Based in Citrus Heights, California, Diana has been photographing babies, families and weddings since 1993. Her passion for photography began as a child in Pennsylvania after receiving her first camera. By the time her first roll of film was developed, she had already decided she would be a photographer. Diana studied photography in high school and planned on attending the Art Institute in Pittsburgh, but fate brought her into a medical career. Initially working as an EMT/Firefighter, Diana went on to become a registered nurse (RN).

During her 14 years working in the hospital, Diana continued to pursue her love of photography, as well as taking as many photography classes as possible. She eventually relocated to California with her husband, and after juggling her nursing career and running a part-time photography business, Diana stepped out on her own and opened her home studio full-time. By 2004, she moved to a larger house with a separate studio apartment – just perfect to run her business from! Her new location is set on an acre with a creek, oak trees and has old stone steps, which work wonderfully for her children and family portraiture. She now has a part-time staff of 4, is active in her local and state affiliate of PPA, and is an active member of the Professional Photographers of Sacramento Valley.

Diana also combines her nursing background with her expertise in photography by volunteering with local area hospitals. She founded a program in 2004, called “Little Blessings” where she will coordinate with the nurses in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units and photograph chronic and terminally ill babies at no charge. The parents receive a beautiful 8×10 of their baby, as well as a CD slideshow set to music to keep.

Diana Miller served as President of the Professional Photographers of Sacramento Valley in 2004 and was their Speaker Chairperson in 2005. She also serves as a Print Competition Judge. She regularly participates in the PPSV Monthly Print Competition. She is also a committee member for the Association for Wedding Professionals International and served as a Board member in 2003 – 2004 for the Professional Photographers of California. Diana was profiled in Rangefinder Magazine in 2005 and also has her work shown in numerous wedding magazines across Northern California. She also taught a Super Monday Class at her studio in 2005 and has been a speaker at PPC convention twice.

For the last 10 years, Diana has also been the photographer at many local non-profit events, fundraisers, political and corporate events and also volunteers her photography at many local charities. A partial list of her clients and notables she has photographed include:
