IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU,
I’M DIONA RENEÉ
I began capturing images on film when I was still in Elementary school. My first camera was a blue 80s Le Clic 110. Throughout school, I was that kid that always carried around a camera. I got it honest, my mom never went anywhere without her camera, so in a huge way she’s the reason I developed a love of imagery. I still can’t believe that my parents paid for all of that film to be developed for so many years! I took some very random photos back then!
Nowadays when I pick up my camera, I strive to create emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. I believe in real moments and the kind of images that remind you of the joy of those simple moments. Finding a photographer is more than just hiring someone that holds a camera and snaps pictures. Photography is about carefully crafting and capturing those special moments in time. The ups and even downs in your life; your story, are all intertwined and beautiful. They make you who you are and I would love to help you capture them!
My Dearest Gregory,
You are more than I ever imagined. I know that I’ve never done anything in my life to deserve YOU, just as I’ve done nothing to deserve God’s ultimate sacrifice and forgiveness. I will be thankful my entire life for YOU, our miracle. You are smart – the smartest little boy I know. You are kind and compassionate – even to the point of bringing me your medicine to fix me when I’m sick. You are loving and caring – you pat your friend’s backs at school to help them take their naps. You are stubborn – you know what you want and you don’t let anything hold you back. You are handsome – the most beautiful little boy I’ve seen in my entire life. You have such an amazingly sarcastic sense of humor – a perfect mix between mommie and daddy. YOU are my heart. I would walk through fire for you. The day you were born was the day that I began to fully live. I am so proud of the little boy that you have become and so excited to see the bigger boy you will grow into. I will never be able to express to you just how much my love for you is! I love you as much as the sky and more. I love you to the moon and back x infinity!!
