I’m Diane, the owner and artistic photographer of Diane Nicole Photography. I am located in a small-not-so-small town in northern California called Chico.
Sierra Nevada Beer, have you heard of it? That’s where it’s made and it’s my home town. I feel like that’s always been the way I’m able to geographically describe where Chico is. It’s also something us Chicoans are pretty proud of and gives me a chance to brag.
I was a wanderer. I lived in Florida for a long time. I traveled and learned to surf and can honestly say that the ocean is where my heart will always wander back to. I also lived in Lake Tahoe and fell in love with snowboarding and paddle boarding. There is something so special about that lake and the people there. I feel these places bring such like minded folks into my world and I have been blessed to be able to photograph people in the places that they hold so dear.
I can’t tell you in a short story why I love photography so much. It could be because every session or wedding I capture tells a story. They’re always unique and I can always relate to wanting to capture the in-between moments. Those moments I personally would hope someone could unobtrusively see and freeze in time.
I feel that as a photographer that’s where I shine. I can sense those intimate moments, the tender connections, that loving gaze we all cherish about one another and snap it into an image forever.
Let me capture your love, your story!
