and the arts are for everyone, and are part of what make us uniquely human.
I love standup comedy: performance art that makes you laugh, and then makes you think.
If I could swing it, I would be nomadic.
My family is incredibly important to me.
I'm based in Northern Virginia, and you'll occasionally find me in New Hampshire and Rehoboth, Delaware--places I'd love to photograph you or your family as well!
Here's to a beautiful winter and cherishing the everyday! ~Diana
