Di

Hi!  I’m Di & I’m so excited you’re here!  I’m a fun, fresh, natural-light photographer  with a heart full of love and a little sprinkle of crazy!

Photography is the beauty of life….captured.

Do you like Starbucks?  Pandora jewelry?  Sushi?  Wine, travel or bacon?  Good!  We are going to be great friends!  Most days, I’m working on the couch with my chi & pug in my lap right next to my sweetheart & either binging on The Big Bang Theory or keeping busy trying to ignore whatever sci-fi show my love is watching at the moment.  *giggle*

I always have a smile on my face & my cup is always 1/2 full!

I’m a dreamer, a creative, a photographer who loves my family and always has her bags packed ready for our next adventure.  As you probably guessed, I’m a Pandora, sushi & wine lover, mexican food connoisseur and championship Facebook checker.

It sounds cliché, but I literally grew up with a camera in my hand and a love for photography. My favorite Uncle Gary, “Iggy,” was/is a great photographer. He gave me my first camera, a 110 Vivitar, and I was in love. In High School I was on the yearbook staff and spent time taking photos of all the fun happenings and then developed my images in the school dark room. My formal photographic education is through the New York Institute of Photography, but as any photographer knows, the best education is through practice. Practice, practice and then more practice.

You don’t take a photograph.  You make it. Ansel Adams

As a born creative, when my creative “switch” is in the on position, I have to create —anything to let it out. In addition to photography I also love to crochet, knit, watercolor, draw, garden, write, cook, scrapbook, sew…you name it!

If you have a creative gene you know exactly what I mean!  I have 5 kids and 5 grandchildren and am blessed in so many ways.

I’d love to hear from you!  Drop me a note and let’s chat!
